Fitness notes

with 3 comments

Up a pound from yesterday, probably due to the lamb curry I made with some meaty bones I bought at Whole Foods. But: the New Balance walking shoes arrived, and I’m wearing them now. So today (and in days to come) I will be taking some walks, which should accelerate the fat loss.

My idea is to determine whether my knee problem was in fact due to the MBT design. Here’s the plan:

1. Take long walks in the New Balance shoes.

a. If my knee then starts hurting, it clearly wasn’t the MBT shoes at fault, but rather the combination of my weight and knee.

b. If the knee doesn’t start hurting, then switch to the MBT shoes for my walks.

After I walk a lot with the MBT shoes, I will note one of two outcomes:

1) No knee problems: Then it’s not the MBT design, but was my weight and knee.

2) Knee problems arise: Then it is the MBT design.

I’ll keep you posted.

  1. Might I suggest cutting back how often you weigh yourself. These small variations everyday probably aren’t true weight gain/losses. A lot is probably variation in water weight, more associated with salt intake and the like than the calories. A week to week weight would give you a more accurate picture without the frustrations (and false joys) of the daily weigh in.

  2. I know you’re right, but I do like the daily weigh-in. And in any event, I weigh 3 times per week at my diet counselor. Fortunately, the overall trend is in the right direction.

  3. On the other hand, my dietician recommended daily weigh-in before breakfast without clothes. She said that weighing once a week is one of those dieting myths that “everybody knows” but is not in fact borne out by research.
