A funny thing I noticed during these two weeks was that my weight had increased somewhat by the end of the week, but after I adjusted my macros on Sunday (increased them) my weight had dropped the next day (Monday). Also, another factor that played a role in my unstable weight readings, besides the different weigh in times, was that during week 1, I did my only HIIT cardio session on Friday instead of the usual Tuesday as I was writing exams that week. Usually my weight tapers down mid-week due to my cardio session so early on.
Week 1 (15-22 Nov) = I did my HIIT cardio on Friday, every other day y macros was on point, except for Friday the 21st when I went over my macros (carbs & fats). I had some treats that I accounted for- A magnum ice cream, some Woolworths Wild Dog gums and a chocolate log… Which, by the way, already send me over my macros. I also had 3 slices of home baked banana bread with some margarine, which I didn’t account for… so all in all, my guesstimation would be that I was over 25.5 g fats and 66g carbs total. My weights for this week was: Sunday- 59.0 ; Monday- 57.4 ; Tuesday- 57.7 ; Wednesday- 59.1 ; Thursday- 58.2 ; Saturday- 58.5
Week 2 (22-29 Nov) = This week I did not even do my HIIT cardio session at all. It was also evident in my weight readings, as I went up slowly. My macros went great this week, nothing over, nothing under. My weight dropped again by Monday after I increased my macros on Sunday, which is weird. My weights for this week was: Sunday- 59.5 ; Monday- 57.1 ; Tuesday: either 57.9 / 59.0 since my scale is dumb and never shows the same number.. these two came up most! Wednesday- 59.2 ; Thursday- 60.2 (my first 60kg mark) & Saturday- 60.2
My weight in this progress picture of my reverse diet may not be accurate because I forgot to whey myself and only remembered after I already drank water and ate half of my big bowl of porridge.. and I was also already fully dressed for gym, in my clothes as well as gym shoes!
