March Weigh-In Results and Workout Progess Report

Stay tuned for a Birthday Burpees update at the end!

Sorry for the delay, folks! Normally I do my monthly weigh-in at the first of the month, but I was in Michigan when March began, and I didn’t weigh myself until I returned home, a few days later. This post was further delayed due to my birthday and the enormous Birthday Burpees challenge that came along with it.

No more delays! I stepped on the scale last week, and it said…

…247 pounds. I’m holding steady at the same weight, for the third consecutive weigh-in.

I’ve been exercising like a madman lately, so I can chalk up the lack of a loss to my eating, which, while good, could be better. I’m doing what I can, though, and I’m happy with maintaining, which is easier said than done.

And I don’t want to forget that 247 pounds means that I’ve lost and kept off 155 pounds. That is still so awesome. Here’s my whole weight-loss chart:

Now back to that “exercising like a madman” comment… here’s the proof. It’s my February workout calendar:

Every dot equals a workout. There are 25 dots. 25 workouts in 28 days means I exercised 89% of the time – which is above my 85% goal. Nine of those workouts were lifting weights, including the Totally Drenched class I took. I only took one class at Slimmons, but it was a good one.

Another sign of exercise success? My cardio miles chart. I log all the miles I complete doing any form of cardio (running, elliptical, biking, etc.) and add it all up. In February, I added 50.5 miles to my total, bringing it to 1,443.8 miles.

I’m closing in on 1,500 miles!

Time for a quick Birthday Burpees update. After doing 400 burpees in three days, I thought I was ready to slow it down, but on Monday I tried a new tactic. I did 20 burpees every hour, on the hour. (Working from home makes it easy to stay in gym clothes all day!)

Spreading my workout out across the entire day was a new experience for me, and I liked it. I started at 9am, and went until 6pm – that’s 200 burpees! I had fun adding all those hash marks to my progress sheet:

That brings my total to 600 – just a few dozen burpees away from reaching the 2/3 mark. Only 370 burpees to go!

Keep it up, David!

  1. Hi David,

    I love that I stumbled across your blog and found somebody else whose been doing a ton of burpees. 400 in a day is impressive – I love how you broke it down. I’d have to set an hourly timer to remind me to do that, haha!

    I love how you’re tracking your progress. Keep it up! Looking forward to reading more. 😉

      Thank you so much for the note – it reminds me that I gotta do some burpees today! 🙂 400 was over the weekend, the most I’ve done in one day is 200 – and that was plenty! Welcome to Keep It Up, David… and congrats on your own burpee success!
