Operation Get Dan Diced Week 6 FINAL Update
I am DICED! I did it! I made it! And thank God it’s over.
It’s been a tough journey. But, yes, despite my deep contemplation and pondering thoughts of last week, it WAS worth it!
Week 6 Progress Pics
I wrapped up the end of Operation Get Dan Diced with a professional photoshoot. I used my pal and awesome photographer Nick Velasco (http://www.nickvelasco.com/)
There’s a lot more pics on their way, but here’s a few that Nick sent over for now.
My body weight
Let’s take a look at my weight fluctuations across the six week program:
Average AM Bodyweight (when I’m at my heaviest):
Week 1 – 77.2kg
Week 2 – 76.7kg
Week 3 – 77.3kg
Week 4 – 76.9kg
Week 5 – 77kg
Week 6 – 76.5kg
Average PM Bodyweight (when I’m at my lightest):
Week 1 – 73.6kg
Week 2 – 72.9kg
Week 3 – 73.5kg
Week 4 – 73.3kg
Week 5 – 73.3kg
Week 6 – 73.7kg
FINAL DAY = 72kg at time of photoshoot
So as we can see, overall my bodyweight pretty much remained constant over the 6 weeks, despite the fact that the way I looked changed drastically. Goes to emphasise that the scales alone are a poor judge of progress!
My calories over the six weeks went from 2,100 to 1,800 in gradual decreases. Doesn’t sound like a big difference, but it sure felt it!
This week’s step count was about 17,850 steps a day on average. Remarkably my steps over the six weeks increased from my daily average of 15,000 a day that I started at. Remember, I don’t wear my FitBit during exercise. Considering how much training I was doing and how poor my energy levels were, this is very surprising! I think I was consciously trying to move more, to battle my low energy and to keep dropping body fat!
My sleep average was over 6 hours a night this week. It’ crazy how my sleep actually improved!
What do I do now?
I won’t talk about this just yet. Stay tuned! To be continued!
