Nude Numbers (#23)


It’s been a while, but I have now adjusted my tracking stuff for my new 2008 goals. I’ve just posted them, or you can look at the Objective Data portion for more information. Also big changes in presentation this week – please let me know if you have trouble viewing or understanding the data.

Subjective Data

Last week was really the first week on my new plan. I had planned to start the week of 11/11, but I got dog-sick that week and then hurt my calf returning to lifting the week after and decided to completely rest until all pain was gone. This week was a hard start. I’m switching to lifting three days a week for 60-90 minutes, as opposed to my prior 5-6 days at 30 minutes. And you know what, it’s exhausting!

Also, I’m finding swimming to be exhausting. My kick is nonexistent.

Objective Data

Blue lines == actuals; Gray areas == my target range for that week.


This was a good start. I skimped on spinning but that was due to schedule more than anything else. I need to watch how quickly I gain weight – I’m eating OK but not great (a few too many cookies now that I’m trying to gain weight).

My swimming is pretty bad, and my kick actually moves me in the wrong direction, so I need to adjust that.


The major change for next week is I’m going to find and work with a swimming instructor for a few weeks to get my kick going. Otherwise, keep to plan.

Presentation Notes

I did a major rework of my dashboard for my winter goals, and hopefully to make it easier to see at a glance where I am. For example, if you look above you can quickly see I was “out of target” for spinning last week.

Lastly, these notes are always presented in SOAP Note format.
