Glad I started to exercise again! Fell off the wagon, being diagnosed with kidney stone and then with a nodule in my lungs. Nothing to worry about, nothing. They compared with older images, the lung nodule was there also 6 y ago. Kidney is now free. Sometimes these lung nodule/encapsulations just happen.
and Happy Thanksgiving everybody!
ALL the tristesse, misery, WE WON'T experience! We exercise!
I bought this great book today, can't wait to hold it in my hands and exercise with it. ☺️💪
I made Cheddar-JalapeÃ±o- Biscuits. Just 14-15 grams p. piece.
Sweat for health. In 34 min 315 kcal burnt on stationary bicycle.
Just 18 min cardio today. 149 kcal burnt and ate over my kcal range. ðŸ˜ Tomorrow will be better
Not a good day. Didn't meet my goal. Tomorrow it's going to be better.
Stats: It was a good day. Goodnight friends! âœ¨
Today stats - 265% of goal done.
Bought a new book, it has lots of good advice. Your local library has it, too. //My lunch / dinner after workout: risotto left-over, boiled potato, herring in wine, 55g FETA, tomato/jalapeÃ±o-salad, pomegranate juice, green tea.
Hubby surprised me with this breakfast: 160g boiled potato, 55g smoked salmon, 2 poached eggs, 2TBS parsley, green olives, 49g raw mushroom, 2 espresso, 1TBS half 'n half, 50 ml milk 1% fat. // And- I'm already at the gym with my accountability Sparkpeople-partner ðŸ˜‰ðŸ’ª
My feet were also happy today in new running shoes ðŸ˜Š(yes, the 2nd pair, thought one needs more than just one pair) For accurate measurement while running I use POLAR sensor.
Today cardio: stationary and road bicycle, 71 min total, 17.19 miles, 843 kcal burnt. But I binged on tortilla chips, it was like I could not stop. ðŸ˜ Tomorrow I try better.
Today stats: 254% of the goal. Total of 99 min. exercise.
My feet are happy - in new running shoes ðŸŒž
PROGRESS: 39% body-fat today. (In February it was 53.6%.) ðŸ’ªâœŒï¸ Healthy is up to 24%. Long way to go lol
Stationary bike exercise today; the Polar- watch gave me 51 more burn calories. The HR on the bike was much higher than the HR on the watch, I wear chest strap, it should be accurate. I need to learn more..
Was actually an 18 miles-bike ride. No idea why it considers it in the total activity pictogram as a '10 -miles ride.
Goal reached 707 % today. Not bad at all. ðŸ’ªI love my new Polar-watch ðŸ˜
Stats: today was the 'weights - day'.
Interesting, the difference. Did a 48 min run. Green pic is the old treadmill, distance 2.35 miles, has not my vitals. Black pic is the POLAR watch strider, I wear it on my running shoe together with the HR chest-strap, it's calibrated and shows the double amount burnt calories. Also the in-depth-analysis is useful. I see when I burn fat or how many % from all burnt kcal. A nice toy! ðŸ˜
I did a fitness test with my new v800 POLAR watch. I'm surprised it considers my fitness being very good, my BMI is 34.4 obese. It doesn't know about my angina pain, I guess. Perhaps the pain disappears one day when I keep the exercise routine?
Body-fat PROGRESS! ðŸ’ª One day ago I was 41.0% body-fat. In February I was 53.6%.
Stationary cycling today, 30 minutes, 308 kcal, 9.9 miles, level 21, 22.4mph.

Ohh the full moon in our window just now.. I finished the workout and can't get enough of it..I meant - of this moon. lol
Today: I think these kcal are BMR included..can't be so much. First time stats, I need to get familiar with the new Polar watch and its two apps. But I burnt in 86 min 768 kcal- says the other source (Cal Plus).

My health is worth it/I'm worth itðŸ™ƒ LOL
