So in the last 2 weeks, I've lost 3.8lbs of fat . . . gained 2lbs of muscle . . . and 0.2lbs of water.

So the net loss is 1.6lbs. And the BF% is edging in the right direction.

I am pleased.

Stop moving the goal posts

Tuesday, April 20, 2010

So SP keep tinkering with my calorie range (when I change certain details) and it keeps increasing.

First I had to do between 1200 and 1550, then it moved to 1240 and 1600. Now it's 1270 and 1620.

And that was from lowering my goal weight.

  So that's it. I have cardio checked 7 days a week, but not because I want to do cardio all 7 days . . . more like any of the 7 days.

The problem I was having before was that if I decided to do cardio on a Tuesday, and Tuesday wasn't a cardio day (according to the schedule), there was no way I could enter it.

So now I have all 7 days as cardio and all 7 as strength.

    I was having issues with this- it seemed to be the difference between it listening to ME in terms of how many calories I burn a week (when I'd enter it in the box for if you know how many calories you burn) and if I tried to update my goals WITHOUT doing that (and since I say I'm doing cardio 6 days a week it WAY overestimates my calorie burn and then jacks up my calorie range).

After playing with it anyway, that's what I THINK was going on, maybe that is your issue too.

Up the hill

Monday, April 19, 2010

So I cycled into work again today. It felt easier than last week. That is good.
Hopefully it'll just get easier and easier each time.

So I got quite a lot of exercise as I also went to the gym after work.

So tomorrow, I'm going to have a (sensible) high-calorie day. I think I've earned it.



Apples and pears

Saturday, April 17, 2010

Usually I'm a pear person . . .
Apples are one of my least favourite fruits . . . right up there with oranges and grapes.

But lately I've been on a mission to find a variety of apple that I like the taste of. So I've been trialling different types each week.

So far I've tried Gala, Royal Gala, Cox, Braeburn, Cameo . . . and I liked the Cox ones best. The Braeburns were juicy; too juicy.

I didn't expect to like the Cameos but they were actually quite nice.

This week I'll be having Empires.

There's quite a few more varieties in my local supermarket that I haven't tried - Fuji, Heritage, Pink Lady, Fuji. . .

I won't bother with golden/red delicious or granny smith (since I know I don't like them) . . . or the cooking ones like Bramley.

But at the end of it all, I'll probably still prefer a nice crisp Rocha pear!



Setting goals

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

I know it's important to have goals, and I have some.

But it's good to have intermediate goals to help you along to the main ones.
And it's probably good to treat yourself (not with bad food) as achieve these mini-goals.
And this is where I fall short.

I'm not that interested in the milestones. I just want to get to the destination.

I guess my next mini-goal will be to bust the calorie limit (again) next Tuesday.

  I do set exercise goals but they're very short term (as with the food goals). For example, I know how many workouts and what exercise I want to achieve between now and the next Tuesday.

    It's hard to stay focused so mini goals are good, remember one step at a time and before you know it, you'll be at your destination! Why not set goals for your exercise as well? Have a great week! emoticon
