So, Iíve been away from sparkpeople for a little while, but still sticking with my goals and slowly getting there. Iíve been on holidays from work for a week, while I just veged out, tried to relax and get ready for the new school year and give myself a break. I relaxed the exercise while on holidays, and found myself eating a little more, but still stuck with it and managed a meagre .1kg loss. I also upped my cals to 1360 a day, as recommended on the calorieking.com.au webpage. I think this didn't help with the loss, so I've reduced my basic cals to 1200 a day, but allow myself to go over that by about 100 or so if I've been exercising hard.
I bought some new scales, but will be returning them this week. They are just really crappy! I wanted some that measured body fat, which this one did, but the buttons kept getting stuck, and didnít respond to pressing. Not good for a brand new unit, so back to the shop it goes. Iíll try and get another set at a similar price, but hopefully a better brand. I havenít really researched it, I thought theyíd all be about the same. Unfortunately Iíve lost the receipt! So Iíll see how I go with just my visa statement and the price sticker on the box. Iím still using my old scales for the time being, which are a bit temperamental, but seem to be showing the numbers on a downward slide, so thatís ok.
Iím going to do some poking around the SP site now and see what Iíve missed. I find all the forums a little too hard to follow with the time that I have, but like to see how others are going.
I hope that anyone else thatís reading this and trying to lose weight is going great.
