Not really, but now I have your attention

Actually this is just a dull compilation of necessary - I didn't blog last week - stats and progress reports.
So, in the last 2 weeks I lost another 1.3 kilograms. That takes me well back into the swingin' Seventies at 79kg. Looking back to starting weight of 96 I've come a fair way. Looking down to goal weight of 69 there's still some road to hoe. That's with an 'e' on the end by the way. Someone pointed out to me, after I had sent her a Sparkmail with the chirpy-chirp subject line 'Hi Ho!', that that was possibly not the most flattering way to address an American girl. *great Australian blush*

Eating accountability was as follows for last week.
CALORIES - 7 days under range. Please don't look at me like that. I know!
CARBOHYDRATE - 7 days in range.
FAT - 2 days under, 5 days in range.
PROTEIN - 1 day under, 6 days in range.
Looks like I just need a few empty calories to make the numbers do the Can-Can. Hit me with a vegan whoopie pie, sunshine!

Exercise accountability was as follows for last week.
MINUTES - 1276, exceeded goal of 700 minutes.
DISTANCE - 147, exceeded goal of 100.
CALORIES - 8322, exceeded goal of 8200.
As you can see the minutes and distance are set low for what I'm actually doing. My main focus is on the calories.

I may not blog again before I go away. And I might not blog while on the road either. This Saturday 13th I'm heading to Italy for 3 weeks for work. I hope to be able to keep this up diet and exercise-wise...jogging gear is first stuff packed. But, likely as not I won't track online.
You'll miss me, won't you?

p.s. Seeing as I don't much like corgis or any dogs in particular, here are some red bananas I bought at the market yesterday. They get redder as they ripen; by about
Wednesday they should be ready to eat. Slight taste of raspberry...delizioso!

    I wonder which American girl that was? (Looks sweet and innocent)
    Lol, I hope this trip to Italy gets you out of your are doing a great job and what DTCELLO is true the most accurate way to calculate what you "should" weigh is by taking into account your body fat percentage as well. As this involves being measured for bouyancy in a pool of water with lots of expensive equipment, this might be a little out of reach for the normal person. Just keep that in mind and don't worry about numbers as much as how you feel in your own skin.

    MMMmmmmMMMMm... red bananas are YUM!

    I think you're doing exceedingly well, you know.. and not just at making me blush...

    I am bad about the calories and getting enough protein is like a neverending quest...

    I hate to fall back on the crutch of protein powder but keeping the deficits I do and STILL don't register any downward movement on the scale... something's gotta be out of whack...

    YOU have a lovely trip to the lovely Italia... I will expect to hear my sweet nothings in Italian when once you return..

    Ciao, Gorgeous...

    I happened to stumble upon your page and have been reading your blogs. I like your poetry too. Please do more. Hope you don't have to be depressed to write it, though!

    A comment about BMI ranges. I had a meeting with a dietitian last week and she told me that Pro basketball players (substitute cricket or whatever, here) are very well muscled and their BMI will say they are obese or overweight because muscle weighs so much. Remember, the BMI is based upon your height and weight, period. It does not account for your body composition.

    She told me that a better gauge of what your goal weight is will be what weight you feel well with. When do you feel "comfortable in your own skin" as Mireille Guiliano says in her book "French Women Don't Get Fat: The Secret of Eating for Pleasure". I think all men who are serious about eating healthily and enjoying life should read this book, so I recommend it to you.
    She has a website too, just look her up.

    Getting back to the dietitian, I think what she told me is trustworthy. emoticon
