The Next Episode…
Hope you’re ready for the next Episode…
This week got underway with the ‘App’ that David from 360 Degree Fitness suggested I download: My Fitness Pal, which logs all my KJ’s (I guess its French for Calories (Royale with Cheese anyone)).
I am suddenly very aware of the quantity of food I eat and how very easily you can blow out in a day. Even on the recommended, I feel conservative, setting that works on KJ intake for a loss of 1Kg a week, which allows me 13,000 odd KJ’s a day.
The key learning is that yeah, you’ll have a blow out. But don’t take that as a reason to continue to over indulge since ‘you’re in the red’. Message received Dave!
So after tightening up a little, I’m getting the idea of all this. I realise that to make my goal of sub 110kg, I’m going to have to push myself a bit harder. I’ve decided to reduce my intake to the setting which will see me losing 2Kg a week (11,004KJ/day). It’d probably be worth getting advice on weight loss at this rate, but I’ve never been a half measure sort of guy. All or nothing! This is not a good attitude to health and wellbeing when you don’t have all your chips pushed in.
Thought i’d do the righty and pick up a men fitness group session at a local community centre with Dave from 360 Degree fitness. Wow, I was hurting after that, sucking the big ones. My fitness needs some work.
Avg KJ/ day this week: 10,200 ish
Biggest day: 14,000 KJ
Off to work next week, this will be when it’ll be tough. Essentially alone for week on site.
I’m supposedly the master of my own destiny…
