Tracking Blog week of Aug 4
Saturday, August 10, 2019
I've been overwhelmed with work. My semi-retirement went back to full time work, and all the stresses that go with it. I THINK things will go back to MY normal now.
I have gotten in my daily fitness. As a reminder, I'm going to add a 'current streak' line to my tracking blogs.
Sometimes you have to remind yourself you aren't a total failure, ya know?
date / calories in / total calories burned
Wed Aug 7 - 1279 / 2414
Thu Aug 8 - 1931 / 2403
Fri Aug 9 - 1213 / 3156 !!! (woo hoo - burned over 3000 cals!)
Sat Aug 10 - 1255 / 2629
** I am trying a form of Intermittent Fasting. For me, that's 2 non-consecutive days of ultra low cal eating. On those days, I eat highest protein / highest fiber that I possibly can. This keeps me from being hungry. I also plan these days around my workouts - days where my only exercise is walking or yoga.
The 'calories in' info is from Spark's nutrition tracker. The 'total calories burned' info is from my Garmin app. I have a smart watch that constantly tracks my heart rate, so I feel this is the most accurate way to track calories burned.
Current Streaks -
10,000 steps/day - 496 days
Nutrition tracking - 3 days

An oldie but a goodie. Love, love, love the Staple Singers! And Mavis is STILL rockin' it!
