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


today's good news:

And a song:

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

    How is that form of intermittent fasting that you described working for you? How long have you been doing it?

    Let me remind you that no way you should ever think of yourself as a failure! Going by how I know you you're a wonderful person. So you don't get permission to see yourself as a failure!!! (There!)
