Week 2 report...

Shut up! I know this is late!!! The important thing is that I actually DID exercise - not that I was really late in writing about it! Anyway, here's what happened...

Bit of a funny week this one - I spent 3 days instead of 2 in Sydney, so that threw the schedule out a bit. I had every intention of going for a walk/jog in Bicentennial park on the Wednesday evening, but instead it hailed and we had a shitload of rain. I was really bummed about it. I also had a *big* night out with some work friends, and followed up with a *bigger* lunch (albeit minus the alkymahol) on the Friday.

19/5 43 min
20/5 31 min
21/5 - Sydney
22/5 - Sydney
23/5 - Sydney
24/5 55 min
25/5 41 min

And the moment of shame:
BMI: 36.74 (-.06 over last week)
Weight: 115.5kg (+0.5 over last week)
Weight loss to date: 1.2kg

So, not great, but knowing how much I ate and drank in Sydney, I'm not surprised. Even though I am not going to go nuts about altering my diet, just monitoring my weight weekly helps to stay aware of the influence of my daily food intake. I know I think more about what I am eating now - I might not be going for a salad, but I am certainly not upsizing! Lets see how it goes next week... (you wont have to wait long, I'm about to type it up aswell!)

It's ALIVE!!!

Ok, so maybe its been a while since we last did some blogging, but we've got a good excuse! Moving country, finding work, finding a home, having a baby... these things take up a lot of time. I am willing to admit 6 months is a LONG time though ;)

Anyway, my reason for starting up this blogging again is largely selfish - I just need a place to write some stuff down. Specifically, to keep a log of exercise. I turned 32 last Monday (12th) and Loz and Beth gave me a Wii and Wii Fit (not sure exactly how much Beth contributed there, but I am grateful none the less!)

So, to commence the Blog of Shame, here are my vital stats as of 12/5/2008:
BMI: 34.1
Weight: 116.7kg

There are other stats in there, but they appear largely useless...

Here's how it will work... I only set up the Wii late on the Monday, so started training on the Tuesday. At the end of each week I'll have a weigh in, and see how it goes!

Now, here are the weeks stats:
12/5 4 min
13/5 62 min
14/5 - (Sydney)
15/5 - (Sydney)
16/5 37 min
17/5 52 min
18/5 64 min

And now the vital stats:
BMI: 36.80
Weight: 115.3kg
Weight loss to date: 1.4kg

The Wii also allows you to log other exercises (walking, cycling, - even things like cooking! I guess anything that has you on your feet and active...) I will be logging walking and cycling activities in there, but wont bother posting them here.

Hopefully I will be able to keep this up (both the exercise, and the Blog!!!)

I also still have a bunch of photos to upload, so I'll see if I can get that sorted this week too.

'Till next time...
