A huge drop!

Another one of those landmark days a HUGE drop in weight,
well from 88.1 kg to 87.5 kg

I have done next to nothing this week by way of exercise , had one ‘fast’ day, perhaps my poor old body needed a rest or perhaps something else is at play?

Whatever and whyever it is I am a happy bunny – even enjoying my porridge after handing over a full on fry up to son for his breakfast! I have my mini fried brekkie at the weekend when I can really savour it. i find that, for me, a ‘treat / cheat’ has to be that something special, time taken to truly enjoy it or there is no point.


The line that really matters is the orange line but the blue line is
pretty exciting at the moment. This is now a November challenge
to see just what is possible over one month.

The confusing thing is that we are now 18 days into a downward continuous
trend so I will post some numbers tomorrow or over the weekend.

So good or bad the 30 day November challenge is on.

This graph shows how the Measured & Smoothed figures vary

M&S - all-time -01-2013-11-01_194054

This is the M & S data plotted since records began


The “smoothed” figure is normally higher than the measured figure – the “maths” keeps a little credit or loss in reserve and drip feeds it into the results over time – assuming there is not a gain. If there is a gain it buffers the gain and uses its reserve to avoid sharp changes,

Dream day ~TJ108

What a brilliant start to the day, had the drop in visceral fat yesterday and this morning was just the most perfect weigh in so far.

Weight – down
Muscle mass – up
Fat mass – down
Calories required – down
BMI – down
Visceral – constant

Waist, abs and hips all smaller

Maybe I should buy a lottery ticket! But then again I don’t think the way I feel can be beaten. I earned this day, I worked, sweated and cried for it, I went way out of my comfort zone in so many areas of my life and it has all come together on this day.

Couldn’t have done it without Steve and the full support of my family – thanks all

And now onward and upward still a way to go – can’t get complacent.

Can’t wait to see what graphics Steve will add to this!

Happy, happy, happy ~TJ106

run - 2013-10-22_095850Little note to share my joy, I had a one unit drop in visceral fat today – wooo hoo! It’s been a long time coming and will probably wobble around for a bit before it settles but great news, a little bit safer from all those diseases now!

Makes all the sweat worthwhile, also dropped a bit of weight this past week !

Todays exercise ~TJ96

I had a brilliant day today 3 separate bouts of exercise, the gentle group walk – 1.87 miles – very slowly

Then my fartlek thing in Mynydd Mawr park – 3.19 miles but a sub fifty minute 5 k 49:32 for 5.04km VERY pleased with that. After the two-minute recovery I went for a little stroll to cool down.

All in all I did 6.1 miles burnt 1344 calories (according to my digifit account) and ran/walked 6.1 miles.

Trying for 10k walking tomorrow see how it goes, hopefully will keep running under control and be able to use the energy to sustain the longer distance.

Steve gave me a gold star for today – yay!!!

gold star

Thanks Steve

Best results ever! ~TJ57

Well what a week, learnt how to do interval training, ran quite a bit (in short chunks) and this morning hit the lowest ever fat mass and highest ever muscle mass (link to my thoughts – opens in a new window) and a drop in weight! Go Lizzie (my reptilian brain that controls all this stuff).

I am on top of the world today – thanks to Steve and Lizzie and a little bit of work from me!
