Day 65: One Week Hiatus

So I essentially took a week off from reporting and blogging. There were two reasons for this, one legit, one is an excuse. I have a few other projects and allowed myself some time to work on them, but in the end, I could still have made at least a quick post. I even forgot to track my food for one day. I have tracked my weight every day and all of my exercise.


Day Weight Food Exercise

============================================

Today 81.7 137 over 398 extra

Yesterday 81.9 162 over 178 extra

Two days ago 81.9 ? 0

Three days 82.3 382 over 0

Four days 81.8 707 under 392 over


As you can see, I at least stayed flat instead of gaining weight. You could call this a cheat week or a break, or a misstep. In some ways, like a cheat day, a cheat week can be beneficial. You take a break from work and come back ready to finish. Also, I really only cheated on some of my commitments to myself, such as blogging every day and keeping track of all calories consumed every day. I still did exercise almost every day and I stayed close to my target calorie intake as well.


I only have about 5Kg to go to reach my goal. I could do this in 5 or 6 weeks. That aligns with the start of soccer which would be good timing since I feel the extra bulk I was running with contributed to my knee injury.


One Kg a week for 5 weeks means an 1100 calorie deficit every day. 550 calories in extra exercise and 550 calories less in food. Standing at my desk for 6 hours is 360 calories, a 45 minute walk is 190 calories. I’ll do those 2 things 4 days a week. Running for 45 minutes burns 565 calories. I’ll do that 3 days a week. Then I need to cut down my food a bit more, but that shouldn’t be too much more difficult.
