I'll be back ...

OK, after an incredibly busy December (don't want to go through that again, and the usual Christmas/New Year's festivities - I'm back.

Just to restate my goals, which are now my NY's resolutions for 2008 (the only ones I made).

Me: establishing a more healthy eating and exercise regime
S-Mac: work with him to get his fitness up so he can be on the 'A' basketball team by Term 1.

Me: exercise three times a week for a minimum of 40 minutes with 20 minutes being within my weight loss zone (60% - 70% max HR)
S-Mac: not set

Me: H = 1.73m, target BMI = 22, target weight = 66 kgs
S-Mac: H = 1.52m, target BMI = 17.7, target weight = 41 kgs

OK, now for the ugly stuff
CW = 87.5 kgs - yep, a few too many beers and way too much Christmas pud over the last few weeks.

Good reason to get back into the exercise.

Week ending 6/1:
Mon - walk - Ex mins = 32, Tz mins = 7, Av HR = 98
Tue - walk - Ex mins = 38, Tz mins = 18, Av HR = 107
Wed - walk - Ex mins = 41, Tz mins = 15, Av HR = 104

Food pluses and minuses:
+ All healthy food since Monday
+ No blowouts on portion sizes or snacks
- Two glasses of champers on Monday night
u]-[/u] Not enough water this week
u]-[/u] Missed breakfast Monday and Tuesday

All in all, I think it's not a bad start to the new year.
For the boys ...

That's a great start to the year, Macca! Keep it up!

Out of curiosity, how do you figure out your heart-rate while exercising? Do you have one of those heart-rate monitors that strap around your chest? I ask because I wanted to use my heart-rate to measure my exercise level and bought a watch that measured HR as well as exercise time. Problem is that it's utterly useless! You have to put your finger on a sensor for a minute and the slightest twitch ruins the results. I can't even get an accurate result while standing still let alone while running!

I'll copy your question and my response over to "Macca's Progress" - which is where I meant to post the previous entry but I got it wrong. :oops:

I would have liked to be able to delete this topic, but I can't so I'll just leave it to wither and die ... :twisted:

Meanwhile, check in at the topic I usually maintain and I can let you know.
