Sunday – Week 8 Day 7
I’ve been trying to come up with some thing new for week nine. I know full well Christmas week isn’t going to be good and chances are I’ll take two or three days off, but that’s no reason to give up completely.
I’ve been looking at some of the information available on Fitbit and MyFitnessPal and want to use some of that to drive next week. According to Fitbit my dinners take up 46% of my daily calories, but for weight loss this should be around 30% with the majority being breakfast and lunch. I’ve started a 12 week Fitbit plan to try increasing my activity levels, the last two weeks I’ve been doing quite well and next week my target is 1,022 activity calories burnt, so this too is another target.
MyFitnessPal says daily intake should be 1,390 calories and I don’t tend to go over that anymore. However any additional exercise tends to get added on. I would like to see myself ending each day with at least 700 ‘spare’ calories. I’m not planning to starve myself to get there, I want to earn them.
So, what are the targets?
One: Lower dinner calorie intake to around 30%
Two: Burn 1,022 activity calories
Three: End each day with at least 700 calories remaining
Four: Maintain my current Fitbit targets of 5,549 steps and 16 floors
Five: Travel 36 km on the treadmill by the end of the week, that’s three 12km sessions
