I was, as usual, being facetious. But you knew that. It is good that people are thinking about their health. I don't tend to worry until something crops up. When it does, I go to the quack.

I gave you a :D smily. There is no greater poetry to show appreciation of where you are coming from.

Just done 2 hours of yoga in 37 degree heat. Pretty hard work but I'm super chilled out now!

Yoga is great.

I am very skeptical of Bikram yoga, other than extreme cases, but after a year of it, I was an inch taller. These days I stick to the yin.

Well, that was tolerable. 8.8k added to the total and I only spent a moderate amount of time reading the fire escape notices.

With the best, thats a good bit of PR, though I would say the Bedford team, theres, like, you know, 13 blokes who can get together at the weekend to have a game together, which doesnt point to expansion of the game. Point, yeah go on!

Safe to say that mood/motivation/anxiety are a bit of a roller coaster right now...

It's actually not Bikram yoga, it's vinyasa yoga but in a heated pod. They run a nurturing class (which is very Yin influenced) on Friday nights, but I find I need to have done a class beforehand to get any satisfaction out of it. I do find the heat makes me more mobile, but also I feel like I've worked harder.

Days like that happen. Don't beat yourself up over it and just go again today!

Set my alarm for 5:30 for the gym. Woke up at 4:45. In a way it's good that I always wake up before my alarm for the gym (and I mean always), but on the other hand it's rather annoying!

I had a similar one. Back home from Spain after being out there for work, knackered of the plane. Girlfriend suggests a beer.

That was that.  A few beers and chilling.

Will try to get back to it today.

I am eating a double sausage egg mcmuffin. I earned it with the 50 steps I took to get from car to counter.

Today is a DAY OFF.

Anyone feel brave enough to post a weekly weight figure?

Yesterday morning I weighed in at 93.5Kg.

Okay. I'm a 5'5" short-house and weigh 13st 2lbs. Giving me a BMI of 30.3 and into the obese red zone.

The NHS say I should be 10st 10lbs at my heaviest. I don't think I've weighed that little since before puberty.

But I should probably try and head in that direction.

Interesting prog on the radio: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m00020zc

It seems:

Exercise burns fat and increases muscle mass

Diet reduces fat but does not increase muscle mass

Muscle is 30% more dense than fat.

That is why people who exercise a lot are often disappointed in low level of weight loss. They may reduce in size but not in weight. Need to do some body measurements ( waist?) to see what is happening.

Need to exercise AND eat less.

My weigh is currently 97 kg, down from 115 kg three  years ago but up 6kg from a year ago. Downward trend resumed.

Yes, I'm not expecting to lose any weight by my middling to low amount of exercise.

I'll need to cut out the Sausage and Egg McMuffins referenced earlier.

*sniffs*

So long, old friend ...

I decided not to eat the biscuit that was served with my coffee. Then I ate it anyway, but this point is that I am making a sacifice.
