Here i'm going to keep track of my progress in the BGG Weight Loss Challenge.

External image


The cold facts. I'm overweight and I don't look great in my clothes due to the recent development of a belly. I'm also chronically unfit and have a health condition that can be improved by exercise (diagnosed last Tuesday). I also totally believe that a healthy lifestyle is better across the whole spectrum of quality of life.

Weight: Overweight.
Physique: Lacks definition with belly.
Fitness: Chronically unfit.

Some basic thoughts:

Overall:
I'm not going to worry about weight but instead focus more on sustainability and improving my health. I'd also like to improve my fitness and physique with regular exercise.

1. Exercise at least 3 days a week, with the intention of increasing the intensity of activity on a weekly basis. Each day do 30 press-ups and 40 reps with weights. Ideally Find time to do yoga.

2. Try to track things - Exercise, Diet, Sleep and Mood.

3. I'm going to look at my diet and serving controls.
a) Less caffeine (1 coffee a day - 2 max). No shop bought ones.
b) Fewer deserts (2 a week max).
c) More fruit and vegetables.
d) A concerted effort to eat breakfast.
e) Booze cut right down. (6 units a week max). No drinking to get drunk, I will hand in my Scottish passport (This is ethnocentric I'm aware... being Scottish is about doing something unhealthy to excess so substitute with chips, cigarets, crisps, Irn-bru etc).
g) Be acutely aware of liquid calories. Not just fizzy pop but also cappuccinos which are insanely calorific, I now note.

4. Be pro-active and productive.

5. Due to bigger health issues develop and normalise a regime around supplements and pills.

Goals:

1. Get to health weight.
2. Look and feel good in clothes. Would like to lose 2 inches from waist.
3. Get fit and develop a sustainable exercise regime.
4. Do yoga or/and meditation.
5. Develop a more positive response to stress and more productive approach to tasks.
6. Sign up for classes in something.

Supplements:

Kinda a placebo you know works... (some of these I've been told to take by medical folk.)

Omega 3,6,9
Multivitamins
Vitamin D3

Charting tools:

I'm using http://www.myfitnesspal.com

QnA:

You're not tracking carbs?

Yeah, I'm not bothering to radically change my diet (I don't want to work that hard, as BJ kinda says). I don't really eat that much carbohydrate anyway and I'm not that concerned about losing weight as I am about staying healthy, energised and creating something sustainable.

You're not drinking - are you a turtle?

I am drinking and trying to drink more, I'm just not noting it down. Lots of water and Ginger or peppermint tea.

Seriously keeping hydrated will:
1. Stop you confusing being dehydrated with being hungry
2. Can make you feel fuller
3. Aid digestion.
4. Make you think, feel and be better.

What made you fat?

My diet nutritionally is pretty excellent but, well for a while, I've been blaming my weight on being middle aged and my metabolism slowing down, occasionally I've blamed it on my lover's sweet tooth.

Nah, I'm fat because:

1. I have two+ cappuccinos a day - I kinda assumed it was just skimmed-milk they were adding and thought they were smaller than they were and I always say no tanks to the chocolate sprinkles.
2. When I make a sandwich I make two sandwiches and eat both. It was news to me that a sandwich is just 2 slices of bread... that's half a sandwich.

3. I love the booze and always have done. When some folks say one more drink I say I'll have 10 more and see how I feel. (That sounds bad, however, I don't drink very often, but when I do!)
4. I do most of the cooking and really enjoy it but I make enough for 4+ people for a household with two and it all gets eaten. The idea of left overs sickens me. "Yesterdays meal today!@ What are we carrion!?".

5. Exercise - I think I stopped exercising when I was 11. Why? I don't know. Less emphasis put on running in daily life.
6. Ah my passion for pursuing gout and being a foodie. Now I've never had gout but my diet is rich in everything associated with it. Some people would kill for love, others money or drugs; I'd kill for cheese... again.

Day 27


Ramblings:

* Today turned out quite enjoyable and quite productive. At one point things were quite hectic with something expected to happen, that didn't happen. Anyway I it all went fine and I can do without the drama.
* As I missed out on a bit of excitement, I pushed the boat out at lunch and got a lunch that I find a challenging eat... while recognising it's a good dish.
Beetroot - quite acidic
wi
Goats Cheese - every time I eat goats cheese I never see it coming - I either hate it or love it... maybe both.
* Beetroot is a one of the most excellent vegetables. I mean it's almost in the same class as an aubergine. So incredibly pretty when cut into and the colouring is fun too.

Trivital Statistics:

Sleep: 7.00
Mood: Dandy (while I hate rest days they do do me good.)

Day 29


Ramblings:

External image

* A day of rest.
* As a wee treat I bought a hitechish new scale. Our old one, which I've been using, is rusty and somewhat dubious. We shall see what the new one tells me. The old scale will continue to be used for the rest of the challenge though.

Trivital Statistics:

Sleep: 9 hours or so
Mood: Got to get busy. (Edit: and so I did thus improving one's mood.)

Day 30


Ramblings:

* Tip for you all.

Don't buy a set of new scales as a treat. I did and we tried them out at say 10pm yesterday.

Um it said that my lover and I were both 1 stone heavier... oh boy was that a fun activity before bed.

Um yeah our new scale is crazy you can lose or gain weight by stepping off it and then stepping back on. yuk

Back to the shop tomorrow. I can't believe we turned our back on good old rusty.

Dear Diarist,

Well here is where my challenge abruptly ended. Nothing to tell - just lost my focus and got tricked into working too hard... There may also have been waffles and, no doubt, Brie.

Anyway I learned a lot from taking part. I have signed up to the autumn challenge and hope to go the distance this time.

Today


External image


My last day of eating whatever I wish on a whim was fairly fruitful.

I did not have breakfast (ok I had 2 espressos). My lover and I went shopping. She's off to a northern island for the next week - so I'll be home alone. She wanted sweets for the journey, as its my last day p, what the heck I'll have and handful or three too.

Brunch was eggs(2) on buttery sourbread (2). I helped her pack... Well at least stood in a warm proximity and supplied the tunes (Caitlin Rose the Stand-In). After she left I had a beer out of sheer badness. Dinner for one was creamy gnocchi with mushrooms and courgettes, for three.

Weighed myself today and was pleased to find that weight wise I was pretty much picking up where I left off. I put this down to what I learned last time, including such obvious stuff as never having two cappuccino in a day, crisps from a bowl never from the packet and bread is ridiculously calorific.

I won't be radically changing anything from my commitments last time. This time I'd like to focus on exercise slightly more but healthy and sustainable are the watch words.

Autumn Challenge starts here.

Day 1:


External image
Ramblings:

* And so it begins.
* Our Laptop is broken at the moment, so still to figure out how to knock up the spreadsheet bits...
* Day off but popping into my lovers work for a walk and to pick someting up which she forgot.
* Today started with my first avocado in quite a while. During the diet I find I'm on track when I start with either an egg or an avocado. Job for later tonight is to hard boil a carton of eggs for an easy good start to the day.
*Got slightly hijacked at my lover's work but a 2 mile walk in the sun, with the swag for a Greek salad bought. On the hunt for dragon fruit but without success today.

Temptation:

New section to chart successes and sucsesful temptation.

Day off an no booze but boy was I tempted. Avoided adding a dash of smoothee to water.

Helped myself to an ice lolly.
At the last second 2 hrs after dinner I ate rather than refrigerated the second salmon fillet...

And boy did it bite me - putting both fat and protein into the red. We're still in learning mode and this is a good lesson, bang on target till I thoughtlessly became a hoover. There is always tomorrow.

Day 2


Ramblings:

* A day of travel in two parts. Very enjoyable working with new people. Tomorrow's going to have to be a big day as there's a fair few jobs to be done and at least one fire to be put out.
* Too busy to be hungry and as I started with an egg why would I be. Beetroot and goats cheese salad thing for lunch - always an enjoyable challenge but a challenge none the less.

External image


* Scotland is gloriously sunny... September and July must be on a job share.
* The dragon fruit hunt is scheduled for tomorrow lunch time - if Pandemic Legacy is out I might get to the game shop too.
* A youth mocked me today pointing at my lovely knitwear and facial hair, remarking 'chucklevision'. A very old and odd reference, I was the only one to get it... What an unusual youth - the Alan Bennet of kid put downs. (Pretty much just one for the UK contingent. Chucklevision was a kids show about two bungling brothers...)

External image


My most enjoyable ever time as a victim of youth wit, was a wee lad putting on a voice and crying at me - "Harry you're a wizard!" While I wore my cape like rare coat and black rimmed glasses. Very cutting - very funny, even thirdparty passerbys enjoyed it. Call it a fashion tax.


Trivital Statistics:

Sleep: 8 hours
Mood: buoyant
Caffeine: 4 espressos 2 coffees. (Kinda inevitable with visiting/training)
Exercise: 10 mins on bike, light weights.

Thank you Ms Goat - Feta and goat's cheese.


Temptation:

An extra double espresso which really wasn't nessisary.

Also had a second Stoatie on the way home... But did check my calories to see if it would be ok.

Not a lot of poetry in it but a bit of art (less still with my smudge) and intrigue - 4/10.

I wonder if it's another work of young Alan Bennett of yesterday.

There's a Rousseau sentiment somewhere in one of his contradictory autobiographies that goes something like this, 'I cannot beautify, I must create'. Said when he was happily destitute.

Temptation:

Walked round Waitrose (the posh supermarket, hence sea bastard). Hell they have nothing for me when I'm on a diet. Cheese, bread, cold meat, dressed crab, onion soup and booze is all they're to me. The fish came with butter gobs to add to it... Not for me.

There goes my fat target for the day - worth it though.

Day 8


Ramblings:

* A good day of doing to be done. What a different a day makes, sunset, red moon and the storms pass.
*Submitted my weight.
* Well my lover and I are currently in a cold war over the salt we use. I'm from a Maldon family, I'm a Maldon man; she's from a Maldon home, she was a Maldon woman. Now some ten years into our relationship and she's buying salt from the 'Cornish Salt Company'. We've discussed how she's wrong but still she persists. Today we needed new salt, I bought Maldon but put it in the Cornish container... It'll make me laugh when it gets read out in court. whistle

* Day off. Organised the DVDs and picked up two cooperatives Robinson Crusoe: Adventures on the Cursed Island and The Grizzled.

External image


One of my favourite films of all time... Probably not PETA's.

Even thinking about the scene with the anaconda still makes me lose my mind. Fun fact, according to the dvd extras, they couldn't get the prop snake to work so the actors really wrestled an anaconda.

Intermission:

Well now, it's been a little while. Honestly I thought maybe 6 months. Turns out a little over 12. Oh bother.

I'm going to have another crack at this. I'm not quite sure why I walk off. I just get distracted, give in or get bored. Someone needs me in another room and I've thought of something funny to say.

I want to be trim and healthy... only seemly not that much. Well it's a new year so let's have another crack at it.

Day 1



External image

The truly great news is I start this personal challenge* lighter than I've even started before. The simple truth is that taking part in this process has made me aware of the basics of healthy eating and for the most part I've stuck to them. Crucially this time I need to not only lose weight but gain energy and get fit, a previous goal but one that I did little to achieve.

*I've not signed up officially as I've missed the deadline and it irritates me even more when I quit before the season is over and with Ryan giving up his time chart it all.

So let's call this a dry run and a fresh start. I like the idea of writing up a piece at the end of the day, posting openly helps to provide an element of interest and external support/authority... which I will ignore at will.


Ramblings:

Today has been on the cards for a while.

Quite steadily and deliberately over the past week, my lover and I ate all the chocolate in the house and drank all the booze. Goodbye temptation!

"If chance will have me king slim, why, chance may crown me thin me down".

And with glee, through no effort on my part* today I received a rather spiffy set of scales. Thank you universe, I shall use these. (*Ordered online - ole' Rusty is again moved to the cupboard of rare return).

External image


I shopped and bought the beginnings of the healthy food: fish, fruit and seeds. I went down the cheese isle and winked at the brie... they winked back and the blue looked like it knew more than it was letting on. My pace quickened.

Trivital Statistics:

Sleep: 6 hours (I need more sleep)
Mood: Good.
Caffeine: 2 Coffees
Exercise: 20 mins walk.

Temptation:

I put some Anchovies in the pasta - totally unnecessary, far too salty, really silly.

Day 2


External image



Ramblings:

Today went well. I got up early to have breakfast. I succeed, my first porridge in many moons. The day itself came and went as days tend to do.

I've started to read The Shining while travelling. Quite a fair read so far. I arrive home tired, famished, thirsty and set to making a vegetable curry (half my entire vegetarian repertoire). I don't fully succeed... in that I put some beef in it.
External image


I also used a curry paste, which hells bells was a mistake, like a diet torpedo - good to know. Ok you got me... I didn't use a tea spoon I used 2 table spoons... and a little more. Oh yeah and coconut milk... which it turns out doesn't go hand in hand with the diet thing. whistle


Trivital Statistics:

Sleep: 7 hours (I need more sleep)
Mood: Good.
Caffeine: 3 Coffees
Exercise: 20 mins walk.

Temptation:

1. I used a curry paste.
2. I used way more curry paste than required.
2. I cooked with coconut milk (and made no attempt to skimp... or use the same amount as a normal person would).
3. I put some beef in the curry.

Day 3


External image










Ramblings:

Today was pretty good. It was a day about doing other people favours, which I much prefer to doing things the other way round.










I got up early to drop off a set of keys so my lover could stay in bed. Missing breakfast I walked for 20 mins in the early morning half-light… this favour cost me my porridge and resulted in the odd compromise of a tuna sandwich in the moonlight while the sun was a bewildered promise.

Work was rewarding with some major bureaucracy achieved, which I may have been resting on. The phone rang twice and I achieve two more favours. Lunch saw a return of my old friendly nemesis the beetroot, goats cheese salad. A great bite but still challenging. Two further favours are granted as I travel home. For my good deeds I secure tonights tea - Fresh Tuna fish (yeah just realised I’ve already eaten tuna today!), asparagus and tatties. It came with a free bottle of wine. I selected a Chilean Cabernet Sauvignon and passed it on to to a Co-worker.

Really enjoying reading The Shining - had the scene with the cook today. Really enjoyable and well conceived. I wonder if Mr King ever wished he hadn’t given the idea over to the limitations of the horror genre. Like sacrificing something.

Tomorrow is a day long meeting and could pose a challenge to eating. There will be a pub trip and then my lover and I are going out to tea. Hmmmm…

Ramblings:

Today was a fair mix. Some uplifting, some chaotic, some healing, some confusing. In the pub after I was vaguely good (A GnT and a pint), then my lover and I went out for noodles. Not bad at all; any day that ends in noodles ain't half bad.

A day off. Pretty successful lots of housework, a dentist appointment and a bulk uplift ordered. I also took it easy.

Foodwise I've learned that my salt content needs to be addressed. I'd make a poor slug.

I also started doing some weights today and was on the exercise bike.
