Weigh-in Wednesday (Week 2)


But, Mousie, thou art no thy lane
In proving foresight may be vain:
The best laid schemes o' mice an' men
Gang aft a-gley,
An' lea'e us nought but grief an' pain,
For promised joy.

Robert Burns
I realise as I start to type out this post that my intentions to try and do a series of posts about weight loss have left me floundering.  I'm not going to lie, I thought it'd be easy to knock together a post each week about how I've things have gone... then I sat down to bring a post together and I got bloggers-block. I had intended to use TactioHealth as my source for these posts, but it doesn't offer me what I want, so I've had to reconsider my approach. Instead, I've decided to use the Fitbit app as seems to collate all the information I think I want to publish.
I've been really good at recording the food I have eaten in this first week, but I have found that I've been caught in a catch 22 situation.  I am fully aware that shop bought food isn't as healthy as making your own versions, but they are much more convenient to scan into the MyFitnessPal app.  As you can see from the graph, I appear to have generally under-eaten calories this week, but there have been days when I know I've not eaten healthily so there's room for improvement next week.
Steps | 2 days out of 7
(Target 5 days out of 7)
Total | 33,940 steps

I know that I've not done my usual number of steps this week for one reason or another (not playing five-a-side) for one and I only met my 6K step target twice, which I would expect to meet at least 4 days a week.  The strange thing about last week is I reached my daily goal on Saturday, as I don't tend to do as much walking at the weekends.  I'm aiming to do more steps next week, which should be achievable.
Water | 3 days out of 7
(Target 5 days out of 7)

Since I downloaded the WaterMinder app last week, I have found that I've drunk plenty and have recorded how much I drink, so again, I'm surprised that I haven't met my target of drinking 2500ml per day, for 5 days. Looks like I may need to raise a glass (or two!)

Active Hours | 27 Total for the Week
(Target 30 Hours per Week)

Although I'm unsure as to how many active hours I'm supposed to be doing per week, I've set myself a target. This target is one I plan to increase as time goes by. Ideally I'd like to be reaching 35 hours per week by the end of 2017. But for now I seem to be consistently hitting 27 hours each week (not on purpose!) but in the short term I am aiming to habitually hit 30 hours per week and then gradually increasing my target towards the end of 2017.
