Apparently my ideal weight is somewhere between 65 - 88 kg (10 stone 4 and 13 stone 3, 144 - 185 pounds)
So I've got the rest of the year to lose at least 36 kg. That's 3/4 of a kg a week (about 1 3/4 pounds a week). That's pretty achievable I think. Only 500 KCal deficit a day.
I've been managing it so far by snacking throughout the day on raw fruit and veg, cutting down the portion sizes of the meals I do eat, and avoiding chocolate.
I've had a few cravings for fatty food. Just thinking about a big fat juicy cheese burger makes my stomach rumble.
It's not been too bad. The constant availability of fruity snacks makes it easier. If I fancy something I munch on some grapes, or an apple, or a carrot. I'm getting bored of eating salad now though. I need more variety in food.
I fell off the wagon a bit last night. Had a few cans of cider and ended up eating some mini cadbury fudge bars from the kids treat supply. I made sure to hide the wrappers though, or the kids moan at me :)
I got back on the bike this weekend as well. I've not ridden since mid-november. The weathers been fairly grotty, and I had a few colds and things that meant it was easier to just jump in the car.
I nice ride out to meet some people on Sunday was good, and I rode to work this morning.
I messed things up when I was cleaning my bike on the Saturday. One of the cones on the rear wheel had come loose, and I ended up spraying de-greasing cleaning fluid in there and making my back wheel a bit crappy. So I was up in the dark re-greasing the bearings and trying to squirt oil through my freewheel. It was working well for Sunday, so all was good.
In other home news, J has nearly finished gathering all the data for her disertation. I'm taking Thursday off to go tramping around the graveyard with her to collect the final bits. I've also got to do some data wrangling to extract data from approx. 300 html files that I downloaded. This is so that she can compare various things about death between two districts in Sheffield. My programming fu is a bit rusty.
