Diet & Exercise update - Week 11

I was going reasonably well until Friday afternoon, when I bought some confectionery and also didn't go for my evening walk. My eczema was really bad as we had been rearranging office cubicle allocations at work and with all the 'tidying', packing, unpacking, and vacuuming being done at work my allergies were really kicking in. I've noticed that when I'm really sick and sorry for myself I tend to over eat. I also ate junk food and didn't get enough walking done on Saturday, but by Sunday I was feeling better and got a lot of walking done, in addition to playing squash for an hour with the boys and even doing my 5BX on Sunday night. Overall my average daily calories for the week were too high, and my activity (walking) too low, but it wasn't too bad.

I somehow managed to misplace my Aldi activity tracker on Saturday evening,  and couldn't find it on Sunday morning despite looking everywhere for an hour or so. In the end I decided to buy another 'Milo Champion Band' activity tracker from Woolworths for $30, and I used an 'Exacto' hobby knife to slice a window into the black Aldi wrist band as it was the right size to fit the Milo device. It looks quite cool (just like a proper FitBit) and the 'band' works quite well, although the Milo app is nothing flash. I managed to clock up 14,644 steps on Sunday, and my weight was down to 94.1 kg this morning, so this week is off to a good start.
