Sorry for the Delay
I know. I haven’t been here for over a week. Bad Aussie Ragdoll!
I guess I should start with a report on my diet progress. I have lost some more weight, but I did have a blow out over the weekend. I do love my Perky Nanas though. I have been trying to be better this week. Still not perfect, but a bit better than before I started the whole journey. I still have a long way to go. I do record my food intake in My Fitness Pal. It’s a free app you can download for iPhone and use on iPad. You can also use the online version.
I have heard that if you have the Body Media device, you can now sync the data from that device with your My Fitness Pal data. I do have one, but I ceased my subscription to the device. I do have a Polar F7 monitor and watch. When I finally get to go to the gym for a swim I will be able to wear it for the walk to the bus as well for the swim itself. The Polar F7 is water resistant and can be worn in the pool. The Body Media device is not water resistant, so if you are using swimming as your primary method of exercise (because of weight and injury issues, for example) you cannot use it to monitor your calorie expenditure during that exercise. I wish My Fitness Pal was able to import data from different devices, like the Polar series.
I found today that I can’t always trust people. Let’s just leave it at that. I will say that I am very disappointed that they couldn’t come to me first.
The house hasn’t progressed any further yet. Still a very big work in progress. The new stitching frame still hasn’t left the UK. If it hasn’t left by Monday, I think I will need to phone them to see what is happening with it. Everything I ordered was in stock when I ordered it, so I don’t quite understand why the delay in shipping them. Sigh. I guess this is supposed to teach me patience.
Talk again later.
