I’ve been to the gym all of zero times this week. Yup zero. I spent most of my time laying on the couch trying to recover from the flu. As I’m writing this on Saturday night I think I might actually be over it.
I did lose weight. Four pounds of it. This is more than I planned to lose this week, a week in which I pretty much had no physical activity.
Staying mostly on track with the eating is likely the reason for why I got these results.
I’ve converted from using SparkPeople.com (SP) to MyFitnessPal.com (MFP). I liked SP but I love MFP. MFP is a much less busy website and it is not an assault on the eyes like SP is. The food database is better and has a lot of Canadian specific products listed in it. You can customize the number and names of the meals. MFP is also like a mini facebook with your fitness friends online. Find me there as ‘onetwo8′.
The day before my introductory post I played in a charity tournament that raised money for Christie Lake Kids. It was a lot of fun and I had never played in full gear outdoors before. It was almost a perfect day for the ice, unfortunately just a bit too warm and the ice around the boards was a bit bad. We raised $700, not a huge sum, but I believe it was appreciated and everyone had a good time. I didn’t head out for beer with the boys after the tournament, likely a good choice. Looking back on things, this outdoor tournament is likely what got me sick.
What’s the plan for the next two weeks? Well, pretty much what I planned to do last week, except without the flu. Eat right, log my food, and hit the gym. Lying on the couch all week sounds fun, but it gets boring fast.
