If you look up Mrs Smith's apple pie on mfp, a whole pie has 2720 calories, so 1/5 of it would be 544 calories, which is about 75% of 730. So, it's not that much of a stretch.

Still looking iffy about this afternoon's paddle. the organizer said rain or shine but lightning will cancel it (of course).

Watch says 8103 steps but most were paddle strokes. I paddled 4.7 miles and 4.2 of it was non stop at about 3.5 mph, which is paddling hard on a 9'9" inflatable SUP; it's really geared more toward surfing and light recreational paddling than trying to cover distance. It plows through the water and doesn't track well. I paddled about 100 minutes and logged 45. 221 calories is low; probably over 500.

1836 calories. Not the best nutrition; no veggies. I will take salad and a piece of chicken for lunch tomorrow and cook some veggies with dinner tomorrow night.

I will weigh in the morning.

I walked 9,848 steps. I walked 3 3/4 miles burning 389 calories. This together with the MFP value for walking during my daily activities came out to a target of 2736 calories. I consumed 2756 calories meeting my target. My average speed was 3.7 mph, with a maximum heart rate of 160. My average heart rate was low at 138. So I ended up with a moderate cardio workout.

158.6 this morning. I ended up having another piece of fruit last night and logged it for yesterday as being over a little more since I was pretty sure I under reported exercise.

My weight is now 179. Interesting. I do not want to go over 180. Letís see if I can halt this continued weight gain through exercising every day. I will have to watch my consumption of trail mix. Even though it can be calories rice expensive, it is addicting

I was at 164 earlier this week. Now Iím at 158. Only 8 more pounds until I reach my goal weight.

Iíve taken zero Ativan, melatonin and I cut back on one of meds, and Iíve had no issues with sticking to my 1,280 calories.

11550 steps. Logged less than half and still have 167 calories from it that I didn't (and won't) eat.

1763 calories but there are a couple of estimates in there that might be off - not all of the watermelon and raisins were weighed. I doubt I am far enough off to make much difference. BTW, I got the first really good watermelon of the season today.

MFP calories 1,230. Apple Watch steps 7,886. Water intake 50.7oz

Me and my youngest daughter enjoyed our birthday today. I bought her a Fitbit Charge 2 as her present. We did a lot of walking today.

Red face Re: Weight Loss and exercise

I am sticking to my plan in eating the target calories provided by MFP. I have taken 11,098 steps. I walked 4.24 miles for exersize. As a consequence, I have burned 471 calories. My average speed and heart rate is not notable. For some reason, I did not perform well today even though I tried. I did manage to get my heart rate up to 158, which is not my goal of above 160. I had to run for a brief period to accomplish this. I am going to have to go back to that hill in order to get good stats. So my target calories turned out to be 2659. I consumed 2,486 calories. So I am 173 calories short. I will eat additinal trail mix to make up the difference before going to bed.

PS On many walks, I try to knock myself out. My fitness score from my watch remained at 28 which is very poor. They use VO2Max which can be reasonably accurate. How depressing. Now for the first time it has moved up to 30! So I am becoming more fit, which I have known for some time now, and the watch is now willing to admit it. I do not know if this is from those walks up that hill, or running for a brief amount of time once for some recent walks. I think it is the hill.

@Tucon - I think the consistency of exercise is the biggest factor.

I am having trouble with my watch and its app with my new phone, which runs a later version of Android than my old phone. It worked for a while, but I have not been able to sync in several days. So I am just trying to make sure I get into the high thousands pretty much every day I can and over 10000 often. So I track my food pretty close (though I do estimate sometimes) and then I use voodoo to figure out the exercise calories. Somehow that is working.
