February's Star Calendar

It's time to get my positive energy back. I'll be needing it in the days to come. So, it's time to publish this month's Star Calendar. That's a bit of good news.

At the end of last month I set out my task. I've set myself the challenge of keeping to 1600 calories a day and doing an hour of exercise a day. I get a star if I stick to plus or minus the calories and make sure the exercise is done six days a week.

Well here is this month's star calendar:

February's toll. 26.5 stars out of 28.

Other small factoids.

I'm back in the 80s and I haven't even gone to Adelaide! So far I've lost about 8.5 kgs this year. This morning's weight - 89.8 kgs - soooooo much better than 98.4 as it was on New Year's Day.

I'm fitter. My squat track weight in Pump is up to 17.5 kgs. 12.5 for the chest track, 15 kgs for the back track and I'm starting to do weight lunges again. Pinochet had me dead lifting 45 kgs the other night.

My knee is resolving too. I've started to run again.

It's working, that's all I'll say.

The world, despite its problems, is looking up in places.

Well done! Great news on the knee too. I think you should have an extra star for the knee.
I've lost nothing since the initial 5kg. It's my own fault, I've been lazy because of the heat. I just can't motivate myself when it's too hot.

That's fantastic, Pandora. Keep at it, one day at a time and slowly slowly.

To me these are life's greatest achievements, the ones that others cannot recognise unless they know something of the struggle to shed the unwanted and to rid ourselves of addictions.

Truly wonderful. Thank you for sharing. And I'm with River - the knee deserves a star too.
