    Exercised?: Yes. Walked 5 Km in 36 mins (hills).
    Calories?: Yes.
    Tracked?: Yes.

    Early walk today, first time under 36 mins for the 5 km (35m45s). Needed to get out early to go into the city.

    One of the appointments in the city was a body test (fitness club marketing within a city corporate office). Measured lots of parameters. BF% came in at 11.3% (lowest reading they had of anyone that day - and lowest ideal sustainable). Visceral fat level (organ fat) was one of the lowest the testers had seen (which is excellent). I was also well balanced in upper/lower and core development. Lean muscle mass about the only measurement above normal range.

    Comparing results with a former manager (who has a reasonably thin build and cycles 40+ km 3 times a week). I had not seen him in over 3 years and he had always been reasonable fit and thin. I came in better on most scores (much to his surprise).

    Hard to sell try gym membership to someone who does not seem to need it :) . Proves you don't need a gym to get you in shape :) (do not lift weights, and have not set foot in a gym in many years).

    @RangerRickL. This is one of my goals for the month. Forgive my own mistakes. I am great at forgiving others, but a classic INTJ is not good at forgiving themselves.
    @trixsey1. Thank you for the beautiful pictures of Sherwood.

    @craigo3154 Congratulations on your awesome numbers!!! Job well done. The good news is that you are continuing to practice your new lifestyle /healthy habits even though you have reached your goal weight( and of course that's the difference between diet and lifestyle).

    @Dosse1320. @am_change. Thank you. I am very happy with the numbers. As mentioned continuing the lifestyle is the key. I took the attitude that "this is a journey, not a destination". This seems to be a different mindset what I have seen from a traditional "dieter".

    Did I exercise for at least 20 minutes? Yes, 60 minute trail run/walk. Slowly making progress, up to 40 minutes continuous running. Could probably go farther, but faithfully following my coach's training schedule for me. I haven't ran this long/far for at least 25 years. lol
    Did I stay within my calorie budget for the day? Yep, easily
    Did I keep track of everything I ate and drank? Yep

    Thanks, am_change Years ago, one of my mentors taught me that the road to success was Practice, Fail; Practice, Fail; etc. He said, "Everyone wants to succeed, but few are willing to pay the price of being wrong."

    I got out of work half hour early as I wanted to see the second half of the WC qualifier against Trinidad & Tobago. Shouldn’t have bothered as it was 2-0 before I walked out the door and the end result was a pitiful 2-1 eliminating the US. Unbelievable :s
