Draglist's Journal, 30 Nov 14

Last day of the month. Got a 216.8 weigh in after 65 minutes of HIIT treadmill after a 20 hour fast. Did not drink enough water today. Need to set an alarm on my computer to remind me. Last week of Thanksgiving eating (stretched out for several days) proved that I can't kill myself for three weeks of the month to get a 1000 calorie per day deficit and then eat a week of the month at double or triple RDI (or more) and expect to stay on track. Ending up with a 2225 per day calorie intake against a 1700 per day goal. Got to do better in December. Still, ending up with a 481 per day deficit. Should be worth almost one pound a week, long term. Will target the same daily calorie intake in December, but when I overindulge, I plan to limit myself to 600 calories the following day in an attempt to get back on track quickly. The experiment goes on...

There are phone apps that will remind you to drink fluids with push notifications.

Thanks, Chris. Yes, I depend on that at work but don't carry my phone at home.

I found this way to set an alarm within Windows on a computer. Good article on getting up and moving every hour... http://blogedutech.blogspot.com/2011/04/simple-hourly-reminder-to-get-up-and.html

One of the features of the Garmin VivoFit is a red bar for inactivity that you literally have to walk off - and not just a few steps. Next step would be a hydration reminder.

That's cool... Fitbit has a setting where you need to log in every drink... that's a pain and I ignore it.

You can log water in My Fitness Pal, but I use a tablet app that pushes a notification telling me how much more I have to drink.
