So in the past four days, with my trusty Fitbit, I’ve walked from Kings Cross station to Milton Keynes which Strava works out at 13.6 + 19.1+ 17.3 + 22.1 = 72.1miles. Fitbit says I did it in 187,762 steps and burnt 22,168 cals based on my actual body weight. This excludes the fact I was lugging a 10kg backpack as well 🙁
So imagine my gloom when I stepped on the scales at home this morning to discover I’ve gained 1kg in weight over the past four days 🙁
Now apparently my favourite food is “only” 861 cals per portion and the essential Guinness adds another 210 cals which means I could have eaten 10 lots of fish & chips and still been on target. So where did all that extra weight appear from?
Maybe I will have to be like son Nick and take up fell running 🙂 to get the burn rate up!
