Total Calories = 1649

Total Fat grams = 49.5

One gram of fat = 9 calories

@9 calories per fat gram my total intake of calories of fat = 49.5 g. x 9 calories per fat gram = 445.5

Divide fat calories by total calories: 445.5 divided by 1649 = .27 or 27% fat calorie to total calorie ratio.

I’m a little above 25% and well below 35%.


Okay, it was my first day and I didn’t want to shock my body by making my brain think I was in distress by deviating too much from my normal routine. Nice try huh? That bag of chips went like I travel, fast.

I can tell I’m not going to like all this recording of everything I do, then calculating it. It takes a lot of time. I almost had another beer. I opened the can, then realized I was sleepy and frankly didn’t want to put in the report that I had another – for the optics of it – but more so that I didn’t want to write it down, so I dumped it down the sink.

That’s no reflection on ICEHOUSE beer. I just thought that I often eat or drink something just to finish it or because it’s there. So, that was a good move – saved me some calories. I’m not counting carbs; it’s too complicated now. I sense that I need to lower them, which I will as I continue the design here.


I walked 3.2 miles outside.

I did my 4 way lifeline stretch, bouncing mildly at each juncture of resistance. Ouch.

Equilibrium is a big thing for me since my fall and resultant concussion. After all this time it still isn’t better – okay somewhat better, not like it was right after, but still not good if I have to be cognizant of it every time I move.

So, using the exercise band, me standing upright, tie the band around the closet rod, face adjacent to the closet, with hand/arm lift and pull band at shoulder level and draw in front of chest, repeat till fatigued, while standing alternately on 1 foot. Not easy, which tells me every time I do it, that I need to keep doing it. Reverse position and do the same with other hand/arm, alternately on 1 foot.
