Weight and Stuff Report – 7 January 2013

Weight: 219.4 pounds (15 stone 9.4 pounds, 99.5 kg)
Steps taken: 3,988
Exercise: Short walk

Ooooh, back down today, how exciting![1] I didn’t manage to persuade myself to walk to work this morning – I was feeling slightly rough (nothing serious, bit of a cold or some such) and the enthusiasm was lacking. But I did go for a short walk at lunchtime, which I logged with Runkeeper. The idea is that Runkeeper talks to the iPhone app that talks to the Withings scale, so I can have lots of data in one convenient place.

But as showing Runkeeper data here is a lot more fiddly than showing Garmin data, I’ll probably go for logging in Garmin Fit, and allowing that to automagically copy to Runkeeper, which in theory will automagically log it with the Withings thing.

Anyway, here’s today’s walk, which shows moderately accurate GPS:

Today’s other fun was the arrival of the Holga DSLR Wheel of Filters that I mentioned recently. It was slightly delayed because I had to pay VAT (and the Royal Mail handling charge on top of that) before it could be delivered, mutter. Anyway, I’ve given it a quick try, and here’s a sample:

More playing and some kind of review may follow. The regular reader known only to himself as “Phredd” might be interested to know that the manual suggests that Holga do make a Pentax fit version. They even do one for the Pentax Q, it seems…
