Wont post every day but this is my personal journal. 21/3/2015
Just did dumbell greatness workout of 30 odd minutes... Feeling pumped. Eggs for brekky. Weighing 92.1kg at 183cm tall BMI of 27.5 with muscle of 41%... Whole day labouring on our property picking up firewood and then heap of work in our organic veggie patch.... Feeling good and feeling strong... No beer for about a week now. Not missing it... Looking forward to more health and strength... Loving being relatively fit in my 40s... Still a long way to go though

22/3/2015 According to my BMI I am overweight however my nody fat % at 21 has me just on the high side of normal... I am targetting a Weight of approx 85 to 86 kg with a body fat % below 18 BMI and muscle % of approx 43 to 44% will be in the normal range for my age and height and I think I will be pretty happy and def more fit if I can hit these goals. Timeframe to achieve is 6 to 12 months

Hey bro, I wouldn't put too much stock in your BMI number, it isn't a very good measure of health in my opinion.  I'd worry more about body fat and muscle %.

Yeah I only use BMI as an indicator... I carry a bit of muscle so not necessarily a good indicator for me... For example I could be compared to another guy of same age height and weight who has absolutely no muscle tone and comparitively I would be doing ok... Cheers for the advice though
