Today is my 30th day on Syl's 30 day challenge, I started a few days earlier than the official start of the challenge.
I have only missed ONE day of training...last weekend when we had two birthday parties ~ the one was 4 hours away and the other back home...
I'm very happy that I've been able to keep to the goal I set out for myself...to train everyday for at least 25 mins...and everyday I trained an hour or more.
I have been doing my group online challenge for 5 weeks and am going to continue with adding other toning elements daily ~ I have started adding new elements daily to this program.
I am loving how much stronger my upper body and abs have become. This motivates me to continue.
I must add I have also been Treat Free since the start of September.
Over the 30 days with doing this challenge and with being Treat Free I've gained weight....
This is not going to make me run and put my thinking cap on as to what I can do next...
I know I am doing everything that I should. I am eating well and training daily...there is nothing more I can do...or am going to do. I'm going to continue just the way I am and keep off the scale.
I will take my measurements and see how my clothing fits ~ and right now my clothes fit the same as when I was 5kg's ( 10 lbs ) less when I bought them.
I want to get to the stage where I no longer count points or calories
I want to eat clean, not only for a healthier slimmer me, but for a healthy me
Eating clean can only but benefit me with being diagnosed with MS.
I have to share something I tried and loved...its like a sweet dessert after dinner
Cut a Banana in half....spread a little peanut butter on both sides, then sprinkle crushed Flaxseed on the peanut butter...cut into small mouthful sizes and enjoy....Today I ran 10 km with the ladies in my area...( 6.2miles )
It was only 7 degrees when we headed out, my poor hands froze, but 4 km into the run I pulled off my top and ran in short sleeves as I was HOT....I cant run with I am feeling hot...I feel so much better when I feel the cooler air on my skin cooling me down.
I felt tired today as I had run lots this week...in total this week I ran 34km ( 21 miles ) and then all the other toning and teaching I've done with heavy leg workouts as legs burn the most calories when you work them out.
We did 10 km ( 6.2 miles ) in 1.15 mins. ~ 5 mins shorter to the last time we ran as a group.
I burned an amazing 925 calories...am I overjoyed with that!!
HR 112 - 145
Before my run this morning I did 30 mins of toning ...
200 sit ups
Push ups ( a few less today as I didn't feel very strong )
Triceps and biceps...with shoulders.
This week my training looks as follows.
Did 8 workouts
Burned 4237 calories
Did 34km ( 21 miles )
2x Personal training sessions
1x Aerobic class
5,5km Walking with camera ( 3.4miles )
28km running. ( 17.3 miles )
I do not wear my HR monitor when i do my toning for the Group Challenge...so not counted in.
I am going to continue training as I have been from now till I leave for Cape Town on the 25th October.
The only changes I am going to make is I am going to take one day off a week for rest day.
Tomorrow morning I'm going for a MRI to see if there are any new lesions on my brain...I will decided from the results what my next steps are going to be. Treatment before or after my trip to Cape Town is what I have to decided once I know the results.
