After two days of rest I joined the group of ladies who run on a Sunday morning
It was 5 degrees out, very cold, so had my headband, gloves and jacket on to keep me warm
The only problem I find is that within the first 10 mins or so I start getting hot and have to start peeling off the layers...then the nose...oh heavens ~ the nose I have to keep blowing!!
Today I took my iPod along as I find the music gives me motivation to push when I feel like giving up....I usually only switch the iPod on after about 15 mins as the first few mins everyone is catching up with each others news...and even though most of it is in German, I have a few things I too want to say to them...and in English!! :)
Yesterdays blog entry I showed a photo of Quark that I put on my bread or my foods ~ the photo above is my pudding Quark...I will divide this 200g tub for two desserts....so have 100g after dinner time as my dessert, but not every night like I used to... and I used to eat a whole tub in one sitting...making all my portions smaller and eating 6x a day. What I also do is put some flaxseeds crushed into my Quark.
After doing Weight Watchers for the last two years I have finally freed myself from counting points ~ I actually cant believe that I have done this...if you had asked me a few months ago if I would ever stop counting Points, I would have said NO!!
Counting Points is what got me to lose my weight...I believe in Weight Watchers.
So what changed this for me...
PRODUCTS FILLED WITH ASPARTAME
As so many of Weight Watchers products have that poison in them...
And their recommendation to drink diet soda's cause it Points free
and a few other things like their foods which are all processed.
When I found Tosco's Clean Eating plan I knew with the knowledge I had gained from the two years on Weight Watchers and her plan I could be successful...
So now no more counting the Points ( or calories, I did try that as well )
Instead I eat Clean...6 small meals a day ~ Protein with each meal
I have introduced Flaxseed to my diet, nuts, fruit and more veggies
I try remember to drink one cup of Green tea a day
I try remember to drink my 8/9 glasses of water a day.
I train 6 x a week ( unless ill )
I am still far from perfect
But right now with the desire to keep my weight down and healing my body from MS through good nutrition and vitamin's ~ I have made huge changes to my lifestyle.
Today I ran 10km...the first 4.5 km we walked the steep hills then ran the flats and smaller hills, after that we ran all the way to the end...HOME
Did it in 1:08 mins, I was happy with that time considering the walking we did at first
Burned 1013 calories ~ always a bonus the calories burned
25% fat ( as my HR was too high due to not feeling well )
HR 135 - 153
My weeks workout
Ran 28 km
Burned 3495 calories
Did 5 workouts
2 Rest days
Taught 1 aerobic class
Considering I was not feeling too good this week I am happy with my weekly results.
