I've fallen off the wagon ~ well it feels like I have as I'm not tracking the whole day.
I start my day tracking but by the afternoon I'm no longer doing it...
I'm eating well as there is nothing in my house to snack on besides fruit and veg
As I'm an ALL or nothing person I feel as if I've fallen off the wagon, but know I haven't really, I'm just living with my new lifestyle and no longer dieting or being obsessed about my weight.
~ * ~ * ~
Its been a month now since I last weighed myself.
I decided to stop worrying about the number and just life the lifestyle I have embraced for the last two years...November it will be two years since I began this journey...and over time so much has changed with my eating habits as I've learned more about living a healthy lifestyle.
One of the best changed I made was to stop eating all diet products fill with Aspartame and other horrible poisons, and processed foods.
This morning I met two of my neighbors at 9am again for a walk/run session...we decided to only to a short * tour* as they call *route* of 5 km ( 3 miles ) and then come back to my house to do some toning.
I dressed up all snug this morning in my winter running gear, even had a head band on to keep my ears warm, gloves for my hands and a running jacket over my long top...it was 1 degree when we went out, FREEZING cold!!!
We walked up the first part of the route as its a very steep hill...and then once at the top we started to jog on the downhills and flats. I felt okay...didn't run at a fast pace ~ I noticed when I felt tired or found it hard to breath I would look at my HR monitor and see that my HR was still low, yet in my chest I was finding it hard, yet it was not effecting my HR???
I imagined the way I was puffing and panting while running that my HR would be sky high...NOT!
When we got back home they came to my house for a toning session.
I started with push ups...* They found them hard *
Then...lots of forward lunges...backward lunges, side lunges
Abdominals and then a nice deep long stretch.
Walked/Ran 5.2 km in 38 mins
Total workout 1 hr 11 mins
Burned 712 calories
HR 112 - 140
I bought the rolls in the photo's at the Health Shop yesterday.
Tastes very different to the rolls one buys from the bakery.
I prefer the Health shop rolls to be honest.
