Good morning 🙂
I thought it was about time for an update post to let you know some things that are not directly related to daily exercise.
The first of which is a bit of a milestone for me, it is a welcome side-effect of this project but not the main goal. I have lost 1 stone in weight since I started this. (translates to 14 lbs or 7 kg) this is not a great deal in the grand scheme of weight losses but it is a start. I am also aware that the number on the scale is not the only (or the best) way to judge success, but I thought I would share anyway!
It is also prove that to change yourself, your weight and your fitness you do not need to go on “a diet” I am not following any formal plan, I am not cutting back to a stupidly low calorific intake, I am not cutting out carbs or eating only green food or any such fad.
What I am doing is tracking what I eat, for increased awareness of portion control, attempting to eat real non processed food and remove as much sugar as possible. On saying that, I still have a Cadbury’s chocolate dessert most evenings because they are nice. I am generally keeping an eye on what I eat, and attempting to make healthy choices. I am following a healthy balanced diet, with attention to what my body needs to rebuild and repair its self and I am taking notice of whether I am full or not. This is really becoming more of a lifestyle change than I anticipated at the start of the project 🙂
I am also doing somewhere between 1/2 an hour and 2 hours (or 5 on a dance out day) of real hard exercise every day and it is working.
The other really awesome thing that made me smile, is that over the weekend the amazing Nancy from My Year of Sweat Nominate me for some lovely and unexpected blog awards which I will be displaying just as soon as I work out what to do to fulfil the criteria 😀 😀 In the mean time, go and read Nancy’s blog, she is inspiring 🙂 do it now..click on the link up there!
An other thing that makes me smile is this:
That is all for now 😀
