Just like you, but different
A bit of fun in February and by my own personally competitive nature I managed to crack a 100kms of exercise in the 4 week period, says my Nike+ SportsWatch GPS
My weight hasn’t exactly plummeted, but from being 105Kg in November I’m back to 97kg, and having been on or at 100Kg for years and a while I’m inwardly smiling about gaining the extra notch on my belt back.
My goal is to lose about 1kg a month, by a combination of better eating, for instance the breakfast porridge, a lighter lunch and better dinners, and having cut out snack things like crisps/chips and chocolate (for the most part), and to be much healthier and thinner by next summer. And I’ve invested in a bit of gear so I have a motivation.
I’m also drinking less beer less often too, but I’m enjoying it more, and instead of the whole cheese I can now enjoy it 1/3 at a time over three days.
I’ve all but worn out my current Nike shoes (around 250kms) and will move on the new ones I brought this weekend. MrsPdubyah says I should slow down and go further, I’m going to seek advice on what’s the best way forward. I don’t think I can walk any faster without getting into the whole speed walking gait and thing, and I probably look just a bit odd now, although I do manage to break into a run for a few hundred meters (he says kidding himself), which is more than I could in December. I think I’d be aiming for more jogging intervals than just walking fast. That would be plan A.
Stretching has helped, the massage stick has helped, I still have stiffness in the calf area, and now around the knees, although the latter might be the result of the worn out shoes. Touching your toes is quite the joy 🙂
So far then Pdubyah world all is going to plan.
