July, here I come!

Monday, June 30, 2014

June had it's ups and downs. It turned out to become a month centering around making adjustments. The biggest change of pace last month was discovering that hubby has Celiac disease. We are slowly coming to grips with it all, but we are still a bit lost in the woods..

I managed to stick to my plan for the most of June, despite some lapses. I did not find as much time to recharge as I would have liked. So busy-mommy was running the show, keeping playful-mommy parked on the bench most of the time. So my goal for July; Relax!

All in all by today 30th of June I ended up losing a tiny bit of weight, 0.2 kilos, since 31st of May. (The first weeks in June I gained several kilos to having to take steroids for allergies, so I'm just happy none of them decided to stick around!)

I can't wait to embrace July! It's a month were we usually get lots of family time, fresh air, hikes and walks in the parks. I'm hopeful that my allergies won't act up now that I've taken the steroid shot, leaving me the opportunity to really soak in the outdoors.

Summer is here!

June plan

Wednesday, June 04, 2014

Jeans are less snug, but I am not at my goal yet. Some of the strategies for last month did not really work out that great, I am not that good at tracking that consistently. Or nixing sweets completely. I've taken that on board, and plan to continue to lose weight despite this. So in June I will;

- Eat whole healthy foods.

- Move my body every day.

- Eat fresh fruits and vegetables in copious amounts.

- Eat sweets in moderation.

- Do something really nice for myself at least weekly.

- Do something really nice for my family at least weekly.

Happy June!

Another jog.. Phew!

Friday, May 30, 2014

Last autumn I started jogging. It was amazing! Yes, at first I felt incredibly unfit. I was huffing and puffing along lobster-red in the face.. I had to take short breaks on nearly every bend in the road, and I was not really convinced this jogging thing was for me.

Even though I did not have a flying start, I decided to stick with it. And I soon found that I was able to jog faster, and in longer intervals. And I felt OK (sometimes good even!) during my jogs.

I am fortunate to be working in a building really wonderfully located near the waterfront and public parks. This makes me want to jog home, just to get a chance to enjoy the beauty and silence. This week was another sunny week. Due to more-than-usual stress at work (and meetings I figured I could not attend wearing my running gear) I had not been jogging for 2 months. But I figured, hey, I finally have time and energy (sort of). Let's jog!

Ugh. I now have learned that jogging and seasonal allergies just don't mix well. Just a couple of minutes into my jog I was huffing and puffing even worse than I was last autumn during my first jog in ages. And I was going slower. Once I got home I showered and soon collapsed on the sofa and slept 14 hours. Straight. Then woke up with itchy eyes, stuffy nose and a horrible headache.

So no more jogging outside for now. Not until whatever is bothering me in the air has cleared. Until then I probably should find an alternative way to get my heart pumping, but right now I am at a loss as to what this could be. I'm not a fan of indoor exercise..

At least I did manage to take quite a few pictures during my many, many breaks;


This is what greets me on my jog home! Started with a spring in my step, feeling as fresh as the breeze.


This little beauty was almost outshining the sun!


My jog-nemesis, the evil (but oh so gorgeous!) pollenizers!


Taken during one my many breaks..


And by this point I was dragging my feet the rest of the way home..

    Bummer! Sorry to hear of your respiratory troubles. Sounds like a clear message to find something else to do for the time being, indeed. Lovely pics though!
