My habits keep me, when I'm in need

Sunday, July 03, 2011

Today was a very hard day.

Many things were happening.

I had no energy to focus on my nutrition, on my exercise, on drinking, or all the things I need for this healthy life.

I see my healthy habits are good friends, who take care of me.
So, I just switched to confluence mode, and went along with my habits.

When I needed to weigh myself in the morning, my scale was there, I just had to step on it, and mark the values in the tracker.
The fridge was full of strawberries, cherries, and melon, and my fruit corner with apples and peach. When I reached for something to eat from the fridge, the strawberries were there.
My freezer had ice cream snacks that are good in portion and calorie. When I needed them, they were there, and they were good for me, I could eat several pieces.
I had no energy to cook for lunch, and the pre-stocked food was just right in calories for lunch.
To track my food, my paper book was on the kitchen table with a pen, and my browser was open with the nutrition tracker. I just had to put in what I've eaten.
When it was time for exercise, I didn't have to think what to do and where to go. I just put on my gear, got out, and did it.

So, today, it was not really me doing the healthy lifestyle for me.
My habits were there, and they did all the necessary things for tracking, for food, for exercise.

Near Gleisdorf, my exercise time.

I just go. There are no limits.

Saturday, July 02, 2011

(Saturday, July 3rd, 2011)

Today, I ran 17K.
Longest so far, 430m uphill, and 375m downhill, 7min/km on average.
I measured myself before and after, and I was 1.4 kg (3.1 pounds) less afterwards. Before you get happy, this is water loss and used up glycogen storage from my liver and muscles.
I was feeling my legs are at their current limit.
I was wondering, if with this body geometry that I have, is it possible to run a marathon. Maybe yes, maybe no.
But otherwise, I am clearly in a new territory.
This is a wonderful new land to me.
This is where my spirit has more power then my body can do.
I am reaching my physical boundaries.
Because, until now, it was about my spirit, my motivation, to get myself going, and my exercise ended, when my spirit gave in.
Now, my spirit could do much more then my body can. So, I have to take care of my body, watch it, listen to it, cater it, pay attention to stretching, get sports creams, buy excellent shoes.
This is a wonderful feeling.
And running in the land feels so free. Going uphill, downhill, watching the mountains, the trees, the yards, the houses, people repairing their cars, families on bicycles, animals a I rarely saw before.
I just go, there are no limits.

    wow! that is amazing! It's so wonderful that you have turned running into a JOY instead of exercise you have to do. So happy that you are loving it and getting the most from it. How about a half marathon first and then a marathon?

Pic of my shopping cart

Friday, July 01, 2011

I like to shop on Friday night, it's silent, low traffic, good deals, and I start the weekend "ready".

Since I work at this fruit processing company, and I see tons of strawberry every day, strangely, I get more and more into strawberry. Today, I bought 5 packs of 500g, and have eaten a pack right away when arrived home.

Then I have cherries, apricot, some pineapple, melons, salad, low fat ham, low fat yoghurts, salad balsamic dressings.
And some slim ice cream, strangely only 35 kcal per piece, and very nice taste.
A little box of high calorie Italian almond bread snack, but small portions, and only one box.

43 Euro (62 USD)

Instead of bread, I eat puffed rice for very long.
I remember, how big excitement was to buy healthy when I started the spring challenge.
Today, this is just an average weekly shopping basket for me.
Life is so funny, I change so much lately.

    Great looking shopping cart! I wish we could all shop that way--I have too many junk food eaters living in my house to be able to make my cart look completely like that, but I try to do my best. You are doing so well--I am very inspired by you! Keep on sparking!

01:00 am. The perfect time for exercise.

Thursday, June 30, 2011

I had a short night yesterday in small inn with paper walls.
Today, a long day with lab trials, concentration non-stop.
Then a 3.5h drive back home.
I just got to my appartment.
I'm tired.
I have no energy.
I'm sleepy.
It's cold outside.
It's 01:00 am.
Looks like the perfect time for my daily 10 minute exercise.
Let's do it.
