I'm feeling a little zany these days I gotta admit.. it's seems I've got a case of insomnia creeping up on me. I've been up all night tonight after only getting a few hours of precious shut-eye last night. I made use of this time and went for a run at 5am - well no that's not exactly correct, I went for a jog. I did a little 60 second sprint once but the rest of the meager 25 minutes I was out, I was jogging or power walking. I can't believe how unfit I am - I have zero cardiovascular fitness at all. Zero. But - this gives me something to improve. And that can only be a good thing.
I have a busy day ahead, my partner is off work so we are taking the day to clear the house of old stuff we don't use, clutter, etc. and give it a good scrubbing. I love organising, I always feel so good afterwards, so that'll be good. And I'm going to write to my nan who I haven't spoken to in far too long if I'm honest, and give my sister a call too. I'm also going to design a flyer as I'm trying to go self-employed, atleast part time, and I need to get these out there. Best of all, I get to start online browsing for a dress for graduation! This will make my entire day haha.
I'm also trying a new diet strategy - little and often. I'm going to become a little grazer. I've filled out my food SP tracker to see just what I can fit into my intake allowance in terms of small snacks and light meals, so I'm eating at six sittings - every 3 hours or so hopefully.
I must say it feels flippin' fantastic to have my exercise out of the way already - although it wasn't much my body is aching all over so I'm hoping despite the shortness, the intensity level for my personal fitness will still have effect. I may do some more exercise later on in the day if I feel particularly motivated, and I definately plan to go for a run again tomorrow morning. Running when the town is so quiet feels amazing, I don't quite know why, but it really was fantastic - except for the difficulty breathing, aching throat from inhaling air too hard, tired muscles and swear that is... hahah, but hey, it can only get better.. I can only get fitter :) One day I will look back on this period of my lifestyle change and think "wow, I can't believe how hard it used to be". I'm just happy to keep moving, no matter how slow I am or how silly I look in the process! When I'm slipping into those size 10 jeans again it'll be SO worth it
