Well, I successfully finished the January Fitness challenge. Unfortunately, my Personal Trainer has me on a scale ban, so I can't really weigh myself. I will admit, I snuck a weigh in yesterday and I'm at 215.1. So i think that's down? so IF i lost, I didn't lose much. But i'll officially weigh in next week when i see her again. I did have some off days but made up my workouts as appropriate. I went on a nice long walk today through town and the off pavement footpaths (through some mud) and i'm starting to boost up my elliptical trainer, for hill training, to get my legs ready for hiking in march!
I have been a lot better about my gluten free stuff the last couple of weeks. I do slip, but i'm getting better. I am also on Raw milk, which i'm quite excited about! It's very tasty and so far my stomach seems to be fine with it. I'm hoping it will help me feel better, but letting me get the wholesome nutrients it provides!! I'm trying very hard to space out my eating, in to smaller, frequent meals. I think part of my problem has been I have been eating rather large-ish meals 2-3 times a day. But i've only managed to do that today! I tried yesterday , but wasn't that successful! I'm getting there. I also joined the Eating Whole Foods group yesterday! So i'm hoping I can get more help and support there, so I can maintain my healthy eating habits, or at least improve them!
I did my muscle testing with the Naturopath. So he wants to put me on some greens mixture (like you put it in your water?) and a couple more vitamins/minerals stuff. One is for digestion and something else, and the other is detox on my liver. And start taking a zinc/copper mixture! This is in addition to my usual calcium, magnesium, etc etc! I was looking at this other stuff, called Tangy Tangerine, which also provides some very good minerals and nutrients. I was mostly pondering it because of testimonies that is can give you more energy with getting all the extra nutrients. For now, I am sending it to my dad to help him out! hopefully it will help him with energy levels and his health in general! Then maybe I'll get me some!
So my february goals will be something like this:
1. maintain good eating habits, reflecting my gluten-free and eating whole foods.
2. do my elliptical on the hill program, upping my level and resistance to build strength
3. Start walking outside more, lengthening out my legs more! Hopefully i can start running!
4. fit into my new hiking pants by the end of february!
Goals for my trip coming up!
1. attend my yoga classes at least 3 times!
2. maintain my gluten-free or bread-free eating as much as possible
3. HIKE HIKE HIKE!! hehe
