First of all the heat. Our heat index can go all the way up to 125 this Summer. It just started Summer and it's already slated to be 117 this Sunday.
Anyway it's messing with my work out. My legs felt heavy (maybe because I switched my canvas shoes with Athletic ones) I did have an insert in the canvas, and didn't get blisters. When I first started out with exercise I wore the athletic shoes and got blisters, I also lost
weight this past 3 months, so trying the athletics again, but they felt like weights on my feets!
I was barely making it through, but I managed. So will start getting used to them now. I need
more support than what inserts were able to give me, with my canvas, and there was no
support on sides. I am going to start the 5 mile walk with Leslie, way more intense. But need
to get my gloves, so I may start. It will probably be ok to go another week with the 3 miles.
Now my "NUTRITION" guidelines. I never had trouble with fats before? Now all of a sudden
increased calories and I still manage to go over in fats. I try to work with it, but I have to cut
avocados out almost completely. I don't think 1/2 of an avocado does the trick when your eating a large salad. And walnuts? How come these little nutmeats are so fatty? Seems like even cashews are not as fatty as the wal's. I can only have max fat 60 according
to my nutrition guidelines, what's up with that?? All of a sudden I have problems? Well I adjust and work with it, but it's becoming hard to do.
I wanted to not eat eggs, but since I cut back on meat. I need to get protein somewhere. I can only have 3 eggs a week, I already managed to eat 4. Aaaargh.
I know, I would probably do much better, if I increased my calories I actually have more trouble getting in the calories with the fats problem, but I cannot increase the fat.
Kind of wondering how this 3 months will fare, with all these problems. Anyway I will trudge along.
