I have decided that I cannot blog or track online on Sunday's I am just way too busy. So I will keep track on paper, continuing to weigh everything and make sure I do not go over or too far over my cal goals, then log on Monday's.
Sunday's are a great opportunity for a great walk though - 40 mins each way. I was not able to do it this Sunday because I was not ready in time but I did spend sometime doing light activity for about 2 hours packing up harvest goods at church for the elderly and single parents.
Whiteboard - next Saturday, plan for Sunday morning so I can get out of the house it time to walk and be at church on time.
Today was a great day for my goals. Did a Abs strength workout for the first time. There was only one of the excercises I struggled with and that is because it was mainly floor work which I do struggle a bit with. So it was excellent that I was able to keep up with all the reps except that one. That was this morning and I can still feel the stretch around my midriff. Went for a workout walk and worked up a sweat. I know my resting heartbeat is around 60 beats a minute and when I had just finished the walk it went up to 103 beats. Not sure entirely what that means yet but at least I got some figures to look at.
Food was good today, dead on target with everything except Iron. I am targeting that because I have had an Iron deficiency for some time. Haven'tried my lentils yet, going to look for some recipes apart from dahl. Hopefully that will help. I am going to my doctor this week to repeat my regular blood test because I am on medication to hopefully help my iron levels.
Well, that's about it. My thighs feel less bulky and my waist feel's smaller. It's nice that I notice some small visible changes, I am definately getting fitter as well - shaved a couple of minutes off my walk, less tired nowaday's as well.
Thank you so much Spark People you are helping me in bucket loads with information and encouragement, there is no way I would have the motivation or wherewithal to do what I am doing now on my own.
