So how has the first 7 days of 2019 gone so far.
I never start a diet on the first day. It never works.
There’s just too much Christmas crap still around to get rid of, so I concentrated on my exercise level for the first six days and actually started my diet yesterday.
So far, so good.
This past week I have walked 47.44 Kilometres which is already 35 Kilometres better than the same period last year.
Today I will be upping the game by adding some resistance and weight work and doing exercises for my knees.
I’ve tried weight loss classes in the past and always failed.
The only time I have successfully lost weight is when I’ve done it myself and I always do it by calorie counting and exercise. It does make you really look at the healthier options as you can actually have more of them and feel fuller!
So today I am preparing a dinner for me and my husband that consists of 1 large sea bass fillet each and a side of honey roasted veggies.
I’ve weighed out and calculated the calories in a large tray of potatoes carrots and red onions then rounded up the calories to account for the honey drizzle and olive oil and the whole lot works out at approx 550 calories each for our main meal of the day.
That’s only if we eat it all. There’s so much veg, I may not manage all of it.
One issue that I’ve been quite aware of for a while now, is the fact that I don’t drink enough fluid throughout the day, particularly when I’m working!
Yesterday I had my Milky coffee breakfast and at work I only managed one 500ml bottle of water and an ordinary cup of coffee before coming home to a 500ml bottle of water that I finished throughout the night.
My sleep pattern is shot to pieces at the moment.
It would appear that I am in perimenopause – just to rub that little nugget into my mid-life crisis.
Hot flashes are worse at night. One minute I’m freezing, then I’m too hot and I’m just not getting much more than 3 or 4 hours of unbroken sleep.
It’s not helping the health aspect of my life at the moment.
Think I may be making a visit to the GP.
Anyway, time to go do a little exercise before heading into town for my contact lens check up and then I have to do some writing.
