So I have to say that I have been doing some major evaluating the last few days. I know I have not been on the right track and while I have been trying to get myself back in the right mode, I have not really known how to get there and so have been trying a whole set of new things, most of which have not lasted more than a day.
The lastest thing I have stumbled across is BandedWendy on You Tube, I followed the link in Anthena's blog and discovered a whole new world of banded sisters. Now BandedWendy is at goal and is a runner and is straight talking! I love it! I guess I was in the right frame of mind to listen to what she said and it hit the right spot!
I have watched a bunch of videos, of her's and many others and while I still love my blog, I hope at I will be able to get up the nerve to also do a vlog soon.
But what inspiration have I gathered from this? Well, I just completed Week One, Day One of the c25k training program! I mean really did it, not a version of it, or 'program to get me ready to do it' I did the official version of the c25k program. 5 minute warm up walk, followed by 60 second jog and 90 second walk for 20 minutes.
And I followed Wendy's advise. I started slow! Walked at 4.5km (2.8miles) and jogged at 6.5km (4miles). So I was very slow, but I completed the whole session and had to stop myself from doing more. Although looking at the miles, I could have upped my speed a little bit more. I don't know miles in relation to kilometers and it can be a little confusing :p but hey, I can only go up from here.
One of the main points that I picked up from Wendy's videos is to increase your speed only by very small increments at a time and so that is what I am going to do.
I have also been looking at a lot of videos on food journals, it is amazing the difference a picture does make. I have been eating too much! I need to measure! And I need to take lunch to work! And I need to start working on this straight away. It's funny, I have been banded for nearly two years and I am suddenly having so much trouble in working out what I should be eating to loose weight. For so long I have been eating foods that go down easily with no effort. I have to completely retrain my brain!
One step at a time. Oh and the other good thing is that my exercise ticker is working :o) I am working towards that goal as well. And I am trying to stick to the no chocolate for February, I have had it a few times, but only a few.
Okay, I had better get back to work, typing this on my iPad inbetween calls. Fun times :o)
Have a great week-end everyone :o)
