Health week 47:

Weight result November 19th:. : gained 0.4 kg/0.8 lbs.

Pink (my favourite colour) day = good day. I only eat healthy food and exercised.
Purple day = okay day. I did eat healthy but didn’t exercise or I didn’t eat completely healthy but did exercise.
Orange day = I’m in trouble. I didn’t eat healthy and I didn’t exercise.
Goal 3 (work-out 5 times a week):
Monday: Matt Roberts weight loss plan, week 3, training 3
Wednesday: 30 Day Shred, level 1, day 8
Saturday: 4K Run
Sunday: 30 Day Shred, level 1, day 9
Goals week 47:
1) Don’t have a dessert at the 2 dinners out I have this week. -> no, did have dessert at both dinners.
2) Eat only 1 piece of pie at R.’s birthday. -> no, ate 2 pieces
3) Workout 5 times -> 4 times
Not such a good week: only 2 pink weeks and didn’t hit one of my goals! Here’s a chance to do better this week.
Thanks for all the comments on especially the sleeping part in my last post. I have to say that I don’t have any sleeping problems. As soon as I’m in my bed I fall asleep. The point was that I went to bed too late. I’ve been watching this over the weekend and am not tired anymore. So I’ll try to get my 7 hours of sleep every night from now on.
Saturday night I had a nice dinner with R. I did eat to much but as he’s having a birthday once a year I could live with that.
So yesterday was R’s birthday. Our birthday’s have exactly 6 months in between which means mine is on May 22nd. 6 months in which I will focus on getting a lot of the goals I write down every week in my weight challenge. Since I’ve started blogging I did well on the weight loss and work outs but the past few weeks I felt it slipping through my fingers and I need to refocus on my goals and work towards them. I won’t let the holiday season, or being busy at work, or being tired stand in my way anymore. I’m going to work to reach my goals and hope that you will be here to support me, motivate me or give me a kick at the but if needed. 6 months!
Birthday cake of which I had 2 pieces!
We went to a concert last night of a Dutch artist called Ilse de Lange (see you tube links). R. is more a fan of her than I am so every once and then we go to a concert of her. I have to see that yesterday’s concert was very good.
Saturday I went out for a run and at the first steps I felt this wasn’t going to be my run, I was tired. So I decided to try and see how far I would come, after all the weather was great to run outside.
I made it to 4K (2.5 miles) but had to walk 4 times in between. After entering my time online it seemed I had run 8.2 per K which is fast for me.
It feels like I’m losing it, that I can’t run any further than approx 6K even though I did 10K only 2 months ago. So while running I decided to watch carefully what I eat so I’ll lose more weight and feel better and get enough sleep. I’m not giving up: I will run a 10K again and faster than the last one!
Sunday morning I got up on time and did day 9 of level 1 of the Shred. This way I had my workout of the day before our family came for R’s birthday.
Today I went to the gym straight from work and did the Matt Roberts weight loss plan, week 4, training 1. 30 minutes of cardio followed by strength training and crunches. I feel good now.
What’s for dinner:
Saturday night we went out for dinner. For starters I had a Greek salad.
Main course was veal with pesto cream sauce.
For dessert I had tiramisu. It was good but I have to say mine is better J
Yesterday tomato soup with bread and tonight kale and saucage.
Itunes shuffle playing right now:
Ilse de Lange – Puzzle me
Went to the gym and had a great workout.
You have to decide what your highest priorities are and have the courage – pleasantly, smilingly, nonapologetically – to say ‘no’ to other things. And the way to do that is by having a bigger ‘yes’ burning inside. The enemy of the ‘best’ is often the ‘good.’
