This is how spend our Saturday nights: fire in the fireplace, burn some candles and watch some TV or read. As we both have busy jobs for us spending a quiet Saturday night at home is what we love the most.
My first WW Propoints week is finished. As you can see I had 5 days where I used more than my daily 29 points. I used up a lot of points during the weekend so there is a big improvement to achieve. I had 1 free point left by Sunday night. I like the new program, I enter my daily intake at night because I don’t want to think about food all day. I can evaluate afterwards where I could have made better choices.
I’m having a doctor’s appointment tomorrow afternoon and I’m nervous about it. For birth control I have a IUCD (Mirena) placed. I have had it for 5 years and now it has to be replaced by a new one.
Only 5 years ago putting it in was a nightmare. Because I was frightened by a prick while the speculum was still in me, I closed my legs in a reflex which damaged my inside. I’ve had stomach pain for a few weeks after that. And I passed out afterwards, I think because of the tension before.
So you could probably imagine I’m not looking forward to this tomorrow.
The fact that I only had my period for about 4 times in the past 5 years and my hormones aren’t bothering my anymore is the reason I’m going through this again. Wish me luck!
Yesterday morning my bed was so warm and I didn’t want to go out for a run. First I surfed to Syl of Live, smile, run. She ran a 5K Saturday in the snow and at a very low temperature. You should visit her blog, this woman is amazing! How many of you would go out in that kind of weather and run? I know I wouldn’t.
Anyway: after reading Syl’s story I decided to go running because we hadn’t had snow or a low temperature so no excuses: just go! And it was a good run. I ran 7K/4.3 miles. Weather was dry but again a lot of wind. This seems to become the story of my running life: wind J
Today I went to the gym after work, I had a cardio workout to do from my Matt Roberts plan. I finished level 1 today and will continue with level 2 which exists of 12 workouts (just like level 1).
What’s for dinner:
Yesterday vegetable soup with bread. I often make soup on Sunday’s because I don’t feel much like cooking then.
Today sauerkraut with mashed potatoes and sausage.
The Ultimate Diet Log:
Fitness Factoid: Setting your daily exercise goal in terms of steps, rather than miles or minutes, can help with motivation. In one study, woman instructed to take 10,000 steps per day averaged 10,159 steps, whereas those told to take a 30-minute walk accumulated 8,270 steps.
Quote: “The biggest seller is cookbooks and the second is diet books – how not to eat what you’ve just learned how to cook” – Andy Rooney.
Had a good day at work and a great workout.
Everyone who has run knows that its most important value is in removing tension and allowing a release from whatever other cares the day may bring.
