So to follow-up from my last post… I have done 2 more walks since, one that almost killed me, and one that didn’t ha ha
Monday last week, 4th of April 2016 Mum convinced me to walk to the lake, around it, and back home again… My Heart Rate literally spiked to over 155 bpm! i had to stop every few minutes and I felt pain in every inch of my body. but aside from all that I was so proud to have pushed through it and just did it. It took me about 3 days to recover in which i haven’t been making the best food choices. ALOT better, but still not great. Then thursday came and I caved in to having a McDonald’s Breakfast.. Naughty I KNOW! the guilt got to me too and i went for a walk to make myself feel better So Mum and I went for a 30 minute walk around the lake, this time we drove there due to my fitness levels being so low i couldn’t handle it the last time. The lake walk is gorgeous so It’s a great incentive to get out and get some exercise, It’s just under 3 kms and takes me about 30 mins to walk around.
With my Diet still not great, the weekend did not consist of any extra exercise, to be fair though, it was pouring rain the entire weekend. Still No takeout, and have been eating a lot more veges but still not the best. Slow and steady wins the race right?
Wednesday came around and I had just finished work at about 6:30 AM and I thought to myself “you know what, before it pisses down with rain again, I’m going to go for a walk” So 6:30 Wednesday morning i went for another walk around the lake.
It is now Friday, I havent been for another walk, and we just had lasagna for dinner, not the healthiest but i did add 1/3 of a bag of spinach and 3 carrots into the mixture to make it a bit healthier. I also want to note that as much as my day walks have been minimal, i do have a somewhat active job delivering the New Zealand herald 7 days per week, which consists of getting in and out of my car 150 times which according to my fit bit burns around 500 calories depending on how fast i go to get my heart rate up. Mum and i are going for a walk tomorrow to get coffee again so that will be nice.
Now you have a run down of how my last week has gone, I wanted to share with you A haul video I uploaded to my YouTube Channel of all the healthier foods we bought for the week, this will give you a fair idea of how i have been eating.
