20th Sept 2019 – good food day, a decision about exercise

Evening all, hope you are well 😊

I’ve decided that c25k isn’t for me as it stands. My hip was agony all day. The pain has subsided now, but only because of the magic of ibuprofen.

I’m not giving up on it though, I’ve decided instead to do it on my airwalker. This will take pressure off my joints.

I will need to be careful I don’t do too much on the airwalker, it’s a non resistance piece of kit, and my ‘stride’ on it is much, much longer than my own natural stride when walking. Still, I’m looking forward to the workout I will get, especially in conjunction with the c25k programme.

Then, when I’ve lost another half stone, I’ll try properly outside again.

I’m also going to try yoga out, as I think I need to get more flexible.

So I’m hoping to get my regime as follows:

Monday am – airwalker c25k

Monday pm – yoga

Tuesday am – yoga

Tuesday pm – quick cardio, strength 1&2

Wednesday am – airwalker c25k

Wednesday lunch – yoga

Thursday am – yoga

Thursday pm – quick cardio, strength 1&2

Friday am – airwalker c25k

Friday pm – yoga

Saturday – quick cardio, strength 1&2

Sunday – nice country walk

This is the aim, I can’t concentrate on all that properly until I’m back from Wales next weekend, I’ll do as much as I can this coming week though, with at least one exercise thing every day. Also, I’m human, so there will be times I can’t hit it all.

So, onto today.

Exercise – c25k

Fluid – 200ml milk, 2 cups of tea with halfspoon sugar, 1.5l water.

Food – Forgot my nuts, so had 160g fruit for breakfast.

Went to lunch, just with my daughter this week as mum was having work done at her house.

Olives, pineapple, rice, pasta, rice, raisins and low fat vinegarette
I had chicken salad, Amy had halloumi salad
And Pepsi max

Then tonight we had sock eye salmon with spuds, sweetcorn and peas.

So that’s my day.

There’s been a miscommunication between Paul and myself, I thought we had this weekend together, just us, no commitments, in fact i made a point of saying we should have kids last weekend so this weekend we could relax together before Wales next weekend. Paul doesn’t remember this, nor me stating i couldn’t wait for our quiet weekend together.

He ‘reminded’ me that he’s off to London tomorrow over dinner this evening.

I’m feeling quite low at the moment, I was so looking forward to full weekend of us time.

Never mind, there’s plenty of ways I can spend my day tomorrow, visiting my friend, maybe a nice walk, tv programmes I don’t make Paul watch 🤣

It’s also been ages since I’ve done girly things! My nails need some attention as does the monobrow 😊

I am worried about my food tomorrow, we don’t have anything for 1 person. I shall need sensible and motivated head on tomorrow.

Going to chill out for the evening now.

Night all, til tomorrow 🤗

  1. I am new to yoga and absolutely love it. I can get pain in my feet, knees and back from cardio routines. Doing yoga has helped with my sporadic sciatica pain and helps me relax. Yoga with Adrienne is a YouTube channel that I like. Best of luck!
