22nd July – bbq chicken and a new exercise programme.

Hiya all, hope you are well.

I’m sorry to say it looks as if my herbs have all died off.  I’m gutted 😒.  On a brighter note, what Paul told me were lilies, are actually dahlias, and they’re coming up beautifully!

There’s even success with the strawberries.

At least my onions still look strong.

Had a new discovery for my strength training.  I’d just finished my normal programme and youtube clicked on to another programme.  This one was a 12 minute arm strength routine.  I quite liked it, so I’m gonna incorporate that into my exercise plan from now on, to be done after my usual all over programme. Gotta try and reduce those wings πŸ˜†

And while on the subject of exercise, I went for a walk today with the new insoles in my boots.  Very uncomfortable!  When I got home I immediately got an ice pack out and rested my foot on it.  now I can walk around without pain, however because I didn’t use my brain, I don’t know if I can walk because of insoles or ice pack!

Oh, and my foreheads worse, not as bad as it has been in the past.

And Paul fired up the bbq again, this time for 2 chicken quarters for dinner.  It might seem like a bit of a  waste, but it’s practise for when we invite people over.  Besides it tasted delish!  And we ate outside so it felt different and good…  well right up to the moment our neighbour come round complaining about the bbq smell in his house!

Gonna have to figure out how to change the garden around now so the bbq is as far from his garden as possible and still be safe.  Oh well πŸ˜”

So, on to the daily details…

Sleep – not too bad last night.

Fluid – 200ml milk, 2 cups of tea, 1 glass of cider, glasses of water. Although I’ve hit my target, I do feel as if I should have had more water today.

Food – 40g natural nuts and 75g dried fruits for breakfast.

Cheese and beans on toast for lunch normal baked beans instead of the five beans.

Followed by fruit.

Dinner – chicken with salad, hummus and couscous.

Exercise – over all resistance training, followed by arm strength training, those were my first two logs in photo.

And then a walk. A more gentle walk than normal, very pleasant.

Challenge board –

So another all over good day πŸ™‚

Speak tomorrow.
