Week 8: I will exercise more!

15th February 2020img_1271

As always if you are interested feel free to read but a reminder that this is a diary that I am enjoying writing to keep me on track. 

I’ve kinda struggled these past couple of weeks with logging everything I eat and making sure I am keeping myself accountable, so I have tried to do better this week. It has been a good week, back to work and back to routine, I have made my potion sizes smaller and I am getting ready for weigh in next week by creating an exercise goal. I want to complete the couch-5k so I need to start getting up early mornings and making my body move!

 

Daily Calorie Goal: 1650|Daily Water Goal: 2L|Weekly Exercise Goal: 2 hrs

We have been given some weather warnings so all my plans for today kind of got turned upside down and we ended up having a rainy day inside, it did however mean that I could be very conscious with my food intake and my water consumption. Although, I did miss out on a walk. Ah well there’s always tomorrow.

Sunday – day 47

Managed to get out this morning and spent a lovely proportion of the morning walking around a lake. We then went to a garden centre which was my ideal morning. My legs still hurt from Thursdays gym session but it felt good to give myself a good start to the work week. Now I just need to keep it up!
