So today I thought ‘haven’t gone outside for a walk/ run in a while’ (Earlier in the year i was out every night either taking the pooch for a walk or just going for a lil jog/run.) So I got my trainers on and grabbed my ipod. I was appalled by my lack of fitness – seriously, what used to be a forty-minute-jog/20 minute run was a 5 minute struggle. I swallowed at least 7 flies, choked on my own breath and couldn’t go any further.
So when i struggled back home i thought to myself how i had gone back to this lazy style of living?! Mostly exam stress if i’m honest. So starting from now, I’m aiming to get to a slimmer body bit by bit… and i’ll do this by building up my stamina again – going for more walks turning that into a jog then eventually back to running.
My diet will need to improve also – just made my breakfast and lunch for tomorrow a few minutes ago.. but if i’m going to truly stay motivated I’ll post about each day on this. Hey – maybe it can inspire a few others or even give you recipe ideas!
For my breakfast i made a smoothie I used
-1/2 cup of frozen berries
-1 very very ripe kiwi
-1 cup of cold green tea
-1 tsp of honey
-2 tbsp oats
I just blended all these ingredients up and it’s now in the fridge ready for me to drink in the morning. I used to make these for every morning earlier in the year – I think it’s a great, refreshing drink to help wake me up in the morning. It’s great for people that aren’t a fan of breakfasts. 🙂
I got a small portion of each of these vegetables and put them in a tub, ready for lunch time.
I’m looking forward to having proper foods in my diet again, definitely gives a healthier feeling. Let me know if you have any yummy, healthy recipes that i could try out… I’m not really a fussy eater so any suggestions would be great!
