I got myself a Fitbit.. it’s great! It tracks my steps each day, calories burned, and my sleep patterns. It’s interesting to see what I’m actually doing, and helps me to strive to reach those goals :-)
I still haven’t seen any major changes in myself so far, but hopefully I will. I’m taking tablets and things from the Naturopath now, and just have to stay active and eat right.. 8 months ago
Finally a full day of healthy living! I went for a walk, ate healthy food, spent quality time with my partner, and engaged in activities that I find enriching. Ahhh… 9 months ago
So I’m back at uni now, so have more free time to make sure I dedicate myself to this goal!
My uni day involves an up hill walk in the morning and a downhill walk when I’m heading home. Quite challenging to start off with but I’ll get used to it!
Just need to do some extra exercise and get my diet in check. Seeing the naturopath in a few weeks time finally! 9 months ago
I’ve never been this unhealthy in my life. I’m 30 pounds overweight, which doesn’t look or feel good. My skin is terrible. I have no energy to get through the day. And a few of my medical conditions have really started to flare up. Something’s gotta give. It’s time for a change.
I’d like to kickstart a healthy routine by doing a three day juice cleanse. I will go grocery shopping for fruits and veggies this weekend, and start the cleanse on Monday. After that, I will try to get as many nutrients into my body as possible, and cut out the crap.
Starting tomorrow, I will go for a walk everyday. I’ve got my Fitbit charging as I speak. Maybe I will try to walk 10,000 steps a day. Not sure about that yet. But I’m going to put a pair of running shoes in the car in case I want to go for a walk after work sometimes, and store my earpodz in my purse because walking is not pleasant when you have an earache from the wind.
I will bring my water bottle with me everywhere, and try to drink 64 ounces of water each day. I won’t forget to take my vitamins and iron supplements.
What I’d really like to do is strengthen my immune system. I don’t know if that’s even possible or not, but I’m going to look into it. Maybe I should look into seeing a naturopath. They are so expensive though. Anyway, any advice is welcome. I’ve been in this boat for a while, but I finally feel fed up enough to do something about it. Here we go! 9 months ago
It’s been about a month and I am still making a conscious effort to make healthier choices. I do struggle with losing weight and keeping it off – so far I had lost 3.6 kilos at best, but this has gone up a bit again sadly! – more like 2.6 ish kg lost. But not going to let a couple of bad days on the scales stop me from this goal!
I do feel a little bit healthier, in the way that I don’t feel completely “bleerrrgggghhhh” as I would if I was eating junk food.
I thought of another weight-loss reward.
My first one, for when I’ve lost 7kg was to get another tattoo.
My second one for when I’ve lost 12kg will be to get a field scope (great for my bird watching!)
My third one for when I’ve lost 20kg might be an overseas trip or something :-) 10 months ago
I’ve been recording my weight every day for 18 days now… And I’ve lost 2.5 kilos (about 5 – 5.5 pounds) so far. Very happy as I’ve mainly just been focusing on eating healthily, with just walking as exercise. I haven’t been depriving myself either, I’ve had chocolate a few times, just not everyday like I used to. And I can’t see myself turning into a gym junkie either. Best way for me is slowly and naturally, otherwise I’ll get sick of whatever crazy diet or workout I’m doing and stop, then put it all back on, which is what’s happened to me in the past.
I feel healthier inside, I’ve only had one bad headache in the last few weeks, which only lasted a few hours (that’s good for me!)
I just need to keep doing what I’m doing and not give in to temptation and I should be able to reach a healthier weight in about 6 months, and be where I want to be and have stabilised it by the end of the year. And soon I will see my naturopath who will find out if there are any hormonal or other things holding me back too. 11 months ago
Been eating healthily, finally walked a bit more tonight, logged 1.86 miles (3km) on moonjoggers – my first log!
Got my naturopath appointments, would be great if I can lose a bit by then, just gonna try to stick to it, taking it one day at a time, and not depriving myself but not being a piggy! Having small amounts of chocolate, but I’m enjoying my healthy food. 11 months ago
Today was my first day back at work following my surgery. Everything feels fine with that, but yesterday I had a bit of a mishap – I wasn’t drunk! – I accidentally stepped in like a pothole in a path and twisted my ankle and fell over, so my ankle is all swollen, knees grazed and one bleeding, and my toe skin grazed and bleeding. So needless to say it may be a few days before I can exercise properly by walking, and because of my surgery I’m not allowed to do too much else at the moment!
On the positive side – I ate pretty healthily today! I had toast with honey and chia seeds for breakfast, yoghurt, fruit and air popped popcorn as snacks during the day, smoked tuna for lunch, and for dinner I went out for dinner with a friend and had a salad with chicken, salmon and prawns in it – I know it sounds like a weird combo but it really works! – and I had WATER to drink, no soft drink or anything else all day! So I’m happy with myself, the only naughty thing I had was about 4 Lindt chocolates, a secret Santa gift which I only got today! :-) 11 months ago
