Its good for your soul

What is, you may be asking. Well, its exercise!
Exercise is so good for the soul! I’ve just done 20 minutes on the treadmill and now I am feeling great!
I feel fantastic!
I am determined to be down at tomorrow nights weigh in! I have been walking a lot this week! I did go off plan a little, but I am praying and hoping that it wont matter and that I will still be down at weigh in!
I am planning on maybe going back on the treadmill for another 15 minutes later on tonight! And then again in the morning and afternoon before I get weighed in!
Its hard going but so worth it! Especially when you feel so good after the exercise!
I did over 3000 steps just now on the treadmill, 1.2 miles! Thats good going I think!


Awesome weekend!

I’ve had an amazing weekend. On saturday I went to the beach with my mom and my aunt, we had a great time there. We took the bus there and back. The weather was so beautiful. I even got sunburnt on my arms, neck and face. Its not too sore which I am glad about. We had lunch at a very nice restaurant, I did go a little off plan with my food, but I really dont care. All the walking we did will make up for me going off plan a little. We walked for 7.5 miles. I know it was that long as I counted it on my phone. There was a festival of the sea in the town so we walked around the town for a while, taking in all the atmosphere. It was lovely. Then we went to the actual beach. We walked the length of the bord walk along the sea front. Then we sat on the beach for an hour. after that we went to where they have a casino and we played the slot machines for a while. Mom won 25 euro but me and my aunt didnt win anything. Still though it was fun. We had a nice time and a nice day out. It was around 8 pm when we got the bus home. I really enjoyed the day. I was so tired last night that I was in bed and sleep by 10 PM.
Today was more relaxed. This morning I went grocery shopping with mom, I had to get my fruit for the week, my water for the week and a few other bits. My aunt rang while we were grocery shopping, she wanted to know if we wanted to go to a local garden centre to look around at the flowers, so we said we’d go with her. We looked around and then had coffee and it was a very nice day. After we finished there we went back to my aunts house for drinks, we’ve been there all evening. We just got home a few minutes ago.
I love weekends like this one. Making memories, having fun. Thats what life is all about IMO.


Exercising and exercise goals

So I’ve started to be serious about exercising. I have a treadmill, and I need to start using it regularly.

So today I decided, I will make a start. I got on the treadmill twice. I did 10 minutes at a time. I also have an apple watch, and I am able to track my time and distance and speed on it.

I am happy with the result. I feel brilliant and I am impressed with the speed I was able to go at.

If I can keep this trend up, maybe I can really tone up my body. Plus I’ll become super fit. I wont do 7 days a week on it, but I intend to do at least 5 days a week on the treadmill. I will take a break at the weekends as I am not home usually on weekends.

They say it takes 21 days for a habit to form. I hope I can make this a permanent thing and form a new habit of using it regularly.

A slow day

Well its a really relaxed saturday here. A slow day for sure.

I got up late. Well around 10 AM which is late for me. I had slept really good though which was awesome. I went to bed last night at around 8:30. I watched some tv on my phone and was asleep by 10.

After breakfast this morning I went back to bed. I decided I needed some more sleep. And its the weekend, and I had nothing to actually be doing, so I decided it would be ok to rest a little.

When I got up I had an early dinner, mom had made chicken curry and rice, and we had some sweet potato fries with that. It was nice.

I’ve also drank 2 litres of water already today. I’m being mindful of drinking more water. I had a bottle with dinner, and another afterwords, and then two more later on.

After dinner mom and me went for a walk. I took Nitro with me. He enjoyed it and so did I. We went walking for 20 minutes, my phone said we walked for 1.1 miles. We did 1800 steps. The day was glorious, weather was beautiful, and now I am happy as I’ve gotten my exercise in for the day.

I have no plan for this evening, I just plan on relaxing and enjoying some quiet time, binge watching something on tv, etc.


Lazy Friday

I’m having a very lazy day today.
I didnt do much of anything.
Mom went grocery shopping with my sister in the morning. I just stayed home.
I am planning on going out for a walk in a little while. Gotta get my exercise in for the day.
We had a lovely dinner of stuffed chicken with broccoli, peas and mashed potato. It was really nice. I’d bought the stuffed chicken when we were out the other day.
Dad cooked it. He’s a good cook too.
I’m glad I’m going to get a walk in today. Its a beautiful day today. The sun is out and its really warm. I love walking in warm sunny weather.
When I get back I am going to read or watch tv. I’m still not finished my book groomed, by casey watson. The reader of the book is so annoying. It makes it so hard to finish the book.
