Goals for 2014
run 10 miles per week ( aim to continue all year) tick 12.5 miles last week, 5 so far this week 3days to go
no alcohol (aim for 1 month) tick fine for me. Hubby I think is missing a drinking partner. He won’t open a bottle of wine just for him ( even though we cork it and put it back in the fridge after a glass!) it will be good for him!
plant based diet (aim for one month) doing ok. I have avoided meat and most dairy products successfully. I have been having milk (well it is a plant based not a vegan diet) in by breakfast tea but have introduced more herbal tea and black coffee. I’m also avoiding processed foods. In view of the absence of junk food I do seem to have kept my daily average calorie balance to 1200 (as calculated using my fitness pal) for a whole week( first ever) and I have lost One whole pound in weight!
in general I find that I seem to feel full quicker, but I do get hungry again quite soon. I am starting to appreciate the different flavours of lots of veg, sugar snap peas are really quite sweet! I did my first Parkrun today since august. I was really hoping for a PB But can you believe it, I was 1 second slower than my previous PB. I’m hoping to knock 5 minutes off by the end of the year, but that’s 30 seconds every month and I have knocked nothing off in 6! I might have to give some consideration to whether or not that is a realistic or achievable goal.
