Hi. I just started my 'health kick' on Thursday of last week, but I'm already feeling so much better! (I actually have a cold though, which is a bugger, but it's forcing me to drink heaps of water so as to keep my throat from being so damn dry) I don't have any scales so I don't know if I've lost any weight.. Yesterday I power walked 8 laps of the oval at the uni, and today, we have rotten weather; windy and raining, so I did the nutbush for 30 minutes (12 freakin' times of the nutbush!!) instead. I was so sweaty (and still am) after, so, it must have made for a good workout. I know of some people who lost like 15 kilos just from doing Dance Dance Revolution, but, I don't have a playstation or a dancemat, so, I thought, "people still danced before there were dancemats", and got the nutbush up on youtube, and off I went. It was some hardcore nutbushing.
I suspect that at the moment I'm between 84-87 kilos, but I'd like to at or around 75 by my birthday in June, if not, no more than 80 at the MOST.
I've been eating really well. I haven't had any soft drinks (ONLY WATER! Yesterday I drank literally about 4 litres!) since Thursday, or chocolates, or lollies, or biscuits, or chips, etc etc etc etc. I work in fast food and we have a lot of 'regulars'.. There is a lady who can barely fit behind the steering wheel in her minivan, and is rather massive (I know this is mean), but it really helps to think about how much I DON'T want to be that big and have my life revolve around what time I'm going to Hungry Jack's that day... So. I bought about 15 of those little 70gram tins of flavored tuna and have had one of those on a soy linseed bread roll and two 600mL bottles of water for each meal. I've also had at least 3 pieces of fruit each day. I've got to work on my vegetable intake, but tomorrow night I'm having my sister come and stay with me at the dorm (and ususally we'd get a pizza or something) and I'm cooking prawns and brocolli with brown rice. It'll be delish, and I'll be sure not to over indulge. I'll also buy us one of those little tiny incy wincy Weight Watchers icecream tubs, I think, just for a treat.
I had about 3/4 cup of cooked pasta mixed with a 70gm tin of tuna in springwater for lunch today, and two oranges! I think I've had about a litre and a half of water so far and want to be to 3 before bed time.
I have a friend coming to visit me from the States this summer and I want to take her all around Tassie and do all the hikes and adventurous stuff I can. We're also going to do the Sydney Harbour Bridge Climb (which will be my treat to myself!! It costs like 200 bucks!) in November and that requires a pretty good level of fitness. I just want to be able to be adventurous and gogogo and feel awesome, so... I'm so into it.
I'm so motivated, and I'm really glad to be here. You guys are all so inspiring!
Thanks heaps for reading.
