Last weeks challenges were okay. My healthy habits challenge completely went out the window over the weekend. Again. My running challenge I did 1 out of 3 runs. Not good enough. Time to get strict. I have read about making an exercise contract with yourself. I think this is a good idea. It is a simple idea. You write out a contract that you sign, have co-signed, then are obligated to stick to. I would like to ask all of you to co-sign my exercise contract.
"I, Kylie, commit to sticking to my running training for the remainder of the timetable set out (barring injury). I will run 3 times a week with the goal of being able to run 1km at the end of the challenge."
Week 3 of my Healthy Habit a Week Challenge sees me introduce a new challenge. This weeks challenge is to record my food. I still have to drink my water and eat my fruit as well as recording the food. Today went well. Now for tomorrow...
On to other topics....
Pepsi Max. Oh how I love thee Pepsi Max. I love thee bubbles. I love thee caffeine. I love thee taste. But it is crap. It is turning my teeth brown and it is filled with yucky nasty chemicals. I suck it down all weekend and don't drink any water. My sleep is disturbed, my tummy always bloated, and it makes me hungry. It is time. I will not go cold turkey. I don't have time for a 4 day migraine. I am going to slowly cut back and replace it it tea and coffee. When I am off the Pepsi (and over the withdrawls from the chemicals) I will then cut back the tea and coffee. Today went well. Only 3 glasses (I normally drink 2 litres).
Food for today was okay, although I did go over my calories. I am PMS'ing - although I have been for about 2 weeks, my bad food has made my cycle extra long this month - and I am always starving when I am PMS'ing. I did okay though and made some good choices.
Breakfast was the normal - oats with rice milk and some seeds/nuts and a squirt of honey.
Morning tea was 2 Salada Lites with cheese. I forgot to take a pic so here is the box. :o)
Lunch was a big green salad with 2 eggs and a dollop of cottage cheese.
Followed by watermelon & rockmelon.
Afternoon Tea was another Salada with cheese.
When I got home from work I decided to be naughty and have one of my Mega Choc Chunks. I say naughty because I worked out the calories and these suckers are over 400 calories EACH!!!!
Dinner was egg noodles with the last of the Mexican Lentils that I thinned out with another can of tomatos.
Now there are rumours that after dinner my have contained another naughty biccie, but this is something I can not confirm or deny... :o)
Fingers crossed my ankle is feeling better tomorrow.
