NOvember 2

Yesterday I celebrated seven days without coffee. But what was even more important was it was also seven days of consecutive exercise. I can't remember the last time I did that. I think that the fact that each bout of exercise is only 20 minutes long really helps. Even if the workout for the day is really hard, I know it's only for 20 minutes, so it seems manageable. And then I follow it up with a walk in the park, which is pure pleasure. On the one day where there's no workout planned, I just do a longer walk. If little and often is the only way I can get exercise done at the moment, so be it.

Three ticks again for me for NOvember...

6.45: lemon water with Combust

Exercise: Physical Fitness Test followed by 25-minute walk with TJ

8.00: banana smoothie while stretching

8.15: shower and get changed into non-bag-lady-clothes (same as yesterday)

9.00: gluten-free toast with Flora pro-active and St Dalfour four fruit spread; oats with soy milk and cherries

12.00: lentil and roasted eggplant soup, gluten-free bread with Flora pro-active

4.30: fibre drink, pear

Yum – lentil and eggplant roasted soup and Cadbury Old Gold Rum And Raisin Chocolate! I did not even know this type of chocolate existed!

Hi Charlotte!!

Wow 7 days without coffee - I'm impressed. I'm slowly trying to cut back also... but don't think I can live without my morning one. Sounds like you are doing awesome with your exercise. I agree with the 20 mins blocks - its so much easier to break it down mentally that way.

Thanks Shannon, still having some coffee cravings but it's been easier than I thought!

Nice work Charlotte. Good to see a bit of chocolate in there too!

Charlotte Orr said...

Hi Kathleen, that explains why you might not get that chocolate there! I'm sure you have lots of other yummy things though!
