rest day

So yesterday was my rest day & I have to admit that it was kind of strange not doing any form of exercise.

I thought about doing something, even just going for a leisurely walk, but I know if I did that once I was out walking there would be nothing leisurely about it. I’d end up pushing myself to go further & faster & that would totally defeat the purpose of having a day off.

And we all need rest days. This is something I only just realised. Every other time I have tried to lose weight & get fitter I would go hell for leather & make myself workout everyday only to burn out after a few weeks.

So I have incorporated two rest days into my current routine, Thursdays & Sundays. Mainly because I need to take a breather, some time to rest & recuperate. Because I know my body, & I know that the second it starts feeling overworked its going to be all like screw this I’m giving up.

lunch

Well it looks like I may very well be taking things seriously this time around. This time around hopefully also being the last time.

I’ve been doing exercise of some description everyday this week, that’s right people i’ve done some form of physical activity for a whole 4 days straight, say it isn’t so.

I’ve also started eating better as well. Case in point I just had oats for lunch. I mean who has oats for lunch? Well I do! They are healthy, nutritious & fingers crossed they are going to help stave off the dreaded 3pm-itis aka must eat copious amounts of something sugary before I lapse into a coma.

And it may not seem like much, but if you jump in a time machine with me & travel back 12 months, hell even 6 months, lunch would have consisted of something along the lines of a loaf of white bread, lashings of butter, a can of coke & a block of chocolate chaser.
