Day Four: Sunday January 8th

Walking: Hardly any walking today either. Well it rained and was cold is my excuse.
The Squat: Did 60 squats again. Its supposedly toning me up. Some alarming aches in my upper leg have emerged.
Drinking Water: Do i have to, like, keep drinking all this water, forever ??
Food and Drink: I've realised this list looks a lot longer than the ones in the papers...Some kippers (oh yes!) and a fairly big homemade mango and ginger smoothie for breakfast, reconstituted minestrone soup from night before for lunch; roast chicken, potatoes, gravy, broccoli and peas for supper, had 1 latte in am and 1 (large) bottle of beer in evening. 2 slices of homemade gingerbread cake, a few of my son's crisps and an apple.

No cheese today!

Day Three: Saturdy January 7th

Walking: Didn't do much today. (you only have to do this 3 times a week!) Walked around Sainsburys pushing a lot of apple juice cartons.
The Squat: Tried the Squat out. Don't know if I did it right but did the 60 fairly easily. Felt a little euphoric at the end. Blimey.
Drinking Water: Yep drowned myself in water all day. Over 2 litres. Lots of trips to the loo today.
Food and Drink: Porridge, fairly big mango smoothie for breakfast, salad, tuna and bean thing, a couple of homemade chips for lunch, homemade minestrone soup for supper (with grated chese and bread), twiglets and cheese snack watching tv. 2 lattes and 2 (large) glasses of red wine.

I still feel a bit fat, but its going ok. presumably too much cheese.

Day Two: Friday January 6th

Walking: Up to station and back again in the night. Bloody cold today. Little out of breath on the hill bits. Tempted to get a taxi in the evening but queue too long so forced myself to walk back.
The Squat: yet again couldn't find the time/inclination to do this.
Drinking Water: Forced myself to do this. More trips to the loo but easier than i thought. 2 litres really isn't that much.
Food and Drink: Apple for breakfast, fish and chips for lunch, 1 bag of crisps snack, 1 cheese roll snack, baked potato, cheese and salad for supper. Cider on train. Wine with dinner. 1 strawberry and banana smoothie. 2 (big) lattes.

How do i feel ? the same. i think.

Day One: Thursday Jan 5th

Walking: To station from house in morning. To house from Brighton station
Drinking Water: Over 2 litres
Tone Up Exercise: Meant to but didn't get round to it.

You're supposed to do 20 minutes of walking, cycling or swimming. I chose walking to Brighton station but its a little bit less than 20 minutes. That said I did it twice. Will that count ? I started drinking a lot of water too. Lots of trips to the loo.

unfit jem

I'm out of shape and in 7 months time I'm 40. Oh dear. So I've signed up to this.
One of the commitments is "start a training diary" asking me to record a whole bunch of stuff that I'm not really sure how I'm going to do. "your resting heart rate" ?.
