….but we are all fabulous.
So we’re 15 days into 2017 and almost half way through January. So far my new year’s resolutions are going well – assisted by Janathon (a small band of hardy Facebookers braving the elements to exercise every day in January), MyFitnessPal and The Body Book by Cameron Diaz.
So far I have done some exercise everyday and I have racked up:
In addition I have cut out chocolate (except an occasional end of evening square of 70% dark chocolate), cakes, biscuits and crisps. I am also eating more brown rice, brown rice pasta and oats and almost no processed food. I rarely feel hungry or cravings and I have lost 2 pounds so far.
One thing that doing the walking every day has made me realise is how much incidental walking I used to do before I had a car. When I lived in Bristol in my 20s I would walk everywhere. I didn’t have enough money for taxis and rarely bothered with the bus. My friends and I didn’t think twice about walking 2/3 miles into town or back. Now, it needs planning into the day.
Let’s see how I feel at the end of the month, but so far, I am pretty pleased!
