Soooooo I have done it again! My second run! I did the same amount of time as I am using the podcast BUT I did it faster…my average mile was faster than last time and I figure that as I am combining running and walking and my Nike app thinks I am running its a pretty good speed! I must have a right march on!! I do have to admit though that I was sooooo hot as the weather has suddenly improved! I was a bright colour purple for quite a while after and until after my shower when I was just looking a bit sun kissed! The purple was not a good look! I do have to admire the honesty of my darling daughter as she clearly stated when I walked into the living room ‘ooo you smell Mummy!’ Charming! I suppose I can use that as a sign of a good workout!
In the past when I have started diets I have always reduced food before exercising but I have to say that this time I am on it! Starting the exercise at the same time as reducing my calorie intake has made the world of difference and I feel really good. I already feel like I have lost weight but for some reason that is not my main priority; it is more about how I feel inside. I still believe that a huge part of this is the exclusion of wheat and gluten.
Oh I must also mention as well that I have found my skin is a lot clearer. This I am putting down to the fact that since reducing my calories I have obviously cut out many sweeties! One obvious one is my beloved and most dearest ‘chocolate digestives’ waaaah! That is one thing I miss…a nice coffee with a couple of my fave biscuits! But I think the sacrifice is worth it when my skin feels clearer and smoother!
With that in mind I would encourage anyone to focus more on how they feel inside rather than the weekly weigh in and I am sure that the positive feeling you get from changing your lifestyle to a much healthier way your life will improve inside and out!
‘Cleanse from the inside out; watch life be beautiful”
Oh and just or the record 🙂
