June plan

Wednesday, June 04, 2014

Jeans are less snug, but I am not at my goal yet. Some of the strategies for last month did not really work out that great, I am not that good at tracking that consistently. Or nixing sweets completely. I've taken that on board, and plan to continue to lose weight despite this. So in June I will;

- Eat whole healthy foods.

- Move my body every day.

- Eat fresh fruits and vegetables in copious amounts.

- Eat sweets in moderation.

- Do something really nice for myself at least weekly.

- Do something really nice for my family at least weekly.

Happy June!

Another jog.. Phew!

Friday, May 30, 2014

Last autumn I started jogging. It was amazing! Yes, at first I felt incredibly unfit. I was huffing and puffing along lobster-red in the face.. I had to take short breaks on nearly every bend in the road, and I was not really convinced this jogging thing was for me.

Even though I did not have a flying start, I decided to stick with it. And I soon found that I was able to jog faster, and in longer intervals. And I felt OK (sometimes good even!) during my jogs.

I am fortunate to be working in a building really wonderfully located near the waterfront and public parks. This makes me want to jog home, just to get a chance to enjoy the beauty and silence. This week was another sunny week. Due to more-than-usual stress at work (and meetings I figured I could not attend wearing my running gear) I had not been jogging for 2 months. But I figured, hey, I finally have time and energy (sort of). Let's jog!

Ugh. I now have learned that jogging and seasonal allergies just don't mix well. Just a couple of minutes into my jog I was huffing and puffing even worse than I was last autumn during my first jog in ages. And I was going slower. Once I got home I showered and soon collapsed on the sofa and slept 14 hours. Straight. Then woke up with itchy eyes, stuffy nose and a horrible headache.

So no more jogging outside for now. Not until whatever is bothering me in the air has cleared. Until then I probably should find an alternative way to get my heart pumping, but right now I am at a loss as to what this could be. I'm not a fan of indoor exercise..

At least I did manage to take quite a few pictures during my many, many breaks;


This is what greets me on my jog home! Started with a spring in my step, feeling as fresh as the breeze.


This little beauty was almost outshining the sun!


My jog-nemesis, the evil (but oh so gorgeous!) pollenizers!


Taken during one my many breaks..


And by this point I was dragging my feet the rest of the way home..

    Love the pics; totally understand your plight; I have allergies too so I do indoor exercises. I love anything intense and difficult because its so rewarding when I master it. explore and see what you like. Hope you find something soon. emoticon emoticon

    Bummer! Sorry to hear of your respiratory troubles. Sounds like a clear message to find something else to do for the time being, indeed. Lovely pics though!
