I’m definitely on the mend, my cough and snuffly nose are much better so now that my Achilles tendon is also mended I really need to start jogging again, even if its really slowly to start with. I’m back out & about walking Wilson, but my nerve in my cheek still hurts when my painkillers wear off, so I have to wear a cowl or hood or high scarf even when it’s not that cold out. Also this virus comes & goes. Sometimes I feel completely better, and then I get all cold and fluey again. Its a bit horrid 😦
So progress so far:
0 miles, 0 hours training, 6/7 days of taking Wilson for dog walks 🙂 (Not very long or difficult, but at least outdoors!)
I will be including walking Wilson in my training plans, as I do tend to walk fast when I am walking him, and throwing sticks & balls is light exercise too 🙂
Food Diary progress.
I wrote a scale on the front of the diary on which to measure my level of hunger before eating anything, and it’s strange, I think I still don’t know what hungry feels like! I have stomach pains, but I rarely associate them with hunger and am unsure whether they mean I have eaten too much or am hungry. The only way I can tell is by checking what I have eaten recently! This is why I forget top eat until afternoon. Firstly I’m rarely hungry in the morning, and secondly it’s only when I can associate stomach pain with hunger that I consider eating! People don’t get hunger pains first thing in the morning unless they haven’t eaten the night before!
Christmas day & Boxing day were full of evenings of me eating sweets & cakes when when my rating was 8 (full) or higher already. I guess it’s the same for most people!!
I’ve also noticed I crave fruit after eating, but I think you are supposed to eat fruit before other food. I must look that up!
Once I got ill I pretty much stopped eating, but that’s normal. Hoping to be back on track next week. Keeping up fluids 🙂
My target for next week:
Find out about when is best to eat fruit
Complete my food diary every day
Try and at least go for a jog or a brisk walk every day, minimum 1 mile or a cycle of 2 miles.
Blog my progress we very day with the tag Janathon
See you next Wednesday
