....continued with my healthy eating program. I've been reading the I Quit Sugar website and trying to go along with a sugar free September. Whilst I don't necessarily eat a lot of sugar, it is a real wakeup call to see how much sugar is in just about everything. Well, most processed goods and (gasp) alcohol. So I am reading labels and trying to follow the Just Eat Real Food (JERF) strategy.
Big breakfast / lunch of rye toast, some cottage cheese, home grown greens (parsley, baby spinach) with home grown tomatoes and eggs.
Prior to this feast, I had acquainted myself with my new best friend (who am I kidding?). A kettleball purchased recently (Aldi $8). I have to say I am surprised how much I am enjoying exercising and following some beginner kettleball exercises found online. I think 4kg is possibly the lightest kettleball ever made but it still gets heavy after 5 minutes or so. I remind myself that my son weighed over 4kg as a newborn and I certainly did my share of lifts, squats, bicep curls etc. back then - so this should be a piece of cake.
All part of my new found Spring enthusiasm. I am alternating this with increasing my daily walk just that little bit further each day. I'm up to about an hour at the moment. You see, we are off on another holiday soon which will involve a lot of walking. Not organised walking, but tourist walking and bush walks. I think I will to be a bit fitter - our holidays certainly seem to involve a lot of eating! As long as it's healthy right!?
