One month completed of my One hundred healthy days challenge, and I’m feeling proud that I am starting to put my health first.
Days 15 – 28 have been good. I wouldn’t say they’ve been 100% more like 85% but it’s a big difference to how my habits were a month ago.
Here’s how the last two weeks have gone;
NO BINGE EATING.
As with weeks one and two of this challenge I would say that I hit about 90% on this goal – a small improvement on the first two weeks. Having identified that I have a tendency to binge eat during and after drinking I have curbed my drinking some what. When I have has a drink I have been allowing myself one drink an hour and not getting a second drink until I’ve finished the one in my hand. I’ve also been drinking more water when having drinks at dinner.
Another fantastic two weeks for daily movement. I have made an effort every day to get outside and walk, even if it’s just round the block briskly. My half marathon training has helped with daily activity as I’ve upped my weekly miles, but I’m telling myself that when I don’t want to run a walk is just as good.
FOUR WORKOUTS A WEEK.
This one has been an easy goal to hit now I’m back in training. I need to ensure that when I’ve completed my race I stick to four workouts a week. Yo-yoing as I currently do isn’t great.
DAILY STRENGTH AND CONDITIONING.
Another goal I am really enjoying and one I’m continuing to see the benefit of quite quickly, so I’ve upped my reps again and will start to use some resistance bands over the next few weeks to up the intensity and up my strength.
Looking back at the goals I set myself after two weeks; I have curbed my drinking, I smashed my goal of adding 5,000 extra steps to my weekly total and hit 10,000, I upped my reps on my daily conditioning and continued running. The one goal I didn’t hit was cross training so I’ll be taking this goal forward onto the next 2 week.s
PLAN OF ACTION, DAYS 29 – 28, WEEK 5-6
- Do one cross training or strength training workout a week
- Hit a 12.00/mi pace on one of my runs
- Add resistance bands to daily conditioning
- Continue to curb the drinking
