Yeah!!!! One week in and my headaches from sugar withdrawal have gone, cravings have mostly gone except when I am reading a book and it describes the deliciousness of Krispie Kreme donuts. Damn you authors, tempting me to break my diet.
Anyway, I have run a bit, cycled a bit this week. This is me in all my fatness. I am putting it out there because this is a…get me back to fitness blog now, until I am fit enough to cycle further.
Breakfasts: this week have consisted of egg white omelettes and salmon. To be honest I am always surprised when the salmon changes colour on cooking, mornings.
Lunch: homemade soups, usually some meat and veggie cooked and whizzed with a hand blender. Whatever I see in the shop.
Dinner: whatever needs finishing in the fridge, but non carb, so no bread or rice, cookies or sweets, or fruit. Actually this week I took myself out for steak and wine.
Snacks: cheese, little dried fish, squid pieces, nuts.
This is one time living in Japan helps, there are lots of weird snacks if you are brave enough.
I did it, I started a diet and exercise program. And on a Wednesday, not a Monday. That is an accomplishment in itself. Not going to go into too many details about that as there are so many out there and many debunkers of all regimes. Basically I am reducing carbs, increasing fresh veggies with 30 minutes of some for of exercise a day…even if it is just quick walking on the treadmill.
Today I cycled to buy fresh food. I as going to go in the car then laughed at myself…missed opportunity avoided. It was nice to be on the bike, even if I have only missed it a week. Plus I took the advice of fitrecovery.wordpress.com and got a soft cover for my cameras too. That means I can cycle somewhere with a camera without it digging in my back or worrying to much about damage.
