Only 4,200 steps done today and no varied exercise unless you consider marching on the spot as I did office work, and my night walk along unmade rough tracks with bumps and holes to avoid, and learning (third evening in a row without using y outdoor making frame) to do the walk without the aid of the seat to rest on and needing to be self reliant on my legs to maintain my balance, a varied exercise routine.
I fell short of my minimum target of 6,000 steps that I consider essential to minimize the risk of my getting a fourth PE. 6.ooo steps, spread throughout the waking hours, and aiming for 10,000 is my pledge to my doctor. If I slip up on that minimum, I'm supposed to inject myself with blood thinners as I'm at high risk. I slept all afternoon as I'd had to stay up all night doing an online conference being run on London time.
My preparation of making a pot of home grown vegetables with chick peas and red lentils' soup worked. I ate healthily, and did not overeat, despite the weird working hours my work entailed. Pre-planning and being motivated due to my commitment to be accountable to a group—you—worked for me. I'll just get my day'- report in here and on my Live It Slim blog before midnight. Another commitment (to maintain public accountability to a peer group-to keep my motivation consistent) achieved.
Pre-planning and being motivated due to my commitment to be accountable to a group—you, worked for me. I'll just get my day'- report in before midnight. I had no time to read what I was supposed to eat or the exercise that I was supposed to do. I did my best, and I'm proud of that. I know that I've ended each day so far, since signing up for 12WBT, by having eaten at least 500 calories less that I normally would have done, if trying t do this, eating at an optimum level for weight management on my own. That's enough to stop any further weight gain and possibly enough to drop about .500 gram a week if I kept this amount of effort up.
Now my partner, who I care for by day is heading off to bed and my working day starts. I will set a timer to ring every 25 minutes and get up when it rings to clean the house for five minute speed intervals. That's my interval training. It has been a good day. I learned heaps in that overnight conference and got through a high risk 36 hours for under exercise and overeating with minimal back-sliding.
