The start to my day was less than gracious. D and I went for a run, and just like on day 2, I felt like my legs were running through mud. No matter how hard I tried, I could not move them quickly, and I trotted around the park at a snails pace. Boy I was cranky! Mostly just with myself.
I got on the scales and discovered I’d lost 400g overnight! How cool is that?! I’ve lost well over 1kg so far. I forgot to weigh myself before I started going fructose-free, so it may be more like 2 kgs.
I’ve been pretty hungry today, but again today it seems like the times between my meals and morning and afternoon snack are getting longer. In fact, I haven’t eaten an afternoon snack today. It’s just after 4pm right now, and I’m a little bit hungry, but not enough to go foraging for a snack.
I’ve had great motivation to keep up my exercising too. I’ve enrolled some of my work clients in Wellington’s Round the Bays 7k run/walk. As part of their entry, they get free use of a gym for 3 months. You should have seen their faces – some had never been in a gym before (and this one is flash) as a gym membership is beyond their means. They were so excited, and already have boxing lessons lined up on Saturday. I might just join them. I’m also looking forward to the day of the Round the Bays itself. We’re putting a team together made up of clients, staff and volunteers. It will be heaps of fun, but mostly I think it will help to break down some of the them vs us barriers that exists between our clients and the people that help them.
