This Monday I was wandering through the local shop with the kids. It was MUCH later than normal but between TAFE work and procrastination I hadn’t gotten dinner yet. I looked like hell because I had been busy all day and planning on working out since that morning so I hadn’t showered, hadn’t washed my hair, hadn’t put on makeup… I looked like hell.
I have been looking for a way to be accountable for my fitness or lack thereof for a while and.. well… This seems like as good an idea as any!
So I am a wannabe runner… Actually no you know what I am a runner. I run slowly and I am certainly not competing against anyone but myself but I run, and I enjoy it.
At the moment I am re-doing the C25K routine because I am sorry to say that after completing the bridge run in September of last year I let my running lapse and didn’t really start again until we moved. Needless to say I ended up back at square one both with my weight and with my fitness.
So my starting weight is: 85kg (yipes! when did THAT happen)
I do my best to get out and run/walk at least 3 times a week, sometimes 4 if I can manage it. I am also adding a gym member ship and pump classes to the mix. Although a small blip as appeared in the form of Bowen Therapy. I have had lower back pain and some pain in my left leg for a while now and decided to give bowen therapy a try after hearing good things. One of the therapists first rules was no running for the next few weeks so that she can get my back sorted. Boo! But here’s to hoping it makes a difference right? So pump classes alone it is, but that will give me a great foundation to get back out there ASAP once I AM allowed to run again!
I have also started tracking calories on MFP and have managed to stay reasonably consistent with it. When I can say I have logged in for 7 days in a row I will be a happy woman.
So the question is anyone have any no supplement/drink/crash diet advice? or has anyone tried bowen therapy and had some success?
