Firstly let me begin by sharing my current goals with you:
♥ Drink more water
♥ Run a minimum of 4 kilometres (2.5 miles) 4 times per week
♥ Get more control over my '3-oclock-itis' at work (when I get tired in the afternoons and just want a high sugar pick me up)
My philosophy when it comes to food is (in a nutshell) 'everything in moderation'. Those of you who are connected with me on My Fitness Pal (username 'herecomesthesunblog' if you'd like to add me) will see that I still have sweet treats throughout the week but I've gotten pretty disciplined with portion control so I can eat what I like without stuffing myself. My biggest issue is getting afternoon sugar lows but I'm working on this and I think for me having a bigger lunch will help. And I'm happy to say I'm doing well with my goal to drink more water and I've noticed quite a difference in my skin already!
This week I only managed 3 runs instead of the 4 I was aiming for. I could probably come up with excuses (hard to find the time, super cold now it's Autumn etc etc) but really none of them are valid. But I did have a few successes in my runs too, including shaving a few minutes off my time on one route. I think my exercise goal for next week should be to include some calisthenics and pilates in my routine as well to keep it well rounded.
