encouraging each other to care well for the bodies God has given us
by being active, eating wisely, and relaxing adequately
It’s been an okay exercise week although the day we spent exploring Augustine College involved no exercise whatsoever. Food wise, well, I’ve fallen off the yoghurt/soaked foods bandwagon and need to get back on.
So here’s how my goals went this week:
Record my fitness accomplishments each day… Yes.
Go for a daily walk and average 7500 steps a day … The treadmill is so handy! Although I did walk along the road, most of the walking was done inside: 6500, 8000, 8900, 3600 (Augustine College day), 4700, 6400 steps, for an average of 6350 steps.
Do my physio exercises 5 or 6 days a week … Four and a half times. The last two days I’ve been increasing the repetitions on some of my physio exercises. I’ve finally reached the goal, and if I can keep this up, I’ll be going for a physio visit soon to see what’s next.
Do a tiny bit of the Callanetics maintenance program with Miss 15 five days a week… I did 5% to 10% of the recommended repetitions four times this week. From experience I know better than to increase rapidly, but it’s so tempting, especially since Miss 15 is doing the full program.
Do 10 repetitions of my eye exercises 5 days a week, relax my eyes whenever I think of it, and smile at my work. …Yes, 5 times.
Avoid sugar five days a week … Almost. Five cookies, spread over the weekend, and a sliver of chocolate cake yesterday.
Eat lots of vegetables, including fresh ones, and yoghurt, as well as one fermented or soaked food a week … Lots of fruit, a decent amount of vegetables, very little yoghurt, and no soaked buckwheat.
Eat substantial breakfasts … Most days, yes. It makes a huge difference in our energy levels.
Relax daily…Yes, and it was so necessary!
Spend time outside… Very little. It’s either wet and muddy or cold and icy. We’ve been airing out the house instead, and it sure helps, but it’s not the same.
Have fun with the kids, including active fun… We read aloud, laughed, and chatted together. Miss 15 prefers to exercise alone.
