28 weeks of health and fitness: week one done!

Last week I set myself the following goals;

1. Drink lots of water. – I’ve managed to stick at this one! I take a bottle of water out with me when I walk the dog and keep one on my desk at work.

2. Exercise daily. – I have managed this one! And I’m pretty happy with myself. I have gone walking in my lunch time to avoid sitting down all day as well.

3. Do at least 1 thing everyday that makes me happy .- Yep! I’m lucky to have a lot of positive things in my life and I made the conscious effort to do at least one thing everyday to make me happy or bring more happiness to my day. Monday I went for a lovely walk, Friday a Belgium bun.

A lovely walk over the hill.I love taking Duke to agility Trip to the cove.

4. Eat healthily. – Belgium bun aside I’ve been pretty good. Lots of salad and fruit.

5. Avoid snacking. – surprisingly I have managed it. I have kept following the 8:16 though as it’s been pretty successful. It also gives me 0 time to snack.

6. Get more sleep. – I failed a lot at this one! Although I did have a two hour nap Saturday afternoon.

7. Run at least 4 times a week. Yeah I wasn’t successful here thanks to migraines and generally feeling unwell this week; but I’m feeling hopeful for next week! My kit is already packed.

8. Do at least 3 other types of exercise a week. – I have Run, Walked and did A Circuits session.

9. Achieve 10,000 steps every day. I averaged out over the 10,000 steps. Saturday I didn’t hit the target as agility training with the dog was so tiering I fell asleep when I got home; but hopefully next week I’ll do a-bit better.

So my first week wasn’t too bad!! But my second week is going to be better! And the targets are as follows:

1. Drink lots of water.

2. Exercise daily. Over 2 hours a day of physical activity.
