Great work on the first week. Pushup could benefit from more reps. 4 sets of how many reps are you doing right now? 

 

 

I'm on 4 x 20 push ups with 2 mins rest between. I admit I only did 90 seconds rest on the last session at I didn't feel I needed the 2 minutes. I think it might be time to move to the stairs so I can adjust the level as I progress?

Daaaaay <bingo caller voice> Legs Eleven...

1) complete 4 sets of wall push ups every other day (✔︎ Yes and straight after kettlebell class too! Ouch).

2) eat at least 5 different fruit/veg at least 5 days each week (✔︎ red apple, veg soup (incl. carrot, onion, peas), dahl (incl. carrot & onion), sprouts, onion, coleslaw (incl. red onion, carrot, cabbage) mad green smoothie (incl. courgette, green apple, ginger). Mad combination of food for tea but all lovely :-)

3) drink a glass of water before every evening meal ✔︎ Remembered tonight *before* I started eating. Yay.

4) meditate 5 minutes each day ✔︎ Switched to 10% Happier app after finishing HeadSpace free trial. Feels more suited to me (HS is good but very biased to complete beginners)

Yes, there's no excuse for not having fruit when you can keep bags of frozen berries in the freezer and prep it in 10 minutes. I usually do a big tub's worth and snack on it through the week. If I'm feeling very chef-y I add some spices. Usually cinnamon ;-)

Day 17 (lying on my back in the mud looking up at the wagon ;-)

1) complete 4 sets of wall push ups every other day (✔︎ 4 x 10 from 12" lower than previous height).

2) eat at least 5 different fruit/veg at least 5 days each week X (not even close. Had a Scotch Pie today for the first time in many years. I was a posh one from the local butcher, but still, not a veg in sight. Baked beans don't count, eh? Then coz still not really hungry toast & marmalade for tea. Yum. I can't be perfect all the time ;-) I *did* have an apple though so not a total washout.

3) drink a glass of water before every evening meal X didn't have proper tea.

4) meditate 5 minutes each day ✔︎ (will do later. To reflect on my shocking behaviour...oh, I had Maltesers too. The naughtiness never ended today)

 

Happy I've got 16 days in before blowing out. Back on that wagon tomorrow :-)

 

On the plus side, here's my local loch where I'll be starting some wild swimming in the spring...

You're allowed an off day once in a while :)

That picture is beautiful! Which loch is it? I really fancy wild swimming but always a bit apprehensive. 

Well done on the push ups!

Thank you :-)

 

It's Loch Ken (9 miles of lochy loveliness). I've mainly done wild swimming as jumping off a boat when I could (the sea, outer port at Dover, illicitly in clean canals etc). You've got a wetsuit on, so are pretty buoyant if that's what worries you? I'm going with a club so I'm not on my own which is what worries me till I get used to the location. Looking forward to it.

A swimming club sounds like a great idea. I'll have to investigate.....

 

There was a good programme on the other week on Radio Scotland:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0001zf2

She interviews a guy who did one wild swim a week round Scotland for a year. Worth a listen you're keen!

 

I think she mentioned a club - they didn't have a branch down my way so I didn't take details. I'm sure they had places in the central belt. They interviewed a couple of great women from Portobello too. That's near you! Go on, go on, go on....

Aaaaaand, we're back... day 18. Up out of the mud, approaching the wagon...

1) complete 4 sets of wall push ups every other day (✔︎ rest day)

2) eat at least 5 different fruit/veg at least 5 days each week (✔︎ apple, veg soup (onion, carrot, pea etc), cauliflower, lettuce, tomato, spinach)

3) drink a glass of water before every evening meal X totally forgot. In my defence, I prepped tea, then my OH cooked it while I painted the front room ceiling. So I wasn't exactly lounging around.

4) meditate 5 minutes each day ✔︎ Just about to do that before bed.

Solid accomplishments!!! We're all going to have a moment when we won't be able to keep up on the goal and the thing to know about that is just that one day won't force us down. Take that day, clean yourself off and get back up and rolling.
