A quick update post on how I went with my health and fitness plans for October .. here's what I planned to do ...
Back to running .. well, sort of .. I embarked on the run / walk method for October and I really enjoyed it. I managed to get out 2 - 3 times each week. Miss 9 joined me at least once per week and we really enjoy our run together. I even talked our neighbour into joining us, and she is having a great time! I may have created a new runner!
November's running goal is to keep up what I'm doing. I am gradually increasing the distance I have been doing and I'll keep doing this in November. Perfect base training for the new year!
October was going to be another sugar free month. Whilst I am far from perfect, I have done a pretty good job of staying on track. Of course I don't eat this way 100% of the time, but I'm definitely making sure that I don't over indulge. Making this into a habit is going to go a long way to beating the battle of indulging over the Christmas party / New Year season!
Has my body composition changed much in October? Possibly not but I've kept up my weight training once a week and I know that this helps keep me strong and maintaining my body.
It looks like I have dropped a little bit according to the scales but they are so unreliable.
I haven't taken any follow up measurements yet, not sure if I will just now .. I might wait another month.
Overall, I've been really happy with the way I'm going. I'm sticking to my plans and everything seems to be working. And I feel great and can keep going .. which is the most important thing for me!
Bring on November and the party season .. I can't wait for December!! But that's a whole new post about holidays to the USA to visit my sister!!
I hope everyone's plans are on track! I would love to hear how you are going!
Stay focused, Stay strong
