- Upping the intensity
of my POMs
Well, I did manage that. I did 2 lots of personal training, dancing, played golf twice and managed a couple of hilly dogs walks, one carrying a toddler on my back. I made sure that all my morning POMs included the field walk which is a steep uphill of 20/25 minutes rather than just nipping round the block. I also went for longer and brisker walks at lunchtimes on working days and took the stairs every single time.
- Monitoring my carb
intake more closely
Hmmm. To be fair to me (and I'm always as fair to me as I can manage!) I DID look up several items and avoid a few which were particularly high in carb content. The trouble is, I didn't keep an accurate running total each day so several days were over the limit by an accumulation of relatively modest carb items. All those 18gs add up. Especially when ONE medium apple contains 18gs of carb!!
I also had 2 days where I was WAY over the limit. One as a result of too much booze (3 glasses of red wine and 3 malt whiskies) and one as result of sloppy planning and non-existent willpower causing me to have 2 pints
of bitter and 4 slices of bread!!
- Reducing (again) my
Last week I had 6 glasses of red wine (pub small measures), 2 pints of bitter and 3 malt whiskies. Could do better.
- No booze apart from on Saturday at the wedding we're going to (and even there, don't drink excessively just for the sake of it!).
- Keep an approximate running total of carbs each day (apart from on Saturday). Blog it if you're posting on that day!
- Go for a run on Thursday.
