Hmmm - interesting one!
I didn’t actually do this properly yesterday but I did kind of run through it before I went to bed. I basically just feel achey from my walk on Sunday
Join a club or activity that you’ll actually enjoy.
I’m already involved in a few things. I do a belly dance class on Tuesdays (although it was cancelled last night, which my aching bones appreciated) and I’ve got quite a lot of events and workshops coming up at weekends over the summer. I volunteer for the outreach team of a soup kitchen on Saturdays. I haven’t been to yoga class for a while as they changed the time, I’d like to try and get back to that though as I have fallen out of the habit of doing yoga at home and my fitness has suffered for it.
There’s a couple of groups I’d like to join (local allotments and a woodland maintenance group) but before I start anything new I have to pick my MSc up again and finally get that done!
I love the body scan! I did a clinical trial at our medical school, and it was included. You check in, head to toe, and breathe into all the places. Is there pain? NO! Whoo Hoo, me!
Ha Ha Ha…a Club? How about the Clean Plate Club? That’s my kind of club! Hand weights, and trail running, if we must…
I Love the soup kitchen! The church that does it here is 54 miles, but I can bring heathen vegan soup!
Holy shit you are involved in a lot of great stuff already! Joining a club is not for me - I am not terribly social as a person though I do volunteer so I can check this off, can I? Or should it be additive - should I be doing something more?
You are amazing already! This is a club, too!
I’ve stopped cooking for the soup kitchen for now as I was getting super stressed about it. But when I did, I always cooked veggie packed meals. Everyone wants meat and grease but I think they appreciated the vitamins really…
@Peace12 the important bit is things that you actually enjoy. I’m using things I already do to tick this off because if I add something else on to my plate now I know it will not be good for me. If you really want to add something though then why not join me on the Hiking Club thread
And if all else fails there’s always the clean plate club, which is one I can absolutely get behind, even if it doesn’t quite fit with the goals of this thread
Oh that’s a brilliant idea! I adore walking and average 5 miles a day with my dogs.
Eat only healthy and natural good, drink lots of water.
I had a complete overload on biscuits at work yesterday so today I commit to no snacking! For breakfast I have porridge with berries, a salad with an egg for lunch, then don’t know for dinner… Maybe some cheese after. Should be at least 8 portions of fruit and veg in total though.
I always drink plenty of tea, but not water. I have been having a glass of water when I wake up. I am going to a meeting this morning and will ask for water instead of tea. And I will have a glass of water with my dinner.
Edit: Got my shit together and did yoga this morning. Am a beacon of health and vitality
This one looks great @siand - I’m a healthy eater mostly so I should nail this one. Can herbal tea count as water?
I basically eat healthy but then biscuits…
That’s what I call a balanced diet . Bought myself a Fitbit (should arrive today) to celebrate my first 100 days (everything after three days was a first for me but 100 feels awesome). It will be useful for my training for the hike challenge. I’m really enjoying this thread @siand - thanks for starting it!
Yes. I am all over this idea. Tomorrow!
Triple digits is definitely worth celebrating! ♀ And a Fitbit seems like a great way to spend some of that sober money.
I tend to walk 2 - 4 miles on work days depending on what time I get home (we have a dog walker come in through the day). Now it’s getting lighter I will try to make it 4 more often. The more the merrier on the hiking club
My plans to drink water didn’t really go to plan. I forgot I had booked my meeting this morning in my favourite cafe (incredible loose leaf tea selection!). But I did have a glass of water this morning and had a bottle of soda stream water this evening. Plus lots of tea. Food wise, my Mum came round for dinner and bought chocolate chip cookies which I resisted. Did eat rather a lot of cheese though.
I was pretty lousy at the water drinking too @siand - lots of tea - normal and herbal. Ate healthy though. Right - now I’ve got my Fitbit on (which I am not obsessed with at all ) what am I doing today ?
Choose to walk or cycle instead of going by car or bus.
I have been doing this as much as possible anyway, will go for a car free day today! Although to be honest I don’t have much planned where I would need to take the car. I will try for a car free weekend!
Had a bit of a lie in this morning @Peace12 but there you go, let us know how many steps you clock up today!
I just ordered some nice tea from Brew Tea, including a tea pot for loose leaf. English Breakfast, Lemon and Ginger and Fruit Punch. Yum!
