Yes so today is my birthday. Another year older, a little wiser, but still striving for ultimate health and fitness. Aside from the fact that I had to work all day I’ve had a good day and I’ve managed to maintain a level of restraint that is unprecedented on my birthday. Just two indulgences all day – a packet of mini cookies and a bottle of light beer. I had fruit this morning and a cross between flapjack and muffin bite. Nuts and fruit mid morning, lentils and plantain with large salad and dinner…well…. I had nothing in the house as I’m travelling tomorrow, but I had two of my favourite things… plantain and cashew nuts. I actually can’t believe that’s all I’ve eaten since like 2pm this afternoon. I guess I’ve been busy.
So how do I feel at the ripe old age of 39? Great! I am the fittest I’ve ever been except for my knee injury and this morning I managed to hold the plank for 2 minutes and 2 seconds!! Was a very long 2 minutes. But I have to just keep doing it whilst my legs are out of action.
This time tomorrow I’ll have food and drinks at my disposal…. I’m literally scared for what I might do…lol But I read up on intermittent fasting today. It seems like and interesting concept… possibly worth exploring. I think whilst I’m out of action I will have to experiment with the food to see what my body responds well to.
I’m sorry but I’m tired. I had loads of ideas earlier for this post… but now simply too tired to think. I will keep you updated on my travels for the next 10 days and food management. Night
