This is the first time I have managed to average 10 miles 16.2 km in the first week of March. I want to continue this average as I go along as that is the only way to accelerate my weight loss. As I said my weight loss had slowed down to 2kg a month or 0.5 kg a week. But with so much walking in the past four months where I average 10km per month the only way to increase my weight loss average I had to step up a few more notches and now I have decided to increase my monthly average to 16.1 km per month from a Monthly average of 10 km a month in the past.
Since I have already lost 8 kg from my past weight of 99.6 kg I feel much lighter and fitter my breathing has improved immensely and I move much faster than I used to. I am now able to run also during my walks and run for 2min before stopping and then I run again repeating the cycle slowing down when I need to catch my breath, but running is not an issue now and comes very naturally. As I go along I will increase the running time also, I am getting the runner high now and enjoying it.
The issue is that I need to give at least three and half hours every day if I want to achieve my goal as I do dumbness and yoga mat exercises with the 10-mile walk. That takes away a large chunk of my time which is alright for me as of now as my writing load is not much.
Just took my blood pressure which is normal 125/87 and my heart rate is 96 BPM which is good I will try to get that to 80 BPM through exercise. That said my mood is elated and my mental health has improved immensely. The hormones released when I jog give me a feeling go elation and I feel breezy it’s like a minty feeling on my skin. I never felt this way as I have never been much of a fitness fan as such, so this was a refreshing feeling. My waistline has also shrunk considerably now with all the walking and exercising.
Climbing steps is not a chore anymore and I am able to breeze through a flight of stairs now first I sued to wobble while climbing stairs now it’s easy. My posture has improved and my back is straighter I don’t slouch anymore and my body movements are much faster, my reflexes have improved, and feel fresh and light throughout the day. It’s amazing what fitness and exercise can do to your overall health and mental well-being. I urge everyone to go for it and at least walk and jog for an hour every day religiously, just add it to your routine. Chuck your cars and bike for a road cycle and do your daily chores by walking or biking.
My weight is 91.5 kg now and I feel much younger and sharper now the ever before. Some snaps of my luck thali for you to enjoy and ponder on how you will get fit.
