This week I’ve been tired and stressed, but I’ve been doing better. Major issue is that my right hip and lower back are really sore. Stretching helps a bit but if it’s not cleared up after Christmas, I’m going to have to get a referral to a physiotherapist!
1) Do a plank a day of a minute or over (52)
Done: 30. Target: 43 Remaining: 22
So I’m still behind the target but I have done 2 a day for the last 3 days and I’m going to continue to do that.
2) Log 1820 fitness minutes (35 minutes a day)
Done: 1100. Target: 1470 Remaining: 720
I’ve been walking to more places and including that in my fitness totals, I’ve done the 35 minutes but I haven’t stepped this up.
3) Walk or run 260km (5km a day)
Done: 130. Target: 210 Remaining: 130
I’ve made this week’s target but not much more. I’m way behind and need to go for a couple of runs.
4) Do 1040 sit ups (20 a day)
Done: 590. Target: 840 Remaining: 450
Saturday to Tuesday, I met the daily target. Wednesday I did 10 more and for the rest of the week I’ve done 40. Only issue I really have with these is that I hate them and my hip hurts a bit.
5) Do my knee exercises and stretches 104 times (twice a day)
Done: 85. Target: 84 Remaining: 20
Still doing these. My knees and feet ache at the moment but I think it’s more to do with the cold (it was -1C this morning, in London!) than anything else.
6) Have 26 alcohol free days
Done: 17 Remaining: 9
I’ve been drinking on schoolnights, not good, however, I’ve been sticking to my units so I’m not going to beat myself up about it.
7) Eat 364 servings of fruit and vegetables (that’s 7 a day)
Done: 286. Target: 294 Remaining: 78
I’m eight servings behind target but 76 ahead of the recommended five a day. Being out for dinner means that sometimes it’s harder to hit seven. I do feel much better than I did last week though!
8) Be thankful every day for 52 days.
I’ve done this every day and as you can see if click onto the ‘Reasons to be Cheerful’ page
9) Be in bed at 10pm for 35 days.
Done: 26. Target: 30
I was really good at this in October, next week will be better.
