Day 26

We went out for a drive around today. We’d hoped to go for a walk just it was too busy given the current situation so we ended up just coming home and I got my steps in, as usual, in the house!

I had to push myself to work out bit I took progress pictures and, although theres not much change, it is noticable from the profile view.

Regardless of the physical changes, I feel so much stronger and confident which I think is the main thing at the moment.

Day 25

I totally had a gaming day today and really had to force out my 3,500 steps! I did do it but it really is making me concerned for larger step counts.

Ah well, if I reach a step count that I’m having struggles getting to I’ll stay there for a while. But 4,000 should be achievable.

Day 24

Things are really starting to get easier and become a bit more natural. I no longer feel silly weighing my food though I have no idea how this would work when I have to travel for work.

I’m thinking of reducing the frequency of these TeamRH update posts down to once a week when I hit the 4 week mark. They’ve done the job I needed at keeping me on track but I now want to branch out into writing about my games too….

Plus I feel they’re getting shorter and lacking less content each day!!

Day 23

Despite this being categorised as a Team RH post (because it’s my daily update post) I don’t actually have too much to report!

Everything is feeling really good and since starting this I’ve definitely had better mental health, which is probably more related to the exercise than the eating.

I’m not finding it hard to stick to my food goals on most days, though I’m still generally terrible at the fibre and protein goals.

My steps are maybe not getting as much attention as they should and I think I could start to struggle once I get to 4,000. I’m already having to check regularly and make sure I try to get to certain points by lunch. But then I wonder if maybe that’s the point. Regularly spaced exercise may be more long term achievable than a load of steps in one go.

I’ve 200 left to do today so I’m going to hop to it!

Day 22

Today went super fast with being back at work and having a family quiz night. It also meant I had to really push to get those steps.

I’m proud of making sure I reached my goal, as odd a feeling that is. I also met my fibre goal and got half way on my protein so all-in-all a good day!

Day 21

I met my 3,500 goal today!

It’s going alright now I’m getting into the swing of things. My weight is staying around the same as it always has been but that is to be expected as I’ve not been reaching the steps I should be (and eating more!!)

I got some protein bars at the shops today so I’m looking forward to snacking on them during the week!

Today was spent with a lot of reading! I powered through The Well of Ascension by Brandon Sanderson and made a good way through The Hero of Ages.

Day 20

I upped my steps to 3,500 today. Technically I suppose it should be tomorrow with my whole 7-days then an increment but both my Fitbit and TeamHR run Monday to Monday and it was getting confusing.

So here we are!

It’s gone okay today and there’s not that much to report. I’ve found it hard to not snack but I don’t think I was hungry at all. I just wanted to eat.

Day 19

Today wasn’t a good food day at all. If I had my old allowance it would be fine but those extra 200 seem to be the difference some days!

I did my exercise though and I can still see improvements which I’m super happy about.

At the moment, days seem to be passing so quickly. Almost too quickly. I’ve lost track of where we are in lockdown and this is almost becoming normal.

Along with general household jobs I played a lot of Planet Zoo and Paths of Exile – my new found “clicky clicky” game.

I still have a fair few steps left to do though so I’m going to put on some TV and step away!

Day 18

I feel as though the weighing in every day and calorie tracking is starting to become more natural. I actually thought I might’ve forgot to step on the scales today because I no longer pay attention to the daily number!

The mindset of weekly trends gathered via daily data is beginning to make sense and even when I have what feels like a “fat day” by weekly trend doesnt support it (even if the daily number might). I can see how people could become obsessed with the daily number though and I’m thankful I am able forget about it.

It was the start of a 4-day weekend today. I met my daily steps and topped off my water thanks to a bit of gardening while the weather was still nice.

I noticed I had my TeamRH app still set to 10,000 daily steps which was giving me the wrong food target. I lowered that to 5,000 as that’s closest to my current step rate and I’ll increase it again when 10,000 is more within range.

All in all, today was a happy day and I’m sure Planet Zoo had some part to play in that!

Day 17

On a completely, non-TeamRH related event, I’m really enjoying Code Realize ~Guardian of Rebirth~. I might write some posts about it if the mood strikes me over the weekend.

Those of you still around that were here previously for that kind of content might get it again!

Back on my say update, I’ve not met any goals yet but I’ve still the entire evening to go and I feel confident I can hit them.

I’m definitely feeling stronger when it comes to my weights, though I’ve still a long to go. Interesting my leg was better today so maybe the lack of walking was hindering the post cramp healing.
