Whilst on this holiday I feel that I have done ok with my eating. There is always room for improvement though. I feel that even though I am eating healthy I will not lose much weight because I have done absolutely no exercise.
I was planning to swim lengths of the pool. This pool you swim 2 strokes and you are at the other end. I would need to do a thousand lengths to make it beneficial.
Jenny told me before I left for my holiday that if I walk, cycle, swim or do any kind of activity I am not to class it as exercise but movement. Which means that I can’t eat extra food for doing some activities.
I have had one day that I walked 15000 steps, and I have been cycling. Our villa is on a hill and the nearest village is 3 miles away. We cycled down to the village and I don’t think I had to turn the peddles round once. I could really pick up speed all the way down. I loved it. That to me is what cycling is all about! However I have learnt that what goes up must come down and vice versa.
3 miles cycling solely up hill is a killer especially in a 35 degree heat. I felt like everything around me was melting
I had to stop for a drink a few times but I am very happy that I did it. I wasn’t sure I could do it as it was a lot steeper than I have done before. The heat got to me a little but I didn’t overheat like I normally do.
