we only have 9 days left in the month of January so if you are doing the walking challenge and have set a goal, and need to reach it you have only 9 days left to do that walking.
However I can't talk, as I haven't even got 70 miles in yet. Between the rain, freezing rain, sleet, snow and bitter cold temperatures I have missed a lot of walking this month. Mind you I can't only blame the weather as we have had some nice days in amongst those days where I just couldn't be bothered to go walking. I did manage to get seven miles walked today as it wasn't as cold. I walked twice once for 60 minutes and once for 51 minutes.
I am hoping to move a couple more pounds of weight also by the end of the month, but I am not holding my breath with that 😊 I have lost four pounds so far this month, so I am happy with that.
I have more or less cut out milk from my diet, just have it in coffee when I am out. I did make cauliflower with cheese sauce the other night for supper and blew up like a balloon afterwards, However it won't stop me eating it every now and then. I have switched to lactose free yogurts, and almond milk if I have cereal that needs milk. Not loving that almond milk, but it's only half a cup with a cup of cereal, so it won't kill me. I don't eat too many eggs and they don't seem to bother me. Cheese I don't eat too much off but did have the most gorgeous chicken and goat cheese panini at a restaurant the other week, gosh it was good.
Stopped having hummus and then had some the other day and again got a bad stomach from that; its the garlic in it. So I am trying to avoid garlic and for the most part onions, but do have onions in recipes every now and then. Changing the my diet is a work in progress, but I am incorporating some of the suggestions from the FODMAP plan.
I have developed an aversion to the treadmill??? No idea why, so I need to get back into the habit of hopping on it. Even if its for just 30 minutes while the news is on. I set the speed at 3 mph, so I can walk a mile and a half in 30 minutes, which over 9 days will be another 13 and a half miles to my total. So I may just make my 100 mile goal for the month yet!!
By the way I am more than capable of walking at least 120 miles a month, I just need that nudge!!! So please nudge away.............
