Week 3 – Exercise

So exercise.  Yeah.  It is tricky being regular with this. So we changed our thinking a little and it has helped.  Used to be concerned about how far we ran (we have a treadmill).  But have decided to concentrate on time instead and calories burnt.  I have discovered that when I walk (at 7km/h) uphill I burn nearly twice as many calories as when i run on a flat surface at 11km/h.  Pretty cool, but obviously I don’t go as far!  Exercise is addictive, totally addictive!

So cutting down on sugar is tough.  But we definitely did a pretty good job.  Daniel did much better than me.  After a couple of days of no sugar, i had a bite of brownie and the sugar hit me really fast and I felt a little sick actually.  That was just from one bite!  And then last night I ate a couple of meringues.  They were good!  And full of sugar.  But all in all, we have found ourselves not being too excited about eating sweet stuff and I can’t buy stuff with artificial preservatives and flavour in them anymore.  Funny how you can train your mind.  It seems that is the key to healthy eating.

    An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this
    onto a colleague who has been conducting a little research on this.

    found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for
    the meal!! But yeah, thanx for spending the time to talk about
    this issue here on your blog.
