Winner – 1 in a Row – Alcohol Free Day

AFD

Well, made it! One in a row for an AFD (Alcohol Free Day). Even took a bottle of wine to the kid’s place for dinner – wasn’t opened!

And, just to be clear, I am not anti-alcohol. Love the stuff but I think it’s holding me back a bit in the weight loss department.

So, here we go for two in a row!

parkrun

Also, in parkrun news, had a good run today. Ran 5km in 25.34, which is the fastest for a while – not my fastest but they seem to be reserved for cooler weather. Had a good running partner (unofficial) who kept the pace up (thanks Belinda!) and she was thankful someone was pushing her! Win!

VO2 Max

Also the VO2 Max increased to 49 so that was nice. 

Have an awesome weekend!

One in a Row – Getting Specific

It’s 2017 and I need to lose some weight. I’m 86kgs and need to be close to 78… and stay there.

I need to move more – actually scratch that, I think I move enough.

I’m getting to average 100+ km per month in running. Yes it could be more but it’s a helluva lot more than it was and it’s pretty consistent. Even today I’ll run 10km home after work before heading out for dinner at the kid’s.

No, what I need to do is eat better. Actually, scratch that too, I eat reasonably well. It could be better but most of my meals are veggies, meat, chicken, salmon. I drink 2.5 litres of water per day.

What I need to do is drink less alcohol. I drink probably 3 glasses of red at night. Should be 2 according to medical authorities, could be less.

I usually drink with dinner then one or two with some TV.

So let’s try for less alcohol. No alcohol today. Even at dinner. Just for today to see if I can do “one in a row!”
