Rest for today, after 3 days of exercise: running (Fri, 10km), basketball (Sat, 2 hours) and muscle-building exercises (Sun, 60 push-ups/120 squats/160 sit-ups). Down to 75 kg from 82 on Apr-9 (starting point). Looking forward to my tuna salad for tonight's dinner and watching GoT yesterday's episode!
1 month and 5 days down the way, I have lost 6 of the total 10 kgs I wanted to lose, while having increased my levels of exercise (4-5 times a week I run 10km after doing push-ups, squats and sit-ups) and my body is starting to look substantially better. SlimKicker gave me the kick I needed, monitoring nutrition stats like Sugars and Carbs probably made a significant difference.
Back on track today after 3 days of a blistered foot (sole) recovery, run 9.7km/45min at 8.0 mph. Feeling great, let's hope my foot doesn't go bad again (I have a compeed patch on since Thursday, it should come off tomorrow)
Done my usual 10/45 (10km running in 45 minutes) after an hour of muscle-building exercises (40 push-ups, 80 squats and 120 sit-ups) today, had a banana right after the run and a tuna salad for a dinner. Tomorrow it 'll be a month since I joined slimkicker, I am halfway down my weight goal (have lost 5 of the total 10kg I wanted to lose), I have introduced regular exercise into my daily routine and I feel better than ever!
did 10,2km/45min jogging this evening, and a total of 12.8km walk/jog. In less than a month there has been a huge improvement on my stamina - exercise and healthy nutrition seem to pay off. On top of that, weight has dropped from 82kg to 77,5kg, counting 25 days on Slimkicker, with my goal set on 73kg. Take yourself for a jog - your body will thank you!
@konnak Hey how you doing ??
Doing fine, really busy these last few weeks. Though, I have managed to be 1 kg from my goal back in April (-10kgs), and to maintain a good level of exercise despite of the summer heat. I am planning to post on a success story as soon as I reach my target weight :-) Thanks for the concern, I hope you 're doing fine too, unfortunately can't find the time to scroll the inspiration feed...
Yea I'm good :) was just checking in to see if your good :) by the sounds of it your excellent ... And busy isn't always a bad thing :) .... I'm on track doing what I have to to get to my goals :)
@konnak SlimKicker is now back up, after being down for the past day. Our web host (Amazon) was having problems, but it's all fixed now. Because of the downtime, for the next 2 days, we're giving away +20 bonus points for every food you log. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
What changes did you make diet wise ?
I stay within the limits of the Nutrition page,limit fast food and sweets and select my dinner according to the level and type of exercise during the day. Logging food made me realize that I:
-ate too much bread and cheese (feta) for lunch
-had a HUGE daily sugar intake, even without sweets!
-I eat more salads, mostly tomato,cucumber and pepper salad with lunch and a salad for dinner three days a week(mostly tuna salad).
Bottomline,what worked for me was less carbs,less sugar,more exercise.
Kudos great job!!
Thank you both! I intend to lose the remaining 4 unwanted kgs by mid-June and then change goal to "reach optimal health", keeping exercise at the same levels. Swimming will give an extra boost ;-) I wish my progress inspires others to achieve their fitness goals as well.
Good gracious, you're fast. It's a dream of mine to finish 10/under 60.
Fantastic, i did half marathon in 1:56 so you are still better!!
I had a 5-min brisk walking break at 25-min of running though... I believe that if I run on a day without previous exercise I could do it without a break.
@Pari I don't think I could pull off such a distance in the same speed! I probably wouldn't even make it, I think the max I could do right now would be 15k. I would be thrilled to be able to even finish on a marathon (especially the classic marathon, being 2 hours from Athens :-))
That's a pretty nice pace on that 10.2K!
Thank you! Avg speed was 8.4 mph. It's the first time I manage to maintain >8mph for longer than 25 mins. Been running every second day for less than a month.
