Back from the Doc

Back from the holistic doc with an appointment for a Naturopath to help me map out an eating plan to help with keeping my system alkaline, detoxed and losing weight. She is away for a couple of weeks so appointment is not until Mon 4 March. Until then I will just keep doing what I am doing. Today I feel the best I have felt since I took the medication a couple of weeks ago. I have walked two kms yesterday and today and plan to keep doing that until it is easy and then increase the kms and the intensity. Also might pay a visit to the gym and do some light weights one day this week. Anyway just a quick one for now - I'll report back at the end of the week to let you know how I am going in the exercise department.

Home again but sick

Here I am again. Back from beautiful Hawaii but with a very unhappy tum. I could feel a cold/flu coming on and took some medication to try and keep it away and it was all downhill from there. Yesterday was the first day I felt almost normal and had a Zarrafas coffee which went down OK. However I had one this morning and not so good so back to the ginger or green tea. Only one good side effect - I actually weigh less now than before the holiday and don't plan to put it back on. Going to ask my holistic doctor for some sort of eating plan when I go on Saturday.

I went for my first decent walk this morning - about 2kms but I struggled with the hill up to the coffee shop. Will try and extend it each day until I can do 5kms comfortably and then perhaps add some jogging.

Anyway that's it from me. I'll report back after doctor on Saturday.
