Day 50 - Happy Monday

Monday is a great day to turn over a new leaf and this morning I decided to do something about the lack of exercise and water.

I started my day by downing a 16 oz/470ml glass of H2O. Then I did the elliptical trainer for 30 minutes = 1.26 miles/2km = 3065 aerobic steps. Then I downed another 16 oz/470ml H2O.

I am very pleased with myself ... as, I'm sure, are my kidneys and colon. Now I just have to make sure that I have 16 oz/470ml H2O with each meal and I would have met ... even exceeded my minimum water requirements goal for the day.

My food has been PERFECT for 45 days, which means each day I've been eating three weighted and measured meals of protein, fruit, vegetables and fat with nothing in between those meals except sugarless gum (as below).

This week I want to bring my exercise and water up to scratch , meaning I want to exercise 5 days this week for 30 minutes at a time. I want to wear my pedometer to monitor my steps and I want to drink at least 64 oz/1.9 liters per day. I'll be blogging everyday this week to record how I'm doing.

Here's what I'm eating today:

32 oz /940ml H2O

180 g yogurt
120 g milk
1 apple
16 oz/470ml H2O

120 g fish
120 g beets
240 g salad
1 tbls dressing
16 oz/470ml H2O

60 g cheese
240 g courgette
360 g salad
1 tbls butter
2 tbls dressing
16 oz/470ml H2O

Exercise - 1/2 hour on the elliptical trainer
H2O -
80 ounces/2.36liters


  1. Go, Nona, GO! Perfect for 45 days??? I'm lucky to say I'm perfect for three in a row...

    Been sick for the last few days - don't want to get on the scale. I've been vascillating between being totally disinterested in food and ravenous. Now that I think about it, that might be the diabetes making itself heard.

  2. Good going on the exercise and water. I can't imagine being so discipled as you have been about the food. I fact, my eating plan is a rebellion against weighted, measured, point counted, exchanged tracked dieting. Just goes to show you that different plans work for different people. Keep up the good work!
