The third milestone is here and I feel pretty happy with my efforts made for fitness in October. I managed to stick to a daily meditation and gratitude journaling routine which is something I had been struggling with a long time. I’m not focusing on the results from this routine at the moment. I am focusing on doing it consistently to make it a habit so that I can reap it’s benefits in the long term. My running schedule took a hit this month, I was pretty lazy. I have slept through the alarms each week and was pretty disappointed with myself. I tried to make up for it last weekend and was extremely happy to push my limits for a 7.7 km run on Saturday followed up by a 10 km run on Sunday. My goal is to be consistent with my running schedule in November.
Here are my achievements for this month :-
Starting weight (10th August) : 62.9 kgs
Milestone 1 (31st August) : 62.5 kgs (Lost 0.4 kgs)
Milestone 2 (1st October) : 61.4 kgs (Lost 1.1 kgs)
Milestone 3 (2nd November) : 60.5 kgs (Lost 0.9 kgs)
I have been regular with my HIIT workouts/skipping routine during the weekdays however slacked off during the weekends.
I tweaked up my meditation routine to do it first thing after I wake up in the morning. This has worked wonders for me as I haven’t skipped it even once for the past 25 days. I currently have a 25 day streak on Headspace and that makes me very happy.
Although I ordered takeaways on many occasions, I am pretty satisfied with my food habits this month. Ever since I started meditation, I’ve noticed a slight decline in my food cravings and mindless eating habits which is great! My water intake has been up to the mark as well.
Key achievements :
- Ran twice outdoors, 7.68 kms in 52.38 mins on 31st October and 10.14 kms in 1.11.46 hrs on 1st November.
Goals for Milestone 4 (30th November):-
- Workout everyday
- No refined sugar
- Limited cheat meals (Fried, processed food)
- Rope skip every evening at least 200 times
- Attempt 10 push ups
- Run 5 kms on Saturday, 10 kms on Sunday every week
- Improve my running pace, 5 kms under 30 mins and 10 kms under 65 mins
See you until the next milestone!!
