Yesterday evening I was a bad girl, I took too much palmnut soup (made with palm fruit and consumed mostly in Africa). I knew I was going to pay for that decision so I wasn't surprised when I checked my weight this morning and the scale still read 100.5. Guess it means i will be taking lesser amounts of palmnut soup from now on.
Now, to the topic of discussion. I've read several articles that suggest that exercising twice daily is a very effective way of ensuring weight loss. My friend who happens to be a dietitian also suggested that since I love jumping rope, doing that twice daily in conjunction with resistance bands wasn't a bad idea. So I've decided to try that from today and see what happens by the end of the week. I however, will be variating my workouts to include going for walks or doing the treadmill in the evenings.
This morning I found out that I finished 1000 jumps in just 20 minutes; a huge achievement since a few months ago, it took me almost 45 minutes of panting to get there... Yayy! And, since I had to work out for thirty minutes, I added another 500 jumps making it a total of 1500 jumps this morning.
Diet-wise, I seem to be lacking my appetite this morning so I had a Diet Coke (I know that's bad!), and a small pita bread. After taking that, I decided to sip my usual green tea. Perhaps by lunch I will be able to consume the brown rice and vegetable sauce I prepared.
Now that I'm a lot wiser, I'll definitely have a tuna/chicken salad for dinner.
Hope your day is as good as I 'm hoping mine will be....
