Since I have started being a bit more conscious about my health , I have become more and more regular in my physical exercises , I eat healthier and avoid junk food and sugar.
From exercising standpoint , I do not follow any set pattern yet , I have been swimming couple of times , played a bit of football , went for a short jungle walk and Gymming a few time.[contextly_sidebar id=”TDY6uLqHrmulgyn1X15qUxAsD0wNektY”]
To be frank, I am horrible in most of these things at the moment, I can hardly run 200 meters , cannot swim more than 15 meters without a break and get tired playing football way too early . I initially thought it was mainly my stamina, but on closer examination I believe it is more to do with my Leg Piece err Legs .
I stop running because my legs pain and stop swimming because my legs just do not have the stamina and are pretty prone to cramps . Hence my next target is to do something about these weak legs of mine , perhaps some strength exercises exclusively for legs and some more stretching .
Not to mention a lot of water. I recently visited my office physiotherapists after I suffered a small muscle injury/cramp (where else? in my Leg) , after hearing about how my legs get cramped and finding out that I barely had 2 litres of water each day , he said “You deserve it” .
It’s not a nice feeling when your doctor tells you that you deserve pain 🙂 .
Nevertheless, I am now on a 3 litre per day minimum plan .I start my day with fruits , have almonds when I feel hungry during the day and probably middle of night and eat all my meals . I do not eat till I feel super full and rather stop when I feel I have eaten enough , even though my stomach can accommodate a little more.
Results: Yes I do feel better and some people around me also feel that I look slimmer/weaker 🙂 , but that is just perception. Will know the truth soon
