13th January

meal 1: 5 bananas (medium size) and applie juice smoothie
meal 2: quinoa and passionfruit fruit pot sort of thing with soy yoghurt and a green salad (spinach, lettuce, kale, cucumber, bell petter, edame with some rice cake sushi style thing)
meal 3: Rice with Moong Dall and steamed veggies (carrots and borcolli)
Snacks: 3 more bananas and 3 apricots

Jogging - 1 hour (again no distance as I took a new route so not sure) Need to get a pedometer or one of those counting things!

14th January

meal 1: NO BANANAS IN THE HOUSE!!! Had apple juice mixed with spirulina and wheatgrass powder. and Mug of rice milk a bit later.
meal 2: Black beans, rice and steamed veggies
meal 3: Rice with peas and tofu curry
Snacks: 5 apricots, 3 oranges, dehydrated kale chips and vita coco (coconut water)

NO jogging today, went for a run (much faster pace), around 5km and then a 3km brisk walk to slow down. press ups (30 normal ones) and then fist and diamond shape ones (15).

Tried to do pull ups in the park today (using the monkey bar rings), woah, can barely do one! Any tips on improving that aspect? Guessing more free weights on the arms and press ups?

23rd
5km run

24th
3km run

I have signed up to a 5k race, 10k race and the London 1/2 marathon (well registered my interest for it)
Hopefully I will have more time to exercise more from next week onwards as I am currently in the process of moving roles at work so been in the office way too long, any others balance a corporate work and time for exercise... Can be done I know very easily, but just seeing if theres any tips I may have overlooked... Thanks!

28th - Football match, played 94 minutes (covered approx 6/6.5km) and won the match (2 assists) 2-1!

29th - Blisters on my foot from my new football boots!! Decided to do 1 hour of weight training/ press ups.

Some health statistics, weight has gone up 1.5kg in mostly muscle! and body fat percentage was 9.1% !!! So happy! Also a friend who hasnt seen me in a few months said i seem to be getting younger every time he sees me :)

30th
7km run, and stairs (300 steps, much harder than i thought!!)

31st - LAST DAY!!!
5km bike ride and stairs again, but this time 400 steps!

It was a great month of training, having to write down what I did was incredibly beneficial - it made me want to do more exercise. I will continue to keep a trainiing journal on MS Excel and maybe even start my own blog! Let the good times begin :D
