Hi there and welcome to my Health and Exercise Monthly update, though I think I should change the name to …Quarterly or six monthly update because my last update was around August time and my last actual exercise was around June time. Life has a funny way of throwing curve balls which sometimes we can not seem to catch no matter what we try.
As mentioned has not really done any exercise so my weight updates are fairly the same though I may have put on a pound or two. One major change for me has the levels of stress at work has increased and also I have forgone my daily smoothie drinks which, because have been so busy I had not even noticed. I am one person who forgets to eat and when I do remember to eat I binge eat which is not healthy in any respect. My body has now adopted the art of when she eats we have to eat lots because we are not sure when she will remember to eat again, with this body mindset it is hard to lose weight until I condition myself again. I am not good with eating and snacking, me snacking can turn from healthy to unhealthy because even healthy foods should be eaten in moderation and not as if it is my last meal.
People say exercising is good for PMS but for the life of me I can not seem to hack it, if it really helped me big time I would be doing it daily but for me all logic goes out the window and I am screaming bloody murder. The only exercise that has worked for me during this time is walking but with the lovely 🙁 British weather that we have this can not be done all the time so for when the weather is horrid and I don’t want to scare my neighbours down stairs for jumping up and down I have been using this Mini TENS machine to help relieve the pain of periods. I had never heard of this product until it was sent to me for review and I will honestly say though I am loving it I did not think it would do anything for me apart from electrocute me. I am a wary person when it comes to using machines on my body that have electrodes of some sort and until I used it I was completely freaked. Assembly the device was super easy, I just had to insert the battery and attach the stud pads. Once this was done, I choose my program (10 to choose from) and intensity (16 to choose from) and I was set. Though wary upon wearing it, I started to feel the vibrations which tickled but then my period pain started to disappear and I couldn’t be more relieved. This month I am using it for the second time and loving it, I have not worn it out in public yet but it is discreet enough and the vibrations are not as loud as the ones of mobile phones. The mini TENs machine is currently on sale for £15.95 which is reasonable compared to how many pain killers I buy on a monthly basis and it has quicker effects than painkillers.
Back to the post, I have not lost but probably gained some more pounds since my last stats review.
I still have a while to go before my ideal weight of 60-65kg but I will work on it. Probably need to do some exercise now before christmas as I need space for the turkey and the cake.
How you doing on your weight loss journey?
