Workout or dinner…

One of my goals to reach this week is to do more exercise. Does it count if I’ve been running, well not literally running, but walked different places in the city? After work, where was quite busy day, I needed to go to the about 5 stores today and I was home just before six. I was so hungry and so tired that I just couldn’t go to walk. Well tomorrow I’ll go to my friends cottage for two nights and there’s lot to do after winter.

But back to today. So I decided to make dinner to myself. I was just bought some chicken breasts and vegetables. I seasoned chicken breasts with Santa Maria’s Mango Curry, pepper and vegetable oil. I pre-heated the oven to 200°C (392°F) and roasted them about 30 minutes.

I also made huge salad me to eat right today and for tomorrows lunch to work. I put there two different kind of lettuce, some cucumber (surprise, surprise!), some bell pepper, two spring onions, some green grapes and three peaches.

I just joined a month ago to Tehy. It’s union of Health and Social Care Professionals and I got gift card in a bookstore for joining. That was just perfect because I’ve been planning to by a cookbook about healthy foods. Today I bought two, or one was kind of free because of the gift card. 

Terveellistä ruokaa vartissa by Pirjo Saarnia is oblivious in Finnish and its translates: Healthy food in 15 minutes. There’s two parts in the book. The first part is about food: which food is healthy, why it’s healthy, why food is important at all. The second part is about recipes and suggestions what people should have in they pantry, refrigeration or freezer. I’ve read one of her books last fall concerning about nutrition. I liked her writing style and she had good everyday examples in there.

The other book is Gordon Ramsay’s Healthy Appetite which contain recipes from breakfast to dessert. Some of the recipes looks quite simple and some of them aren’t but I attempt to try most of them.

Have to go to bed now because I have to get up in six hours. Good night, don’t let the bed bugs bite.

I’m So Excited

This new life is great. I love it.

 

My plan for today was wake up early, eat good breakfast and do some exercise.

 

But I didn’t woke up until 10.30 am. Oh well, it’s was still morning though. Wasn’t it? I ate sturdy breakfast including two sandwiches and oatmeal, drank raspberry juice. Yes, that went like I’d planned. Then I left to do some sports. Beginning of the week I decided I want to go to swimming. So I did today. I swam 1,5 km (0,9 miles). Also I walked 3 km (1,9 miles). Wohoo. I felt so good afterwards. It always feels good after you’ve done some exercise. =)

 

After I got home I ate spaghetti with minced meat sauce. I think it was quite healthy though spaghetti wasn’t whole wheat. Sauce was healthy ‘cos besides minced meat there was carrots, onions and parsnips. Before bedtime I ate two sandwiches again.

 

I know that I should eat regularly while losing weight. In fact everybody should eat regularly to gain or to remain their ideal weight. I also know you should eat about 4 to 5 times a day. You should have a good breakfast, ‘cos it’s most important meal in day. I’ve read at breakfast should contain good amount of protein ‘cos it adds basal metabolism. It’s important increase your basal metabolism while you’re losing weight. Now I’m just writing about theory. I could do one or two posts just about theory regarding healthy eating and living. You shouldn’t forgot eat lunch, some healthy snack, dinner and healthy evening snack. I promise I would do something about my eating habits. This was just day 1.

 

And I’m so excited about this blog. I thought about this blog while swimming. I noticed swimming is also good for your mind. ‘cos you have time to think everything while you just swim. I came up with loads of ideas to put in here. So I think I keep writing. This is fun. Though, I’m little bummed out ‘cos I can’t use this wordpress as good as I’d wanted to. But I’m learning. So bear with me.

 

I’m off to bed now. Trying to write less confusing text tomorrow.
