Nutrition., Exercise and keeping healthy

I have to admit that although I've done exercise classes for years my heart was never fully in it until I had a stroke.

 

I hate to admit this,. but I was consuming way too much red wine and like everyone in denial. assumed all the dog walking I do was enough to reverse that over indulgence.

 

Since last October I am 42llbs lighter and have a good level of energy for a stroke survivor- its not that brilliant but I try to manage my energy by pacing myself,. and these days drinking is a rarity.

I started swimming and now,. after originally doing 1 session a week,. am swimming 1/4 mile every week. I do spinning classes and a class focussed on "bums,.tums and thighs."

 

I am quite surprised,. but starting in a small way and building slowly has paid dividends.

 

Food?

 

I took advice and eat pretty much the same as before, but smaller portions.,

 

This weekend I am attempting a Juice detox for three days. I believe this will cleanse my colon., and also release more energy as it eliminates toxins from the system.

 

My efforts are still piecemeal I make my own Banana and peanut butter smoothies (pure protein and nutrition),. try to eat salad with every evening meal,.and moreover try not to be a complete bore over the nutrition thing.

 

I will blog the juice detox- and hope to be a fresh faced,. glowing stick insect by Tuesday!
