Jan 31 2012: Where Did January Go?

4am wake-up today. Was in bed not long after 10pm last night, so no surprise I was awake early! Cooler (18 degrees) and windy out this morning.

Food:
Breakfast: 1 cup of cereal (Just Right), skim milk (before walk)
After Walk: 1 slice dry wholemeal toast with vegemite
Snack for mid-morning and mid-afternoon: ‘Nuts n More’ 80g tub (Cashew nuts, almond kernel, Pepitas, Sunflower seeds, sultanas)
Lunch: 6 pieces of sushi, fruit salad
Dinner: Salad, corn on cob, marinated skinless chicken pieces

Drink:
Plain, filtered water: 3000ml
1 long macchiato, 2 sugars
1 glass skim milk (200ml)

Activity:
Usual walk with dog, completed in 16m 01s
Did the bus/train thing again and walked across town
Couple of walks down from level 8
Big walk around town at lunchtime
Total steps over 10,500

Physical, Mood etc.:
4am – mood excellent, got out of bed with no effort and looking forward to the walk.
7:30am – noticed that I am walking faster generally, perhaps even a little spring in the step! ALso noticed how the enthusiasm seems to breed more enthusiasm – I’m even thinking things like “one day I’ll be able to cycle to work”.
Was in excellent spirit at lunchtime – think the snacking helped.
Evening, ready for bed 🙂

Notes:
I picked up the 80g tub of “Nuts n More” after seeing them while walking through town. Seemed like a decent option for the mid morning and afternoon snacks.
