The Mommy Milkshake Run 2016 by Mommy Mundo

The last race I ran was probably six or seven years ago. At my age now (going 42 in a few months), I feel that I need to get back into some form of fitness routine. Then I got the email inviting me to join this year’s Mommy Milkshake Run. I felt that it will be perfect to ease me back into running.

Getting back in shape

After taking a gym-break for… *counts fingers*… eight (!!!) friggin’ months, I realize I gained back almost all the pounds I lost in the past three years. Boo me.

But, as I always tell myself, it is never too late to start again.

So I am picking up from where I left off.

First things first: diet. I am doing away with rice for the whole month of May. It’s my fourth day today, and so far so good!

Next step: get back into the groove. It’s too hot for running these summer days. So I am thinking of getting a yoga mat and putting on some yoga pants for home workout like the circuit training I did a few weeks back.

Wish me luck, friends!

To Atkins or not to Atkins?

So I gained  a  few pounds since I stopped going to the gym late last year. Though I am still within normal limits for my height, I am dangerously standing on a thin line. Two or three more pounds and I will be officially overweight (again!).

I would like to attempt a low-carb diet. My family has been on brown rice for a couple of years now… But that is the only good thing going on with us diet-wise. We’re back to regularly consuming chips again. Bad, bad, bad! (And it’s mostly my bad!)

The last time I was on a low-carb diet was in 2007 when I started losing weight after giving birth to Nate. I quickly lost the pounds, but I was also religiously working out back then. I’d like to attempt that again. I am currently reading up on Atkins Diet at a low carb forum. Similar to the South Beach Diet, the Atkins Diet has a strict two-week induction period. During this time, I am not allowed to eat starchy, carb-laden food. The Atkins Diet says:

Eat absolutely no fruit, bread, pasta, grains, starchy vegetables or dairy products other than cheese, cream or butter. Do not eat nuts or seeds in the first two weeks. Foods that combine protein and carbohydrates, such as chickpeas, kidney beans and other legumes, are not permitted at this time.

I wonder if I can do this… Meanwhile, I think I should start reviewing our grocery list.
