Today was a good day, I went to meet a friend for a coffee (I had a sparkling water and green tea, which makes a change from a cappuccino and a cake!) and talked to him about his journey from a life of excess to one of control and healthiness. He provided some good advice which I am certainly going to take. In the evening I went for a walk around the Botanical Gardens in Almaty with Raushana, something I wouldn’t have done before as I would have been in the pub! It was a great way to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city as well as the stress of work and writing my MBA thesis. I downloaded an app for my iPhone called Endomondo, it uses GPS to track you as you exercise, I found this useful as I struggle to judge distances accurately, just ask my golfing buddies! I walked a total of 6.5 miles and I felt as though I could have walked another 2/3 more which was great. I had less back pain than I usually do and I attribute this to all the vitamins and minerals that I am consuming on this juice diet. I have never eaten anywhere near the amount of fruit and veg in my life as I have this past week!
