Well, no loss, but no gain either. which I guess is a good thing…also, still under 200 pounds, woo. this week I’m going to be more active. going to the gym today, swimming tomorrow morning, and gym again later in the week.

my gym partner’s friend suggested doing 5k  runs and eating little and often as a sure way of losing weight. he said to do 5k without fail, even if you have to stop and walk to catch your breath (which I undoubtedly will have to) so I’m going to try 5k today in the gym.  whether that goes well or not we shall see.

I didn’t loose anything because yesterday I may have had a little pig out, Saturday I didn’t have a very healthy dinner – at all- and Friday night I was drinking. maybe if I had eaten sensibly over the weekend I would have lost a little. Weekends tend to be my downfall, there aren’t so many watchful eyes seeing what I’m eating. in a way that is a good thing because it gives me a break, however I need to learn to control it so that it doesn’t spiral into me binge-eating on everything unhealthy within a 200 meter radius.

Its good to know I’ve lost half of what I put on last week. a little annoyed at myself that I didn’t hit this months target. but hey ho, maybe next month. at least I still lost something. 🙂

Gym-ing today, seem to be getting back into going which is good. should boost some weight loss (I hope!) as well as raise my fitness. will be running again today, going to go for half a kilometre again, but maybe more if I feel ok while running. Eep.

I would like to stay below 200pounds…that would be an achievement within itself.

Enough of me babbling, I have assignments to do. 😐

Running

So I was at the gym on monday… (for the first time in a while) and I decided to put into action the plan to attempt to run.

This plan has slowly wriggled its way into my brain because of my housemate who has been training to do runs and whatnot… honestly ive aways wanted to be able to run, but being overweight and asthmatic and not really enjoying it before has kind of held me back, alot.

The plan formulated slowly into, lets start out really small. I am able to run for the bus when I need to, I get out of breath, but thats more, trying to get there as fast as I can before the bus goes rather than jogging along at my own pace. so, I decided to start with half a kilometer. see if I can run that, then gradually run for longer and then faster etc…

After being on the cross trainer for half an hour I went to the treadmill, jumped on, and ran. for half a kilometer in 4 minutes 17 seconds. I did it, (big woo 😀 ) but was out of breath and my calves and ankles hurt. (obviously I stretched out after, not doing so = ouchies)

I think my body isn’t used to running, or exercising in general, which is why my legs hurt so much. I’m hoping to continue running and run for longer periods of time, and maybe eventually run outside… big scary outside world…

If this goes well, I’ll think about joining my housemate in applying to runs and actually achieve something through exercise…big scary thought.

Gutted much? . . . weird that  I put on so much, I haven’t had much of an appetite this week, but I guess I must have overcompensated for that by making sure I did eat. plus chicken kebab and cake when I visited home (a belated birthday thing) probably really didn’t help.

I did weigh in after breakfast this morning, usually I do it before, but I know a bowl of cereal wouldn’t account for so much.

This week’s plan is to stick to normal meals and not to pig out. wish me luck.
