Weigh in Wednesday

Well, it’s been an eventful week. I’ve been in hospital with appendicitis and had surgery to take out my appendix.

This, of course, has completely blown any idea of running my Race for Life 5k out of the water 😦 booo. I could still walk it if I’m recovered enough…I’ll have to have a think about that.

Anyhow, here’s this week’s weigh in:

Last weigh in: 237.6 pounds
Today’s weigh in: 230 pounds
To Lose for June Goal: 31 pounds

Well…I was not expecting to lose so much this week. At all. That blindsided me! Must have been my wacky appetite in the hospital (also, not being allowed to eat before surgery, which kept getting delayed!). I’m also hoping this is all of the bloated-pastry-belly from France disappearing!

Exercise-wise I’m going to be very limited this week, until I heal up I won’t be able to do much at all. I’ll have to really watch my eating to compensate!

Goals for next week
Weight: 223 pounds
Exercise: Go on 2 short walks

Weigh In Wednesday

Happy Wednesday!

After a very busy 3 weeks I’m back to my normal weigh in schedule (yaay)

Okay, here we go:

Last weigh in: 234.6 pounds
After Ben Nevis weight: 239 pounds
Today’s weigh in: 237.6 pounds
To lose for June goal: 38.6 pounds

Well, it doesn’t look good, but at least I’ve lost something after being in Scotland! I was surprised that I had bearing in mind I was in France last week – Aaall the pastries!

I’m tracking my food and measuring out my portions better – instead of guessing how much rice or pasta, I measure out a portion of it. This is helping me to not overeat without realising!

Exercise-wise, as I mentioned yesterday I’m throwing myself into running again to prepare for my Race For Life 5k. I want to combine this with some body weight exercises to build some strength – I’m going to be planning this out for the next 3 weeks later today.

I’m feeling positive, and looking forward to shifting some of this flubber!

Next Weeks Goal: 233 pounds

Runday Monday (Kinda!)

I brought my running gear into work with me on Monday, and after work I headed over to Battersea Park.

I had a backpack with all of my clothes, water, and tablet in it on my back. I’ve never ran with a pack on my back before so I found it quite difficult!

I ended up walking most of the route, I had too many issues all at once…

Running was too hard; my shoes were rubbing; the backpack unbalanced me; my earphones kept falling out; and I had indigestion.

It was not the most comfortable run I have ever done…

Distance: 2.6k

Time: 40 minutes

At this rate I’ll be completing the 5k in 1 hour 20 minutes. Not particularly good at all! I only have 3 weeks left until the run, so I’m kicking myself up the bottom and pushing myself into training.

On the plus side ‘Zombies, Run!’ episode 2 was good, I’m still enjoying that and am looking forward to continuing with it!

I’m still raising money for this run on my Justgiving page, the link is on my sidebar >>>>

I’m going to die!!!

Weigh in Wednesday

It’s Wednesday! and I’m back on my usual schedule of Wednesday weigh ins.

As you may know I was in Scotland last week, which will have taken a toll on my weight – in an upwards direction. When I first got back on Sunday, I weighed in at 239 pounds (the horror…). I was horribly bloated from all the crap food I’d consumed over the week, so I was expecting a high weigh in directly afterwards.

Last weigh in (17th April): 227 pounds
This week: 234.6 pounds

A gain of 7.6 pounds over two weeks, however a loss of 4.4 pounds from the weekend until now. So I’m heading in the right direction again now…

To lose for goal 2: 35.9 pounds

Let’s get cracking on this then…

Food
I’ve planned food out this week, which will help me to keep on track. I just need to stick to it and avoid the communal snacky-goodness at work.

Exercise
I need to train for my upcoming Race for Life, so I want to get out and run 3 times a week. No, scratch that, I need to. Not just want to…

Goals for Next week:
Weight: 230 Pounds
Exercise: run 3 times
