Weigh in Wednesday

After my venting session last Thursday things have improved. I’m still eating well, and have spoken to the people that I was upset with and – hopefully – resolved things. All good. I’m in a better place emotionally now.

Last Week: 229.8 pounds
Today: 227.2 pounds
To lose for goal 1: 17.7 pounds

A loss of 2.6 pounds this week. Finally we are heading in the right direction again! Now I just need to keep up the better eating habits and keep on losing. I feel good because I’ve lost a little bit – I know I didn’t hit my target from last week (225 pounds) but a loss is a loss regardless. I may end up way off my March Goal, but I am still aiming for it, and will lose more this month in the run up towards it. If I can get within 7 pounds of it I’ll be pleased…

Biscuit Ban Update
This has been going surprisingly well. There are biscuits at work which I consider to be my favorites, but I haven’t touched them at all. I only crave them when I see other people eating them…But so far so good on the avoidance front.

Ben Nevis Update
My flu-cold is almost gone, so I am back into training for Ben Nevis now. At the weekend I did a 3.7km walk with steep hills on Saturday, followed by a 5km walk with some gentler hills on Sunday. Going forward I need to up the distance of the walks and get some more hills in.

Goals for Next Week
Weight: 224 pounds
Exercise: Walk 8km

Ben Nevis 2015

Readers from last year may be aware that I went up Ben Nevis in 2014. We didn’t get to the top, and It was a harrowing experience, full of pain and crying.

So naturally, I’m doing it again this year. To the top.

I am soo stupid.

Well, no, I’m not stupid; but I am worried about doing it again.

I’ve made a training plan, and am aiming to get up to walking the distance required for Ben Nevis two weeks beforehand, and then a long (but shorter) distance the week before to taper down in the run up to it.

This year there are 5 of us going. The same 4 from last year – Me, Andrew, Hux’ and Kay – additionally Alex will be joining us for the ascent. We’ll be heading up to Scotland in the last week of April, with me doing some of the driving! Exciting. Last year we went up on 01-04-14. Going at the end of the month means – hopefully – we will have better conditions and less snow.

Waaaa I’m scared
