Weigh in (not) Wednesday

Morning all.

I know I’m a day late on this, but I wasnt at home yesterday morning and subsequently had no access to my scales. I did, however, weigh myself this morning. Lets just say I had a bad week and leave it at that shall we? I’m horrendously bloated and overfull at the moment so I need to deflate before I can get an accurate reading on my weight.

So, over to my progress reports!

Last weeks goal: Eat within my calorie limit 6 / 7 days
I managed: 3 / 7 days
Not great, and clearly that’s had an effect on my weight. I ate out a couple of times this week and made excuses for it. Not much more to say on this really!

Last weeks goal: Burn 6000 calories
I managed: to over eat at bring it up to 6950 calories, but also burned 720. 720 / 6950 calories overall.
Again, this is not great and is down to overeating again.

Last weeks goal: Get 8 hours sleep 4 out of 7 nights
I managed: 3 / 7 nights
I need to get into a habit of getting to bed that little bit earlier. I have such limited time in the evenings that everything gets pushed back and I end up going to bed late.

Goals For Next Week
Weight: 220 pounds
Food: Eat within calorie limit 5 / 7 days
Exercise: Burn 6000 calories
Sleep: Get 8 hours sleep 4 / 7 nights

Weigh in After-Wednesday

I weighed myself again this morning, to gauge where I’m heading for next week.

Weigh in: 229 pounds
Woo so that’s 2 pounds down from two days ago, which means I was still uber bloated on Tuesday.

Goal for next weds: 227 pounds
Ideally I actually need to lose 3 pounds to be on track for the BFF challenge, if I can get that then awesome, if not, as long as I’m under 16 stone (224) I think I’ll be happy. Maybe. I won’t be whilst doing the tricep dips!!

Weigh in Wednesday

Good morning, it’s that time of the week again!

Here we go:

Last week: 227 pounds
This week: 229 pounds
2 pound gain
Total loss: 5 pounds
Next week: 227 pounds

Damn water retention. I’m really bloated today, so it’s likely that those 2 pounds will drop off again providing I drink looaads of water.

Ate quite a lot at the weekend, but it was mostly healthy stuff that we pre-packed for a day out. I think I did quite well considering. More wholesome foods please!

I haven’t been for a run yet, but I will! I’m gyming this evening, and want to make a schedule for me to stick to.

This section should really be called sleep, I mention my lack of it every week!

Pip and I have decided to challenge each other. My challenge is to loose 7 pounds by our September meet-up. I challenged her to hit a body fat percentage goal.
My target: 220 pounds
Pips target: 21% bf

Terms of the challenge are undecided as of yet, but I’m sure we’ll hammer out the details soon!

Weigh In Wednesday

I think I’m going to write this weigh in off as an anomaly. Apparently I’ve put on 6 pounds in just as many days. I know for certain that I am bloated and retaining water, and yesterday was a big food eaten late day.  It was the parentals anniversary, we went out for a meal but everyone had to wait for me to get home! So all of that food is probably sitting in my tummy waiting to be digested.

This week

Need to get ontop of this and stop eating so much crappy food. Filling, wholesome meals please!!

I haven’t ran for a while, just over a week in fact. I need to get back on this, bearing in mind that the race is next week!!! I’ve also started weight lifting, which I would like to stick to, but would depend on whether I can fit gym into my schedule more!

Trying to stay positive. Quite stressed at work at the moment which contributes to my eating badly…

Apologies for this post being a little late!

Wednesday Weigh Day

Good morning early risers!

Today is the first Wednesday Weigh Day. I last Weighed in at 229 pounds/104kg.

Today: 229lbs / 104 kg

I know for sure that my weight went down, up, and back down again. So I’m not to distraught that I haven’t lost anything. I had a bad food weekend so I was expecting to put on. Weekends are a big part of why I decided to weigh in on Wednesdays, I think it will give me a much more accurate veiw of my weight, rather than a veiw of bloating and extra weight from the weekend.

I would like to take this time-while travelling to work-to remind myself of my goals:

NY resolution: I will lose a minimum of 2 stone by July.

Fitness Goal: Climb Ben Nevis in April

Ultimate Goal weight: 130 pounds / 59 kilos

The first two are achievable goals to drive me to get healthy. The last one is my ideal weight. I really want this. So much. 2014 is the year I do this thing.

Monday Weighday!

Weigh in: 229 pounds
Loss of 3 pounds

This is probably water weight going bye byes, or holiday bloating finally disappearing. Either way it’s a good thing!

Have eaten a lot better this week. I’ve been actively trying to get my 5 a day in and drink 2 litres of water, which I think it’s what is making the difference. And resisting the office biscuits! Towards the end of the week I wasn’t quite so good, but I’m back to eating well again this week. Plus going to the gym, with the new regime the PT did with me last week.

Still feeling good about 2014. This year will be the year I lose it.

Error. Bizarre weigh in.


S health stats there for you.  Foods been high, but usually that would either maintain or be a pound or two.

Apparently not.

According to the scales, I put on 6 pounds in 2 days, then from yesterday to today, lost 3 pounds.


The most logical explanations I can think of are as follows:
1: the scales are broken.
2: I’m rapidly taking on water and losing it again.
3: I’m a mutant.

On a different note, I’ve joined a gym.  Anytime Fitness, open 24/7 and will have classes too. Waiting on an induction at the moment, but I work during their staffed hours. So I’ll probably have to do it on the weekend, which means missing out on a whole week of gym-ing because I work full time. Boo.

Next week I am aiming for a stablised 224 pounds.

11.12.13 EDIT: Weighed myself again this morning, the scales were much more reasonable, 224 pounds. Goal for next week: 222 pounds.
