30DS: day 10 – level 2

I missed a day yesterday because I was shattered when I got in after working on a show. A bit annoyed at myself for not doing it.

made a last minute decision to start level 2 today instead of tomorrow, it’s more intense and I couldn’t do some of the moves because my arms already felt like jelly without going back into another plank position.

Hopefully I’ll be better at it tomorrow.


30DS: Day 6

I found it hard today, I was tired, hadn’t eaten anything, not in the best of moods, and it all made me feel demoralised. Still got through it though. Just about.

I don’t seem to be losing any weight or losing inches as of yet, but I’ll do an official measurement/weigh in/picture on day 10 (as well as my usual weigh day on monday)

I’ve been eating back the majority of the calories I burn, I need to be strict with myself and not do this so much if I want to see any real differences.

weigh day

Start Weight: 205 pounds

Current weight: 209

Progress from last week: + 2

Overall Progress: + 4

Technically I only put on just over a pound, but because of the way I round down last week it now seems like I’ve put on two pounds. perfect…I knew that would bite me in the ass. eating out didn’t help.

This week will be better.

new week, new run.

The same run really, just getting back into it after not going for a week.

Reaally wasn’t feeling it, but once we started I got into it a bit more and it felt nice to be out. I didn’t exactly enjoy it, but I knew I needed to do it. running with purpose.

Started out ok, other than my shins hurting, which usually happens. I was thinking ‘huh….this isn’t so bad, maybe its time to go to the next one up..’ until the third interval run when my chest felt like I had a belt around my waist stopping my diaphragm from working! Pushed through it though, with some encouragement.

I felt like we were running slower than normal, but we finished the run further on that we have before, though its possible we were just walking faster.

Debating whether or not to up the run to the week 2 podcast… it says to do each one three times before moving up to the next week, and I’ve done it 4 times now, but I still really struggle with the last few runs. iii dont know what to dooo.

maybe do one more of week one, then try the week 2? I guess I’m always going to be worried about starting the next one until I actually do…

p.s. my cold is finally starting to go away!!

weigh in

Start Weight: 205 pounds

Current weight: 208.6.                    I Hate Me.

Progress so far: +3.6

Mum’s progress so far: -5


I’ve managed to put on again, even though this week I’ve eaten well. Makes NO sense. I’m going to assume it’s down to eating late and having big portion sizes. hoping to start Boxercise to see what its like this week or next. Hopefully this week…

Not very happy with myself at the moment, but onwards and upwards. hopefully downwards.


…I don’t have it.

Even though I know something is bad for me, like doughnuts or biscuits, I want to eat it anyway, and alot of the time I do.  I guess that’s why I’m in this predicament to begin with.That, plus laziness.  makes me wonder if I can actually do this, lose weight I mean. I thought it would drop off me at first-isn’t that usually the way it goes? but it hasn’t. which makes me feel crap that its not working as quickly as I want it to.

I know recently I’ve been eating really badly, which is probably part of the reason I feel crap, but it’s just so easy. fruit and veg is expensive too 😦 boo hiss!

I know I’m whining. and I’m the only one who can makes these changes to make my life better, but why does it have to be difficult??
