It’s Wednesday again, people! The first weds of September. Summer is officially over, and we are in the countdown to Christmas now.
Last week: 229 pounds
Today: 228 pounds
Goal for next week: 227 pounds
A loss of 1 pound, yaay. Any movement downwards is good, even if I didnt hit the goal I set last week.
Last week-while I was off due to straining my neck-I didn’t eat very much atall. I was at home not doing much other than watching tv and doing some work from home, and I had no desire to snack. I ate at meal times, and that was about it. I actually under-ate for most of that week. Once my neck was feeling a bit better and I went back to work, it was snack central all over again. There’s something about being at work that makes me crave snacks all the time.
This week I haven’t been as good, but I am trying. Only bad things I’ve eaten are a couple of biscuits each day. I know I need to cut them out of my life but they’re so damn tasty…I need to teach myself some avoidance techniques. Or just have some will power…
Goal: No more biscuits this week
Well this went out of the window when I hurt my neck. Very annoying! I’ve been wanting to go for a run, which is a bit odd as I don’t usually crave a run. I suppose it’s probably because I am unable to do it, therefore I want to.
The 30 day challenge is also on hold, I missed a few days, then hurt my neck and here we are 15 days later. I want to continue it, and plan to once I am able to without writhing in pain.
Goal: ease back into exercise-find things that don’t hurt neck.
I need more. Last week I got a lot of sleep and I felt much better for it. I’m aiming to increase how long I sleep during the week as that is where I tend to lose out.
Goal: go to bed before 11pm
I have been super busy recently, and have not been eating very well because of that. I have put on weight (a pound or so) and am hoping to get rid of it this week.
I am changing my weigh-in day to the weekend-Saturday/Sunday-for the next few weeks because I am up too early on Mondays to be able to weigh in.
To shed the weight I’ve put on and-hopefully-some more, I am gong to plan my meals and create packed lunches. I also want to get back into running – if my ankle will allow that. I’m Hoping I can stick to it and work through the C25K programme. We shall see I suppose, both if my ankle will take it and if I can stick to it this time.
Last weeks weight: 211 pounds
Current weight: 211 pounds
Goal for next week: 209
Maintained. Much better than putting back on which was what I was expecting. It’s been a bad food week! goal for next week is lose 2 pounds. I’ll be doing a lot of walking this week so I’m hoping to tamper that with healthy foods and generate a loss.
The squat challenge is still ongoing, however I missed a couple of days so now I’m playing catch up by not having my rest days. If I am not too tired by this evening I may try to catch up on a days squats, and then I’ll be back on track.
I really want to start running again. I’ve been thinking about this this week and I want to get back into it. It felt good-afterwards anyway! I’m not sure if my ankle will be able to handle me running. It’s been sore and stiff the past couple of days. I guess I should keep exercising it and see how it feels in a few days!
Put back on the 2 pounds I lost, but that’s not a big deal, or a big surprise It’s my birthday tomorrow so have been a little naughty over the weekend with my food!
once I’m back to normal eating and exercising I’m sure it will drop off again!
Injury update: swelling has started to go down on my ankle, and its easier to put weight on it, still sore though! I’m hoping for a quick recovery, although with the snow that’s currently falling I’m concerned I’ll slip and hurt it more!
I strained my ankle last night. Now I’m unable to do the 30 day shred, soooo… I’ll keep you updated on how recovery goes.
