Weigh In Wednesday

It’s Wednesday again, people! The first weds of September. Summer is officially over, and we are in the countdown to Christmas now.

Weigh in

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.

Food
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

Exercise
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.

Sleep
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

Happy Wednesday…

Run Soloo

(^ said in the voice of Jabba the Hut)

Just got back from my first solo run.

It went well, I paced myself well and even continued running for a few seconds after the podcast had said to stop. however, I did have to stop halfway to do up my shoelaces!

My ankles were not very happy to have weight on them! they felt really stiff and strained the whole way around, I believe this could be because I was on my feet all day at work, and my shoes weren’t done up tight enough (before I stopped to re-lace them). they still weren’t very happy after I had tightened my trainers, so I’m leaning more towards them being overtired. I’ve also been having trouble with my left knee today, a slight twinge. While running I noticed my hips were aching, and now that I’m back home my hips are still aching. I’m hoping this is just down to being at work rather than some form of running injury! …

My breathing was much better, not chatting helps to concentrate on pulling air in and out!

I enjoyed the run, even with the aches and pains, it was a nice time to run. My route goes into town in the middle of it, and it was nice to see the town after all the shoppers had gone home, before all the night life comes out.

I think it’s slowly dawning on me that I like running 😐 Weird.
