Update!

I have been SO busy recently!

Have a full time job, which involves commuting to get there and back, so I’m out from 6.30am until 8pm every weekday. How do you fit an exercise routine into that I ask you?!

It may came as no surprise that I have yet again, put on weight. Had a bad food week but today was a good day, and I want that to continue. Actively avoiding the food vendors at the train stations are going to be a big part of that!

I’m right back up to about 221, but I have been super bloaty recently, so I’m hoping that will drop down a little.

Graduation target is never going to happen, but mayhaps I will be able to lose at least SOMETHING. PLEASE.

Why does fattening food have to be so yummy?

Injury Update

Ankle injury is slowly on the mend! looks bruised and is still a little swollen, but it’s getting easier to walk on it. Unless the pavement isn’t flat, or I’m going uphill/downhill…

want to get back into doing Jillians 30 day shred as soon as possible. Without causing myself further injury! Also walking to work without it hurting would be nice!

 

3 weeks until my birthday!

Highest weight: 213 pounds

Last weeks weight: 213 pounds

This weeks weight: 212 pounds

Progress: -1 pound

 

This week is week 2 of my 4 week shed, not off to a flying start, but the weather has impeded my exercise plans. Also an excessive amount of cereal bars had a negative effect.

This week will be better. I will swim, work out at home, and not buy any cereal bars.

I’ll keep you updated!

A Post-Christmas Post

I AM SO STUFFED.

I’m glad the majority of the food eating event has passed!

I feel slightly ashamed to admit that I used to take all this eating in my stride and it wouldn’t bother me much – maybe for an hour or two until the next yummy treat was brought out! But not this year. This year I was full all day, very uncomfortable! however I have been enjoying the Christmas dinner and other treats…Have definitely learnt that it’s OK to leave food on my plate if I’m full instead of forcing it all down until I burst.

I feel there’s a lot of work ahead of me to achieve my goals. Like a mountain of will power and exercise.

Monday=weigh day

Start Weight: 205 pounds

Current weight: 210

Overall Progress: +5 pounds        😦 booo

 

Maintained from last week. Better than putting on I suppose! I’m hoping to start running again this week, but at the moment I feel like death. I’m hoping it will clear up later this afternoon and I can run. Fingers crossed!

I really want to shift some weight off this week. I need to get into the habit of exercising while in my flat. Just of an evening, do some sit-ups or use my resistance body toner. (thing you put between your legs/arms and squeeze)

This week I want to lose 2 pounds.

weigh dayy… 70 to go

2012 start weight: 202

Last weeks weigh in: 198

Today weight: 200.     +2. boo hiss !

March 12th goal: 195

June 18th goal: 181

 

Noooooooo 😦 its the end of the world.

 

ok so it’s not the end of the world. its a minor setback. I knew I hadn’t been eating very well recently so I had expected to put on. Still a bit of a shock though…

this week I’m planning on having loads of fruit. at the moment I only have oranges, so oranges it is! I’m doing an experiment on myself, seeing if i feel better on the nightshift when I’m energising from fruit instead of high sugar things like biscuits and lucozade. . . so ill try to keep you posted on that one…

SneakyPeak

Zumba this evening, didn’t think I was going to be able to do all of it, but I did, which surprised me 🙂 yay. Although definitely had a stitch and shortness of breath ha..

Had a sneaky weigh in today, just to see how i was getting on, and have lost a pound or two – and i triple checked this time ha.. – which leads me to believe that I’ve been bloated over last weekend and on Monday. I have felt pretty sluggish, so I most likely was…

I’ve been back on the water again the last couple of days as well, which I’ve noticed had made me feel better. I need to get myself some satsumas (small oranges) to fend of the winter bugs… my chest hasn’t been feeling too healthy this week. But still, eating well will only help.
