Good morning! It’s that time again…the after-Easter weigh in. And yes, I have been eating chocolate.
Last Week: 225 Pounds
Today: 227 Pounds
To lose for goal 2: 28 Pounds
I’m not surprised at gaining with all the chocolate and big meals I’ve been eating. I’m hoping that once I’m back to a healthy eating plan that will easily come off again. I want to plan out my food again as that was really helpful when I was doing it before, but I;m not sure when exactly I’m going to have time to do that! I’ll try to do it tonight but we shall see…
The biscuit ban is over! I surprised myself with this, I did much better than I thought. I did break the ban a little early last week, but I don’t feel bad about it. I’m going to do biscuit ban for a further 2 weeks starting from today.
I’m finding it quite difficult to motivate myself to exercise at the moment. This is probably heavily related to feeling tired all the time, so I’m trying to get some more sleep at the moment. it’s not been working very well so far!
Goals for Next Week
Weight: 224 Pounds
Exercise: Go out on 2 runs
I didn’t weigh in yesterday because I was away from my scales. I know I must have put on weight because I’ve done nothing but eat recently. Urrrg.
I found my old scales, and weighed myself on them. They are DEFINITELY incorrect. Told me I was almost a stone heavier. Erm, I doubt I put that on in a week. Bloody things.
Currently ill, cold, stuffy head, sensitive stomach etc, so I’m alternately craving foods, and feeling nauseous. Have eaten quite healthily today, which is good. I need to keep this up and ensure I don’t get tempted while at work. Especially by magical words like ‘Nandos’ which may or may not have happened this week…So bad. I cant help it, I just loves me some food.I want to exercise today, but I feel so naff, that it would probably be a bad idea. I would rather get better first…But maybe I’ll do the 30 day challenge. I haven’t missed a single day so far! It would be such a shame to start missing days now.
O U C H
Leg day happened, courtesy of Scott dragging my sorry ass to the gym. Which is good…But also painful. So. Many. Lunges.
Here’s what I did:
Warm up – 8 x bar only (20kgs – all weights below will include this 20kg)
6 x 40kg
8 x 50 kg
8 x 60kg – 3 sets
5kg each hand x 20 – 3 sets
Treadmill Walking Lunge
50 x 2 sets
20 x 35kg – 3 sets
Those lunges just about killed me. Stairs are not my friend at the moment…
I also did day 1 of my 30 Day Challenge when I got home – the squats were so difficult!
Went running today! For the first time in forever!
Me and my sister wanted to do some exercise today, originally it was going to be a bike ride, however the bikes need some maintenance and I didn’t want to do it! So we settled on running. We used the Couch to 5k programme-which I have used before. It’s really good, and gradually builds your stamina up. My sister is fitter than I am, so after the first 60 second interval I said stop, she replied “What? Really?” But I think later in the run she was glad for the walk intervals!
The run wasn’t great. The ankle I damaged back in February seized up and was really painful, and the trainer on the other foot decided to chew up my heel-leaving me with a rubbed raw foot on one side and a stiff, sore ankle on the other! Needless to say, due to this we only did half of the run, but we still walked for the duration of the podcast!
277 Cals burned, & a half hour extra exercise I wouldn’t have done if we hadn’t gone out. Not too shabby compared with the ultimate lack of exercise in the last few weeks!
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?
Weight loss, exercise and healthy eating have all not been going well at all this past week or so. At all. So bad.
I need to kick myself up the butt again and crack down on my bad eating habits. I’m never going to hit my graduation goal now, but maybe I can make some headway towards it in the next 4 weeks.
I’m desperate to get back into running, but by the time I’ve been getting home all I want to do is chill out and do nothing all evening!
Basically, I am SO lazy.
I keep fluctuating between 214 and 215, however I think the 215 today is due to having a BBQ at the weekend!
