Weigh in Wednesday

Good morning, it’s that time of the week again!

Here we go:

Last week: 227 pounds
This week: 229 pounds
2 pound gain
Total loss: 5 pounds
Next week: 227 pounds

Damn water retention. I’m really bloated today, so it’s likely that those 2 pounds will drop off again providing I drink looaads of water.

Food
Ate quite a lot at the weekend, but it was mostly healthy stuff that we pre-packed for a day out. I think I did quite well considering. More wholesome foods please!

Exercise
I haven’t been for a run yet, but I will! I’m gyming this evening, and want to make a schedule for me to stick to.

Life
This section should really be called sleep, I mention my lack of it every week!

Pip and I have decided to challenge each other. My challenge is to loose 7 pounds by our September meet-up. I challenged her to hit a body fat percentage goal.
My target: 220 pounds
Pips target: 21% bf

Terms of the challenge are undecided as of yet, but I’m sure we’ll hammer out the details soon!

Weigh In Wednesday

I think I’m going to write this weigh in off as an anomaly. Apparently I’ve put on 6 pounds in just as many days. I know for certain that I am bloated and retaining water, and yesterday was a big food eaten late day.  It was the parentals anniversary, we went out for a meal but everyone had to wait for me to get home! So all of that food is probably sitting in my tummy waiting to be digested.

This week

Food
Need to get ontop of this and stop eating so much crappy food. Filling, wholesome meals please!!

Exercise
I haven’t ran for a while, just over a week in fact. I need to get back on this, bearing in mind that the race is next week!!! I’ve also started weight lifting, which I would like to stick to, but would depend on whether I can fit gym into my schedule more!

Life
Trying to stay positive. Quite stressed at work at the moment which contributes to my eating badly…

Apologies for this post being a little late!

Wednesday Weigh in

Good morrow! After a turbulent weekend in which I had a fight with myself about running, I’ve come out the other side and reached the inevitable weigh in day.

Last week: 233.5 pounds
Today: 231.5 pounds

Water weight you feind!

I’m always up and down a few pounds like a yoyo due to water weight, which makes it quite difficult to tell if it’s a real loss or not. But I’m happy it’s a loss nonetheless.

This week:
EAT WELL. By well I mean good whole foods. Fruit and veg and cut out those darn biscuits. Luckily all the biscuits at work have gone…

Run. Keep it up, don’t give up even if there’s a bad run-I’m still going faster than everyone on the couch. I was reminded of this over the weekend.

Exercise. I want to do strength exercises, especially for my arms and back. I’ve been trying to work out a day which I can get to the gym for weights, but it’s been difficult! Outside of that there are exercises which can be done at home…Once I fit this into my weekly schedule it should come easily.

Happy Wednesday! Almost the weekend!
