Happy Monday

Start Weight: 205 pounds

Last weeks weight: 207

Current weight: 206

Progress from last week: -1  😀

Overall Progress: +1 pound

Quite suprised I didn’t put on, I was sure I was overeating too much. At best I was hoping to maintain, but no! I lost a pound, hooray! Almost down to my start weigh again. It’s taken long enough! once I pass that I will  feel like any weight lost from now on is real progress, not just trying to get back to an overweight target I should have been long past already!

This week is going to be difficult, le boyfriend is over and I always end up overeating when he is here, he is always hungry. If I do eat more than usual while he’s here, I’m going to make sure it’s fruit. Whether he likes it or not!

Aiming for a loss of 2 pounds or more, to get me underneath that start weight!

My fitness freak friend suggested I aim to weigh 180 by the time everyone is back at uni (4 weeks from now) that’s 26 pounds in 4 weeks. I’m not sure that’s even possible, but I suppose if I exercised 4-5 times a week it would happen. I think I’ll look at this as my ambitious target. Still aim for it, but not get too upset if I don’t achieve it…

RUN! …No really, run.

Just got back from running. really struggled with this one, especially starting out. I think my cold is still lurking in my chest, and I didn’t have my asthma pump. equals struggle and much coughing. I’m glad we went out though. also glad that it wasn’t raining any more!

Pushed myself (actually Miss Motivator pushed me, and I complied) on the last run, going fast than before, and instead of stopping early like I did on my first run, slowed the pace down instead. I guess you could call that progress…of the slow and painful kind…that makes you feel sick afterwards…

I’m finding it difficult to work out what to wear when running, especially when the weather is cold, as I don’t want to keep getting sick. today I had a hoodie on the whole time, and got very warm. I kept it on because I didn’t want to cool down too much when switching to and from walking. Hard decisions….maybe run in a gilet (bodywarmer) when its really cold?  or is there a fancy fabric that can keep you warm and cool at the same time?

GOOGLE! ACTIVATE!

anywaaaay, Ive done week 1 of the podcast 3 times, so I am now allowed to graduate to the week 2 podcast, but I really don’t feel that would be a good idea just yet. maybe one or two more of the week 1, then move up. I’m worried about pushing myself too soon, getting injured, and losing all motivation…
