Another 1lb off this week. I am quite happy with that loss as I did eat a few naughty things over the weekend.
As the title of todays blog states I have lost a total of 17lb (1 stone 3lb) so far. That is an average of just over 1lb weight loss a week which I am very happy with. If I can do this all year that will be 52lb or 3 stone 7lb on one year.
I had a great run this morning with Rebecca and enjoyed the run whilst I was running as well as afterwards. It was rather windy but we did it and our pace was pretty good too.
Its all good. Onwards and Upwards!!
Sorry sorry sorry to those of you whom are following my blog. I have not posted for over a week. I dont know where the time has gone. I have been frantically selling things on e-bay trying to raise some spending money for our holiday and so by the time I have done this I have had enough of sitting at my desk and lap top! One day I will upgrade to an ipad and life will be so much easier.
Well you will be pleased to hear that last Thursday I weighed in and lost a total of 3lb. I was as you can imagine very very happy. I also got my 1 stone weight loss award and slimmer of the week award!!! So my total weight loss is now 17lb. Only 5 stone and 11lb to go (i’m getting there slowly).
Last Tuesday I had a terrible run. I only managed to run for 10 minutes and ended up power walking the rest. So I continued as usual and did my usual run on Thursday and yes it went fine. I managed it without stopping and ran for a full 30 mins (with a few wee stops for monty!). On Saturday my run was fine and Mondays run was also fine so hopefully I am back on track again now. I am noticing that my breathing seems to be holding me back and I am wheezing so I think a trip to the doctors is required to check that I am not asthmatic or something.
I have not done Davina this week as I need to fix my DVD player which seems to have gone up the swanny. Hopefully this will be sorted out soon as I am missing my living room workout.
So – tomorrow – weigh in again. How do I think I will do? Hmmmmm. I have been sensible with my eating but I did have a Mr Whippy ice-cream on bank holiday Monday with a chocolate flake in it! I have felt guilty ever since for consuming this and so if I have remained the same or put on weight then Mr Whippy was the cause. Its my own fault and I will know next time not to have a Mr Whippy ice-cream. It was very nice though.
I will be going for a run in the morning and I am looking forward to it. It is so nice to be able to run now the weather is a bit better, especially early in he morning before it gets too warm.
Grrrrrrr. I lost half a pound!! So I am half a pound off that 1 stone mark. Soooo frustrating but I am not giving up and I am doing all the right things. I am keeping a food diary so will ask someone to take a look at it next week at Slimming World. I am exercising 4 times a week and before I was doing nothing so surely the weight loss should be showing??
It must be something I am eating. Yes I do have the occasional treat but I am not going to stop eating those sort of things forever just eat them in moderation and this is a lifetime habit not just a short term thing.
I will continue what ~I am doing excercise wise and I will just have to keep an eye on what I am eating. Perhaps I am not eating enough?? i.e. my main meal? I just don’t know. I have stopped eating bread, I have 1 x packet of crisps a week (compared to 3/4 packets a day which is what I used to consume), I hardly ever have pasta now. I try and eat salads, chicken, jkt potato sometimes basmati rice, fruit. My diet is so different now compared to what it was 3 months ago and I seriously am expecting more weight loss than this especially with all the excercise I am doing.
Oh well, next week is another week and I will hit the 1 stone loss next week. Then I have to aim for my next half stone.
Bye for now.
Weigh in tomorrow. Will I achieve my 1 stone loss?? (I only need to loose 1lb)
I have had three successful runs this week and did the Davina intense toning workout tonight. I havent overeaten or eaten anything I shouldnt have but I seem to be weighing heavier on the scales. I’m not sure why but lets see what the scales tell us tomorrow.
I work part time because I am a single mother with a 3 year old. I chose to take less money for less hours. So why am I still working when it is nearly 9pm?? Yes I know I am very grateful that I have a job and a good job at that but I am only supposed to work part time!! Grrrrr. I have a pile of washing to iron, my nails to paint before I go into the office tomorrow and loads and loads of clothes to put onto ebay so I have some spending money for my holiday. When am I going to get a chance to do all these things when I have to work every evening!!!
Ok again I have a job and sometimes it is quiet and I am bored but it seems to go from one extreme to the other.
Anyway rant over. I do like my job but I have been sitting in front of my computer since 8.30am with only 1hrs break at lunchtime where I managed to fit in a run.
The good thing is I have hardly eaten a thing today so fingers crossed for a positive weigh in on Thursday.
Sorry everyone I just needed a good old moan about the fact that I have a very good part time job which sometimes I have to work more than part time hours doing. But I do appreciate the fact that I get paid at the end of the month and have a job.
I am averaging approx 1lb weight loss per week. If I can keep this up for the year then thats 52lb in a year or 3 stone 7lb. If I can achieve more weight loss than this then fantastic but I have been informed by several sources that the recommended weight loss is 2lb a week to sustain that loss. Ok so 2lb a week would be 7 stone!!! (My target)!! Gosh I had best get the Davina DVD out more often.
On Saturday I ran with Rebecca again and we did a different route than the normal one. There were a few tough hills and wow did they hurt but surprisingly I wasnt too stiff the next day. We are going to try and do a different route on our weekend runs and in a few weeks time we will try some interval training to up our pace.
This evening we booked our flights for our holiday. You should see me I am soooo excited and I know Olivia will be when I tell her. IT will be her first holiday abroad and she is going to be a Bridesmaid too!! (Well we did take her to Lanzarote for a holiday just after Russell died but she was only 6 months old and can’t remember it) I have just over 3 weeks to shift some more weight before we go and I am looking forward to the challenge of running in the heat. (If I can’t bear the heat the hotel has a gym I can workout in). Yippeeeeeeee.
I was so pleased to hear that my Step Daughter Eloise and her Mum (Donna) completed their first week of the Get Running training this week. Well done Donna and Ella, we can all run the Race for Life together later in the year.
Have a good week everyone.
1.5lb loss this week. Still 1lb to loose to get my 1 stone loss. Soooo frustrating. I did however get an award today for regular exercise for over 4 x weeks continuous.
