I went to bed last night feeling very bloated. I am not sure why as I didn’t eat anything out of the ordinary. I did have a chicken curry at my mums with rice so perhaps there was an ingredient in this which has bloated me, it was rather filling and I couldn’t eat it all but I was hoping that was because my tummy is shrinking!!
This morning after a great nights sleep (a full 8 hours) I was feeling fresh and bright and breezy and ready to tackle what the day threw at me. By 9am I had completed a full 25 minute run (with no walking) and was sitting at my desk ready to do a days work. I was very proud of myself and really pleased that I managed a full 25 minutes without stopping for the 2nd time this week. It was difficult and the thought of stopping did go through my head on several occasions but I managed to fight the thoughts by focusing on the weight I want to loose and how much weight I need to loose. My fellow runner is now on holiday for 2 x weeks so I will be running on my own for at least 2 more weeks. She has promised me that when she returns she will be focusing on her running and will come out with me which will be nice. I am getting used to running on my own but it is so much nicer to run with someone else.
Tonight is countdown to Thursdays weigh in and so the next 30+ hours I will be focusing on eating the right foods and not nibbling on any junk (not that I have been anyway). I have been good this week but feel in myself like a porker. I feel boated and heavy (even on the run today I felt heavy). I don’t know the reason for this but it will be interesting to log this and keep an eye on when it occurs. Perhaps my tummy is getting used to the lower amounts of food and so when I eat it feels full? I really dont know.
