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!!
So today was weigh in day. My weight gain was 1.5lb (which is what I lost last week). Although I have upped the time I run for I also upped the amount of food I consumed last week – it was very difficult being stuck in the house with the bad weather and I think one of the contributions to this weight gain was the Pot of Olives with Feta cheese that I consumed on Sunday.
My tummy also felt very bloated and still does. I am going to try and eat a little bit more fibre to see if that helps as I don’t think I was consuming enough.
I am not angry, upset or cross that I put on this week. I have done so well over the last 4 weeks that I am bound to have the occasional blip. I was expecting to either remain the same or put on this week so it wasnt a shock.
I did however go for my Thursday morning post weigh in run and I did work harder than I normally would. I am finding the 25 minute run quite a challenge and it is difficult. 25 minutes seems like a long time when you are running on your own and today I pushed myself by upping my pace on several occasions for short bursts.
This week I will loose and I will not be eating Olives.
