On the way to a better me

Friday, August 26, 2011

Well that was a surprise....

I lost 200g this week. Not much but at least it's in the right direction, so huzzah! So my weight is sitting on 92.5kgs, total loss of 32.5kgs with 22.2kgs to go. And so now I'm coming to the lowest weight I have gotten to so far 92.0. I've never been under that before, I don't think I'm capable
of losing big numbers anymore so I'll expect it to take me a few weeks, but I am determined to get into the 80s DETERMINED!!!

As I said, I'm going to take the weekend off, enjoy time with gorgeous friends and good food, then start again on Monday. I'm going to track ALL my food, ALL my exercise, am going to DO ALL my exercise and I'm going to drink ALL my water. But most important of all I'M GOING TO GET OUT OF THIS FUNK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! If I don't you have permission to give me a swift kick in the behind.

Well it appears that my mojo has completely gone now :( This makes me really sad and I hope it comes back soon. I hate feeling this way but I guess it was bound to happen really, acutally it's probably not the first time, I can't remember. But man this is a looooooooooong difficult journey, really, really difficult. And don't get me wrong, I know I've come a long way and it's not like I'm not seeing results but I do still have such a long way to go.

I try not to do such negative posts but I just feel in such a funk right now and I'm not sure how to get out of it. I think I will take the rest of this week off, have a lovely weekend with lovely friends and hope that my mojo returns on Monday.

Expecting a terrible weigh in tomorrow, but I guess I'll cross that bridge tomorrow, not going to help my funk though *sigh*

Finding it hard.....

Hard to stay motivated with my eating. For some reason this week seems to have gone to hell, and I'm not really sure why, perhaps the monotony of it all? Exercise isn't a problem, I'm totally motivated with that, but my eating, nope. Not that I'm going and eating a whole bunch of rubbish (well only a little bit) but I'm not binging or anything but I'm just not caring. I don't think I've been eating enough with all my exercise as I haven't been putting it into my tracker and therefore have been having extra points and not using them, possibly that's why my weightloss has slowed down? Which sounds weird I know but you do need to eat enough of the right things TO lose weight.

Anyway, I'm going to assume this week will be a write off, I will definitely be expecting a gain unless I find my motivation somewhere by tomorrow. I'll keep up with my exercise, probably even step it up a bit, but don't be surprised if I am reporting a gain on Friday, I know I won't be.

A loss, hooray! 600g only, but maybe I'm done with the big numbers now, which is a shame because I'd love another big loss to get me down into the 80s, I'm yet to crack the 80s and I'd really LOVE to, that's my next mini goal. So my 600g loss takes me to a total of 32.3kgs lost and my weight is sitting at 92.7.

Am up to week 5, well completed sort of, week 5 of C25K. And OMG sooooooooooo hard. I didn't want to vomit and die which was good but I did step on the sides a few times to talk myself out and then in of finishing. So because of that I will repeat week 5 and be sure to finish it properly. Still doing situps, pushups and squats. They're getting easier and I'm no longer getting sore afterwards thank goodness, because I was in SO much pain.

Onto photos, I got new hair and we went to the wedding I mentioned in my previous post :D

So there we have it folks, lets see what this next week brings :D

A gain *sigh*

Only 300g, but it's still annoying. I've been keeping up with my C25K, which is running for 3 minutes as well as 5 minutes and I have also been doing situps, pushups and squats (only once though, will talk about that in a minute), but I'm assuming I have put on muscle and that's accounting for the gain, but still grrrrrrrrrrr. It's much nicer to see the scales going down, but I think I will go to taking measurments more regularly now because in a week I lost cms so that is encouraging. But I also must remind myself that I am also getting fitter which is also a plus of doing all my exercise.

Back to the situps, pushups and squats, OMG they are HARD. I'm still in pain from doing them, paticularly the squats, clearly I've not used these muscles nearly enough before now. I've not done them again since because I have been sooooooooooooo sore, but I will, I think I will slot them in between the days I do the C25K which means I'll be doing some form of exercise every day with Sunday being my rest day.

So that's where this week has taken me, lets see what this next week brings, I've been a bit indulgent this weekend I will admit, so I'll be working VERY hard this week to hopefully not see a gain, eating extremely healthily and maybe even saving a few points here and there because I think I will have used more than my bonus points, oops!

See you next week, I'm sure i'll be late with my post AGAIN, because we have a wedding on Friday :D :D

Photos, Pondering and Progress

Ok first things first. Weigh in today and I'm down another 900g, which takes me to having lost 32kgs, 93kgs is my current weight and I have 23kgs to go until I get to my goal. I'll be honest and say I'm a little bit disappointed in 900g, I was hoping for more as I've been good this week and have been doing the C25K program as I'm supposed to, but I'm still happy it was a loss.

I had a little cry today thinking about how far I've come, and it really is a long way. And the fact that I am doing the C25K program even though it's really quite hard, especially considering I've gone from no running to being able to currently run 3 minutes, which is good seeing as I am still curring that extra 23kgs. I've still got a way to go, but I'm really proud of myself for continuing on with it even though it would have been so easy sometimes to just give up. I am still VERY determined to get to my goal, I've come far too far to give up now.

The C25K is going well, I just today completed week 3 day 3 of the program (i'll be honest with some difficulty) and it is getting easier. This week wasn't that easy so I think I will repeat this week next week. But I have made progress, I no longer want to vomit and die when I finish, and today I didn't get the shakes afterwards like I normally do when I finished today, so I have definitely made progress. I will get to the end of the program, not giving up now. Am also thinking about getting some more weights, we've got some but I don't think they're heavy enough, need to get rid of the bingo wings I've got happening.

So, time for some photos. We have another wedding to go to so there are some dress pics too, have decided to go with the black and purple dress :D Oh and the last picture is of my old boardshorts with new boardshorts on topm bear in mind when I first got the first pair the buttons used to pop open, I can fit into one leg of those boardshorts now ;)
