What’s gone well?
I’m really pleased with my weight loss this week. I’ve been exercising really hard using my new training app (more about that soon) and have found it pretty easy to stick to eating healthily.
Unbelieveably, I’ve managed to ‘run’ (more like a steady plod really) two 5km distances this week. I’m not loving the running aspect of the training so far but I know that I soon will once I get back into it properly.
Despite eating out a couple of times this week, including on a fantastic day out in London taking my mum to see The Lion King, I managed to make sensible choices and avoided the temptations of desert on boths occassions.
What’s been difficult?
I’m finding tracking difficult. I’m not sure why. I seem to have some kind of mental block. I did ok with it up until Friday and then it went out of the window. I still had the plan in the front of my mind but I just didn’t write anything down. I don’t really know why. I had time and I’m determined to eat healthily. It’s a puzzle.
The week ahead
I’m planning on sticking with my training programme this week as well as trying a new circuits class this evening. I’ve got to increase my run to 6km for one of the two this week and I’m quite looking forward to that. I’m going to add the extra 1km to the beginning part of the route so that in my head, I’m doing the extra before I get tired.
My biggest challenge this week is going to be spending a girls’ weekend in Liverpool. I’m really going to try hard to track so that it will hopefully help to keep me focused. I’m going to take my trainers and running gear with me too so that I can complete this weekend’s run along the waterfront.
I’ve also set myself a mini-target of losing another 4lb by the time I go on holiday which will take me back into the 12st bracket. I’m hoping that this small but achieveable target will help me to stay on track.
Wish me luck. And if you’ve got any idea about why I hit a block with tracking at the weekend, please let me know!
