So the clocks went forward at the weekend for Spring and we welcomed that with some typical miserable English weather – bleurgh! So much for getting out on my bike. So spent some more time in the gym. Just for a change. Working off my lumps. Treadmill warm up, then my plan for arms and abs, finished with a treadmill cool down. Arms are jelly again now.
The husband came and ran on the treadmill and even managed to stop to give me a quick kiss – ahhh. Managed to catch a pic mid running – blurry but still funny.
I am still doing my plank challenge and the timing is up to 3 minutes – who thinks these timings up? Crazy fit people that’s who! 3 minutes is an eternity whilst planking! Next month I will do the same but the squat challenge. Bring it on. Lots of squats! Gonna squat til I’m a big booty hoe.
I have been slightly concerned with my food. The reason for this is that although I am being good and sticking to it I am at the gym more and more and so I get back late and tend to eat something quick – I’ve eaten so many eggs I think I may start sprouting feathers! Eating so late made me feel bloated all week. I think if I curled up in a ball someone could have rolled me down my office (that was how I was feeling anyway). Dieting and exercising really requires a positive mind set. I am not sure I was there last week?
When you are not feeling a diet or exercise they both seem like dirty words and make me want to wash my mouth out…….with chocolate.
I need to think of some more things to eat that are quick and healthy to work around my classes. Who said dieting is easy? I mean dieting is easy, it’s like riding a bike. And the bikes on fire. And the grounds on fire. And everything’s on fire because you’re in hell.
And so once again weigh in day came and went and I stayed the same – not going to lie I am disappointed – just want two more for that three stone mark! Next week – it will be next week.
I was getting a tad disheartened with the slow weight loss as I am really working for that stupid half a pound or one pound a week though I do know that slowly is more healthy – I am just an impatient cow. So I had a look at an old photo from the start of all of this and a recent one and I can see the difference:
And so this week I am feeling good and start this morning with a run and have a nice long weekend off work so weather please be nice as I fully intend to ride my bike, a lot. And of course I have cross fit on Thursday that is already putting the fear of god into me but I will update you on that after I have done it and in the meantime will just suck it up so that one day I won’t have to suck it in!
