Today really was the day to be pumped up and on one… it certainly paid off at the gym which is epic for weight loss and fitness. I was able to increase my running speed by .5 to 9.5kph and increased my arm weight reps by 10. I was feeling the burn today so to speak but clearly my fitness levels must be increasing for me to be able to push myself that little bit more. It may have been the sight of ‘Gym Newbie‘… he is still there! He is weird, he climbed on a treadmill, set it for 30 mins and got off after 1 minute and then decided to aimlessly walk around the gym. Turnip!
I’ve managed to stick to my 3 weekly gym visits which is certainly aiding my running, my legs are less tired, my breathing seems to be ok however my knee seems to a bit wavy at the moment so, after the last time I sprained I will be keeping my eye on it.
Disaster struck this week when my beloved FitBit Flex died… literally died… no lights on at all! My wrist has never felt as naked not wearing my FitBit, I didn’t realise how much I had come to rely on it. Wearing a step tracker definitely motivates you to move more than you normally would! Crisis averted though and I am now sporting this stunning turquoise FitBit (lovely bold colour!) and am back to normal tracking again. *Relief*
Eating, meh, I have been hit and miss this last week. Some days have been good days – yesterday I had soup for dinner, some days not so good and I may have had one more Penguin bar than I should have done. However… all in all, I have still lost 1lb this week, taking my back to my Week 6 weight – with a 12lb loss overall! Not bad going considering I have not actually been following any particular diet the past couple of weeks and Sour Cream and Chive pretzels have made their way into my belly! 😉 I am on it this week though, those last 2lbs are annoying me now… bring it!
The Dukan Diet 2 book keeps winking at me, I really need to sit down and pay it some attention. The new 7 Steps Dukan diet is a gentle way to lose weight without giving anything up. I noticed MadHouse Family Reviews had been considering the diet and is currently trying the diet. It all seems to be going well and with her positive attitude to the diet, it certainly makes me want to give it a try. Day 1 is simply protein… just a day of eating meat. This could be the greatest diet ever!! Watch out for more info on it!
Enough about me though… how are YOU getting on this week… the weather is warming up, Spring is in sight, the clothes are looser… let’s do this!! Keep the love going and feel free to comment and tweet @SimsLifeBlog #WeightLossWednesday 🙂
