Welcome to the Weight Loss Wednesday linky – Week 20!
Thank you so much to those who have linked up so far, throughout the last 20 weeks – everyone’s journey is completely different, every diet, exercise plan and overall target, but the support has been the same no matter what. I appreciate all the lovely, motivating comments I have received and hope you feel that linking up is helping you on your journey too!
Right, soppy stuff out of the way *ahem*, let’s crack on with this week.
Last week, I gave myself the week off to ‘right’ myself, it gave my knee a much needed and deserved rest and also appears to have healed my kidney and back pain… awesome! Going back to the gym after a week off though was very challenging. as legs feel like they do not wish to move and you feel all out of sync. Monday was made easy by the fact I was running in my new trainers, choosing a half size larger seems to have paid off and numb toes are a thing of the past. I am still struggling to beat the 3k mark though – I’m hoping that a run out in the great outdoors will see to this later in the week, when I finally venture outside in the continued quest to train for Race For Life!They finally arrived and are even more colourful than expected!
Eating, it had been ok… until my evening meal last night, when I totally gave in after what felt like an endless day and ordered a takeaway. Having been good, I’m angry with myself for relenting but nothing was going to motivate me to cook… I had reached the ultimate mental block and I literally CBA. I really do not want to step back into old habits again so really need to give myself a talking to. Lots of water and black coffee has been consumed this last week – with a little unexpected hiatus on Saturday – a few more bottles of wine were consumed than expected as a friend had recently finished her final year Uni exams… celebrating was definitely on the cards and I thoroughly enjoyed it!
I feel that I have been trying to walk upwards on a downwards travelling escalator recently and albeit I have lost recently, I am annoyed I am not losing more and then go and screw it up… like having a takeaway the night before weigh in! I should point out that before the takeaway for dinner, I hadn’t actually eaten all day… I know! I know! I will never listen! Weight loss this week has not changed… yet – am sure the takeaway will have some effect but I am going to take that and eat better, healthier foods this week… and stay away from alcohol!
If only Morgan Freeman could voice a podcast for healthy eating, I would be there!
How are you getting on this week? How are you managing to keep on track?
