Weight Loss Wednesday Linky – Week 27 #WeightLossWednesday

Welcome to Weight Loss Wednesday week 27!

Seriously, if I could write about everything that has happened in the last week, you would no doubt be reading this post all day long, but at least you would be entertained… so let’s stick to the fitness side!

After flouncing out of the gym on Thursday due to 4 treadmills being out of service and everyone else just walking on theirs, I decided it was time to run outside.

Connecting my Suunto Ambit3 Run with the Suunto Movescount app and Strava via Bluetooth (very handy indeed!), I snuggled into my Flip Belt and my running gear and off I went…

Oh how different running outside is to running on a treadmill. My body is totally conditioned to running on a treadmill now and I was not prepared at all for the change in gradient or simply running on a different terrain.

Within 2 minutes I found myself having to walk, simply as the path I was running on is a very well concealed uphill route. Running back down was awesome and I even managed to get a 5.55 minute kilometer… it really just is not sustainable though. With the race this Sunday, I need to pull something out of the bag – 5km is do-able, I just need to ease my pace outside as I was running far quicker than I do on a treadmill… I need a pacer! The Suunto was epic to use though and every detail was recorded. I must have spent an hour analysing all the data… I even gave the thumbs up to another runner and she returned one… πŸ˜‰

Food wise, I have been continuing on the New You Plan and despite a 3lbs gain last week from planned blips, despite having two days off over the weekend due to going out and having a night on the town and eating very sensibly on the Saturday… my weight loss this week has beenΒ 6lbs! I am now at my lowest weight for a VERY long time and am 4lbs away from losing 3 stone this year.


To say I am elated is an understatement and after purchasing another 3 weeks of the New You Plan, I am hoping to get as close to my target set at the start of the year as possible.

Sheer determination, motivation and just being totally in the zone have got me this far… if I can do it… so can you!

Seriously!! Outside is SO MUCH DIFFERENT!!! I feel like its harder on the joints and muscles!! Kudos to you for making it so far!! I was a strict treadmill runner just for the ease!! That darn asphalt gave me shin splints every time!!

I feel you! Once you venture outside it’s like starting over again!

Can’t do the running, but love walking outside and taking in all the sights, sounds and experiences!

Looks like you are doing great! Wish I was good at running – I’m just not built for it!

Glad to hear that you are happy with your progress in your health and fitness program. The success of a program like this is really very much dependent on your own dedication and satisfaction. Now, what about those other entertaining things that happened last week? πŸ™‚

hahah! I understand how you feel about that switch from the treadmill to the great outdoors! It’s like a little shock to the system – but it gets fun when you get use to it!

You are doing a great job and you look awesome. I guess it was good that the treadmill wasn’t working. You got to run and enjoy the outdoors.

I did hear that it was hard to run outdoors when you’ve been to the treadmill for quite some time already. But now that you’ve found out about, you can begin to prepare yourself for the outdoors, right? πŸ™‚

Congrats and thanks for the linky!

Wow, 3 stones this year is amazing – well done! I remember when I first ran outside that I ran a lot faster than I should’ve. It’s a difficult thing to adjust when you’re on your own. Good luck with the race hun. Brilliant weight loss this week too! Go you.

S1m July 14, 2015 - 5:23 pm

Oh yes, I definitely need a pacer! The Suunto was a godsend! You too have had a fantastic year – go and have a fab holiday and look forward to hearing about it on your return! πŸ™‚ xx

I just starting running and hope to get fit. Keep up the good work.
