life update, Weight Loss

Week 4

This week hasn’t gone the way I planned. I originally planned to put this post up on Friday, but I had a bout of food poisoning, so that plan went out the window. I am never ordering another take away pizza as long as I live. I’ll stick to making my own from now on.

I put on a pound this week, but I was expecting that due to it being my time of the month, and I can put on anything up to about five pounds because I bloat so badly. I knew going into it that I was going to put on weight, so I wasn’t upset. I was glad it was only a pound as to be perfectly honest I hadn’t been 100% on plan this week, but I’d say I’d been 90% so it wasn’t anything massive.

This week, going into week 5 hasn’t been brilliant, food poisoning is never the way I want to start my week, especially since I had to cancel my two days away after a couple of hours. Food poisoning and travelling do not mix. Trust me. I spent most of yesterday asleep instead of all the walking around I had planned so I’m going to go for a walk tomorrow to make up the difference.

Another thing that’s changing is that I made the decision, with my mum, to go back and rejoin the gym. We’re both interested in trying yoga. I want to work on my flexibility as its not as good as it should be. I can’t touch my toes, in fact, the nearest I can get is my shins and my calves absolutely scream. Also, with the gym we join, when you join, you can use the pool, the gym and do as many classes you want a week. I’m not a huge fan of swimming, I get too self conscious.

I love the gym, however and that’s my plan for right now. Building up my fitness is my main priority. I’ve never been the fittest person but with not working and going out and about, its gotten worse. When I get fitter and lose some more weight, I’m going to look at going to Zumba and body combat classes. Right now, I’m just working on slowly and surely building up my fitness by going for walks.

So, my plan for the next few days until I get weighed on Thursday is

  • Go out for a walk every day, at least half an hour.
  • Drink at least 2 litres of water a day
  • Eat more fruit and veg, think about speed food.
  • No more indulging in things that aren’t good for me.

I’m still feeling confident, I just need to go back to writing down everything I eat as I eat it, because that helps me be accountable to myself.
