I’m back and believe it or not, my weight hasn’t really budged since June, mainly since this is my own damn fault for not staying on track, not watching what I eat and generally not caring either.
In case you’re interested, this is my life from October. I decided to return to the gym and get my A into G. Weight was 86.something kilos (that’s 189lb) and between May and October, I managed to lose 1mm of body fat. Go me!! I was doing really well… until exams came up in November, along with NaNoWriMo (national novel writing month). Not much happened after that. I got back on the bandwagon in December after DH and I decided to go back to the US for a holiday next year. I got some goals now, some tangible goals that I think will work. Those have been updated in the goal section.
I’ve started a couch to 5K running program and am my own cheerleader (sans the cute little outfit because I can’t fit my fat arse into one). Week 4, Day 1 looks something like this: 5 minute warmup at 6k/h; 3 minute jog/run at 8.5k/h; 1.5 minute walk at 6k/h; 5 minute jog/run at 8.5k/h; 2.5 minute walk at 6k/h; 3 minute jog/run at 8.5k/h; 1.5 minute walk at 6k/h; 5 minute jog/run at 8.5k/h; 3.5 minute walk at 6k/h and 1 minute cooldown (31 minutes total). I enjoyed it. Weird to think that I would enjoy running: she-who-would-not-run-unless-chased.
I need to have my measurements updated starting in January; despite what happened over Christmas. I don’t normally slide backwards and will be happy if I managed to maintain what my last measurements were.
