Loss – 1.5 kg.
Yes, I am aware that this was a very long week.
Unfortunately due to a nasty case of the flu I was out of action for a few weeks, and I wanted to save the updates until after I’d managed a full week of being able to eat and exercise properly.
This is a good loss, but I’m not sure how my being sick factors in here. My diet wasn’t perfect this week, but it was better, so who knows. We’ll just have to see how I go next week.
Getting back into the exercise after such a break was also a challenge. They say muscles have memory but that sure doesn’t seem to apply to me. I’ve taken a few weeks off, and it’s like starting at square one again! I couldn’t even do a single push-up. It was like a terribly sad scene from the Biggest Loser, a fatty in her tights and singlet lying spent on the ground after doing half a sit up, with out the benefit of a super hot personal trainer yelling “C’mon Voyager, don’t be beaching yourself now!”
In this exercise routine I devised for myself I did allow for situations like this – somewhat – and I took them. I really wanted to stick to it though; otherwise I’ll just keep doing less and less until I give up. That I did – gave myself one day off this week, but otherwise I got through. I had to take a lot of breaks, so it was slow going, but I feel better for it, and will try and go harder next week.
I’ll be aiming for another half kilo next week. Can I do it? Of course. Will I do it? Errr…
Well, keep thinking positive thoughts,
