Note to Self….

13 Jul


Its been a while since I last blogged and this blog is a note to myself to remind that I should blog regardless of where my weight loss is at. Good or bad.

My last blog post I had lost 1.5lbs and my weight was 15st.11lbs. That was on the 14th June.

A month later lets see where I have been week by week.

21st June another 2lbs off, that took me to 15st9lbs

28th June, I stayed the same

05 July 1lbs on. Back up to 15st 10lb

This week, 12th June, another 0.5lb on

Current weight is 15st.10.5lbs

Not good enough really.

I’ll fill you in on what’s been happening.

1st July I did my 10k Race for Life. It was amazing. I beat my personal best and completed the race in 1hour, 5 mins, 27 second. Happy couldn’t even begin to describe it. When I signed up for the race it was because I needed incentive to exercise and help stay in track. It had been a long 6months getting to that point. A real journey.I’m so glad I did it. The question is, what next? More on that later.

The week after the run I was very tired and run down. I didn’t exercise at all and ate badly. I didn’t track, so having only put on 1lb I could handle that. I know that WW works and how to make it work.

This past week has been a different story. I was sick. I think it was food poisoning but the effects have lasted all week and In fact I haven’t been able to eat properly at all.

Some people close to me have said it might have been a virus as this thing really wiped me out. I was sleeping badly, waking up so nauseous and feeling so ill through out the day. No energy at all.
I thought having eaten so little, I must have lost weight, but nope, another 0.5lb on. Not really sure how or why but I don’t have the energy to challenge it.

So today! I am at day 1. Today is the day I go back to basics. track track track with a vengeance. Exercise starts again today and a new mini goal has been set!

The aim is to be under 15stone by 30th August weigh in. That’s 6 weeks to lose 11lbs. A safe rate to lose weight is 2lbs per week so this is a doable goal if I apply myself, which I absolutely can.

The aim after that is to be under 14stone by the end of October, but I’ll begin to cross that bridge when I get to the end of August.

The Saturday night before I got sick I was out with my friend who is one of the fittest, hottest girls I know. Coming up for 18 months ago now I found out about her journey and she is the person who made me realise I can achieve this and I know she wants me to succeed so I’m not going to fail her on this.

As always I am looking for people who want to run with me around the Lewisham/Blackheath area. Weekday evenings mainly and Sundays, but not Thursdays.

My next exercise goal is a half marathon. There is the Nike Run to the Beat half Marathon in October. I might give that a go, but I’m scared. 13miles is a lot more than 6. I would need a proper training plan. What do you all think?

Promise I wont leave my next post so long. I love it when you all hassle me to do more, so don’t be shy and if you think you can help me, I’m so open to ideas. Get in touch.

    that’s crazy. usually during illness weight comes off! your body must’ve gone into preservation mode

    they say trying to make your body get pass the ‘rememberance’ and ‘shock’ phase is the hardest part meaning double the effort. annoying but…

    keep it going. you take a step forward and a step it will come towards you

      Hey Nii. Think I ate so little that it had the opposite effect. It’s been put right this week though so in happy.

    Im no professional, but I imagine you just made the best point. You obviously fully understand what youre talking about, and I can really get behind that. Thanks for being so upfront and so honest.

Go on, write something :-)
