Right time for the bad news!!
Weight: 13 Stone 5Lbs (+3lbs)
So in theory I've put on 3lbs! In reality I'm just heavier because I'm now weighing myself in the evening. I am heavier but I'm not going to take this lying down. I will be weighing myself in every Monday after Work (roughly 6pm) and will stick to it. There may be another bump in the road when I receive my digital scales but hopefully after that I will be able to see my BMI and fat ratios etc etc. Much more accurate!
Arms: 12.6" (-0.4")
Chest: 35" (Same)
Waist: 32" (+1")
Stomach: 41" (+1")
Thighs: 23" (same)
Calf: 17" (+1")
So not the best week measurements wise but again not gonna let it get me down. Been a trying first week!
Things to discuss and/or consider...
I've managed to do all my exercises, which I'm quite pleased with.
What didn't work?
I didn't keep to my calories at all, need to get motivated in this area again.
What can you not wait to do again?
I can't wait to run 2km again and even further!
What are you never going to do again?
I won't try and stop eating bread all together. I don't eat a lot as it is! So it was a bit silly!
Discuss your biggest obstacles and how you over came them.
My biggest obstacle is the food. I see all my friends eating nice things and find myself saying oh one or two won't hurt!! I think I'm deluding myself.
Did you receive enough support? Or do you need/ want more support?
Everyone on the Blog is being really supportive. My support at home is waning, so I may talk to them and tell them I'm struggling etc. It may help. My friend Nikki and I are talking about it, which helps. It would be great if I could find someone in the area, who is trying to do the same thing.
Week 2 Goals
Stick to Calories as much as possible.
Feel positive. Do some visualisations on goals etc
No Chocolate (after last weeks Choc Fest)
Try the eating with alternative hand challenge
So all in all I'm going to take a leaf out of Maren's book and remain positive. I can do this, no matter how long it takes.
On another note
I'm currently suffering from an injury. I suffer from a tight calf muscle in left leg, which is currently active and causing me a lot of pain. I've realised why it's happening, I'm not stretching enough after my runs :( Silly Emily! I know!
So I didn't exercise yesterday because of it and probably won't for a few days. I'm trying to not get down about it. What exercise can I do that won't put strain on my leg?
Also any remedies? I'm currently stretching it out every 3 hours ish. A friend is also going to massage it this weekend (She's doing a course in sports massage).
Thanks to you all,
