Day Seven of no excuses. I have walked 3 times this week (4 including today, which I will be going on after breakfast settles). I have watched what I have been eating. I have eaten more fruit, and only had takeaways once. And I have lost....
Wait for it......
Are ya ready....
.2 of a kilo.
FML. You have to be kidding me scale. I put in all that extra work and .2 of a kg is how you reward me?
However, we shall press on.
No excuses shall continue! This week coming I'm going to work in 2 rest days, because one wasn't enough. Walking 5 times a week is plenty. I'm also going to keep further away from the sweets. Even if they fit in my calories they can't be helping.
Also this week I'm going to start C25k....or a version I found.
I'm not sure where I found this, so if anyone recognises it let me know so I can credit the website. I have searched far and wide and I still can't find where I got it from! But I def. didn't make it up!
I like this because C25K looks too confusing and this works better in my brain. It has the same kind of principle, so it should have the same effect. I also like how for the first week it is just 14 minutes. I can do anything for less then 15 minutes!
So the plan for next week is as follows:
Sunday: 3km walk with D1 W1
Monday: 4km walk
Wednesday: 4km walk with D2 W1
Friday: 3km walk (will make it 4 if I'm not going into school, I'm not sure at this stage)
Saturday: 4km walk with D3 W1
Here we go, week 2 of no excuses! Who will join me this week!

Ummm...I didn't work out today. I know, I know, naughty me, what about my week of no excuses. Well, I have excuses and I have reasons for not walking today
1. Monsoon going on outside
2. Tired to the point where I just can't move
3. Wanted to spend time with the boy
So there ya go. I promise I'll go on a nice looooong walk tomorrow to make up for it. And I'll be going in these:
My camera is elsewhere, so for now an internet pic will have to do!
My new shoes Pearl and Mavis, and I think we'll be very happy together. Yes, I named my shoes. I name a lot of things and they always have...traditional names. My cars have been called; Lesley, Gertrude, Mavis (my left shoe is named after this car!) and Hattie.
Anyways, I spent about $40 more then I wanted, but these gave me plently of support where needed (arches and outside of my feet) and they have a 1000km life. And they are purple and sooooo pretty. And comfy. And I'm in love. And they gave me free socks. Tomorrow shall be a nice walk, no worrying about my feet!
Also, I had breakfast late today. Only by about an hour, but it made a difference! I was running late so I ate a banana once I got to school. About an hour later I was shaking uncontrollablly. Lucky I was planning and not in class, so I was able to grab a snack, I had dried fruit. I thought the sugar would help. It did, but it showed me how important it is to make time for breakfast, and to have something more then a banana! Guess I can't do that anymore!

I have 3 pairs of black work pants. One pair mountains too big (stretched out over the years), one fits well and one too small. The pair that fits well feel victim to thigh holes (you know the ones!) and needed to be thrown out. On a whim (and I couldn't find my belt) I tried on the too small ones. And they fit! Not well sitting down, but standing up they are great!
AND I'm down 2.5kg even. That is one sixth of the weight I want to loose!
OK, now I've got energy to burn!

Rest day. I did consider getting up and working out anyway. I set my alarm for 6am and said that if I wanted to get up I would, if not then no pressure. I didn't want to get up, so that was cool, back to sleep I went.
School was horrible today. We did art, which was cool, but I usually feel so together and in control and today I just didn't. I think its because I'm tired.
In other news, I'm tired. Like, can't form sentences or remember where I parked my car tired. I need to weekend like I've never needed a weekend before!
Work tonight, but I'm gonna sign out early and do some work. And probably have some eats there. I...just honestly want to do some comfort eating. One night isn't going to kill me.
Walk tomorrow morning! And tomorrow afternoon I'm getting...wait for it...NEW SHOES! Thanks Mummy, for giving me money to get them! My mummy rocks. I mentioned last night on the phone that I was going to get some sports shoes when we had money and she told me not to wait and that they were on her. Isn't she great? And no, you can't borrow her.

My morning start at 6am. I snoozed, I made excuses and at 6.20 I got up for my walk because I knew I would have to come on here to blog and I would have to say that I had failed at my no excuses week. So up I got, dressed, shoed, out the door. I decided to just do 3km today and I'm glad I did! About a km from home it started pouring down. Rain, hail, cats, dogs. I kept walking (faster at this point) home but I ended up getting soaked. The rain was so hard that it woke up my boyfriend! He stumbled into the lounge, keys in hand ready to drive and look for me just as I walked in the door.
My legs have been really tight and sore after my walks so I am going to try to focus on getting some good stretching in when I get home from them. I usually just do one or two stretches for a couple of seconds and call it good. But this morning I stretched for a good 2-3 minutes and my legs feel fine!
In other news, I was on full control today! The kids were great, I had a great time and art was soooooo much fun! Just need to plan, reflect and...do lots of other teacher stuff. It never ends!
