Had a wonderful weekend with friends staying here.
Enjoying each others company both in our home and at restaurants.
But however great a time you have - it is hard to really focus on the weightloss and the tracking of food and exercise. I tried to make smart choices and I think I did, most of the time.
Anyhow, they have left and I try to get back on track with this. Sorry to say I donīt feel the energy pumping for getting on with it, but I guess that if I just hang in there the motivation has to come back to me. Hopefully!
Went for a bit of a hiking in the mountains again today. We had a lovely warm and sunny day.
Just feel that something is missing. Maybe the body has not recovered totally from the cold?!
As I told you, this year could have started better, but now Iīm almost fit for fight again.
Took it really easy the days I felt sick. Went for slow walks and that was it. (Well - to be honest i did do some reps with the weights - that doesnīt work the heart as hard as cardio).
Today I went for a real cardiowalk AND IT FELT GREAT! The sun was shining, I had a nice beat on my player and I had no problem getting up the steep hills.
Iīve been struggling with the scaleobsession and havenīt stepped on it for some time. It only gives me higher numbers than I think can be fair.
Today however, after several days feeling sorry for myself and not working out at all, it told me Iīve actually lost a little... nice surprise!
So now I only have one kilo to get rid of til the end of the month. Feels doable if I stay well.
I wanted to begin the new year with all I could give.
But here I am - sick!
Feeling very sorry for myself and donīt have the energy to do anything.
Trying not to totally stress out because of all the exercise Iīm missing but itīs not easy.
Thought I could make todays bootcamp-video but it turned out to be a cardio, and since Iīve got a temperature I donīt think thatīs a good idea.
I even skipped joining this weeks challenge from "Just-do-it" team as I donīt think Iīll be able to do much this week.
3rd of january and this is how I feel. Blaaaaaaaaaah!
Itīs easy to think that nothingīs happening when the scale seems to be locked at a number and it doesnīt matter what you do - it just doesnīt change.
Here are some signs that Iīm heading the right way:
1. I have a lot more energy. Donīt need the alarm anymore.
2. The pants are too big.
3. I am stronger. The other day I did a kickboxing session that I remembered as really hard
the last time I did it. This time I waited for the tough part all hour - it never came!
Very happy when I realised I must have gotten so much stronger in these months.
4. I have adjusted my eating.
Yesterday we went into town and had a buffet for lunch.
I tried to eat smart. Soup. Grilled vegetables. A tiny slice of vegetarian pizza. Put together
it was of course way too much anyhow - and boy did I feel that! I felt sick for hours
afterwards. This would not have been the case some time ago... I could have had a
Even though I felt sick it made me proud of myself - it was a reminder of how far I really
have come in the "changing of lifestyle"- work. And Iīm pretty sure I wonīt dig in to a meal
like that again any time soon!
5. I get thirsty.
The first weeks with SP I struggled getting those eight cups of water down every day!
It felt like I had to drink an ocean. But it was part of the plan and you get the points for it so
I emptied them each day, and every day was a victory!
Today - 2 months later - I get thirsty and have no problem drinking more than eight cups.
For two months work I think Iīve come quite a long way. Just waiting for the scale to humor me...
I always slept like a baby and thatīs way Iīve been so irritated and annoyed the last two weeks or so. Waking up in the middle of the night or early morning because Iīm hungry - what is this!??
Iīve never experienced this in my life before. Yes - I usually am very hungry in the mornings but during the night???
So Iīve been up and eating eggs, biscuits and a lot of other things easy to get in the mouth and return to bed.
I couldnīt go on like this so I made some research here on SP.
First I understood that my calorie intake was to low and put them up AGAIN, doesnīt feel great but if the body wants it then itīs getting it. Anything to make me sleep!
Well this worked so-so, I didnīt wake up as early as I had the nights before but still too early.
Then I got some advice about eating something just before turning in, so I īve been having hot cocoa and cheesesandwiches almost every night for a week.
This works ok, but itīs kind of funny having this each day trying to lose weight, and I fear the result.
The last thing I found was that I might be working out to hard.
It was the classic symptom of the body being to tired!
What am I to do? Eating more and exercising less - is this the road to weightloss I ask myself? If it is - how come I did fail before...
