For a reason I am entirely unable to fathom, last week was, how to put it, not the best of weeks. Rather than take you on a guided tour of the smoking ruins of my soul, let's just do the numbers for now. I feel almost up to that.
Lost 0.7kg for the week. Happy with that. I'm now at 80.3 which puts me within reach of the mythical 70's...I'll have a weight that's not going to kill me and a pair of clodhoppers, please.
I am still losing centimetres off my measurements. I am down 3cm chest, 8cm hips and 13cm waist since this all began. I have no idea where all those centimetres scurried away to but I wish them a nice life all the same. Perhaps they're on the Costa Brava sipping cocktails.
My BMI is still not in the healthy range so I am quite aware I still have weight to lose. I'm very much enjoying my new eating patterns but still struggling to get up into my calorie range. I only made it on 4 days out of 7. Yep, you've heard it from me all before. In this case the depressive mood and the lack of appetite that comes with that made it next to impossible. Maybe this week will rain calories :-)
My left foot hurts. I can't find much wrong with it except that it feels tender after I run. Hence I only had 2 runs for the week instead of 4. I replaced the 2 missed ones with Nordic walking, hoping that the poles would reduce some of the weight stress on my feet. I (just) managed to hit my calories burned target of 8400 so the week wasn't a total write-off.
On the positive side, I will be going to Italy in March for the launch of my book (not entirely, I'm a contributor to and editor of the anthology) 'Within These Walls'. Looking forward to seeing some old friends again and hoping that the weather is gosh-darn freezing. Some cold is really what I need right now.
all the best,
