Update on my journey :-) 60 lbs in 9 weeks
Friday, November 02, 2012
I started my spark journey ont he 3rd of September 2012 and have been working hard for last 9 weeks. Weighed in today to see another 5lb gone and a total of 60lbs in 9 weeks vanished. I am having to work hard for every single one of them pounds. lol
When i started i was 23stone 13lbs.. (Scary considering was always healthy until a car crash prevented my sports and also diagnosed with almost no thyroid (On medication now to try help)).
I have a picture form this morning that shows the scale now showing my weight at 19stone 7lbs.. Still massive to where i aim to be and should be but its 4stone 7lbs lighter that i was just over 2 months ago so am very pleased.
I must say it has been hard work but i am enjoying every minute i am exercising, the pain seems to bring me confort that im working hard enough.
I have also split to my partner who messed me over a little bit several weeks back, this was very hard to take as the 2 children i had brought up as my own. One from birth are now out of my life.. This would have been a good excuse to lapse in the circumstance, but instead i used it as fuel to set the fire in my heart to push harder and work out longer.
I am now on average working out 4-6 hours a day depending when i have my actualy 3 year old daughter. When i dont have her its swim 1.5 - 2 miles each morning before work and 3.5-4 hrs in the gym on weights and cardio in evening, i am quite an intense in the gym as like to know ive given my all.
I am still sticking around the 1500 calories which seems to work for me, the important thing for me is im drinking 12-14 glasses of water each day to replace all the fluid im losing during working out.
I must say this is a life time commitment to myself as many of my wonderful spark friends have convinced me i am worth it.. Thank you all.. Much appreciated..
I am looking forward to seeing where i am in another 9 weeks as it will be around christmas and new year time.. I still plan on doing same workout every day the gym is open and not buying things i shouldn't eat, apart from bits for when i have daughter..
Well Thanks again and sorry if my long droaning blog has bored you to sleep rather than inspired you..
