This week is tough
Thursday, June 21, 2012
So father's Day was on sunday and I succumbed to a roast dinner plus pavolova and profiteroles for dessert! Then on Tuesday I had a slice of chocolate cake but so far that's all the sugar that I've consumed. I've stuck to good foods, I've been running each morning before work (except today where I'll do it after work) and yet I've gone up by half a pound. I'm sticking to my guns and I believe that if I keep doing what I'm doing (minus the cake and roast) then I'll have lost before the Sunday weigh in. I even cancelled on a friend and decided not to go out for an all you can eat and drink session because damnit! I want to lose weight this week!
My fitness is improving again. It's amazing how quickly our bodies adjust to what we're doing. I can't believe how I let myself go from being able to run for 30 minutes (not fast, but still actual running) and now I've had to start C25K all over again because I'm that unfit! I'm on week4 starting today. I am cheating slightly by trying to fit 2 weeks of the programme into one week and I'm running on a higher speed than I was as I really want to improve faster. I figure if those on the Biggest Loser can work out everyday then I should be able to as well.
Actually I factor in one rest day a week because I need it! My knees are starting to feel sore and I get twinges of pain in them during the day so the hyperchondriac in me worries that running at my weight is wearing them down much faster than normal! It doesn't stop me though, I've wasted the whole year so far and I need to get a handle on this before I move back home in 5 weeks. I don't mind going home at the same weight I was last year but not heavier.
Not HEAVIER dang it!
Another reason this week is tough (cover your eyes gentlemen) is because it's TOM time for the second time in two weeks! Sometimes I hate having PCOS. I wondered why I was so unbelievably tired and possessed by the sudden urge to swim. I have no idea why the two are linked but I'm always gripped by a fierce desire to do lengths in a pool right before TOM arrives.
Lastly, it's Thursday today hurrah for weekend tomorrow!!! I am having Reiki with a good friend of mine and have nothing else planned for the rest of the day. It's wonderful to have no plans and I am definitely looking forward to it! Much reading and sorting out will be done.
Happy weekend sparkers!
