….but we are all fabulous.
OK, 5 weeks into my fitness plan. Eagle eyed observers will see that I have not done any running, but instead am walking a lot. This has mainly been because it has provided my OH and I wonderful time together away from our desks to chat. I don’t know about you, but talking while walking flows in a way that is wonderful and dynamic and is somehow more enjoyable than chatting over dinner. So a boost to mental as well as physical wellbeing 🙂
So here are the stats for weeks 4 and 5.
Week 4 I managed to relose the pound I gained last week which was very welcome 🙂
w/c 17th May 2015
|Exercise (type & mins)||Alcohol (units)||Weight|
|End of last week||13’0 (37.5)|
|Sunday||Walk (90 min)||0||13’0|
|Monday||Walk (45 min)||0|
|Wednesday||Walk (60 min)||0|
|Friday||Walk (60 min)||0||12’13|
|End of week||4/7 (255)||0 units||-1|
In week 5, I lost another pound and also started to introduce meditation practice into my week. A bit of a slow start, but better than no start at all 🙂
w/c 24th May 2015
|Meditate (mins)||Exercise (type & mins)||Alcohol (units)||Weight|
|End of last week||12’13|
|Sunday||Walk (40 min)||0||12’13|
|Monday||Walk (60 min)||0||13’0|
|Thursday||15 mins||Walk (50 min)||0||12’13|
|Friday||Walk (60 min)||0|
|End of week||2/7||4/7 (180 min)||0 units||-1|
In week 6 I imagine I will lose weight if only because of my forthcoming colonoscopy (gulp) on Wednesday. After 24 hours of reduced eating and laxatives I will pretty fed up if there isn’t a weight loss silver lining!
An alcohol update – I am increasingly enjoying being alcohol free and getting far fewer ‘wine o’clock’ cravings. Having mentally committed to beating my last stretch of 40 days without wine (which I reach on Thursday), I have now mentally extended my goal to the end of June. There will be a few challenges – a weekend away with friends, some external examiners meals out, but I’ll give it a shot.
Thanks for reading 🙂
