This week has been pretty up and down with good days and bad days. I’ve indulged a lot, AGAIN! During the week I was expecting to have a little slice of cake with friends, but that didn’t happen so I got mega cravings and ended up eating a lot of chocolate. I’m not proud of that, it was obviously a mistake and I need to think about what I’m going to do if I’m in that situation again. I don’t cope very well with interrupted/cancelled plans at the last minute and usually respond by indulging, especially if the plans included food! But I think next time I will whip myself up something slightly healthier.
Workout-wise, I got in my 3 gym sessions and some walks this week. I really had to talk myself up into doing it after the chocolate binge. I was feeling so demotivated but I’m really glad I pushed through. I’m now lifting a little bit more on the chest press – 18kg +2.3kg. On couch to 5k (I’m on the last “week” and have been for months, it’s about improving my speed now) I have got up to 8.3 speed for the last minute. I always try to build up my speed over the 35 minutes and really go for it in the last minute, and I really feel it!
But I haven’t had much time in the gym to work on my strength training. I would have liked to do more squats and burpees, so hopefully this coming week I’ll get that in!
On to the weekly weigh-in:
So shockingly I managed to lose another 2lb! I’m very grateful and relieved, although before my chocolate indulgence I did cook a few very healthy meals from recipes and was doing well. My body fat is up 0.6%. Hopefully that will go down again next week.
Hope you’ve all had a good week, speak to you soon!
