Weekly Weigh in Wk 6/7

I must start this post by making two apologies. The first for the state of my scales. The second for the fact I missed last weeks weigh in , I’ve been on ‘holiday’.

This is back in the right direction again, even though it’s only a small loss. Now I am back home I can get back on to my C25K and also cycling as I’ve just bought a bike!! Exciting times.

Keep safe all.

Couch Potato to 5K

Within 20 minutes of writing my ‘weekly weigh in week 5’ post and saying I needed to do more… I had downloaded the Couch to 5K app and headed out on my first run.

If you have been following from THE beginning you will know that when I first started running ever I literally just ran and only walked when I absolutely had to. Due to my level of absolute zero fitness and weight, I decided to take a different approach this time and see what all the fuss was about with the couch to 5k app. (Available to download at: https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/one-you-couch-to-5k/id1082307672)

It felt horrible but great to be out running once more and although overall I only ran for 8 solid minutes… that was enough for me. The 90 second walks between the 60 second runs were welcome breaks. They even felt a tad too long at points. The only downside was that I had planned my route so my last cycle of running was in the middle of a HUGE hill. Still, it will be a good way of seeing improvement. Only 29mins approx overall but that was better than 29minutes extra sat on my gluteus maximus.

Again, I shall post ‘evidence’ of run completion as I go along as an added spur.

Let me know if you have used/are using this app and if so how you found/are finding it!

Weekly Weigh In Wk 5

Week 5 and although it’s still a couple of pounds – after this long this is not good enough. It is clear that more work is required to help my health and keep losing but at a quicker rate.

First of all – more of a calorie deficit. I have cut down with my food but obviously more is needed.

Secondly – more exercise. I have been going on walks but, again, more is needed. I am still not fit enough to start running (I feel I am too heavy for my already bad knees to take it) however I feel that I must just risk this to try and change things. Also – I have just bought a bike which I shall show you all later. Very excited to go on bike rides soon!

Let’s see how next weeks weigh in fairs!

Weekly Weigh in Wk 3

Up! 5 pounds on this week. What on earth?!

Actually, as much as I wasn’t wanting this to be the case, it was to be expected. This week I have t gone out of my way to do extra exercise. I blame the heatwave which as valid as it may be – could be an excuse.

I’ve also not eaten well in the last couple of days – being my partners birthday and also going elsewhere in the country yesterday driving for the majority of the day so only eating take out food and snacks.

Efforts are needing to be doubled this week to get those ibs back down. No excuses.

Sunday Weigh In Week 2

UNDER THE 18 STONE THRESHOLD.

After a week of cutting down on the food mainly at dinner times and a walk here and there, I’ve managed to knock off a few pounds.

Proof won’t be in the pudding – it will be in if I can maintain or lose this coming week.

I’ve got a recipe and a walk blog I can’t wait to share with you all this week so keep your eyes peeled for those.

Start of the Weigh Ins

I know you shouldn’t weigh yourself constantly and if you build muscle you weigh more than if you have fat. BUT I am still going to do weekly weigh ins for something for me to focus on.

Therefore I shall post my weight weekly to see the fluctuations and, hopefully, results.

As high the number is – here is my first weigh in from yesterday night.

Let’s see how things go!
