The week-end is almost at an end and I feel exhausted. This has been my weekend to work and I have not enjoyed it at all. What makes it worse is that my hours have been 8 – 3:30pm and as the gym is only opened 8 – 4pm on the week-ends – I could not even make it there. This has pointed out jut how limiting my week-end working roster is. Even if I was to work the morning shift and I would finish at 2:30pm I would still not have enough time to get to the gym as I do not get home until 3:30 at the earliest.
Good news is this didn’t fully stop me today. I got to work earlier than expected, so instead of just sitting at my desk, I went for a walk around town. That added 30 minutes of exercise to my week-end and a workout to the Go-Chica-Go challenge:) have to be happy with that.
In other news I ventured near the scale his morning and was not impressed. My official weight day will not be until next week as I have decided to only record my weight every two weeks – hoping to avoid the fluctuations of the scale.
That being said I still check every now and then. This morning it was up a kilo from last week. I don’t know if this is because I have started a more vigorous exercise program (you know – actually sweating when I work out) or if because I have so much restriction I am not eating enough at the moment and my body just needs to re-adjust. I can not believe that I am eating too much. Not when I look at what I am eating. Friday night I only had one tenderloin from Nando’s with maybe a cup of salad and that was it.
I know one thing I am really going to have to stop is the slider treats I have been having lately. I know, even as I type this; it is history repeating itself. It wasn’t too long ago that I went sugar free for a week to combat the treat binges I was sliding into. And I have been much better, but as I have been a little tight with this wonderful restriction I am currently experiencing I have been having an ice cream block here and there. Okay I will be honest and say that I have had one every day this week, but in my defence…okay I have no defence. It’s a treat I can eat when I am not even hungry. It is all about the decedent taste sensation and knowing I am not going to have any problems with it going down.
So far my journey has not really required a lot of work on my part. I know that is a terrible thing to say, but it is true. Just cutting back on portion sizes and not eating total crap has got me a third of the way to my goal.
I think it has finally begun to sink in that from here on in I am going to have to work on my journey to continue to loss the weight. That is really quite scary. Because now it really is up to me.
