Exercise

I had set myself a goal last monday to deliberately exercise every day. I did it Mon, Tues, Thurs. Pretty slack effort really. I lost 0.6kgs last week.

So, trying again this week. Last night I got on the treadmill during Biggest Loser. I swear, watching those folks sweating their asses off, and hearing them talk about an hour of cardio at 5:30am every morning to start their day, makes one feel lazy! I got on the treadmill at only 4.0kms/h and did 15 mins – holy shit, the sweat was literally running off every part of me! Why is it so much harder than walking down the street? After that I got on the exercise bike and did 5 mins there too. Damn I was buggered!

Think I’ll go round the block a few times instead tonight!

MIA again

Again I’ve been missing in action.  Have had some HUGE things happening in my life that has thrown me completely for six.  Out of the park stuff.  But I can’t talk about that here – well not yet anyway.

So, I worked out my scales are wrong and I’m really heavier than I thought.  Last week I started the channel ten one million kill challenge with a few folks from my email group.   I started at 170.1 and lost 1.1 in the first week, even though I had a not so good weekend.  This week I mad a commitment to exercise every day.  My step count for Monday was 6040, and yesterday was 8520.  Food has been good too.  Think I’m gonna start writing my food in here again too.

Ok, that’s it for now.

Disappointed

I think my scales are wrong and that put a huge damper on my motivation since last friday.  My scales initially showed 166 point something, meaning I had put on, and I was cranky about that – so I pulled the battery out and put it back in and then got on again and i was 169.  That of course made me even more pissed off! 

So later in the day I got on Mum’s scales and I was 170.1, then two days later on my sister’s and yep, you guessed it, 171!!  So that was like a kick in the teeth and I have to admit to feeling pretty down about it.  I haven’t bothered with exercising and have been slack with everything else.  Its nearly the end of Jan and I have done sweet FA.  I’m booking in for another fill.

Feeling motivated

I woke up late this morning and didn’t get to do the treadmill.  Tonight however, I grabbed the dog and went for a walk with her, for 20 mins.  Feeling like I’m finally on the right track again. 

Sorry for the short entries – using my tablet to update… I love this thing! Lol

A few good days

Ok, I’m on a roll now!  Tues night didn’t treadmill because I stayed at Mum’s place with my daughter.  This morning I did ten mins again, but increased the speed to 5kms for two mins.  Tonight I increased the time and did fifteen mins.  Feeling good 🙂

Doing it

I have downloaded the word press app for my android powered motorola xoom…. so using this now.

Last night I got on the treadmill for ten mins at 4km/h.  I know that is slow and not very long, but it nearly killed me!  So I got up this morning and did it again.  I figure the time will increase and its better than doing nothing

Why can’t I get my shit together?

Had a bad second half to the week. Why on earth can’t I get my shit together? Lost 0.5kgs, but even that is pissing me off. I made myself a spreadsheet for January with all of these things I’m trying to track – staying on track food-wise, alcohol, coke, coffee, water, steps – as well as the pain in my back and knees. I keep looking at it and seeing where I have fallen down. It’s nowhere near how I wanted it to look!

On a positive note, while I did have a drink this weekend (well 5 – lol) it was not as much as I would ordinarily drink, so that’s good. I’m pretty much staying off the coke and coffee – maybe one per week. I’m making sure I drink between 8-10 glasses of water each day. I’m not doing much on the step count, and I’m eating too much food, and too much shit food.

Ok, tomorrow is a new day. I’ve bought a couple of boxes of Opti-slim again and I’m going to have those for breakfast AND dinner this week, with something for lunch – like Tuna and salad. And I swear, I’m going to specificially go for a walk at least three times this week. I know I need to have another fill – must need just a small smidge, but that can make a difference. I’m going to make myself a deal that I will go get a fill when I get down to 150kgs – I know I can do that on my own. Need to do some hard yards through the next two weeks so the month is not a total write-off… then kick some ass in February. I figure I can get down to 150 by the end of March.

On another positive note, my knees are improving daily – for the past week the pain has really only gotten up to about 2-3 out of 10, not sure what is making it go away, but damn I’m happy about it! And my back pain is reducing as well, most nights I’m staying in bed until at least 3:30am, sometimes right up to 5am.

Time to get my shit together.
