Ok update time.
I now approach the end of the third week since I started hitting the Gym every day I can and I still haven’t lost any weight. But that may not mean that I’m failing. You see I am now standing straighter and can lift more on the weight machines. My gut also looks a little smaller and my one off 5 and a half kilometer stint has now become my norm.
My fitness is slowly progressing and I hope by the end of week 5 that I will be able to make it 6Km in the same amount of time. The most noticeable change however is my breathing. Its becoming deeper and more prolonged as I run. This is prof positive that I’m getting fitter and fitter despite what the scale thinks of me.
Still, in saying all this and keeping positive about my progress, I would have expected to have lost at least a couple oh Kg by now. It is a little disheartening that watching my calorie intake and regularly exercising is having little effect on my weight. But I press on.
Next week I will face one of my biggest challenges so far as I will be away for work for three days and have little to no Gym options where I’m going. Plus after driving for at least 4 hours each day I feel I’ll have little energy left to put much effort in. However I’m putting a few exercises I can do in my motel rooms together so I will report back next week on how I went.
I think my biggest enemy next week will be food. As My schedule is tight it will be hard to avoid drive throughs and eat responsibly. I am planning to at least deal with the snack issue before I set off with prepared healthy goodies to nibble on and extra water bottels.The important thing is to stay positive and not end up getting down on myself if I eat something I shouldn’t. That will likely lead to a full binge rather than a little deviation.
Well thats all for this post. Remember to keep getting off the couch.
