What a week! It's been filled with Island hopping, camping, drinking, laughing, lunch with mum and granny, bus journeys, working, working out, trainer buying, eating and more drinking.
So it's been a good week for fun life stuff. Not such a good week for dieting stuff.
Thursday was pretty good. Friday, in the face of some mahooosive challenges was amazing. A whole load of people (some I know and some I don't) were getting the Ferry over to one of the UKs' lovely islands. What do you always get at a harbour? A chippie! Everyone was digging into fish suppers and chips, left right and centre. Me? I had brought a chicken salad with me and ate that (inbetween polishing my halo). Very pleased with myself.
I wish I could say the rest of the weekend followed suit. There were some victories in amongst the mistakes. I did as promised and avoided the cooked breakfast and stuck to cereal and fruit. The rest of the meals weren't too bad but I drank far too much, ate quite a bit of chocolate and also cheese on one occasion. It was definitely the healthiest I've eaten at one of these events for a long time - but it is going to be good enough to see a loss on Saturday, my final weigh in before holiday?
I got back home on Tuesday morning and all I can think about is exercising as much as possible before Saturday's weigh in so I can hopefully lose 1.5lbs and hit the stone lost mark.
Tuesday might I did 45 mins of cardio interspersed with lunges with weights, squats, chest weights, tricep dips. Last night I donned my new trainers (more on that soon) and went out for a 5k. Almost 7km and 45mins later I got back home. Two amazing things about that run. 1. It's the longest run I've done in probably about 2 years. 2. I did not stop once! I just kept going! I was so pleased with myself.
Tonight it's a 45 minute bodypump class so I'll try and tag some cardio onto the back of that too.
Right- have screeds of work to do before I piss off on my hollybags so best fark off and get on with it.
