before and after gym session :)
I’ve been in a unemployment induced funk for about three weeks. Intermittent fasting, not a lot of exercise, low energy levels, the works.
But today was my last day of freedom before new job starts, and I kicked it’s ass.
90 mins of walking (around hagley park in glorious weather, swoon)
0.5km in the pool (30 mins)
40 mins in the gym-
10 mins cross trainer
3 x 10 crunches
5 x 10 4kg biceps curls
4 x 20 leg press!
Officially back on the wagon! I love endorphins and looking forward to work tomorrow :D
I’m wearing one of my favorite shirts, that I haven’t worn in 6 months because it was getting a bit snug last time I wore it.
Today, it’s bigger than when I bought it.
Size 18 is now in my rear view mirror and I’m well on the way to smaller clothes!
Me and my best friend have sworn an allegiance to get out more and have a healthier summer and I can’t wait.
Dinnerrrr, pasta and salad! I did boil some more broccoli but I’m so tired that when I drained it most of it fell into the insinkerator haha. Winning
Took the morning off from swimming because I wanted to cry when my alarm went off.
I’ve been fending for myself at home for over a week now and I have noticed a distinct lack of dinner eating and henceforth a distinct lack of vegetables and henceforth a distinct lack of energy.
I need to reassess my life decisions.
Must jog/walk/something tonight and I’m swimming again in the morning.
I want there to be a noticeable change in my appearance when my family gets home!
I upped my game and changed technique to free style. It tires me out much faster so it’ll get me better results!
I also went out to do day 2 c25k, after not running for about 3 weeks due to a mysterious knee injury. Not a great performance, but who ever regrets going for a run? No one!
Definitely feeling the affects now :)
I just got my first “have you lost weight?” From someone I haven’t seen in 6months.
FUCK YEAH, I’VE LOST 14 POUNDS MOTHER FUCKER. I didn’t actually say that because she’s a sweet lady in her 50’s but I was having a party on the inside.
Endorphin high has worn off
Exhaustion has set in.
Still buzzing on the sense of accomplishment.
I love exercise.
For the first time ever I feel guilty for skipping a meal. I wasn’t home at an appropriate time to eat dinner and I’m finally home and headed straight to bed!
Swim today was good. I was tired and sore and just kept swimming.
I dislike sharing a lane with more than two others. Soooo slooooow.
1.5 lbs loss
-1cm waist and hips!
I’m quite happy that it’s coming off slow and steady, it’s a good time that it’s going to stay off!
I’m a lacto ovo vegetarian, I’ve decided to start make at least two of my meals vegan every day. It’s surprisingly easy, and I feel really good for it :)
This is my motivation mirror! Any message I’ve ever written on my mirror has become my words to live by.
June 19 was the first day I ever counted calories, the first day I started caring about what I put in my body. The last day I spent at my highest weight. No going back :)
I’ve been for a swim two days in a row! I’m totally exhausted and I feel amazing at the same time. all of my muscles ache and I just want sleep forever.
I have my fortnightly weigh in this Sunday. After last week I have no expectations and I’ll be happy with any loss because I can feel my muscles growing! Gonna go popeye all up in this.
