After seeing pictures of me this week I cannot believe the size I have let myself get to. It’s embarrassing.
No wonder I’m still single.
I am going to run every single day until I get down to the weight I want.
I am so depressed. I even cut today. I thought that I would grow out of this phase. I don’t think a phase lasts for 10 years though…
One goal down!
I ran 5k.
That’s right. It’s taken me less than a month to reach one of my all time goals. I can actually run 5k and not stop. AND AND AND do it under 40 minutes.
I am crazy proud of myself. I was knackered afterwards though.
My next goal I think will be just to run a further 1km every time I decide to run a 5k and before I know it I’ll probably be able to run 10km :)
Friday Fat Day
I finally booked a doctors appointment, I need to find out what this bloating thing is and whatever the hell is up with my knee all this time.
Friday is my non-conscious food day. I can eat whatever I want and not feel guilty. I’ve had chocolate cookies today and will have a pizza with friends tonight, including my old housemate who I haven’t seen since December (even though it still feels like I saw her yesterday).
So yeah…not a diet day today.
However, tomorrow I’m going to the gym and I will run 5k. That is my goal. I think my next running goal will be 6k after that but I’m not going to rush it. I want to live off running 5k successfully for a while lol.
I really thought I’d lose more weight be going to the gym this much. I just really need to improve my eating even more. I can do it, I just need more willpower. I’m already a more healthy eater than I was a month ago so at least I’ve progressed.
I. RAN. 4. K.
YOU HEARD, I RAN 4K. I actually ran it all and did it in half an hour.
I am so proud of myself.
My aim to be able to run 5k is actually in target. It’s hard to do it in the morning as I like to get in resistance as well. I only have about 50mins work out time and don’t want to use it all up on just running.
On Saturday I aim to run 5k, on a treadmill.
I will be so pleased if I manage it. This time a month ago I was pleased with about 2k.
Yay, go me!
3 REASONS “GETTING SKINNY” IS THE WRONG MOTIVE
1. BEING SKINNY ISN’T SPECIFIC ENOUGH
Your subconscious mind works in strange ways.
When you set goals, you have a much better chance of succeeding, when those goals are very specific. For example, stating your goal as, “I…
Such a good little article. Motivational but realistic
Why am I so bloated all the time?
I have an hourglass waist, so it goes in at the sides, but on the front there’s just this massive ‘pouch’.
Has anyone else got this problem?
Is it just a case of eating more fibre and drinking even more water?
My job may not be the most fancy or well paid but it’s stressful. I have to be super organised, multi-task wonder woman and handle pressure from about 10 different people at one time. It’s good experience and at least I enjoy it.
However, I felt so frazzled and under pressure today that I caved and ate a massive bar of chocolate. I also felt so tired this morning I couldn’t even get up and go to the gym. I stayed an hour extra tonight at work and then didn’t go to the gym.
I’ll get up early tomorrow and go to the gym. As long as I pack tonight and go to bed at half 10 I’ll be fine.
I’m determined and I can cross today off as a Fail. Tomorrow is another day and it’s another day to eat well and prove that I can do it.
Right, 2 weeks til June.
That means I have to step it up and seriously behave if I want to have achieved my 1st GW.
Gimme support, I’m going to need it!
I have been trying to go to the gym all weekend. I have failed. Instead I ate pizza and lazed about.
Come onnnnnn, get up and go.
Don’t go and buy chocolate.
Drink some water and go.
