Motivation is getting there and got weighed today
Monday, August 22, 2011
Officially in the last 4 weeks I've neither gained nor lost. I think I lost before hols, gained on minibreak, lost again and gained in Lyme Regis. Does that count as maintaining?
I've only got 1 stone just 14lbs to go. I must resist temptation. I've started tracking again today so I think that will help. I'm going to stick with the 8/900 cal high protein low carb until the end of September and I'm hoping that will see me 10lbs closer to goal, when I will come back up week by week to 1500 to restart my metabolism correctly.
I've turned myself into a walker. I'm trying to cover around 6-8 k on my pedometer each day which is 3 3/4 to 5 miles a day. I'm trying to get in two longer walks a week too. This week I plan to do a long walk Wed and Sunday - each around 8 miles, but I'd like to find a 10 miler to do perhaps early Sunday morning.
It's a busy week this week. We complete on the new house on Friday so I've got the afternoon off. Buster is being 'done' on Friday too. Thursday hopefully finally at lunchtime going to meet the owner of the house we are buying. Tuesday in Reading. Thursday Ted's nursery graduation party, Saturday Lara's birthday party and take some stuff to the new house in the trailer. Sunday long walk, Monday is a public holiday in the UK so hopefully some time at the new house and clear out the storage unit and some family time.
I gave notice on my gym membership today as I can't afford to keep it up now. So want to make the most of it and hopefully we will go swimming at the weekend.
But I feel ready to face the challenges!
