Good Morning Weight Loss Warriors!
Those of you who read last week’s progress post will know that I wasn’t best pleased with myself due to my constant over-snacking and just indulging too much in everything I looked at.
I know last week was a bank holiday so some fun was to be had, but it came at the expense of putting weight on and setting me back a week in my journey.
This annoyed me so much that I made sure I had a good week this week.
So the usual gym sessions were had but I also went to play badminton on Sunday morning with the moomaa and we then walked to our local town centre and back for a bit of an extra boost. The wind and rain battered us but we did it and both felt fab afterwards!
Then Monday I did my normal gym session with the cardio on the treadmill and bike but also did a bit of boxing too. Let me tell you, it doesn’t half de-stress you!
Yesterday (Tuesday) I went to play badminton again with both my moomaa and moopaa and had a ridiculously good workout! Bearing in mind that before they arrived, I had just done 20 minutes of interval running and walking on the treadmill, I had a pretty knackering workout!
My dad is wanting to get healthier now so we’re going to play badminton every Tuesday. It’s good for me too because I get to break the monotony of slogging it out in the gym and get to enjoy exercise a bit more.
I took a few pictures of them playing when I just got there.
He’s got a right back-swing on him my old man; even a life of drinking and smoking hasn’t ruined his semi-pro style badminton playing. Both him and my mum definitely gave me the run around on the court; this just encouraged me more to get fit so I can beat my parents eventually!
Anyway, back to the point of this post (just wanted to give you an overview of my week), I got on the scales this morning. Whilst telling myself not to be annoyed if I hadn’t lost or if it wasn’t as much as I was wanting, this is what I saw…
3.5 lb’s lost this week which makes me so happy! I finally feel like I am back on the straight and narrow and nothing is going to pull me back down now!
Tonight I am going to attempt to start the Change4Life Couch to 5K by walking/jogging/the poorest running you will ever see round a local country park called Newmillerdam. I will be going with an old friend I have known since I was 4 and its been a while since we’ve seen each other so we should have lots of catch up on!
I’ll let you know how my first day goes but don’t expect anything amazing! If you want to give the couch to 5k thing a go, I have linked it above.
Come on guys, let’s keep the weight loss moving! It’s not over, it’s only just beginning!
Love you all, SIMW
