Wow, this is the first fitness updated in ages. I posted a couple months ago about my plan to lose weight. Sadly, I was hit with another episode of vertigo which wiped me out for a few weeks. Then I was away for a week then moving house.
This is my third week back at the gym and I’ve been feeling pretty great about it. I’ve lost 2.4lbs so far. Of course I’d love to lose more, but I did go out last Saturday and Sunday which included a meal and many drinks.
Monday: Chest and Triceps and 30 mins cardio
Tuesday: Back, Biceps and Forearm and 30 mins spin class
Wednesday: Shoulders and Legs 40 mins cardio
Thursday: Abs and 40 mins cardio
Friday: General arms and 35 mins cardio
Sunday: Circuits then cardio
Friday was a bit of a general arms day as it wasn’t in my workout plan to go to the gym. I just picked 6 exercises I like and did those.
On Sunday I burnt 1000 calories at the gym after a massive 1 hour and 48 minute workout. I was doing circuits for an hour and 15 minutes, keeping my heart rate up on the stepper between sets. My heart rate didn’t go below 155 the whole time and was often in the 160’s!
I think the biggest change for losing weight has been the diet. I’ve been keeping track of everything I eat and staying away from bacon at work, which is something I always struggle with. I’ve been having a slice of brown toast with beans and some fruit at work and 2 scrambled eggs when I’m at home.
Hoping I can keep this up, only 3 and a half weeks until I go on holiday!
