Weight loss plan – please join me.

I ran my half marathon on the 14 May, it was painful and I’ve spent the last week recovering. I had a few days where I was in pain, blisters on my feet and my hip. Then at the back end of the week, the muscle in my leg started hurting so I took a rest week.

I’m hoping my leg will be better as now the marathon is out of the way, I’m going to be focusing on losing weight.

2015 and 2016

I want to lose 11.5 lbs by the time I go no holiday on the 24th August. That might be an odd number, but it’s the one that takes me to a round stone.

I was hoping to lose weight during the marathon training, but I only lost around 3lbs.

I’ve been really struggling to lose weight while being on the pill. I know the reason I’ve not lost during the marathon was my diet, though. I been doing half arsed attempts at being healthy, but not doing it properly. It’s too easy to have a cooked breakfast at work when it’s in front of you.

I’ll be weighing in on a Friday morning as I spend weekends at my boyfriends. I’ve calculated that if I lose a pound a week, I’ll be at my goal weight by 11th August, which is not an unrealistic goal.

There are some events I have that will make it hard to diet and exercise, but I’ll have to work extra hard the weeks before and after so I can still enjoy myself.

Some commitments:

Diet.

  • Meal prep for work and take salads/fruit.
  • Have cucumbers, carrots and cuppasoups in for snacks when hungry.
  • Cut down on cheese.
  • No more cooked breakfasts at work!
  • Track calories to be honest about portion sizes.
  • Cut down on alcohol.

Fitness.

  • Book spin classes.
  • Get back into weights.
  • Gym Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at least.
  • 2 upper body days, 1 lower body days.

I must get back into this dress:

Do you have any weightloss goals? Let me know if you have any posts about it. I need motivation.

    Wanting to get back into some of my fave clothes is motivation enough for me, I just need to stick to the plan! My problems seem to be alcohol and then the extra food I binge on before, during and after drinking! So I figure if I cut down on one, the rest should follow suit! I’m going to get back into the 5:2 (or at least my version of it!) as I did see some improvement when following it!
