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.
- 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.
- 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.
