My Week in numbers:

2 1/2 lb off

4 runs (including 1 parkrun)

1 bodypump class

1 aqua aerobics class

1 metafit class

 

My week in words:

This was the first week where I made a deliberate decision not to attend an exercise class.  I was really tired on Tuesday night, as the past week and a half I had been working full time and had been fitting classes in in the evening.  So I didn’t go to body conditioning and quite honestly felt so much better for it.  I enjoyed the classes I went to and do realise that I may have to reduce my classes as my marathon training increases.

But overall I felt good.  The running is going well, with more interval work making it challenging.  I had a lovely meal out on Saturday but apart from that kept on track and was delighted by the weight loss.  And I have had a few nice comments which is always welcome!!

All the best,

My Week in numbers:

3 lbs off

4 runs (including 1 parkrun)

1 bodypump class

1 aqua aerobics class

1 body  conditioning class

1 metafit class

My week in words:

I am delighted by my weight loss this week as it takes me to lower than my pre-Christmas weight.  It also means that I am back on the wagon despite my routine being completely changed.  I am pleased that this feels like normal, and the Christmas binge felt temporary. I know the longer this continues the more likely it will be  a natural part of my life.

My week in numbers:

Weight: 4lb off (1 more then all of the Christmas weight will be gone!)

3 runs (including 1 parkrun)

1 bodypump class

1 body conditioning class

1 zumba class

1 aqua aerobics

1 metafit class

My week in words:

I am so pleased for so many reasons.  I have got back into the swing of healthy eating and exercising happily.  I managed to do all five classes and the running has been going well.  I was chuffed to learn that I had put on 5lbs over Christmas (I thought it would be double that) but I had lost 4lbs this week.  It’s been a great start to the year and I hope it can continue.

All the best,

My past two Christmas weeks

calendar

 

My weeks in numbers:

 

Weight: don’t know (blind weigh in)

8 runs (including 4 parkruns)

2 body pump classes

2 aqua aerobic classes

1 metafit class.

 

My week in words:

So how were my weeks?  On the food front, I ate, a lot.  I didn’t get back on the wagon quick enough, to be honest, but I did enjoy myself and don’t have that many regrets.  But I am back on the wagon in earnest now.  I decided to do a blind weigh in as I wanted to be back in the rhythm before I found out what damage I did.

But I am pleased with the fact I kept up with my exercise routine.  In fact I missed taking part in some of my classes although the extra parkruns did make up for it.  Certainly without the regular exercise I would have felt a lot worse heading into the new year.  But it’s new year and the clock is ticking towards London.

All the best,

My week in numbers:

1lb ON

3 runs (including 1 parkrun)

1 body pump class

1 body conditioning class

1 zumba class

1 aqua aerobic class

My week in words:

1lb on-I’ll take that.  Two meals out and what with last week, I was fearing the worst.  But I kept up the exercise, my VMLM training started this week (can hardly believe that!), and tried to keep the plan up as much as possible.  I know next week will be hard but I feel I am better equipped to getting back on the wagon quicker.  I have also had several comments about the fact I have lost weight, which is also great to hear and makes all the hard work worthwhile.

All the best,

My Week

My week in numbers:

1 1/2lbs off

4 runs (including 1 parkrun)

1 body pump class

1 body conditioning class

1 zumba class

 

My week in words:

You could have knocked me down with a feather when I stepped on those scales.  I was convinced that I had gained weight.  Real life meant I missed aqua and metafit and it also meant I went out for three meals.  Yes three!  So I was convinced that I had gained weight.

 

Whether it’s a reprieve for one week only, I don’t know.  But I did stick to the plan for the rest of the time and haven’t indulged in treats apart from the meals out.  And I did what I could in terms of exercise.  So I will see next week, but what amazes me the most is that I am gymming and slimming in December!

All the best,

My Week in words:

Pleased again with another weight loss and keeping up with the exercise regime.  I planned to do aqua but the class was cancelled which was a shame but I certainly worked hard in the other classes, especially body conditioning and metafit.  However with lots of events and Christmassy things occurring, I know that there may be some not great numbers to come in the next few weeks!!

My week in words

I am obviously pleased about my weight loss but this week I am very excited about the fact I have done so much exercise.  it’s the first time I have done five classes in a week and after last week’s stress-fest at work, it felt brilliant.  My mileage has been increasing too and I ran a solid (although windswept) parkrun.  So happy days!

Hope you have had a good week too.

My Week in numbers:

Stayed the same

1 Bodypump class

1 zumba class

3 runs

My week in words:

Not the greatest week with regard to exercise due to pressures at work.  And food wise it was ok.  My shoes are fab and am running longer stances more consistently (relative of course!).  And I really missed my other classes.  I am really hoping that I can do a full house this week and keep on with the healthy eating.  On the plus side I have had several people commenting on my weight loss, which is a real boost.  So Yey!

All the best,

My week in words:

Another good week.  I wasn’t expecting a loss as I was out on Friday evening, and although I tried to make good choices, you never know how it will effect you. getting more consistency with my exercise and the healthy eating is going well. And I have had several people comment on my weight loss, which always is a boost.  Just want more of the same as we head to the new year.
