I’ve had no energy today at all. Just got back from my grandmother’s funeral yesterday and planned to hit the gym before work, but even after a long lie in I’ve been shattered the whole time. Even the thought of a long, relaxing walk (not much cardio but at least some fresh air) is horrible. Looks like I’m having a day off.
Gym in the morning though. Hopefully after a day of rest I’ll be back on the bandwagon.
Freshers’ week isn’t far away.
I hate wasting food. If it’s on my plate I can’t not eat it. I know it’s not healthy, so I’m breaking the habit.
I’m gonna start leaving food on the plate every time I eat. Just because i’ve bought the food doesn’t mean i have to cook it. Just because I’ve cooked it doesn’t mean i have to put it on the plate. just because it’s on the plate doesn’t mean i have to eat it.
having a few days off the diet and the gym to attend my grandmothers funeral.
there is so much more to life than being slim.
I couldn’t even begin to guess how many calories i drank last night.
I don’t regret it in the slightest :)
I’m so close deciding that chocolate is better than a flat stomach. Every evening I get such horrible sugar cravings. I’m not even hungry. I just want sugar.
Maybe I’m just misinterpreting a vitamin deficiency or something…
I’ve finally found a routine that seems to work for me :) in brackets are the average calories I’m burning at the speed and resistance I’m comfortable at.
Stationary bikes - 20mins (100)
Set Weights - 10mins
Cross Trainers - 13mins (80)
Rowing Machine - 1km (50)
Set Weights - 10mins
Treadmills - 20mins (150)
With the walk there are back, just the gym should burn a pound of fat every week, even if I stayed eating the same as before :)
the gym is pumping Katy Perry but your iPod is pumping Guns n Roses :)
I’ve decided to budget a little chocolate/sweets into my daily diet. Hopefully I’ll be able to do without them entirely soon, but right now I find myself craving sugar so much, I’m in danger of binging if I try to go without.
As long as I keep track of the naughtiness, admit it to myself and don’t get over-zealous with the sugar, it’ll be fine. Everything in moderation :)
Brought a couple of friends along to the gym this morning - how encouraging it is to be able to lift more weight than your guy-friends! Also ran 15 minutes solid on the treadmill without having to push myself to the limit, I know it’s not that long but there’s no way I could have done that a few weeks ago.
Sessions like this you don’t just do for the sake of your physical future, you do it because it’s fun.
