Things are firmly on track again now. As of this morning, I have lost one whole pound of the planned 14. This may not sound much in a week, but it represents the undoing of the birthday damage last weekend!!
I shall from here on in treat each day as a new opportunity to shift those pounds.
Today's progress then - I have controlled my calories. I have eaten healthily and have felt in control. Exercise wise I was excellent again today.
This morning before work I did a short routine (about 5 minutes in total) consisting of:
- 100 abs/crunches
- 10 press ups
- 10 triceps
- 10 front kicks
- 10 knee lifts
- 10 lunge jumps
- 10 punches
Todays session consisted of:
- 2 mile run and 5 mins incline walking = 300 cals burned
- Squats x 25
- Stepper - 125 cals burned
- 3 sets of 80 abs = 240 abs
- 10 press ups - full ones
- 20 tricep dips
- Cross trainer sprint = 75 cals burned
- Total of 500 cals burn plus ab and core
Steps in total = 11,000 on the pedometer. Excellent. So just over 4 weeks to go, 29 days left. 13lbs still to lose. Make each day count. Come on, send me some encouragement why don't you? :)
