As of this morning, I have lost 2 and a half pounds of the 14 to lose. That means 11 1/2 pounds left, which means 3lbs per week is the target I must hit.
Today's progress then - 3 proper meals, healthy snacks, and shock - plenty of water! My skin is starting to look better which is a side effect, and a good one!!
This morning before work I did a workout routine for approx 10 minutes, as I am starting to build it up now. The clock is ticking after all. Today it consisted of:
- 100 abs/crunches
- 15 press ups
- 15 tricep dips
- 10 front kicks
- 10 knee lifts
- 10 lunge jumps
- 10 punches
- 10 squats
- 1 min running on the spot
- 10 side steps
Today was also a gym day. This evenings session consisted of:
- 1 mile run (120 cals)
- fast incline walk (80 cals)
- 2 x sets of 80 abs = 160 abs
- Stepper (150 cals)
- Cross Trainer intervals (50 cals)
- Stair master (100 cals)
- Interval springs (50 cals)
Total burned on cardio = 550cals. Plus abs. It took about an hour and a half in total. Quite intense tonight!
Steps wise, I am on a roll - 14,000 and counting! Whoop! All of a sudden, its like something has clicked into place. I don't dread going to the gym any more, and I find myself planning times to go rather than thinking of reasons not to!!
27 days to go. 11 1/2lbs to lose. PT tomorrow evening. Onwards and upwards (down on the scales ) :)
