Last Chance Workout a winner!
Today is weigh in day. This morning I was woken at the crack of dawn by Dew Drop who is our only early-riser (groan). He woke the Minx this morning too with his carry-on, so after feeding both of them, I decided I might borrow a concept from The Biggest Loser and head out for a "last chance workout". I had quite a snacky week, you see, and a lovely night out with some friends on Friday night which involved a lot of Tapas and white wine (I didn't even attempt to count after the first couple of delicious mouthfuls!). To balance things out, I have been doing my C25K program (which is interval training 3 times a week) as well as another long walk, but you never feel confident when you just know that you overindulged during the week, do you?
Anyway, where was I? That's right. Last Chance Workout. It was great! Exercising at the crack of dawn is far more pleasant than lying in your bed wishing that your 1 year old boy wasn't such an early bird. I think I am starting to transfer my addiction to food to an addiction to low-grade exercise because I actually miss it on the days I don't do it! Strange! A brisk 50 minute walk, approximately 3 bonus Points, is a fantastic way to start the day.
I weighed in when I got home, after a quick drink. I weighed 77.1kg, down another 1.1kg from last week, and 10.8kg overall. Last Chance Workout was a winner for me this morning!!! The whole Tapas night will probably show up on the scales next week (my sister always reckons it takes a week) so I will need to be very diligent this week (could be tricky with the weekend I have planned )
So we move downwards and onwards... This week's goals are: to complete Week 3 of the C25k, track my Points (I have been getting very slack with this the last 2 weeks), drink 6-8 glasses of H2O per day, and save some Points for the weekend!
What are your weight loss goals this week??
