So last week wasn't such a fantastic week, but I made a vow to myself that this week was going to be better. And judging by how yesterday went, it definitely is going to be a LOT better!! Yesterday I went to my new home gym (I moved back in with hubby, so I had to change), and signed all the paper work and did a little bit of a workout (just like 15 minutes walking - I had no idea about their weight machines and my calf muscle was acting up a bit). I am so psyched! They have a pool and more classes than my other gym! Calorieking tells me that half an hour of slow swimming works off over 400 calories so guess what I'm going to be doing EVERY DAY NOW??? YAY! I love swimming if you couldn't tell :p
Anyway, so yesterday I stayed well below my calorie count (ate about 1500 calories yesterday) and I think today will be the same because I've planned out todays meals already. I'm also going to be going to the gym for 2 hours - 1 hour for my own workout (including half an hour in the pool!) and then I have my initial consultation to help me figure out my cardio stuff, and then weights are tomorrow. I've also gotten my sleeping pattern back into a routine where I now wake up at abotu 5 - 5.30 in the morning and my gym opens at 6, so Monday - Friday I'm gonna wake up, go straight to the gym for a walk, swim and weights routine. Except for some Tuesdays where I will go to spin class. Saturdays I will go to either an aqua-robics class or a 'body balance' (yoga, tai chi, pilates mixed into one) class and Sundays I will take a day off. Then I will come home and study from 8 - 4ish. I'm so psyched that I have a routine figured out now!!! I never thought I'd be this happy to be a member of a gym... Oh! And get this right... my old gym buggered up when doing my transfer papers and wrote down that I had paid for 11 personal training sessions (when I haven't) and my new gym is like "Well, we have to give them to you if they've been written down, even though you've told us that you haven't paid for them." - So basically - I get 11 sessions with a personal trainer for free. FREE. The Gods are smiling on me I swear... OMG! AND my gym membership price has gone down from 55 a fortnight to 35 because my new gym charges less base price and because of the whole personal training thing...
Yesterday I packed away all my 'skinny' clothes (size 16), so that a) I can have more room in my closet and b) when I lose weight I can go into the bag and pull out a whole new wardrobe of clothes that I love :p
I don't know what my weight is yet because I'm only weighing myself every 2 weeks, so lets see what Saturdays weight is shall we
I'd love to be under 120kg, but I'd be happy with about 121 - 122kg just because last week was so incredibly bad :p
Strawberry - yeah it does make you feel uncomfortable... it sucks hardcore IMHO. Big people already feel uncomfortable enough without having uncomfortable clothing as well!
The smoking thing is going ok. I'm smoking 1 - 4 cigarettes a day (gone down from half a pack), and hopefully soon I can cut that down to none.
