Wasn't the Muppets Movie great?
I thought it would be a good idea to start posting one of these as I can see where I came from and make some new friends while doing it.
This week was the first week that I started really watching what I ate and what I did at the gym. As I am lucky to have a bit of free time on my hands I have been going to the gym nearly every day.
I really decided to get serious about this after some recent cyber bullying attacks, pretty sad, but yeah. I really don't know what else to say about that. This still stresses me out to the point where I am on Skype crying to my boyfriend. Life goes on and they will get over it, I just wish it was sooner rather than later.
Quick run down of my week:
Sunday - Walked around the lake for just under 2 hours
Monday - Walked to work, it took an hour, then I was at work for 9 hours.
Tuesday - Wednesday - spent between 1.5 - 2 hours at the gym
Thursday - Spent about 2.5 hours at the gym
Friday - My family convinced me to have the day off as they didn't want my arthritis and such in my hips to be too exhausted
(Today) Saturday - I'll be walking for hours around a local show with friends
(Tomorrow) Sunday - If weather permits I'll be walking to work before doing a first aid course
This is what I've eaten most of the week:
Whenever I wake up: Protein shake
When I get hungry: A piece of fruit
During the times I ate lunch this week I had a roll with chicken and salad on it
When I got hungry again: Another piece of fruit
Dinner: Most nights this week I have a spaghetti that I had made. - Yes, with pasta.
Dessert (If hungry): I have lite cheesecake flavoured yoghurt.
Drinks: Diet cola and water
I feel if I restrict myself of everything then I'll just become less motivated and I'll just go back to old habits, this way I can still have some of the things I enjoy (such as pasta, yoghurt and soft drink), just have them in moderation.
This week we celebrated something with my family and went to Mcdonalds, I had a searced chicken wrap with no bacon, a small fries and no drink.
One of the greatest feelings I have is that moment where you are thinking about your day and thinking "I'm happy I didn't buy chocolate" or "I'm happy I didn't buy a cheeseburger" These are the moments that make you feel motivated and better about what you are doing, in my opinion.
This week I lost 2.1 kgs.
On my day off yesterday I watched one of those shows on the telly, I believe it was called 'I used to be fat', and they were working out 3 times a day for 6 hours. I don't think I could do that.
I'm considering picking up a sport - this week I am going to try to convince my friends to do a sport with me.
