Laura's progress

Postby laura » Fri Dec 29, 2006 9:45 am

I start this diary in a very optimistic mood. Last week I bought a new set of scales and on Friday morning I was 76.4 kg. Today (Friday) I'm 75.2 kg :P . I don't expect to loss that much weight every week but I think it's a good start and it'll help me to get through the New Years Eve party without eating to much.

For the last week I was very busy counting calories, 1200/day except for the Christmas Day when I just tried to eat a little bit of everything. I went to the gym every day and I'm closer now to my goal of running 2.5 km, I can run 1.8 km. I also spent 30 minutes in the morning and 30 min in the afternoon on the exercise bike.

Last night I managed for the first time to run the 2.5 km on the treadmill. I was surprised that it took under a month to do that. It was difficult at the begining, trying to push myself 0.1km more every day until I reached 1.3, then I jumped at 1.8 km and after that at 2.5km. That was my goal but now I feel that I can do more :lol: so I'm aiminig for 5 km. My weight dropt under 75 kg today but my oficial weigh-in is on Friday. I became addicted to the gym and my exercise bike :oops: , it seems to me that the exercises cuts the chocolate cravings and gives me a high, very wierd :roll: .

You are doing great Laura. Thats interesting that the exercise seems to cut out the cravings. That hasnt happened with me but now that I am going to push it to a new level we'll see if it makes a difference. The other thing that I have been thinking of doing, if it is convenient timing etc, is when I have a craving, to get out there and do some exercise at that time. So that could work too.

Great work with the excercise Laura. It is surprising how quickly you can improve with the running. I had to run 2.4km for the Navy fitness test, and thought there was no way I would ever be able to run that far... but it really only took a month or so to get there (just!). Now I can go for 10km or more :D

Excercise does give you a natural high, I guess because of the adrenalin or endorphins or whatever. And makes you less likely to indulge in junk food... because you don't want to ruin all the hard work lol.

I really push myself every time and I try to increase the amount or the difficulty of the exercise every session. I am exhausted when I finish and my legs are trembling, I'm not sure if it's healthy :roll: but once I stop it takes few seconds and then I feel the high. If I exercise early in the morning on the bike and then in the afternoon I feel it most of the day. I think chocolate gives me the same high but it's easier to get :lol: :lol: . I go to the gym from 7 pm after my hubby comes home and I found the time very good 'cause I can't run with a full stomach so I'm very carefull with my dinner.
