3lb off this week; 13.5lb total; 13.5lb in 2018
I’m nearly there…the first stone. Pete said I could claim it now but it didn’t feel quite right so I’m working hard to make sure the next weigh in smashes the threshold.
After a couple of weeks of weight gain, .5lb here, a 1lb there I was beginning to lose faith. This is the joy of trying to lose weight when you’re a woman. Random fluctuations that don’t bare a resemblance to what you’ve eaten in the week. But, this was always going to be a long haul and it’s heading in the right direction so overall I’m happy.
Even more progress is being made in the exercise department. Things never get easier – you just get faster – that’s the rule but the running is getting more consistent and I am taking time off over the parkrun Molevalley course…
Seeing progress is so motivating and although I’m not at a stage where I can make Pete sweat yet – it is all feeling stronger.
So much so, we’ve taken the step to enter a half marathon at the end of September. The Barns Green half is ‘undulating’. Challenging enough to train for, local and friendly enough to make it worth the trip.
It’s already working as G and I have already started logging the miles and most importantly attaining the holy grail of running… consistency. I managed to get 3.5 miles in this evening with only a few walk breaks and will be focusing on increasing mileage and reducing walk breaks in the next few weeks.
I’ll keep you updated on how we get on.
