So close

I am now 100g away from 10 kg lost! After last week's gain of .6, I lost .8 this week. So I am now very close to both 10kg & my 10% goal. Maybe next week? I need to lose .6 next week to hit that 10% so I'm pretty confident that I can do it.

I've done 3 walks this week even though the weather has been foul. I've also been to my Blast class and boy, did she work us hard this week! Between each cardio circuit thingie, we had to jog around the room. Plus, the boxing was really really hard this week. But I feel it's doing me good and I shall continue that. I've also bought one of those WW pedometers for when I'm out shopping, in the hope of getting some extra pts.

Goals this week:

  • .6 loss
  • continue walking
  • get fitted for a new sports bra

A gain

Poo! I had a gain of .6 this week. I knew I would gain but I didn't think it would be that bad. So I need to get back on track, both with my points consumption and my exercise. Last week I went over my points practically every day and on Saturday I went to the Lindt cafe in Sydney with some friends. Well let me just say that chocolate cake & dark Lindt hot chocolate is not conducive to a weight loss. Not to mention the Quarter Pounder I had on Sunday! So I will put that all behind me & start again.

I was hoping to get a WW pedometer today but wouldn't you know it, our meeting had none. Bugger. So my mother is going to see if she can get one at her meeting tomorrow. It would be very handy when I'm out shopping so I can get some extra points. I'm currently on 20 points & I find it's not enough so I really need to exercise to get some extras.

Another loss

I lost .7kg this week which brings my total to 9.1kg lost. I'm quite happy with that even though I went over my pts on a couple of days this week. I did a Blast class yesterday which was a bit of a shock to the system. But I'm really surprised that I'm only aching a little bit in my biceps. I thought it would be much worse!

Highlights of last week's menus included Seafood Chowder (a big hit!) and Tacos. Both from the STGTBT cook books which I use almost exclusively for my dinners.

I only walked 3 times last week and had an epiphany. I don't need to go harder or faster or more often. Walking faster than I am now won't give me any more pts to eat so I've decided I will walk every two days for 40 minutes. Otherwise I get too obsessive about it & feel guilty if I don't go. So that's my plan. I'm also hoping to do the Blast class each week on a Tuesday morning.

In other big news...I bought some new Tshirts yesterday. The ones I'm currently wearing (which are size 22) are very baggy & annoying so I thought I'd see if I could fit into something a little smaller. Well...duh...size 18! I bought three Tshirts from Big W - one purple, one aqua and one turquoise. I don't like spending huge amounts of money on clothes when I can sew them myself and also cos they're only going to fit me for a little while. These Ts are $15 so a complete bargain.
