Week Two Recap – Moving my Ass and the dreaded weigh-in
Omg guys, how humid and hot has week two been! I am not one to enjoy the heat under normal circumstances so to be actually up and exercising in it has been…challenging.
Week Two has really been a week of struggling with my food, I am trying to not have carbs after 1pm and it was a huge fail this week – as well as my sugar cravings. I know it it a mind over matter thing, no excuses. My mind just wasn’t where it needed to be.
Monday – I was keen as to get going, after a weekend off I would have to say I missed the exercise. It was humid as inside the gym and thankfully we were set up outside, lots of running and team work. I always feel like I hold the fitter people back but they are more then supportive.
Tuesday – Teamed up with Sarah who was a great support, watching how she placed her feet helped me finally managed to figure out how to place my toes without hurting them when I get down for mountain climbers or plank jacks. I actually hate them but yay for no sore toes.
Wednesday – Lots of running, just kept pushing, really sore muscles in legs, but not sore enough it hinders me all day.
Thursday – Skipped the stairs in the morning felt really guilty but I needed a sleep in. Attended the afternoon session did boxing in the shade, running on the grass sucks too. I think running in general is not fun for me.
400g total loss 2.2kg
I always feel like I have let people down and I should have worked harder, ate less, moved more. Its a real mind f**k because I’m doing it for me not for anyone else. Yeah I ate carbs after hours, yeah I had a moro bar but I still lost. Next week I will do better. I’m only competing with myself.
One thing I struggle with in this 8week challenge is comparisons. She lost 3kilos so i should be able to lose 3kilos? – it’s not about numbers for me it’s about how I feel – apart from the constant aches from high intensity workouts -my body feels stronger- I have more energy, my skin is clearer – my eyes brighter. I refuse to fall into old traps of letting numbers define me. I’m doing it for me – my only competition is myself. I am aware of my tendency to self sabotage my own efforts (sounds ridiculous) – not falling into those traps again!! #fitness #goals #thoughts #inspiration #blogger #life #progress
