Its not a number its a direction

I weighed in this morning and I have shed another 600g this past week. I've been bummed out in the past about losing such a small amount but today i'm pumped about it!

I haven't been bad this past week - but I haven't been 100% good either. I haven't been burning 500 calories a session - more like half that, but I am looking at how to push myself further in my workouts. I will also admit to skipping Saturdays workout because I didn't feel like it (although I did a 4km walk Friday night). I also noticed this week my body wasn't asking for snacks so my daily calorie count was dropping as low as 800 on some days - i am keeping an eye on that now.

Today I didn't really get a chance to push myself in training - my nearly 3 year old had an unusually bad night so slept in our bed from 2am (meaning no one really slept well!), and the babies woke up at 10 past 6am. By the time I weighed in and got ready i'd lost 40 min of my work out so instead of the routine for today I pushed myself hard for 15 min and then started my day.

and you know what ... I found in that 15 min that I can push myself a lot harder than I have been!

  1. Good for you! It is amazing how much we can achieve in 15 minutes. I sometimes think I get more housework done when I do it in 15 minute blocks then when i stress and realise I have 4 hours of work ahead of me. Same with exercise.

    Hope the little ones have a good nights sleep. In their own beds!

    Well done on your loss, and good luck in the week ahead.
