Hey guys and girls, how we doin’?
Not been able to post much last week or so. I was on my first week back at work last week and it was the early shift. Needless to say, I came home, went the gym, ate and collapsed into a heap on the couch, on the toilet, in the kitchen or if I was lucky, on the bed. I didn’t see much after about 9.30pm. I either work and play hard or I’m getting old. Me thinks option two 🙂
I’m good peeps. No scratch that, I’m super good. I know I usually only get weighed monthly, but, for the next few weeks, I’m gonna weigh weekly. I’m not sure why. I think maybe to encourage me or maybe just to keep me under the microscope. Whatever the reason, it feels right, for now. The thing is, I’m pretty sure, if I can get through the winter with it’s long dark evening/nights, long cold (and dark) mornings and generally cold, damp, dark and bleak days, I’ll crack the year. Did I mention it’s dark.
So, a weekly weigh, weird haha. First weigh was last Friday and I had dropped 09 lbs. Yes you heard me, 09 lbs. I won’t be getting over excited by the number, as I’m guessing lots of water came flooding out with the odd fat globule – nice. Anyhoo, 09 lbs is 09 lbs and I’m moving in the right direction. I’m still only going to post official weigh-ins monthly, but, for the record, I’m at 22 st 09 lbs. Cooking on gas people, cooking on gas. Food has been okay and only the occasional snack attack. I’ve hit the gym hard again this week too. Got to stay focused, remember why I’m doing this and keep the changes to my life style.
Not done much outdoors yet this year, but, I’ve been seriously inspired by J from ’52 Weeks, 52 Pounds’ I’m going to look for a marathon near the end of the year. Off the top of my head, I think the Liverpool Marathon is towards the end of the year. I’ll report back.
Not much really. Finding my feet again. I seriously need to update some stuff on the blog. I’ll try and get to it this week sometime.
As ever, a big thank you to all who read a long.
“I Can Do It…!!!”
