As you can see, I have neglected the place a bit but, bitch is BACK!
I fell off the wagon. Really badly, very nearly, if not completely, gaining all the weight back that I had lost over the last year.
What have I done about it, well… I started loosely following the Team RH plan a few weeks ago, the 12/3/18. Fucking about, making excuses for not hitting my 15,000 steps. “I’d hurt, I’d be in agony, blah blah blah, more bullshit.” So I was eating 2,900 cals but not meeting my steps.
Week of the 19/3/18, I started walking more. I went out 3 times! I noticed that after each time, the first walk just scraping a mile in distance and was agony, that I could walk further and I recovered to my normal pain levels quicker. Tracked everything that went into my mouth. There was no one calorie that wasn’t tracked.
This week, I have met my 15,000 steps every day, apart from Friday. Did 19,000 steps yesterday. I couldn’t believe it. I am feeling amazing. Everyone left me in work this week, it is a tradition that you bring cakes and sweets for the rest of the team as a Goodbye. I didn’t touch one of them. Normally, I would be on that shit like a Dyson on Dust, but, I had tracked for the week and wasn’t going to fuck up my calories. I had accounted for my little treat. That and I was fucking full. All the time.
Thursday saw me going to the leaving do. So, I drank water, (I don’t need alcohol to be a muppet) and made myself designated driver to ensure there would be no alcohol temptations at all. I made my own food for later (boiled brown rice and chicken). Went to my mates house for a takeaway. I was given dry chicken tikka. I weighed it at hers and couldn’t finish my rice. I was so full. I have struggled with my water since finishing work for the East break, but I will need to start pushing myself more.
I won’t play Call of Duty until I have done my steps. My attitude to exercise and food is changing and it’s a fucking surprise but a nice change.
I can fucking do this. I can fucking smash my fucking targets. 5lbs down in 3 weeks and I am fucking happy with that. It’s a healthy weightloss with an increased physical activity.
With my holiday fast approaching, I will be packing my scales, both for weighing me and my food, there will be a fuckton of walking the dog, and dancing around. There will be no signal for Rachael’s HIIT sessions. I don’t care.
Having waited a whole fucking year to eat at a particular burger place, they have said they will help me with the calorie tracking! I can’t believe it. I am actually looking forward to my holiday and won’t be ill this time!
So, I have caught you up… Expect LOTS more.
Signing off for now, the dog needs her walk!
