Unfortunately I'm still unwell and, therefore, still not really getting anywhere. Yesterday I had the joy of a lengthy visit with the doctor so hopefully things will be on the up and up from here on out. Either way, I'm still slowly plodding along. And I honestly mean "slowly plodding" - if you'd seen my walks around the block you would have laughed. Oh well, some movement is better than nothing and I'm determined to stay on track, as best I can. Let's hope this coming week will be a goodun though!
That's all I can really say about that. BUT... you guys are awesome! I was amazed last week reading through everyone's links - what an inspiration you all are. Fantastic! I'm starting to think that I need to share the love and get some of you to guest post - to inspire us and others. Really, I am that impressed. So, let me know if you're up for it and we'll sort something out.
Anyhoo... onto my stats...
Weight Loss Goal: -10kgs (-22lbs)
Week's Loss: -0.2kgs (0.44lbs) - yes, that is where I was 2 weeks ago.
Total Loss: -3.7kgs (8.16lbs)
Distance to Goal: 6.3kgs (13.89lbs)
Week's Gym Visits: 0 (umm)
Total Time Exercising: 2hrs 30mins - comprised of numerous "granny" walks
Alcohol Units Consumed: Nil
Date of Last Alcoholic Drink: 31st December 2011
Highlight of the Week: This is a toughie as not much has been achieved. But, in all honesty, I am actually stoked that I have lost the weight I have. I recognize it as a start to a new, healthier Erin and I am excited about losing more and more (and fitting back into all those "old" clothes!). So, YAY, for positive thinking!
After crunching the numbers, though, it now looks very unlikely that I will reach my goal weight in the timeframe originally specified as, realistically, I probably won't lose 6.3kgs ( 13.89lbs) in the next 3.5wks. Regardless, I am determined to keep on keeping on, with the aim to lose as much as I can (and not beat myself up about it if I don't reach that elusive goal).
That said, I think it is about time I began dieting (as opposed to just "watching" what I eat) and start an actual program. In the past, I've found the Scarsdale Diet to be a great kickstart - the 14 day program is do-able and user-friendly. This, of course, is not a long-term solution but I will be using it to get back into the swing of things as I start to get serious. Can you believe that I am actually looking forward to this? Kinda weird but I'll work with it. :)
As I could do with a laugh this week (and what better way than to giggle over others' misfortunes?), today's clip is a loving tribute to one of my personal nemises - the exercise ball. I suggest you don't have a drink whilst watching this... or your screen may end up a little wet. ;)
Amusing, no? At least I have now filled my country quota... so you shouldn't be subjected to any more thigh-slapping tunes. This time I do promise. ;)
One more little thing before I go - don't forget to check out my birthday giveaway. And then trot off to see what everyone else has on offer for Lucy's Fugly Fabric Party. :)
OK... time for you to inspire me. Link up and spread the news. I love this part!
