Progress Shots

So, 4.7kg between the two photos below. I hit a plateau with my weight loss for a couple of weeks but I'm at 79.8kg today!

Not a huge difference yet, but most weight loss has actually been in my tummy area and also up high in my cheat too. Isn't it always the way?

Fitness wise I'm doing ok, considering I haven't pushed too hard. Natalie and I went to her gym on Sunday and smashed out some cardio which I was able to do without too much trouble. We did 8 mins straight on the bloody rowing machine which was the hardest!

I'm really happy with the healthy eating. Most days I'm making good choices, not feeling too hungry and feeling satisfied at the end of the day. I feel awesome most of the time, have plenty of energy. I'm not too stressed about going over my calories a little bit each day, as long as I've done some physical stuff that day.

As for fitting everything in, that's a daily struggle. I'm riding probably 2-3 times a week, running 2-3 times a week. Mostly I'm having to get up early to do it before work, which is starting to wear thin. This week so far I have stayed up too late doing other things to get up early. Tomorrow, hopefully!!

This coming week, I would love to stay solidly in the 70's with my weight, continue to plan my meals well and to run just that little bit longer or that little but faster.

How are your goals going?

Chugging Along

So I've been a little quiet here - sorry for that!

Weight loss has hit a little plateau - I'm keeping constant around the 80.5kg mark. Fitness wise, I haven't done much - I had a massive week trimming last week. I managed to ride once, but Allie is at the point of frustration with walking and wants nothing more than to trot (she is still on rehab). We did go swimming laps once but I'm a terrible swimmer!

Because I didn't do much fitness stuff last week, my run this morning was not very enjoyable. You could tell I went backwards with my running. Bum!

Over this week, I'm hoping to get out to run every day, ride once or twice, swim once if it's hot enough. I'm wanting to do something quite physical on Sunday - thinking a hike down to Wentworth Falls (HEAPS of stairs!) or possibly some cave walks at Jenolan Caves?

Diet is going well actually. I'm not concentrating on food as much as I used to. I can not snack too much and have smaller meals and be ok with it most of the time.

I'm going to take some updated bikini shots and post them over the next few days. I'm excited to see the difference already!
