Walking is working

Scales showed a 900gram loss this week (to make up for last weeks gain). I ate a little off plan here and there but tracked everything and exercised extra to compensate. Seems to be working!

Back in July I set myself the goal of hitting 400mins of exercise but mid August. I can't say it's been consistent but I've done it 2 weeks out of the last 6 - a reasonable ratio.

Week 1: 1,247 calories in 215 minutes
Week 2: 3,746 calories in 675 minutes
Week 3: 1,575 calories in 235 minutes (um...yea...not so great!)
Week 4: 1,433 calories in 240 minutes (not much better!)
Week 5: 1,607 calories in 248 minutes
Week 6: 2,620 calories in 475 minutes

Time for a new goal?

EEK! Up a smidge and it's my own fault...

My weigh in this morning confirmed that I've been slack at both tracking and exercising this week. Even though I loved the homemade custard squares, potato chips and roast pork - they did not love me back. A 300gram gain (.6 of a pound) is a small price to pay for my laziness. D is away for nearly a week from tomorrow, the weather is freezing and I don't have a kitchen at the moment. I can see a challenge ahead and f*#k me I need to meet it.

Ed note: Check out my net calories for the week after D made me track EVERYTHING (love you!) - should be around 1,000 for each day. Yea. Can see why there was no loss this week!

The week where I wore a purple shirt

Made up for last weeks status quo with with a loss of 1.5kg! (3.3pounds). The most I've lost in a week ever. Fitness wise, not so great. Lots of late nights at work and lunchtime meetings meant no laps around the campus during the day.

Week 1: 1,247 calories in 215 minutes
Week 2: 3,746 calories in 675 minutes
Week 3: 1,575 calories in 235 minutes (um...yea...not so great!)
Week 4: 1,433 calories in 240 minutes (not much better!)
Week 5: 1,607 calories in 248 minutes

Had 2 NSVs in the past week. Firstly I was able to fit a T I bought 2 years ago while on holiday that I swore 'I would never fit' but it was my favourite colour and from a concert where my favourite band played. So awesome to put it on and still have circulation in my arms! Secondly, D and I went for brunch on Sunday and I skipped the eggs benedict and ordered poached eggs on 5 grain toast, no butter with peppermint tea. Didn't even get a coffee! And I left half a slice of toast behind. I think I'm going mad...but in a totally awesome way. Hope you all have a great week!

Big Fat Zero

That is, a big zero loss this week. Which I'm not happy about but I need to also celebrate a small NSV that happened over the weekend. D has had all my credit / cash cards for some time now as I tend to go crazy when I hit the supermarket on my own. Well he was away for 4 days and I needed to buy some things for the house so he left me a card. And I went to a supermarket and didn't go crazy! Yes I thought about it, but I went a bit further to a 'nice one' and only got what I needed. No huge packets of chips or peanut slabs! That's a V for Victory in my books :).
