The 43rd day on my journey to becoming fit, healthy and slim. I detail the ups and downs the good and bad days to give an insight into what goes on when trying to lose weight….
Calories: 580 (fasting day)
Cardio: Circuit training
Strength: Circuit training
Water: 8 glasses
The biggest motivation to keep plugging away on this journey would be if I actually lost weight. It doesn’t matter if it’s just half a kg or even just a fraction – losing at all would motivate me to go on! That is not happening now. I have been on the scale and have actually gained 2 kg (4.4 pounds) since I started in January this year – granted it has not always gone according to plan and I have not stuck completely to the program at times, but still seeing a loss of some kind would be a great boost.
I am at a crossroads now – keep dieting, exercising and hope I can push through – or just eat what I want don’t exerciseand still be where I am now? It would’ve been a no-brainer just a few weeks ago, but I have made a commitment to myself and I intend to stick with it. I don’t think I can say I gave it a fair shot in just two months, so I’ll stick with it some more and see what happens. Apart from not seeing any losses, I have actually realized that my energy levels are up and that my aches and pains are growing less profound. If nothing else I guess this is a good place to be after all.
So today was my fasting day – thus the ridiculous amount of calories ingested! – and I did the TT body weight abs workout B by Craig Ballantyne. Was not that easy this time around, although I think most of it had to do with the fact that my mindset was corrupted – no loss and all! But I got it done so there!
I can’t wait to see the scale move in the right direction – wish me luck all…
