Weight Loss Blog: 7/9

Post Birthday..

It was my 22nd birthday yesterday, which is one of the reasons that I didn’t bother to post a blog. Other than the fact that I didn’t have enough time to do this, I wasn’t proud of myself with regards to the amount that I had eaten anyway so I thought that there probably wasn’t all that much point in writing about it. I will admit that I had a very good day, and that all of the cake and nice foods made for a good treat which is something that I needed after so long dieting.

However, I still have a lot of chocolates and sweets around the house, and I know that these are things that I am going to have to get rid of before I can even think about getting back to my healthy eating and exercise regime, and therefore get the rest of my weight gone. I do have a little bit of good news though. Although I obviously haven’t lost any weight while I have been eating so much rubbish, the good news is that I haven’t actually put any weight on either. I stepped on the scales this morning, and I was exactly the same weight as I was before the couple of days that I ate rubbish due to the fact that people were making me junk food with it being my birthday. So that is something that I am very thankful for, and it just means that I won’t have to try quite as hard to get rid of the “birthday weight” because I didn’t actually end up putting any on. 

I have been taking a little time to think about what I actually want to do with my body from now. I know that I want to lose a couple more pounds at least, but one of the main things that I want to think about is getting fit and being able to run. At the moment, I can’t run for more than about 3 minutes without having to stop to take a break because I just get far too out of breath. I tried doing the couch to 5k programme a couple of months ago, and I managed to get up to week two, but then I started to struggle and I was finding that I was unable to run for the amount of time that you were supposed to be able to using the programme, so I gave up with it and I haven’t tried since.

I am going to stay with my boyfriend for a couple of days from Sunday, and this is a good thing because he lives on the third floor of a block of flats, and I always walk up and down those stairs at least a couple of times while I am there with him. This is just what I need I think because of the fact that I am trying to get fitter and not just slimmer, as is all that I have been concentrating on so far. Once I have managed to get a little fitter, I want to be able to start taking part in a competitive sport, as this is something that I have wanted to do since I was a lot younger, but I have never been fit enough to actually be able to do so. Hopefully I will be able to take a hold on my own life, and do the things that I have wanted to do for a long time now.
