Monday – update and new week

Being sick is not a good way to lose weight. Infection + period did not make for a good week in terms of exercise and my food intake was lower than normal. I am still on antibiotics and almost feel well again. I can tell that the antibiotics are messing with my system a little but I am recovering. Today, I went walking today for the first time in a week. It felt good to get out.

I much prefer the exercise and making healthy food choices way 🙂 And that is a good thing to realise.

This week’s stats:

Start weight: 140.9kg (310 lbs)
Today’s weight: 122.2kg (267 lbs)
Loss this week: 1.8kg (4 lbs)
Total Loss: 18.7kg (41.1 lbs)

My head is in a better space today than it was yesterday. There were some good lessons in the angst that came out in yesterday’s post. But I re-read it now without the fear or guilt, just the commitment to my plan.

This week’s challenges:
I really want to bake a cake. I love baking and I have not done any baking this year. I miss it. So, I plan to do some baking on the weekend and take the left-overs into work on Monday. The challenge will be to work out what satisfies me and make the cake with care and joy and really enjoy my slice without needing to eat it all.

And I want to get back into my regular exercise routine. I am planning shorter walks this week as I am still recovering but I want to exercise on all my planned days.
