So last thursday i was 86.8 kilos on the scales....yesterday morning 88.9 kilos :( thankfully i did drop 1.2 kilos over night taking me back down to 87.7 kilos....but of course that still leaves me 900 grams over the lowest I had managed to get too. I was debating not going to weigh in tomorrow...but...i will...otherwise Amy might hunt me down and that wouldnt be pretty!!! So i am gonna chat to her about my calories...yanno i was reading the michelle bridges 12wbt facebook page last nite...they all eat 1200 calories...and a lot lose over 10 kilos in a 12 week period (some even 20 kilos) so i am wondering whether i should slowly cut back my calories till i hit 1200 calories per day.
Today was a good gym day. I did 110 kilos on the leg press....so 22 kilos over my body weight....which by my calculations puts it that i pressed 125% of my body weight :) then i did 45 kilos on the chest press machine which was over 50% of my body weight :) Then Nora (my phsyio) was around so i went and ran on the treadmill and she did a impromptu assessment....and i have got the go-ahead to go back to running. I am allowed to start with intervals of 1 minute running then 1 minute walking up to 1.5km...we still need to do some work on my feet (they apparantly are collapsing as i run) and some work to loosen up the right shoulder....but apart from that it was all good :) So tomorrow when i go to the gym the plan will be to run up the 7 flights of stairs...boxing class...then run/walk the 1.5km and then do 20 minutes of hill intervals. I am considering doing the gyms next bootcamp...havent definitely decided on this but its a thought. And one of the other things which i forgot to mention to fiona was that when i was running (admittedly at a slower speed then i use to cos i havent run in so long) but i didnt feel out of breath....i was going at a speed of 6.8 i think tomorrow ill increase it to 7 and see how i cope (i was doing speeds of 7-8.5 previously and doing 3 minutes non stop would kill me...today it was 2.5 minutes and i was only just starting to feel a lil tired...not puffed)
Im washing up today some of the clothes i got at the op shops on friday....just noticing the brands...portmans, just jeans, jeans west gotta love finding good brands!!
I added a counter for the number of visitors to the site yesterday....was astounded by the numbers....over 44,000....admittedly thats over 5 years....and in a 24 hour period it got about 350 hits...pretty damn impressive....the journal is out there more then i think obviously!!!
Also on the right side i have added a couple of pages....one being my "accomplishments" a page which i hope will grow :) and also a page with progress pics...."my story" that i wrote a week or two ago is going to be on another journal soon (will let yas know when) so once that is up...i will put that on a page too for all to read (and boy its one long ramble! lol)
As i have always said i want to give back and hope people gain from my journey....have been thinking about creating a facebook page....to provide motivational quotes...allow myself and others to create a supportive community...maybe run challenges etc...its a thought...specially considering now i see how "out there" my journal is.
Not much else going on...enjoy your monday all!!
