So we are in week 8 of the challenge now and the last 4-5weeks, I have pretty much stayed the same weight. Slowly the food went, then the exercise went as I have become first money poor, and then time poor. I am hoping the next two weeks will see me settled into a new house, having a routine and goals set for university, and having got the loan that will allow me to recover financially from the last six months of hell. I am pinning all my hopes on that loan – without it, the next year will be a struggle for both me, and my mum who has loaned me some money that I need to pay back so she can pay her bills.
Well, packed that news up in a nice bundle of excuses didn’t I? So today I sat down and planned some recipes. Tonight I am having some slow-cooker stew. No idea on calories but quite sure it will be low provided I skip the pasta in my serve. Lunch is a chicken burger – I’ll have half a bun to lower the calories although they are store made ‘burgers’ with crumb coating so probably laden in fat and chemicals. Confession: I bought a $2 pack of dark chocolate mint TimTams, of which I have had three with my cuppa.
I am tired and sore – hay-fever is driving me nuts and the medication is making me just has drowsy and thick headed as the hay-fever itself. I need to get it together for this week. I need to drop a couple more kilos before finale.
Current Weight: 56.2 kg
April 13th goal: 55.9kg
April 20th Goal: 55.2kg
April 27th Goal: 54.5kg
May 4th Goal: 53.8kg
May 11th Goal: 53.0kg
That looks achievable – even with Easter on the cards!
I will set out my running gear for the morning and my alarm for 6am for the whole week. No matter what I will run my 3ks each morning.
