Week 4 = Bad week and turning point

Well week 4 has been my worst week so far. I've had a fluey cold for a week and it limited me to do pretty much nothing! Excercise was not an option as I was 1) sore all over - could hardly breath & 2) was highly contagious so no gym! On the high side I didn't put any weight on, I actually lost 200g. I couldn't taste any food and didn't feel hungry so there was really no point in eating much! My taste started to come back yesterday and have been wanting to eat all things savory! I'm hoping the weekend isn't going to stuff up my weight loss for this week as Friday was my last day at my old job so my work colleagues and I headed to the pub for a few farewell drinks and pizza =S. Saturday I headed to the pub again with a friend for lunch, I had no alcohol but did have a big lunch (chicken schnitzel & chips with dianne sauce). So there will be no more bad food for me this week. I also have another big weekend coming up as I am going to a 40th birthday party on Saturday night. I will set myself up though so I limit the amount of alcohol I drink and the food I eat by taking my own supplies.

I don't care what people will think by taking my own food and drinks as this is a lifestyle change not a diet and not something that people can judge me for. In the end it's my body and i'm going to make it what I have always wished for no matter what it takes.

Being sick this week also prevented me from being able to complete my fitness test and mini milestone. Which is why I will be completing them both this week - even if it is a week or a few days too late, the major point is that it gets done and I reach my first goal of running 5km. I am hoping all goes well =)

Week 3

Well unfortunately no loss for me this week, but no gain either. I stayed the exactly the same which is a bit of a disappointment as I thought I trained really well this week. It's clearly the eating thats getting me down. Most days I don't eat a proper lunch as I start work at 12 most days and am not hungry yet after having breakfast so I just think 'i'll just have something to eat when I get home'. When I get home I am absolutely starving, so what do I do, pig out until i'm not hungry and then eat tea a few hrs later.

My plan for this week is to try and eat a proper lunch before going to work so I don't come home starving. Take small, low calorie snacks to work so i'm not starving and drink more water. I have also started a new job this week working from 7am - about 10 then going to my other job at 12 untill my 2 weeks is up at my current job. Once the job i'm at now is finished i'll be working different hours so will have to start working out a new eating plan. My new job also involves me standing up all day instead of sitting down all day so i'm hoping to burn a few more calories than what I am now.

I also started the PT sessions with dad on Monday night which went well. We did different types of training than what I do at the gym and am very sore because of it (a good thing). We will be doing 3 sessions a week at night.

I believe the thing that is letting me down is that I get lost in the moment when someone has something naughty to eat and they offer me some, i usually say yes. Especially with my sister. I feel jealous that she can eat all the things I like so I eat it too. This is going to STOP. In the end it doesn't make me feel good about myself - especially today as I didn't lose any weight. It just feels like all of the training I am doing is being wasted by what I put in my mouth. I know I say this every week that I am going to change this and change that but week 4 is coming up and my first mini milestone is approaching (5km run) so I know I really need to start putting in the hard yards to achieve what I have planned to achieve.

I think I need to watch the Mish videos all again to get my head back in the game - something I will do on the weekend. Hopefully it will help and i'll start seeing the results that I want to see.
