Sunday weigh-in : Babysteps going the right way

For last week's weigh-in, I'd lost almost 1kg due to being flat out in bed and off my food with the flu and weighed in at 83.1kg. The problem with a starvation diet, self-imposed or not, is that when you start eating normally again, all the weight comes back on. Sure enough, I was peeved but not surprised when my weight went back up to 83.6kg midweek.

I was still feeling pretty rough and I still have an annoying cough so my plan of doing the wii-fit every day went out of the window. I did however do a 10 minute/2km endurance jog on Monday and amazed myself by doing two, back-to-back, on Wednesday. Now, I don't know about you but jogging for 20 minutes non stop and covering 4km sounds pretty good to me ! I wasn't totally convinvced about how seriously sporty the wii fit is but I certainly worked up a sweat and could feel it in my legs !

This morning, I was delighted to see 82.9kg flash upon the scales. That's only 200g lost since last week's weigh-in but it means I managed to shift the weight that came back on too. It also means I'm down to the 82 point somethings - woohoo !

Positives of the week

- I ran (well, jogged) 6km this week :)

- Lots of baking with the kids during the holidays and I've hardly eaten any of it !

- I may have only lost a measly 200g but it's taken me down to the 82 point somethings and knocked my badges over to 37lb to go/24lb lost from 38/23 last week :)

Current targets 

Last week's target : Don't overdo things on the WiiFit until I'm 100% but start again on a daily basis as soon as possible, even if it's just hula hoop and balance games. Enjoy baking with the kids but don't eat too many cakes ! Go on, aim for the 82 point somethings - they're well in sight ! (DONE !)

This week's targets : Aim for 5 endurance jogs on the wii-fit - that'd be 10km! Get down to the lower end of the 82's

Short-term targets : I have a new pair of bright blue target jeans to fit into ! (Done but I want them to be a bit looser.)

Longer-term targets : Get back to the 70-somethings. Get my badges back to "weight lost" being more than "left to lose"

STILL TO GO : 15.0kg
