W7 D1 - Weigh In

I forgot to weigh in yesterday (I tried clothed, after breakfast, of course with a horrible result that doesn't count) so I did it this morning. 82.9kg. I am not happy with that at all. I didn't focus on my eating, but I did do some exercise. And after 3 weeks of no exercise, maintaining the same weight, I exercise and suddenly put on weight! And don't tell me muscle weighs more than fat, I didn't exercise enough for that! Urg.

I went to the gym this morning, to my favorite 50/50 class. I found it really tough, but got through it. All sweaty and exhausted, which is great.

The deal was if I went to the gym 4 times I wouldn't have to get up early. I managed to fulfil that. But I am still worried that it wasn't enough, I really need the group classes, and I plan to get up early on Tuesday (BodyPump) and Wednesday (BodyStep). Constantly revising my plans as I go.

I have already booked Aiden into creche for tomorrow morning.

I know the number on the scale isn't everything, and I should feel good that I am finally back into exercise after a 3 week hiatus, but that number makes me sad.

I started tracking food again yesterday, for the first time since my birthday. I went over my limit, even with my extra exercise calories. And then I ate 2 mint slice biscuits, after I was already over. Sigh.

  1. Hi,
    I saw you post a comment on Jack Sh*t's blog and I was curious because you mentioned Cotter Dam. I thought to myself, surely there isn't more than one Cotter Dam in the world? And it turns out my hunch was right, there's only in the one in Canberra. Yes! Canberrans unite! I grew up in Canberra and even though I haven't lived there for 15 years, I still get homesick for it.

    I've just started reading your blog, starting from the beginning and I have to say, I am impressed that you were able to handle 5.45am wake-ups. In June & July. That definitely shows some discipline, no matter how good the heating in your house is!

    I look forward to reading more of your blog and findng out what has worked for you, where you have found it hard-going. Judging by the fact that you are still posting and reading fitness/weightloss blogs, this is something you are still working on. Whether it is a case of you are now looking at improving your general health and fitness, because you have reached your ideal weight, or something you are still learning to maintain, I look forward to reading more.

    Especially for those continual little glimpses of Canberra. :)
