A good week.
The massive weight loss I recorded in Week 41 was down to being ill but it really knocked me for six when I saw the scales go back up last week.
But I have been pretty good in the gym in the last few days and I have been eating well.
Last night’s after-work session – 2075 kcals burned with cardio and weights at the Virgin Active gym in Edinburgh- was the best possible way to round it all off.
I’m sure if an expert took a look at my exercise tracker they could give me a few pointers on how to improve my output to lose more weight, but at the moment my approach has been simply …burn more than I take in.
Double gym sessions this week and two trips to Lochend Amateur Boxing Club have all helped.
But I won’t lie, the diet thing is really hard. There’s only so much Ryvita a man should be expected to take.
Still, the results have been worth it. Six pounds off this week. And this time the weight loss is real, not water.
And the Weight Tracker looks much more respectable again.
I know there is a long long road still to go – To fulfill the challenge I have to lose 31 pounds before the end of the year. Thirty-one pounds in 67 days. I’m still not sure that that is either do-able or indeed wise, but what the hell, I’m still giving it a go.
