Got to be honest, its not been a great 7days on this new regime.
It started last weekend when we had a trip to Far Grange as we tend to do most weekends. The weekly treat is Fish & Chips in the restaurant on site when we arrive on a Friday. I don’t eat fish so I tend to go for sausage, which in itself is not great. Fried food, hmmmmm , but it is our weekly treat and Sam loves it.
Then came Saturday. We had a great day around the park just relaxing and I played a bit of golf. Didn’t play too bad as it happens…..
After day like this it is difficult to motivate yourself to cook anything. On top of this, when we are there for just a couple of nights then we don’t tend to stock much food in, especially healthy food which is expensive ( Il’l discuss this on a later Blog) and perishables.
So what did we do for tea…… takeaway curry! Possibly the worst food known to man when on a health kick, but it tasted so good! So, not a great weekend on the nutrition front.
Then came my PT session on Monday night. I have to admit at this point I was really looking forward to it but then I remembered it was measurements day. You guessed it, I put weight on! I was devastated but it was entirely my fault.
Whilst I did put on this weight, its not all bad news. My body fat dropped by nearly a Kilo, My Muscle Mass increase buy nearly a Kilo and because I have started trying to drink at least 3 litre’s of water per day, I am holding more water which adds weight. If there is a positive to this then the weight I have gained is in a positive way. Imagine how good I would have done if I had eaten properly over the weekend.
The other negative this week is that my MyZone is broken. I mentioned at the very beginning that what spurs me on is being watched and monitored as well as being rewarded. MyZone and the MEP points are my reward.
As it is not working, it has not been clocking all my points. This means that when I look at the results and the leader board’s, I am down the bottom and it looks like I am not doing anything when, in fact, it is just not recording what I am doing. This may seem trivial but I have found it a real knock to be honest.
Can I have a new one please MyZone. It is a brilliant piece of kit, it is what keeps me going and how I measure this journey I am on! I am lost without it!
All this combined has meant it has not been a great week for me. In reality it has not been too bad.
Still it is Saturday today and I have the rest of the weekend to find my mo-jo and get re focused. We have a free weekend so I intend to use it to do what I enjoy doing. Cars are clean and teh garden is sorted!
Until Next Time….
