Well I can safely say I have found my Mo Jo and I am back.
After what has been a truly shocking April for my on this journey, I know exactly what the problem has been and I have found my motivation again.
The problem has been exactly what I thought it was all along. It was the broken MyZone belt. Well this is now working and I really feel ready to get back on the journey.
It turns out that it was actually the strap that was broken and not connecting my body to the device to measure my work outs. I have obtained a new strap and we are away again.
If I am being truthful, I didn’t realise how much I depend on this little piece of technology. When I am training it gives a read out on the screen in the gym of how hard I am training. This is my motivation to push myself during every session. I have said from day one that I need motivating, watching and driving. With out this gadget it is very easy to slack off, leave the gym not feeling you have pushed yourself and before you know it, you are on a downward spiral. I didn’t really eat that badly (But it could have been better) but I did have a few drinks, which I am not proud of.
The other side of it is that I was training and not going up the leader board on the challenge Phil sets on MyZone . Again the contributed to the downward spiral. What I am now going to look into is a SwimTag. I have been told these can track you swim sessions. More on this to come when I can get one. Maybe they will send me one to review?
Having said all this, the worst thing that happened in April was that I started snoring again. Not good, Really not good. For more information on what this was really not good, read this blog:
This is by far the hardest thing I have ever done. I struggle daily to manage what I eat and drink. Having said this, I do it and I do it because I want to do it. I don’t want to be fat any more. I don’t want to go on holiday in 10 weeks and not enjoying sitting round the pool. I want to buy a nice suit and some nice shirts.
Until Next Time…
