Beat the Heat

Well it’s Weigh in Wednesday again. I wasn’t overly hopeful this week. I’ve been eating the 1200 cals, drinking loads of water and exercising regularly but I just didn’t “feel” any lighter for some reason. Lucky for me the scales disagreed and I’m 500g closer to my goal smile I did have a few moments of feeling flat about it again (sooooo many people seem to be pulling big numbers!!! You guys are AWESOME), but I was thankfully reminded by some supportive peeps that it isn’t a race and any loss is a good loss so I’m going to be happy with it.

I have been feeling a bit drained lately. Too much drama around me lately and I don’t feel like I can walk away from all of it. I am going to try and minimise it where possible though. I just have to remember that I can’t fix everyone else’s problems and need to concentrate on my own.

I had an interesting training session today. I was feeling hot and muggy after work and didn’t feel like walking, plus it looked like rain. I was tempted to call today my rest day but I realised that its days when I’m feeling flat like today that I most need the mood lift offered by training. With that in mind I headed down to the small gym we have at the office (just a treadmill and a weights machine but it is air-conditioned . I couldn’t get the cd player there to work which was frustrating, but on a whim I decided to download the C25K program so many people have been talking about and give it a go. Well waiting for the beeps to change pace and having to fiddle with the buttons on the tready regularly kept me entertained for the full 30min of the program and surprisingly I managed to jog all of the running spurts! I will admit I was looking at the clock at around the 45sec mark of each of the 60 sec bursts, but I was also looking before the walking intervals were up and wanting to run again.

Feeling pretty pleased with that I grabbed the boxing gloved and headed out to the non airconditioned area to belt out some of my frustrations on the standing dummy we have. I tell you what that felt GOOD. So good I may go do it again tomorrow! I’d wanted to do at least an hour, so I jumped back on the treadmill for the last 15 min and did hill intervals. When the hour was up I had burned just over 500 cals and was feeling a whole lot better about things.
