It’s the last day of February and its pancake day…not that I’m partaking. I eat pancakes at least once a week anyway so it’s not really a treat for me and on the back of a week of being ill I really don’t have the appetite for them.
I’m now on day 7 of no gym. My last workout was an upper body session last Tuesday. I felt a cold coming on Wednesday and decided to give myself a couple of days to recover but by the weekend I really was falling apart and had to take a step back away from training. What hasn’t helped is a complete loss of appetite over the weekend and almost having to force feed myself.
I’m still not back to normal yet either with my nutrition or how I’m feeling so I’ve planned to give myself one more day to refuel and rehydrate and I’m booked into spin class on Thursday morning as my first session back. I’ve been struggling massively with anxiety and feeling low this week and I know it’s due to a lack of endorphins.
Regular readers will know that I set myself a small goal to hit sub 200lbs by today. I failed. I weight 202.2lbs. A number I hit on Saturday before I stopped eating properly, so trust me, eating less than 1000 calories a day isn’t a recipe for weight loss (well not for me).
This does mean that since I started tracking on 29th January I’ve lost a total of 13.6lbs which is actually pretty damn good considering. It’s almost a stone in a month which I think anyone would be happy with. I’ve got 31 days to hit my next goal and 7.2lbs to lose…lets go!
