Hi all, I'm just about to go out for Wk5 R2, a little nervous as I'm very tired, also a little down (I'm normally annoyingly bouncy and chirpy). I was in France yesterday running around like a maniac as my mother is in hospital and my sister has gastric flu: left her on my sofa looking after the dog. Got on a plane (hate flying) and got back here. Went out for an Indian with my husband who I haven't seen for a fortnight. Got on my scales: 4 lbs heavier
I'm wondering how much the running with cancel out things like going out for a meal or drinking copious amounts of Cote du Rhone. I think I know the answer, but I'm surprised that I've gained 4 lbs over 2 weeks even though I've been quaffing wine, at my place in France I live in a MASSIVE ruin on 3 floors and I've been up at 6 every morning and literally running all over the house tidying, doing DIY, walking dog and doing my jogging on alternate days. Rarely getting a chance to sit and eat, mainly eating on the fly.
When I started the jogging I was spending all day on the sofa fighting the urge to watch Jeremy Kyle and Loose Women. I was doing Weight Watchers and losing 2 lb a week, even if I did have a glass or 6 at the weekend.
Does anyone out there just do the jogging without combining it with something like Weight Watchers (which I'm doing, but haven't done while in France) and still lose weight, or does it have to be part of a combined package?
I have a job interview today then I fly back to France tomorrow to hopefully get my mother out of hospital. If I get the job I will need to drive back at the weekend.
Do I stop stressing about it and just accept I'm going through a rough time at the moment or do I just stay off the wine? (EEK!).... I think I just kinda answered my own question...
OK, off out for run 2, feeling nervous, also, it's in London rather than in my lovely Cevennes, not sure what difference the environment will make. I must admit the routine of the jogging has given me something solid to hold onto, just hope I can do the 8 minute run today.
