Things have not gone according to plan this week and I have gained 2 lb bringing me up to 11 st. Ummm what is going on here I ask myself. Well I have been working out everyday and increased my exercise this week and completed all of my strength training exercises with great enthusiasm. So what went wrong ? Food glorious food I will have to make sure I take a look at the food choices I make and cut out the snacks ie crisps, crackers, cake & nuts maybe take a break from the bread ? well maybe not the bread and I had a half bottle of wine on Wed and again on Thurs evening which led to eating more crisps afterwards. So on reflection I have been eating and drinking my exercise calories... oops.
What's done is done and I will have to work harder on the food side of things to get me back down into the 10's this coming week. I haven't lost my focus for the exercise as this is on point, but the extra's such as the carbs and wine have to be cut out if I want to reach my target of 10 st 7 lbs by 02/04/16. I am still confident that I will achieve this goal despite this set back so please don't be sorry for me having gained weight this week, even I don't feel sorry for me. Although this is not an ideal result, it's a reality I have to deal with and a lesson I must learn from.
Despite the 2 lb gain I have still managed to lose a half inch from my waist and 1 1/2 inches off each leg from the thigh, calf and ankle so at least something has gone down even if the scale hasn't
It's up to me now to put things right and to make a real difference this coming week
This week I have done 375 squats, 100 pull down bar, 100 tricep curls, 100 bench presses, 40 kettle bell squats, 100 sit-ups and 10 leg curls in my strength training workouts which I am really please about. (excuse my spellings)
Have a great weekend everyone
