The First Weigh-in
So this morning I had my first weigh-in so far (Eeeek!!!!). Quite obviously I was extremely worried about my weigh-in, just in case I hadn’t lost any weight. I really didn’t want all of the hard work of the past couple of weeks to be all for nothing, and I was worried that if I didn’t lose any weight, that I would have lost my motivation, and reached straight for the milk tray!!!
To try and get the best results this morning, I have made sure to work as hard as possible at the gym, with sessions on Thursday and Friday night, and also this morning. I have tried to put in a minimum of 30 minutes of cardio a session, pushing it up to an hour if possible, and then try and do some weights at the end of my cardio session to build up my muscle.
I have also remained faithful to my diet with absolutely NO cheating for over a week now! If I am being completely honest though, it hasn’t been easy at all!!! Although I have enjoyed eating my healthy main meals of the day, it has been snacking that has been my problem. As I have written in a previous post I struggle with boredom cravings, especially in the week whilst at work. So far I have managed to combat this by making sure I have some fruit at my desk at all times, but I am not going to lie and say that I haven’t been tempted in the last couple of days to pop down to the vending machine in the canteen for a Twix!
So, after all of the healthy eating and the extremely hard work I have put in at the gym, I am really happy to tell you all that:
I have lost three pounds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This takes my official weight down to 11st 01lb!
Not bad for a first weigh in hey?!?!?!
I am really happy with my result, especially more so knowing that I have done it the proper way through diet and exercise rather than a faddy diet or starving myself! Hopefully as I have lost my weight properly it will stay off rather than creep back on in a few days.
It’s amazing what a 3lb weight loss can do for your mentality! I now feel more motivated than I did a couple of days ago, and I actually am excited about putting in the hard work to keep seeing results like this!
I have got a well earned rest day tomorrow, and then on Monday I am back to the gym, and believe it or not, I am really looking forward to it!
Bring it on!!!
