Doing pretty good!

Naughty me for not posting the past week  *smacks hand*

So far the effort to lose 12kg in 8 weeks is on target.  Last week I lost 1.6kg and today I recorded a 1.9kg loss.  Target is 1.5 each week, but my first week was only a 900g loss.  I’m currently at 4.4kg total loss,  so basically on target.  My gym instructor warns me that weight loss is likely to slow in the second half of the program though,  so if I want to keep losing at this rate I’m going to have to step up the intensity.

So off to a good start.  I have been feeling quite tired lately, though I’m not finding it so hard to get to sleep these days.

Food has been good.  Recently I’ve bought a lot of fresh fish and cooked it on the grill with lots of vegies to go with it.  On weekends I’m getting sushi or Pita Pit, which I don’t feel bad about.  I’ve also done a couple of curries.  They use coconut milk which probably isn’t so good but I choc fill them full of vegies too.

Stair running last week was the same as the week before- short but intense.  The best thing is my calves didn’t hurt the next day. 

I’m managing to do my gym program 2 or 3 times a week.  It’s still tough and I work up a good sweat.

I also went for a run in my neighbourhood yesterday for the first time in a while.  I’m still very unfit.  I jogged for about 20 minutes before I had to come home.  I’ll try and do it again a couple more times a week and hopefully I’ll get better at it.

So overall it’s going pretty well.
