Gained weight – time to refocus

Image 1


Eeek, I gained 1.5kg this week.  I’m finding it quite difficult to balance full time shift work (sometimes crazy hours) with getting to the gym and getting enough sleep.  Since I started this job I’ve gone from hitting the gym 5/6 times a week to 2/3 times a week, and I’m buying bad food on my meal breaks far too often.  This weigh in just highlights the need for me to get back into good habits. Perhaps I’ll stop putting my hand up for extra work if it means I can’t look after myself so well.  I’m no superman!

Today I had a flu vaccination so was advised against my PT session today. I used it as an opportunity to talk with my trainer about last weeks physio appointment.  He’s being really good and is going to rework my program to address the tight muscles on my torsos right side.  He’s also recommended I see a masseur that has just started working at the gym to loosen those muscles and work out the stiffness.  Can’t hurt to try it a few times.  

So yeah…. just really need to refocus and be disciplined again about everything that goes into my mouth and getting out for exercises.  I went to the gym twice last week and a 5km run on Friday night.  Although I finished the 5km in under half an hour, I found it difficult… though I know running is all about good days and bad days.

Hoping to have a better week this week.
