This week went by so fast I havent even had a chance to read anyone elses update 3's. Also it seems I have a new hobbie, which I will try give up very quickly. This what you do: Go to gym, do about 20 minutes of exercise, have a mild medical emergency and then rush to the doctor for an injection. Last week it was lungs closing up = double cortisone injection. This week it was cramps in my hips so bad I though I had appendicitis = volataren injection. My muscles have been cramping up all week. I spoke to my Doc again and she reckons the body is fighting off some sort of infection (she offered to prescribe something and I said no thanks) so the muscles are a little week. In lieu of what she wanted to give me I have upped the veg and fruit intake, put some goji berries as snacks in my bag and continues to exercise.
So how are my goals for this challenge?
1) Get to 110kg (242lb) by the wedding: I lost the extra 600g (1.3lb) but no more then that. I think its pretty good all things considered. Also I have discovered something else, I have let something back into my diet that really shouldnt be there in those quantitites and that is salt. I was so good about it in the begining and I didnt miss it but I guess when I ate some one elses cooking for a week I got used to that salt content and forgot. So I am now using very little salt in my own cooking and not adding any salt to any food that already contains it. I am now 114.4kg (252.2lb) again.
2) Track every single day and stay under my points: I tracked every day and only went over my points once (by 1 point)
3) Train for at least 5 hours a week: Last week I didnt make it to 5 hours, not too worried as I was off by like 30min. This week I am currently sitting on 4h10m50s and I still have my saturday workout left. The 17 minute monday workout really threw me out and having my muscles cramp as I get into an exercise is really pissing me off. Also I have to fire my trainer as he has missed way too many appointments, in fact after I have finished this entry I am writing the email
This week was definitely an improvement, at least I able to finish my 5 hours
And now for the Little known fact about me:
I am terrified of heights which makes bridge jumping, rock climbing, abseiling etc loads more fun and ads an exciting adrenaline rush to mundane things like walking along bridges. I try my best to walk as close to the edge as possible as it petrifies me and sends that lovely adrenaline rushing through me. Weird, I know. When we went to Disney and we went to teh waterpark thats supposed to be a ski resort that's melting, my favourite part was the "ski lift" that takes you to the slides
