My weightloss journey has hit a few speedbumps lately. Things have slowed down, reversed, kept going, reversed a bit more, come to a complete halt, then reversed a little more.
Lots of the above in NZ didn't help my cause
Motivation has come and gone. I find myself, shortly after committing to a diet, munching on chocolate and chips. I know that my health is at it's best when I follow a low GI, lower carb diet, so why do I put my body through the trauma of ingesting high amounts of sugar and other rubbish and feeling awful both physically and mentally afterwards...? I tell myself "I don't care", "I have lost this much, I can do it again", "I will start again tomorrow"... But I do care.
So I have put on a few kilos.
I am so far out of my healthy weight range that my mini goal weights don't even start with the same number as that of my (maximum) goal weight. I have a few goals in mind. People constantly tell me that I don't look like I weigh as much as I do, and I don't want to become a skeleton (yeah, 'cause THAT'S gonna happen!), so I plan to reassess as I reach my goal weight, then possibly set another goal.
The yo-yoing ends HERE. <- at that full stop
I am going to the gym this morning to re-instate my membership and get back into daily exercise.
No more self sabotage.
I am going to make good choices that reflect my healthy lifestyle.
I actually feel really excited about getting back into the gym classes that I love, like BodyPump, BodyCombat and RPM. I know once I get into a routine again, I can stick to it like I did before and love it.
My bathroom scales tell me all kinds of awful things, like how much I weigh, my body fat percentage, BMI and bone density. I am going to start recording the stats here as a bit of accountability / motivation.
SO here goes...
Weight: x7.8 (ok maybe I am not brave enough to post that first number yet ;) )
Body fat %: 35.3
Bone density: 7.0
