This week I have been really focussed on trying to get fitter and not really focusing on the weight loss.
I have been trying to up my stamina and strength by running in intermittent short bursts.
Although my running is done on a treadmill, until after my surgery I have to be very careful physically to not over stretch or run for too long as it can cause immense pain in my tummy where my organs have poked through so I am instead running for 2 minutes then walking for 4-5 minutes.
I’m not going to lie, at one point this week while run/walking I wasn’t sure if I was going to create a one women spectacle of myself as I felt like I was going to pass out and throw up simultaneously!
Food wise this week I have been at odds with myself and been eating in extremes from one day of being exceptionally good and the next over eating.
I have given myself a good shake, but I know food is my biggest downfall and my emotions play a massive part in what I eat, although this is more a psychological side effect than anything else and its only after I realise what I have done.
Going forward I am going to have to get to grips with using the app My Fitness Pal again for keeping track of my food it worked well before but for some reason I slowly stopped using it.
This week there was no loss but no gain either:
Next week I am hoping to get to the gym more than this week and I am going to meal plan for the week to stop the temptation of overeating again
oh …. and I am going to keep trying to run … even if it’s only a little bit
