So, as promised yesterday…here’s some photos of me carrying around 30lbs of Euroweight:
My shoulders have always been quite small, which really emphasises the weight gain around the mid-section. I weighed myself this morning, and the scale blinked me the number 76.6, which is less than it was a couple days ago. I really wish I could change the kgs to lbs on the scale, but can’t quite seem to figure it out.
I know that a lot of people say it’s not good to weigh yourself very often, but I find it’s the only thing that ties me to a routine. So, I’m not going to enforce any hard and fast rule about it, but I will do it whenever I think the number has changed (for better or worse).
Like I said yesterday, I write down my gym goals in an agenda and here’s what July looks like so far:
Check marks mean that either I have gone to the gym, or I WILL go to the gym. A check mark not followed through is modified into an X. The first week is a write off because I was in France at a music festival, but I started getting back into a routine by the second week…and if you count Sunday’s as the first day of the week, I’ve gone three times so far this week.
At the top, I’ve written “FOOD GOAL – NO BOOZE UNTIL 31 JULY”, which is the night before my birthday. Since being back from the music festival, I’ve stuck to that goal with the exception of 2 glasses of wine at dinner last week when a friend was in town, and last weekend when we had someone for dinner.
Okay, so I haven’t really stuck to that goal. #FAIL. Not drinking in summer is HARD.
And here’s what else is hard…there’s a table in our office that is constantly filled with chocolate. Today I vowed that I wouldn’t touch the table.
