This week I weighed in at:
Considering that last week I was 12st 7lbs, it sounds like I've lost a whole pound. But in fact, I've lost 0.2lbs. Basically it's nothing, which is weird and mildly frustrating. It's been a month since I've been on this journey and I've only lost 1.6lbs - can you see why I'm so annoyed?
This time round, things really are slow. I have not yet missed a run, I watch my portion sizes and I've been pretty good to myself since. I hold my hands up to not being 100% with the calories but surely a bit more progress should be showing up on the scales, right?
Tomorrow I will be starting week three of Couch to 5k and I'm nervous because the runs are doubling in duration so I'm now running at 3 minute intervals as opposed to 90 seconds. I know it doesn't sound a lot, but it really does scare me. The run in total is almost half an hour rather than my usual 20 minutes, which means I definitely cannot be late to my runs, in fact I should probably try and go earlier. I don't know if I can do it but I just have to, I really need to.
This week I must tighten on my calories and really watch what I do. I want to lose a solid pound or two this week because I'm starting to worry and I'm beginning to feel hopeless. I really cannot be counting every single calorie like a mad woman but I need to remember that everything adds up. With that said, I need to go to bed. Tomorrow is another day and I am going to work hard.
