Well we are over a 3rd of the way into 2014 and I have not done half the goals I was aiming for on day 1 of this year. I suppose things don’t always go to plan just how you want them.. This post is a bit of a reflection of the last 5 months and how much I am now annoyed with myself because I could be at least a stone to two stone lighter by now. From January to March my exercise routine was going really well, gym 3-5 times a week and my fitness was building back up really well.. As I got into April this changed due to work being busy and college and uni becoming more stressful. I know it just an excuse I suppose but I have finally realised I do far too much. With being ill these past few weeks I have completely lost all my fitness and I’m still not 100% now, it really is dragging on but I have been for another walk last weekend I managed 7 miles plus what felt like Mount Everest.
I have signed up for the 12 weeks NHS plan and they have emailed me week 1 which I have printed off (not started it yet but printing it off is a start for me at the moment) and I had a sneak peak at week 2 and it involves c25k. I have wanted to do it for ages but I am physically the worst runner in the world and that is no exaggeration. I did try and start c25k at the start of this year and after 5 gores couldn’t make it past week 1. I do want to give it another go and I am thinking about doing it on the beach. I know sand is a nightmare to walk on nevermind run but it will be better for my knees and will hopefully make it easier if I ever felt confident enough to run around the local park or something. I just sent this to my friend as a bit of a laugh but it’s probably the truth as it seems very apt at the moment
Week 1 of the NHS plan mainly involves calorie counting using MFP so I know I can do that as I have done it before so I am gonna give it a real go as soon as I have found some motivation from somewhere. I do keep looking at peoples instagrams and stuff which I find really inspiring when they are posting progress pictures! I want to be one of them people.
As for my bad day last week, it turned out pretty good as I passed my exam! So only one more to go this year and I will be a level 3 qualified accounting technician so that’s something positive coming out of this year at least. Also regarding my post about weight watchers, I have decided to not join and save my pennies & one last note I weighed myself this morning and I have lost another 2lb so I am 2lb from losing the 4lb I had put on last week.
Anyway I have actual work and uni work to be cracking on with so I will leave you to read this post in disappointment of me being so lazy and underachieving these last 142 days!
