That is it. Time to take myself in hand (again)!
The marathon is over and done with and since then I’ve been losing my way.
Well, not so much lost it as on a great big detour.
I’m in the process of sorting out loads of medical niggles that have built up.
My right big toenail has been removed (photos are available, on request, for the non wimps amongst you). Have to say it was completely stress free and the only pain was for a few seconds whilst they injected the anaesthetic. If you gave ingrowing nails do not hesitate, it’s worth getting it done.
There are a couple of other bits I’m going to keep private, well I’ve been told it’s good to have a bit of mystery in your life.
In two weeks I’ve got an appointment to take my knee to an orthopaedic physiotherapist so hopefully that will have some positive outcomes.
Because of the problems with my knee I hadn’t been doing any walking let alone running for ages but, after the marathon I was on such a high that I entered the British 10k and the Newham 5 miles which took place a week apart. So what did I do? I went and did them of course and did not do my knees or feet any good at all (although I got two medals one of which is fantastic!)
So I’m off my legs. They need a rest and they need to get sorted.
My current programs are all upper body and I’m loving them, getting my strength back and rediscovering my muscles.
BUT I’ve been eating, and eating and then eating some more. And I’ve been getting bigger and bigger and bigger 😦
When I saw Darryl last week he said that my next session will be a new program 🙂 and looking at nutrition 😦
So, because the ‘old me’ still exists I decided to pig out on rubbish for two weeks so that when I start back on task I’ll have a good loss to begin with.
I have done that for a week. Nowhere nearly as bad as the old me but nothing like I usually eat these days.
I feel awful!
I know I’ll never have a taut body but the answer really isn’t to refill the skin I’ve got!
So, tomorrow morning I’m going to weigh myself (in kilos cos they don’t really ‘mean’ anything to me) and measure my belly!!!
I am going to really think about what I’m eating and why!
I’m ashamed of myself at the moment but I know that I can change this. I just have to want it!
So that is my new target. It may need a bit of refining but I will lose body fat, I will improve my body definition and, once I am proud of my shape again, I will wear my Club 100 vest and T shirt!!!
