All the difference in the world!!!
When I last wrote I was on the point of tackling my nutrition and saying how I had to get off some of the weight that had crept back on.
I got out my nutrition plan from Club One Hundred and really studied it, then decided to commit to doing the two week detox properly.
I’m not going to tell you what the plan says. that is part of their business after all, but I will say that it doesn’t involve calorie counting or weighing and measuring food. In fact non of the things normally associated with weight loss!
It is so true that, with almost anything, if your ‘head’ is not in the right place you are not going to succeed.
Finally, at long last, my head IS in the right place and I have followed the plan to the letter as well as doing all my programs.
Last Thursday I trained with Darryl and told him that I’d lost seven and a half pounds! I have NEVER lost that much weight in one week!!
I showed him my food diary and he told me it was the best I’d ever done (gold star for me!)
He gave me some advice as to how I could improve it further and then we went through my three new training programs. Total happiness 🙂
Week two began and my resolve was as strong as ever. I have completely stuck to the nutrition plan, and taken Darryl’s advice on board. I’ve been doing my new programs at the gym and loving them.
I’ve found that I have changed ……. yet again!
Somehow, over the course of the last two weeks I’ve found that I do not feel that I HAVE to finish food. For the first time in my life I have been able to reseal whatever I’m eating and put it away for later. I’ve been varying the foods I eat and trying out new stuff.
I’m loving my food, here’s a couple of examples:
Friends keep posting pictures of foods like this:
But I can honestly saythat I do not want it.
There have been chocolate biscuits in the house and I have not even been tempted.
I’ve been nibbling at food, rather than guzzling it, and found that I get fuller quicker. There are times when I have to tell myself to eat because I know I should rather than because I’m greedy!
Could it be that I am finally understanding that food is a fuel, not a comfort?
My new programs are awesome. All upper body and core because of my knee and no cardio. Happy times!
(Seeing the physio on Friday so I hope to find something out. Hope s/he doesn’t just say stop being a wimp and go and get on with it.)
I never ache, but these ones have really got me. Love that feeling.
Last Sunday I went to do the baggage for Ride London.
I was aching but it was due to be a rest day so no problem I thought.
People don’t half pack a lot of stuff in their bags! Steve and I had it off to a fine art though. Steve was on the lorry, I was on the ground and we threw the bags to each other. As always, as soon as I started exercising the eche went.
I am so proud to say that I did not drop a single bag! My throwing and catching have improved as well.
I had a great day but, as you can see, I did get exceedingly wet!
Although I was really wet and cold I did not stop to get a cappuccino on the way home. Every Costa in the South East is in shock at my change to green tea!
Oh, and my weight?
This week I lost 2.4 pounds , my belly has shrunk and I’m getting definition back in my arms.
That’s 9.9 pounds in two weeks!!!!
i’ve never lost that much so quickly before, after last week I wouldn’t have been surprised to see no change.
It has NOT been hard, I’ve had no cravings at all.
I can do this and I will do this!
And, as always, remember that if I can, so can you!
BTW this is not and advertising feature but if you want to have a look at Club One Hundred and what they do go to:
There’s free stuff there and lots of people’s stories.
They train people all over the country, and abroad as well! I can’t recommend them enough!
