[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
Woohoo! That's a whopping great 1.5 kg loss! Go me! I'm the man! One lousy half a kilo (approx 1 pound for all you non-metric folk) and I'm at goal!
See how excited I am? I'm using coloured fonts. I never use coloured fonts. I thought I'd weigh in today and again tomorrow then move to Saturdays after that. I'm so happy. I think after being sick for so long then going back to 6 days a week cardio, my metabolism has gone crazy. So long as I get that 0.5 kg loss next week, I'll be happy.
I've been thinking that maybe 68 kgs might be my ideal weight now though. Mainly because all the cardio equipment at the gym has that as the default weight so I would have to adjust the machines. Yeah, I'm that lazy.
I had been planning to go for a run this morning but then I realised I want to go for a long run tomorrow and I'm meeting with Deegee for a run on Sunday. I think three days in a row will be too much for my little legs to handle. The alternatives are to go for a long run this morning then have a rest day tomorrow or to go to the gym after work and do some cardio plus a yoga class or run today then rest tomorrow and have a long run on Sunday.
Thinking about it, and since I'm still having poo issues, I might go to the gym after work and have a run plus the yoga class. That branch also has a dvd library so I can get out some dvds to watch tonight. Then make Sunday my long run and have Saturday as a rest. That works for me since I've got other stuff to Saturday anyway. I love it when I work out a good plan.
Yesterday I felt something I haven't felt for months - hot! It was such an unseasonally warm day and I've finally got around to buying a little heater for my poor heated office. I love that heater. It's so much more comfortable working without my coat on. I even took off my jumper for a while and managed in just 4 layers of clothing! At lunch time I wandered over to the park and sat in the sun. Why can't it always be like this? Hurry up summer with your glorious weather and daylight savings.
You know what rocks? Black and Green (I think that's the right name) chocolate. I've heard people like Dietgirl and YP talk about this chocolate on their blogs and saw it at my local organic shop. Man, it's like they've distilled the essense of goodness from the chocolate and concentrated it in one tiny bar. I felt like every taste bud in my mouth was having an orgasm as I ate it. What makes it even more special is, because the flavour and satisfaction are so intense, you can happily eat part of a small bar then realise you've had enough and put the rest in the fridge for later. Well I could and I never do that with chocolate.
You know, I used to think I was unco-ordinated and lacked flexibility because I was fat. Now I realise I'm just unco-ordinated and lack flexibility.
Congrats Kathryn - that is huge. well done.
You go girl! Wohooot! It's getting really close. =D
WOOOOOOOOOHOOOOOOOOOOOOOO - well done on a fantastic loss and so close to goal now !!
Great about the loss. I don't know what you are expecting from a long run on Sunday, but bring the crash cart.
Wow - thought something big must be going on for their to be big red font!! You sound just full of optimism and alertness. If that is what weight loss brings then bring it on baby - once I've had the baby that is!!
Yaaaaaaaaaay. What a fantastic loss. Go you. So close to goal you sexy girl.
