[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
I went for a walk today and managed a tiny little run, the first time since I broke my ribs. Well, if you don't count a short burst of running yesterday and that time when I got my heart rate monitor and couldn't resist. According to the HRM, I spent 5 minutes in "the zone" today. It makes me sob but I'll be getting back up there when I feel better.
According to my scales, I put on 2-2.5 kgs last week. Liar, liar, pants on fire is what I said to them, but the scales don't care. You can cuss them out all you want but they don't change what they say. Who'd have thunk a week of no exercise and bad eating could do that much damage? I'm thinking some of it must be on account of fluid retention and womanly time issues (please, please) because otherwise I'm screwed.
This week is going to be about 100% effort - good eating, plenty of water and back to exercising.
Gotta have these weeks so we appreciate our better weeks even more. Cheers to a better week babe and your fitness will come back raring to go in no time!

I agree with Mary, gotta have these weeks to appreciate the others, you just don't push yourself too hard ;P!
Hope you're having a good week Kathryn.
Ignore the zones babe - They are nothing to you. Just push it as high and hard as possible.
If it's any comfort on the scale front, it's *almost* impossible to gain or lose more than 1kg of fat in a week. Anything extra is fluid, or what you ate for dinner that still isn't digested. Or something.
oh that is great that you got a run in. Have a great week getting back on track
Wooo, you got a run happnein'. Awesome.
