I’m reasonably happy with the last weeks progress.
Starting the week with a pretty clean low-carb diet seems to have had a pretty quick effect on getting me to feel a lot better – less bloated, digestion feeling better and more energy. I weighed myself three times during the week and have dropped 2kg which I’m guessing is water weight – no wonder I feel less bloated.
So when I’m at home, I can keep my diet under control – but I’m not so good outside. According to myfitnesspal my diet was 5246 calories over my weekly goal. Ratios aren’t too bad – 30/20/50 but with all that stress going on last week, I needed that pizza on Thurs!
So clearly still working on balancing emotional eating but feel like I’m getting somewhere on motivating myself exercise-wise.
Strength: managed two sessions this week. Maintaining the gains I pushed for last week but not ready to go up yet.
Running: a 8km run outdoors on Tuesday which went well and some treadmill hills on Saturday – hard the day after weights but I do feel like I’m getting the benefit
This week I’m going to aim for the same level of activity – have another run planned for Tuesday. Also working on not looking for food treats at work!
