I’m so feeling spring now. I’ve spent the late afternoon in the garden with my lovely 4 year old planting seeds ready for spring to do it’s work. It’s warm in the sunshine (we hit double figures in celsius today – hooray!) but still a bit chilly in the shade, also as soon as the sun starts to set you feel the cold creep in. It’s 1822 now and the sun is just dipping down below the horizon and the sky is purple.
My goodness, I really am British, a whole paragraph on the weather.
Anyway, moving swiftly on!
Yesterday I did great, stayed on plan really well, killed it in the Gym, around 458 calories from memory, and then had a lovely afternoon of fun with a friend. Today not so good, been terribly off plan with an ad hoc lunch while shopping and then a milkshake to stave off the heat then home to sausages, eggs and chips! Terrible day. I only managed to do exercise while shopping but it was an essential task. This morning I had such a grinding headache that there was no chance of a workout, I actually ended up talking to the doctor about it – phone in clinic – who is going to prescribe some migraine stuff for me. He also mentioned that it could be the side effect to exercise and weight loss and a lot of toxicity is stored in excess fat and released when you blast that fat. It can effect your hair, complexion and mood as well apparently.
I have been feeling a bit flat recently, coming to terms with the fact that the weight loss will be slower than I’d like even when I work out and diet is quite tough. I’m struggling to stay on plan this week but I’m motivated with exercise but until I get the diet under control I’m just treading water. I am not weighing in on Saturday as I’m working but I am really looking forward to getting life back on track shortly. We all have dips in motivation I guess I’m just more focussed on fitness at the moment which is probably much more healthy.
Spring is definitely putting a bounce in my step though and the more time I spend outside the more healthy I feel and the more I want to do and eat better. We’ve planted a number of “grow your own” seeds today so I’m looking forward to eating my own organically grown produce too.
