Well I LOVED my gym induction!
The instructor was fantastic and used to weigh 23 stone so at least he knows the issues I'm facing and was sooo supportive.
I felt like a right idiot getting up on the bike but he kept telling me off for feeling silly. He even said they are not paid to do personal training but with someone like me if I want him too he'll work out with me if he's about. He said it's more motivating for him to have someone like me who needs and really wants to get the weight off than his normal peeps who just want to get their fitness levels up as they've got the rest of their lives.
Anyway, I can also plot my swimming and my classes on the system in the gym and see how many cals I burn off and ensure I do my 4 sessions a week (gym x 2, swimming with the kids and aquacise) which is perfectly manageable surprisingly.
Went to aquacise yesterday (hence the reason I haven't blogged in a couple of days as I've been at the gym for the last 3eves in a row......ha ha ha never thought I'd say that! Much harder this week but better as I felt like it was really doing something for me.
Weighed in before aqua assuming (secretly hoping) I would have a large weight loss as I'd done 3 sessions of exercise in the week (something I've NEVER done before in my life). Anyway hubby put on a half pound and he'd been in the gym 4 times and eaten better than the last few weeks so he was gutted. I had lost 2lbs which is ok of course but I had hope for more. Even if I'd only lost another half pound to get me out of the 20s and into the teens so I could be out of them FOREVER. Never mind it means next week no matter what I lose I'll be pleased as I'll be out of them!
Well spent an hour and a half in Specsavers tonight due to records not being transferred etc while porr hubby and 2 kids sat in car and got MacDonalds. As I could smell it when I got in the car and really wanted chips as a result! Didn't have chips as we went home and my wonderful gorgeous husband made us quorn curry for tea - yummy :).
We have both decided that we didn't eat enough last week. I had 14 activity pts earnt and had inadvertently 'saved' 20 food pts so ate 34 less than I could have. There is a school of thought that says you do need to eat some of the BPs or at least eat your full daily pts allowance as otherwise your body does the ooh I need to hang on to this as they're not eating enough to fuel etc...
So will eat all my daily pts as well as exercising 4 times this week and drink lots more water and we'll see what happends next week!
Well I'm tired so off to bed now.
Good luck on your journey - whatever that might be as we're all on one!
