Number of Gym Workouts planned: 6
Number of Gym Workouts accomplished: 6!
Goal weight loss: 15kg
Weight lost to date: 200 tiny little grams
Still to lose: 14.8kg!!
Journal Entry: I have been working my butt off (or at least trying to) for the last week and a half. But did you have to use your magnifying glass to see that miniscule weight loss figure?
I've been trying not to get disheartened but to look on the bright side, see long-term.
When I joined the gym I stated my priority goal as being "to get fitter" with a bonus goal of losing weight.
Ha! I was obviously kidding myself. I want to lose the weight!!! Otherwise why would I be feeling sad about my teeny weeny 200grams??
The bright side is: I am actually getting fitter! Amazingly I have more energy (*choir breaks into hallelujah chorus*). Physically, I don't feel as lethargic, despite the killer humidity. After the first few workouts I came away wrecked and gasping. But now, well look at me!
Before the Workout
After the Workout (still smiling!)
I am smiling! I am breathing normally! I don't look (or feel) like I am about to pass out!
Mr G is being a great encourager, telling me I look hot (*ahem* - ulterior motives?) Telling me to take the long term view; saying he is proud of me etc etc. Bless him!
(Meanwhile let me tell ya that his gym workouts are starting to show. Oh yes, when I snuggle him there's much less to squeeze... Hehehehe. Oooh, come back lovely pre-wedding abs! Nice!)
So since you guys are my friends, you won't mind if I do a Fitness Log update every so often will ya? You know, to help me stay motivated, to keep me accountable yada yada yada.
