Apparently this has not been a good week, because I had GAINED 200 grams! WTF? I was finally feeling like this were finally paying off, and I could feel my clothes fitting a tiny bit better. I was so sure I would be under 80 kilos this week. And then this disgusting surprise. Maybe it shouldn’t have been a huge surprise, because there was a bit more of the sweet stuff than usual, and I only went to the gym three times, but in my head the worst case scenario was that I weighed the same as last week.
Monday: This was the first Monday this year I actually made it to the gym! Took some extra time to get Edward to sleep though, but I got 35 minutes of cardio in, on the always fun elliptical. I set the incline/resistance the way I always do but for the first time I was no where near reaching my target heart rate! Apparently that means I’m in better shape? Not a great workout, but nice to know things are improving!
Wednesday: Even when I get up earlier than usual I never seem to make it to the gym any earlier, so all I had time for was a five minute warmup on the elliptical before I did weights. I changed all my reps from 10 to 12, so I can add more weight soon!
Friday: This was just a silly day! The thing is, Edward has to be sleeping in his pram when I leave him at the daycare thingy that have at my gym, unless he gets crazy grumpy. And he always falls asleep on the walk down, except today! So I just kept on walking and when he finally fell asleep there were like 10 minutes left before the daycare closed. At the very least I got a decent walk, probably 3km combined.
Saturday: Finally a day to workout when I would leave Edward at home with his dad and not worry about time! Did 40 minutes of elliptical adding more incline/resistance, and it was so hard I didn’t think I could finish! But I did and then did weights. I skipped my step-up knee kick thingys though, my legs could barely hold my body at that point! Even set a personal high score on Fitocracy!
Sunday: You know Sunday is family-day, so we had a nice walk together in the nearby mountain that is Fløien. Which we usually do. When Edward gets a little bit older I want us to take longer walks, breaking for lunch. But right now I don’t want to breast feed in the cold open infront of half the city.
Really hoping next week will be better! I will definetly work hard in the gym, and try my very best to stay away from that pesky candy. I reaaaaaaally want to be under 80 kilos!
