I really need to do more upper body work. It bugs me that I still have so many issues doing a damn pushup. I know the ability to perform pushups is not the be all and end all of fitness but it annoys me
But, on the upside, my efforts are paying off and I’m down to 215.8 with a total weight loss of 16.2 pounds!
I am so excited and hopeful that I’ll be able to keep this up long term and hit my eventual goal of 170. I’m not gonna stress it and try to push for that before the end of the year, just getting under 200 before the end of the year will make me happy.
Whenever summer rolls around, I think about getting an extra air conditioner for the room I use as my ‘gym’ but then I see the electric bill and change my mind.
You also may have noticed I just blew off last week. I don’t know if I’m going to run at all this week, honestly. I’m more in a walking or cycling type mood; especially since I’m waaaaayyy behind on my projects. I just can’t run and do something else. I can cycle or walk while writing or knitting or whatever. COVID decimated my finances so I have to make money any way I can.
I like to have a few episodes ready to go in a season before I start it and it was worth the wait. I do have entirely too much emotional investment in this story.
This is the point in the C25K saga where the intervals get longer and longer. I can already feel my legs aching more but it’s a good kind of pain. Progress type pain.
In terms of my diet… I went off the rails over the weekend. I didn’t wanna cook so I ordered a bunch of food. I knew the Sandexa would keep me from any sort of overeating (no really, I get full SO fast) so, I could indulge a little – I needed some baked ziti in my life – and have plenty of leftovers to work on later.
I haven’t lost more weight yet but I’m sure that will come eventually.
At the beginning of this journey (there is a point where the word ‘journey’ just looses all meaning) I was pushing 230 and now I’m at 223.8. I find this promising! I bet this will go even faster if I workout more often but I am pleased.
In terms of side effects, I had noticed some stomach upset, a bit of dizziness, and bruising at my injection site but other than that, I’ve been ok! There the strange thing concerning my portions that feel so small and I’m full so quickly – even on healthy foods – that it makes me question how healthy I really was before this. But I’ll save that existential crisis for when I’m out of the 200 club.
