Linking up with B from bbeingcool for Fitness Friday and Dorothy from Singular Insanity for Things I Know.
This is what I managed to get done this week starting with the MDC on Sunday :
MDC 4.2km in 24:27
Monday 5.6km run in 38:23
Tuesday 30 mins personal training
Wednesday 5.6km 36:57
Thursday 30 mins personal training
The start of the week was bloody cold and I so didn't want to run but I knew that if I didn't get out there one day could become two days could become the end of my training. So I braved the cold and the sore chest from breathing in the cold air and just ran. The good thing about the cold is that I tend to run more than I walk because it is too cold to walk !!!!!
I am really happy with how my training is going. Three people this week have asked how much more weight I have lost and I haven't lost any more weight - I have maintained my weight for about 7 weeks now and I am happy about that. I have strategies for dealing with small gains. I have strategies for dealing with a run of making bad choices - I know I can do this and I am going to keep on doing it because it is working for me. I think that if I stopped training I would have to change my eating habits but for now it is working so I am going to stick with it.
Onto something more uncomfortable - I am sick and tired of these bloody hot flushes that I keep having ! Even taking the wild yam, I am still getting them - although I think they would be worse if I wasn't taking the wild yam. How long are they going to go on for ? My research on the internet says 2 - 10 years - I cannot do this for that long. I am tired of having to strip down to the bare essentials multiple times during the evening/night and then having to get dressed again. If anyone has any suggestions for combating these, I would love to hear from you.
Wishing you all the best weekend ever !
