week 3 review - another 1 kg down - 166 days to go

I only lost 1 kilo this past week, still, better than nothing I suppose.

Mini Goal Feedback:

  • Have a lot of water again. - Yep, I ticked this box, not as good as previous weeks though.
  • Go Carb Free again. - No, not nearly as clean as previous weeks.
  • Get more workouts done. - Nope, average workout week.
  • Lose another 1.5 kilos. - Nope, but I will make up for it in the coming week.
  • Tick all these off on Monday next week. - not this time, here is to next week.

Looking at that report card it is pretty obvious why I only lost 1 kg.

Let's do better.

week 2 review - another 1.1kg's down - 173 days to go

Week two was interesting, we had a public holiday on Friday, so the long weekend made me a bit lazy. I figure that is why I lost a bit less than in week 1. Still, I lost another 1.1 kg's in week 2. So I am happy, I am making progress, and I am not standing still.

Last week Monday I set out these goals, which I think I will set out every week from now on and give feedback on:

Mini Goal Feedback:

  • Have a lot of water again. - Yep, I ticked this box, although I had less this looong weekend.
  • Go Carb Free again. - Yep again, but not as clean as week 1.
  • Get more workouts done. - Yep, much more, and much more intense.
  • Lose another 1.5 kilos. - Nope, but I will make up for it in the coming week.
  • Tick all these off on Monday next week. - 75% ain't bad?

So there we go, still many a mile to jog, many a burger to skip, and many a water to drink.

173 days to go then...

week one review - 1.5kg's down - 180 days to go

Yello yello,

Week one is done, and I shed a very nice 1.5 kilo's. 180 days to go, and I am hoping I can keep going at this tempo. That would be great.

Here is what I did right (for me) this past week, and what I think helped me loose this first (of many) 1.5kg's:

  • Water - I had buckets of water, during the week, at least 3, but sometimes even 5 litres a day. We have a cooler at work, so it is easy, and it is pretty easy to get into the habit. And I am actually enjoying it know. I had no fizzy drinks or alcohol, and only a few black coffees without sugar. So water, and more water, this week.
  • No Carbs - I had zero carbs from Monday until Friday, I enjoyed some eggs, meat and leafy salads, it was great meals, and I actually enjoyed them. I fell of the waggon a bit on the weekend, but more of that later, in the what I did wrong section.
  • Exercise - Not much to speak of - but it's more than I would normally do. Had one early morning gym session. Had a nice 3km walk with the dogs. Played one action cricket game.
  • Rest - I slept a lot, and got some good rest.

What went wrong in week one:

  • I did not get enough workouts in.
  • I had a huge weekend - that is where I fell of the carb wagon, had some sushi and pizza.
  • Had way to many beers and whiskey on Saturday.
Plans for week 2:

  • Have a lot of water again.
  • Go Carb Free again.
  • Get more workouts done.
  • Lose another 1.5 kilos.
  • Tick all these off on Monday next week.
I am happy, and in a good space, and I am going to keep this up. It's going good, there is 180 days to go. 

Lets do this.

190 DAYS

I like a challenge, and this is one, yes again.

190 days from today, 9 September 2014. I want the following:

  1. Weigh 90kg's or less.
  2. Achieve goal number 1.
Why 9 September? We are going to Thailand for another Thai adventure, another couple, who is our best friends, are joining us.

I was at my fattest when I last visited Thailand 2 years ago, this time, I want to be in shape. I will keep track here, and keep you updated.

Let's do this.


Here we go again

I am still here, and I am still reading your blogs. Which helps, as they show me I am not the only one struggling. I have been through quite a rough and tough time. Emotionally, Physically, and at work. I am through all of that now, and things are going pretty good. The wife and I booked a trip to Thailand with some good friends, we are just 2 couples and I am really looking forward to it. We leave on the 12th of September. So yep, that's the date, that is 192 days. Here we go.
