3 Years Into The Journey

It’s been a long time since I posted on my blog, but I have very much been keeping to my original goals of keeping fit, getting healthy and loosing weight in a sustainable way i.e no diets or fads but rather good lifestyle choices…

Thankfully this past week I managed to loose 1.9KGs – mainly I think because I managed my eating much better than the week before.

Day 361 – 95.5 KGs

I am not sure what happen this last week, but somehow I managed to put on 1.3KGs and this despite me training like a Trojan. I have resided myself to the idea that maybe I have added some muscle, because I know for a fact there is no way I could have put on that much weight any other way.

354 – 94.2KG’s

3 Oct

So 300 grams off might not be the best result for this weeks effort, but hey I’ll take it. Right now the most important thing is that I have my midset in the right direction which is getting me out of bed (even on a rainy morning) and going for a walk around the block and getting me into the pool daily to do my training for the up and coming open water swimming season.

Day 347 – 94.5 Kilos

Last week was a really bad week for me, despite the best intentions I skipped out on training twice and I also over indulged in my snacking more than I would have cared to, however I keep saying that these things need to be used as lessons, and again I am trying to find that happy balance between listening to my body and being tricked by my mind into being lazy… oddly enough this week my motivation has come from a very special place.

Day 340 – EISH

After what can only be described as the coldest winter I have ever experienced, sickness after sickness and an extended layoff, I am finally back into the swing of things are ready to tackle the last hurdle of my weight loss. Did I think it would take me 340 days to get just over half way… surely not, but then again I have chosen to do this for the long term, a lifestyle adjustment as apposed to the quick fix instant crash diet methods we’ve all become accustomed to.

Your Bodies Natural Biorhythms

Your Bodies Natural Biorhythms

Over the years I’ve discovered that working against the natural flow of something is not always the most logical route to go, one of my sports coaches had a brilliant expression which is so relevant to this point, which is “never put a left handed person in to bat right handed” and this leads me to our body’s natural rhythms or the practice of Chronotherapy.

Day 230 – Back From The Dead

Day 230 – Back From The Dead

After 28 days of umm **cough** rest, I feel like I am back from the dead or at least a very long dark coma. So besides not going to gym and really discovering how much I hate winter, I am glad to report that I have only put on half a kilogram and more than anything I’ve learnt a few important lessons about excess and body rhythms.

So yesterday I had a fitness test with my local Biokinetist including a range of body measurements, which is the first test I have done since I started this weight loss journey 200 days ago and there are some amazing results.

Day 193 – ITS COLD

26 May

On my way to swimming the morning at 5am the outside temperature was a staggering 9 degrees centigrade and it took some serious will power to get in and do my 60 laps, but thankfully I did and I went right onto a 45 minute spinning session. So so far the pan to get my training our of the way early is working.
