What can I say except… rats arse. It’s Day One of the Going for Gold challenge so this morning I showed up at the scale as promised. 81.6 kilos (179.9lb). This means I have gained 2 kilos (4.5lb) since that magical day I reached the 70s, six weeks ago.
So much for my summer Containment Policy! Grrrr! I am so bloody annoyed at myself. You’d think once I saw the magical digits on the scale that I’d have busted arse to stay there. Instead I relaxed just a wee bit too much. This now means I have 6.6 kilos (just shy of 15lb) to lose over the next sixteen weeks. 6 point bloody six. That’s just one six short of looking positively demonic.
BUT! I ate my cake and now I’ll lie in it, and other confused metaphors. Onward and downward.
Day One has been magnificent! I won’t make a habit of this (as No One Cares What You Had For Lunch) but since it’s gone so swimmingly I will tell you Wot I Ate Today:
B – 40g mix of oats, sesame and pumpkin seeds, small banana, plain yogurt
L – spinach pie with green salad
D – Quorn fillet, carrots, green beans and couscous
My mind has been all over the shop today so I actually forgot to eat my snacks (apple and almonds). I can’t believe it either. And I really must do the online grocery shop tonight, we are eating the dregs now. C’mon brain… focus!
It was rainy and gloomy when I left work and I wanted to slink home directly, but I went to the gym and did 30 minutes of gruelling intervals on the bike then spent just as long faffing round washing my hair. Job done!
This has to be the most tedious entry of all time and no doubt someone will email or comment anonymously that if I keep writing entries like this they will leave and never come back. But I need this blog to keep me focused. RAH!
One day down. To all you groovers who are joining the challenge, hope you had a good day too! Woohoo.
