The quest for 120... Day 6

124.0. Ughhh!! Bloody weekends! Taking your eye off the ball even slightly over the weekend can negate all the hard work you put in over the preceeding week. I'm on day 6 and so only have a net loss of 1lb... Needed to lose 1lb per three days to be on track and lose the 5lb in the fifteen days of this challenge. I'm not going to alter the goal posts though - hopefully it's just a blip and will go back down tomorrow. I've forced myself to go without today. I've had two cups of tea and an apple throughout the day, and sushi for dinner. I went to the gym and ran on the treadmill. Well, I say ran, more like a slow crawl.

I was massively bored at work today, so I made a graph of my weight since I started blogging... Hee hee!! I may post it on here if I figure that out. Maybe just for this 15 day challenge. Will be insightful to look at where problem days occur and good days and look for patterns. (ever the mathematician in me!!)

Stats for the day
Weight: 124.0 
Food: as above... About 600 cals
Exercise: slow and painful 2 mile jog...


  1. hahahaha...only we dorks could possibly find making graphs fun!

    I'm sure you'll get back on track. You were doing so good before this past weekend.

  2. Hey there! Was just catching up on your last couple of blogs there and I'm really sorry to hear that you've been feeling lost. If it's any consolation, I think we all feel lost but we do have to try and maintain perspective. I know a lot of things have changed for you but that doesn't mean that you have to sacrafice your sense of self.
    My whole life was turned completely upside down in the last 12 months and one thing I think I've learned throughout the whole experience is that it's not my situation that counts so much as how I feel about myself (it's a work in progress, obviously!!!).
    Anyway, delighted that you had a great weekend and that you really got to enjoy yourself -it's kind of what life is supposed to be about(or so I have been told...)


    P.S. You're obviously more perceptive than me, I totally hadn't noticed the thing about putting kisses after my could very well be something that we inherited from you guys. Good detective work ;)

  3. Hey lovely, I gave you an award! Maybe that will cheer you up a little?

    Don't get too down. It may be warped weight gain. Check out Zen's comment on my last post about backed up sewage after binging and stuff. Mmm nice I know!

    Hugs xxx

  4. um....come back. I miss you, friend.
