Day Fifty-One: Jelly Legs

Again, another busy weekend so I’ve unfortunately dropped off from blogging again!! I really need to make a massive effort to remember on a night to actually write it!!

This week I lost 1lb, which while it was slightly disappointing, it is still a loss. I’ve had three busy and not strict weekends all in a row, so it is to be expected really. Needs to be said as well that I will have weekends like that, as I’ve said all the way through, it’s not really a diet it’s a change of attitude – so I have to be able to have less strict weekends.

Me and Si went swimming today, it was brilliant but it was a massive reminder that I need to work on my fitness!! We were swimming in the Competition Pool in Ponds Forge, which is Olympic standard – so it is 50 metre lengths! I have never swum properly in an Olympic sized pool before (at least I don’t think I have) – and after a few lengths it really started to burn. We spent about 30/45 minutes swimming, and had a break between each length. Hopefully if and when we go again we’ll be able to work on that and maybe do continuous after a while. My entire body felt like jelly afterwards, which I can only take as a good thing!!

For tea today we had Jacket Potato, Fish Cakes and some vegetables – for a total of around 516 calories. I’m also having a fruit cocktail for dessert as it was only 20p from tesco!! Bargain.

Good day today, hopefully the momentum will continue throughout the week!

  1. That’s very true! Just on the “Stay Positive” wagon now – kick starting it again this week so we shall see what happens!

    I’ve always enjoyed swimming, I just have no idea how they go so fast in the olympics!!!! 😛
