"You can have the results you say you want, or you can have all the reasons in the world why you can’t have them. But you can’t have both. Reasons or results. You get to choose."

Over Analysing

Not sure what to post today.


I am bored with saying 'I am back on track'.  This will be the 5th time in 5 weeks I have gone 'back on track'.
I am over thinking I need to tweak my approach.  I don't.  I just need to stick to my approach.


So what about some numbers instead.


Overall


I am on week 9, day 3 (or day 66) since I began this leg of my journey
I have been on plan 80% of the time (53 of 66 days)
I have lost 4.9 kg.


Weekly


week 1 - 7 days on track, lost 1.2kg
week 2 - 7 days on track, lost 0.6kg
week 3 - 7 days on track, lost 0.4kg (dropped down 1 point)
week 4 - 7 days on track, lost 0.9kg (started C25K)


Summary: 3.1kg lost, 28/28 days on track, avg weekly loss 0.8kg. 2 weeks on 26 points, 2 weeks on 25 points. Minimal exercise 3 weeks, C25k 3 times in 4th week.


week 5 - 3 days on track, gained 0.5kg
week 6 - 2 days on track, no WI
week 7 - 7 days on track, lost 2.3kg (2 weeks loss, C25K again)
week 8 - 5 days on track, no WI


Summary: 1.8kg lost, 17/28 days on track, avg weekly loss 0.5kg. 4 weeks on 25 points. Core work 3 times per week, C25K once per week.


week 9 - 1 out of 3 days on track so far

And what do my numbers say?

That I need to start being more consistent for the numbers to be able to speak.

Amen to what she said...

But yeah, here's to a new month!!
Fall down 4 times....stand up 5 times...
Really true, if you think about it!

You're doing great Fiona. Just remind yourself (or print out and re-read it when necessary) Bitch Cakes' recent lengthy post. It's OK to be human... it's OK to fall off the wagon... it's OK to fall back into bad habits occasionally... but never ever give up. It might always be a struggle, but better a struggle at goal than a struggle 30-40kg over. Keep up the great work (*_*)
