**** Don't Make Me!!! ****
6:30am (alarm sounds)
A sleepy realisation hits me... Weigh in day... and I'm busting for the toilet!!
I roll over to get out of bed...
Holy mother of GOD!! What the hell happened!!??
My arms and chest ache with every movement. I can't push myself up to get out of bed so I sort of roll fall out..
OH for the love of all things holy!!!
My thighs are burning I push my legs straight and get to the bathroom...
now I am face with a dilemma... I really need to pee but I have to sit,
this involves muscles that right now are trying to tell me that surely I
can hold it for at least an hour....
Eventually the need to pee out weighs the need to avoid pain... so I sit...
While I am sitting, I contemplate standing... another not so fun idea... I might be here for awhile..
Then I have a brilliant idea - while I am sitting I will remove all my
clothes so I can do the weigh-in... I kick off my pants, no problem
there, so I very cautiously and timidly remove my t-shirt... everything
is going fine... until I realise I can not lift my arms high enough to
get the top off of my head...
I call call out for help but seriously Matt really doesn't need to be
woken to naked fat lady on the toilet... With one last tug I remove the
t-shirt, only to slip into the toilet!!!
My entire bum in in the toilet seat!! Ok this should be an embarrassing
thing to share - but I was stoked - It's been years since my bum has
been able to do that!!
Weigh-in .7kg loss - 100gms away from losing 10kgs... but I am stoked
with that as I was a bit slack with training last week as I had to
study, plus on the weekend I am pretty sure I went over the 1200 each
day - but I wasn't counting... Plus next week I know I will reach my
first mini target of losing 10kgs (this was initially what I wanted to
lose for the entire round)
Talk about avoidance behavior... I just didn't want to train this
morning - I whine and moaned (to myself) and eventually at about 10:30am
i just started going through the motions of getting ready to train.
Before I realised I was jogging around Two Wells oval - this time the
only obstacles were the workmen fixing the sprinklers and the prisoner
release program men clearing out the scrub at the back of the oval...
I did about an hour of jogging - I was Zombie training but I am now
using the full app - it's self guided so not as pushy (or motivating) as
the 5k training but I wanted to give it a go as I can now do 5kms in a
walk/run without too much hassle. 587 Cals were burnt and I decided that
instead of the basket ball jumps and running arms thing I would count
softball training later today - I think I should end up burning about
800Cals but I will wear my HRM to check.
Matt is doing well - I am glad he is doing this with me, he has even
downloaded MyFitnessPal, Main issue is that he is eating all the
Chobani! But I can't really complainhe is even making dinner tonight!
So, here are some things that I have learned:
JFDI works, one foot in front of the other till you are out the door
My butt fits in a toilet seat
There are 12 Cals in a fly
Prisoner work release programs are very motivating (I ran really fast past this section)
Toning days HURT like a Toning days HURT like a <insert something that's very painful here>
Anyway I must be off, I now have to make a mud cake, 46 cupcakes and
icing... let's hope I can keep my fingers out of my mouth - OH JOY!
