Slow and Steady

So, I'm slowly getting back into it.

Last time I said I was determined to get stuck into this weight loss thing, and I'm happy to report that I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things!

Last week I went and rejoined the gym, had a basic assessment (weight and measurements) and had a basic program written up.  I also made an honest attempt to eat 'healthier'.

My nutrition is an area that will always be a struggle for me, but I'm trying my best.  I will admit to having a couple of take out meals, but when I have I have tried to get the healthiest option on the menu - a wrap that has salad in it, a massive side salad etc. 

I've been making salads with salmon/fish for lunch and surprisingly I find it yummy (I'm not a salad person).  Dinner's have been okay, I haven't really changed too much in this department as we have always cooked fairly healthy dinner meals, I've just got to work on portion control.  And breakfast, well for me that's fairly easy - baked beans/poached eggs on multigrain/rye bread or porridge.

This week I started hitting the gym.  Admittedly it was only 3 times, but that's a fairly good effort for someone who is well and truly overweight and very unfit.  I did a TBT class (tummy, butt, thighs), and will admit that it did hurt, I'm looking forward to the next one!  I did my weights program, and definitely felt the burn, will have to see if hubby can give me an alternative weights program to do to mix things up a bit!  And this morning I went for a Cardio Step class that was changed into a Crossfit/Circuit class - I worked my butt off and was so exhausted at the end of the class I wasn't sure if I would be able to get myself home or if I was going to throw up! 

I'm proud of myself for forcing myself to actually get up, get dressed in my gym clothes and for making myself go to the gym!

I haven't lost any weight yet, but I'm not going to let that get to me.  It's been a really slow reintroduction to exercise, so I'm not going to let myself be disappointed by the no weight loss.

Next week is a new week and I'm looking forward to five days of workouts!
