    My day is not going to plan at all, I don't have a car, so asked to borrow a friends, was expecting this to be tomorrow, but now it's today so won't be much in the way of steps going on today as already had to get a taxi in with a bunch of christmas presents I needed to send over to Wales.

    So instead of going out for my run tonight I will be doing the stuff I was going to do with the car tomorrow waaaaaahhhh

    Also got invited along to an event in the city at 8pm so not sure if I will have time to even get some weights in tonight :disappointed:

    can you do weights and steps tomorrow? in the same way you are doing car stuff today?
    or does it impact rest days for weights? (that's what I hate about plans changing - sometimes you can't 'just do weights tomorrow')

    I was meant to be doing Run today, weights tomorrow, run sat, weights sun. The thing is I had a half day tomorrow so I had plenty of time to do everything. I am trying to get 10000 min steps in per day every day, even on my rest days so I can try and ramp it up a bit but will be driving the car into work tomorrow as well.

    But hey I guess I just have to roll with it, beggars can't be choosers and on a positive note the supermarket will probably be quieter tonight than it would be tomorrow and I guess I can double up my workouts tomorrow with the free time I now have, just means I will have to run in the rain on Xmas Eve so I have a rest day in-between lol

    yeah tis good that you have the car.
    and good work around/extra planning! it just sucks when routine is messed with!! Xmas eve run sounds good - maybe not the rain part tho!

    Don't forget that sometimes when "resting" the magic (still) happens...Crimbo rushing about often is enough. Well it is in my book : )

    happy new year all!!

    so who is enjoying/loathing being back at work!?! haha :D

    I am enjoying the feeling of being back in control of my food intake. No more pressure or desire to overeat.
    Not enjoying being back at desk so much :/

    Loathing being in day after I got home from UK but enjoying being back in a routine!

    What was your damage? I think I am up about 5-6 lbs, mostly water weight I'd guess but a bit of fat too.
  • beerfoamy
    beerfoamy Posts: 1,523 Member
    yeah that is harsh!!

    Scale says 8lbs up. My logging shows around 3lbs up. So am hoping tis water weight and next week will show 178 ish again and then I will be back on track.
    Still, even if not, I am on track for new goal of 151 by end of June :)

    I did miss the routine - even the long swims I got in were at the 'wrong time' and didn't feel right for rest of day haha

    Yes was the same with my running, felt way too bloaty and didn't enjoy them as much as normal.

    tis a weird feeling wanting to get back to not eating as much and health etc.
    Eating cruddy food all weekend really made me feel low as well. Takes a few days to bounce back from that and not just continue.

    had to have it out with gf a couple of times as well that I wasn't just going to eat everything all the time to make her feel better and that if I said no to food it wasn't JUST because I was logging, but more that I was logging to feel good. :/ made a couple of days difficult and I did end up going over more than I intended to so she wouldn't sigh and be mad at me :/ ah well - learning curve.

    @beerfoamy Bad work day? or just a work day in general?
  • beerfoamy
    beerfoamy Posts: 1,523 Member
    @tinkerbellang83 Not necessarily bad....just boring as all hell! not a lot to do, and the stuff that I do have to do, I don't want to do!
    That January feeling haha. Just booked half day off next Weds. Don't think I am ready for a full week just yet.

    How about you? fun/busy/boring?
