Hmmmm so it has been a couple of weeks since I last posted a weight loss update. Basically I’ve been mega stressed, the anxiety has been making small appearances and in all honesty my head just hasn’t been in it properly!
As much as I love the gym sometimes just trying to fit another “thing” into an otherwise hectic week sometimes just proves too much.
So for the last two weeks I’ve been going to the gym purely for my personal training sessions and that is it! Once/twice a week is proving to be very expensive.
When I am there my workouts are going well. I’ve pretty much mastered a press up and learnt that no matter what I will probably always hate pull ups – assisted or otherwise.
So to the food side of things…….
Total nightmare! Seriously not been on track at all. The last couple of weeks have been really busy, so I’ve just been grabbing food on the go! I know I’m setting myself up for failure but come Sunday afternoon/evening I’m so exhausted that I just can’t find the motivation to stand in the kitchen meal prepping!
I’m not really sure where to go from here if I’m honest. I’m still desperate to lose weight but at the minute it really is a struggle to fit the gym in. I feel like and sound like I’m making excuses but I’m really not.
This weekend even saw me resort to working out in my bedroom as a last attempt to get a workout in. To be fair it went pretty well but keeping the intensity level up was seriously hard.
I think it might be a better idea for the time being to look into workouts I can do at home and just hope that I really commit and do them this time.
I’ve not weighed myself since I started properly again and I don’t think I’m going to anytime soon. It makes me too unhappy and whilst I am seriously trying but not getting anywhere I think I’ll find it to disheartening.
So from now on I’m not going to be writing too many of these weight loss journey posts. I don’t need the extra pressure and while originally I thought it would keep me accountable it’s just adding more stress and making me feel worse for not working out.
Instead I plan on bringing back my “What We Did This Weekend Posts” I truly love writing these and remembering what I did with the kids!
