I have also now lost 4.2 kilos - thats 1.19 kilos since my last check in.
I have now lost a total of 55.5cms off my body.
I know I should be happy but I wont lie - I would have liked more...but you see this is where I have to change my mindset. In the past I would go on diets to reach a goal - get pregnant, fit into a wedding dress yadda yadda yadda...so I did what ever it took to get to that weight - well nothing silly though...
So I know that 4.2 kilos over 52 days is awesome ...its sustainable and its healthy. It sets me up for great long term success.
I also find today I am tired and sore and a little light headed. Thats because I have dont so much exercise that my body is crying out for some rest. Im not necessarily tired but my body is....and that's something else from previous attempts. I have to move at every single possibility. At my peak when I was loosing weight to get pregnant I ran 6kms in the morning, did aerobics at lunch time and ran again at night. Not healthy. So last night I should have simply sat on my ass instead of pushing myself through a yoga routine. And tonight I will - I played baddy this morning so I dont need to do anything else. And tomorrow I am going to do nothing. My body needs it and I dont need injury or aches and pains turning me off.
I need balance - its a marathon not a sprint.
