Exercise and Diet Update - Week 2

Confession time...

... I completely psyched myself out at the gym this week.  I still went to all four sessions I'd committed myself to but felt a bit like I was just going through the motions.  It was only once I got home on Thursday night that I kind of realised I do this to myself all the time.

By nature I'm really impatient, and I think my thoughts when it comes to diet and exercise are "well if I'm not seeing results now, there's just no point is there?"  It's a crappy little vicious circle, and I end up staying overweight and unhappy.  Not good!

Well this time I'll be damned if I sabotage myself again.  I got myself to the gym on Friday night and tried to have a new attitude, setting myself smaller immediate goals, like another interval on the rowing machine and an extra set of reverse crunches.  It was the first time all week that my muscles hurt and it made me feel so much better.

On an even more positive note I've been so much better at not eating as much processed food during the week and I've probably lost a pound or two through that alone.  I've been letting myself relax again this weekend and had a little treat from a local bakery today.

Next week the plan is to get back into the gym with the same focus I put in on Friday, and to keep my fingers crossed that I can keep it up this time!
