When Life Isn't Complicated Enough

My Weight Loss Journey Week 5 of 2013

Weightloss Wlking wk5

After last week I set off this week with renewed vigor and got 3 walks completed in the early part of the week! I was eating reasonably well … then disaster struck …. a nasty cold has taken hold of Joshua and I and we have been battling heavy achy limbs and far too much snot to cope with.

All I can say is thank god I had batch cooked teas for this week! I barley have any energy to wipe my nose never mind cook a healthy meal!

Hockey tonight is not looking promising due to the pounding head I have had for the last few days, brought on by this cold. However we will see if it clears later.

So my exercise targets for last week were:

  • A minimum of 3 x 2 mile walks  (min 6 Miles)
  • Attend both hockey training sessions (junior with Beth & ladies = 180 mins)
  • No Hockey match … so just get my bum from the sofa!!

What exercise I actually completed this week:

  • 2 x 2 miles – Walks
  • 1 x 1 mile – Walk     – Total 5 miles
  • 140 mins Hockey Training – Due to changing weigh in day it would count on next weeks exercise

So how did I do? 

– 0.5lbs

Total Weight Loss This Year:


Total Loss (including last year)

4 Stone 7.5lbs

Next Week’s Exercise:

  • A minimum of 3 x 2 mile walks (min 6 miles total)
  • Attend both hockey training sessions (junior with Beth & ladies = 180 mins)
  • Hockey Match Saturday so need to play the whole match!

Not a great week however once again any loss is great but 7.5lbs in a month is still overall pretty great!
