Have been absent from blogging because I have been feeling like sh1t this week. I also have a massive coldsore on my lower lip - a result of the Bridge Run it appears. (this relates to the feeling like sh1t part, not my inability to blog because I don't actually need my lips to type!)
Yesterday I found a food diary from October 1st some year (I think it was 2005 but not sure). My weight was 57.4 kg.
How depressing is that? I am one donut away from being TEN FUCKING KILOS heavier than that right now. And I don't have any real clue as to why ... except the sh!t that I eat and the amount of sitting around on my fat @rse obviously.
I worry that my blog makes me sound like a mentally unstable child with a short attention span, I keep starting a new plan and then falling off the wagon a few weeks/days into it. I know that I was planning to be a runner, but for some reason my chest/lungs won't co-operate. I am still getting this really bad ache in my chest. Without spending thousands of dollars on doctors again who can't figure it out, I have come up with my own half baked theory. It has something to do with damage from pneumonia when I was a kid ... Dr Google tells me it leaves scarring on your lungs. Either that or I have lung cancer/heart disease/exercise induced asthma.
It's like that old joke - "ME: Doctor, my arm only hurts when I raise it. DOCTOR: Then don't raise it!" ... it hurts when I run ... so don't run idiot!
This long meandering post will end of course with another ill conceived plan.
What will it be this time kiddies - place your bets now - low carb, low fat, cardio, weights, raw food, tantric sex??
Tomorrow is Monday and the 1st of October. I am going to try the Body for Life 12 week challenge. I have printed out all the exercise and diet plans for the next 84 days. I am hoping that by the end of 3 months I will have my lean body back. God knows it is flabby and revolting at the moment.
So here's to moderation (ouch ... I hate that word) - 1500 calorie diet of whole foods, equal protein and carbs with one free day; 3 days of weights and 3 days of 20 minute cardio with a rest day. The lovely Kek had amazing results with this plan so I am hoping it will work for me
No starting date weigh in because I am sure I will need to commit suicide by sugar overdose if I see how fat I really am. I had my "last supper" of crap last night and have been very well behaved today. Even though I nearly started a domestic this morning by not eating any of Mr Katie's Sunday morning fry up.
Here's to the next 12 weeks, I am hoping that I am so out of shape that I will ride the wonderful rollercoaster of building muscle while burning fat. Bring on the war! (I think) I'm ready!
