Comp + 1 Week Weigh In

I seemed to have gotten away with just a 1.4kg gain (I'm not counting 54.8kg as last week's weigh in because I was completely dehydrated - I'm using the week before which was 55.2kg). If I can stay under 57 kg for a little while, I will be happy.

My period STILL hasn't arrived - I have no idea what is going on.

Yesterday my treat was a hash brown at breakfast and a couple of Snack Right Sultana Pillows with icecream for dessert. I like my new plan, it appears to be working.

I need to do some exercise today, I did nothing Friday or Saturday. I think I'll just go for a run.

I haven't got a new training plan from Liz because she is offline so in the meantime I'll make up my own.

Mon - RPM
Tue - Shoulders and Intervals
Wed - Boxing
Thu - Glutes and Abs + Stepper
Fri - Rest
Sat - RPM hi performance
Sun - Full body workout

I got my hair cut and coloured yesterday - still a bob but much shorter in the back and more layered. New salon and new stylist which is always nerve racking but he did a great job.

Catch you later.


  1. I know you don't consider yourself to be eating very low calories, but 1400-1500 is very low especially considering all of your exercise. If I were in your positions I would have definitely starvation symptoms (chronic hunger, blood sugar instability, lethargy/weakness, being very cold, etc).

    If it helps at all, this is likely the reason behind your lack of ability to control your intake, as well as your period missing. When we don't eat enough food and lose too much weight, our LEPTIN drops. Leptin is a hormone that tells our body we have enough food and fat to be safe. When we don't have enough leptin, we have erratic periods or lose them completely. Our brain also feels hungry all of the time, because a lack of leptin keeps the brain circuits that derrive pleasure from food constantly active, plus hunger hormones are increased by lack of leptin.

    If you take it easy and allow yourself to eat more calories, you will find your hunger will become manageable and your period might come back regular.

  2. Ooh, we got the same haircut - I had mine done on Friday, layered bob, shorter at the back. :o)

    Training plan looks good.
