And 1 Week down....

I started the week and this blog feeling confident that I could do this.  That I had what it takes to lose the 27 kilos I want to lose. I wrote a food diary most days - even trying to calculate the calories I've eaten. I wrote down when I exercised.  I thought about ways to increase my exercise.  Tried to implement some of those ways.

Monday night while watching telly I decided I would do one of the exercises I learnt at Pilates last week during the commercial break.  Then I decided I would do a different exercise each commercial break and use the time length of the commercial break to be the length of my 'set'.  In a half hour program I got three different exercises in.  So I feel good about that.  I hope that I can continue to do this. 

I also had the urge to go for a run.  Despite the fact that I hate running.   And it was 11 o'clock at night. And I have poor knee joints at the moment thanks to being overweight.  But I really wanted to go for a run.  I haven't gone, but the thought? Urge? To go running is still there.  Maybe that's still a good step forward?  It means that I am thinking about ways in which I'm going to be able to achieve this.

To sum up, I have kept a food diary and exercised three times.  3 Pilates classes and the walk on Sunday.  

Well at the end of this week, this how the results look. 

Now, I don't know whether this is wishful thinking on my part, or if my scales are a bit off, but it appears I am 96 kilos.  I've lost a kilo! Yay!

96 kg
90 cm
114 cm
108 cm
116 cm
Thigh (R)
71 cm
119 cm
Upper Arm (L)
37 cm
35 cm

Now, seeing that I didn't take my measurements, other than my weight last week, I'll take these as my base measurements for size.  I don't know if I'll remember to measure myself every week, but I'll do my best.  

At the very least, I need to find a day of the week when I can weigh myself at the same time each week.  Recommendations?  First thing in the morning?  Before dinner?  Before bed?  This week and last week I weighed myself before lunch, but I won't have the luxury of doing that after this week.   I think at ths point, I'll try and do it before dinner Monday evenings.  It's worth a shot.
