20mins Stairbitch(L10)+20mins Bike
Last chance spin WO
Been in a weird place mentally this week. Maybe subconsciously cos of flick & I parting co? Really beating up on myself! 😦
I feel great in the gym, despite my size, I feel strong and cos I’m pulling abs tight all the time, in my mind slim.
But then I get home and getting changed/showered I just think WFT??!!?? All this effort and I’m still such a fat Biatch!
But it is a marathon not a sprint, which leads me nicely into thoughts on cardio!…
…I think I’m doing too much.
I’m going to scale it back this week and see what happens. It’s very tiring at my current weight and I honestly feel like I’m overtraining.
I love the 20mins on the stairbitch – I know I am mental! – but the 20mins bike afterwards feels counterproductive, both physically and mentally.
Which is then making me uber tired the next am for walkies.
I think the 20mins stairbitch is sufficient post WO and with the 20mins saved from not doing bike, I’ll be home/fed/to bed quicker and more refreshed for walkies.
AM WO will now either be walkies – if sun is shining – shorter 1.7m route with some ‘sprints’ in the middle. The council have drawn 100m lanes on the tarmac in the park:
So I’m going to build from 3-5 ‘sprints’ upwards. I find running VERY difficult, don’t remember engaging my core so much? Mayb more in tune with it now?

Have had some really positive comments Thurs though which have really lifted me –in the back of my mind, still quite low 😦 – I know I’m not quitting, just a blip, I’ve been quite positive and not this down in 6 weeks, so that’s not bad.
Think a small cut in cals is required too, just 20g’s of protein lost from meals 2, 3 & 4, as I have duplicated those to all lunch type format so mayb this has had an effect. But I’m not as hungry, clock watching so do prefer those meals (rather than shake/cheese).
