This week has seen my return to the gym. My eating is still up the left but for the first time since in 6 weeks I’ve exercised. I’m disappointed with myself because if I’m honest one of the biggest things that got in my way (yet again) was impatience. I grew frustrated with losing 1-2lbs a week and I pushed too hard on the exercise front. I burst my boiler (see the post a few below) and burnt out. This was a silly mistake. Ironically I’m now frustrated with the fact that I’m a further 6 weeks away from hitting my target and I’m over half a stone heavier. Yet I recognise that I need to stop beating myself up and get my feet on level ground again.
Ironically my course (Dip HE in Counselling) now demands that we all get 20 hours of personal therapy. No doubt I’ll bring these issues to the table.
I’ve also stopped thinking about time lined targets, lets stick with 1-2lbs a week.
