Goal for last week
My goal for last week was to keep up with my exercise routine. I had finished the 8-week schedule that came with my PiYo dvds and was worried that without a chart to tell me which workout to do each morning, I’d end up just doing the same one – or not bothering at all!
Well, as it happens I was ill this week – and still am. I aimed to exercise five times but I ended up cutting that back to three and a half times. But I also did different workouts each time. I decided to just start at the beginning of the second month of PiYo and do it over again.
Goal for this week
This week’s goal is to get over this ridiculous cold! I feel awful; I’m offensively tired but often up in the night blowing my nose. I feel like I might have something more akin to manflu as I am achey as well. I’m not going to put expectations on myself to workout and eat healthily when I feel rubbish, my appetite is all over the place and everything tastes funny!
As mentioned above, I decided to re-start the second month of the PiYo schedule. I was surprised by this in two ways. Firstly, I found the workouts easier, and was able to do more of them without going to the modification at the harder bits. Secondly, I found I was aching more after them – possibly because I was doing more, possibly because I was able to do the moves a bit better. Either way, I feel like the days I worked out, I worked out harder.
This week I’ve been sticking to the intermitent fasting, and actually it’s much easier than you would think. When I started to get ill mid week, things began tasting funny and I think that’s caused me to eat less than I usually would – but it’s also meant I’ve not had the inclination or desire to prepare proper food and I’ve mostly been eating crap and feeling awful. I’m not going to beat myself up about it though, just hang on in there until I start to feel better again, and go from there.
Weight & Measurements
Weight 160.8 – just over half a pound off.

I’m pleased with this; my measurements haven’t changed, but they’ve not gone up either – and I’ve still lost a little bit of weight even though I’ve not been eating well or exercising as much as I would have liked.
