Week 7 update: 10 kilos by Christmas

Another interesting week!

After my first session with Gus which left me crippled, by Monday morning I was starting to feel how I would normally have felt after a workout – some aches and pains, but able to walk. I had my second session with the hypnotherapist on Monday afternoon – it lasted about half an hour but I learned a lot. I’m not going to go into what happened, but it has made me realise that things I used to believe when I was younger are not real… What I will say is this: Philip Larkin was right. They do f*** you up, your mum and dad (‘This Be The Verse’).

I had my second session with Gus on Tuesday morning before work – and it was much better than the first session! I told him how much pain I’d been in and he said that the good news is it will never feel like that again… And he was right. My second session, although longer, seemed somehow easier. I did a 20-minute warm-up on the bike, followed by some weights for my upper and lower body, and then some great stretching. And I could even walk the next day! He told me that the three sessions on my own should be just cardio – and at least 45 minutes long.

I went back to the gym on Friday morning and had a yoga class on Sunday morning. It was a really good class – I was able to do more than I could before and even my teacher commented that I looked stronger. Result!

On the food side, it has been going well. I haven’t had bread in over a week, I haven’t had carbs at night (apart from a couple of sushi rolls on Thursday) and I’ve been eating my banana and teaspoon of almond butter for breakfast. The alcohol side, hmm. I have cut down on the alcohol – but I’m still over the quantities I should be having! I think, for me, that’s the hardest part.

I haven’t weighed myself this week – but a couple of people have told me that I look like I’ve lost weight. On Friday I actually had to go out and buy a belt (which I don’t usually wear) because the waist of my jeans was way too big. So something is working. Let’s hope next week is even better!
