Your destiny lies in your own hands

What a terrible week – in terms of eating and the gym. I was still recovering from my birthday party/weekend on Sunday morning and my feet still hurt from wearing heels for two nights in a row. My sister was also visiting Dubai so there was a lot of eating out.

I skipped the gym on Sunday.

I went to the gym on Monday (Pete was on holiday), intending to repeat Week 7 Day 1 of the 10k Runner app, but really I did my own thing:

  • Walk x 1 min
  • Run x 4 min
  • Walk x 1 min
  • Run x 4 min
  • Walk x 1 min
  • Run x 9 min
  • Cool down x 5 min

And it wasn’t too bad. And it was my fastest 3 km time so far.

I went back to the gym on Tuesday but I decided I’d just walk for 3 km.

And I did nothing for the rest of the week. Unless you count traipsing around the Dubai Mall for endless hours exercise.

Total distance covered this week?

Low point of the week? Only working out twice – and eating and drinking far too much.

High point of the week? Enjoying my birthday celebrations!

Weight loss? Well, I made a terrible discovery. I noticed that depending on where I stood on my scales, my weight varied – sometimes by up to 1 kg or more. Those scales are ancient so I decided to invest in a Withings body analyser – and they connect to the WiFi at home and are very high tech, etc. But when will I hit my goal weight of 65 kg? According to the Libra weight-tracking app that question is now ‘NA’.
