12WBT +60

Disappointment doesn't even begin to explain my feelings after stepping on the scales this morning.  Yes, there was a loss of 1.4kgs, for which I am more than grateful for, however given I had a great PT session on Friday evening and followed this up with a killer of a walk on Saturday, I thought it might've been at least 2kgs.  I'm kinda saddened it wasn't.  Nevermind.  I'm not going to get down about it - that could end up sabotaging my efforts.  When I looked at the stats page when entering my weight, I smiled.  With the exception of the first week (where there was no change), I've only gone up on two weigh-ins - and then, neither were more than 1kg.  A 100g loss is better than a 100g gain :)

Worked seemed much more like a Friday than a Wednesday today.  Not sure what that was all about.  Managed to get lots of small things achieved - my way of putting off a larger task that I have hanging over my head.  Oddly, it's a task that I'm happy to do but I have to be in the right frame of mind to get done.  It's like some of the domestic chores - you will do anything else but this...knowing you're only putting off the inevitable (I guess losing weight was in the same boat for me, too).  I know I'll buckle down and get stuck into it, it's just a matter of when...and knowing that something more enjoyable is coming up in the next week, I should get this done soon!  Ahh, if only I could win the lottery and retire...

Had my usual Special K, rolled oats & linseed (with yoghurt, blueberries and apples) for brekkie.  I really must start getting into the habit of having a cup of tea with it (am enjoying the nettle tea on the rare occasion I do have a cuppa).  The wrap for lunch was tasty.  I added a boiled egg to it, for a bit of extra flavour.

When I got home and thought about today's exercise, I realised I'd not really been focussing on toning (short of the core work done in the usual DVD).  Dug out the toning one and went through the motions of that.  Phew!  It shows how piss weak my core area is.  I really struggled with most of it (perhaps why I've not done it in a while?).  I think I should add a 10min session of it to my daily DVD stint - just to play it safe and improve on the middle (which is my Archille's heal - not the actual one, of course).  PT wants to move our Saturday morning session to Sunday morning this week.  Not sure if I'm totally happy with this idea, but I don't have much choice in the matter.  I must do a DVD on Saturday morning instead.  Not quite the same as PT, but still...

I know I'm not the world's biggest red meat fan but boy did I enjoy the steak & corn salsa for dinner!  The portion size of steak is perfect for one who's not a great fan.  Don't get me wrong, I do enjoy a good steak - just not terribly often.  It works well with the salsa (without the avocado, of course).  Nice little bursts of flavour in the mouth (not to mention the splashes of colour on the plate).  Deffo keeps me happy.
