It’s been a while 

So I’ve been away for a bit. Not as in out of the country and exploring weird tropical islands that have no wifi. I just haven’t had anything to blog about. 

I have no real updates on the weight loss as I havent been to the gym in a while. 

I have had some pretty major back issues return and it hasn’t been pretty. 

I had to get a second MRI scan to see how much the discs in my back had moved and it’s looking like surgery is required. 

No gym, no sports, no anything really. I’ve kept up the healthy eating but I’ve got to the stage where I need to be exercising more to see better results. I can’t even go for a walk as it hurts too much. 

The surgery will hopefully happen in a few weeks and after that the long road to recovery. 

I’ve done this all before, 2 years ago, so I know what to expect. 

Wish me luck. I’ll be back.

Week 8

I didn’t turn up for my official weigh in this week but have been killing it at the gym. My legs are still sore after 2days and walking down stairs is an issue. 

100 weighted squats along with weighted lunges, burpees and skipping have taken there toll. Thankful tonight I’m on chest and arms so legs get a rest. 

On a side note my prolapsed disc isn’t getting better. Might need another trip to the doctors. 

Week 6 

Still not 100% in the wellness scale. I have been suffering from some sort of man flu/flu/cold sort of thing. Add this on top of my lack of gym time and I was afraid to get on the scales this morning. 

In saying that I have lost another 5lbs this week. I’m now below my original target weight. Although it’s not great being sick all weekend it’s had it’s benefits. 

I’ll just have to prepare my self that when I’m feeling better that the next few weeks weight is going back on. 

Stall

I have came to a halt over the last few days. I haven’t been to the gym in 4 days and haven’t really been following my eating plans. I had toast the other night, which is the first time I’ve had beard in almost 4 weeks. 

Hot buttery toast. So bad but so good. 

Cold, wet, dark nights are leading to no motivation to go outside again, once home from work a warm fire and a glass of red wine seems a better idea. Need to kick start myself again and get back at it. 

Paying for a gym membership and not using it should be motivation enough. 

Summer bodies are made in winter.
