Day 74 and 75, 76 and 77 Looser shorts

Wow. I am busy.
One assignment after another. It's really hard because I don't think my friends understand when I have to reject them all the time when they ask to go out. That part stresses me out more than the assignments actually.

Day 74 and 75 I did two runs, 30minutes and 45 minutes. It's getting warmer and running is definitely getting harder. Lately I have been running without music to get used to my breathing and running so exposed now that it is daylight saving and nearing summer so it's getting much lighter at night. Lighter and hotter.

Day 76 and 77 I did nothing. 76 was a Tuesday which is the day I'm usually always buggered beyond belief on. And day  77 I had a work induction and just really didn't want to exercise. Soooo I had a Mcflurry instead. Not a good choice, I am aware of that.

Those shorts I was talking about a while ago which were tight when I bought them? They are loose now. A good fit but bordering on a bit loose. At least I have a job now so I can pay for smaller size clothes :-)

I also haven't done strength training for almost 2 weeks now. It's hard to find the motivation because I would rather run any day. Day 78 I will do some strength training.

Day 72 - first compliment, day 73 - size 10 jeans!

Day 72 - I received the first compliment on my weight loss by someone I hadn't seen for many many weeks. They said hey have you lost a hell of a lot of weight? and i said did <person> tell you to say that?? and they said no! and later on they mentioned it again saying 'i really can't believe how much weight you've lost, you're wasting away on us!'.. It felt really good!!!!!!!
Went for a nice lone run too about 45minutes.

Day 73 - my jeans are down a size!!!! I was size 10 Australian and they were just getting too baggy and gross to wear anywhere so i went to the store and tried on some size 11s, but they were still too big so I had to actually ask for size 10. and they look sooo much better. You really need clothes that fit you properly to show off your actual figure. I was so happy!!

Day 68 - No exercise and another McFlurry

It's all in the title.
I'll try some excuses though...
The football grandfinal was on right before dinner. And I had been doing an assignment the whole day. We ordered dinner straight after the football and 15minutes later we ate it. Then it was late...and one of my shows was I got a McFlurry?

Day 67 - Looooooong long run, ultimate calorie burner

7km. 60 minutes. Felt awesome. Did 3km, kept going, finished 5km then thought hey it's time I increase my mileage (or kilometreage) and I went for about another 2km. So my run was around, perhaps just over the 1hour mark. ULTIMATE calorie burner

Made a huge salad that I can dig in to over the next few days. Had a home-made chicken burger and salad for dinner followed by yoghurt and muesli. Wanted more (that run made me ultra hungry) but I resisted temptation and had a green tea.

Tomorrow I will do an easy run and/or indoor bike and hopefully some strength training.

Day 66 - Run and McFlurry

Did strength training in the morning. A 30ish minute run tonight. Then got a McDonalds McFlurry ice cream. 460 calories worth.  And it was AMAZZZZZZING!

Then had a piece of fish. Then had a small bowl of cereal.That was my dinner.

Sat on my arse all day doing uni work. Was good to get out the house.

Day 64 and 65 - Short 3km 20min run

Day 64 - Went for a run with the boy but got a horrible stitch right underneath my rib about 20minutes in and had to stop. Wore my new running bare shorts, so light and airy and comfy!
Had a piece of birthday cake for dessert....

Day 65 - no exercise, had a job interview and it went really well I think! :-)
