One week done! I now understand why you switch routines after 10 days - after 7 days I'm pretty well versed on the routine for my current level and in terms of fitness, I am definitely making strides forward. Tomorrow will be my first attempt at doing the workout in the morning, I just hope I can get the energy to cope with it at 6 o'clock in the morning!
In terms of food and calorie counting, I've been successfully "zig-zagging" since Friday. Today I was back down to 1300, having had a 1600 calorie day yesterday. I have yet to weigh myself after last week's gain and since starting zig-zagging, so it remains to be seen if this is making a difference.
I am trying to resist temptation to step on the scales until Wednesday at the earliest. I am the first to admit that I am an obsessive weigher. Most weeks I weigh myself three or four times, sometimes more! This is not healthy behaviour because of course each time I hop on the scales I am expecting a loss - and of course this isn't always the case!
Due to my gain last week, I am now trying to convince myself that the longer I leave weighing myself, the more surprised I will be. The flip-side of that, however, is that if my calorie zig-zagging is having a negative affect and causing me to gain weight - it will be that much later before I discover it! Oh the dilemma! So, we shall see if I weigh tomorrow or Wednesday - but I think it will definitely happen at some point this week just so I can check I am on the right track.
Tomorrow evening will be spent at the Chelsea Flower Show. I am really looking forward to this and have wanted to go to the show for some time now. I am hoping that there will be some healthy food choices available, so I can manage to stay within my calorie limit - but I'm going to a party as well, where I know there will be wine, so I may be unable to resist! Photos of the show will follow, I'm hoping for lots of inspiration!
