I'm feeling very proud of myself today, I am sitting here at 24 hours post the start of my birthday blast off night at La Tasca and I have still got 4 saved points squirrled away :-))) The details are a little fuzzy, but suffice to say a great time was had by all!
Getting my pool time in today (and also for the gym on Monday) is posing a bit of a challenge due to early closing at the club for the easter weekend, but I am still going to get an hour under my belt this evening and stay on track for the week... I can practically taste that 2lb loss that will get me to my 2 stone lost point and i'm hanging onto it with both hands LOL
Over the last few days I have been giving a lot of thought about where I want to be at in 6 months time, not just from a number on the scale point of view but also in terms of what new experiences I have been able to have and what progress I have made towards my longer-term health and fitness goals. I think that I need to set myself a couple of longer term challenges that can be adjusted to suit as I progress and will be interesting enough to keep me focused. I already have one in place in the form of a 12 month challenge I set myself last month to swim the distance of the widest part of the Red Sea (350km). This one means a lot to me as the Red Sea is the first place I want to go Scuba diving so this challenge feels like a real step on the way to that goal :-) To go with that I think I need a longer challenge to work towards in the gym and maybe also one that involves somethng more real world that I can work on as a change to formal working out at the club - this would be great for over the summer when I won't want to be inside so much.
Will need to have a think about these, any suggestions would be very welcome :-)
Happy Easter! xx
