I started back on exercise a few weeks ago, doing circuits twice a week, although last week I didn't stick to it. Looking through this thread has given me the enthusiasm to stick to it this week.
Great to see you back. How are you doing? Are you doing circuits at home or at a gym? I keep thinking about joining a gym but I haven't done anything about it yet. I hope you manage to stay motivated this week.
I lost 0.1kg, which is really hardly anything, but it puts me 0.3kg away from my target. I don't think I'm going to make it to my goal before the wedding now. My new job is kind of physical so I should probably take that into account and add a few extra calories to cover that. I've been roped into doing more last minute wedding stuff, so I don't have time to focus on weight/exercise stuff this week. I've heard more stories about my abuser and his break up. Apparently it's still going badly. I have no idea what he's going to be like at the wedding now which is a bit scary. At least before I thought I knew what he would be like. But I still feel pretty confident about it - as long as I don't have to sit near him. It'll be fine if I can just see him from a distance. I'm still really happy with the progress I've made though. I decided to get a tattoo to celebrate (almost) making my goal - except it turned out to be kind of triggering, even though I've known the guy who was doing it for most of my life. It was mainly him having his hands on my neck which was causing me to freak out. I ended up quitting halfway through, so now I have to go back to get it finished this week or else turn up at the wedding with half a tattoo, which would really ruin my look. I have tons of other stuff to do this week too.
I'm looking forward to the whole wedding thing being over. I want to focus on health/fitness stuff more. I need to make some new goals, and maybe try some new things..... I'm not sure what yet. I seem to have a lot of interests so it's hard to narrow it down to one thing. I'd rather be good at one thing than just okay at 12 things. I know that I want to eat better too. I've been doing okay with that, but it could definitely be better.
Does anyone know if the sugar in fruit counts as bad sugar? Occasionally I track my calorie intake online and the amount of sugar I eat is always really high. Fruit is supposed to be good for you, so I can I just ignore that?
