New plan in action this week to swim 3 mornings. I will miss Monday morning as it is Aquafit and don’t want to swim twice in one day. I will also miss the morning when I am not at work as I usually go during the day when off work. Let’s see if it makes any difference.
Monday went to the gym earlier and completed everything in the gym and then went on to swim over 100 lengths. Aquafit was funny tonight Jackie had us standing on the waddle and everyone was struggling, falling all over and losing their balance. There were waddles flying out of the water everywhere. The group of ladies were fairly new and was struggling to balance on the waddle. Jackie even had us floating around in the water trying to bend our knees keeping our toes out of the water. I did it but only with my ears under the water and then I could not hear anything. I ended up spinning around in circles.
My great plans all went out of the window when I got home from Aquafit. I developed a headache and felt as I was starting with cold. By midnight was all blocked up; headache; earache and fever. Tuesday got up and went to work but came home early and was off sick Wednesday. I was not physically able to go to the gym but I was eager to get back and was frustrated not being able to do much.
I had plans to swim Tuesday am before work but felt so rough I decided it wasn’t a good idea. I weighed myself Tuesday morning and I had lost 3lb at last. Thursday I had lost weight again I was very happy today having hit the 4 stone marker. How can the scales suddenly drop so much and so quick after all this time.
Feeling rough and no energy I was off work as I needed to rest to make a fast recovery from this nasty cold so had a few early nights and became attached to a game on the computer. Jackie told me “Don’t even think of coming back to the gym until you are well or I will send you home to bed”. I knew I wasn’t fit to attempt the gym even though I was frustrated at knowing my efforts for the last few weeks had now finally paid off and here I was now unfit to go. Will I end up putting some weight back on sat doing nothing?
Sunday I went to get weighed and although I had put a 2 pound back on since Thursday the scales at the gym showed a 4kg loss. Most of the measurements were also down. I was frustrated at my BMI being 30.1 as once under 30 I will be in the overweight range not the obese range.
I plan to try the gym Monday but as I was out of breath just walking from the car park to the gym to get weighed maybe I will struggle. Jackie advised me not to do my programme but a basic programme initially.
