Here are my very first pictures for Round 2:

My Week 4 pictures:

Finally, my Week 12 pictures from Sunday:

I’m actually really happy with my progress.Β It’s interesting to see my total measurement changes and pictures though, as I don’t always feel that much smaller than before.

I took a sneaky peak at the scales again this morning because I was planning to write this update tonight, and I am down to 63.6. I’ve lost 1.2kg in the last 6 days!!

News for Round 3

I’m going to really work on maintaining an active lifestyle overall, for a couple of weeks there I was really living some of the costs of not exercising/eating well. I’m not sure which video it was but I can remember Mish saying that as soon as she stops exercising, that’s when the mind games start and that’s absolutely what it was like. Now that I’m back in the swing of things I already feel stronger, healthier and more powerful, both mentally and physically, and I know how I will feel if I stop. However, I also feel like I learnt a very valuable lesson about not being too hard on myself.

I’m going to be ‘going it alone’ for Round 3 as Hugh has lost interest in the exercise. I think this will actually be the perfect opportunity for me to gain some of that self-respect Mish was talking about, and to really get in touch with who I am, my strengths and weaknesses, and what my goals are.

I have joined the running club at my university which conveniently meets on Monday’s and Wednesday’s. Running alone has been one of the hardest things for me to wrap my head around so this has been really helpful to counteract the mind games.

The club actually set up a ‘beep test’ for us yesterday and we will be doing one on the first Monday of every month which provides another opportunity for me to test my fitness. They also meet for one swimming session every Monday morning, and one gym session which I’m hoping to use for some proper weights training.

Additionally, this time I’m committing to this blog, and my fellow bloggers, no matter how hard things get. I love to blog but I also felt the most on track when I was posting here regularly. I have so much more to learn and to share and I’ve loved getting to know you all over the last 12 weeks, and I know I’ll enjoy getting better acquainted with new bloggers as well.

I’ve met some very special people through this blogging experience and I want to thank you all for being there for me and for continuing to inspire me through your posts.

Also!Β I am now the Secretary of the newly formed Doctor Who Society at uni!

Bring on Round 3.
