Getting there, slowly…

Standard

Ok, so I have been back on the Celebrity Slim for a week now. I started off at 117.8kg and am now weighing in at 115.6kg, which I am most pleased about. Yes it’s nowhere near the 7 lbs I lost in the first week when I did CS in December, but it’s definitely all moving into the right direction. After all, this is the lowest I have weighed in about three years, maybe even four. Mr. W. ( yes he is back on the scene) is all worried that I will weigh less than him in a couple of weeks, which makes me giggle. It’s been years since I weighed less than my partner.

I really need to start working out more regularly. Now that my anaemia is much better, not 100% gone but a lot better, I really should commit a bit more to my workouts. Going to do some Yoga I think, this might just help my knackered rotator cuff too, as swimming is becoming a bit of a nightmare because of it. I enjoy the swims, but Christ are they painful and the night after it is particularly painful despite heat treatment etc..  Other than that I am fine healthwise. I have a lot more energy, now that I actually have some blood to pump around my body and I feel really motivated. Let’s hope everything stays as well as it is going now 🙂

Back in the pool…What a Feeling!

Flashdance... What a Feeling

Today was quite a special day for me, well given the fact that it is now 16.41 it still is a special day. Today I had my first proper swim in three years… half a mile in half an hour. Back then it would have been nothing, as I used to swim a lot more and a lot faster than that, but today it was amazing. Feeling the water and my normally rather clumsy body work together like clockwork, feeling every single muscle in my body for the first time in ages was pretty cool. In fact, I was so happy I almost cried.
