One step at a a time

I did plan on having an early night tonight – so much for that happening! I shall write my blog and then go to bed.

I did a lot in the way of exercise yesterday. As mentioned in my last blog, I planned on walking up the stairs at work to start practicing for my stair climb. I didn’t bring my sneakers to work with me (I am SO unorganised) so, I did it in my thongs :) I did 11 floors and did it in just over 7 minutes. I was really puffed and that’s about it. I didn’t have any burning in my legs or anything like that. I was sweaty but that was to be expected. I thought that I’d be hurting in some way but no, I wasn’t at all. I have decided that I need to do the stairs in each break that I have at work to train for the stair climb. I am happy that I did it as I KNOW that I can make it now. I will just have to work toward it.

I went to the Gym last night. I got called a Whale when I got in the pool. It’s the first time that I have been picked on because of my weight at the Gym so, I’ve done pretty well so far! I wasn’t particularly pleased about being called a name however, it made me swim without stopping for 32 laps as I didn’t want to get out whilst they were in the water in fear of being called something else by them. When I got out of the pool, I went and had a shower and got dressed to do a work out on the equipment. When I was filling up my drink bottle, 2 girls walked past and one said to the other ‘there’s so many overweight people at this Gym’. I felt like saying ‘really?’. It’s not a Miss Universe pageant, it’s a Gym! I got on the bike then the treadmill and then I went home.

It’s funny how I still get called names and people still notice me because of my weight but it just doesn’t bother me now. I am SO over it. I couldn’t give a f**k about what they say. I know that I am doing my best to lose my weight. Whatever they need to say is fine by me. I know I am doing the right thing and that’s all that matters.

I made a lovely soup for dinner tonight. I cooked it in the slow cooker. I was planning on bringing some to work for lunch tomorrow but I couldn’t keep what I had down. I think it’s because the veggies are a bit too hard. I am going to blend it and then I can bring it in. It was so yummy and so good for me :)

There’s not a lot else to report in the world of Stephanie tonight. I am going to take my measurements on Thursday. I shall put them up once I am done.

Hope everyone is having a good week :)
