4.7kg down this week :)

I'm so proud of myself.  I've lost 4.7kg this week :)

I put it down to a few things.  I was quite sick (cold sick) and I had a really sore tummy all week as well.  I went to the gym once but also went for a really nice walk on the Sunday.  I also used OptiFast for 2 meals per day (on most days) and I also had my fill.  Things have been going so well this week :)

I went to the Gym today.  I am still a bit chesty so I took it a little bit easy.  I did some walking, some running and a lot of upper body work.  I'm going to feel it tomorrow.  I have written myself up a program that I am going to stick to when it comes to weights. 

For my upper body, I'll do the following...

Dumbbell Shoulder Presses - 4 sets with 8 reps
Cable upright row - 3 sets with 8 reps
Dumbbell rear delt raise - 3 sets with 8 reps
One arm cable curl - 3 sets with 8 reps
Barbell Curl - 2 sets with 8 reps
Dumbbell concentration curl - 2 sets with 8 reps
Dumbbell triceps kickbacks - 3 sets with 8 reps
One arm dumbbell triceps ext - 3 sets with 8 reps
One arm reverse push down - 3 sets with 8 reps

I haven't worked out a lower body plan yet.  I'll work that out tomorrow.  I'll alternate my weights and cardio days but will always do at least 30 minutes of cardio per session.  I know this way, I'll see some amazing results really fast.

Tonight when I did it, I took note of all the heaviness of the weights that I was using and may increase them next time depending on how I feel over the next few days.

I'm so happy that I'm back into the swing of things :) I can't wait to see myself transform.

I've also started using 'My Fitness Pal' and my name is 'iamabeetle' on there for anyone who wants to add me :)

Hope everyone has had a fantastic weekend :) I know I certainly did xo


  1. Ta for the weights training info. When are you putting the rest up?

  2. Hi Anon,

    I need to write it up first :) I'll hopefuly have it posted over the next few days. Keep an eye out :)


  3. Hi,

    What was your new starting weight this time around? You said in your first post after the long break that you had put on more weight during your time not posting. You had gone back to just under 200. So did you end up going back up over? Sorry, I'm not meaning to pry. I am kinda using your info to race you :-) Sounds dumb I know, but our weight is pretty close and it keeps me on track if I can stay in front of you. It's like having a silent weight loss racer - lol. It keeps me honest.

    If you don't want to say, no drama.

    Keep up the great work. Your determination is so positive to read and they way you just keep getting back up!

  4. Hi Steph,
    It's so good to see you back in business! Your spirit, strength and heart are amazing.

  5. Hey Kate :) thank you for your lovely comments xo I am going to come back to the forum soon as well - I miss everyone there :) xo

    Hi Anon :) I do want to say but don't want to! lol. But I will metion it in my next blog. That doesn't sound stupid at all (racing me). That's a great way to keep yourself motivated :) and to keep me motivated as well! I did go over 200kg again but I am sure it's for the last time. I'll weigh myself now before I blog and hopefully, it's just a tad under 200kg :)

  6. Oh, and my starting weight was 205.3kg :)
