One-liner Wednesday – the numbers look good!

I’m not talking about the epic Twosday yesterday. Although I did take pleasure in writing the date into our team meeting minutes.

Nor am I taking about Linda G Hill’s fabulous receipt, featured in her blog.

I’m wittering on about the digits on my scales! After a couple of weeks languishing on a plateau, I’m pleased to report I’m off it. In fact I’ve lost a whole stone (14lbs for my US friends and about 7kg for my European friends) since the New Year!

Woohoo! These are numbers worth celebrating!

One-liner Wednesday – Oops! I may have overestimated my abilities…

What have I been up to this time? Well… I’ve hit the dreaded weight loss plateau in which no poundage has departed from my body over the past two weeks.

How annoying! But I’m not beaten. I have a few tricks up my sleeve. I can add I some strength work (which I’ve avoided for 2years) and I can add some sprint work on my stationary bike ride.

I opted for both! Not only that, I followed the strength workout to the letter! Loads of reps per set and loads of sets! I could barely walk afterwards.

In my defence, I did stretch afterwards. However, no amount of stretching could undo the damage. My quads and hamstrings are screaming. My inner leg muscles are equally annoyed and my butt is on fire!

Needless to say, I’ve overdone it. There’s nothing to do but rest the muscles, gently stretch them out and restart next week.

This time I’ll do fewer reps and sets!!
