Weekly Goal Plan to lose weight with Steps and Potential Risk Areas and Pitfalls.











 

Hello Everyone,


So with this goal, I figured a needed a plan or steps. I’ve started with working backwards - it’s like working destination first and then how to get there. Then I worked out the potential pitfalls and risk areas.

 Steps Work from Goal Plan

  • On Sunday, weigh myself at Virgin Active aim to be 81kg - yes still keeping with the one pound target. 
  • Sunday morning walk to Virgin Active to get weighed - and have a nice hot tub and steam room. 
  • Walk up stairs for a week instead of taking the lift/elevator 
  • Walk to up a hill after work at least three times a week.
  •  Do twenty minutes light cardio at least three times a week - sheduled - Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 
  • Avoid deserts at work all week, and no cakes or pastries at the weekend either. 
  • Plan lunches and dinners in advance - at least a day ahead. 

 Risk Areas and Potential Pitfalls 

 These are potential obstacles and barriers to achieving my weight loss - at least so I'm aware of them in advance. Most of them are based on my moods at the time, and are pretty much the different versions of the same thing.
  •  Working late and getting too tired to cook or make anything - this tends to lower my resistance as I pick up stuff on the way home - normally a reduced price bakery products or eating a sugar laden cereal . 
  • Working under pressure or feeling under pressure to deliver - I normally have a chocolate bar or something sweet. 
  • Getting too tired after work so I just literally forget the plan or bypass it getting upset so I just get what I want instant gratification if something nice is on display 'This-time-won't-matter' mindset.
  •  Feeling 'this-is-a-once-in-a-while' treat I can't let go 
  • Supermarket reducing really expensive pastries at the end of day 
  • Bored with eating healthily or just generally boredom 
  •  Feeling as I'm depriving myself or going without when I just want to eat what I want
  •  Not actually planning meals or following the plan
  • Feeling the goal is unimportant in the short term and I can start tomorrow. 
  • Buying sugary cereal!
  • Giving in to temptation.
  • Eating late at night. Like super late - however this also ties in with working late. There is cascading effect on some things.
There are simple solutions though they aren't easy. I could simply avoid going to the supermarket after work. It's more difficult than it sounds. I could plan and cook weekly but I like fresh food and frozen stuff thens to hibernate in my freezer for a very very long time.

Check-ins?

I haven't figured this one yet. So simple but still a lot. Perhaps just a review at the end with lessons learnt. To be fair this will be an on-going goal until I get to a reasonable weight - basically fit into my old clothes again.

See you later

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

£8 in coins So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins.  Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that.... How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Weekly update. Verdict on Check It movie, lack of black male role models and normal boring stuff. Oh and I'm still fat.

Hello everyone! So new focus. Yes, I never know what to write about. Never know what’s interesting so I’m just going to write for myself…if that makes sense. There are slew of blogs trying to change the world, radicalise the world, and revolutionise the world so I’m not doing that here. Not am I going to think - oh will people find this interesting or boring. To be frank, I’m a pretty boring person but hey ho let me write.  I’m thinking of changing my gym. Well right now I’m a member of Virgin Active Health Club which styles itself as a life style gym, and to be honest the only thing I use is the hot tub, sauna and steam room. In the three years I’ve been a member, I’ve only been in the gym about ten times, gone for two classes - they are always fully book so I only really just use the hydro-pool/spa, and steam room. I’m a member of the Islington Angel branch which is were all the posh liberals are.  This is a picture of the spa, and pool. The pool can be a bit chill at times.
