Weigh-in Wednesday - Week 1

Things are going well so far! 

It has only been a few days but the weight is coming off already! Unfortunately I am really sick this week but I haven't stopped exercising - I have just dialled the intensity right down to 6km walks. Today though I am home from work and am having trouble moving around the house without getting breathless, so I daresay I will be taking today as my rest day.

My nutrition on the other hand has been spot on! I have not had a single chocolate or sugar-filled-processed-anything since the start of the program! I feel amazing! Why I started eating that crap again, I have no idea but I've woken up to it and am now reaping the benefits of eating cleanly.

Now to the nitty gritty... My start weight...

85.0kg

Ouch! The shame!

I don't know if I have ever weighed that much, maybe as a teen but certainly not in the last 10 years or so. I put on SO much weight since Christmas through poor choices and not prioritising myself. I just ate absolute crap and did no exercise whatsoever. It's pretty shameful given how much I learned last year, but as I said in a previous post, I don't think I learned why I over-eat or why I eat crappy foods until now. There have been some hard lessons and I am only now making really good progress from a mindset perspective.

So my goals for this round of 12WBT are mostly weight-based and nutrition based. My fitness is mostly where I want it to be and although I know I can still improve in terms of running pace, I am still injured and I have to be really careful about pushing too hard. My goals are listed below.
