This week I’ve concentrated on burning fat. Pushing my self hard on my air bike, doing my abs and core exercises and doing work around the house. The results speak for themselves and I’ve lost more weight than I have in a long time.
Starting weight: 238lbs
Loss this week: 2.5lb
Current weight: 197lbs
Total loss: 41lbs
Target weight: 175lbs
Weight left to lose: 22lbs
Last weekend feels like a distant memory now, there has been so much going on this week. I kept to a strict diet Saturday and went on the air bike for 30 minutes. Sunday my diet went out the window as we had people over in the day and we were so tired in the evening we decided to have a Chinese takeaway.
I got straight back to being strict through the week sticking to my planned meals, drinking water and only snacking on fruit. I don’t really get food cravings anymore but I’m sure that will change with Christmas around the corner.
Monday I started my abs and core work out again. This alongside using the air bike, I thought would be a big ask but so far it’s going well. I said that I’d use the air bike Sundays Tuesdays and Thursdays but with busy weekends I’ll just fit it into either day which is what happened this week.
I really want to be burning fat as much as possible not just by dieting but now through exercise. As I keep going I’ll be looking to add new workouts each day. Hopefully, this will end with me having a great workout routine that I can continue will. I’m not just looking to lose weight but to get fit as well.
These are the recordings given from my air bike after each session this week. Obviously, it is impossible for the bike to know how many calories I’ve burned especially when it doesn’t ask for my weight. But, it is a good guide to see if I should have burned more or less than other workouts.
I have been trying to improve every time however I started Thrudays exercise a bit too enthusiastically and wore myself out a lot quicker and had to really push myself at the very end to keep going.
I will be carrying on my exercises and pushing to improve further next week, as well as staying on track with my diet.
We are going back to see family again this weekend so another busy one but I will be back on the bike Sunday burning fat again.
