Today was a very different Tuesday for me. I usually have a few ladies round and we sit and spend the day sewing. They didn’t come today though. I have however had another training session instead.
Jenny told me that she thinks I need to up my exercise and have more than one session a week with my personal trainer. So today we started.
For a good few years now I have been boxing. I love boxing – there is something really satisfying about punching someone. I don’t go round punching people as a rule but it is really enjoyable when you are told to. Ok, so he is holding pads and I punch them, but it’s still good.
For about 6 months now I haven’t done any boxing at all as I have been doing some HIIT training instead. Today, as we have added in another one, it gave us the opportunity to get out the boxing gloves, brush off all the cobwebs and use them again.
I didn’t realise how much I missed it. I really enjoyed it too.
I have been told that I have a really good punch and I put a lot of power behind it. I think it was because I put all my weight behind each punch. Let’s face it, it was a lot of weight.
I thought I might have lost some of my power and at first I really wasn’t as good as I used to be but it soon came back. Even with the lack of food at the moment.

Had training again this morning and I walked 2.2 miles on the treadmill, all on an incline.
I also did 150 sit ups followed by 20 minutes of boxing. My boxing was so much better than last week, I think my strength has come back.
Before I started this diet, I used to get really tired half way through the day, even if I hadn’t done much that day. Now I have so much more energy, I can last the whole day now.
I also used to have reflux which caused me great problems when eating. My food would cause acid from my stomach to come back up it would cause pain in my throat and on very rare occasions I would throw it back up. I have managed to control it for many years by drinking water between bites. I have found lately though that I haven’t done this for a while.
I am very happy with these improvements I hope they continue.

Had another training session today, it was the first time I got my boxing gloves out since the detox.
I feel like I have lost a lot of my power. I don’t seem to have the energy that I had when I was consuming more calories.
I felt a little disheartened today as my weight really is not budging at all. I went out for a healthy meal for dinner. A change of scenery and new flavours really did help.

I have had a personal trainer for about 8 years. Today is my first session this year, I usually go on the tread mill and then do boxing. I have been known on occasions to lift weights and do ab work too. Boxing is what I love the most there is something (I shouldn’t say this but) there is something exhilarating about punching someone. You can get rid of all your frustrations and its good for self defence.
However the weight loss is still very slow.
I get weighed in every week, and this week I was the same as what I was before Christmas, which was very demoralising.
We took some measurements today though:
57.5 inches around waist
56 inches around hips
29.75 inches around left arm
30 inches around right arm
20 inches around left leg
21 inches around right leg
