Weight

It’s been a while since I’ve done a post about my weight… mainly because I have platuaed with it an after losing 23lbs in almost 3 years… I am now simply maintaining my weight.

In fact it’s remained really steady over the last 3-4 months or so… nice and settled at around 124lbs.  🙂 (After losing almost a stone or so since June last year – I’m afraid to say without actively trying – sorry!)

The graph below is from a handy little iphone app I have: Tactio Target Weight app 

I keep my vitals recorded in a spreadsheet and they eventually get updated to the Health page of this blog.

How did I lose the weight?

Exercise Fitness White Clip ArtI’m really active.  I train 5-6 days a week, 7-10 hours a week.  I run, swim, bike, spin, walk and do circuit classes as well as an Insanity DVD workout I’ve recently got into. 

I walk to work and take the stairs whenever the opportunity arises.  I also teach swimming for 4 hours a week, 40 weeks a year – standing on the poolside, walking up and down and showign kids and adults how to swim.

I try to eat healthily: a lot of varied food, including the odd mars bar, chip supper and chinese takeaway.  I eat little, often and try to include fruit and veg where I can.  I also drink lots of water and avoid fizzy juice and coffee.

I now seem to have got the balance of eating and exercising just right where I’m not losing weight anymore and not putting any on.   Yey!  😀  I’m at my ideal training weight and I feel the best I have done in years.

I’ve lost inches – I’ve had to buy new clothes and underwear, but I know I’m feeling great and I’m in the best shape of my life!

If I want to reach my ideal ‘Racing Weight‘ (120lbs)… I still have a bit to go (-4lbs) but I’m more than comfortable with how I am at the moment with no plans of aiming for 120 at the moment. 😀
