Mama OWL Blog: Weight & Inch Loss | Week 18 Update

Weight & Inch Loss | Week 18 Update

Saturday, 9 May 2015

It's the end of round three of Project 6 Pack, and I'll be completely honest and say that I have come further than I ever imagined. Someone like me who wouldn't even consider running (unless it was literally for my life, because... running...) or exercising beyond the odd swim or long walk is actually regularly exercising and enjoying it. It feels amazing, I feel amazing and I am really proud of myself.

I haven't been as strict during this round, and have perhaps made one or two (or three) poor choices but I intend to have a 'reset' for my fourth round and to put my all into it again. I have struggled with sugar cravings more this round, which I have found really difficult and something I need to work on the management of.

P6P has a new timetable this time and I am looking forward to trying some different classes at different times and seeing how they work out for me. I might end up just going back to my 'usual' classes as I am somewhat a creature of habit, but we will see how they go, and how I manage to fit them into my usual daily routine. Up until this point I have been attending 6/7 classes a week, sometimes 2 in a day (Mondays/Fridays) so I'm excited at the possibility of being able to do more. Exercise can truly be addictive but hey - there are worse things to be addicted to, so I'm happy with that.

I took part in the 'Monster Run' organised by my PTs, which was an early Sunday morning start and a 2k blitz around a country park. It was exhausting but so much fun even though the weather wasn't great. I was carrying a bit of a tender knee from the week before so I had to amend some of my workout, but Laura & Amirah kept a close eye & made sure that I didn't injure it any further, and was still getting a challenging workout. We made good use of a bin bag as a make shift yoga mat for ab work!


My new measurements bring me to a total loss since January 4th of 18kg & 25 inches.


I have signed up for the Bath 5K Race For Life this year to raise money for Cancer Research UK. I would be so grateful for your support, if you'd like to sponsor me please visit and/or share my fundraising page which is www.justgiving.com/jooleroo.

Thank you! I look forward to sharing my next update with you, and letting you know how I got on at my very first 5K.
