Two hours up the gym today, and still hungry after dinner

Jan 11, 2016 | 1 comment


Just had dinner, and I’m still hungry! We had what has become a favourite, peanut butter noodles with loads of veg and a tiny bit of chicken. It was tasty, satisfying, but now, half an hour later, my tummy is rumbling again.

Peanut noodles

I’ve started a 12 week program at the gym. My new coach went through everything with me on Thursday and I did an hour long stretch out on Friday. I go to the gym on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. So my coach has written 3 different workouts, and that stretch out.  Today, I did what turned out to be a 2 hour workout. Blimey.  Really enjoyable tho.

They are so encouraging up there and several times through the session today, as a trainer passed by, they asked how I was doing, or corrected my technique. And the coach who is helping me came to find me several times to see if I was Ok.

They say that the program leaves nothing to chance. They go through bio-mechanics, targets and goals, and nutrition. He has put me on 2850 calories, and that is a 200 calorie deficit. The first few days I felt bloated and that I had eaten too much.  Now, as I start doing the workouts, what the coach predicted is happening. He said that my appetite would go through the roof, and it has.

I’m trusting in the process and hoping that if I do as I’m told, which I  am, they will get me to lose significant amounts of weight. We shall see.

I didn’t expect to feel hungry eating 2850 calories!
