Weight loss jars


A friend of mine used jars as a visual for her weight loss and I decided to steal her idea. Because I work in kgs, I've used a marble for every 100g, and although my True Weight is only just over a kg away I've put enough stones in for my ultimate goal weight, which is 2kg under my True Weight.

Tonight I did my workout, mostly with body weight or just the weight of the bar (without the plates on the ends). I feel good, but my triceps are so weak, it's pathetic.

We've been hit with some nasty weather this week, which the old me would have used as an excuse not to get out and exercise, BUT the new me has made sure the treadmill is ready to go in case the rain is too heavy in the morning. (Finally cleared the space around the treadmill so I could unfold it for the first time in months). C25k won't be easy on the treadmill (finding out what speed is easy for me to run at in bursts) but I don't want to miss a session so it will have to do! I CAN DO THIS :-)

Til next time

  1. THIS IS SUCH A GREAT IDEA! I'm doing it when I get home, that's crazy motivation!

    Nice, thanks for sharing.

    Triceps are the weakest point on most women, or so my personal trainer has told me. I know mine are crazy weak. Keep working hard, it will improve, I promise! Consistency is key!

    1. What exercises has your PT got you doing for your triceps?

  2. Great idea! It really does put things into perspective. I think I will do it too - will use dried pasta though as I don't have any pretty marbles :( LOL. I'll do pounds rather than grams, there would be far too many otherwise. Thanks ZG & congrats on getting your fitness routine sorted, you sound well organized and with children that's definitely key.

  4. Awesome idea, I too prefer to go outside rather then run on the treadmill. Luckily I managed to get out this morning - it was surprisingly mild but the most important thing is it was not raining!

    1. Not raining here either so I actually got outside but had a bit of a scare (see todays post)... have you ever had anything like that? What do you do to keep safe?
