Hi Kate,

Sometimes the scales are not the best indicator. If you are undergoing changes in your body composition where you are adding muscle and dropping fat the scales may prove a disappointing measure. 

Are you feeling fitter, stronger, looking leaner although theses methods are far more subjective and qualitative they can sometimes tell more of a story than purely relying on quantitative indicators like the scale.

One change noticed: legs feel firmer. Can't say I have noticed much else happening except for getting increasingly restless at the desk!

Sounds good, Kate :) I totally agree with Darin, the scale doesn't tell you anything about your body composition.

Hurrah! This is after 4 weeks of intense* six times a week 40 mins tempo-based cardio and one light deload week.

*I'm enjoying the novelty of actually sweating and that itchy feeling of a drop forming on the point of the chin :wacko:

Hi @Kate Abernethy - just want to say kudos for putting up your goals and progress online! 

I've thought about this but haven't got the guts to do so ... well done and good luck! X

Many factors caused this, the biggest being away from training and cardio whilst on a walking* holiday (no sweat involved). Expecting to be lighter next time. 

*First part of the Camino de Santiago for those interested.

Not a good month for consistent training and in fact I will sign off here and come back when I've built my house. :)
