Making 2012 a happy, healthy beginning.
Ask me anything
So I’m back after 3 months - had a fabulous holiday in Florida where I ate an immense amount of a la cart foods and yummy treats. I then returned home and fell off the wagon - now Christmas has passed and I have an even stronger goal for losing weight…. I’M GETTING MARRIED!!!
So I will be starting my new year inspired and ready to rock! My new blog will be posting my wedding inspirations and ideas but I will continue to keep writing here for my food and fitness thoughts and goals.
2013? BRING IT ON!
Well I finaly got weighed at group and after my 2 naughty weeks and obe good the result was I put on 1lb.
Was fairly happy with that so am being very good again this week in the hope that Ill begin on the downward track again next week. And I mean very good… Less that 5 syns a day!
Well I missed SW on Tuesday as I missed my damn train from London so I arrived as it finished - so despite dreading it I was pretty fed up. I wanted to see the damage to have a focus for this week but hey ho. I looked with my Mama for other groups where I could go just to weigh but none fitted in with my work schedule.
The next day I decided I needed to know so I took myself off to Boots to weigh and had put on 2lbs according to their scales. I was convinced it would be loads more - and still am actually so I have been ultra strict this week just in case its going to creep up on me next week.
I spent my day off cooking - lasagne, scotch eggs and sweet potato & onion soup - all SW receipies of corse! And then even prepped some veges to add to meals at convenience. I also did a shop and got lots of the good stuff. And went to the gym and sweated out.
So im definatly back in the zone and feeling the summer body push! Kept my syns at 3.5 yesterday and 2.5 today - off to gym in the morning and might even make some more soup!
Looking forward to Tuesday weigh in!
Ok I think this is the first time I have been dreading a weigh in so much I kinda dont want to go… BUT I am going…. So will report the damage when Im back.
I must not get in a bad mood! I must not think I have failed! And I must remember I had 2 weeks of eating badly!
Then I must go and do a fruit and lunches shop on my day off tomorrow and prep a menu and food for the week!
Am on holiday this week - had a half pound gain on Tuesday at group and then booked the following week (yesterday weigh in) off as decided I wanted a break.
I felt I was bored of the healthy food and trying so hard so I gave myself the week off. A full week. Had lots planned - went to Brighton with Daniel for a few days, caught up with friends and family and just enjoyed socialising and eating anything.
The result is I had a fab time but wont be weighing in until next week so I have this week to stop eating the bad stuff, get back on the good and make up for the weeks break I had.
I hadnt written any food down until today i decides to reflect on what I had eaten (and not beat myself up about it) but realised I hadnt had fruit or gone to the gym, and I havent eaten in for breakfast, lunch or dinner in 5 days!!! Chinese, Harvester, Frankie & Bennys, Nandos, McD breakfast, Bella Italia, Yates, Cafe, Candyfloss, Doughnuts and wine!
Now im craving fruit, water and my routine. So on way home today from Brighton and need to stop en route to eat something - but I want the good stuff now so am thinking Jacket Potato.
Whatever the damage on Tuesday I must remember I needed it and it was worth it.
I had 5 syns ALL day… AND THEN had a bloody Crunchie!!! I dont even like them that much - but totally gave in! I need to get off my bum and go to the gym - but no Im sitting on the sofa! Grrr - I know I’ll be mad at myself tomorrow at weigh-in! :(
Did a BIG shop last night… and bought lots of yummy but ALL healthy food - the only food even containing syns that I bought were some new crisps that my SW group have been talking about ‘Velvet Crunch’. And I didnt buy bananas - despite my mad love for them - as I am eating too many and have wondered if that is a factor in my slow weight loss.
So am happy that this week is going to be a successfull one!
