Weigh In Tuesday : 06.12.16

Hi guys,

So it’s been a long while since I’ve done a weigh in. Since my hours got upped at my second job, weight loss has flown out of the window – I was getting really unhealthy, not eating for 9-10 hours and then having a massive meal late at night when I had time and drinking full sugar drinks to get me through 13-15 hour shifts on my feet with a 5 minute break here and there.

Not fun at all. My hours have been cut back a bit to allow for a day to work from home. This means that I have four days at home and three days away. Things have settled a little now so I have to get back on the wagon and what better time than just before Christmas :/

Anyhow, I haven’t weighed myself since July. Even my scales had died, it has been that long! I remember I had just been ill and I managed to get to 14st 12lb. I have since, over the last 4 and a half months, put on 4lbs to weigh in at 15st 2lb. Not bad I suppose, considering I was getting to a point I was so exhausted, I was permanently eating out or bringing takeaways home.

So, onto bigger and better things. I’m going to try and stay away from the mince pies at work and try and eat healthier at the restaurant. Drinking more water is key and eating more regularly so I lay off the full sugar lemonade. I’m so lethargic and suffering from insomnia at the moment so a regular schedule would probably do me the world of wonders. I need my energy and spark back!

Goal for next week: 1lb loss (let’s start small to begin with!).

Until next time.. x
