Well, I will tell you now that if I have a maintain, I will be very happy with that!
Chinese New Year has just been so as is tradition, I have eaten aplenty and although my pants aren’t digging in, I definitely feel a little more rotund than usual! I’ve been back on the wagon since Wednesday but not much damage control there I’m afraid!
I start my juice diet today and hopefully day 1 won’t be too bad. I’ve decided to make it similar to step 2 on Cambridge so I will be doing my juices and a small meal in the evening.
(Un)fortunately back in November, I booked a trip to Stirling for this weekend so I’m not sure how it’s going to work! I think there will be a couple more meals here and there during the Sunday and Monday I’m away (plus snacks for the 4 hour drive!) but then I’ll be back on track.
Target for this week: maintain.
Target for next week: -1lb
Until tomorrow guys.. x
This week has been terrible. I’m not going to come up with a load of excuses but basically I fell off the wagon immensely. I definitely need to get my mind into gear and focus on what I’m aiming for. I definitely think I’m up for a gain (again!) this week. I’m going to re-strategise and I’ve decided that I’m going to point for the first half of the week and do filling and healthy for the second half. I’m really struggling with the weekends at the minute and I just go totally overboard. I think if I do F&H at least it will give me a little flexibility whilst hopefully getting me to eat the right thing rather than endless junk and then going over my points!
My aim for last week was to work on my sleeping pattern – major fail there. I’m going to try extra hard this week. Also OH has politely asked me to clear the freezer and cupboards so I’m going to try and forego my weekly shop (big emphasis on try) and use bits I already have. I’m not sure how well that’s going to work for fresh fruit and veg but I do have some frozen I think and some bits left over from my veg box. We shall see.
Until next time.. x
It’s been a while since I’ve had pre-weigh in thoughts so figured I’d tell you how my week went.
As you know I’ve been counting this week and bizarrely enough, I’ve found it easier than Filling and Healthy. I’ve definitely opened my eyes to portion size this week, especially with my Saturday night meal where I more or less made enough for two meals (but it was worth it). I don’t necessarily think I’ve eaten very healthily – I’ve not gone over on my weekly points or anything but I’ve definitely had more than my fair share of treats! I have noticed that I tend to eat under my daily points in the beginning of the week and the closer and closer I get to weigh in, I just want to stuff my face. I’ve only had to venture into my weekly points about half way which is good I suppose but all of them were used in the last two or three days before weigh in.
Exercise wise – I’ve not broken any barriers but I definitely have been more active this week. I’ve walked home from work a few times and oh my, I tried to cycle to work on Saturday and nearly died. If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen that it was my first time on my bike since the Winter before last – pretty much a year and a half ago! Although I can walk the 2 odd miles with only a few aches, cycling nearly killed me. I think I cycled about halfway and walked with my bike the rest and walked home with my bike as I wasn’t sure if I would make it home otherwise! Definitely want to try and build myself up and try and use the bus/car less.
I am hoping for a loss this week. I’d like to say another 2lbs but I’m not sure if upping my exercise will mean I stay the same or gain. I couldn’t make weigh in last week as my group was cancelled due to the Bank Holiday, so I took a cheeky jump on the scales and scared myself back off! We shall see, we shall see…
Until next time.. x
