Update – It’s Been a While!

Hi guys,

I’m sorry, I’m sorry! I promised I wouldn’t ditch you guys and then I did. Life got a bit crazy as usual.

So what’s new? So. Big News. I decided to shake the anonymity of my blog and instagram and venture into YouTube. I uploaded my first video detailing my journey so far tonight and just pressing publish took me around ten minutes! Hopefully I will be able to post  on my blog concurrently and it’ll keep me on track. Watch my video here.

As you may or may not know if you’re following my instagram, December and January have been a bit of a write off for me. I had my epiphany at the end of January and kicked my own ass to get back on the low carb train. It’s been hard. I’ve found it difficult to not snack and indulge in the odd biscuit or chocolate that are forever loitering in the office at the minute! It’s not helping my weight or my skin. Eek.

So the week (31st Jan) started off shaky but it’s day 4 now and I’m feeling pretty good. I’ve had the weekend off (rare and such bliss!) and it’s helped to keep busy and not having bad snacks at home has curbed the sweet tooth. I’m feeling a lot brighter eyed and busy tailed. Plus, I’m filming a What I Ate this week plus a weigh in at the end so keep an eye out. AND 9 months after we moved, I’ve finally unpacked at the flat >.<

Next thing on my list is to get back to the gym. Since October, I’ve injured my wrist. I started seeing a physiotherapist at the start of January but the pain is still so great that we can’t actually do any exercises yet. I have a type of RSI called de Quervain’s syndrome which I’ve found is a million times worse than carpal tunnel. It means swimming is off the menu (which SUCKS) and I’m losing the will to live trying to get myself to run. I have booked to see an acupuncturist on recommendation from the physio. It isn’t for a couple of weeks yet but hopefully that will sort the pain. Last week it was so relentless, I barely slept all week and you can imagine how cranky I was!

That’s all my news for now. I’ll be posting a weight update soon and hopefully it won’t take too long to edit the food diary down.

Until next time.. x

Back to the Blogging World

Hi everyone,

It’s been quite a while since I last posted – hope you’re all well and well on the way in your weight loss journey.

Quite a few things have been happening in my life at the moment. As my last post mentioned, me and OH broke up and I have since helped a family friend start up a company so it’s been quite hectic on the life front. I’m also back in therapy as OH is leaving the country early December and there’s still stuff that needs to be resolved on that front.

So, the reason I’ve made an appearance is that I decided that I don’t want to end 2015 at the same weight I began so I am kicking myself back into gear. As you may know when I last posted I was on WeightWatchers and kind of getting there when I felt like it. Due to my schedule over the next few months, I decided to give the Cambridge Weight Plan a try after watching Elaine Jones on YouTube.

I know the plan can seem quite controversial and I will explain the plan in a little more depth once I’ve finished my first week. The reason I chose it was because I’ve had many days where I’m working 9-midnight and not had time to prep meaning I’m just eating whatever is around me (in other words – junk!) so I’m hoping that because most of the meal replacements are just there and waiting, I’m less likely to throw my hard work away because I’m tired.

I met up with my Cambridge consultant today and she is really lovely. She went through all the plan with me and she seemed to have every single product in stock so win win. Had one and a half products so far today consisting of the mushroom soup (so-so) and half the malt toffee chewy bar which is OK. I think I just need to get used to the products. I’m on step 2 so along with 3 products a day I’ll also have a meal consisting of protein and green veg which will pacify my need to chew!

I will update with further information in the next few days but I’ll have a few days settling in and see how I am 🙂

Until next time.. x
