This is just a last update before we go to scotland in a couple of days; I doubt I’ll be able to check in. I haven’t blogged much lately but I am continuing to watch what I eat and I’m exercising. I’m not sure whether it’s getting too hard or I’m losing interest but I continue to want to make up excuses not to do my yayog. I am doing most of them though but it’s a real struggle to get myself motivated.
Last week I weighed myself and I’d gone up. On 9th June I was 181lbs but on the 16th I was 182.2 (the salter scales were 184.75!). I dont know why and I was a bit disappointed but I bought a pair of size 14 jeans as a motivator. I tried them on to see how far I had to go to wear them and I pulled them all the way and did them up without a problem! Woot! Down another jeans size. My measurements (if I’ve done them right) show almost an inch loss off my hips so that increase in weight is nothing to worry about. It didnt help that it was my TOM again. It’s only been a fortnight since my last one.
I also went to a family bbq this week and had lots of compliments about my weight loss but more importatly, my increase in health
I’m still a bit obsessed with looking at food and exercise on the internet but I want to get a plan and stick with it. I’d love to meal prep or at least plan so I know what I’m eating each day. I find it frustrating thinking of what to eat every day and often go without lately as there’s nothing quick to eat. I need to plan for the family too. I’ve been through our freezers and noted all the food. Theres loads! I’d like to go through the cupboards and do the same then I’ll plan around what we have. It would be lovely just to have a plan…
It’s been an odd week anyway. I spent a couple of days replacing the hdd in my laptop, oh has had a couple of days off work and early finished and DSL has been here a lot as his GF has changed jobs. It’s been lovely but it’s thrown my routine for exercise and food. Not that I need much of a reason… Another good side to my healthy living (note; not diet!) is that it’s encouraged DSL to review his habits and he’s joined MFP and started logging and exercising more. I’m happy that he’s took the initiative himself to get healthier!
Anyway, I weighed myself this morning, 20 June, (as I do every day) and I was down to 179.4. A little later I went to the loo and weighed myself again after and the scales showed 178.8! Whatever they are, I have hit my June goal (again…) and anything from here is a bonus though I’m a little worried that a week in a caravan will reverse that. If it does I’ll be disappointed but, I will just carry on when I get back. For now I’m feeling thinner and I’m getting happier with my reflection too. Well, with clothes on. I am feeling firmness on my limbs as my muscle improves and overall am happy with the way things are going.
