Well here I am again sharing how my week went and to be honest I did not really keep to those promises I made this time last week. Which is why standing on the scales I should not be surprised that although there has been a weight loss and I return to ___ 13 and a 1/4 I did not make as much of a difference as I could have.
I have exercised a whole heap over these past seven days as my Nordic walking classes are now running at three a week, I still do my Walking for Health group on a Monday morning and I go to yoga on a Friday plus this weekend I spent doing some serious DIY in the garden lumping heavy weights of wood and concrete so if I had got my food intake under control then the weight loss should have been amazing!!!
No-one else to blame except myself and the choices I am making and yesterday I received news that I will be taking part in a video for Sport England in three weeks time!! Yes me in a Sports video!!!!!
Do I want to look like this and weigh this much? NO!
Do I think if I tried hard I could lose half a stone in three weeks - that's 2-3 pounds a week? YES!
So how will I achieve success?
I have to plan my meals AHEAD - not just open the fridge door when I am hungry!
I will use a smaller dinner plate and thereby eat a smaller quantity. This has been suggested in the news this week as once again the debate rages about whether it is fat or carbohydrates which are causing British obesity problems.
I will go back to recording my pints of water - more water less feelings of hunger and much better hydration.
If you want a Weightloss Water Wristband to record your water simply click on the pic below to download - print out - cut out and sellotape around your wrist and then colour in as you down those glasses of water throughout the day!!
I will go back to my jogging regime - I have a 5k charity race booked in for the end of June.
I will do 20 mins each day of specific toning exercises for waist, upper arms and chest - measuring these areas and seeing if I can make reductions to them as successfully as I've been with my thighs and legs :)
I can do it, I WILL do it!!
