WootWoot! I lost 1.5lb!

REALLY pleased!
I stuck to usual diet thru day at work Mon-Fri and dinners were healthy proteins with veggies, 2 meals, Tues+Wed were carb free, but no regulation of protein or fat amounts, Thurs+Fri included fairly large baked potatoes with copious amounts of butter!
But I walked 2.5-ish miles each pm, not particularly fast, listening to TheSmarterScience of Slim podcasts, they are AWESOME!
It was nice and bright and motivating each evening, nice.

This w/e was fun, we went to the O2 arena Sun for the Country2Country concert with Leanne Rimes, Darius Rucker & Carrie Underwood! Was awesome! We went for an amazing steak meal beforehand at Gaucho, freakin delicious!
Inside the arena, we then weren’t hungry but it was tempting to want to eat for the sake of eating at the event. But I honestly was repulsed at the thought of the deep fried shite on offer! YaY me! 🙂
So we didn’t have anything, left early as Carrie’s sound set up was terrible, and we were tired, and got healthy M&S meals at the station! Go us!
Oh we did have an ice cream each, and wine with dinner and shared pudding! BUT, small steps/successes eh.
Ooo let’s end on a real positive note, I set my alarm 5mins early each am, and I got up! Not walking yet, just pottering with a cuppa, but soOo chuffed I’ve managed to start at last, 6.40am by Fri!
Over slept this am, but back to start at 6.40am tom, only need to get to 6.30 really, so looking good.
Very wet walk this pm, back to gym tom! EEeeKKkk!

Have an awesome week y’all!

OhMyGosh!
I sooOoo wanted pizza tonight! 😦
I didn’t plan to, I took a couple of portions of spag bol mix outov the freezer this am, planned to have with my low carb noodles and cheese.
I planned not to regulate the mince portion and cheese in exchange for not having pizza.
But on my walk tonight, I convinced myself into having and talked myself outov having pizza, I lost count of how many times!?
…I mayaswell cos there’s only 3 weeks of this 1st segment left and I’ve wasted 8weeks, so what’s another 3?!
…But WTF, get your arse in gear and finish strong, do something special in these last 3 weeks!
It’s only Tues FFS!
Then back home I thought about my last post, about Heather, and whether having pizza would make me proud…course it wouldn’t!
And I really enjoyed my low carb noodle spag bol!
And cos I’m not sickly stuffed or got indigestion, I can do the chores I planned also!
YaY!

Week 8

Palace

So the ‘BIG’ event was that my father-in-law received an Honour from The Queen! An MBE for services to St John (Ambulance).

On the day itself it was Princess Royal (Anne) presenting.

It was an amazing experience, to be at Buckingham Palace and part of an official ceremony with a member of the Royal family! Very surreal! But VERY awesome!

Combined with zero exercise.. no surprise..+2lb 😦

But I have enjoyed every minute of this week!

On a drive on Sat, Heather Small’s Proud came on the stereo, I got very emotional. I don’t feel that I’m doing an aweful lot to make myself proud at the moment 😦

I think I really need to get exercising of an am again. If not from a calorie fat burning point of view, then certainly from a psycological point of view. It would mean that very early on in the day I will have acheived something, something to be proud of, and help motivate my actions for the rest of the day.

‘Proud’ is my new alarm ring tone to help motivate me outov bed! 🙂

So this week, no rash silly plans I won’t stick to, just improve the diet and get back walking.

Have a great week everyone!

Week 7

No Loss…but no gain.

Diet this week:

Wake: 1/2L Water

PreBreakii: Mug of hot/warm water with Tsp honey+1/2Tsp cinamon
Breakki: 1 whole egg made up to 200ml with egg whites scrambled+7 slices BernardMatthewsWaterThinHam+1/2TbleSpUdo’s+Dash French’s Mustard + Tea (+ MultiVits)
1/2L Water
Meal 2: 100g 0% Greek yogurt+1/2scoopCherryBakewellPPer+75g blueberries+20g flaked almonds

1/2L Water
Lunch: Mon-Fri; 150gChkn+1TbleEVOO+Balsamic+Spinach+Broccoli
1/2L Water
Meal 4: 75g prawns+1/2Avocado+salad leaves+balsamic+1/2TblspAvocadoOil

3 mile walk
Immediate Post WO: 25g-ish ProteinShake

Meal 6: 150g LeanMince/Chkn/Salmon+GreenVeg+Large BakedPotato+butter

 

On the one hand, quite disappointed with no loss this week, despite a 3 mile walk each pm.

But on the other hand, really quite pleased at the amount of calories I’ve eaten and not gained!

 

Again, I am NOT going to panic, again I am not going to change anything!

We have a rather big exciting event this week, more in next weeks blog, and that is going to interrupt any flow, so I’m not gonna beat myself up and say I’ll do stuff I know I’ll not, I’m going to achieve my goal of not changing anything! As just doing that and not derailing will be an achievement.

Whilst there have been a lot of extra’s in diet this week, despite half hearted cardio and no weights I’ve not gained weight. That tells me I’m on the right track and that after this next week, sticking with previous comments on keeping cals high and up cardio, before dropping cals. That only a few tweaks and the re-introduction of the weights should see me back on track with great results.

The whole training myself to wake up earlier still needs work, but getting a teeney bit better.

 

Have a great week

Love Fi
