so I had a disappointing week this week in slimming world.
I weighed in but was up 2 pounds. I dont know how I was up! I did everything right.
My consultant said it could be hormones. This is the week when I’d usually have gotten my periods, that is, if I was still getting them. I still get all the symptoms though each month.
I cant see what else it could be. I was so sure I was going to be down this week. I am so disappointed.
I’ve decided to cut out all bread. And I have also decided to only drink one cup of tea a day, and drink a ton more water, see if that helps. Hopefully it will.
I’m determined to have a better result next week. So we’ll see I guess. Heres hoping I will.
so I had a fab workout! I did well! I went on the treadmill for 25 mins, and the bike for 10 mins! I did 1 KM on the treadmill and 2 KM on the bike! I feel great! It has really lifted my mood to exercise!
I’m all set now for the rest of the day! When I came out of the gym I went and bought a sandwich for my lunch, I chose chicken and stuffing, on brown bread! So a healthy option for lunch! I already ate it once I got home! I was starving as all I’d eaten was some fruit this morning.
A funny thing happened. When I got my taxi to go home, I told the driver I was going to my own house. The driver knew me, he usually picks me up. He thought I’d said I wanted to go to my parents house though! So he brought me there instead of bringing me home! Luckily I noticed when we got out of the car. He was kind and said it was his mistake and brought me home and didn’t charge me anything extra for the extra journey!
I’m just relaxing now for a few hours before I am going out again to go volunteering. My supervisor called me, she’s picking me up at 2 PM. I am tanked up on coffee now so my energy levels are good! 🙂
well I had a really bad result on the scales tonight. I was up 1.5 pounds. I sware, if I continue like this I’m going to scream, the same damn 2 pounds gaining and then losing it for the past 3 or 4 weeks. Ug. Sigh. Its annoying and thats putting it mildly. Anyway. My consultant gave me some tips. Basically she said I’ve reached a plateau, and I basically cant go any further unless I do something to drastically change things, basically in a nutshell I have to now work twice as hard in order to lose the weight. As if I wasnt already working hard enough! She told me that maybe I should try eating more speed, that means a ton more vegetables. So I am going to start having stir frys. I am going to eat stir fry at least 3 or 4 times a week from here on out. I am also going to completely cut out bread. I am going to stop buying breaded chicken and breaded fish and other high fat foods. I wasnt eating a lot of them but I was still eating some. I will have slimming world meals on days where I feel tired or dont want to cook because at least I know the slimming world meals are free from fat. She basically told me to bulk up my plate as well with extra vegetables, so that I get extra speed in, and eat more fruit as that is speed food too. So with that in mind I am hoping I can start losing again. I wont be going next week but the week after I am hoping for at least a 5 pound weight loss. I know if I work super hard I can lose 5 pounds in 2 weeks. I’ll also be exercising so that will also help. I was very disappointed tonight but what can you do, it happens, I cant lose all the time I guess even if I want to.
So its that time of the week again, weigh in time.
Another week, another try at being down a few pounds, even a pound will do me or half a pound. Any little bit helps. I’d be happy at this point to go in and come out with just some sort of weight loss.
I’ve had a pretty good week all things considered. So I am very hopeful.
We’ll see though. Only time will tell. Wish me luck as I step on the scales tonight!
I had a great workout today! I really got in my exercise for the day! Mom and me walked down to the gym. My sister had offered us a ride, but we chose to walk. It only took us 10 minutes to walk there. It is all downhill. So we got there and I scanned my membership card and then we went into the gym. I went on the treadmill, I did 20 mins on it. I walked 1 kilometre. Then I went on the bike for 10 mins, I also did 1 kilometre on the bike. I felt so good afterwords! I was buzzed! I really enjoyed it!
After finishing up in the gym we went to the store to get my fruit for the week. I got lots of fruit. I got oranges, pears, bananas, kiwi’s, pineapple, strawberries and grapes. So I wont be short on fruit for the week lol!
Then we got the bus home after that. I was tired from all the exercise. I am not going to the gym now again until wednesday. But tomorrow morning I am going to go to the local park near moms to walk.
This morning, I have an assessment at the gym. The instructor is going to give me a programme to follow. I need to be shown how to do weights and use the weights machines, so he’ll show me how to do that.
Then I can get going and really get into exercising!
Mom already said she’d take me to the gym on saturday. Yay!
I’m excited to start. Of course I am even going to get some exercise in before I go to the gym at all, as I am walking there with my PA!
So yeah! Fit is good though, right?
I really wanted to go to the gym today. However I didnt go.
I needed mom to go with me. She wasnt free though. So it will have to wait for another day.
I feel bad about it since I really wanted to go. I feel bad for not exercising.
Oh well. Such is life. You sometimes want things and just cant do them or get to them. It will happen for me, eventually though.
