I am a bit worried about going to slimming world this week. I weighed myself and it says I havent lost anything. I know all scales arent the same though. I know I probably shouldnt weigh myself at home. I should probably only do it at slimming world. I cant resist though. I just do it to make sure I am on the right track. I did have a couple of days this week of bad eating, or where I wasnt too mindful of what I was doing or putting in my mouth. I hate going and then not losing. It makes me feel so bad. I want to lose, even if I only lose 1 pound, or a half a pound. That will do. So if I go this week and I am down anything, I’ll be thrilled, I’m not expecting a big loss this week, if anything I will expect a tiny loss. I’ll be happy if I have any loss at all. I need to try to get more exercise in. I havent been too good about that either this week. I have until wednesday, as I dont go until wednesday evening. So tomorrow and wednesday I will be more mindful of what I am doing. I will eat healthier and drink lots of water. And hope for the best when I do go to slimming world on wednesday night
Its time to Charge up my apple watch! Tomorrow I start my exercise regime! I am going to aim to get 10 thousand steps in! I hope I can! I have some workouts that I can use on my phone, I got them from a friend, they are walk a mile in 20 minutes, I think I can do it!
Then on Friday I go to the gym! I am aiming to do 40 minutes on the treadmill! And 15 or 20 on the bike!
Its time to hit the ground, running!
If I charge up my watch, it will keep track of the exercise I do. That way I can log my activity which I really want to do!
If I do this and do it right, I can also get my body magic award in slimming world, for the bronze award, you need to do 3 15 minute sessions in a week, for four weeks.
I am also hoping to go to the gym on Saturday!
Off to be weighed now. Another week gone by. Where did the time go!
I am thinking I wont be down any weight this week. I wasnt at my best. I didnt do all the right things. I did some, just not all. I ate some things I shouldnt have eaten. So if I do lose anything, I’ll be very surprised. But you never know, I might just surprise myself.
So fingers crossed guys! wish me luck!
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!
