Feeling Proud!

I feel so proud of myself. I pushed myself to exercise. Part of me wanted to veg out on the couch and not do it. But I pushed myself, I did it. And now I feel great. The endorphins are rushing through me right now hahaha. It feels so good.

Weigh in!

today I had a weigh in. it was unplanned. my nutritionist was at work, but I wasnt supposed to have an apt with her. i was seeing my cpn and texted her to ask if she was free, i really wanted to have a weigh in to see if i had lost anything.

she texted back saying she was free for a couple minutes and said she’d come get me in about 20 minutes. that suited me as it gave me time to finish up with my cpn.

when we got to her office we chatted for a while first. i told her i was using my fitness pal. she seemed to think that would be a good thing and told me if it was helping me to keep going with using it.

we talked about goals for the week. i told her i hadnt exercised much this past week, not at all hardly. and i havent been drinking water either. she told me to try to start to do these things this week and to also use lecothin granuals.

then the dreaded moment arrived. she got out the scales. i stood on it.

101 kg, 223 pounds. oh no. same weight, again. no weight loss this week. this is the third week, how frustrating.

i was really disappointed with myself. She told me not to worry. that it could be due to constipation, or lack of exercise, or no water intake, etc. try harder for next week was all she said.

and i’d been sooo good this week!

I’d had no chocolate, no crisps, no biscuits, no sweet things at all. I’d eaten plenty of fruit and veg, I’d had 3 healthy meals a day and hardly any snacks. And still I wasnt down.

I guess allI can do is try again next week.

Have you ever been stuck at a certain weight for more than a week? What did you do about it?

15 minutes

thats how much exercise i managed today. not a lot in the grand scheme of things, but i am still proud of myself. i was feeling like i didnt want to exercise at all, but i pushed myself and i went on the treadmill. i put on my apple watch, set my workout ap to an indoor run and i did an intense 15 minute jog on the treadmill. my speed was about 5 and my distance was 1.4 KM not sure what that is in miles. when i finished i felt really good! hot, sweaty but so so good. i’m going to do the same thing again tomorrow morning. sometimes its hard to get motivated but once i did it was a great success.

Saturday and goals for the week!

Hi everyone
i’ve had a pretty lazy saturday. i didnt get up to much. i slept for a long time today. it was so good to be able to catch up on sleep. the weather was terrible so i never ended up going to my friend rose’s house. i had a bit of a headache also so i decided best to just stay indoors out of the wet weather, and do some self care, hence why i slept so much of today away.

spent this evening just chilling out and watching tv. x factor is back, i just love that show, its one of my favourites, because as you all know singing is a great passion of mine! i never thought of applying to be on the show though, lol. think i’d be too nervous.

i’ve decided to set myself some goals for the upcoming week, goals to do with my healthy lifestyle and weight loss. so here they are.

1 drink 2 litres of water a day, thats 4 500 ml bottles, more if I can!

2 Exercise 5 out of the 7 days this week. Do at least 10 thousand steps if I am able to.

3 Make a point to eat more vegetables.

4 Stay positive!

5 Eat mindfully!

6 Eat some fruit every day, this wont be too hard as I love fruit.

So those are my goals wish me luck completing them will give you an update on how things go at the end of the week!
