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.

Yummo

I just had an amazing meal. I bought myself some chilli potatos to try out, they were baby potatos marinated in a chilli seasoning. they were so yummy. i’ll definitely buy them again.

I also had southern fried chicken. I love that. I dont buy it often because its not the healthiest but ya gotta treat yourself every now and then. I also allowed the littles to have some coke today. I got my home help to go to the local corner store to buy it, it cost 1 euro 80 cent for a small bottle! I was like thats so expensive normally a bottle of coke a regular sized bottle is 1 euro 50 cent.

I also got my home help to make me a fruit salad for later this evening when I get hungry. I put mandarin oranges, grapes, strawberries and kiwi in it. I love fruit salad. I have my weigh in tomorrow. I’m not sure if I’ll be down, I hope I will but I wont hold my breath. Its been 2 weeks though since we got weighed.

I’m watching some quiz shows on tv now and drinking tea. Feeling very chilled out. Emily has been having a tough time today, so I told her to email eileen. That made her happy.
