Progress is slow at the moment but I’m still feeling good as any progress is progress, right?
I’ve got nothing too interesting to report this week but seeing as I never got time to write up last week’s success I thought I’d do a bit of a two in one post!
You might remember that week 5 was the week I was on holiday in New York eating my way through all the delights that New York has to offer whilst walking a million miles every day. I put on 2lb that week which was a mini-miracle in itself so I started week six feeling super determined to get rid of that 2lb straight away.
I was absolutely over the moon to step on the scales last weekend and see that I’d not only lost the 2lb I’d put on in New York but that I’d also lost an extra 1lb too. A 3lb loss was just what I needed to keep me going around the time when I’d often lost motivation in the past.
I started this last week feeling super organised and ready to have a good week but my willpower wasn’t really along for the journey this week. Partly because I’ve been feeling a bit bleugh (slight concussion after being hit with a falling painting – don’t ask) and partly because I’ve been ridiculously busy at work and haven’t really taken time to have a proper lunch so by the time I leave work, I’ve been really hungry which has led to a few less than brilliant food decisions. I don’t know about you, but if I get to a certain point of being hungry then I can’t seem to satisfy that hunger so I feel hungry all night.
I also struggled to resist the Nutella pancakes on Pancake Day so I compromised and had one and a half instead of the usual pile that we’d all eat to make the most of the fact that I only ever make pancakes once a year these days!
It wasn’t all bad though- when I wasn’t making questionable food decisions, I was making good food decisions. In the past, I’d use a bad day or even a bad choice on a good day to tell myself to take a day off and start again the next day or even the next Monday! But this week, I’ve eaten something I possibly shouldn’t have done and then made adjustments to the rest of my day to try and minimise any impact on my weight Soss.
All things considered, I’d probably class this an OK week – not a fantastic one but also not a bad one either. I genuinely had no idea what to expect when I stepped on the scales this morning…
A loss of 1.5lbs feels brilliant today to me! It might not seem like a huge amount and don’t get me wrong, I’d love a 3lb loss every week, but a loss is a loss just like any progress is progress.
To see my progress so far:
I skipped from Week 3 to Week 4 – I didn’t get weighed as I was away on holiday
Week 6 was super good week as I lost the weight I’d put on in week 5 but I just didn’t get around to writing it up.
