So here I am on the 26th June 2016 and having hit yet another brick wall when it comes to weight loss, yes last weekend was a bit rubbish having friends over which included a Chinese on Friday night, Chip shop at the beach and Harvester for dinner Saturday, Cooked breakfast and Ice cream at a different beach on the Sunday. Having friends come and visit is awesome. just not for my diet so much!
I made an awesome purchase the other week on a recommendation from my sister. The WW journals are good but they take a bit much to fill in… they are quite thick and heavy but she found something better, a diary by Fox and Moon. They do diet friendly diary’s, Suitable for WeightWatchers and Slimming World too.
This is mine…
I got it on Sale, It made me giggle.
It makes meal planning easier with a space for a shopping list also. I’ve since found other people that do similar diary’s so a quick google search could point you in the right direction…
Yesterday I did this;
I’ve planned my meals and points for everyday and then went shopping and got everything I was missing. Today I am having a Chicken and Veg soup and French Stick for dinner at a wonderful total of 11 points 🙂 (winning) Lunch didn’t go to plan today though, we got stuck in the Swansea city centre because of the diversions in place for the Swansea Half Marathon. So ended up having to eat in town which gave me a 25point lunch instead of 17. BUT I did leave myself 18 extra points to use today before having to go into weeklies.
Exercise wise I have been doing well. I’ve been at the gym and my steps have been pretty good too. I’m thinking about upping my step goal to 11,000 instead of 10,000 and then maybe every month or 2 up it by another 500 as I am averaging 11,500 at the moment.
Working 6 days last week has really messed up my mood. unfortunately I’m doing it again this week and I’m unsure I’ll be able to cope. Today is my day off. I kinda promised myself I would go to the gym but it is now 16:30, the gym shuts in 3 hours and I’m watching The Blacklist with no intention of moving. but I honestly think I need a day to rest, a day of nothing. Sounds stupid I know but I honestly just want to sleep all day, So I imagine even if I did make it to the gym today I would easily give up and not do much. I think it is a matter of balance, for my 1 day off in the middle of 13 days of work I think I just need to do nothing. I kind of regroup day? does that make sense? have I just waffled on about nothing for the last 5 minutes and just making up excuses?
I’m approaching my first big goal day, it’s 3 weeks away, I was hoping to be 60lbs down but I’m not even half way towards that. Yes it’s getting me down. I just want to be able to focus, get the weight off and be happy… it’s just going to take time. things go up and down all the time. I just need to break down this wall and move forward.
As the wise prophet Dory would say…
“Just Keep Swimming…”
