I thought I would touch base with where I am at these days.
I have been tracking weight loss weekly and recorded all losses apart from one very depressing gain (of only 800g but still I cried!
)What I have been doing:
I have committed to 3 visits to the pool each week. 2 x water aerobics plus one swim sessions of about 25 mins.
I just joined the gym and start official grown up weights (ugh) on Monday. I hope to do them before or after my swim session and add a session on the weekends. I am not thrilled, but I think it will help the extra weight to shift.Eating & tracking:
thanks to advice I am regulary tracking on calorieking and loving it now. I just had a girls weekend and I planned my whole weekend around the treats I wanted and then chose low fat lunches and dinners. I managed chocolate bsicuits and alcohol AND THEN RECORDED MY BIGGEST LOSS SO FAR of 1.1 kg!!
So planning REALLY works.
Now I am busily adding recipes into custom meals. My family was happy to have spag bol tonight and I was cruisy to know it fitted in with my plan AND I still had room left for chockie treat tonight!!Emotional Wellbeing:
My emotional eating issues are VERY low which is a relief and I think this stems from planning treats, exercise and generally my feeling that I achieving something!! Also since removing dairy from my diet, my emotional eating triggers have reduced greatly - not sure why?!?
Motivation is high! I have the support of my DH who totally believes that this is a new me with a whole ne attitude and no more excuses. My best friend is mostly happy to hear my results so thats good. Everyone else is jelous (they should be as "good" as me blah blah) or perhaps don't believe in me (I have started and stopped so so so many times in the past, so far enough...?)
I have also begun switching off TV, laptop etc at 9.30 and heading to bed via shower, wind down. Regular sleep time is helping.
So saying that, my time to go is now.
Until next time!
