The Third and Fourth Weigh-in
So let me apologise, I have been absolutely useless at keeping this blog updated recently, I have been so busy with the gym, work and other commitments that I have had no spare time at all! I promise my posts will be less sporadic from now on!
So I might as well be honest, last week didn’t go so well, I had TWO cheat days (oops!!) instead of just the one. As planned, Jimbob and I went out for a lovely meal on the Wednesday at our new fave restaurant “The Gate” and as it was a cheat day I decided that I was going to eat exactly what I wanted, but just not have a dessert, so I had some tasty stuffed mushrooms for my starter and an AMAZING paella for my main. Not the healthiest of meals, but not too bad overall I don’t think!
On the Friday I went to my colleagues leaving party, straight after work. I was full of good ideas and intentions all day, stating how I was going to drink vodka and slim line tonic because of the low calories, saying how I would avoid junk food at all costs, and that I would be at home in bed by midnight. Well…… it soon became quite clear that I had no intention of sticking to this.
Instead the night consisted of multiple glasses of Rose wine, Vodka Redbulls, and yummy cocktails (which were actually served in a pineapple shell –surely that must make it a TINY bit healthy!!), and a bowl of chips and a double cheeseburger. NOT GOOD AT ALL!!!!
So, as if my diet that week was not bad enough, I also only managed to make it to the gym twice that week due to other commitments, which worried me as I had been no less than 5 times every other week. Understandably I was extremely worried when it came to my weigh in at the end of that week; it was safe to say that due to my food failures and lack of exercise, I wasn’t expecting good results at all!
Therefore, when I stepped on the scales to discover that I had actually LOST 1lb, I was completely gob smacked, which doesn’t happen very often at all!
This took my total weight loss so far to 7lbs, meaning I had officially lost half a stone in three weeks! This took my weight down to 10st 11lbs!!!
Even though I was elated to find that after all of my cheating that week that I had still had a weight loss, and not a gain, I knew that if I had actually been to the gym more and ate healthily I could have shifted a few more pounds, so I knew that I had to really go for it this week!
This week I have got back into my exercise regime full throttle, and also snapped back into healthy eating mode avoiding ALL junk food (including more samosas at work – damn things!!!) at all costs. I was determined to lose more than a pound this week! This has completely paid off, as I found out at my fourth weigh-in yesterday morning.
I have lost another 3lbs!!!!!!
Total weight loss so far is 10lbs!!!
Current weight 10st 8lb.
I am completely over the moon with the 3lbs weight loss, as I feel as though I am back on track! This also means that I only have to lose another 4lbs (ONLY!!!) to lose 1 stone! The next few weeks are going to be tough but I am completely determined to shift those measly 4lbs!!
BRING IT ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
