Whilst I was here enjoying the gorgeous view from our hotel in Majorca my blog was hacked. Sorry for any of you who stumbled on the green dragon of doom who took over my gorgeous site.
Due to the hack I’ve lost my pretty theme so today we have had a little bit of a revamp, it’s not right but it will do for now and I am just happy the blog is back. Thanks to my amazing hosting company who back up my blog twice daily it was fixed within minutes of me alerting them so if anyone is looking to self host I would totally recommend Jamie and his team over at Fresh Sites
It’s good to be back!
I have to start this post with the fact I’m annoyed, annoyed that despite meal planning, exercising 5 days out of the 7, I only lost a measly pound! Yes I know a pound is a pound, better off than on etc but I really did try hard this week. Every meal has been home cooked and slimmingworld friendly, lunches have all been salads, there has been no chocolate!
I think this week I’m going to take my measurements as well, maybe even if the weight isn’t coming off as quickly there may be a slight chance I’m toning with the increase in exercise.
Nothing else for it though but to keep on going.
Well I have stuck to my exercise this week, tracking everything under the Mapmywalk App, which by the way allows you to also enter workouts not just walking.
I’m really pleased with what I managed and it’s a lot more than I usually do so great start. A few other lovely twitter ladies also signed up after last weeks post and we are now all supporting each other to be more motivated.
So exercise was good, eating not so much! My in laws where here for the week so we had a few meals out, quite a few glasses of wine and plenty of bread. I tried to be make healthier choices but I did sometimes struggle so this week was another 1 lb off.
I’m not going to say only as to be honest a pound is great seeing as I was out so much.
Anyway I am back to it, from Monday I have properly been following Slimming World plan again, I’ve been off work and cooking some lovely meals so hopefully next week I can report a better loss.
Still a loss is a loss and you can’t complain about that.
Another Wednesday and another weigh in. Though it’s not going so well. I managed to stay the same this week which is good as its not a gain but it should be better.
I eat when I’m stressed and I’m stressed and fed up with the goings on in my life so it’s not currently a good mix.
I really need to get my head in the right place this week!
Well this week has been better than last week at least and my 2lb gain has been taken off again
So now the focus is on dropping a few more each week and no more gaining!
I’ve totally ditched wine as it really wasn’t helping and I found I was drinking more in the sunny weather so no more for me. This week I have had a few vodkas with flavoured sparkling water instead which have been really refreshing so I’m trying to stick with that.
I’ve still not totally managed to curb the snacking though, it’s better but not quite there yet so that’s next on the list!
