What a crazy, crazy, week and still, we are only on Wednesday!
This week has seen me physically exercise less, in the sense of going to the gym less, but I have been walking more… and I have been plumbing. I kid you not! There was a slight emergency on Monday evening which resulted in my ripping my bath panel off, nipping down to City Plumbing (who seemed very anti-women btw… arseholes!) and kitting my bath out with new pipes underneath. So far today, I have treated myself to a new wrench from B&Q to tighten everything up, but alas, I managed a shower this morning with no leakages. I am very proud of myself and a change of career is being considered! 😉
Exercise as you can tell has been in totally different formats this last week but something must be working… I treated myself to some new skinny jeans on Monday and they fit like a glove… they will be pulled out on Saturday!
I tell you though… you think the best cigarette ever is after food or sex… nope… after rolling around on the floor, getting dirty and swearing lots… the satisfaction that I had managed to re-plumb my bath made me crave a smoke. I didn’t cave, I am still cig free, but that was the first time I had actually thought about one. I’ve no idea where this determination has come from but you can bet your sweet ass I am riding that wave… I am actually being productive instead of procrastinating! For the next week, I will continue with the bike, which I do go on every day, up my walking and carry on going to the gym.
Food has been a tough one, I have been very good with calorie counting but caved on Sunday evening when we got back from Liv’s swimming lesson… it was much easier to order a pizza. Not really a huge pizza lover, I surprised myself with how much I ate. My body was seriously craving something very naughty and it totally hit the spot! I have been eating some rather scrummy and super healthy food recently including Heck, Goodlife and Cherry Tree Farm foods – you can view the review here. If you are on Slimming World or are calorie counting, check out the Heck Chicken Italia range – 3.5 syns for a whole pack of 10 chicken sausages!

I am almost there at my 1st stone loss and I am doing it by still eating the foods I like, I’ve simply cut down on the meal sizes, am watching my calorie intake and exercising more. It can be done if you put your mind to it!
How are you all doing with Week 6? Have you changed anything about your diet or exercise routine? Have you found a new food that fits in with your weight loss journey?
