Weight Loss Wednesday Linky Is Back Again!

How awesome is it to have Beth back in the fold and for Weight Loss Wednesday to be resurrected once more!

I shall literally be joining in when I can and when I require the extra push of motivation to get on through.

In my 2016 Challenge post, I mentioned that I would still like to lose more weight, on top of the 4 stone loss from last year. I have now extended that to another 2 stone loss (in my mind) and is something I am today working towards. I haven’t really taken dieting too seriously so far this year, it appears to come naturally now that I know when I have had enough food and that is it. So my mindset has definitely changed with the weight loss! Yesterday was my birthday, so any thoughts of dieting were ignored and I simply enjoyed the day… and a lovely lunch out!

Black Pudding is now classed as a super food… so therefore my lunch was healthy – that’s my excuse and I am sticking to it!

Weight Loss Wednesday

I had kick started the day with a long overdue trip to the gym – having given my shoulder time to heal – and managed to shave a whole minute off my 2k PB. After not running in over a week, that was some going! I am utilising the Jeff Galloway running method of walk/run – however when Sympathy For The Devil came on my playlist, simply threw my towel over the control panel and ran… ran for the track and did not care about alternating with walking. It seems to have done the trick, with a 12kph sprint to finish. Super proud… and treated myself with Super food! 😉

I also have my eye on some rather awesome new women’s running trainers – that I really cannot say anything about as they do not launch until later today *sigh*… the only thing I can say is that they are purple!

Though now I need to focus, I’ve had my fun and need to start getting serious about shifting the scales even further down. I am restarting on the New You Plan again and have stocked up on the rather delicious Banana Shakes to get me through. I do not wish to get stuck in a complacent rut of simply relying on the shakes for moments when I think I need them so will go right through now to target weight.

So yes, expect me to be taking part with WLW and helping see Beth through her journey too.

    Wow that lunch looks delicious and I did not know that black pudding was now classed as a super food! I hope you don’t mind me linking up my weight loss post as it also has a linky on the bottom. If there is any problem just let me know xx

      Hi Kirsty – of course you can join in! Between Beth and I, we will be keeping Weight Loss Wednesday running again through 2016! Thank you so much for linking up!
      It is indeed a super food and I am super glad! 😉 I prefer the proper horse shoe puds to the crappy discs you get though – if you are going to do it… do it properly! Off to catch up on your journey and wishing you well for this year love – you can do it!x
