Weight Loss Wednesday Linky – Week 14 #WeightLossWednesday

Weight Loss Wednesday Linky

Welcome to Weight Loss Wednesday Week 14, Easter is over and summer is now somewhat upon us. I hope you have all been outside enjoying the glorious weather we have had recently… bring on the tan! Check out Weight Loss Wednesday Week 13 or fast forward to Weight Loss Wednesday Week 15 for a progress update!

Before I can think about an amazing tan, I really do need to start knuckling down with my weight loss journey.

Due to the school holidays and Mini Me being off the last day of term, I have not seen the inside of my gym in a week. I am literally climbing the walls, having not been able to run or do weights. In all honesty though, I haven’t even been on the bike when I have been at home. I have been somewhat naughty in the exercise department and have particular guilt over it all. Next week there will be no rest days, that gym is going to see me most days, I cannot let my running slide now that I appear to be in the groove!

Despite doing diddly squat – no, it’s not another type of squat don’t worry – this past week, my eating has not been too bad, even over Easter. I did trough my way through a large plate of Beef and Veg on Easter Sunday but have not eaten one Easter Egg, I deserve a medal! I may have enjoyed a Peroni or 3 this last week too, the weather has been too lovely to not indulge ever so slightly.

Imagine my surprise this morning then when my scales informed me I had lost 2lbs this week – in total 1 stone and 6lbs – clearly something has worked for me this week. Mind over matter, I have not been snacking as much, I have only been eating my meals and cannot even say they have been calorific.

Today is my first day adapting to New Me (part of The Sun family) – a monthly diet and exercise planner, costing £10 per month. With set meal plans, that you can adapt, handy shopping lists and exercise plans suited to your fitness levels – experts are on hand to guide you through and make the most of the plan and help you make your weight loss journey successful. It will be interesting to see how I get on, considering I don’t like being told what to do, especially with regards to my exercise routine. Wish me luck and check back later in the week to see how I am doing! The meal suggestions are packed full of vegetables and fruit and look super yummy – I also like the suggestion of ordering an Indian takeaway too!

Has your weight loss journey or exercise routine been put on hold due to the school holidays? What changes have you made this week to cope with Easter?

I’m doing New Me too. Nursery doesn’t have Easter holidays, they just close for the bank holidays – and on those days we went for walks so I think I’ve done ok… The really telling will be when I weigh in next week though… fingers crossed!!

I noticed you were chick, how exciting!!! How are you finding it? The shopping lists are very handy but also very extensive. You are so lucky with the nursery. Beth is visiting tomorrow for a couple of days so am hoping she will enable me to go to the gym to escape for an hour and get back into running. Fingers crossed for your next weigh in chick!x

Proud to say I didn’t stop my workouts during the Easter holiday period.. 😉 Though I ate a bit more than the usual :/

Well done Hui, I am very jealous you were able to carry on with your workouts! I have a free week next week so hope to make up for lost time!

This motivates me to restart my weight loss journey. I lose weight recently only to gain it back again during my vacation. Yey for Weightloss Wednesday. The NewMe program sounds very interesting

Reply
S1m April 8, 2015 - 3:00 pm

I will be posting more information about New Me over the next few weeks so definitely keep posted! I hope the Weight Loss Wednesday posts can inspire you to get back on track – we are all allowed a little break off the regime when on holiday!

My exercise routine has been disrupted lately, ever since I became a stay-at-home-mum. Previously, with a domestic helper around, I can afford to go to the gym and walks before/after lunch. Now, I spend those times cleaning the house instead. I suppose I get my exercise while I vacuum and mop those floors! 😛

Reply
S1m April 8, 2015 - 2:59 pm

Cleaning the house is a great form of exercise, you will be burning calories even if you do not think you are! It’s hard when childcare is limited, I am wishing the school holidays away so we can get back to normal!

Fab news that you have lost some weight this week with no gym! Bet you are ready to go back…I’d be climbing the walls too. Keep going and will wait for next update xx

Reply
S1m April 8, 2015 - 2:57 pm

I was shocked, I don’t feel like I deserve a loss as I have not been doing enough – in my mind anyway. It’s most likely down to the fact I haven’t actually been eating a lot. The weather is too nice at the moment so we have been on long dog walks and spent time in the garden, but it isn’t the same as working up a sweat… bring on Saturday!!!x

Hanniz April 8, 2015 - 2:42 pm

My weekly house cleaning sessions are my only exercise at the moment! New Me sounds interesting.

Reply
S1m April 8, 2015 - 2:56 pm

House cleaning sessions help, I assure you – mowing the lawn is a fantastic form of exercise too! I need a few days on New Me but will be posting up at the weekend about how it all works!

Pooja KaWatra April 8, 2015 - 4:58 pm

For me at present taking care of kids, running behind them and doing household chores is the only form of exercise 🙂

You would be surprised how running after kids does keep you fit! Household chores too! 🙂

Thank you so much chick! I know… I didn’t snack as much last week, but even with a takeaway and a couple of beers something must have worked. School holidays so unfortunately not a lot of time for sitting down!

How interesting that the takeaway they suggested is Indian food! Why so? What sort of Indian food was suggested?

That plan sounds very good actually, you get to share diet plans with others, as well as follow ones noted by dieticians! Also, congrats on losing weight after Easter weekend!

You’re so lucky to lose weight even without gym time. I’m sure your gonna lose more next week when you go back to the gym.

Reply
Papaleng Pagulong April 10, 2015 - 12:48 pm

I’m surprised that you lost weight without exerting much efforts nor going to the gym. My guess, its because of what you have eaten.

When we get into an exercise routine, we trigger our fat and energy burning mechanism. Our body continues to burn calories even when we are at rest.

I always give myself a cheat day for holidays! But boy oh boy this easter candy is killing me lol!!! We didn’t get my son any candy but everyone else did and its so much!!!

Reply
S1m April 12, 2015 - 4:44 pm

Cheat days are definitely required – your body will definitely thank you for it in the long run!
I was mean this year with Easter eggs, far too much chocolate for my liking!

Losing weight is the hardest! I can totally relate to you. I’m not very consistent with my meal plans. Will give your method a try. 🙂

It is so easy to put weight on and ridiculously hard to lose it – but with perseverance it can be done! Good luck!

Mrs. AOK April 14, 2015 - 3:12 pm

Last week I slowed down. 🙁
I worked-out but not as hard as usual, due to not feeling that good.
I don’t know if I’m losing weight, but I’m finally starting to see “some” improvement. I’d love to see MORE, but some is good… I guess.
Congrats on your journey, you’re doing wonderfully!!!
XOXO

S1m April 15, 2015 - 3:00 pm

The scales don’t always pick up on the weight loss as your body will be toning up and also muscle will be forming. Improvement is fantastic in any form! 🙂 x

Reply
Amber Ludwig April 14, 2015 - 5:31 pm

I don’t actually workout per sey… I do lots of walking and relaxational yoga and thats enough for me!

Reply
S1m April 15, 2015 - 2:52 pm

Walking is one of the best forms of all round exercise, plus it’s nice just to get out and enjoy some fresh air!

Reply
Amy Squires April 18, 2015 - 7:07 pm

I’d love to join a gym but I honestly would have the time to go. My other half works quite late so I don’t have anyone to watch the little ones. I do transform my living and excise during nap time! Keep up the good work!

S1m April 20, 2015 - 12:59 pm

Finding the time is hard – I absolutely love my gym sessions now my daughter is at school – certainly kicks off the day with a good start. I have just treated myself to the Charlotte Crosby dvd in the hope that I can do it on my rest days to keep the momentum going!

Oh good on the new me program! Sounds fun! I look forward to hearing more about it each week. Thanks so much for linking up to #SlimmingworldSunday x

Well done on resisting the chocolate! I’ll be interested to see how you’ve been getting on with New Me, I’ve seen a few people mention in.Thanks for linking up with #BloggingToJogging xx

S1m April 20, 2015 - 12:49 pm

It’s definitely different and I have never been one for rules… or following them! It’s a great guideline and the fact you can record your daily food intake is very handy!x
