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!
