Welcome to Weight Loss Wednesday Week 18… here we go again, hey? Check out Weight Loss Wednesday Week 17 or fast forward to Weight Loss Wednesday Week 19 for a progress update!

In all, it has been a fairly positive week with regards to exercise, eating, weight loss and having a positive outlook on everything.

I managed a 3k run yesterday which I was pleased about, considering my kidney is still playing up. Dedication to the cause and all that! I know I need to pull 5k out of the bag at some point in the next 2 months, but I also need to get my butt outside (damn weather!) so that I can put the Suunto Ambit 3 to the test! I am beginning to think that my trainers are hampering me slightly, so have treated myself to some awesome Mizuno Hitogami running trainers in a half size up. I am hoping my toes will be comfier and therefore enable me to carry on running – anyone else suffer with numb toes?

So training preparations are going well and I am gearing myself up, Brioche Pasquier which are a huge hit in our house are going to be sponsoring me for Race For Life and sending some fuel for me – though as Liv is a chocolate bread monster, I am guessing unless I hide the brioche, it will all get eaten… not by me! 😉 There finally seems to be some movement with Scottish Power too, considering it is due to them that I signed up for the race…

Saturday was a real ‘I don’t care what goes in my mouth today…’ (well clearly there were some exceptions!) as I attended the annual BlogOnMOSI conference and wanted to enjoy the day as much as possible… it was a childfree day opportunity not to be missed! In actual fact… I was really good at the event, I had the equivalent of half a sandwich, 1 small glass of Prosecco, 4 black coffees, 2 Swizzle Matlow  lollies and a cupcake. It really could have been so much worse with all the calorific cake on offer! Everything was going so well until I got home and with a Hungry House voucher in hand, proceeded to buy a big, fat Texas BBQ pizza! Nom Nom! The takeaway guy even commented on how much weight I have lost… oh the irony as he handed me my pizza! 😉

Even attending an impromptu social event and having a takeaway, I’ve still managed to lose the 1lb that I gained last week. So, I am still currently stuck at a 1 and half stone loss so far…

So how are you this week? Any major losses to report?

well done on the sponsor, sounds like a really positive week for you 🙂 I really need new running trainers, so hard to know which ones to go for though. thanks for hosting x

S1m May 6, 2015 - 12:54 pm

Thank you chick! For sure – I really do need to get my gait checked, however I saw the Mizuno trainers for a reasonable price, in the size I was after and thought sod it, worth a try! Fingers crossed they help – they are very funky!x

we3threeblog May 6, 2015 - 12:31 pm

the thought of running brings me out in a cold sweat so good on you for doing it! excellent news about the pound loss too, it all adds up.

S1m May 6, 2015 - 12:53 pm

Awww thank you! Trust me, it is not as bad as you would expect! I am quite enjoying it to be honest, more of a hobby as opposed to a chore! 🙂 x

Sarah Howe (@RunJumpScrap) May 6, 2015 - 1:41 pm

Pretty good week all round. Weight loss, child-free day, yummy food and some exercise! Here’s to it continuing. Hope your kidney is ok!! x

S1m May 6, 2015 - 1:50 pm

Thanks chick – it was an awesome week, totally didn’t get my BlogOnMOSI ticket till the last minute but thoroughly enjoyed the day! Pretty sure my tablets are strong enough to bring down a horse so fingers crossed they do the job! 🙂 xx

Fernando Lachica May 6, 2015 - 2:23 pm

You enjoyed your run more than any fitness you’ve experienced. Very lovely week for you…nice program for you.

Danessa Foo May 6, 2015 - 3:21 pm

I really admire your perseverance and dedication to the program. Well done on losing even though you attended the impromptu event ‘)

Pooja KaWatra May 6, 2015 - 3:36 pm

You are doing pretty good dear with so much of efforts , I can understand the feeling when you have shedding the weight with harfwork and someone hand over the pizZa with lot of calories. Once in a while enjoy it !!

Mia Foo May 6, 2015 - 3:42 pm

wow, congrats on the sponsorship! wow, targetting 5k soon huh! my limit was 3.2k and it took me about half an hour to finish the run. my stamina sucks, i know. but i really dislike running too much to want to work on my running stamina…. 🙁
press on!

Mammasaurus May 6, 2015 - 4:45 pm

Nice one on the Brioche folks sponsorship – they sponsored me to do the Race for Life a couple of years ago and fed me yummy brioche after too -well, your body metabolism must be racing after 5k 😉

Sonya Cisco May 6, 2015 - 5:08 pm

Well done you! I have fallen so far off the diet wagon that I cant even remember where I parked it now….

Tiffany Yong May 6, 2015 - 5:49 pm

Do you know that you might reach a plateau where you can’t progress any further? That’s the body telling us to pause a while before going for more!

Nikki Thomas May 6, 2015 - 6:00 pm

Wow I love those trainers. I am still trying to decide whether to do the race for life but good luck with it I’m sure it wil be fun

Trish May 6, 2015 - 6:24 pm

Blimey, I come over here to read about running and keeping fit but leave drooling over Brioche Pasquier, Swizzle lollies and BBQ pizzas!

Cheryl @ Madhouse Family Reviews May 6, 2015 - 6:36 pm

Fantastic sponsors – you’ll be entitled to eat as much Brioche Pasquier as you like after the race ! Love the new running shoes too – great for the motivation, but you sound like you’ve got bucketloads to spare anyway. The pizza guy deserves a kiss for such a lovely comment too ! xx

Cass@FrugalFamily May 6, 2015 - 9:53 pm

Ooh they’re sponsoring us to do the race for life too – we’re going to be walking rather than running though I think x x

lee rosales May 7, 2015 - 2:03 am

Great job! 3k is still something. 🙂 i can only do 1-1.5km running even on threadmill, lol

Kylie May 7, 2015 - 4:29 am

Well done!~ fantastic sponsors to make your keeping fit mission successful!

Anne V May 7, 2015 - 5:03 am

Congratulations on making a 3k run! Routing for you! You’ll be able to pull off a 5k fore sure!

phyliciamarie May 7, 2015 - 9:42 am

Just keep pushing, and increase your goals! 3k now, 5 k tomorrow, and eventually 10k! Good luck!

Elizabeth O. May 7, 2015 - 10:20 am

Good job on the 3k run. I’m sure you’ll be able to pull the 5k run soon.

Emma May 7, 2015 - 10:42 am

Well done! I would find it a struggle running 500 metres at the moment! I used to do a college course with Jerry Hall of all people, and her mantra was to be super strict during the week, and then eat what the hell she liked at weekends! 😀

Sin Yee May 7, 2015 - 11:09 am

Read your post before going to gym is so motivating~ Haha.

Franc Ramon May 7, 2015 - 11:31 am

It’s nice that you still get to squeeze in the runs. When it comes to shoes, sometimes you get to know it better in time but it also helps to have your running gait checked for better shoe matching.

Ruth May 7, 2015 - 11:38 am

Ooh well done you! I bloody love those new trainers you’ve got. I’m due a new pair soon too, will have to check if I can get them over here. Glad you had fun at the blogging conference. 1 glass of Prosecco is very restrained!

Keep going, you’re doing a fabby job x

yuhjiun May 7, 2015 - 2:06 pm

omg your blog is so inspiring! I shall hit the gym soon 😛

Loudthinkin May 7, 2015 - 3:24 pm

While I was on my massive weight loss programme (in which I was successful) I remember days on which I used to completely binge and it was fine! So,I think that’s the mantra..if you are work out religiously 6 days a week, it’s k to binge on one day.

Nicol Wong (@yuk_lui) May 7, 2015 - 6:16 pm

i need to start running more, 5k is a bit of a challenge but i will reach 5k eventually haha i can’t wait for my blisters to heal so i can exercise again

Emma (@emvanstone) May 7, 2015 - 8:44 pm

Well done on the running! I need your motivation!

May De Jesus-Palacpac May 8, 2015 - 12:06 am

i’m also on a weight loss journey right now. we started with going for the real food one, although I can’t help having pizza from time to time. 😉

Sunshine Kelly May 8, 2015 - 4:23 am

Well done! I hope to follow you too. I am going to schedule my workout classes and list down what i eat. At least I can track my exercise routine and my diet.

Papaleng Pagulong May 8, 2015 - 6:34 am

So you’ve got a decent health week. Good thing you’ve got a sponsor on your next run. Go for the 5K dear. You can do it.

Manu Kalia May 8, 2015 - 7:06 am

Congrats on this! You are really improving I use running in my high intensity workout and it gain me a lot of result too.

Jason Panuelos May 8, 2015 - 9:16 am

Really awesome to read about a brand other than Nike and Adidas in terms of athletic gear. Can’t wait for the day you go for the 5k! 😀

Mummy Melton May 8, 2015 - 9:51 am

Good running shoes are so important, glad you’ve found a pair that suit you. A great brand too! How did I not see you at BlogonMOSI?? The food was good, I managed to stay away from the cake although it did look good! xx

3xhcch May 8, 2015 - 1:32 pm

Congratulations on the 3K! I am sure that 5K is within your reach of accomplishment. Congrats too on the new running shoes which will help you achieve your goal.

Raymond Vasquez May 10, 2015 - 2:58 am

I admire how you have monitored and really persevere on staying fit! Now this will again have to remind me that I also have to stay fit. I have been to several adventure trips recently and somehow made some workout, but it isn’t enough. I have to measure my progress too. 😀

Cebuana Mom May 11, 2015 - 12:50 am

Staying fit involves a lot of discipline, dedication, and commitment, Love the shoes though 🙂

S1m May 12, 2015 - 1:12 pm

Thanks lovely! Definitely getting there – the end is in sight for sure! 🙂

Mrs. AOK May 13, 2015 - 5:47 pm

Oh this weekend I probably gained about a zillion pounds. My family kept feeding my good. I’m hitting the gym hard this week. I even made sure to get a quick workout in this morning. Summer is coming a lot faster than my progress.
Cheers to a little “mommy” time!

hannah mums' days May 15, 2015 - 4:49 pm

After doing really well on a 6 week weight loss program I’ve since lapsed a bit! You’ve inspired me to get back on the wagon ready for the summer! #FitnessTuesday xx

thisdayilove May 15, 2015 - 10:43 pm

Lovely to see you at Blogon. 3Km is still more than those sat on the sofa! Thanks for joining Linked

Hannah May 17, 2015 - 8:20 am

You’ve done really well, don’t push it with your kidney though, you’ll get to your 5km! Thanks for linking with #BloggingToJogging xx

S1m May 18, 2015 - 12:52 pm

Thank you so much Hannah, all seems to be ok now. I gave myself last week off and both my side and my knee seem to be pain free after this morning’s trip to the gym. I will definitely keep pushing!
