Welcome to Weight Loss Wednesday Week 26!
We are officially half way through the year, whoop!
This week is ‘too hot, hot damn’ meaning lots of water is being consumed and the need for a pint, sat in a beer garden is very great!
Which is exactly what I did on Saturday when we spent a lovely afternoon at our local village summer gala. The New You Plan was on hold for the day as I knew we would be out in the sunshine all day long and really wanted to enjoy the day…
The same happened yesterday too as it was sports day at school… we were due to be sat in a field for nigh on 3 hours in 26 degrees heat. Arrrrrrgh! Yeah, no I did blip yesterday but because I had mentally prepared myself to eat, I felt less guilty.
I tentatively stood on the scales this morning and had put on 3lbs – it’s all good, I am putting that down to water retention and know that as I am back on the diet today, the scales will move in the right direction again tomorrow.
I love the New You Plan so much, I have even treated myself to another 3 week bundle. I am too close to my target now and noticing the difference is really spurring me on. I even braved a maxi dress at sports day yesterday – the confidence boost is amazing! I am rather excited about trying the Cottage Pie, a meal I have not tried yet, so am already looking into recipes I can make! Clearly my progress is evident from last week’s Weight Loss Wednesday post, if you are curious about the diet, check out the New You Plan site for more information!
Workouts are still going strong and running in an air conditioned gym is rather satisfying at the moment. My fingers are crossed for nice but mild weather next Sunday when I finally take part in the Manchester Race For Life. I need to get on it even more this week and train harder than ever before… I have already organised for a bottle of Peroni to be waiting for me when I cross the finish line! 🙂
Just over a week to go… I can do this!
