Welcome to Weight Loss Wednesday Week Linky 29… where is this time going exactly?
There have been quite a few revelations this week… namely, the fact I have been eating and drinking and still only gained 2lbs. Either my scales are just being incredibly kind to me or my fitness plan this year and being on the New You Plan really has retrained my eating habits.
Totally discounting the Chicken Cottage from last night when a friend popped over… my scales clearly have not updated! However, today I am back on plan to shake off the remaining stone. (Thanks go to Barry from the New You Plan for the lovely email this morning – just what I needed to get back on track!x)
School holidays have dictated that gym visits are nonexistent, which is bizarre as I never knew I would pine for the gym as much as I am doing. Proving that it is my time and space away from the world whilst I am there!
Any followers of Weight Loss Wednesday will recall that I was a great fan of my FitBit Flex, totally addictive and spurred me on to up the ante. Well, that was until a couple of weeks ago when my 2nd FitBit Flex broke within 3 months of the 1st breaking. I used it every day, didn’t wear it in the shower or bath, so kept it away from water and wasn’t exactly ‘rough’ with it… not as if I am a cliff hanger or anything! 😉
Firstly the strap broke and then the tracker would just not reset, no lights… no life!! Exactly what happened with the first tracker. My arm feels totally naked, it was extra bling and a talking point with people… did I ever tell you that one of the mum’s at school said that I was an inspiration?! Me! I was on cloud nine… you do not realise that by helping yourself, sometimes you are actually helping others too! Needless to say, the mum in question did go on to purchase an activity tracker, not a FitBit though… so I assume hers will actually last longer!
I am going to be working with the rather lovely Activ8rlives shortly, which I am rather excited about, but in the meantime, will be checking out their new Activ8rlives’ 3.0 Health and Wellness Monitor and Food Diary App. Getting back on track with the diet today, I need something that will keep track of my intake and keep me on the right track when I am properly eating again.
Bring on the summer!
