Welcome to Weight Loss Wednesday Linky Week 34.
How are you all doing this week?
It has been a better week for me so far in the fact that I have managed to eat food. Wahey, success! Even managed a bottle of wine too, so things are on the lookup! Thank you all for your lovely messages last week!x
Exercise has been demoted recently due to Liv being home. Too much time has been spent sat down gossiping at play centres, children’s parties and just generally being lazy and enjoying a break. Now though, I have the guilt… the ultimate guilt… I have not been to the gym in over a week and I am absolutely craving it now. My body is becoming too used to slazing (my new word… a form of slobbing and lazing!) and I really do not like it, so I brought the bike out of temporary retirement last night and cracked on whilst watching Emmerdale.
Having not run for over a week, I know it will be tough to get back into it, despite having a sprint session during a torrential downpour at the weekend!
Water and coffee consumption has remained the same… an eyebrow was raised whilst asking a girl to put another spoonful of coffee in my drink… I like my coffee, like I like my men, strong and hot! I possibly do need to limit myself to 4 or 5 mugs a day at some point!
Now that I am eating again, I have finally started taking the XLS Medical Max Strength tablets that were kindly sent to me, around the same time I started on the New You Plan. Clinically proven, XLS Medical are the first slimming aid to help reduce calorie intake from the dreaded carbs, sugars and fats. You simply take two tablets, up to 30 minutes before the two largest meals of your day. As simple as that really and using XLS Medical meant that I did not feel as guilty when I had a Chinese meal at the weekend! I just need to remember to always make sure the handy pot is in my bag when I am out and about!
My weight loss is maintaining itself at the moment, which is fantastic, considering I expected the weight to pile on once I started eating again. I know I cannot rely on the tablets solely to help me and my eating habits do need to regulate and get back onto the healthy eating track again.
With one more week of the summer holidays to go, I know that as of next Tuesday, everything will be fine again and I can crack on as before… lord help anyone who is on my favourite treadmill next Tuesday!
Have you ever tried a slimming aid in order to help with weight loss?
