Weight loss since start: 9.5lb
Lbs to go to reach next target: 0lb
What’s gone well?
I’m delighted to have finally reached (and actually exceeded) my “5% since January” goal and can now pick a treat off my list (more about this tomorrow). My next small goal is my “10% since January” goal. I need to lose another 8.5lb to reach this target and would like to do so by 2nd June. However, that’s still a long way off so my next mini-goal is to lose 4lb by 28th April.
I was on the ball with tracking my weekly points this week which I think really helped with my weight loss.
I was really pleased with my exercise because, although I was unable to attend two of my usual classes, I went to my spinning class and actually stayed for a couple of extra tracks and I went back to parkrun and kept going even though my hip-flexor was niggling a little bit and the devil on my shoulder was more than ready to use this as an excuse to throw in the towel.
I think it’s been helpful to not be as focused on food: I’ve been cooking less recipes due to being extremely busy with work and trying to get a new business off the ground. Instead I’ve been relying on simple foods such as jacket potatoes and beans on toast. It’s actually been really liberating to realise that I can still lose weight despite not having time to devote to trying out new recipes all the time.
What’s been difficult?
It has been a little bit difficult to fit in all of my planned exercise due to other commitments this week. However, I’m already not letting this throw me off course by making sure that I go to the classes I can get to and work a bit harder while I’m there.
The week ahead
I’m going out for a friend’s birthday on Saturday to Chiquitos. I’ve been wanting to try this place for a long time as I really like Mexican food. However I do know that the meals are quite high in PPVs. But I’m simply going to plan ahead, save my weeklies to help cover it and limit myself on the cocktail front.
Thanks for reading.
PS Look out for my post on rewards that I’m finally going to get round to posting tomorrow!
