Week 1 weigh in

A good result of 6lb off. I first weighed last Sunday 28th December. I am overjoyed with this result, I know first week losses are mostly water and a shock to the body but I am still happy. I hope I can keep it up. I am happy with 1lb a week from now.

I managed to exercise today, just a quick walk but more than I have done for a while. Every little helps! Tomorrow I am to start using the wii fit regularly again as I wont be working as much. Work was the main source of exercise for me so now I will be less active there I need to be more active elsewhere.

I tried juicing for the first time today and it was a success. My lovely friend Anna made a lovely looking celery, carrot & apple juice so I thought I'd give it a go and it was lovely. It tasted so healthy and refreshing. I will be making the same for breakfast tomorrow. I am also making soup tomorrow, now I have all these gadgets (Hinari genie for smoothies/juicing and the soup maker) there is no stopping me now!

The fridge is full of good healthy food for the week ahead and my meals are planned, here's to another good week!

Fall down five times, get up six

Well I can't believe it has been August since I last posted here. I got a new job in August in retail and have been working so hard since in the build up to Christmas and over Christmas I just haven't had time to post. I did well leading up to Christmas but at the end of November I decided Slimming World didn't fit my new lifestyle and wasn't right.

I haven't really done any health eating in December with working 50 hours but being so active means weight gain has been minimal.

We all feel fed up giving up then restarting again in a few weeks/months but see the positive at least you haven't given up for good. Re-joining a group or just starting again from home means you haven't given up for good and still want to lose weight.

I have decided to take up the eat less, move more attitude and fingers crossed it helps. I have being doing well with meals in the New Year but struggled with snacking on a night, I am happy though as its a good start. Today I went out for lunch at Harvester and had almost 1200 calories in one meal but I missed breakfast and only had fruit and yoghurt for tea as I was still so full so I am happy with that.

The fridge is full of healthy foods, meals are planned and I am raring to go. I am down to 2 days a week at work now so plenty of time to cook good meals and exercise. I plan to walk around the 2.5 mile racecourse regular alongside daily wii fit. This year HAS to be my year!

I will try my best not to abandon here, writing really helps and will hopefully keep me focussed.
