Weigh in Wednesday

Umm… so this happened:

Last week: 228 pounds
Today: 225 pounds

Umm how??
I mean…I know I was vommy-mcvomitus at the weekend but…kind of expected that to just jump straight back on board!? And I had mcdonalds yesterday. Does having no biscuits this week counteract that? Unsure.

Food:
As mentioned above, no biscuits this week so far. But McDonalds happened also. Soo…not awesome. I’ve been snacking less at work-this could be a stress related thing-but if it means I’m eating better then hey ho.

Exercise:
Due to being incapacitated at the weekend, I didnt run. I planned to run on Monday or Tuesday, but I worked late, missed my bus and had to get a different bus which involved walking for a mile with a really steep hill once I got off. So I think I can be forgiven for not running…
I signed up to my gyms Zumba class, I’m a bit unsure on it but we’ll see how it goes…
On an exercise related tangent, if you’ve been paying attention you may have noticed that Pip and I did not post about our forfeit for failing our BFF Challenge. Guess what, we didn’t do it. So this needs to happen at some point, though the next time I see Pip she will be running a half marathon – so perhaps not then either! This will happen, so I’ll let you know what’s what when I know.

Still cant beleive I lost 3 pounds from last week. Crazy talk! At the moment I am the lightest weight I’ve been this year. I think.

I’d love to lose another 2 pounds for next week and get under the 16 stone (224 pounds) mark, but I’m worried that this is a fluke and it will shoot back up again for next week…well, lets aim high (or rather, low)

Goals for next week
Weight: 223 pounds
Food: keep avoiding biscuits and bad snack foods
Exercise: keep up with running and start Zumba

Weigh In Wednesday

It’s Wednesday again, people! The first weds of September. Summer is officially over, and we are in the countdown to Christmas now.

Weigh in

Last week: 229 pounds
Today: 228 pounds
Goal for next week: 227 pounds

A loss of 1 pound, yaay. Any movement downwards is good, even if I didnt hit the goal I set last week.

Food
Last week-while I was off due to straining my neck-I didn’t eat very much atall. I was at home not doing much other than watching tv and doing some work from home, and I had no desire to snack. I ate at meal times, and that was about it. I actually under-ate for most of that week. Once my neck was feeling a bit better and I went back to work, it was snack central all over again. There’s something about being at work that makes me crave snacks all the time.
This week I haven’t been as good, but I am trying. Only bad things I’ve eaten are a couple of biscuits each day. I know I need to cut them out of my life but they’re so damn tasty…I need to teach myself some avoidance techniques. Or just have some will power…
Goal: No more biscuits this week

Exercise
Well this went out of the window when I hurt my neck. Very annoying! I’ve been wanting to go for a run, which is a bit odd as I don’t usually crave a run. I suppose it’s probably because I am unable to do it, therefore I want to.
The 30 day challenge is also on hold, I missed a few days, then hurt my neck and here we are 15 days later. I want to continue it, and plan to once I am able to without writhing in pain.
Goal: ease back into exercise-find things that don’t hurt neck.

Sleep
I need more. Last week I got a lot of sleep and I felt much better for it. I’m aiming to increase how long I sleep during the week as that is where I tend to lose out.
Goal: go to bed before 11pm

Happy Wednesday…

Weigh in Wednesday

Another Wednesday, another weigh in.

Last week: 230 pounds
This week: 230 pounds

No change…

Next week: 229 pounds

I want to break past the 230 mark!! Quite anoying as it doesnt seem to be happening. I’ll need to make sure I’m really careful with what I’m eating to make sure I go under 230. Exercise will also help for this, but you know what they say-80% of your body is down to diet.

Food: still need to learn to discipline myself at work when it comes to the office biscuits and popping to tesco at lunchtime. If I can avoid over indulging I’ll stand a much better chance at losing weight.

Exercise: desperately need to get back out there running. I’ve been finding it difficult the past week because I have a cold which-when over exerted-affects my chest. I’m going to try for a small run this week, see how it holds up, and go from there. Getting anxious about my lack of running with Pretty Muddy coming up.

Life: work is busy, I do feel as though it dominates my whole life. I spend 5 out of 7 days there, I spend 4 hours a day commuting, have no time during the week for anything else, and am spending half my paycheck on travel costs to get there. It kind of sucks. Outside of work, things are good, but I don’t feel balanced with work. Feeling like this may lead me to overeating as an escape from work. That sounds kind of stupid, but there we go.

Happy Wednesday!

Weigh in Wednesday

On an actual Wednesday! Huzzah!

Last week: 232
This week: 231

1 pound down. I think this is definitely due to water retention, as my eating is not good enough to warrant that loss. But it will be! I need to make a huge effort with what I eat. I always say this, but as soon as I’m faced with biscuits I give in and eat them. Damn my insatiable need for sweet things…

Food:
As I said above, I’m going to make a herculean effort to avoid my trigger foods. I’m doing well at home, there are chocolate bars in the fridge that I have not touched. Though it helps that I’m not there all day…
I need to befriend fruit and veg. I don’t eat enough of it!

Exercise:
It took a couple of days to recover from last week’s 5k, so I haven’t done much outside of my usual everyday walking. I need to go on at least 1 run this week, then pick it all back up again next week if I want to have any chance of improving my time in the next 5k.

Life:
Work is stressful, I dont sleep much and I feel like I’m always busy. I need to make sure I take some time to relax and let go of the days stress. Best time to do this would be before bed, which will help with getting to sleep.

Weigh in Wednesday

I put on again. Story of my life. I am not able to resist the biscuits from the kitchen at work. I also ate a lot over the weekend as I was away visiting family in sunny Cornwall.

Here are my stats.

Last week: 228 pounds
Today: 231pounds
Goal: 222 pounds by Ben Nevis (4 weeks)

To battle the biscuits I’m going to grab some fruit and keep that on my desk, to avoid wandering to the kitchen and back. I also need to actually find some self control for a change and choose to not be fat. Let’s be honest here, being the biggest person in the office is never going to be a good thing.

This week I am gyming twice, going on a hike at the weekend, and walking up the dreaded work stairs (Instead of taking the lift).

Weigh day, hoo ha ha.

As of this morning, I weighed in at 221 pounds.

3 pounds to get to my first weight reward goal. I’m skeptical about hitting it by graduation, but there we go. I’ll get there soon regardless.

Next month I can gym and get there quickerrrr. Hopefullyyyyy. If I don’t go I will kick myself in the butt and get myself up there. no excuses! It’s only up the road!!

My eating habits still aren’t great, I’m a total sucker for anything sweet and pastry-like. And biscuits. And crackers. And so the list goes on. I have cut down on the foods that are on my rewards list though! Which is always a good thing.

It’s been a weird week, I dropped 4 pounds, then bumped up two, then down one again. Strangeeee. Bloatyness I think!

Haven’t kept up with running, it’s a bit too dark and wet out by the time I get home from work at 8PM. EVERYDAY. Excluding weekends.

Bored of being muchikus fatikus.

Weigh in

Still hovering around that 215 mark. But, have lost a pound since last week. I want to lose more this week to try to kick-start a downward curve. That would make me very happy.

I don’t really have much food in the house, but I need to start making a packed lunch to take out with me for when I’m running around super busy. I’m thinking wraps-started making those a little while ago, yummy. That can go on my shopping list for after work today!

I need to try harder with this. I’m too much of a pushover when faced with yummy food…
