Weigh in Wednesday

Good morning! It’s that time again…the after-Easter weigh in. And yes, I have been eating chocolate.

Last Week: 225 Pounds
Today: 227 Pounds
To lose for goal 2: 28 Pounds

I’m not surprised at gaining with all the chocolate and big meals I’ve been eating. I’m hoping that once I’m back to a healthy eating plan that will easily come off again. I want to plan out my food again as that was really helpful when I was doing it before, but I;m not sure when exactly I’m going to have time to do that! I’ll try to do it tonight but we shall see…

Biscuit Ban
The biscuit ban is over! I surprised myself with this, I did much better than I thought. I did break the ban a little early last week, but I don’t feel bad about it. I’m going to do biscuit ban for a further 2 weeks starting from today.

I’m finding it quite difficult to motivate myself to exercise at the moment. This is probably heavily related to feeling tired all the time, so I’m trying to get some more sleep at the moment. it’s not been working very well so far!

Goals for Next Week
Weight: 224 Pounds
Exercise: Go out on 2 runs

Weigh in Wednesday

Happy Wednesday… The last Wednesday of January!  I don’t know about you, but I feel like this month has flown by. It’s been crazy, a world of busyness and tonsillitis. I haven’t been very active atall this week, and I think the scales will reflect that. However, I am moving out this weekend, so I think running regularly will be a good way to explore the local area I’m moving to.

Last Week: 223.5 pounds
Today: 225 pounds
To Lose for Goal 1: 15.5 pounds

Told you. 1.5 pound gain – that is also down to bad food choices this week. Not the end of the world, it will come off again for next week!

Weigh in Wednesday

Morning…

I haven’t been very well for the past few days, so I’ve been reeeaally inactive. Not particularly fun…

Last Week: 227 pounds

Today: 221 pounds

To Lose for Goal 1: 11.5 pounds

Well that’s a dramatic difference in a week. I’m almost back down to my pre-christmas weight! My eating has been generally better which I think has been what’s helped this along. Added to me being ill might also have an effect…we’ll have to see once I’m recovered…

Food

Last Weeks Goal: Eat 1500 calories 6/7 days

I Did: 4/7 days

Well, not too bad. Could have been better of course, but there we go!

Exercise

Last Weeks Goal: Burn 3500 calories

I Did: 362/3500 calories

I went for a run on Thursday, it was a short one but other than that I haven’t done any extra exercise because of being sick. Joy of joys…better next week…

Sleep

Last Weeks Goal: Get 8 hours sleep 4/7 nights

I Did: 6/7 nights

HOLY MOLY I actually got decent sleep this week. Granted, some if it was because I’ve been ill and it was very restless sleep, but still. It was sleep in a good quantity. What I’m wondering now is…does this have a direct correlation to the weight I lost this week? I mean, with food I wasn’t exactly perfect so…probably?

Goals for Next Week

Weight: 219 pounds

Food: Eat 1500 Calories 6/7 days

Exercise: Burn 1000 Calories

Sleep: Get 8 hours sleep 4/7 nights

Weigh in Wednesday

First Weigh in Wednesday in 2015!

Last Week: 227 pounds
Today: 227 pounds
To lose for goal 1: 17.5 pounds

Maintaining is better than gaining! Though during the week I went up and dropped back down again, so…technically I lost weight this week. Just not in comparison to last week!

Food
I’ve been very so-so on my food this week. I need to put more of a concious effort into the choices I make and stop letting my emotions choose the food. #emotionaleater.

Exercise
I went back to running on Monday, it was difficult! Harder than I thought it would be. Now that I’m a bit more recovered from it I am cautiously looking forward to tomorrows run…Kind of.

Sleep
Sleep is always a big problem for me. Back to work means early mornings and late nights. I need to get into the habit of being in bed as soon as possible after getting home from work!

Goals for Next Week
Weight: 225 pounds
Food: Eat 1500 calories 6 / 7 days
Exercise: Burn 3500 calories
Sleep: Get 8 hours sleep 4 / 7 nights

Weigh In Wednesday…or not?

Hello one and all.

Christmas eve is upon us, and all of the year’s hard work is about to be abolished with obscene amounts of food. Om nom. This year, I decided to attempt some restraint and to not go too crazy! We’ll have to see how that goes…

I’ve no idea how much I weigh today, I wasn’t home this morning so I was away from my scales and whatnot. I can always weigh in tomorrow…What I do have for you, is the remainder of my goals:

Food

Last Week’s Goal: Eat within my calorie limit 6/7 days

Well…I’m telling you now it wasn’t good.

I did: 2/7 Days

Yepp, told you it wasn’t good. I wasn’t over by a large amount each day, but it  added up. most days it was only by 200-300 calories. Though there was an 800 somewhere too…

Too much temptation, too little willpower.

Exercise

Last Week’s Goal: Burn 1000 calories

I Did: 125 Calories, but over ate by 2800 calories – 125 / 3800

Ummm so that was pretty bad. Totting it all up like that really hits home and…it doesn’t feel good. Bad me.

Sleep

Last Week’s Goal: Get 8 hours sleep 4 / 7 nights

I Did: 2 / 7 nights

Again, not good.  I’m not sure how to improve on this other than to do absolutely nothing but go straight to be when I get home from work – which doesn’t really seem plausible.

Goals for Next Week

Weight: 220 pounds (I know full well I will have put on weight, so I need to be back to 220 again by next week!)

Food: Eat within calorie limit 5 / 7 days

Exercise: Burn 1000 calories

Sleep: Get 8 hours sleep 5 / 7 nights

 

P.S. – Merry Christmas!

Weigh in Wednesday

Morning one and all. It’s a week until Christmas and there is food all around. Oh the temptation…

Last week: 221 Pounds
Today: 220 pounds
21.12.14 Goal: 205 pounds – 15 pounds to go.

Clearly I’m going to miss out on my December goal. Theres no way to drop 15 pounds in 4 days without having some sort of major surgery…
On the plus side, I am back down to my lowest weight this year and I have some time left in 2014 to reach a new lowest weight.

Food
Last weeks goal: Eat within my calorie limit 6 / 7 days
I did: 4 / 7 days
Not so great on the food front, I know I’m eating badly but I’m really struggling to eat well. This holiday season is always all about the food, which makes is doubly hard for me because I love food, socialising around food, and overindulging over Christmas. I think this year will be slightly different because I am more aware of what I’m eating, so while I know I will overeat, I will also be curbing it so it doesn’t spiral out of control…

Exercise
Last weeks goal: Burn 1600 extra calories
I did: 587 calories, but overate by 1000 calories – 587 / 2600
I haven’t exercised anywhere near as much as I should or could have. If I had, I probably would have lost more weight this week. I need to keep trying for this.

Sleep
Last weeks goal: Get 8 hours sleep 4 / 7 nights
I did: 1 / 7 nights
That’s pretty bad. To be fair, there were a couple of nights that were between 7 and 8 hours sleep! Over the past 2 nights I’ve started to do a 5 minute yoga routine before bed. This has helped me to relax and get to sleep more quickly, so I want to continue this!

Goals for next week
Weight: 218 pounds
Food: Eat within my calorie limit 6 / 7 days
Exercise: Burn 1000 calories
Sleep: Get 8 hours sleep 4 / 7 nights

I will be doing a weigh in post on Sunday, to write about my 3 month goal and to rejig my upcoming goals to make sure they’re achievable!

Weigh in Wednesday

Christmas, Christmas, Christmas!
The season of all things food. 15 days until Christmas day, and I’m looking forward to it! I don’t know how I’ll manage to hold myself back and not eat everything in sight…

Anyway, weigh in:

Last week: 221 Pounds
Today: 221 Pounds
21.12.14 Goal: 205 pounds – 16 pounds to go

Well, maintaining is better than gaining I suppose. I have 1.5 weeks until December goal and I don’t think I’ll get it. I need to be extremely strict on myself in the run up to Christmas to get into the right mindset of controlled eating. I know I’m not going to hit 205 pounds before Christmas, but I’d like to get as close as I can.

Food
Last weeks goal: Eat within my calorie limit 5 / 7 days
I did: 4 / 7 days
Better than last week, but some of the days were ‘by the skin of my teeth’ within…
Obviously this still needs to improve.

Exercise
Last weeks goal: Burn 500 extra calories
I did: 250 calories, but overate by 1400 – 250 / 1900
I actually think I burned more – especially when weightlifting at the gym on Monday. However, I didn’t measure this with my HRM so I’ve no way to confirm this. I’ll just stick to what I know I burned and improve for next week. I’m still very achey from the gym on Monday, which makes me want to never move again. Obviously that’s not an option…

Sleep
Last weeks goal: Get 8 hours sleep 4 / 7 nights
I did: 3 / 7 nights
This is better than it has been, but still far lower than it should be! I’m finding it hard to switch off in the evenings, too much to do; too little time.

Goals For Next Week:
Weight: 218 pounds
Food: Eat within my calorie limit 6 / 7 days
Exercise: Burn 1600 extra calories
Sleep: Get 8 hours sleep 4 / 7 nights
