It has been a rather interesting week…
This week I really took on board the advice of ‘everything in moderation’. I know that my weight loss journey is a marathon rather than a sprint, and I don’t like the idea of telling myself I can’t have something I fancy. If I’ve found myself craving something sweet, I’ve allowed myself to have a little of it, rather than a large portion.
My meals have been slightly irregular this week, as I’ve either felt super hungry or not at all. This is really something I want to work on – regular, healthy meals rather than smaller portions of less healthy foods. Something I’ve typically eaten as a meal is one of the Pasta n’ Sauce packets – I know it’s not fresh, but at least there’s portion control and the calorie count doesn’t read too badly, either.
All in all, I feel I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve eaten this week but would like to make some healthier choices in the coming weeks.
Aha, now this is where the post gets interesting! I have absolutely loved getting back into exercise this week – I have been swimming as much as I can (50 lengths per time), and I am now doing those lengths of the pool in around 35 minutes. I really want to get my time down to 30 minutes so that’s my next goal!
On the days I haven’t been swimming, I’ve been doing more of the Tiffany Rothe workouts. I purchased two 1.5kg weights to aid my training and they have really helped to start toning my arms.
I’ve made a decision – when I reach my weight goal, I’m actually going to cancel my gym membership. When I’m only maintaining my weight, I’m going to do as many home-exercise sessions as possible each week – there are some amazing workout guides out there, and mostly for free too!
Drum roll please…
Weekly weight loss: 1lbs ** Total weight loss: 10 lbs
Woo hoo! I’m back to my pre-holiday weight, but know I still have much to achieve. All I can say is bring on next week!
