Weight Loss Wednesdays: Week #8

It has been a rather interesting week…

Diet

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.

Kettle Chips

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.

Exercise

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!

Stay Creative,

    If ou want to have a little change in your workout you can try blogilates on youtube! It’s pilates and I absolutely love the instructor and the workouts. You can get super sweaty in under 10 minutes! Tiffany Rothe cardio and then blogilates toning 🙂

    Ooh!! Swimming! Now that’s something I love! Same here, for a long time I only managed 50 lengths in 35 minutes too, but after a few weeks of hard work I managed in 30 minutes! Swimming is something that keeps me motivated, because there’s always place for improvement! Who nows, maybe in a few weeks I’ll be able to do it in 25 minutes! 😀
