Sunday weigh-in : Rain rain go away !

Fitness Motivation

Last week, I finished off by saying "For the next two weeks, I'm on holiday so I'm back in control. Next week, I'll be pushing myself harder so I'll be hoping for a loss. To be honest, I'm happy to still be in the 87's !" I had big plans to get out running with the kids then storm Imogen kicked in with high winds and lashing rain. I did manage to fit in a wii fit run though and we went for a 13km walk too. Foodwise, there were highs and lows - I ate well most of the week, even having a Fry Up Salad for Sunday luch which was surprisingly tasty and satisfying, but then we went out for a meal for Juliette's birthday which meant Jambalaya and gooey chocolate cake ! In years to come, we'll remember eating the cake but I won't remember what the scales said though !  I've been tracking my food this week and came in under my calorie allowance every day, but it's always a bit hit and miss because I don't weigh anything. 

Today the scales said 87.2kg - a 600g loss, that's good enough for me :)

Positives of the week

- The XLS is apparently still working in the background, balancing out the splurges on birthday cake

- We didn't get out for a run but we all wanted to - even the kids said "we should be getting out running" so it's ingrained now that the weekend = a family run !

- Great to see the scales on the move again :) Last week : 6kg lost, 13lb lost, 48lb to go - this week 7kg lost, 14lb lost, 47lb to go

Current targets 

Last week's target :  Fit in at least two runs (one on the wii fit, one outdoors) and one long walk with the kids. Eat loads of salads, veggies and fruit. Swap at least half of my diet coke for water. Get back into listening to the Slimpod. Aim for 86 point something (lower end of 87's would be great too). (DONE)

This week's targets : Get into the 86's. Get in another run (wii fit or outdoor) and a big walk. Fit in loads of fruit, veg and salads. Listen to the slimpod.

Short-term targets 

(1) get back into the 80's
(2) get my "lbs lost" back into double figures
(3)  get my "weight to lose" badge down into the 40's
 (4)  get back to 87kg, my pre-holiday weight   
(5) get my "kg lost" badge back into double figures 
(6) get my "weight loss" badge higher than my "still to go" badge
(7) get back into my (smallest) bright blue jeans comfortably
(8) get back to 77kg - my lowest weight since my pregnancies

Longer-term targets :  Hit my target weight of 70kg.

START WEIGHT :93.7kg (BMI 34.8)
WEIGHT LAST WEEK  : 87.8kg (BMI 32.6)
WEIGHT TODAY : 87.2kg (BMI 32.4)
STILL TO GO : 17.1kg

  3. Woot for the loss! Well done!

  4. I love that - the fact you will remember the cake but not what the scales said - and it is so true! Check you out lady, you are on a roll at the moment and it's fantastic to see how positive your posts are! That fry up salad looks lovely, I do love cooking with bacon lardons! Hope you are having a lovely week chick and thank you for linking up with #WeightLossWednesday! Sim xxx

    1. Thank you ! I'll be right over to check out your new post xx

  5. Great news, Cheryl - we both managed a weight loss this week so I am celebrating with you :) Have a wonderful week with hopefully fewer storms! Special Teaching at Pempi’s Palace

    1. Yay, well done ! :) It's still pretty cold and rainy but we've got out for some long walks

  6. You are going great! Well done! The weather has been awful hasn't it, hopefully it'll start getting better. Hope you have a good week xx

  7. Congrats on the loss, I know what you mean about the weather, it makes me so lazy when it rains! Roll on better weather

  8. A 13km walk! I'd die after 1.3km! Well done on losing this week. You're right though, you have to fit weight loss into your life, you're not going to have birthdays to celebrate every week but when you do you can't feel like you're missing out just because you're dieting. Have a great week x
