Christmas is going to come along and stuff me up I'm sure. And we have a full-on foodie weekend this weekend too. So I will have to really pace myself. I will order wisely at restaurants and cafes, don’t fill up on bread, limit alcohol intake, and share desserts.
Here’s my stats to date:
Overall Goal: Lose 8kg
Current Loss: 3.3kg
I’m almost halfway there!
After a couple of weeks of maintaining my weight, I thought that my food intake must have been gradually increasing without me realising it. I can eat more so inconspicuously which makes it easy to slip into denial and think, ‘I’m not doing anything different’.
It’s always about food with me – specifically about overeating. So I readjusted my food intake and had just fruit for afternoon tea. And the last three mornings I've seen the scales drop. I am now 3.3kg down! I am delighted with this.
I'm feeling so good about myself though. And my clothes are all starting to feel much more comfortable.
I have noticed that I need to stretch my calves both before and after exercise. With my exercise routine of walking, yogalates, weights and stretching, I can feel myself getting stronger. Squatting up and down to put groceries away in the crisper at the bottom of the fridge is effortless now.
If / when the weather warms up I may even introduce swimming. We have a beautiful pool just up the road a bit. It completely knackers me though, swimming! But I do love it.
