I’m a month into this gruelling big hairy audacious goal of losing 2 stones in 11 weeks just to jump out of an aeroplane for charity, The Lullaby Trust.
I was very disappointed with my lack of progress in the right direction. Though it is totally understandable, no slimpod will magically make the intake of those serious excess calories of custard and ice cream disappear! The slimpod is fabulous, it’s a miracle worker, but it is not magic, voodoo in any way!
Lunch and dinner at friends’. I was good. Although, as we were staying up late, I didn’t say no to the offer of a midnight snack of cheesecake… I just cannot say no to that. It is an absolute favourite of mine!
Broken uncomfortable night. Late breakfast of toast and a lunch of ice cream … not a good start. We had a lovely BBQ chicken dinner though.
The day consisted of moderate activity enjoying the lovely weather in the garden, mostly gardening and keeping kids entertained.
Another crap night. Max up very early to top it. I had very bizarre, vivid dreams that have left me feeling very unsettled, almost panicky. I find it amazing how much the state of the mind controls us, the lack of regular sleep really messes with our state of mind too. I can see how sleep deprivation can be used as a form of torture.
I slept so much better and felt better for it all day. Consciously ate better and less, resisted the chocolate in the cupboard and I was very proud of myself for it! 🙂
I took on Ana’s comment from last week and at lunchtime I had lettuce with my eggs instead of bread and steamed vegetables with my bolognese instead of the pasta.
Exercise zilch! …I’ll make up for it tomorrow though!
It seems my life revolves around my sleep patterns. One night good, then the other atrocious and I can’t even blame it on any of the Littlins.
We were out of the door before 10am today for various activities and I’m not planning on getting home before Friday.
Today I really don’t know what I ate. We had no real meal times, ate randomly as time allowed between our fun program at Waddesdon Manor.
I was offered chocolate digestives, but chose only to have one for the flavour. I also held back with pasta at dinner time.
Today had been an active day. Walked a lot, played with kids, set up a 6 man tent on my own, …what good work out that last one is!
Another active day of walking loads and I’m not sure what I’ve eaten; the day just sort of flew by.
I said no to a couple of sweet things today and also had a biscuit, fruit bread and pasta. That’s the problem with camping: carbs are easier to prepare!
A day of standing around a lot, kids running miles at a family event.
My main exercise of the day was a rowing sprint on a rowing machine. I did 100m in 23.6 seconds, being the best female of the day. Unfortunately only the top overall score won a prize of going on a white water rafting experience in Lee Valley. That ended up being Dadonthebrink. I’m dead proud and dead jealous. 🙂
Started the day with bacon baps, then had splendid hog roast twice: for an early dinner, then seconds for a proper dinner later. I ate the hog roast without a big bun!
Early start after an exhausting day yesterday.
As I’m camping and didn’t bother to bring scales. I am going to weigh myself first thing Monday.
So Monday has come and I’ve stepped on those dreaded scales.
Will they show what my jeans are showing?
You see everything is fitting ever so much better. My jeans which I couldn’t squat down in for fear of ripping them are loose on my thighs.
Some of it is showing in weight too!
… 0.6 kg that’s 1.3lb
Way off my weekly target, but in the right direction.
I am 2.5 kg behind, so need to get more focused if I’m going to do this. I really don’t want to let anyone down! … Least of all myself!!!
This week I will:
- Adjust my meals to be more protein based
- Walk 20 minutes at a quick pace 4 times and swim 30 lengths in our local 25m pool
- Carry on with my effort to drink 2 liters of water everyday
- … and I will still allow myself to ice cream, with limits. 😉
Thank you if you have sponsored me so far! If you like to help me, please make a pledge in the comments section below at what point and by how much you will sponsor me. I still have 13kg to loose in the coming 7 weeks.
Will you help me? Will you join me?
