Weigh In

Another “did it” post.  That pesky half pound bit the dust this past week to leave me one stone (14 pounds) lighter than when I started out at the beginning of December!  Good riddance, don’t hurry back.

After group this morning I went for another walk/jog.  It was really invigorating to notice that I could run for longer and more often.

I am doing a food log this week, just to make sure my bad food habits don’t start to sneak back in.  So far so good.

That’s it for today.  Hope you all have had a good week.

Got my Bronze Award

As well as giving you an easy-to-follow healthy eating plan Slimming World also encourage you to get off your backside and move.  For the past 4 weeks I have been doing a minimum of 45 minutes per week (spread over at least 3 sessions) of activity that makes the pulse tick over faster.  Most of it has been walking, and I can tell the difference in my stamina/distance levels, but some has been heavy-duty housework (moving furniture and hoovering can really bring on a good sweat).

Now I move on to the Silver Award.  For that I have to do 6 x 15 minutes or 3 x 30 minutes per week for 4 consecutive weeks.  Seeing as my walk to group and back is 10 minutes each way I shall now be changing my route to make it 2 x 15 minutes.

I also need to find some VERY gentle and friendly Zumba style DVDs.  I’ve got one from the library that teaches you some basic moves and then leaves you to wiggle around to some music.  I got a different one out yesterday that says it’s for beginners and intermediates.  Believe me, it’s not for novices at all.  The moves are way too fast and not repeated enough times to give you chance to work out what you’re supposed to be doing.  That one’ll be heading back to the library later this week.

So far this week’s eating has been on-track.  I haven’t blown my Syn limit, or even got that close to it.  I’m hoping I can knock off those 2.5lbs this week.

Weigh in – Slimmer of the Week


Somehow I managed to knock off 3lbs.  Not sure how but I’ll take it.  That means I’ve now lost 9.5lbs since 3rd December.  As well as my half stone award I was also Slimmer of the Week.  And my raffle ticket was pulled out first, too.  I needed two carrier bags to carry it all home in.

The Wii has been moved into the back room so I don’t have to give the entire neighbourhood a giggle at my feeble efforts.  I aim to start back on that this week.  It’s been a while and no doubt I will get a lecture from the Wii Fit for being gone so long.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year.
