This week saw a maintain. After being very naughty and doing lots of flexi-syning (going above and beyond the limit of 15) on several days, I’m more than happy to take that.
I am so over this hot weather. The forecast is for it to continue for the rest of the month! I shall be a right grump by then.
3lbs off and SotW. 1lb to go.
It has been a fun week in a very not funny way. Hubby’s surgery went according to plan, as is the recovery. Unfortunately the recovery includes lots of pain and just when you think you’re about done with that it ramps up even more for a few days. This is where we’re at right now and it’s tough on both of us. The running up and down stairs has got the Body Magic ticking along nicely.
The stress of seeing your loved one in absolute agony and there’s nothing you can do is hard to take. So, my appetite is down and I’ve been eating a little ‘off-plan’ – not as much as I would have done last year so the SW way has obviously gotten ingrained.
Roll on next week.
Yes!!!! I lost a pound to get my 2 stone award. Just 4lbs more to hit my target.
I consider myself VERY lucky to have done it this week. Last week I was away visiting family and going out for the day. So, my food choices weren’t always the best. In fact, I think I flexi-syned every day! When I got on the scales on Saturday (2 days ago) I’d put on 2lbs from my last weight in. Somehow or other – and please don’t ask me how ‘cos I don’t know (but if I did I’d bottle it and sell it) – I lost 3lbs in 2 days.
Whilst at group this morning I left my purse in my bag so I ran back to get it. Big mistake. The consultant yelled at me to stop running on my bad knee. By the time I left group it was feeling a bit twingy. Then when I got home I indulged in some Body Magic – otherwise known as spring-cleaning the bedroom. Let’s just say the ice pack was my bestest friend this afternoon.
So, dear readers, for those of you who know about this sort of thing. I tweaked (twisted/sprained) my MCL – no tearing. How long do I rest it? It’s 2 days shy of 5 weeks since I did it. Should I still be taking it easy or should I be doing some sort of rehabilitative excerise? The urge to run again is really pulling at me but I don’t want to make things worse. Any ideas, please??????
You’d think, with losing a pound this past week, I’d be happy. Well I’m NOT!!!!! Why? Because I’d set myself the target of 2lbs off, but would have settled for 1.5lbs off as this would have gotten me my 2 stone off award. So, I’m sulking.
And because I don’t always learn easily I have set myself the target of 5lbs off in two weeks. Think I must have masochistic tendencies.
Another half pound off. Not sure I deserve it after the excess alcohol and two lots of proper fried chips during the past couple of weeks.
Anyway, it has inspired me to get the last 6lbs off by 1st July. That’ll see me at target – for now, at least. I’m still leaning towards dropping the target another 11lbs but will have at least a month at the current target to see how I go.
To be honest I never thought I’d make this first target. The little voice in my head kept telling me that I’d lose a few pounds and then put it all back on again with interest so why was I bothering. I’d been approaching a new stone number for a few weeks, dithering between 0.5lb on or off, or maintain. I got fed up of that so told the voice to get lost! The following week I broke through to a new stone number and haven’t looked back. OK, so there have been a few see-sawings here and there, but they were self-inflicted by getting carried away with syns.
Can’t wait for July to come!
Thanks to my
stupid knee, getting to weigh-in wasn’t on the cards to day. I can report that, informally, I have put on half a pound. But that’s on my scales at home so doesn’t count.
Speaking of the knee, the swelling and tenderness have migrated slightly to the lower hamstring tendon. I’m off for a sports massage tomorrow and will be going on the bus as I don’t think driving afterwards will be a smart move. Think the rehab from this injury might take a while – definitely longer than a few days.
Last night I had chicken and chips – no veg. Proper fried chips. I decided I deserved them. Honestly, I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve had fried chips since the beginning of December. Pre-Slimming World I had them most nights.
A new stone number!!!!!!!!! I lost the pound I needed to shift to get this. Just 6.5lbs to go to target.
I am a happy bunny, so happy that I may be an annoying, tormenting little so-and-so for the rest of the day. I got my Gold Body Magic Award – 8 weeks of 150 minutes of moderate+ exercise spread over at least 5 days. AND I lost half a pound, despite expecting a maintain at best – 2 large glasses of wine on Saturday evening, and a gammon roast with hubby’s yummy (and not SW-friendly in the least) gravy last night.
The best thing today, though, is that I have lost 7.25 inches in 2 months. That’s off my chest, ribs, bum/top of thighs, hips and waist. Seriously friends, I am flying high!!!!!!!!!!!
After a week of being off-plan nearly as much as being on it – think 2 x pizza takeaways, sweet wine, pub lunch – I was gobsmacked to lose 3.5lbs!!!! The getting fit has been a bit thin on the ground too.
Normal service is resumed this week.
So, half a pound on this week. Not great news but given the amount of naughtiness involved this week, I’ll take it. The coming week isn’t going to be a good losing one either. Gotta take the in-laws back home, and I’m having an extra day up there to see other family members, so it’ll be Friday before I get back to what passes for normal round here.
Oh, and today is our wedding anniversary so I refuse point blank to be “good” today.
