It's not easy! #BloggingToJogging00:00
This week I lost 2.2lbs, which means I have 4lbs to do until I reach my first goal!
I think I mentioned last week how my size 10 tops are starting to fit again, which is great! Yes, I can see my flabby bits because a size 10 "hugs" me but at least I can get it on and over my boobs! I'm rather quite chuffed with that! I have been wearing size 12 jumpers which are actually a little baggy on me instead of being too tight and looking awful! I don't think it will be too long before size 10 tops fit me better! The same with my size 10 jeans. I tried on my size 10 river island jeans the other day thinking "There's no way they're going to over my thighs" (They are my absolute favourite jeans) I was very surprised that they DO go over my thighs and I can even do the button up! This hasn't happened for around two years (give or take) so that in itself is quite an achievement. However, I don't feel comfortable or confident in them because they are tight, I'm just pleased I can actually get them over my thighs and the button and zip done up without having to squeeze and pull! If that's no motivation, then I don't know what it is!
I walked around 35 miles in total last week (thanks to my fitbug orb for tracking it). Not bad. Not bad at all! I did ache and only did level 1 of the thirty day shred a couple of times, I was also very tired. I don't want to over do it though. I have children to look after, a household to keep going and a routine to stick to, I can't afford to be ill! I find listening to my body easier now, I know when enough is enough, hence why doing an easier level of the 30 day shred. Does that make sense?
I have lost a total of eighteen pounds (and a few ounces) so far. All is good.
I've fell off the healthy eating bandwagon this weekend though and I need to get back on it! I haven't done BAD but I haven't done good either. I can do better - I HAVE done better so I know I can do it! It's nice to "indulge" every now and again but it's becoming a habit again. A habit that needs to stop I find myself picking while I'm cooking the kids (yummy) dinners or making packed lunches and that is not a good habit to have. Someone please tell me I'm not the only one who does this!
My anxiety has been in full swing the last few days. I hate it SO much! It's so, so hard to control. I find myself worrying about silly things and then I get anxious and guess what I turn to? Food. Nothing overly bad but even so, rather than eating 2 packets of snackajacks and a special K cereal bar right off in one go, I should moderate it more! Ugh. I feel like I've failed a bit there but again, I could have turned to chocolate or proper crisps. At least I went for the healthier option, even if I did have more than I was suppose to have *sigh*
Let me know how your weight loss journey is going! I do love reading about everyone elses journeys! :)
