Strive for progress, not perfection!


I feel like I lost my motivation last week, well, motivation when it came to weight loss, eating healthy and what not. I am determind to get back on track now though, I HAVE to do this. Even just loosing 4lbs will put me at a weight I haven't been for almost two years.
I've been looking at skinny photos of myself, which has given me inspiration. I've dug out some skinnier jeans and tops that I haven't worn for over two years. That also gives me inspiration and motivation. It's just so hard to stay on track, especially when the scales are saying I haven't lost very much weight!

This week I am going to eat healthy and stay eating healthy. Despite the fact that it's probably not the right time of the month as I usually crave chocolate and all things that are not good for weight loss, I know I can do this. I've done it before, I know I CAN do it again. I just need to stay strong.

I know my body has changed and I totally do have more stamina, I noticed when I was jogging/power walking on Friday, I wasn't getting out of breath as fast, I could jog for a bit longer without having to stop and feel like I was going to pass out! I've also started level 2 of the thirty day shred which is awesome! I am actually enjoying it more than I thought I would.

Also, I am not going to weigh myself until 23rd July. That gives me time to at least see a small weight loss, right? If I keep weighing myself too frequently and I don't see a change, I get really dis heartened and just feel like giving up. I don't want that. I am not giving up!

My meal plan this week looks like this:

Monday - Jacket potato with tuna and salad.

Tuesday - Turkey breast (sprinkled with chilli spice) and sweet potato fries and salad

Wednesday - Stir fry (I'll make my own, I don't like the pre made ones as I don't like cabbage and what not)

Thursday - Wholemeal pasta with chicken, sweetcorn, cucumber, red onions and a tiny dollop or light mayo

Friday - Egg salad

Saturday - Low fat chicken Korma with brown rice

Sunday - Sunday roast (all low fat, low carbs)

I'll be sticking with just drinking water. No bread for me either as it really doesn't agree with me. I seem to have built up an intolerance to bread. Any bread. I'll have 0% fat yogurt, fruit and cracker breads for a snack. I might purchase some snack a jacks, just for when I crave crisps because snack a jacks are way healthier than normal crisps.
As you can see, I have a lot of salads thrown in there. I really could use some healthy recipes if anyone has any they'd like to share with me.

Wish me luck!

  1. Br careful with low fat yogurts then tend to have a lpt of sugar in them. Get the weight watchers yogurts, less sugar! Great meal plan :D xx

  2. I love the first quote! Now I feel bad because I'm sat here eating a chocolate orange haha, oops.

  3. Go for it! I'm so impressed you're on level 2 of 30 Day Shred, I couldn't do level 1 it was so hard! I should really give it another go but I'm too scared to at the moment!

  4. I think you're right to get weighed infrequently. I only get weighed once every 10-14 days otherwise I think I'd be seeing teeny tiny changes on the scales and I'd actually find that quite de motivating. x
