I’m annoyed to find that I put on .6 of a pound – I know it’s not much but it’s still going the wrong way on the scales and the annoying thing is that I can’t figure out why I gained. I haven’t been eating any worse than normal on the non-fasting days and I’ve been super careful with my calorie allowance on the two fasting days. All I can say is that I’ve felt heavier and more sluggish so maybe I’m gearing up for my first post-pregnancy-period or maybe it’s just that second week blip.
Either way, I’m not happy about it so I will be reassessing what I’m eating, possibly having three days of fasting (as apparently 4:3 is the new 5:2) and hoping to find bit of time to add some DDP Yoga back into the mix.
Hoping for better next week!
And what a mighty blip it’s been!
I knew that these two weeks would be a wash with regards to weight loss as we have been away on a family holiday for a week where we ate out pretty much every meal except breakfast and this second week we have had days out, where again, we have eaten nothing but crap. There has been no gym either and I had an unexpected (yet
very somewhat welcome) visit from my good old Aunt Flo. She was a freakin’ witch as per usual but I don’t see her often so when she does appear I try my best to forgive her bitchy ways … that and she always makes me want cake so she earns herself forgiveness in treats even though they are not what I need for my diet. To be honest though, when she’s in town I give zero shits when it comes to healthy food – I eat whatever will make me feel good for those few moments and regret it later.
So yeah, the food situation has been dire and weight has been gained but we had a great time away as a family and now the wheels are firmly back on the tracks so I can start all over again.
Hope you’ve been well,
The weekend was always going to be a bit of a flop, we like to chill and see our family and there is always food and treats doing the rounds. I had already decided that I was going to behave as well as I could over the week so that
if when I was bad over the weekend, I’d have a bit of a buffer.
So over the weekend I managed to put 1.2 lbs on and whilst that may seem high, I lost 4.2 lbs throughout the entire week which gives me a total of 4.6 lbs to lose now for the doctor in five weeks. I’m feeling much better about this now. It also leaves me with 92 lbs to go until I reach my overall goal and 9.8 lbs to go until I can get my first little tattoo reward!
I’m hoping that this weekend will be better but if I can replicate this week again then I’d be over the frackin’ moon!
As I was reading around some of the other blogs that I follow I came across a measurement post by Layers of Fat which reminded me that I was supposed to do the same so that I could see where and how my body changed throughout this journey of mine, so my numbers are currently as follows…
Bust: 110 cm
Chest: 100 cm
Waist: 104 cm
Hips: 116 cm
Thighs: 74 cm
Knees: 50 cm
Calves: 46 cm
Upper arm: 41 cm
Forearm: 28 cm
And thanks to this handy tool my shape is currently looking something like this…
If only my gut looked that smooth, it’s a saggy, flabby mess but maybe one day it won’t be too far off from this.
Right well that’s where I am today so lets see what this next week brings.
I’m off to the gym!
