How am I already at week 8?! Have I really been trying to lose weight for 2months? No, actually 7weeks, which makes me feel slightly better about my minimal progress. I’m gonna call this week 7 and the first weigh in week 0 from now on. I think that makes a bit more sense. Slight freak out over, I didn’t post yesterday as I had a friend come to stay, which was so nice! But the weigh-in is from then I just didn’t get chance to do my write up.
Now, I have to confess, I haven’t been taking this healthy eating seriously enough and have been going over my calorie count. Add to that my complete lack of exercise and well its amazing I lost any weight at all! I need to stop making excuses, so tonight I’m making a change and am taking up the 30 days of yoga challenge I’ve heard such good things about. I am going to do it tonight before I am allowed to watch Game of Thrones! I also made myself take a full hour lunch break at work today and go for a 20min walk during that even though I wore inappropriate footwear for such activities. Every little bit helps.
Starting Weight: 13st 5lb
Today’s Weight: 13st 0lb
Lost This Week: 0lb
Total Weight Loss: 5lb
Another no progress. Still no gain, which is great, but as I haven’t weighed in on the blog in two weeks I have to say that I did put on last week and only really lost it this week because I had a stomach bug and couldn’t even keep down water for a day. (Overshare?) I did weigh myself once I was feeling better and I did get 1lb below the 13stone mark but that was only due to dehydration and not eating properly for days, so I don’t mind putting that back on, as I am feeling good again, which is far more important.
As of tonight, I have extra motivation! I have booked a holiday to Amsterdam in August! Super excited, but definitely don’t want to look like a blob in my photos, especially with some naturally super skinny friends going too. I’ve got just under 10weeks until I go and I would like to lose a stone in that time. Considering my current rate of progress, it is a bit ambitious, which is why I am going to need to start doing more exercise to achieve it. I need to do the exercise anyway but a little extra motivation never hurt.
What do you do to keep motivated?
