As you have all come to expect its a late blog post from me tonight. Like The Bangles sang Monday's are manic for me. Although it could have been less so today with regard to my cleaning schedule. I forgot that the hubster is knocking down walls tomorrow. Buddy's room is going to be made bigger by eating into the spare room and our living room is also getting a make-over. When my husband has a couple of days off work he builds or knocks things down. He's very handy, gets things done and has just purchased a new laptop for me and he's not even having an affair!
So I could have omitted washing the floors and dusting on my Monday check list. I could have had a whole hour or so of complete faffing. Such a wasted opportunity. I promise one day I am going to live up to the stereotype of a stay at home mum. Its right up there on my bucket list - sit for a whole day on the sofa, only getting up for food and drink whilst watching day time telly. I have set a deadline of 55 years old. I think its achievable don't you?
So onto weight loss matters. 1lb down. A loss. Now ordinarily I would be a bit cheesed off with this as I have been outstanding on the food front. Well pretty much as I was at the beginning of my diet back in October. I think the big fat pink neon tutu pictures were just the ticket. Wake up call. Not to mention ordering union flag maxi dresses for two parties we are invited to. I looked like I was 6 months pregnant and I've had to order a T-shirt to go with jeans instead. If I was slimmer I could have worn a 50's style number and looked all ladylike instead I have a punk wig winging its way to me. Sigh.
I think I only manged 3 x workouts last week including the Race for Life number. The heat had a bearing as at the weekend I didn't want to workout. Today was just as hot and I thought I can't use the heat as an excuse so did 30 mins of my Biggest Loser workout. I was sweating like mad but it felt good though. The reason I don't mind the -1lb loss is that I think I'll have a bigger loss next week. Sometimes my body must just think "are we dieting properly again?"
I have been hungry all week between meals which is a good sign. The ryvitas, salads, fresh fruit and salad are doing the trick and I didn't get lulled into a holiday mood due to the good weather. My mind was firmly focused on August and how I will be in bad form if I'm the same size.
Until next week...
