Monday Weigh In

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...

  3. Hey Tash, have you got any tips for easy to prepare snacks that are still really tasty? I'm running out of ideas and getting bored with the same old fruit salads.

  4. Hello my dear - when I first read this I thought it was for your little boy! doh so I'm typing her with Finger Food for babies and toddlers book beside me! Well I would say get away from the idea of snacks in general - you need to see food as fuel and if you need to snack between meals it should be a piece of fruit or some full fat yogurt (I only have a few tablespoons and would rather have this than the artifical stuff). IF you're hungry between every meal then you will lose weight xx
