Monday Weigh In

Well, well, well it looks like I have returned to October 2011 when I started this blog. By that I mean maintaining my weight by exercising and not watching what I'm eating.  I am the same weight as last week. I'm pretty good at this maintaining malarkey aren't I?

I had a shit week last week. Husband did get better by Thursday and gingerly went into work on the Friday. I did stay away from eating anything Frazzle related but on Saturday and Sunday celebrated his return to the family fold by eating quite a few hero chocolates. He keeps doing that, coming back from the paper shop, not only with the papers but with a box of Hero's. I think its this weather. If he could he'd try and get away with that SAD syndrome - you know that seasonal disorder bollocks. I tell him to man up and he's not aloud to be depressed due to the weather. In fact in this household you're allowed about 2 days to be 'depressed' and then you are promptly told to snap out of it. It works for us.

So exercise wise I, yet again, completed 3 gruelling workouts. My legs have definitely reduced. I appear to be visibly (well to me) less wider and my jeans hang a bit better. I ordered a pair of linen (every fat women's friend) navy shorts from Next in size 16 - they do up and don't look half bad. I still have just over a month for them to look a quarter bad. Last year I'm pretty sure they wouldn't have got over my thigh let alone my big butt.

Saturday I did the boot camp work out on Your Shape - my face was so red it was about to self destruct.  And just when I thought I was going to write a blog post along  the lines of "I can do light and fluffy don't you know" then a campaign starts at the school.

I will write a piece about this later and it won't be light and fluffy and I soooo wanted to dip my toe out of my natural rant status.  Essentially the school board of governors agreed to a 'bulge' classroom in January 2013 and they want to be a 2 form entry. For those of you who haven't a clue what that means - at the moment you have one class of 30 children enter the school. They want to change that to 60 children every year doubling the size of the school.

Today I woke with the worst headache imaginable. Remember the New Year's Day type headaches pre-children? Yes that. I don't think it was all the school crap and husband's injury - I think it was the handfuls of chocolates I had at the weekend, the too big homemade pizza I made and the large portion of spag bol I ate. That will teach me won't it.

Oh another tip - if I haven't lost your dieting respect - is plan to workout 5 times a week. I always plan to do this. It never happens. But it does mean you manage to work out 3 times a week at the very least and that's still a good thing.

Until next week...

  1. Wow! And you have just proven that exercise is the key! And it immediately reduces cholesterol! All those diet foods encourage you to eat more anyway. Well done you for your commitment to the exercise and trying new ones too. xxx

  3. I also had a terrible week food wise. I may hold off weighing myself until Wednesday (or Thursday). At least now I see the pattern and every 4th week is very hard not to overeat. This was a 4th week.

    1. why don't you just not weigh yourself this week and draw a line under it. I know those types of weeks they are so hard but half hte battle is recognising that time! xx Keep going x
