Monday Weigh In

-lb off. That's a 1lb off when I thought I'd put on 3lbs and didn't weigh myself last week so in theory it could have been more if you can work that out. I worked out 5 x last week so was really chuffed with myself and its amazing the difference it has made.  The reason its only 1lb is that I was out on Friday night with the PTA ladies and sank about 8 vodka tonics and a set meal (salmon, turkey and a brownie). I felt mighty rough the next day it has to be said. I haven't touched a drop of alcohol for weeks and thought I was being sensible by not having wine or mixing my drinks plus the fact that when you drink vodka from a pub there never seems to be much alcohol content. Obviously there was as I spoke so much I lost my voice during the course of the evening!
 
I got home about 12.30 am - we had frequented a nightclub above the restaurant we had eaten in. It was one of those establishments, that when you go home you hug your partner, as you are so grateful that you're with someone. Anyone. I think I was easily one of the youngest in there and I can only describe it as where the divorced go to die.  The others went onto a much more lively place but my feet were throbbing - heels and wearing them only once a year are not a good idea. My headache eventually passed at about 5pm the following night.  That was after attending our annual panto with my cousin, her 2 children, my aunt, cath her husband and her two kids.

I had a bacon sandwich in the morning, no lunch and then a HUGE portion of fish and chips followed by some chocolates on Saturday. Not exactly diet food but it sorted my hang over out and I've lost weight so I can't really complain.  I have no other nights out planned this side or on the other side of Xmas so all being equal weight loss should continue.  I have to make sure I don't follow Sainsbury's current adverts for having "Christmas days" i.e eat lots of shit leading up to Xmas. I hate adverts like this - like I hate all the sale adverts on Boxing Day - you just know in a couple of weeks every single advert will be some diet, low cal adverts from the same companies that wanted you to pig out before and during the festive season. Wankers.

Today, I have not exercised. My husband is currently fitting a downstairs shower and all the floorboards are up etc and buddy had his first nativity play at his pre-school and I've got this stupid cough that the kids have had for weeks.  I need to get in 5 x workouts by the end of the week so wish me luck.

Until next time...


My bear head out on the town with the gorgeous mums on the PTA. My friend on the far left lost 3 stone just through diet and exercise!

  1. Well done on the pound off on a tricky week. Hope the cough doesn't get you down too much, you've got enough cough meds to sort it out though! ;)

  3. You're looking good. a lb a week is still 52 lbs a year. Do that for a couple of years and you'll be dead. Maybe you're losing too much too fast? #justkidding
