Weigh-in Weirdness....

Double you tee eff is going on?! This week I lost 4.5lbs and am back down to 168.5! In a week!

Don’t get me wrong, I am HAPPY but I didn’t kill it at the gym last week or anything, and I ate pretty well but not super strict! I guess it shows me that my poor little body is returning to some semblance of normality after the DP debacle J and can actually lose weight now.

That said, I still feel like there’s a loooooonnnng way to go to get to goal but I feel inspired, motivated and ON IT, so this week I am simply going to carry on as usual, focusing on filling foods, tracking, exercising and enjoying my life! I think I’m starting to believe again that I will eventually be at goal, rather than feeling defeated and HUGE all the time.

I had a great weekend! We’re having something of a heat wave here in the UK at the minute – it’s gorgeous! Although being back at work today fully sucks as it’s so hot outside!! I’m really struggling with what to wear while it’s hot – during the (usually) crappy weather I live in tights and my suits but I would PASS OUT wearing that today! On Friday I wore last season's Vera Wang summer dress that I found at TK Maxx for £16.00 - BARGAIN! I always feel very Carrie Bradshaw in that frock, it makes me strut!!

A man passed comment on my legs in the street he other day! Cheeky bugger! He said ‘God love, aren’t your legs white’ Can you BELIEVE that? So I replied ‘firstly, how rude are you? And secondly, I AM white, you jackass’ and stalked off!

That said, I decided it was high time to get some colour on my pasty legs so spent all day yesterday in my parents’ garden with my ipod and the Sunday Times. It was BLISS! I was a good girl and kept reapplying sunscreen and as a result have a nice pink hue to my skin which is not burn and does not hurt!

Here I am - bikini and everything (inspired by Jen’s recent posts!!)

Back tracking a bit – Saturday afternoon I met the girls for afternoon tea and cakes and chats! It was Wen’s 30th birthday weekend and so Keri, Anna, Wen and I went to Zuger’s - and the best thing was Lucy was there - as a total surprise, so that was really fab! I had a glass of Pinot Grigio blush and amaretto and Baileys cheesecake – seriously amazing.
Saturday evening I spent with the most amazing Rachel, drinking beers and eating Greek Salad and pasta and setting the world to rights - a totally impromptu night but one of the funnest times I’ve had in ages! For those of you wondering where my husband is, he is currently in Paris with a school trip of 30 year 9 pupils – today they’re at Disney – so obviously I officially hate him J

So all in all a great weekend, I did not go near the gym and I feel ok about it! I have to be extra diligent though this week after my weekend! Also got a PT sesh on Friday which I am DREADING – it’s taking me ages to get back into my before dizziness routine/speed/strength/endurance - perseverance is the key though.

Right – it’s lunch time so I’m going outside to get some sunshine! Have a great day people!

Heaps of love ,

BFP xoxo

I didn't get a chance to read your blog yesterday and was so sad.

But - Holy crapola, I am SSSSSOOOOOOO excited you got your butt in a swimsuit! YAY for sharing the inspiration! I love your response to that guy who commented on your legs - ha, some people just don't know when to shut it.

YAY for your weight loss, your hard work is catching up!
