Weekend Update/And the winners are!!!

Hello! So before I tell you the dreaded weigh in results let me firstly say that.....

SPUNKY SUZI and ANNABELLE - you girlies are the WINNERS of the grand Jaffa Cake giveaway! Sooooooo....email me please, with your addresses and I will get them to you asap!

And now onto the result!

This week, I.......LOST !! Again!!! HURRRRRRRAAAAAYYYYYYY! Another 2lbs off taking my total to 24lbs off and my current weight to 155.5lbs (11stone 1.5lbs) which means that after a year of trying to get under the 12 stone mark, I am nearly under the 11 stone mark!! I was absolutely delighted with this result - I feel so much more comfortable in my own skin and happy to be me - and that, my friends, is something I cannot overstate! After feeling so very miserable about this whole weight loss malarkey for what seemed like an aaaaaage, I am finally making headway and IT IS FAB!!! Just that subtle shift from 'I am on a diet' to 'I am pursuing a healthy lifestyle' has done wonders for my psyche.

So, this week it's a matter of cracking on to get the job done. I KNOW I can lose 1.5lbs in a week to get into the next stone zone but unfortunately this is one week where it might not happen. I have to be realistic. I have consistently lost for 5 weeks now - a fact which might seem daft to you reading this, but trust me people, this is bloody amazing progress for me!! And I have done this by being focused and determined and not letting anything sidetrack me. This week however, is another story. Tonight is my dad’s birthday so I have not got time to get a gym sesh in (and I ALWAYS judge people when they say that and think ‘you could fit it in if you reeeealllyyyy wanted to…’ but tonight it’s actually true! So I can go Wednesday to the gym for defo and get a good run/row/cycle in and a BodyPump class but then Thursday is Guy Fawkes’ night which means traipsing off to the bonfire and fireworks display in a local park so I won’t be gymming that night, but then I have a training appointment on Friday evening so at least I’ll be working out then. I get really superstitious when I’m losing weight – do you? So in my head right now because I’m thinking I can only gym it every other day this week, I wont lose because I gymmed it every day LAST week and lost…is that utterly barking or WHAT!?

So in short, to bring this ramble to a conclusion, I’m not going to pressure myself if I don’t lose 1.5lbs (especially after near death by tapas-induced food coma over the weekend…) but I sure am gonna TRY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SO I’ll sign off now as it’s past 5pm – hometiiiiiime!!!

Reapeat after me: must not eat own body weight in cake this evening, must not eat own body weight in cake this evening, must not eat own body weight in cake this evening, must not eat own body weight in cake this evening, must not eat own body weight in cake this evening, must not eat own body weight in cake this evening, must not eat own body weight in cake this evening, must not eat own body weight in cake this evening, must not eat own body weight in cake this evening, must not eat own body weight in cake this evening, must not eat own body weight in cake this evening, must not eat own body weight in cake this evening, must not eat own body weight in cake this evening,
