Get back on that wagon!

Ugh.

So I took 3 weeks off of Slimming World. And I gorged. And I gained 2.5lbs. I know it could be worse. It could also be better.

In 8 months I have lost 7lbs.

But
In 8 months I have lost and kept off 7lbs
And
In another 8 months I could lose another 7lbs
So

I am back on it. Going to chill out about it. (Me and chilled do not belong in the same sentence).
I'm going to go slowly, take it easy. Enjoy my journey.

777 Challenge II. Somethings gotta give

Last time I did the 777 challenge I gained 0.5lb. GAINED!
BUT the week after I lost 2.5lbs (my biggest weekly loss to date).

Here we go...

Self-sabotage vs. Determination

When emotions are running high there's a very thin line between throwing the towel in and igniting the drive to persevere.

Which side do you fall on?

Day 2 of Kay's Soup Challenge

Well I'm not very good at this.
Recently its been hard enough for me to stick to SW at all, let alone introducing a really complicated and difficult challenge.
And starting on Easter Weekend?! Am I mental...??

Kay's Soup Challenge - 1 week of low carb, soup-eating fun!

Kay is a member on my beloved site minimins and has come up with the souper (get it) challenge which I had planned to embark on today.

I was very VERY unprepared. Still am (?)

Last night I went to bed at about 11pm, rather smug with this weeks STS and pondering soup. Was woken up at about 2:50am (by my partying boyfriend who fell asleep quite promptly), and I thought about soup for about an hour and a half. Then I was up at 6am chopping courgettes.

My soup was actually delicious!!! A bit watery (very watery) but also very yum!


Date: 17/4/14
Day of Challenge: 1
Plan: Red
Water intake: 1.5l (so far)
Carbs: sushi (oops)
Body magic: 45 minute walk to work (2.2 miles) carrying 1.2l of soup in one hand and 1.5kg of yogurt and fruit on my back. 2.2 miles home. 1.5 miles to friends and back. 1.4 miles to town and back
Syns: 5 from sushi (16 from vodka!)
Soup: garlic (SF), onion (SF)(S), red pepper (SF)(S), courgette (SF)(S), passata (SF)(S), seasoning & stock


Do you know what though. I’m not going to do the guilt/ punishment thing this week. If I do one day of the challenge- great. If I do 7- great too!

We’re so good at beating ourselves up but would never talk to anyone else in the same way. (As if I’ve had a revelation!) Seriously though, why is that?

Anyway I’m going to be very sloshy with all this water, tea, yogurt and soup. Bleurgh
