so i'm new to all of this! i've never known much about blogging until recently, but after following a few of my WI friends blogs lately, i think i might have the bug for it. i'll try to keep it up to date, and hopefully wont loose interest. i wanted to do this for much the same reasons my friends do, to keep me on the straight and narrow, writing a paper diary, feels somewhat outdated now, but this i think i could get used to. we'll see!
I'm a member of Slimming World and i've already lost 1 stone 13 pounds, but gained 1.5lb last week after my holidays, i want to loose another 2 stone for the wedding and there after keep pushing on till i find myself getting closer to a weight/size that i'm more comfortable with, at the moment i think that will be another 3 or 4 stone, but i'll take it as it comes when i get closer.
i started out as a size 18, some of my size 18 clothes were really tight. now i'm in 16 tops, 16 dresses, i fluctuate between 16 and 18 trousers depending on the shop, i really would like to be a size 14 dress for my sisters wedding in July, thats my first stop goal.
So the sun is shining, its really warm and I only have 1 hour 45 mins of work left.
So as its Monday i figure i should make a plan to try to follow for the week ahead, i think this may help keep me focussed!
1. Drink more water, i used to drink loads but i feel it slipping lately.
2. Eat less syns - i want to try keeping these to a minimum and see how it affects things.
3. Eat a little less fruit, i feel my fruit intake creeping back up slowly, so i need to keep an eye on that, as i learnt the hard way if i eat too much fruit my weight loss suffers
4. get out and walk the dog at least twice this week (my swimming pool membership has run out and i cant justify renewing it until pay day - Tuesday!)
my food diary for today is:
Bfast: 2 x fried eggs (frylight), 1 x wholemeal roll (HEB), 1 syn for butter and 1 syn for tomato sauce
snack: orange and almond cake (3syns), banana
Lunch: 4 x ryvita (HEB) tuna pate (2syns), veg box, ruby orange, banana
Snack: apple, pineapple
Dinner: Pork chop, carrots, cauliflower, green beans, sugar snap peas
so there it is, my first ever blog post!
