So, I’ve been a bit quiet since last weekend and yes that’s because I had a gain this week. Only half a pound but still, I was a little annoyed with myself.
After last weekends food debauchery, I have been super good sticking to plan this week, making sure that I eat the speed foods along with my protein. And on Sunday I weighed myself at home and had reached 22st 13lbs!! That’s 2 stone lost in 8 weeks. Not sure if it will translate to the scales at SW on Thursday evening – but I am doing everything to make sure it does.
So whilst I had a scale defeat this week, I did have some ‘non’ scale victories. Only small things – but things that made me go Whoop Whoop! none the less.
We have some really big blue bath towels. I have never been able to cover up properly with these bath towels, it meets okay at the top (when you tuck it in itself) but then there is a graduating gap towards my knees that leaves nothing to the imagination. This weekend I got out of the shower and wrapped the towel around me only to notice that there was no gap! The towel fit all the way around me – modesty reigns! Whoop whoop!!
For the past 6 months or so whilst my walking has been particularly bad, I have been wearing sketchers which have been soooo comfortable, and have enabled me to continue to walk as my feet were in too much pain wearing my usual ballet flats. On Sunday this week I wore shoes with a heel for the first time. I looked fab and felt fab! My feet hurt a little after an hour, but small steps (no pun intended). Whoop Whoop!
I popped up to see my mum and dad yesterday for an hour, they live two flights up from me in the same building. There is no lift and two flights of stairs, which I usually take one step at a time (two feet per step). Yesterday I marched up those steps like a normal person (one foot per step) and was not out of breath when I got to the top. Whoop Whoop!!
After my success at walking up the steps at home yesterday, I decided on the spur of the moment to avoid the lift at work today (I work on the 1st floor) and usually take the lift every day. I managed it with only a slight moment out of breath at the top, and then I had to pop downstairs again for something later and did it again! So that is two extra stair climbs than normal today. Its only lunchtime so there is opportunity for another go before home time! Whoop Whoop!!
This week I am hoping for a big scale victory as I want to see that 2st award on my kitchen door next to my other awards.
Thanks for reading.
