Slimming World @ Target – Absentee Me

I am sorry for the absences and the lack of updating I just missed quite a few sessions this month due to work and life so just haven’t had anything to post about, and I haven’t been in the right frame of mind really.

I had a busy Easter and I had a break from work which was very nice but just feeling exhausted, tired and not myself overall. I don’t know what is the cause exactly. I am not sure if it is just work in general, the chronic illness or something else.

Not sure what it is that is causing it but I am kind of getting over it – or pushing through with adrenaline – so will start plugging away and get back on this blogging wagon.

Sorry!

Week 24 @ Target: planning pays off!

Planning really does pay off, I came in with a -2lbs off this week!

While yes I did veer from the plan at times I was a lot more conscious this week of not falling off the bandwagon completely – and as I can’t have sweet things, this helped with my willpower. Sort of….

But, anyway, coming in with a loss felt really really nice. Perhaps it is the promise of Spring, perhaps I just had my head on straight, who knows but I had a loss so I am happy.

And I damn well repeating it next week!!

Week 23 @ Target: and we yoyo again!

20170313_092243

So I started off the month well and I go in on the second week feeling pretty alright – not perfect admittedly, but alright and have put on 2.5lbs!!!! So that made me pretty annoyed if I am honest, however it did spur me to get on it and organise my week.

I wrote out a plan at group last week and this made me feel more in control, while I am not saying that I have 100% kept to this week’s plan, my derivations haven’t been far off and the other eating options haven’t been all synful, so I am feeling better overall. But at this rate who really knows?

Rather than think up a brand new monthly motivation I’ve decided to carry on last months motivation again, as I really should have done it and I don’t have any excuses not to lose in to the next stone bracket this month!

So wish me luck for the month and this week’s weigh in!

Week 22 @ Target: a good beginning to March

I came in last night with a 1lb loss, so while I definitely didn’t get in to that next stone bracket it was a loss so I am pleased with that. It just gets my month of to a good start and hopefully gets me in to the zone.

As I have also decided to give up refined/processed sugar for Lent the non-eating of cakes, biscuits, ice-cream etc. I hope will pay some dividends – though I am divided on yoghurt? Is this bad sugar? I am allowing natural sugars – so in fruit, honey etc. but is yoghurt also processed???

Anyway, I will keep you all updated.

Weigh Day Nerves!

I have my first weigh in this evening after what feels like ages away, though I’ve only missed one, as I usually go Tuesday but I am going to a different group tonight so I won’t leave it another full week, and I am feeling nervous. I am doubting that I met my target from last month – which is disappointing BUT lets not be negative! I am hoping it isn’t too awful but will update soon.

Blog Refresh

So as one of my resolutions I said I would refresh my blog, and today I did! I haven’t done much in the content department but I have superficially altered it, changing the theme.I think this style looks fresher, and cleaner to me – but any thoughts welcome.

I am getting there with how I want this blog to look and feel, slowly but surely.

I think my next big step is to focus on what I want the content to be as it is rather general at the moment. Which isn’t a bad thing, and maybe it might be best to start up another one that is more focused??

I’ll have a think.

Giving myself time every week.

I have decided, and it won’t be easy, to commit to giving myself at least one evening/day every week to do something for me.

This boils down to me realising that if I really want to be able to reflect, move forward and make decisions I also need to dedicate some time to me every week, whether it  is a whole day, a 1/2 day or just an evening it is just important that I find that time.

This basically feeds into one of my resolutions, objectives, for 2017 to get back in to doing some hobbies that I love and really just giving myself some me time, still being a little selfish.

It doesn’t really matter what I am doing. As long as it is something I want to do; reading, writing, learning a language…just anything!

But I need to be really resolute about it though and do it.I so often just let myself get distracted, or pulled along in other waves. So no, no to distraction, no to feeling annoyed because I haven’t got something I wanted done ,and just no to not supporting myself. I will give myself time, and I will make that time happen.
