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 20 @ Target: needing a bit of motivation

So I had a stinker of a cold, in fact, I still have a stinker of a cold, and it won’t go away. Thus, in true old wives fashion I fed the cold, I REALLY fed the cold! I was therefore not at all surprised to find I had put on 2.5lbs this week!

I don’t think this was also helped by the monthly curse rearing up on weigh day (great timing!), however it wasn’t the sole reason. I was bad, very bad. I felt rubbish and just ate what I fancied, and as I was at my lovely in-laws at the weekend I had no control switches.

We had a very nice Chinese, and lots of other food. BAD, BAD, BAD! But despite this I am feeling OK, yes it was a gain which I didn’t want but it is a new week, new start so lets just go from there.

I have also, as promised, been thinking about my monthly motivation for February. I’ve given myself a tough one, by the end of the month I want to be in the next stone bracket, a goal that has been eluding me since after my illness! I think this one will be especially hard with February being so much shorter – so fewer weigh ins in which to achieve it! I will have to be much more disciplined and focused. Oh crap!

Wish me luck!

Week 15 @ Target: 2017 #goals

Hello, all. So as you may know I am not really at target, not properly, and I do think my target was hard for me to keep following my illness and recovery. It didn’t at the time feel like a natural weight as I hadn’t got there naturally, however I do need to re-kick my weight loss, exercise motivation and get out of my post-recovery slump.

In 2017 then I have decided to set myself a monthly weight and fitness goal, to give myself bite size motivational targets to stop me reaching for the pies, crisps, chocolate – anything really! After coming in last night with a 2.5lb gain, which I totally deserved after my hedonistic new year eating (unfortunately not so much with the drinking with UC) it has given me a wake up call to be better and more focused.

I am therefore setting myself the goal of losing my festive gains (3.5lbs in total) by the end of January, sustain it, and to ensure that I am exercising at least once a week, I need my exercise routine back. It’s not a massive goal but a small one, and one at the moment where I am swinging in to things that I think I can manage.

Wish me luck!
