Weight Loss Update Week 4

To read last week’s post, please click here.
 
So far I have lost a grand total of 10lbs! I’m actually very proud of myself for sticking to my new diet and exercise regime for as long I have. I know it’s only been four weeks, but this is the longest that I have ever actually stuck to a diet and the great news is that I still feel motivated enough to continue on my weight loss journey!
 
Unfortunately this week I have actually gained one pound, so my current weight is 10st6. I’m not disheartened by this though, because I know where I have been going wrong. For the past few evenings I have been having two slices toast. 
 
I broke my rule of not eating after 7pm, but from yesterday onward I am back on track! 
 
My target weight is 9st7 so I’m not too far off. If you haven’t read my previous weight loss posts then I’ll just recap on my goals. Obviously eating healthy food, avoiding junk food and eating no more than 1,400 calories a day. 
 
I’m also aiming to do 90 minutes of excercise a week and this is split into three 30 minute sessions over three days. This week I have done 66 minutes of exercise! Unfortunately, one of our twins was ill on Thursday meaning I only managed to do 6 minutes of exercise.
 
If you’ve read last weeks post then you’ll know that I have been using my Roger Black 2-in-1 cross trainer and exercise bike. I was also sent a set of Maxitone weights from Argos as part of my new years resolution so I’m hoping to incorporate that into my workout regime this week. 
 
I’ve actually found that since starting my weight loss journey there are lots of different types of fitness equipment available and most of which can easily be fitted in your home. When Twin Daddy and I buy our first home together I’m planning on having a quiet area for myself where I can put all my gym equipment and exercise.
 
Anyway, that’s enough talk of exercise for now, let’s take a look at what I’ve been eating this week!
