Weight Loss Update: Week 8

I hoped that I would be starting this post in a better frame of my mind.

 
I’ve only got myself to blame and I should have seen it coming really.  
 
I haven’t exercised again this week. Yes, I still have a cough, but my cold has gone now.
 
The first week of my cold I genuinely couldn’t have exercised because my chest was so tight. 
 
The week after I still had a cold, but I was well enough to exercise. I just used my cold as an excuse not to.
 
Food wise this week. I’ve had a mcdonalds for lunch, cake, creme eggs and, well you get the gist!
 
Last week I weighed in at 10st5 having a lost 1lb the week before. This week I weigh 10st6. I’ve gained 1lb. 
 
I thought had gained more than this, so I was pleasantly surprised when I looked at the scales!
 
I know I keep saying that since starting the 12 week NHS Live Well plan that it’s changed my eating habits, but it really has. 
 
The thing is I feel even more guilty now than I did before I started the plan about what I’m eating. 
 
Maybe, no scrap that, definitely, because I’m more aware of how many calories I’m consuming. 
 
I promise myself and you! That from this day forward I will consume no more than 1,400 calories a day. 
 
I will eat fruit and more vegetables.
 
I will exercise more and use my cross trainer so that I will have a beach body to die for come our summer holiday later this year!
 
Wish me luck!
 
My New Years resolution is brought to you in colloboration with Argos.

  1. You really mustn't be too hard on yourself. Having a 'bad' week is normal and does happen. It's mor important that you know it was an anomaly, not the norm. McDonalds and Creme Eggs are occasionally a necessity 😉

  2. It's tough to stick to a diet/exercise regimen when you aren't feeling well. Sometimes I find at the tail end of a cold a little cardio helps kick it out, but the first few days I feel like rest is the best. And I agree with BakedPotato Mummy sometimes McDonalds and Crème eggs are needed!
