Operation Wobbly Bottom: Week 25

Oh dear oh dear.

For the first time since I started, I have gone WAY off track. I have literally stuffed my face for five out of seven days. I have had crisps, Chinese meals, random late night toast and butter, big chunks of white chocolate, mashed potato with butter, bottles of lager...

I don't know what was going on. Last week I did three SP days (basically, you eat more veg and less carbs.) This didn't really pay off as I only lost a pound, and clearly I have been making up for feeling deprived this week.

*sighs*

And so my gain was entirely expected. I'm surprised it wasn't more. I just have gone WELL OFF.


So I am now back to 10 stone 8 lbs. I would like to lose 3lbs this week to get my two stone award and get back on track.

I've just eaten a Penguin.

*screams*

I will break this cycle. I have meals planned from Monday, but we are going out for tea tonight and we are out again for dinner tomorrow. I don't want to beat myself up - I do have a life and I can't be the one who eats salad all the time, but equally, I don't want to undo all the hard work I have put in.

I need a plan of action.

However, I tend to console myself with the fact that although I gained 2.5lbs this week - I read about 4 books and I'm doing a Masters and I have three kids and two jobs. I have a lot on, and I think I'm managing great - something was bound to slip!!!

*draws a line*

It's just a blip. I feel better overall when I eat well. I have more energy and I don't feel bloated. I suppose this weekend I will have "treats" as we are out. But I will try to make the right choices and then get straight back to it Monday.

The main thing is that I keep at it and don't let it all slide away from me. Fit for Christmas, that was the plan, and I've done most of the hard work. I just need a final push!!

*screams again*

  1. I need to get back on it - I'm scared of the scales since my Birthday celebrations - two weeks of eating and drinking! x
