Before Weigh In:
This week is week 4 of WLB and I’m hoping I’ve done really well. Sometimes you just don’t know how you’ve got on until you nervously step onto the scales and see for yourself.
I haven’t eaten too badly this week; well, other than the Fish and Chips on Friday, which Jay and I shared, because we’d both had a really rubbish week and didn’t want to cook. But, because I have been really busy, I’ve found it quite difficult to stop and find time to eat. Particularly when the shops around near where I work don’t allow for dogs and I don’t trust leaving Ozzy in the office on his own! My packed lunches to work have kind of stopped, because I really haven’t had time to food shop! This weekend, I’m not working so I’ll be able to shop then! I haven’t really been drinking much (not that I ever did in the first place – that makes me sound like a right alcoholic!) apart from at a family friend’s 50th on Saturday.
Exercise has started and I’ve been to Zumba twice and Pilates once. I used to do Pilates when I was at university and used to really enjoy it, so I thought I’d give it another go. It’s not the most strenuous of classes, but I get it for free on Mondays, so why not?! Zumba is completely and utterly awesome again, as it was before. I now have a loyalty card, so I’m entitled to a free session when I’ve been so many times. Hooray! Savings! I will be Zumba-ing on Thursday and Saturday this week, so really stepping up my exercise from before. I have been trying to find a personal trainer, but they all seem to be booked out for the January ‘let’s get fit‘ phase. I’m going to arrange a gym induction for the fitness centre I work at as well, so I’ll be able to pop into the gym before or after work when I can’t commit to any of my classes.
This week, I don’t have much planned, so I am guaranteed some sort of weight loss next week, if I don’t lose this week. I hope I do though. I want to lose 2lbs this week and I’ll be back to my first stone.
After Weigh In:
I actually lost another 2lbs this week, so I’ve lost a whole stone since joining Weight Watchers!! I am really chuffed with myself, although it has taken me a year… It has spurred me on to do my next stone a lot quicker, which I’m sure is possible if I take my weight loss a whole bunch more seriously than last year, which I generally am doing! Hooray!!
Obstacles for this week:
- #ZOMGbloggersbash – my first ever blogging event!! I am so excited!! I’m just going to avoid any food and drink that’ll be there on the night and keep talking to people to take my mind off! Haha.
- No work at the weekend = boredom eating. I think Jay and I should probably arrange to do something this weekend to stop us from sitting there, eating chocolate and slobbing out. I have asked if he wants to go to Ikea, so that’s something we’re going to do, to sort out our home a little better. We might take Ozzy for a massive long walk as well, to kill some time and burn some calories.
Other than that, I’ll be sticking to eating well and Zumba-ing 3 times a week and Pilates once a week. Fingers crossed I’ll still be on a roll next week with all this weight pouring off of me and I’ll be another stone lighter in no time :)
If you’re losing weight this year, how did you do this week?
