I feel like I only have to look at a cheeseburger and I gain a kilo
The first 3 days of last week were excellent- my food was perfect and I was walking for an hour every day. I felt great, light and motivated. Then I got lazy, missed a couple of days of walking and thought, meh, I'll start again after the weekend.. that's my downfall. Straight away I got fat and blaoted (it felt like it, anyway) and the scales are going up 2-3 kilos one day, down 1 the next- I have no idea where I'm at to be honest. I really, reallllly need a proper digital scale, I keep forgetting to buy one! I'm sure it will be more accurate than what I have now.
On the positive side, I know that if I eat "normally" or induge a little I bloat really easily and the scales show a higher weight for a day or two, but then when I get ack on track my weight almost instantly goes down.. maybe I just retain when I eat carbs? Which I why I say I only have to look at junk food to get fat
I'm still weighing roughly 3 kilos less than I did before this challenge, so it's not a total loss. I also bought a new supply of shakes to get me back on the wagon.
Having said all that, I am my own worst critic and I tend to sook and get cross at myself when I have a small blow out, so I need to try and remain postive- I magnify every mistake and it's just me being negative- no, I haven't been perfect but oh well. Plus I'm sick! I have a terrible flu and it's got me down in the dumps.
Today I've had- an egg and bacon roll from Subway (naughty!) and almost 2 litres of Lipton ice tea (light, only 2 cals per serve) because I need to keep my fluids up and just feel so thirsty. Dinner will be green soup.
This sunday is DD's first birthday and we're having a party so I know that'll be a write off for me food wise- But I aim to stay on track for the other 6 days, got my shakes and lots of healthy snacks
Thanks for reading if you got this far!
Well done everyone, you all put me to shame!
