Weigh In 25

I did it. I got my 5th silver 7. I was not expecting a 2lb loss this week. I knew I had been good but I had eaten every single weekly.

Weigh In 24

This update is a little bit late - life got in the way of my blogging as I had a few busy evenings last night. But I was a little bit worried about my WI, I had used nearly all my weeklies and done my usual exercise - but since I had lost so much the week before I wasn't sure if I would see the results. Up on the scales I go and down another pound I go. Delighted with it. Am comfortably in the 11's and only 1.5lb from my 5th silver seven. I've had a pretty good week this week, used every single weekly but I've made good choices with what I've used them on for the most part. Also I'm feeling good about myself, which is pretty motivating in itself.

Weigh In 23

I had to weigh in a day late this week. Was out at Blink 182 last night (which was awesome, totally made me feel like I was 16 again - well apart from no longer being able to handle a mosh pit or drunken teenagers). But anyway - after last weeks fiasco I was dreading being weighed this week. My aim was the at least get the 2lbs I gained last week down.

Chocolate Cake with Raspberries

This cake was made for my friends birthday and it is delicious and pretty easy. Well it would have been even easier if I had an electric whisk (I really need to get one of those) but at least my arms got a work out. Ours was a little thin because we decided to make it in a heart shaped cake tin instead of a round one and the heart shape was slightly too big. So here goes the recipe.

Weigh In 22

I am so angry at myself, I'm up 2lbs!! Its the first time I've gained weight since January and its the worst feeling in the world. I mean if I'm honest I deserve it, in the back of my mind I wasn't expecting the best result, a STS or up a half a pound or even a pound, but I didn't expect 2 of them. I guess I had such a great streak I just didn't think it was going to happen. I was very lax with my tracking and had too many treats. 

As angry as I am at myself, in a way its a good thing. Its given  me the kick up the bum I've needed to get me back on track. There have been a few weeks where I was a bit lax about tracking and somehow still managed to lose. So now I know I need to be as serious about this as I was at the start. For this week its no booze for a start. I have nothing planned so I should be able to stay well within  my propoints. I'm also going back to the gym as soon as my muscles recover from the mini marathon on monday. 

In better news, just having the weight off has made a huge difference to my fitness alone. I did the mini marathon and I managed to alternate jogging 1k and walking 1k and had a time of close to 1hr25mins which is way better than I thought I would do. So I am motivated to get back into the exercise I have been talking about for a couple of months now. Hopefully I'll be back next week with better news.
