Christmas Challenge: Weigh In 9

Sorry for the late update but the flu hit this week and absolutely knocked me for six. I even had to miss a day of work which was not fun! So have been a bit behind in general this week. Also I can't believe we are at week 9 already, exactly 5 weeks to Christmas! I was down 1.5lbs this week which brings me up to exactly 9lbs in 9 weeks, right on track. 5 weeks and 5 pounds to get back to goal.

Unfortunately being sick has meant this week my routine has gone out the window and I am  not very optimistic about a good result on Sunday. Not going to make excuses, I was organised this week but I felt sorry for myself and gave into my cravings more often than I should have.  In my defense I haven't totally lost the run of myself, and most of my meals have been on track, I've just had the odd bad meal and one too many treats. I also haven't tracked so would be most likely well over my propoints. I am owning it and going to pull it back tomorrow and see if I can do any damage control!

Keeping it short this week, have a bit of a surprise coming tomorrow, but will reveal more then!

Christmas Challenge: Weigh In 8

It actually feels like only yesterday I was writing last weeks blog post, but its been a crazy week! As suspected I gained a little this week...1.5lbs to  be exact. I was expecting it so I'm not disappointed but I'm finding it hard to focus this week to make sure it comes back down. I am trying not to dwell on it and just get my head down and back in the game and I am home for a good result this week. The weeks are flying by and there are now only 7 weigh ins left until Christmas! I have no idea if I can make it back to goal but I am more focused than ever!

Christmas Challenge: Weigh In 7

I've had a bit of a meh week, the weather has well and truly turned and the winter blues are setting in. I  am not a fan of winter. I hate being cold, I never seem to find a happy medium with winter clothing. I either over dress and end up overheating, or I don't wear enough and am miserable and cold. It may seem a little off the point, but I find it really hard to stay on plan at times like this. I am absolutely an emotional eater, and so when I feel down I want to feed my emotions with 'nice' food. I try to recognise it and readjust my expectations of what constitutes 'nice' food. Nice food is anything that tastes good, I eat nice food all the time, in fact when I am 100% on track my food can be nicer as I am a little more experimental with my food.
