I was a little worried that I had over indulged in the preparation & aftermath of the half marathon last weekend and it would show on the scales. I was pretty happy to see that I had maintained my weight! I reverted this week a little and didn't track a thing all day on Saturday and decided to then write off my weeklies. I went back today and tried to retrospectively track and I definitely went over my weeklies which is not great. I also was planning on heading back to running this weekend, but Saturday got away from me and I woke up on Sunday with one of the worst headaches ever that just did not seem to go away for the whole day and by the end of the day I was sick to my stomach as well. So while I got a fair amount of walking done on Saturday I got absolutely no exercise done on Sunday.

Last week after my fantastic week I was looking forward to my weigh in. I knew I had followed the plan, done plenty of exercise and I was feeling pretty lean. I lost 1lb which I am pretty happy with. I was away on Thursday overnight for work and so my food was all over the place for the day and I did not eat well and it spilled over a bit into the Friday. I decided instead of trying to track SmartPoints, since I had a lot of running to do over the weekend, tracking calories might be a little easier. I did start my carb load on Friday and decided that I needed to eat back most/all of my excercise calories in preparation for the race. I am not sure I am going to have as good a result on the scales this Thursday but to be honest I am not that bothered, I needed the food and wouldn't have changed anything about the weekend.

I know I have been awful at posting recipes. I have been collecting them in my little recipe book for months but things have been so manic for me, I just haven't got myself together to post them. I am finally back into the rhythm of posting my weeklies meal plans I can get back to posting some recipes.

Slipped back to my old ways a little last weekend and I didn't really track anything. I was out for dinner and made the healthiest choices I could, but I drank plenty and fed my hangover the next day. I knew I had done some damage and even though I got myself back on track on Monday, I was not surprised when I saw that I had gained 2lbs when I weighed in on Thursday morning. So I gave myself a bit of a kick in the bum and planned out my bank holiday weekend ensuring I would be able to stay within my weeklies and dailies.

Another week down and despite the crazyness of last weekend, I managed to pull things back and lose 2.5lbs this week. I got a little cocky after my loss and I have to admit I was a little lax at the weekend. I was off work from Thursday through to Sunday and I wasn't as good at tracking as I should have been and probably had one too many treats. I did a fair amount of exercise and have been back at it properly since yesterday so hopefully I have not done too much damage....though I need to really cop on to myself a bit!
