This week started so very well mentally, with last weeks 5lb loss I was really excited that I just might achieve my long term goal at becoming fit and shedding the lbs
Around halfway through my week I had the biggest craving for stodge and fat and could have quite happily destroyed anyone in my way on the way to the chip shop.
Thankfully with some talking to Ollie I was persuaded to treat myself on a smaller scale and to stop thinking so much about the calories and so I went for fish fingers, chips and beans instead, even though this took me over my pre planned 12o0 calories for the day.
Obviously this is not ideal, however it certainly was better than consuming hundreds of calories over my target.
The following 2 days were followed by a total lack of effort and a whole heap of complacency and thats when it hit that actually that is half my battle … I know I can do this but I become complacent instead of remaining focused.
So with the last few days of the week before weigh in I have got back on plan and on target and I am so thrilled to report that I have lost:
However what I have really taken away from this week is that complacency is a dangerous thing and I need to make sure I plan my eating in a more military way.
I have also realised this week that its ok to sometimes drop the ball and making wise choices while you drop it i.e for me this week oven chips and fish fingers as opposed to a dirty great big kabab …. obviously neither are amazingly great while trying to loose weight but making the wiser of the two choices has made me appreciate the effect those choices have!
