My Weight Loss Journey – Putting My Best Foot Forward

Putting My Best Foot ForwardThis week has been all about keeping moving and putting my best foot forward.

My confidence is beginning to lift and I am feeling the effects in everything I have done this week, which is always a bonus!

With 5 weeks to go till the Team Honk baton gets to me and I take on my epic 20 mile sponsored walk/jog/run I have to say positivity is oozing out of every pore .. or should that be sweat?!

With this weeks food I have been a little on the naughty side as I am using Diet Chef to help me get my weight back under control after a 2 stone increase from giving up smoking, but with one of my besties birthdays which did include eating out and 7 hours of pub time …. (please note this is certainly not the norm for me!) followed by a couple of other misdemeanors on the food front it has left me feeling a tad guilty but in honesty I if I dropped off the Diet Chef I soon jumped back on again and It didn’t last long.

In the gym I have really tried to push myself and on one occasion this week I even attended at 7.30 am .. surely that’s dedication?

My calf is feeling so much better too as I now have a calf support to help me with my reoccurring shine splints and to help me stop tearing my calf muscle! Along with some super duper sweat pants that I have been hankering after from SportsShoes.com I am feeling so much better about this journey and I am starting to feel I look better too!

To The Nitty Gritty….

Weight loss this week:   – 1.5 lbs

Inch loss this week:      -1 inch

Total Lost This Year …..

Weight lost this year:  -5.5 lbs

Inch loss this year:   – 3.5 inches

So all in all I am still really really chuffed with this weeks efforts I did over indulge but I did get back on the Diet Chef programme and I did maintain my exercise so all in all it could of been worse but If I really try this week it will be so much better!!

    7 hours in the pub? Blimey. I dread to think what your hangover was like!

    Well done x

  7. Great progress Jaime.

    I don’t think you should punish yourself too much, after all if you don’t have those bad days then you’ll crave them. And those cravings only get worse over time. Believe me I know. Glad to hear you got back on track and well done with the weight loss. Sounds like you’re feeling really good about things and that’s the main thing.
