Every day for the last three weeks I could have happily curled up for a very long afternoon nap. In fact most days I did. Last night I stayed up as late as I could, and do you think I could get to sleep this afternoon? Nope, not a chance. I know I need to have sleep, but my brain just isn’t having any of it. Typical.
Maybe it’s because I’m a bit fired up now about continuing on my Slimming World journey (for want of a better word) and even though I’ve tried to clear my mind enough for me to doze off, all I can think of is making plans. I’ve decided that each Tuesday, after I’ve weighed in, I’ll update the blog with the results and post my goals for the coming week. That way I’m accountable and it’s easy to look back on them and see how I’ve done.
This week marks my 58th week as a Slimming World member. I suppose I can’t claim that I’ve been following the plan for 58 weeks, because as you know there have been many slip ups along the way. But that’s 58 weeks without giving up. I’m pretty sure that’s a record for me.
I did not get the spectacular loss I wanted, but given that I did put in a lot of hard work the majority of the week, I believe I got the loss I deserved. I lost 3.5 lbs making my total loss 5st 6lbs, with a current weight of 15st 12lbs. I’m back in the 15’s at least! Next stop, I want my 5 1/2 stone award back, and I’m going to try to get that next Tuesday. We’ll see!
So here are my goals:
- Stay on plan for 7 consecutive days
- Do at least 4 sessions on the exercise bike
- Catch up with watching my (horribly neglected) YouTube subscriptions
- Update my equally neglected YouTube channel
- Stay positive!
- NO DAILY WEIGHING
Number 6 is the most important, not because I’ve been letting daily weigh-ins affect my mood or anything, but because I want that excitement (and not a small amount of fear) back that I used to get when I weighed in. I’ve forgotten in recent weeks how much of a motivator that was for me.
There we go, there are some things for me to be getting on with.
I’ll keep it short and sweet today, quite simply because there’s not much else to say!
