Well, I’m one week down… and I was fairly scared to step onto the scales this week if I’m honest!
Goal for last week
Last week’s goal was to cut down my fizzy drink consumption… I did drink a little less, but I’m stil drinking more than I would like, so it’s something to work on.
Goal for this week
This week’s goal is to go to the gym around the corner and sign up! Last week I got as far as emailing them, and they came back and said I don’t need an appointment, and to pop in any time. This is exactly what I didn’t need! It’s easy to put something off when you don’t have an appointment! I need to just take a deep breath and go on in!
My plan was to exercise three times last week.
I actually manged this, which is a nice feeling. I’ve also done a lot of walking, what with one thing and another. I feel more sprightly. I think the good weather has helped!
Next week I intend to exercise three times, but increase the time spent doing so.
Last week my plan was to focus on eating breakfast every day.
I managed it for about two days, and even made a rather suspicious-looking green smoothie… but then it sort of went out the window. I’m going to try again this week, after doing some proper shopping and making sure the cupboards are stocked!

I’m really trying not to be disillusioned by this. The one week I feel like I’ve done well, and I actually put on weight!
I did these measurements last night, after S and I had spent the afternoon at a friend’s house eating roast dinner… so I’m hopeful that accounts for the increase in weight and lack of change in measurements. Still, I didn’t eat a huge amount of food – and I did have an active week.
Still, I’ve no choice but to keep on with this; giving up will only make things worse. Still, this weight loss lark is a lot less easy once you’re over 30, isn’t it!
