This week has been interesting. I’ve not done as much exercise as I would have liked, because I ended up being fairly busy. But my eating has been better, and I’ve cut right back on sugar.
Goal for last week
I did cut right back on my sugar intake. I’m still drinking Coke, but nowhere near as much – and I’m not eating anywhere near as much junk as I was. Having read That Sugar Book, I’ve moved on to Sweet Poison and I’m finding that reading and learning more about sugar and how it works in our bodies is keeping me motivated to steer clear of it.
Goal for this week
This week I intend to completely stop drinking Coke. The only reason I haven’t until now was that I had things going on where I couldn’t afford to be headachey and knackered. I couldn’t do it over the weekend because it’s not fair on S to spend her weekend with a big old grouch who just wants to lay in bed and nurse the mother of all headaches. This week, I need to just get on and do it!
I did do some exercise last week, but nowhere near as much as I would have hoped. I think I did the Davina dvd once, and then did some kettlebell lifting a couple of mornings.
I’m getting better at eating breakfast, and finding that helps with the rest of the day. I think I ate chocolate on one day last week, which is a massive improvement on a normal week. I’ve also done my best to cut out snacking in the evenings – after S goes to bed is the time I’m usually straight into the kitchen trying to find “something nice” to eat. I need to just accept that there is nothing sugary in my kitchen, so there’s no need to go looking for it!

I’m really pleased with this; a good result despite not really doing much in the way of exercise. Since I first re-started my healthy eating/weight loss plan at the beginning of March, I’ve lost 5lbs, and ten inches over all which I’m very pleased about.
I feel like I’ve made a good start on my weight loss – but more importantly, I’ve finally begun to cut sugar out of my diet which feels like a massive positive step.
