I’ve been doing this for ten weeks now, and on my sugar-free journey for ten weeks.
The last couple of weeks have been bonkers. My routine has gone out the window and I’ve barely been home during the day to work – which has meant I’ve been working in the evenings, and now I stop to think about it, I can’t remember the last time I ate a proper meal! Instead I’ve been snacking on crackers and crisps and random bits and bobs here and there, too pushed for time to stop and make a proper meal for myself. The last few days I’ve felt quite ill as well, which hasn’t helped with the desire to spend time standing up in the kitchen. I’ve also not managed to record my food on my New Me profile – I think because I was out and about all over the place and grabbing food where I could.
Goal for last week
Last week’s goal was to get back into everything… that’s not really happened!
Goal for this week
This week’s goal is to find a way to work my food and exercise around being busy. I don’t want my work to slow down – so I need to be more organised with my food and exercise, or it’s just not going to happen!
I think I managed more than 10,000 steps about twice last week, which is a bit rubbish. I’m visiting a few clients this week so hoping (weather permitting) I can manage to walk to them and get some more steps in!
Despite not really paying much attention, I’ve done okay. I’m still eating a little sugar here and there, on the understanding that once a certain thing is finished, we won’t buy more. This week saw the end of the tomato ketchup, which I know will be hard for S to deal with. On days when I’ve eaten tea with S I’ve done okay, but if she’s eaten at nursery or only needs a snack when she gets home, I don’t really bother to cook anything for myself in the evening. Now the warmer weather is coming (ha) I think I’m just going to fill the fridge with loads of salad things and have salad whenever possible.

Wow, two pounds off! I am genuinely surprised by this, and it’s really made me feel moremotivated to get myself back on track.
Looking back at the photo I posted at the beginning of March, I do think I look a little better today:
Since I re-started my weight loss efforts, I’ve lost 9 lbs and a total of eleven inches over all. My hernia is bothering me less, and several people have commented that I’ve lost weight and my skin looks better so I’m happy with that. I still have a way to go though. There are seven weeks until Brit Mums Live, and I want to feel that I look good when I arrive there.
