This week was fairly disorganised, though I did manage to fit in an Ocado delivery so that there was sensible food in the house! Going to Brit Mums Live means my eating has been a little patchy over the last couple of days, but I’ve done a lot of walking!

Goal for last week

My goal for last week was to get more fruit and vege into my diet. I did manage this, but fairly minimally. I think I managed it more with S than myself to be honest! I bought loads of veggies and fruit and did eat more than the previous few weeks… just!

Goal for this week

This week I am super busy, with lots of deadlines and a trip to London as well. My goal is really just not to fall into a pit of chocolate and drown if I’m honest!


This week I actually did a lot of walking. I walked to the big out of town Waitrose twice, as well as trawling around town more than usual. On Friday I went to London and my Google Maps broke so I spent more time than strictly necessary wandering up and down the road looking for my hotel, before checking in and walking straight back to join Brit Mums Live. After the BiBs of course there was a walk to Wagamammas for food, and then another longer-than-necessary walk to my hotel. On Saturday there was more walking, followed by dragging my case and goodie bag around the Underground stations and home. I have biceps like Popeye right now!


I’ve eaten more sugar this week than I would have liked. With the warm weather it’s just tempting to eat ice cream and lollipops all the time. On Friday with the trip to Brit Mums being over lunch time, I ended up eating rubbish.

Weight & Measurements

Weight: 165lb – one pound off!
Neck: 14″ same as last week
Bust: 37″ – half an inch on
Waist: 35″ – same as last week
Hips: 38″ – same as last week
R&L Thigh: 23″/23″ Same as last week
R&L Calf: 14.5″/14.5″ Same as last week

Hmm. At this point I feel like I’m doing that thing where the same pound and the same couple of inches are just going on and off, on and off. I need to get serious about cutting out the sugar and doing this properly!

I wish I could give up sugar, keep going, you’ll get there.

I am losing and gaining the same 4lbs all of the time. It’s like Groundhog Day! I’m not sure what will make “the difference”. At the moment I don’t have a specific goal like a dress to slim into or a holiday.

Good Luck for this week.

I had that trouble (same lbs on and off) a while back. What got my weight loss going was an app. It sounds like you’ve been very busy lately though and I think you can give yourself a break about that. You can’t be good all the time. Good luck for this week. xx

    Thanks Morgan, I think I just need to keep reminding myself of what happens when I eat the foods I know aren’t so great for me.

Well done on your loss this week chick!! Hope you enjoyed BritMums – you would have done a hell of a lot of walking around – so jealous of everyone who attended!

You can do this, you know you can! Just keep up the hard work and remember to eat to make sure your metabolism doesn’t ground to a stand still

1lb off is great over BritMums weekend! I barely ate whilst there but have fallen into some seriously bad habits since. Thanks for linking with #BloggingToJogging xx

    Me too! It’s so easy to just slip isn’t it!
