Well I am very pleased with myself. Over the xmas break I lost 3lbs!!!
Really pleased. There were only a handful of us that lost and I think I lost the most.
I do feel a bit bad for having a Chinese last night, we always have one after weigh in as a treat but feel as thought I shouldn't. Well it's done now anyway. Does anyone else have a treat after weigh in? Do you point it or just have it?
So have lots of motivation now. Key for me is planning meals. This week we have:
Tues- Harissa spiced cod and cous cous (ww recipe)
Wed- Fig & Thyme honey with ricotta and then baked acorn squash (from Miss Dahl's Voluptious Delights)
Thurs- Sausage and butterbean stew
Fri- Chicken and bacon risotto (ww recipe)
Sat- Harissa spiced lamb with cous cous
Sun- Either fish curry or spag bol
Need to plan next weeks meals. Got the new WW Fabulous and filling cookbook last night at my meeting, looks really good but only had a quick glance last night.
If anyone has any nice meals they have can you let me know- always looking for extra ideas and inspiration. And if anyone wants any recipes I mention just shout.
Our leader said something last night that I really took on board. We always seem to say "this is the year for me to be healthy, lose weight" etc. But she said "this is not just a new week, or new year but a new decade". And I don't want to have another decade of being unhealthy so I'm going to keep that in the back of my mind. I want to set a good precedent for my future decades. I'm at the age now where kids are not that far off in the future and I want to be as healthy as I can when we try to get pregnant and also for when we have them. Set a good example, be able to run around with them etc. I don't want to be a mum who is tired all the time and not fit enough to do activities with them. And I want to be able to just be more active, I feel so heavy and weighed down at the moment, not just by my weight but emotionally. I want to feel lighter inside and out and live life to the full.
Sorry bit of a ramble there!!
Hope everyone is ok and not finding it too tough getting back into routines after xmas.
Have a good week x
