Week 3 Weigh In

3rd week on plan, and I lost 1lb this week, taking my total to 10lbs in 3 weeks, which is overall, a good loss. However, I still couldn't help feeling disappointed after all the work I put in this week

I ate all my 33 daily points allowance, only 4 of my 49 weekly allowance, and I also did loooooooooads of exercise, really putting in the effort. So I thought I would have a 2-3lb loss this week.

Right now, im really struggling with the urge to binge. I am fighting it, but I feel like im weakening! Part of doing this entry now is to try and talk myself out of it! I know I dont need to eat anything other the meals I already have planned. Why is this sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo bloody hard?

Lovely Weekend!

The sun has shone all weekend and its been lovely! I played outside with the children yesterday afternoon. Wore myself out bouncing around on the trampoline!!

I went to the cinema last night with Olivia and Elliot, we watched Rio, I thought it was really good! It cured me of my Saturday night binge-fests too. I had a Dr Pepper zero, and no food!

Today, Olivia, Elliot and I went to Ingleton Waterfalls and walked the trail. Ive mentioned it before on here, it is a 8km trail around some waterfalls, with some spectacular views, and hundreds of blinking steps!! The weather was gorgeous, although possibly a little bit too hot for climbing all those steps!

A couple of pics!!

Olivia and Elliot sat on "The Money Tree" - which is a fallen tree upon which lots of people have placed money into the bark. I love
this picture!!

This waterfall is called Thornton Force and is the biggest of the falls. We had our picnic overlooking this.

Elliot is halfway up the steepest climb here, climbing to the top of Thornton Force. This part of the trail is
reeeeeeallllllllly hard!!

This is me, as we start the downward descent, and very relieved I was too. I think this could be Beezley Falls in the background.

So we are shattered but feeling good. AND I have survived a WHOLE weekend without binging!

Stupid Wii Fit!!

Yesterday I went into Bolton (my local town centre), on the bus, for a little walk round. Just as I got there, it came over the radio on the bus that all buses to the town centre had been stopped for the foreseeable future, due to an "incident". It turned out this was a bomb scare, and half the town was cordoned off. So I had a nice surprise walk home (roughly 3.5 miles I think!). Never mind, the thought of racking up activity points kept me going!

I ate really well yesterday, I had toast with peanut butter and banana for breakfast, soup and ryvita for lunch, a huge salad and a WW meal for dinner, and snack wise I had a WW chocolate bar, an apple and after dinner a WW dessert. I ended the day 3 points under my allowance,

Last night I did workout 4 on the ea Active 2 (im really enjoying this!!), and a step class workout too, so about 30 minutes of moderate to high exercise.

I then got on the Wii Fit and had apparently gained 3lbs!!! I have now fallen out with the stupid thing, I dont think I could have gained 3 lbs in 1 day if i'd have gone on the biggest of all binges, so I certainly havent after the day I had yesterday!

Week 2 Weigh In

Weigh day again! Im sure it comes round quicker each week!! I lost half a pound this week.

Its a loss, and half a pound in the correct direction, and it means 9lbs over 2 weeks so all in all I know I should be happy...BUT!!...I exercised my behind off this week! I worked really hard, i've been on the Wii Fit every day, I did an exercise DVD, and i've also followed the ea active 2 planner, so I have done the 3 exercise routines it planned for me, plus one extra just for the hell of it! So, I was kind of hoping for a bit more than half a pound!

Never mind, I shall carry on and it will result in a fab loss next week (pretty please oh god of the weighing scales!!)

The word for today is OUCH! Said every time I move!

I *think* I may have overdone the exercise just a little yesterday! I did the Fat Attack workout. Managed to complete it, and I remembered most of it, despite not having done it for probably 6 years! Just shows how often I used to do it! I used to rewind it and do it again at one time! Dont think i'm quite at that stage yet!

I then decided to have a half hour on the Wii Fit Plus, doing a few lunges and other exercises for legs and hips.

I then bought ea Active 2 for the Wii. It comes with a USB thingy to record all your stats, a heart rate monitor and a leg strap which enables the Wii to read your position. It's very similar to Biggest Loser, but I must admit I found it a lot better than Biggest Loser. I did workout number 1 last night (about 25 minutes high intensity), and then did Workout 2 this morning. I really struggled this morning though, due to my legs aching so much!

I also ordered Just Dance 2 for the Wii, so looking forward to that arriving :)

Grrrr - Again!

Ive eaten too much over the weekend! I really wish I knew why I do it. Eat and Eat and Eat, even though im not hungry and I know I shouldnt be eating.

Anyway! Back on track from today. I dont think i've eaten over my 49 points allowance, although I didnt track everything I ate so I may have done. But I think as long as I stick within my daily points for the rest of the week, and I hammer my activity points then I should be ok come weigh in time, fingers crossed!

Im going to attempt a fitness DVD this morning. I havent done it for years (in fact, the last time I did it, it was on a video rather than DVD, I havent opened it since buying it on DVD!!) Its Rosemary Conley's Fat Attack.

Activity Challenge

Forgot to mention that I managed to do another of the activity challenged mentioned in last weeks class. I put some music on and did some energetic housework! It really livens up the dull task of cleaning!

So I combined 2 challenges, energetic housework and having a boogie!

We have a new leader from next week, her name is Paula, but I didnt really get chance to speak to her and I had to leave before she was introduced to the group. Fingers crossed she can keep us all motivated!

Im still going well on the plan. Was very disappointed yesterday to discover that 1 measly pint of cider has a whopping 7 propoints!! Wont be drinking that again! Good job I only had the one! It was a liquid lunch for me!
