I have to admit that I am really not feeling the diet love this week. In fact, I have got very angry with it for interferring with my life whilst making it better at the same (I suppose the fact that I am feeling rather annoyed at everything this week doesn’t really help!).
Last Friday, being a snow day, with us all cooped up at home we decided to have a Lord of the Rings marathon. Of course, with films, comes crisps, popcorn and naturally, for the adults, a bottle of wine or two! I think I consumed almost a bottle of wine, my share of the crisps and the popcorn that evening. So guilty was I that, the following day when we continued our marathon film watching, I only had one glass of wine, a small amount of popcorn and just two small Haribo gummy bears – Ross consumed far more wine and food than I. I also have to admit to being rather proud of myself for not joining in with his KFC on Sunday and then Burger King and beers on Monday!
Of course, my care-free Friday cost me. Saturday morning I had gained a pound and then the same the folllowing morning.
For the rest of the week I have been really careful, even refusing just one chocolate minstrel offered to me whilst watching the panto on Wednesday evening! I’ve stuck with coffee, diet coke, water and mainly a protein-filled week.
Once again I have been complimented on my weight-loss and, even the trousers that now fit me again after two years are starting to feel loose – that’s never happened before! One of my friends has even told me NOT to lose anymore weight!
I have also felt annoyed with anything gym-related. For me the gym is the most difficult part of my diet, particularly when I have had a really busy and trying working week. The last thing I want to do is go and exercise. I would rather read some blogs,read a book and have a coffee thanks.
So, imagine my surprise, when I stepped onto the scales yesterday morning to find that I was back down to where I was last Friday. Complete and utter shock. Now I think last weekend my body was saying to me ‘Look what happens if you do things to excess’!!
It’s all about trying to find a fine line between feeling guilty for eating things you shouldn’t and not depriving yourself of a treat now and again. Life is ruddy short enough as it is.
So to this weeks results:
- Last Friday: 149.8lbs
- This Friday: 149.0lbs
- Loss for the week: 0.8lbs
- Total loss so far: 16.4lbs
- Total to go: 4.0lbs
As Ross said to me last night, he is going to look like a complete tool if he loses weight this week! His result? Well he lost another 1.8lbs taking him down to 177lbs. Do I think he is a complete tool? No, not a complete one! I have to say that I am rather envious as I only have to LOOK at some chocolate and I put on a pound!
I have decided that, as I am at home doing my accounts today, that I shall be rewarding myself with a burger! I am sure it will work its way off again in time for next week’s weigh-in.
