I’m going to be honest upfront and say that the healthy eating regime hasn’t been at the forefront of my mind this last week.
But I’m proud of myself, we’ve had a very stressful few days personally, and it culminated in me having a panic attack on Monday evening. This was quite (okay, very) scary until I remembered reading about them and I recalled a couple of tips (post about the symptoms here)..
The “old” J would have dived into the sweetie jar, anything to make her feel better. The “new” J calmed down, grateful that it had passed and that her children hasn’t seen it, had a bath and went to bed!
So, whilst I haven’t been rigidly sticking to my tried and trusted regime, I haven’t been over-indulging either and the scales said…I’d lost another 2lbs, bringing my total so far this year to 13lbs, a lb short of a stone which, hopefully I’ll break through next week.
I haven’t had my Curves assessment yet, I’ve had to move it to the week after half term. I know once I get past the initial “ohmigod, this woman is measuring everything” and once I’m in a routine of going, I’ll enjoy it and reap the benefits.
My tips for this week:
Believe in yourself and visualise a piece of clothing that you haven’t been able to wear for a while. For me, it’s a Karen Millen strappy green dress with beading and a flamenco-type hemline. I don’t know when I’ll be able to wear it and look half-decent but once I can, there will be pictures.
Speaking of pictures, I’ve been taking a side-view and frontal picture every week since January, trying to hopefully see a difference, this week I think I could. That’s encouraging and motivation in itself.
Going to end on a funny note today, I was looking for a birthday card for someone and found this, so funny!
Looking forward to reading how everyone else has got on this week, onwards and downwards (scales wise)! Jx
