Health and Weight Loss Tips 29

/

/ by
Not much has happened since last week, I walked LP to school on Thursday and my legs complained the whole time. 

11st 6.7lbs

54, 016 steps



So the weight is going on and the steps aren't nearly enough to fight the extra food I've been eating. Not good. I can feel it in myself too, I don't have as much energy at the moment. It could be the come-down after the holiday and the miserable weather but I think it's more to do with doing no exercise.

I'm finding it really hard to motivate myself. The fridge is full of chocolate, the Hubby bought lots of sweets from Asda the other day, and I keep craving crisps. 

Here's the thing though, I can see my weight slowly increasing and the closer it gets to 12st the more I cringe. I can't let myself get there again, I've worked so hard to lose the majority of the weight and to gain it again would be so depressing. 

I'm going to start cutting my portion sizes again, not drastically to start with but if I do that (and cut out eating crisps) then I might make a dent. 

Tip: Pay attention to that nagging voice


We all talk about that voice inside our head telling us we're not good enough and most of the time it's okay to ignore it. In fact I champion ignoring it when it's criticising you but when it's nagging you to get back to the exercise, and you agree, it's probably time to listen. 

That voice has been telling me to cut out eating crisps. It's been yelling at me every time I much on a bar of chocolate. I know it's right, I'm doing no exercise so I can't justify eating all the goodies. I'm going to take my own advice and listen to that nagging voice. 

It's time to get my weight gain under control.

  1. ah good luck lovely. I reckon just break off a few squares of chocolate every night and put the rest away so you are not depriving yourself. It must be hard to exercise now as it is getting so dark and cold! Just once of twice a week will help though!! xx #bloggingtojogging

  5. Good luck! Chocolate is my biggest weakness, but I quite like Sarah's advice above as I definitely find having a little occasionally stops me feeling deprived but doesn't contribute a worrying number of calories overall. Hope you conga balence that works for you #fridayfitness

  6. Sorry to hear you have slipped a bit, but I think what is vital is that you know it! I have been training hard this summer as will be running the Venice marathon next month, but otherwise always slip every summer too and just enjoy it. Now with kids back to school it's the best time to get on track. I love crisps and chocolate, but you know what? You would not find a pack in my house! That way I only have crisps when I really know I can have them, like after a good workout, and not in the evening! Good luck and thanks for linking #FitnessTuesday again Hope to see some positive results next week YOU CAN DO IT!

    1. Thank you Mirka! I'm fighting through the chocolate and crisps searching for my will-power. I know I'll find it sooner or later. And actually I've been reading Women's Health magazine and that's helped a little. Thank you for the encouragement though, it's invaluable at a time like this. :)
