Last week I said that I'm not feeling healthy and I was doing my best to sort that out. That's still true today and I've even begun to think about attending some local exercise classes (if I can find any).
My weight last week: 11st 11.5lbs
My weight this week: 11st 11.6lbs
Steps last week: 42,753
Steps this week: 37,575
That's 0.1lbs on, and a lot less steps. I blame the weather.
With the awful weather, loads of nice food, and the comfort of home it's so easy to sit on my bottom and do nothing. I'm finding it hard to motivate myself to go on the treadmill, even though I used to enjoy it.
I'm wondering if I start attending a class or two, get myself out and DO something, then maybe I'll be more motivated to run too.
Like I said before my knees are an issue at the moment and losing weight will ease it, so that's the priority.
I'm going to try a new technique to trick myself into thinking I'm having a larger meal - smaller plates. Whenever I put out dinner in an evening I give the kids less than me and the Hubby, obviously. The boys have smaller plates and it's easy to give them less, but BP is getting bigger now and wants to eat more. Perhaps what I ought to be doing is letting BP have the bigger plate and I have the smaller one.
I'll try it out and see how I go.
I know the usual trick is to put off losing weight until the new year, after all Christmas is almost upon us and those mince pies won't eat themselves right?
But if I wait then after Christmas I will weigh half a stone more than I do now, perhaps even more.
Instead I'm starting now, I won't deny myself the nice things but I'll be conscious of what I'm eating. Rather than just scoffing everything in sight I'll limit my intake.
How will you handle the weight loss through the Christmas period?
