Time to Attend Class

/

/ by
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?

  2. Good luck with your new plan to use a smaller plate. I'm going for moderationish this festive season. I want to enjoy it but not gain too much too.

  4. I think you are right about not leaving it till January, as over Xmas most people pile on weight. I also treat myself over Xmas, but always make sure I do my exercise routines too. I work out throughout the year, and that way maintain my usual weight. Watching what you eat is vital, and the smaller plate sounds like a good plan too. Try to eat more green vegetable and drink lots of water before, while and after you eat. Drinking water really can help when losing weight as it helps you feel fuller and has no calories ;-) Thanks for joing #FitnessTuesday lovely xxx

  5. Hope you are having a good week and your knees are feeling a little better! The small changes will all add up, especially in the countdown to Christmas. I totally agree though, this weather is awful and it just makes you want to comfort eat, which isn't great. Everyone assumes the best time to start is New Year, though there is nothing stopping you now! You will find that motivation again - you have come so far and done so well! I used FlexiSeq Sports gel on my knees and it really does help! Hope you are having a fab week! Sim #WeightLossWednesday xx

    1. Thanks hun. I've always been aware of what I'm doing to myself but doing something about it is a real battle! ;)

  7. Yes, I give myself a smaller plate! I also agree that classes are the way to go for motivation - after a few weeks of regularly attending you will want to go - and have the energy - it's that first step. If it helps pay in advance & you'll be forced to get your money's worth!!! Swimming is a great way to exercise while injured - I hurt my ankles - and was forced into the pool and onto a bike...not my preferred options but stopped me giving up. Good luck & have a lovely Xmas. #BloggingToJogging
