12th December 2013
There are no good days and there are no bad days. There are just days. How you feel about them is entirely up to you.
On a positive note, 2lb off yesterday at my weigh in, of course I wanted more! I’m such a member and yes I know 2lb is fab but I’m greedy, that’s why I joined Weight Watchers, I want MORE of everything, always :). I sulked for a while, especially as my bestie lost 4.5lb, I really am a nightmare member. I’m over it now though, I realised 2lb is fabulous, especially when I think about what I’ve managed to eat/drink and enjoy.
It took all my strength to drive past the KFC on the way home but I did it because I realised I wanted another weight loss more, I’m planning on enjoying Christmas so if I can lose another 1 or 2lb next week then I’ll be able to and come back in January ready to lose and get back to my goal.
I felt ravenous when I got home yesterday so I made myself a huge tea of tuna steak, brown rice and asparagus, all filling & healthy foods and I was pleased that there was too much, I couldn’t finish the plate, so it shows if you eat the best foods, it does balance out your appetite.
I realised yesterday cold food at lunchtime does not work for me, it left me wanting all day, so I need to make so zero soups, get the warmth in my day for sure.
I was rushed yesterday but managed to make a cottage pie in the end which I can eat today to save me cooking, for the topping I mixed carrot, butternut squash and potato to make it go further, so that the moment they’re 8pp each and I could add a couple of ProPoints of cheese if I want to, I shall see.
I’m so proud of my bestie with her 4.5lb loss this week, even though I snarled at her in the meeting ;), she’s had a really difficult week from a ‘life’ point of view, she’s also had to eat out a few times because of Christmas get-togethers and still managed to stay on track, now that’s impressive!
I said to someone last week, “when it’s important enough to you, you’ll find the time”, and it’s true, I could’ve so easily not gone yesterday but it’s important to me right now not to continue to gain, I want to lose weight and I want to be healthy.
I know Christmas is on its way but I’m not going to go crazy, I shall enjoy it and have a bit of what I fancy, however I looked at my weight loss last December yesterday and I only gained 4lb over Christmas, I can live with that, it’ll be even better if I’ve lost it before I go away!
I am going to do my shopping, rather than have it delivered for Christmas, but I’ve decided I’m going to make a meal planner so that I don’t get ridiculous with what goes in the trolley! And I will still mostly buy filling and healthy foods, scattered with a sprinkling of cheeses and desserts! These time next week I’m gonna be really excited as it’ll be my last day at work for 2013, as much as I love my job, I’m really looking forward to a break – bring on Christmas I say – ho ho ho.
Have a great day, I’ve already decided today is going to be a GOOD DAY! I’m going to Eat Gorgeous & BeYOUtiful, what are you intentions?
