Weigh in, saturday, and I lost 3lb, total weight loss now 26lbs, So why was I disheartened? I am not naive in thinking it will come off overnight, yet I left WW feeling tearful! Note to self; get a grip!
I gave into alcohol yesterday, a bottle of wine, I had not had a drink for a week (no, I don’t have a problem, really haha) I plan to refrain from alcohol in the week and treat myself on a Saturday evening (unless, of course, it is a special occasion). I love vodka, beer and wine, however, wine equates to 21 WW pro points, per bottle and to be honest it is usually a bottle; beer, 6 pro pints per bottle and vodka, 1 WW pro point per measure. No brainer, wine and beer are being kicked to the kerb, vodka all the way 🙂 In moderation, of course.
Swimming, I am planning to go a least three times this week, I am actually enjoying the freedom of the water. I have asked the question, is it better to increase distance or swim faster, as I thought, distance is the key. As I feel confident in swimming 40 lengths, I aim to increase this weekly, rather than each session. As the gym goes, I haven’t stepped into it yet! All in good time, she says!
I have mentioned ‘Compassionate mind’ in previous blogs and I am trying to continue with this daily, not always easy. The ‘Happiness project’ book, haven’t read for over a week, this book worm needs to get back to worming. The online course, need to start. I will achieve one of these this week, which is a step in the right direction.
On Facebook, there is a small group of us WW peeps that have set a goal for January, of a three stone weight loss, starting this week. Therefore, I can only count the 3lb loss (so far)…. 39lb to go, then I am sure we will set another challenge for ourselves.
