Week 3, now this week was very challenging.... old habits crept in on the run up to the holiday. A few failed fasts again thanks to cake at a children's birthday party that I couldn't say no to. We also treated ourselves to a take away, and as my stomach has shrunk, I couldn't eat my main after my starter, and instead had it the next day, trying to fit 2 fasts into 4 days is tough. Life gets in the way. I also enjoyed myself on the few days I was away, and didn't watch what I was eating. Yes, fish and chips was on the menu, along with crisps, cakes and biscuits... we were on holiday after all. I also reduced my water intake as we were out and about, and long car journeys, a toilet stop wasn't always convenient.
So after stepping on the scales on my weigh day (Thursday) the morning after getting back, retaining water, and lack of sleep, I was pleased to see just a 1Ib gain.
Im not going to beat myself up. It still keeps me in my 1Ib a week goal... JUST... I need to be back on the ball now, and keep to my planned fast days.
As I am writing this im half way through week 4, and I am confident... week 4 will talk about the Jillian Michaels (From 30 day shred, and Britain's biggest Looser) seminar I went to on Thursday night, as well as the chance to try out a SlimPod. These sound very interesting, and will be introduced half way through week 4... so lots going on...
