Im getting very slow with updating my journey. Tomorrow will be the start of my week 8, so thought I had better update my week 6, before too much time passes, and I just stop. I don't want to stop, no matter how long this journey takes. Nor, if no one reads these updates. Its more really for ME. Time for me to reflect on the week, and how im going to go into the next week.
After the gain in week 5, I was determined to get it off the following week. And I happy to announce my weight loss this week....
It is coming off. It is still more then my 1Ib a week goal, so I am happy. I used to be able to do this amount in a month or less, but its true, the older you get, the harder it is too loose, especially with all the yo-yo dieting I've put my body through over the years.
Going into week 8, im not hope full. Well I will write up a week 7 summary as its almost done. I've enjoyed a lovely but CALORIFIC meal out with the hubby for valentines, which never happens usually as we have the girlies, but as the in-laws kindly offered to babysit, we were not going to refuse.
I had a little scare during the week, and further tests being done to rule out Cancer, so typically I turned to wine. I've had several bottles this week, and it has helped me relax.
I stopped listening to my Slimpod for a few days, and I think some of the unhealthy habits of comfort food is creeping back in as a result. It is also half term week, and all rolled in with Daddy going away for work for his 6 monthly big test, which also means on the run-up, entertaining the kids out of the house. Stressful, and tiring are the two words that sums it up perfectly. I know I am making excuses, but basically, I have been unable to complete 1 fast this week, et alone 2, for one thing or another. Therefore, im making the conscious effort NOT to weigh in for week 7, and go into week 8, as a maintain in my head, so I can refocus, and start the week not on a negative.
I have the extra tests next week to clear up the cancer scare, to say im petrified, would be correct. But I also know many people that have had this extra test, and have come out clear. Its hard to take the horror stories like Jade Goodys out of your head, especially when you have little ones. Its still unpleasant to have to wait.
They wanted me in this week for the test, but with both girls on my own, its impossible, so have to wait another week. Im trying to stay clear of the wine, which can only help as I go into week 8. I am also going to try and do a 4:3 this coming week to help counteract the bad calories.
On a positive note, we have been doing a lot more walking. Yeay!!!
