10 Things I’ve Done to Make Me a Loser

What a week it has been. They all seem to fly by at the moment and before I knew it I was staring down at the scales and thinking have I done enough this week. Fortunately I had done enough and to be honest I felt that even if the scales weren’t going to reflect it I was still happy with my week.

1. Added everything I ate and the exercise I did to MyFitnessPal

2. Focused on nutrition and balance

3. Exercised 

4. Documented how I am feeling

5. Let myself eat without guilt

6. Food shopped less

7. Planned my meals

8. Made healthy snacks

9. Didn’t use terms like ‘diet’or ‘cheat days’

10. Listened to my body

Week Overview:

I felt like I could have exercised more but I do plenty of incidental movement and breast feeding helps to chew up the calories. I need to balance out my meals throughout the day so that I’m not opening myself up to binge eating at night. I’m really happy with my relationship with food this week. I even went out for a lovely dinner with a friend on Saturday night and had a smaller portion of cake on Sunday. This has made me feel like I’m not missing out and I’m truly enjoying it when I eat it.

Weight loss this week: 1.3 Kg

Weight loss so far: 3 Kg

I’ll see how I go next week as my body is probably in a bit of shock but I may need to eat a bit more as I’d like to lose between .5-1Kg a week. I’ve done the quick weight loss before and found it’s not sustainable. This is MY YEAR.

Hi! I'm Kate, I hail from Melbourne with my three loves, Willow, Matisse and my husband Dan. I enjoy staying active, attempting to be crafty, discovering new recipes and fun things to do with my daughters. I have found that becoming a mum has tapped in to this raw positive energy that I never knew I had. In this weird new world I live in I've found that I need to look after myself more to keep myself healthy and be a positive role model for the littler ones. Keeping this in mind has kept me on track to create the best me and be a better Mum. Well it's a work in progress but we all need to aspire to something right? I am also a writer, chugging away at that elusive novel but now is the time people. I am writing and you get to hear all about it, just joking, I won't bore you with that. If you want to know where I'm at please feel free to ask it might give me a boot to get me going in my less motivated of moments. I'm passionate about women's rights, equality, children's rights and mental health. I want to say social justice as a whole but it is so broad. I believe we all have the right to be the best that we can. I look forward to getting to know you all and sharing my crazy life.
