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
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
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.
