Have you found anything difficult this week?

This week has been terrible for me in terms of evening meals and getting to the gym.  On Monday/Tuesday I felt exhausted and due to the effects of Slendertoxtea (which I blogged about here), I didn’t make it to the gym.  Thankfully my pictures don’t look as bad as I thought they might, but still not as good as last week.


On Sunday I was in the zone and made it to the gym, I had to pop to the loo part way through due to the Slendertoxtea, which wasn’t ideal.  I focussed on cardio and my legs.  I was really looking forward to my Zumba class on Tuesday night, but I couldn’t face it, having had an upset stomach and a headache.  On Thursday I forced myself to get to the gym, I didn’t have long as Andrew was coming to pick me up, so I did half an hour on the cross trainer and some stretching.  That was my last session to the gym this week, so I managed 2 times, out of my goal of 4.  Not great.


My days have been brilliant; I’ve had my diet protein shake for breakfast, then my homemade lentil soup for lunch every day.  I treated myself to some crisps on Friday lunch.  My evening meals have been pretty rubbish;

Monday – Sausage & Mash
Tuesday – Tuna Pasta
Wednesday – ‘Fry Up’ (cooked in oven)
Thursday – Chicken and salad
Friday – McDonalds
All I’ve had Saturday is a burrito from a place in town…
I haven’t been controlling my portions as well this week too, so this is something I need to re-think.

Weigh In

I weighed myself as soon as I woke up Saturday morning and my weigh was 8 stone 12.5, I’m actually surprised it wasn’t a bigger gain, as I haven’t worked out as much.

The Next Week

I’ve stopped the tea detox, and I will be in the gym this Sunday for my first session of the week.  I will be making sure we eat more healthy in the evenings and I will be controlling my portions.
