Flop; that is what I think of this week. I haven't done badly buy to be honest my head hasn't fully been in the game. I had a little reality shock on Friday when I decided to go through my waredrobe trying on 90% of my clothes and find that A LOT are tight or don't fit. I have got a rid of lots of things and I have kept all my nice clothes which I can aim to get into. It took me nearly 5 hours and it definately has given me a push in the right direction :)
Food: I have had a few naughty treats this week but I have been trying to pick the healthier options for example I went to the cafe with my friend and instead of having a fry up, I had poached egg on toast. Friday night I had a curry with the family and instead of my typical chicken tikka masala, pilau rice and a peshwari naan I opted for a Chicken Bhuna, boiled rice and a plain naan (which I shared with my Dad). I also had a girls night in on Saturday and whilst the wine (calorific) was flowing we snacked on baked crisps, low fat tips and vegatables and having thin crust home cooked pizzas over dominos.
Calorie Target - 1500 per day/ 10,500 for the week.
Calorie Intake - 12, 341 for the week - which means i had an average of 1,700 calories a day which isn't too bad over my target. I tried to balance the bad days with the good ones.
Fitness: Gah I haven't improved from last week and to be honest I have felt like a massive heffer so I couldn't think of anything worst than going to the gym. I know that is sounds silly because if I went to the gym I probably would feel better afterwards. I always find as well there are a lot of slim healthy people at my gym and this can make me feel a little awkward but I need to understand the reason that they are like that is because they are at the gym often. Sounds silly but so true. I have been taking myself out on walks mainly to calm myself down as I have felt a little over stressed this week.
Exercising Target - 3x 1 hour exercise per week
Actual Exercising - 3x half hour power walking sessions (this was more for stress relief to be honest. Oops - still exercise though) and a 20 minute intense Body Conditioning session.
Mood: I have been coming up to my 'time of the month' and I had what felt like a really bad weekend. There is something about me which sometimes makes me worry so much that I either feel sick to my stomach or I feel sorry for myself and demolish most things in sight. Most of you girls will understand the emotions we all get before that time and I am just one of these girls which turn into the cookie monster. As of Monday though I am starting a new full time job, which I am so excited about and hopefully that will put a little more routine in my life and cut the time that I have to worry about little things.
