A theme in my buying behaviour is emerging: Weight. As well as treating myself to a natty set of kitchen scales the other day I replaced my no longer functioning bathroom scales too. I'd been kidding myself for a long time that these were an unnecessary household item but the fact that some of my clothes are tighty-tight persuaded me otherwise.
Gingerly I stepped on them for the first time. Now I knew that enthusiastic crisp eating and a period of inactivity after bouts of physical setbacks in last six months had taken their toll but Holy Crap!!!! I weighed how much! I'm so embarrassed that I'm not going to tell you guys. But obviously something needs to be done.
So last Sunday I recorded my first weigh in and this week I reviewed my progress. It was an active week with lots of walking, cycling and Week 4 of the Couch to 5K running plan. But to balance that out there was a rather enjoyable boozy night out with the girlies where much prosecco and fried food was consumed. Had I done enough to counter this? Yes! Three pounds lost in the first week.
I've set a target weight and a date to reach it. Again it's a hefty amount so I'm loathe to share. But with exercise, sensible eating and not to many blowouts I'm sure I'll reach it. Unless I get to a point where I'm happy with how things are on the slimming journey. I don't want to overdo it now do I?
PS: Oh, the scales in the picture do not depict my actual weight. It's really not as bad as that! xx
