Week 30: weigh in update

Brilliant news from weigh in this week as I lost 1lb bringing my total loss to 50lb exactly!  I was a tad concerned I might have blown it after my piggy style banquet last Friday of Pizza Express and Krispy Kreme donuts but looks like the all the exercise I did over the last few days has helped my cause. 

So that’s 50lb off in 30 weeks. Not so bad eh? I am really pleased that I’ve managed to get there and I think it’s because I am so focused on losing weight now if I slip up I actually feel guilty about it. I have 2lb to lose before I fall into the next stone bracket so would like to achieve that as soon as possible and have 6lb to lose to reach my 4 stone total loss target. Both of which I would love to achieve by the end of August but realistically I’ve got my holiday coming up and as long as I don’t go mad, I think I’ll achieve the 2lb loss but 6lb is a bit ambitious!

I’m pleased that by the weekend I should be able to start cooking again. The fitters finished the majority of the kitchen off yesterday with just the plumbing to finish today. Hopefully this evening we will have running hot water, be able to use the dishwasher and the washing machine! Hoorah!

I’m not going to aquafit tonight as I’m hoping to be able to put the contents of the kitchen away and get a head start on the cleaning. Cleaning surely should count as exercise. I’ll be up and down the stairs so many times the pedometer will hopefully be in double activity points. Will hopefully uploads some pics of the new kitchen by the weekend! Exciting {sig}
