Since returning from our holiday last month, my diet has been very hit and miss. To be fair, I’ve have had lots going on; I’ve been to London for #BML16 and stayed in a lovely hotel, we’ve had a couple of weekends away staying in a further two really lovely hotels, we’ve been to our friends wedding, we’ve reviewed a burger restaurant, we’ve celebrated family birthdays and I have found it really hard to stay on plan.
My week in Fuerteventura was a complete break from Slimming World. I ate, drank and completely switched off from life on the plan. I had every intention of returning to the plan and getting straight back on it but once you’ve had a taste of ice cream and a nice cold fruity Pimms when it’s roasting hot it’s a tough gig to say no and ask for a bottle of water.
I’m really trying to take each day as it comes making wise choices for all my meals. I’m using my syns for treats to get my chocolate / sugary / sweet fix but I know my head hasn’t been completely in the right place for me to focus 100% but I really need to get back into it. I want to start chipping off the weight again and get back to where I was a couple of months ago. I need to get back into it, my wardrobe is full of smaller clothes that luckily at the moment still fit and there is no way I am buying clothes in a bigger size. I need to remember this when I’m searching high and low for a chocolate biscuit in the kitchen!
Thankfully, Olly seems to be sleeping well and we’ve all been able to get several consecutive good nights sleep. There is something magical about a good nights sleep, it makes everything seem a lot more manageable. Sleep brushes off the urge for a piece of chocolate to make me feel better about myself and I feel so much more rational having time to make good decisions instead of snatching food and making the wrong ones.
I’m still following the plan. I start each day with good intentions and I’m really trying to make one good day into one good week. I’m not done yet, I’ve come so far and I’m definitely not going back! Stick with me… x
