Welcome back to #SlimmingSunday, the new weightloss, fitness and healthy lifestyle linky with me, MrsShilts and Michelle from Mummy From The Heart.
Can you believe we’re into April already? Time is slipping through my fingers and it’s a little bit scary as the time is disappearing but my waistline isn’t!
Thank you to those that linked up last week, I’m so pleased people are joining in and taking the time to comment on other peoples posts. It’s great to see that people have the same desires and motivations as me too so we’re really not alone in this at all.
We’ve had a good week on plan, we made a meal plan for the week last weekend and although I didn’t get chance to write a Meal Planning Monday post, the scrap of paper we wrote our list on was firmly stuck on top of the microwave for us to keep an eye on. We have the best intentions and I’ve been staying within my syns allowance (with the exception of yesterday when I went on a spa day with my Mum and Sister and ended up eating a fruit scone with a dollop of cream and jam, feels like confession time!)
I gained 1.5lb last week which I was fully expecting so it wasn’t a shock to the system when I saw it. We went to Aria restaurant at Hyatt Regency Hotel in Birmingham for Mothers Day and it was divine. I’m yet to write about it (I need another 3 days spare in my week) but it was beautiful food and excellent service. I would love to get this extra weight off next week and will try my very best. I’ve been drinking plenty of water throughout the week and I think that’s helped with my skin too.
I have wore my fitbit all week and have been interested to see how little exercise I get when I’m at work. That’s the joy of having a desk job, being glued to your desk and with the printer being in the same office I don’t get chance to move much. The toilets are downstairs though, so with all the water I drink I do make several trips throughout the day. Not surprisingly, on my Friday when I’m not in work and catching up on all the jobs around the house, my step count is much improved. This Friday, I got the step count up to 8694 which I thought was good.
Anyway lots to improve on for next week and I’m hoping that the weather is kind to me and will be sunny and dry so we can get out more. Fingers crossed.
