Where to start this week? I had a focused and 'calorie counted' five days, allowing myself a night off on Friday night to hit up date night with the boy. If you can't treat yourself on date night, well, then life's not worth living.
I then did LOTS of walking on Saturday...shopping counts as walking, right? No, but really, I did do a lot of walking, and I was feeling quite proud of myself, but then Saturday night happened, and all I can say is...
Morrison's Toffee Bites have got a lot to answer for!
Have you ever had a Morrison's Toffee Bite? Well if you too are trying to stick to a healthy diet then I suggest you stay well away. I'm too ashamed to admit in a public forum how many of these I ate, but at 90 calories a pop...it ain't gonna be pretty.
And they are probably the sole reason why I still haven't shifted that extra pound and a half.
So this week I need to address two main issues:
1. Exercise, Exercise, Exercise - I wouldn't be sat here feeling so guilty about those toffee bites if I'd just get off my butt and move.
2. Willpower - I do not seem to be able to maintain any once I've had a drink. I know most people suggest I shouldn't be drinking at all when I'm trying to be healthy, but come Friday night, a glass of wine is well needed. And this love affair is never going to end.
That's two months of my health kick I've now completed, and at half a stone weight-loss and one or two hiccups (read - over indulgences) I guess I can't complain.
Anyone else struggling to get over a hurdle? What do you do to keep you motivated?
I'm off now to do my second blogilates session, lets hope this is the start of something new!
