Week 11

0.5 lbs off peeps! Was surprised by it. It took so long to lose the last 2 lbs that I didn’t expect another loss (no matter how small) so soon after. So that was a happy surprise. Once again I’ve been gyming. Tried to structure my workouts a bit more. Based on a 5 day…

Week 10

I finally lost weight! 2 lbs off! Brings me to 15 stone 2 lbs. Have come to the conclusion however that whilst I still am trying to lose weight, it will be a bi-product of my new healthier lifestyle. Weight-loss will NOT mean that I am cutting out carbs or only eating white meat. I…

Week 9

And what a week it’s been… exercise wise! I know, right? So I’ve been going to the gym now most days for the last few weeks. Really back in the zone and loving it. Feeling great and actually have upped my game. A few evenings ago I was alone at the gym. It was about…

Weeks 7 & 8

So I missed Week 7. Apologies. I was busy eating everything in sight and not exercising. #Lostit Week 8 however, Week 8 is one I am proud of. I have been gym-ing it and have been My Fitness Pal-ing my food intake. I am feeling positive. I am feeling in the zone. I am feeling…

Week 6Β 

This week has been all about work.  Literally. I haven’t had a day off since last Sunday, and I don’t have a day off until this Thursday. That’s 10 shifts; long and challenging shifts too.  The shop is looking great. The team really pulled together.  But the diet… Eek.  I’ve been putting everything into My…

Week 5

It’s been an exhausting one. We have been in Swansea training this week and it’s amazing what a difference it makes to have to commute to work. Day 1 Day 2  Day 3 Day 4 It has not been a good food week. It’s been a week of Costa’s. I’ve been imputing my food into…

Week 4

What a week it’s been! Started with the clearing out of the shop ready for the refit. Also we got treated to a meal by our boss Simon. We went to the Beefeater. Would’ve been rude to say no. Although I did just about miss the Pop-bullet. I actually ordered Diet Coke but then quickly…

Week 3

Weigh day was yesterday. I weighed. I gained 2 lbs. I wasn’t happy. I know what happened. Despite my efforts at the gym (which I’m quite pleased with I must say) I over indulged in the food department. The meals were good: Steak doused in lemon juice with mash, green beans, spinach and some pepper…

Week 2

This week has been all about the kitchen. I’ve been researching recipes to move my cooking into new and exciting places. Mostly aided by the queen of my kitchen (no, not me)… Simply Nigella is a great book. I do love Nigella and of course I cook from her books. But they are also a…

Week 1

We are 1 week in people! We have been social… Lads night out. Went to see Star Wars again. Just as awesome 2nd time around. We are also all on a bit of a health kick. Which is a great motivator! Everyone around me seems to have joined a gym or has started a new…

Beginning Again

It’s a new year. A new start. A clean slate. The problem with January is that it actually comes with just as much expectation as December does. But December has the jewel that is Christmas; a festive climax which all of us anticipate. Feasts and fairy lights. Presents and parties. Eating and enjoying. But January,…
