30 Before I’m 30 – Week 8 Weigh In

I weigh every Tuesday evening and will be posting an update on my blog each week before the weekend is upon us. Here’s my “challenge”

Normally I post this on a Wednesday or Thursday but this week has been so busy with work, home life and so on, and has literally flown by! The bank holiday threw me out too

Exercise wise, we went for a bike ride last week and aside from that there’s not a lot to mention, I injured my leg and the dog injured her paw so walking and running has been limited. I was hoping to have been up and running (excuse the pun) on the weekend though it still didn’t feel right so I have rested it a bit longer

Food wise – it’s great having the hubster on board and has resulted in less bad snacks and better attitudes towards healthy eating in the household

I have 4 more weigh-ins before my 30th (oh my goodness!) so here we go for this week…

This week’s information:

Loss this week: 1.5lbs (whoop!)

Overall loss to date: 9.5lbs

Highs of the previous week: One of my friends who is on her weight loss journey with me and has been since January commenting on my waist size saying it looked visibly thinner (thanks CJ!) Having the girls round was also a blast and I had a great evening laughing with them all

Lows of the previous week: Mine and Lexi’s injuries, and I also lost my voice again. It happens regularly and I just want to crawl up and disappear (felt a little sorry for myself)

Food news: The new magazine came out so we are spending an evening (we are rock and roll!) writing a list of meals we want to try this month. The hubster also cooked a yummy lasagne the other day, he can continue this, a happy wife is a happy life (hehe)

Exercise news (new category!): I put this topic on here and the first week it’s been on I haven’t been able to do much. The good news is we are going cycling and swimming on Sunday and I am revisiting the gym on Saturday morning for an easy session, and then again Monday morning before work. We did go to a local country park on bank holiday Monday for an “adventure walk” and picked up a couple of items to play with which was great fun

Challenges for the week ahead: We are going round a friends house for dinner on Saturday. She’s put a lot of thought into the meal choices and is even doing dessert and custard, so I will once more have another flexible syns day!

Here’s to another week and another loss ahead, I’m happy with a loss, obviously the more the merrier!
