There we go it’s on. So hears what I know. When we want to achieve something, we need to be committed to it and focus on it.
I’m going to be completely honest, whilst I definitely do want to lose weight I don’t make it a priority in my life.
I skip the walks, I eat… well loads of stuff I know won’t help me lose weight and I skip doing the mindset work I recommend and know works wonders.
So what to do.
I know through the various weight loss groups I’ve been a part of in the past that writing things down is really beneficial and I know certainly for me, being accountable is very important.
So starting tomorrow, I’m going to be sharing a daily diary here on the blog. I may need to join a few posts up now and then when I’m busy busy, but I’ll get on here as much as possible and just share what’s going on.
I don’t know whether you’ll read my posts. I’ll probably be writing to myself. I really don’t know how this is going to go.
All the blog training I’ve received says I should focus on the reader and if you’re here reading this post. I SO, SOOO want to support you in any way I can. But right now I need this to be about me. I want to be completely honest and open with you all and I really hope that by opening up in this way and sharing my journey, I hope in some way this will help you.
As for today, I got up and had to take cakes that my amazing mum had made to a church sale (she’s gone to London for the day so couldn’t do it). Of course whilst I was there I wanted to support the event, so I had a cup of tea and a cake. And I bought a portion of trifle to take home. Later my sister and niece came over and we had more cake, crisps and this evening I’ve had a chocolate bar. So food wise today has been a complete disaster.
I haven’t had my pedometer on today but I’d guess I’ve done around 5000 steps today, so again not a great day.
You can really see why I want to do something different.
One of the things I know has played a part in my over-eating over the past week is that I am super tired. So even though it’s a Saturday night and I can if I want, have a long lie in tomorrow. Instead, though I’m going to head off to bed early and hopefully catch up on my sleep. I was going to do a car boot sale tomorrow morning but I’ve decided to skip it this week and be able to sleep past 6.15am. I really just want to wake up when my body is ready rather than to an alarm.
My next weight goal
Now if you’ve been following for a while, you’ll know that I’m not a fan of the scales. However, I do feel that I need a measurable goal. So my next weight loss goal is 11 stone.
I’ve just got on the scales (please keep in mind it’s 10pm, so I will be a bit heavier than when I would normally weigh myself) and I’m 12.2 stone. I have to say whilst I’m not pleased with this, I was probably expecting it to be a bit higher based on my lower levels of activity recently and my eating rubbish.
Okay, I’ll say “Goodnight” and catch up again tomorrow.
Best wishes always
Please excuse any typo’s. I did do a quick check. If you spot anything let me know but my priority today wa to just get this post out and make my commitment.
