Due to my week long dedication to Motherhood last week I didn't get to undertake my normal posts, so I find myself now trying to recall the last two weeks with regard to my Healthy Eating Challenge.
Week two is one I like to remember. I stuck studiously to my calorie allowance. I carefully selected meals packed full of vegetables and lower on carbs. I got out running. The result, at my Friday morning weigh in, I had lost 4lb. Thrilled was the order of the day.
Week three however has been what I can only class as an epic fail. Starting with Duckling No.2 birthday cake and ending up with Pringles being eaten half a pot at a time and raisin club biscuits devoured mid-afternoon. The arctic style weather has seen me hibernating indoors with not a running date in sight. My weigh in isn't until Friday but I am expecting to have regained the 4lb lost last week.
However, I am going to remember that I did lose that 4lb, so I am more than capable and falling off the wagon means you hop right back on. In fairness it has been a tough week in general and my energies have been spent elsewhere rather than focusing on what I should and shouldn't be eating however I realise that I do have the ability to take back control and that is what I intend to do.
What have I learnt from this. Do NOT stop using My Fitness Pal - it definitely was keeping me on the straight and narrow!
I am linking this post up with Kate at The Naked Mum for #Wobbles Wednesday. A linky supporting all those on a weight loss journey.
