Week 4 weigh in and week 5 goals!

So right I officially hates scales and being hungry :(

Weight: 13 Stone 2Lbs (+2lbs)

Oh dear after such a good week I think my naughty weekend caught up with me or the scales are stupidly silly. I really dislike them and I can't seem to get under 13 stone. It's really bothering me

It's weird if I lose weight I'm not hungry and want to exercise. If I put on weight, then I'm just massively hungry and feel extremely demotivated :( It's a cruel world!

Arms: 12.25" (-0.35")
Chest: 34" (-1")
Waist: 31.5" (-0.5")
Stomach: 41.5" (+0.5")
Thighs: 24" (-1")
Calf: 17" (same)

So some are up and some are down. I think my 3 day trial has toned me up a bit. Back on the horse I reckon. However on a bright note, my friend made me look at my beginning measurements from way back when and it turns out I've actually lost a whole 3.5" from my waist. I'm actually quite proud of that :D 

After seeing Erin's picture of herself in a swimsuit I took a better look at myself at Swimming last night and I realised I can see the differences. I may not be brave enough (Erin you are such an inspiration) like Erin but at least I can feel/see the difference. 

Things to discuss and/or consider...

What worked?
I really enjoyed having a gym buddy and going to a new gym. So I think I need to make sure I swap it up a bit. Keep it fresh!

What didn't work?
Having a treat. Apparently I still do not have any self control :(

What can you not wait to do again?
I can't wait to go back to Zumba class. I miss it soooo much!

This week has been a strange week, it started off brilliantly with my 3 day trial. I worked out so much. Then towards the end of the week I was treating myself, not just food treats but material treats and the exercise just tailed off. I need to whip myself back into Gear.

I purchased a new running top that will actually get rid of my sweat when I run :D, a new sports bottle, a new sports bra and some healthy food. I love it all but I think I now need to work hard to pay in exercise for my new stuff. Kind of like a exercise payment system! Copyright !!

In all honesty I've not eaten particularly well today but as we always say to one another 'Tomorrow is a new day".

So I say BRING IT ON!!!

Week 5 Goals

Stop snacking
Feel positive. 
Get back into my exercise routine

Love to you all :D

P.S I created a list of 100 things I want to do before I die. Check it out here!


  1. Considering you gained 2lbs, I think you should be proud of the measurements.

    Loving the attitude: BRING IT ON!!! Hell yeah!!

    Good luck with week 5!

  2. Well done on trying to keep positive, that is all you can do to make you get right back in there - as you said you've still done really well so jump back on the horse and you'll be fine in no time :)

  3. 3.5 inches from your waist is amazing, babe. You should totally be proud of that as a NSV.

    Do you track/write down everything you eat? If you do maybe have a look back at the last week and then look at the weeks where you lost to see what worked? It is all about trial and error.

    If you are feeling the need to binge or splurge why not just single yourself one day out or one meal or one evening or whatever works for you where you have a little bit of what you want? Then you can plan for that, work around it and look forward to it, so maybe you won't eat anything else bad for you? Or have a little something nice each day - I often do that.

    You're staying positive, which is great. I believe in you. xx

  4. 3.5 inches in the waist is a big deal! I think you really just have to keep at it and focus on the positive and not let the gain get you down.

  5. I know you're not happy with your gain, but you made progress with losing inches, so don't get discouraged! Keep that great attitude you have - yes, bring it on!!!

    I love your 100 things to do list - I can't wait to see you start crossing them off!

  6. It happens. But inches are much more important!!

  7. Aw thanks for the kindness!!!

    Ditto to what everyone else is saying - losing inches is a sure sign of progress, so don't beat yourself up too much over it.

  8. Erin looks like your doing great. One day at a time.!!!
