I had so many good intentions of writing more often but time has (as usual) got away from me. I used to write a lot in my lunch break, but my new phone is a Windows phone and there is not good WP app I have found (if anyone can recommend one I will be very grateful!) so I’m trying to fit it in at home. In hindsight, perhaps rebooting my weight loss efforts over the summer was a mistake, I have been really really busy with birthdays, weekends away etc etc, so I haven’t given it my full attention. But September starts tomorrow, I have just purchased a new year-long gym membership and I have ended the summer at a lower weight than I started it.
So far this week (my SW week runs Saturday to Saturday), I have been to McDonalds, Nandos and the cinema. That doesn’t sound great, does it? But I planned and stuck to my syns, stayed in control and feel so much better psychologically for it. That has given me a massive boost for the rest of the week, and I’m excited to go back to the gym tomorrow. For the last couple of weeks I had intended to work out at home, but I stayed in bed every day. Fail. But my renewal is done and I’m ready to get back. I might even do kettlebells. Maybe.
I feel so inspired that I think a September challenge might be in order. Taking my current low fitness levels into consideration, does anyone have any suggestions??
This is a bit random, but I thought I would share anyway. This week I have tried a new fruit and a new veg. I wasn’t convinced about either but they are both yummy. Chinese flat cabbage (think squashed looking white cabbage) is sweet – I like it stirfried with soy sauce or cumin seeds. I don’t think I’d boil it though, I like the crunch! And the fruit is greengages; I’m not good with soft fruits with stones (except cherries) but I will happily make an exception for these. Yum yum yum.
