I am feeling a lot more positive about my weight this month. Last month I think I was a bit down as it didn’t seem like anything was working. But I have carried on plugging away and I am feeling good for it. I guess everyone is going to hit a slump at some point and last month was mine.
I honestly wasn’t sure how this month would pan out. For the first two weeks I didn’t go to the gym at all as I had a horrendous hacking cough. Just walking from room to room was making me out of breath. My chest was very heavy and sore, but the doctor assured me I didn’t have a chest infection.
Thankfully, it began to subside and I felt like being active again.
I have been more careful about what I have been eating. My diet is far from perfect, but there are less sweet treats going in my mouth than before! My willpower seems to be getting a little better and I am learning to say no to the sweet stuff. I haven’t had a biscuit for two months now, this is a really big thing for me.
Switching to decaf tea is something else I have done this week. It just felt like a good thing to do and I haven’t noticed a difference in taste.
This week was the first week of the Easter holidays here. With the kids being home I have not always been able to go to the gym when I have wanted, but we have done a lot of walking around parks this week.
I am loving the lighter evenings as this is great for getting a nice walk in at the end of the day. We can all go and we are lucky that there are a lot of lovely places to walk in our area.
Over the month I have lost 2lbs. I am happy with this as the start of the month was rubbish. A loss was not expected at all. My weight loss progress is slow, but it is going in the right direction. I do feel better for the work I am putting in.
One big change for us though is that we have cancelled our gym membership. We were going to a very nice gym and it was costing us a lot. Unfortunately we cannot keep paying this out every month. We are trying to save for a house deposit at the moment so we are cutting back everything.
Hubby and I have a few pieces of workout equipment at home and Ben Bob has a home gym which we can use too. I am sure I can find lots of ideas from YouTube as well. This will change how I work out a bit, but I am confident that I can keep my weight loss up.
Do you have any weight loss tips for me?
Take care everyone.
