Only another week before I go on holiday with Mr C! Just me and him for 3 nights in a cottage. Was thinking about inviting some friends to stay over one of the nights, but changed my mind. We don't get to spend enough time, just us. When we met, I already had Amy, so we've never never been together, just the two of us. So time for ourselves needs to be protected and treasured.
I've committed to myself to a new weekly themed blog called Life Circle from Kate of Five F's Blog My first week was very thought provoking. The way Kate described it was:
You decide what needs changing, make those changes, and then review, decide what needs changing, and so on. Repeating the process helps you to review your progress. But also, I want this to be a process where people support each other, challenging, encouraging and commenting on each other's posts. One big circle of friends, helping each other along their respective roads.
Why don't you pop over and take a look?
And lastly..because for once I am really struggling....I have had to do some real glass half full thinking today. I've been going to the gym regularly and actually upped the frequency this week, including a reasonable week folllowing Slimming World (I won't mention the KFC I had on Friday night! It was just chicken and chips and I went straight back to plan for the rest of the week!) I was expected a loss when I weighed.
Slightly annoyed when I didn't! Nothing. I maintained! All that work and nothing to show for it.
But I have turned it around in my head. I am exercising more, so maybe I have lost inches and converted some of the weight from fat to muscle. Also, I have the last two weeks, added a patch to my HRT regime. I've been told most HRT's can result in some weight gain.
So where is this glass half full thinking I hear you ask? Well, if I hadn't worked out so hard this week, I would probably have put on! And just think if I wasn't on a diet? I would be the size of a small house by now with the effect of the HRT!
I am therefore counting myself lucky to have maintained and am sure my hart work will pay off next week.
Just got to keep away from the takeaways tonight!
