Suprise is the Order of the Week

Weigh in:  1lb Loss

After an excellent first week at Weight Watchers, a loss of 8lbs brought me back to where I was in April. I knew this following week was going to be tough, as a short holiday at the in-laws was bound to disrupt things. Before we left, I promised myself I would enjoy myself without going mad,  and return to eating properly on my return. I’ve been religiously using the app to track my eating, but struggled with the ‘should I/shouldn’t I’ whilst I was away. On one hand, I didn’t want to obsess and suck the fun out my holiday (as well as being awkward to cook for!) but I didn’t want to waste my hard work from the previous week.

Time Away

I didn’t track. I bought some skimmed milk, low-fat natural yoghurt and fruit. I ate reasonably well for breakfast and lunch, enjoyed ice cream, drinks and a 3-course meal on the last night. I also did some walking and a swim in the sea. I found it hard, and was actually dreading the trip, as James’ mother and youngest sister were both at home (Both slim and beautiful)

To my surprise, Sister Youngest is a health freak and we ended up sharing breakfasts and recipes! I was also strangely inspired by her energy and motivation to keep herself trim and healthy. She reminds me of myself at her age, and I’m now hoping to manage a run with her next time I’m over – she’s really inspired me to push on!

Run on My Return

Because of my knee injury, I’ve been pretty limited with exercise. I have however ‘allowed’ myself one short run per week, and really wanted to get it in before weighing in this week to counterbalance my beer and ice cream. This was my second attempt and the  runkeeper lady kept me company as usual – I shaved a whopping 20 seconds off my run time! It’s amazing what half a stone can do….


I lost a pound! 9 lbs in 2weeks. I was expecting at best to stay the same, so I’m overjoyed by my progress. I’m now working off two separate goal lists, so have checked off goal 1 on the page here, and I’m 1lb away from my 2nd Weight Watchers goal of losing 5% of my body weight.

Have a good week, folks!
