Week 13. I’ve maintained, keeping my weight loss at 14lbs. To say I’m disappointed is an understatement. I haven’t done anything different, kept well in within my syn allowance, continued to exercise (although I did miss one days run and my Pilates class was cancelled but can’t see that making a difference.) I know you’re not meant to weigh yourself at home, but after my group I always do and it’s always the same. So I did the same last night and it said I’d lost 2lbs so to be honest I’m really confused. I wanted a couple of lbs to play with as I went out for dinner last night and I’m out for dinner tomorrow with drinks for my best friend’s birthday and I really don’t want to go above my stone loss.
On to what I've been eating in the past week. Managed to try a couple of new recipes this week, beef & mushroom stroganoff and fish cakes, both were equally as yummy. I didn’t get chance to make the brownies so I’ll try and give that a go this week. I’ve noticed I’ve eaten more carbs this week too , maybe that’s a factor as to why I’ve maintained, but I’ve never usually had a problem! Usual in the week breakfast is fruit with yogurt and lunches are my quiche. I tend to stick to cheese and bread at weekends and use my HexA on milk in hot drinks and HexB on Hifi bars during the week.
Exercise. As I mentioned before my Pilates class was cancelled on Sunday, so I did a 4 mile run instead. Did my body sculpt class on Monday and did 5 miles over Tuesday and Thursday. Although I am about 50 mins down from last week, which makes sense not going to Pilates and missing a run. Maybe that really did contribute after all?
It’s been a very confusing week as you can see!
Favourite meal last week? Beef and mushroom stroganoff
Learnt anything new? Keeping it consistent doesn’t always mean a loss.
Complete last weeks aims? Nope, kept my miles the same.
Aims for this week? I’d like to have a syn free week but as I’m out tomorrow that’s impossible. So from Sunday, 0 syns.
Any new dishes to try? Still need to try the low syn brownies.
