The B&W Photography Project #44

This was taken last summer. I loved how the tree branches framed the picture I just wish I could have moved the cows about.

Motivational Monday

This week I have found myself looking back at other weeks to see how many days I have managed to stick to my calories, now I usually allow for a treat on a Monday that puts me over so I aim for 6 days but most weeks I only manage 4 this I need to work on. When I go over it probably works out to 250 to 500 calories for the week which isn’t good. Also with regards to exercise that seems to be going well I get some form of exercise each day but I really do think I need to step it up. I know I say this in every post but I need to do a workout dvd. I think my body needs the shock of more intense workout. I mentioned getting a fitbit a few post back but I just couldn’t justify the money right now for it. I did pick up a basic pedometer but have yet to set it up as I feel that using my phone to track my walks works the best since I am taking it with me anyway.
Now onto this week. I have been on track 4 days Wednesday I went over by 4 calories and Friday I decided to go off plan as we were ordering tea in. I didn’t go massively overboard I finished the day at 1725 calories. Which is 305 over my allowance. I also made a new soup this week and was very impressed it was delicious and I will definitely be making it again. I managed to get out and walk everyday which is an improvement on previous weeks. My weigh in was a bit disappointing but still a loss. I lost 0.6lbs it’s not what I was hoping for and means I need to lose 3.2lbs next week to reach my goal to have lost 20lbs by the end of March. I have also realised I am so close to being under 11st (154lb) currently weigh 159.8lbs. I am still on target for weighing 140lbs for my sister in-laws wedding in July.
A friend on instagram just reminded me to not focus solely on the results on the scales I have come so far this year I have more energy I eat better and the clothes in my wardrobe all fit or are too big. Below is a progress picture I shared this week and I can see a massive difference. That huge belly is gone I no longer look 6 months pregnant. 
Plans for this week STICK to calories and DO workout dvd. 
Love this picture of Alessa it describes her perfectly she loves all aspects of nature.

Lovely Things #2 May

The first lovely thing has to be the weather. It has be dark and grey for so long so to see blue skies and white fluffy clouds have be so up lifting. I am currently trying to lose weight and find it so much easier to go for walks when the weather is nice.
 My second lovely thing is my new paper weight. I spotted this in a shop and it was reduced to £1.50 and I knew I had to have it. Robins are my favourite bird and I have been getting into stationary supplies recently so thought I need a paper weight.
DSCN7850My final thing is freshly washed bedding and being the first to climb in. I purposely change my bedding on a Monday as I know hubby will be out late. I can enjoy the relaxing feeling you get from snuggling up in them. In fact that is where I am as I right this.

Weekly Weigh in

This has been a disappointing week I just haven’t been focused at all. I just couldn’t stay motivated.


Steps This weeks steps have been moderate. I reach my target of our 70.000 in a week that I set myself in my planner but only just. I never got anywhere near 100,000 in my week never mind in the challenge.

Eating This will a short section I did’t track for 4 days I ate whenever I wanted and none of it was healthy.

Water Finally a section I am happy with I drank all of my water except one glass. I only missed it because I thought I had drank it but had in fact left it in kitchen and din’t discover till next morning. I was so annoyed.

Weigh in Now this is a big shock to me but some how in amongst all my laziness and my over eating I still managed to loss 1.4lbs. I have no idea my body clearly wants to loss weight even when I loss faith.

Goals for next week 

  • Find my motivation.
  • Get out of the 160lbs.
  • Keep up with my water.

How was your week?

Thank you for reading. x
