Weekly Weigh In + SCC Update

Morning lovely people!

I weighed in this morning, and I can usually kind of tell what to expect. I know if I've had a bad week and should see a gain, and I know if I've done well - and it's not always to do with how I've eaten or exercised, but more to do with how I feel. If I feel bloated, I know the loss wont be as good, and vice-versa; if I feel slimmer and less bloated I can usually expect a good week. But this week has been a funny one for a couple of reasons. It took me a few days to get back into my routine after my birthday, and while I feel like I've worked out hard and can already feel a difference that way, my food intake hasn't been great. I really didn't know how I would have done, so when I saw that I had at maintained the same weight as last week it made absolute sense. I will ill last week, and therefore my body was recovering from that, and then with the birthday celebrations to maintain was totally expected. I'm fine with it, and have made my peace! Onwards!

Previous weight: 13st 7 1/2lbs (189.5lbs)
Current weight: 13st 7 1/2lbs (189.5lbs)
+/-: 0lbs

Last weeks SCC goals:

Maintain my weight at least, lose if I can. -Yep!

Work out! Anything is better than nothing. Re-do week 3 of C25k minimum. -Yep, 4 days of 30 Day Shred, no running. Bit scared of running when it's so icy out, but I'll try this week.

Continue to track and drink 2l of water. -No to tracking, yes to water.

Caffeine free - have been caffeine free Thurs to Mon (apart from one coffee at a friends on Sunday) and it was HARD! I get bad headaches and sometimes the only thing that helps shift it is a diet coke. But I switched to caffeine free coke and decaf coffee, and got at least 2l of water every day.

Goals for this week:

Lose 1 1/12lbs, to bring me to 40lbs total.

Menu Plan, Track - be accountable!

Keep up the water - 2l a day.

Complete level 1 of 30 Day Shred - have done 4 days so far, rest day today and back to it tomorrow. Plus a couple of runs if I can.

Mini challenge - drink only water. I'm not sure if I can (or want to) but I will stay caffeine free where possible.

I am having a day off today, rest day from 30 day shred as my neck is aching (I suck at crunches) and going for a meal later. I may do some pilates stretching later if I get time, but I want to get my menu plan worked out as I didn't do one last week which was part of the problem with food I'm sure. I have a new WW mag to look at for recipe ideas, and stocked up on snacks this morning. I'm ready for a great week! Who's joining me?



  1. Sounds like you have been realsitic about last week. Good luck for the next x

  2. good luck my dear, you're doing so well. keep your focus on the goal. gillian is scary heehee

    1. She really is! I feel like she "knows" I didn't work out yesterday lol

  3. Good luck this week, it seems like you're doing great!

  4. You've done really well this week. I don't blame you for not running in the icy conditions. Best to be safe!

    1. Thanks Tim, I'll stick to indoor exercise this week I think!x

  5. Maintaining is great for some weeks I think. I'm with Tim on the running on ice, that is just too dangerous for me.

    1. Well if Maren the viking says it's too dangerous, then it definitely is!x

  6. I think running on ice is not a good idea. I can barely keep my feet under me and dry warm concrete. LOL. Also the shred is butt kicking enough. Hope you have a great week.

  7. I love that picture! Just saved it for my pin board! Hope you have a great week and get to the 40lbs! x
