Hi everyone. Hope you all had a great week. Come and say hi to me on Twitter: @ellie1989 :)
So as you may have guessed by the title...I've been a bit naughty this week and have eaten loads! Oops! I guess after feeling like I'd indulged last week but still managing to secure a 2lbs loss, meant that this week I was very relaxed with counting my points. Infact so relaxed that I didn't even bother to record them all in my Weight Watchers app.
As some of you may know, I'm a student training to become a primary school teacher and have been in a school all week on teaching practice. It seems that school dinners aren't particularly healthy and often result in a calorific pudding! Sadly though I don't have the willpower to resist them, as I'm often drained come dinner time and in need of a hearty meal. So, I allow myself the treat of at least one decent/cheeky meal a day (with dinner time more of a snacky meal) yet it means point wise I have to estimate their values (usually around 15 PP).
However this week has been one of those weeks whereby the school has had cake sales and staffroom treats and what not, so I've definitely been nibbling more than usual. I also had a few nights where I felt like eating and then eating some more...We all get this from time to time, don't we?!
Tuesday evening for example, I ate my dinner and then finished off a box of my houesemate's poppadoms dipped in mango & chutney. Not sure why, but damn were they good! :)
Friday was the cake sale day at school and unfortunately my role was to take the children to buy their cakes. Lucikly this only involved two trips but each time I went I treated myself to a shortbread biscuit. I was hungry, honest. And then the staffroom had white chocolate chip cookies... Oh dear!
And then of course yesterday was Nandos day. I met up with a friend and I took advantage of my free 1/4 chicken, adding creamy mash and spicy rice as sides. It was so worth it, I have to say! But then I was just plain GREEDY and decided to buy sweets to munch on whilst watching Taken 2 at the cinemas. I felt like something sweet? :/ lol. The movie was amazing btw, yet can never live up to the first one.
So as you can guess, today I wasn't feeling particularly optimistic about my weigh-in! Again I had to head to my local Boots store and use their scales as my gym has seemingly lost theirs?! :S
RESULTS: (Drum roll)....
A STS!!! Yes, that's right, I stayed exactly the same weight. Pretty shocked I have to say but obviously my body didn't react too badly to the naughty week I had. Also I did go to the gym Sun, Tues, Thurs, Fri and again today so I guess that could have helped reduce the food impact. Haha.
Anyway...back on the wagon this week with only 2lbs to go until Goal Weight! (Although I may adjust slightly when I get there). Heading back to my much missed Boot Camp and Step n Core classes on Thursday during a visit home. Yes, it's half term for school's where I am. So I may just have to let you know how I get on with that. Hope my fitness level hasn't decreased too much?! EEK.
Wish everyone a good or better week this week , if you too didn't quite keep to it last week. At the end of the day we all have to be a bit naughty sometimes, but moderation is key! Keep going, you can do it :)
