Thought I would write down my first few weeks on maintenance as it saves me talking to myself! I am doing this my way which does not mean itís the correct, but I am hoping it works for me.
I have swapped to slim and Save purely because 1) bigger variety 2) did not like flavors of Lipotrim maintenance 3) cheaper.
I got to goal last week, but I never had time to re-feed before my planned week-end, not advisable but do-able.
Friday Ė Shake breakfast and lunch. I went out to our local for a bottle of wine and food with hubby and friends...fab night. I had 2 large wines and a chicken salad. I felt slightly drunk on one large wine and had a few waters and a packet of peanuts before I attempted my second wine. My roast chicken salad was fantastic.
Saturday Ė Woke up starving so I had toast (with loads of butter) for my breakfast, sandwich, chocolate and crisps for my lunch and of an evening, my hubby had taken me away for a night in a lovely hotel and we had a 3 course meal in the restaurant (diet what diet). I had a couple of glasses of wine and a whiskey! Did not feel bloated, or ill but I was very full and struggled to sleep.
Sunday - Shake for breakfast (took it with me) and one for lunch and dinner. HOWEVER I was slightly naughty as I made hubby a meal and I 'picked' when cooking as I was very hungry. Big mistake as I made my husband an apply crumble and I kept nibbling!
Monday morning - weighed in 7lb up! Head back on and had 3 shakes and did my usual 2.5 hours of exercise (swim, gym and a spinning class). I expect to have a gain this week, however I am aiming for 2lb.
I have a really good social life and I am away a lot on business so food and drink plays a big part in my life, but I love clothes and want to look my best. My plan is to live at week-ends, but stick to 2 shakes and a healthy meal through a week or 3 shakes if Iíve been excessive.
Not sure my plan is for everyone but I need a Ďplaní that will fit around my lifestyle and allow me to keep to a sensible weight.
Anyhow peeps, I will let you know if I sink or swim
