    Hey everyone, finally decided to make a weight loss diary if my journey, not only of my eating but of my exercise huraah

    I've been around minimins for ages jumping from one diet to the next hence when I originally joined minimins I was slimming down for my sisters wedding where I was chiefbridesmaid.. That was 2 years ago and I'm still getting nowhere sigh!

    That's until I found SLimming World.. 9 weeks, 2 dress sizes, 2st.2lbs.. And a very confident new me has reappeared, I remember that girl well and hope by the end of my journey I will be reunited with her!!

    I was also a Personal Trainer in my previous life so this is what it's all about.. Weight loss to look and feel gorgeous but also I want to regain my fitness and the ability to push my body too new limits. I have starred running again in the past two weeks and it's tough but I feel like it's a new challenge now I've got the eating sorted!! I ran my first 5km last week, I nearly died but that feeling when I was finished was one of accomplishment and I really was proud of myself!

    I hope you guys enjoy my diary and hopefully this will help me stay motivated and focused for my next 2stone!!

    Chief xx

    Thanks a million.. I had a very indulgent night saturday and I'm paranoid about putting up so that's why I'm being 100% for a few days.. My leader always says you can use flexible syns and then get back on track so that's what I've tried to do this week, fingers crossed for weighin!! I wont get to stay for class this week because snow has been unreal so I'll have to see what happens!!
    Enjoy your bubble and squeak for breakfast x

    Wowzers what a tough day, completely snowed in about 14inches here, the snow is higher then my little dog lol so my auntie came to the rescue today in her 4x4 and rescued me and bought me to the supermarket huraah!! I went shopping and bought swede, onions, parsnips, carrots, leeks, stock cubes, chopped toms, peppers, mixed beans, sweetcorn, yoghurts, mushrooms and the all important curly wirlys :)

    So with my great shop today I plan on having a cook-athon tomorrow.. I'm going to make the super speed soup, a vegetable stew, the chicken chilli soup, chicken curry and then portion it all up and freeze it so I have lunch and dinner sorted for the next week yay I love being organized!!

    So due to my unexpected rescue today I didn't end up eating until 1pm so I had a brunch which was:

    2 slimmers choice sausages 2syns
    Bubble and squeak
    Mushrooms
    Baked beans

    Snack around 4ish was a mullerlight yoghurt.

    Dinner: SW chips
    Homemade burger with egg mushroom and onion
    Burger bun was my HexB

    Dinner was amazing a yummy fake-away! I am now cuddled up with tea and a curly wirly 6syns!! I also drank 6pints of water today.

    So due to the snow i can't go to weigh in tomorrow :( I'm really worried about this because I really didnt want to miss a weighin so I shall still weigh myself at home and stay on track, I'm going for 100% this week.

    I am also starting a new exercise program this week, it is hugely weights based which I love doing, it's a tough 12 week program ahead but I know the changes in my body are going to be amazing and my energy levels will rocket if I stick to the plan 100% so hopefully this will push me through my next 2 stone, I can't wait, I just need to stat motivated in this crappy weather!

    Ok rambling ever as this is seriously the longest post EVER lol but it's good to vent :) until tomorrow x

    Another day snowed in, another day frustrated!!! :rolleyes: all i want to do is eat eat eat :eating: so instead im cooking, its quite ridiculous how much i cooked today, would have carried on had i not run out of containers to freeze them in!!!

    Im kinda getting p.off not leaving the house, not getting to work, losing out on pay and not being able to get to the gym!!.. im getting Cabin Fever :wave_cry:

    So overall still stuck to it 100% today, kinda using today as Day1 of my new week as i am supposed to go to weighin but couldnt go grrrr.

    Breakfast:
    2 slices ww toast HexB
    fried egg (in frylight)
    Bacon
    Mushrooms
    Tea

    Lunch:
    Swede, Leeks, Carrots, Parsnip, Lentils, all cooked in a beef stock cube.

    Dinner:
    Chicken Curry SW style
    SW chips

    4 liters Water. I might have a curly wirly later as im feeling sorry for myself because i weighed myself on my scales and it says im 3lbs up :eek:

    Starting my new workout tomorrow so im looking forward to that. xx:4633:

    So I had a great day i must say.. Snow has started to melt which made me very happy.. then it snowed again grrr and then the sun came out wahey!! SO my very kind Dad started digging out my car fro me.. its alive (barely) and started so fingers crossed i will be back to work tomorrow, my mood will definetly improve as i will be getting paid again :D

    Had a 100% day today go me!!

    Breakfast:
    French Toast: recipie from 100 Extra Easy Days book. Consists of 2 WW bread(HexB), dipped in a beaten egg, sprinkled with cinnamon and fried in frylight and all FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! ;)
    Banana, Tea

    Lunch: Super Speed Soup,
    Mullerlight & Apple

    Dinner: 2 Bowls of Chilli Chicken Soup with added pasta to make it bulky.

    I also drank 4 litres water :D and had a further 3 cups of tea using Milk HexA.

    I started my new Exercise Program which i had to modify as i couldnt get to the gym. So i used the Treadmill in my house to do 30mins of Sprinting for a minute, walking for a minute, and i then worked my Upper body, only downside is i only had a set of 3kg Dumbbells which was heavy enough for shoulder work but waay to light for chest and arms so im looking forward to getting back to the gym tomorrow so i have the correct equipment. I then did 30mins of Yoga to finish. So i will certainly sleep well tonight :rolleyes:

    Overall im very happy with my day, i also have done a full 7 day plan of my meals so im organised and know what food i have to buy, but im mostly going to be using all the food i have in my freezer.

    Also, had a crazy thought tonight, i am at the half-way point of my journey, so i wondered what will i do to celebrate when i get to goal?? First will be to get a large lower back tattoo that i have been planning a while... BUT i have decided to do a Skydive for Charity :eek: i dont know what im thinking.. i want to raise money for charity and i kinda want to say hey yes i am skinny enough to jumo out of a plane (please dont question my sanity, its too late for that :rolleyes:)

    Nighty night xx

    I think im going to have to start liking myself a little more from now on.. i think also having a little man trouble could be the problem grr

    Anywho, clearly i should paying a therapist for this chat, i will get to my food lol:
    Breakfast:
    2 Toast HexB
    Beans
    Egg

    Dinner:
    Roast Turkey
    Roast Pot SW style
    Carrots
    Brussel Sprouts
    Peas
    Yorkshire Pudding 3 syns

    Weigh-In tonight lost 2lbs, to be honest I'm not happy, I really put a lot of effort in this week and last and I didn't weigh last week because of the snow, so technically that 2 lbs was the loss over 2 weeks, very disappointed with myself :(

    Back in the Game!!

    A very busy Sunday indeed today.. i really need to start my christmas shopping, i just dont have the time eek, trust me to leave it to the last minute!!

    Work early today, and then to the gym..
    :character00115: I had a KILLER workout today!!!
    10km cycle Bike
    30mins Cross Trainer, alternate 5mins at level 11 and 2 mins Level 8
    20mins jogging Treadmill
    Then i worked my arms today which is part of my split program.

    Kinda concerned today as ive had this pain above my right hip for 4-5 days and its horrendus,:boohoo: really lifts me out of me when then pain is bad, and goes up to my Ribs when i sit down, so i was taking some anti-inflammatory tabs and using deep heat but tbh i dont think its a muscle problem.. i am half considering going to the doctor this week, but quite literally will make me cry to pay the doctor €50 to tell me its a muscle pain :rolleyes: im in two minds because i cant afford it so i will see how bad the pain gets and decide if its liveable.. ah who am i kidding i know i wont.. clearly can buy a weeks shopping with that money!

    Anywho, i went over my syns today so im very very angry with myself for not being more organised.. lesson learned! :sigh:

    Breakfast:
    Hi fi bar HexB
    Banana

    Dinner
    Chicken
    Roast Pot SW style
    Carrots
    Brussel Sprouts
    Peas
    Gravy 1.5
    2 yorkshire puddings 6.0?

    I had 4 liters of water.. good job you may think..Then i went on a total binge and had 3 cookies with a cup of tea.. at 3.5 each, i quite literally inhaled 3 cookies in under a minute for 10.5 syns.. WHY!!!! :doh: Im so angry with myself.. so 18 syns today (which i didnt even enjoy, they made me feel crap :break_diet:)
    Hard work in the gym, then go over syns.. good job girl.. so i have prepared breakfast and lunch for work tomorrow as im in really early so hopefully i will be ok..
    Also i have gym session planned, working the legs tomorrow & hopefully bootcamp will be back tomorrow too!! :cross:

    A very happy Monday it is indeed :D So, i was in work very early this morning and i had a good day, very busy getting organised for the big day next week!! :xmascheers:

    So i was fairly organised, and at the last minute this evening whilst running at the gym i decided to try that smash pizza.. all i can say is oh.my.god :eek: its amazing!!!!!
    Seriously couldnt eat it fast enough, i burnt my tongue :p

    So, gym session today was so tough, i really pushed myself mentally today and hopefully all this work will show on the scales this week.
