So no movement on the scales this week, which is a good thing really. I’ve held onto my insane 4lb loss from last week, which makes it real and acknowledgeable! I am officially down to a weight I haven’t been for 5 years, at least according to my scales. I don’t think I’m going to lose anymore at this stage. My body has only ever been lower than this from anxiety (unable to eat for 3 weeks – no fun) or illness and I don’t want to resort to either thanks. I still want to gain muscle and drop fat, but it’s happening and I’m healthy so that’s all good.
I had my measurements done on Friday and, since I started this journey, I’ve lost about 4 inches from my hips. That’s huge. It changes my body shape in a big way. I’m no longer hippy-McHipster. I’m still all hour-glass-like but less so. It makes it THAT much easier to go shopping. Yay to that. The hips have always been my ‘area’ – the one part of my body that I love to hate. For the first time ever really, I’m not looking at myself in the mirror and focusing on one body part immediately.
Cooking-wise, I’ve been trying new things. I got a little tired of chicken, so I’ve had fish tacos and pasta salad this week so far. I’m slowly but surely increasing my repetoire and saving money considering I’m no longer buying lunch at work everyday.
Goal for this week:
- Get to the gym 4 times
- Keep up the 2-3 litres of water everyday
- Try 1 new recipe with a completely new ingredient (AKA something I’ve never cooked with before!)
- Get all my dresses altered so that I can wear them and enjoy them before the end of summer!
Have a great week all!
