After a good start to the week when I had my 'diet head' firmly on, the second part of the week has included beer, takeaways, muffins, chocolate and ice cream - non of which is conducive to weight loss!
On a more positive note though, I did feel that everything was a) in moderation and b) thoroughly enjoyed.
I no longer feel that I am about to commit 'ideal weight' suicide but my conduct has been of a 'maintain' nature rather than about shedding the excess pounds.
Time to take stock (and thank you Liska for this monday linky because it is this which is motivating me to do so).
What went wrong? Why did my good start fail to sustain itself?
I actually have a very simple answer and it is one I can put right.
This week has been a very busy one with people needing to be fed at different times to accommodate their schedules. I have been tired and disorganised when it came to evening meals. If it gets to 6pm and I still haven't even thought about what to make for dinner, I can pretty much guarantee I won't make the best choices.
To make sure this doesn't happen again, I have made a menu plan for the whole week. It is easy enough to scribble a few ideas up on the white board in the kitchen (well it would be if I could find a pen that worked) but for me that could make the difference between being focussed/on track/in control and letting the local Indian provide my calorie intake.
My weight this morning stood at 10st 10lbs so that is 1lb down on last week. I should probably be grateful that there were No Cakes at Blog Camp Manchester!
Hoping you #MumenTum ladies have more spectacular losses to report as I aim to be doing next Monday.
Off to do some VIGOROUS housework now.
