So it’s the end of another week losing weight my way. I feel like I’ve been really naughty this week… too many snickers, a cheeky cupcake & even some ice cream, in my defence it was my brothers birthday and it would have been rude not to.
However I’m happy to announce I have still lost! A modest 2lb this week, it’s a lot less than last week but I’m happy, anything is better than nothing.
As promised, I have done a diary of my meals. I think making a note of what I eat is actually helping me stay on track. (along with thousands of you reading about my progress🙈) Ignore the flapjack for lunch part…

I’ve eaten really well this week, I’ve had some delicious food and quite enjoyed cooking it. We’ve not had to overspend on food either so i’m more than happy. The sourdough pizza was brought over for us by relatives and it turns out sourdough is fine on the Low GI diet. Wooooo 🍕
Exercise didn’t quite go to plan, did a 5k walk Monday and a few sit ups/squats throughout the rest of the week but nothing to shout about. Next week is going to be focused on exercise and I’ll be writing up a daily exercise diary, pressures on!
Just over 2 weeks to go until the cruise, eeeeek!
