Wooooo! I made it. Thank god those daily blogs are over eh?
Despite a wee bit of weekend cheating and higher calorie intake I achieved a great loss this week – the best yet!
1.5kgs! Wooooo! And a total lost of 3.2kgs overall which averages out at about 1kg per week. That is normal healthy weight loss and I am happy with that as if we can slowly get it off just through healthy eating then it is more likely to be sustained.
I am going through a bit of a food boredom stage so I need to have a squiz at the recipes that others have sent me and create a bit of a more interesting meal plan this week to keep me on track and give me some variety.
Moving forward I am going to be less focused on calorie intake per day. I am now moving into a stage where I want my body to really feel nurtured to make me some beautiful eggs so I don’t want to be limiting too much with food. I want to feel comfortably full all the time but without bursting. So if I lose the additional 3 kgs I was aiming for before stims then that’s great but if I don’t and I just maintain then that is cool too. I just want to be healthy.
So how did I go with my goals for the 21 days?
While I didn’t stay off all processed food and a teeny bit of sugar did sneak in (that slice of cake at the christening and whatever was in the limited amount of packaged food I ate) I did achieve my main goals:
1. Get off that nasty coffee addiction – SUCCESS
2. Stop buying and eating in one sitting: whole blocks of chocolate, entire bags of lollies, entire packets of biscuits etc. – SUCCESS – I ate nothing like this at all during the previous 21 days. I think this is the achievement I am most proud of.
3. Pay more attention to the food going in at meal times and increase the daily fruit and vege serves. – SUCCESS – I definitely improved but I think I can do more.
I also achieved something which wasn’t on my goal list but feels like the biggest success of all and that is a desire to stick to the path. It is not easy to find this and I am so pleased I did this time round as it has the potential to be life changing in only good ways.
Thanks again. No more foodie health posts now until next Monday when I weigh-in again.
Have a great day folks x
