Wow, I can't believe what a whirlwind this week at work has been. Out of nowhere, I had some huge tasks for impossible deadlines, ones that were giving me just 5 hours' sleep a night - so as you can see, the blogging suffered, as did the exercise plans - I'm afraid I haven't been able to fit any at all in this week. <insert embarrassed face here>. I've not quite got through to the other side yet, let's just say I am really looking forward to Saturday and a lie in!
Anyway, enough of my woes, as promised, I am checking in for my first Weigh-in Wednesday!
Earlier, I got an email from the Slimming World website reminding me it was time for my first weigh in. To be honest, I was so tired that I couldn't even remember what my starting weight was, so I wasn't sure what to expect. And I definitely wasn't expecting miracles, as last night, Mr Awesome had come home with a pot of cookies and cream Haagen Dazs for me (I think he could see how stressed I was getting from work). However, once I entered this morning's weight, the site announced I had.... lost 1.4kg!!
Errr - I have just googled how much that is in pounds and my jaw has almost hit the floor. It's just over 3lbs!! How on earth did that happen? Wow. Imagine if I had managed to exercise more than twice in the last week huh...
In general, the SW way of eating has really cut down on my sugar intake, and as a result I'm noticing that I'm not really feeling hunger pangs as much as I used to. I do love the fact that I don't have to weigh anything or count points or calories, as who has really got time for that?! As for sugar cravings, well that (small!) pot of cookies and cream was the only sweet/sugary thing that I've had since starting this blog - before, I'd happy eat a pot a night <insert yet another embarrassed face!> - but now I just don't feel the urge. I also think this blog is helping, as I feel accountable to it, in fact I even feel guilty when I don't pop on with a daily update!
Anyway, it's getting late here now, and I still have some more work to do before bed, so, for now, I shall bid you farewell, and let's hope for a bit more spare time to blog and exercise once the weekend is here!
