A Happy Weight Loss Update and Xmas Neuroses!

Hi all. Sorry it’s been a while since I last updated on my progress. I have made a few little achievements over the last couple of weeks!

I got down to 12 stone nothing! Yay! I was very happy with this result.

On Tuesday I reached a few milestones in the gym. I did a side plank for the first time ever! Both sides, 30 seconds each! I also did 10 press-ups on a 45cm block, my lowest to date! Last Friday, before the above weigh-in, I also ran 28 minutes straight, for the first time ever! My current levels for running are 2.0 incline, 4.8-5 for walking warm-up, 6-7.2 for actual running, averaging at 6.5. So I’ve been doing well. With that being said…

Christmas is only a few days away! Argh, temptation! Food! Drink!

I’ve been naughty with my eating and drinking. I’ve got a chocolate advent calendar I’m getting through. I’ve also been for a few Christmas drinks and had a few sandwiches I wouldn’t normally eat, when I’ve been super-busy out of the house. Tomorrow I would normally weigh in but I’m a little scared with all of the naughty eating and drinking I’ve been doing. I’m sure you can relate to all of the temptation around at Christmas and advent. I’m trying my best to rein it in and staying under my calorie limit for the most part. Sugar is the biggest problem, my biggest weakness and my downfall when it comes to my weight. But I’m going to do this, I’m going to keep going!

I’m very happy with the progress I’ve made so far on this weight loss journey and very proud that I have been able to lose weight despite being on Quetiapine. I was so afraid that I would never be able to lose weight because it was taking so long to start coming off. But thanks to my personal trainer and my willpower of steel (until December hit!) I’ve been doing it!

I will do another update before Christmas. I hope everyone is coping okay with all of the stress and temptation! I think it’s important to allow yourself your extra treats around Christmas. I know I would begin to resent myself if I felt I was really denying myself. But it’s about moderation!
