So last week I said I was going to have a week without alcohol, turns out I have no will power when it comes to wine, although I did make a bottle of wine last over 4 days so it wasn't all bad.
Jumping on the scales this week I was feeling more positive, exercise has been going well and for the most part I've been eating really well, I may have snuck in an ice cream or two, well it was extremely warm weather.
So this week I stayed the same with my weight and my measurements which I guess I should be happy with.
Now the picture above is why I'm feeling more motivated this week. The top photo was from roughly a year and a half ago and the bottom one was from last Wednesday. Now according to the blog post where the first picture came from, I weighed less than I do now but my measurements were roughly the same re waist and hips. However the bottom picture looks a lot better in my opinion, ok the saggy skin still remains (dreaded bum tum) but I think even that is receeding and there is less love handles, more definition, even the stretch marks have faded.
The photo below shows a better view of how I look now.
So what I'm trying to get at is that it isn't all about the numbers on the scale because I weigh more now but my body appears to look healthier and more in shape. In short it is more about how you look and feel rather than the lbs!!
Food wise this week I'm not writing a meal plan as I am starting the 3 week diet plan and the first week is all about vegetables and protein so a lot of soups, salads etc
Drink wise the diet calls for just water however I think I may modify it slightly so that I can still have a cup of green tea a day.
Anyone else started to get fit now that the sunshine is making more of an appearance, do you feel the pressure to get fit this time of year??
