So I'm trying something different this week. I'm not weighing in. I've decided not to step on the scales and I have to say it is strangely liberating. Continuing on from what I said in my post last week, I'm trying not to obssess so much when it comes to the numbers, the lbs and inches because as I keep trying to remember, it is how we feel that really counts.
I know I had a not so great week when it came to what I consumed. A tad to much alcohol was drunk and not all the right foods were eaten but my clothes still fit so I can't have piled on too much weight no can I?
Plus I bought a couple of items of clothes, size 8, now this is the first time a size 8 hasn't been a teensy bit tight, they actually fit properly. I've not managed to fit into a size 8 since I was around 15 years old so I'll admit I was quite pleased with myself.
One thing I haven't stopped is the exercise and having got a fitbit a couple of weeks ago I have become more aware of when I'm being a little lazy shall we say. It's made me strive to walk around more because I do like hitting the targets set and it makes me feel good knowing I've made an effort that day.
The fitbit has also shown just how up in the air my sleeping pattern is, I need to work on being a little more relaxed at bedtime as I've read time and time again that the amount you sleep can also affect your weight.
It felt good having a week off, not stressing about calories and how fatty certain foods can be. However I am also happy to get back on that healthy eating wagon as my tummy quite frankly isn't thanking me for allowing it so many treats such as doughnuts and chinese takeaway.
Now is a good time to get back on my quest to finding that elusive balance.
