I will blog properly later, with hopefulyl a better blog, about today, being day 23.
Yikes 4 whole days passed in an instance... and with a bare minimum of workouts. I did a spring clean at the weekend, so that will have burned some calories... apart from that, i haven't done a whole lot of anything. =(
My weigh in, i lost a quarter of a pound. So i'm basically the same. Again. I feel like i'm not gonna pass 161lbs at the moment. My goal is 160 and i've floated just above for 2 months. Maybe because i know when i achieve 160, it doesn't mean a lot, because my ultimate goal is 145.
I just KNOW in the back of my mind too, that i can't lose more weight until after September 25th. After i've worn my wedding dress, then i know i can work hard again. I think this is subconciously stopping me throwing my whole butt and more into this bootcamp. I am bootcamping, but not with 100% effort. I am satisfied because it is helping my fitness a WHOLE lot, and it's gotta be toning. It's also helping massively to keep me here, to keep me on my game and to keep me aware of everything. So bootcamp is fantastic.
Water aerobics tonight.

I was totally beat when i got home from work last night... booo... and my muscles were a little achy from workouts. So day 17 became a rest day. I feel bad about this. But i don't want to feel bad... i have looked at my progress and my weight has been the same for over a month now. BUT... i have to remember that i can't lose too much more weight, atleast until after my wedding, because i don't want to propose more problems with my wedding dress... so maybe i should be thankful i am the same weight, Atleast i haven't gained. But i shouldn't have gained, because i am still on track (most of the time)... i feel a little bit like i'm in a catch 22.
I am excited to see any progress in the Bootcamp update we have coming up ... but am worried there will be no progress. I have worked out more, so maybe i will tone up. I hope so.
Day 18 will be a good one, as i have aqua aerobics later again tonight. I'm excited for that and am enjoying a different style of workout. I get sore from it so i do believe my body is responding in a positive manner.
SparkRecipes is so great... i made lamb kaftas (we call 'em koftas) last night for tea... i did have a slightly large portion... but they were so good! LOL... Thought i would post a pic, if i hadn't have made them myself i'd have sworn somebody bought them from a shop or takeaway haha...
They were sooooo good... and i grilled 'em so got rid of a lot of that lamb fat!! So i'd highly recommend the recipes to everyone. "baked beef or lamb kaftas"
I am eating more carbs daily this week... it's bringing me more into or closer to my daily nutrtional goals, so maybe that will help me, maybe it won't? Next week will tell!

Day 15 it is. I made it a good one. *I* made it a good one. I am being positive. Now.
Day 14 had ok eating. Not for dinner. I didn't do any exercise.
I was SO frustrated yesterday. Even some of today. I didn't know what i wanted to eat. I didn't want our traditional Sunday roast dinner. I wanted something healthy. Healthier. I couldn't decide or even think of something up what i wanted. I went shopping with my DF and we walked around Tesc's for like an hour. I put burgers in the trolley. And then a big pizza. And then sausages. What was i doing? What was i having?
I was frustrated with Stephen, i just wanted him to TELL me what we were eating, but for it to be perfect. Nothing could be perfect though because i was just so... up tight.
I then suggested we eat out again. A buffet place. I figured if we went to a buffet place, i would have a bit of everything, but i wouldn't overload. Yeah? Good thing was - i so think i saved myself from falling down low... and some bad eating... by sort of making a bad decision? But... with good, ripples.
We put all the crap back on the shelves and walked out. That was a relief. I felt better already. We went for a meal and had a few drinks afterwards. I was happier and less frustrated.
I did lose a quarter of a pound in my weigh in. This still frustrated me... i had different forms of exercise this week and thought it just might blow me past my plateu. It didn't. Why i let this frustrate me... i don't know, because in my heart i know i haven't been 100% effort like i could be, like i used to be. Like i was to get here.
So i fixed something. I haven't been meal planning for the past couple of weeks... maybe more. I haven't ate really bad, but i do think the not planning has hurt me a little bit. I planned out this week with exciting recipes from Spark, to kickstart my week and put the excitement back into it. (we had bavarian beef stew for tea, not bad!)
I had an hours hi-impact cardio later today, with strength training afterwards. I'm eating good. I am going to make this a good week. I am taking responsibility for myself and my own actions and i am going to repair what i've started to tear.
