WEEK 6 - still not progressing

Sunday, May 12, 2013

So, i've had another great week socially speaking, but unfortunately this has meant another bad week weight-wise - i'm afraid i've gained again emoticon emoticon

We had a bank holiday so last weekend went on for 3 days - yay! And it was hot and sunny the whole time so lots of time outside. I started planning our South America trip (we're hoping to go for a couple of months on our way from England to Canada) which left me very motivated, but this cold is still nagging me and left me feeling a little lack-luster to say the least. I didnt make it to the gym all week!

My boyfriends a chef and normally works all the hours God sends, but has a week off so we've been able to spend time together (yay!) but this always involves eating and drinking - he's a chef!! What am i to do?!

Basically, i'm making excuses for the fact that i've got in to a cycle of LAZINESS and i need to PULL MYSELF OUT OF IT!! So i'm going to the gym this week if it kills me emoticon

Last week:
16st 13lbs/237lbs/107.7kg
BMI 38.27

This week:
17st 1lb/239lbs/108.6kg
BMI 38.59

So as you can see, i've gained 2lbs - why is it so EASY to gain but so HARD to lose?! I'm not going to lie, i'm a little down about this. I've seen this cycle before - highs and lows - and it does become tiresome to the point where you want to give i'm digging my heels in and trying desperately to get back on track before i get to the point where i want to give up!!

This week I WILL DO BETTER BY MYSELF emoticon

Anyway, part of the fun which added to this is documented below (it's hard to be too down about gaining weight when it was so much fun to put it on!). We went to a beautiful town called Salisbury with an amazing cathedral:

i love sun dials!

spot the snail ;0)

my fella

the Cathedral spire

i hate full lengths of me, but this is dark so fine!

luuuuurve stained glass windows

hot chocolate with whipped cream, marshmallows and a flake...could've contributed to the 2lbs!!

Hope you all had a good week, am looking forward to reporting back next weekend! xx

    Have you seen A League of Their Own? Your full length photo reminds me of how they filmed Marla Hooch for the newsreel. Hilarious! You look great, come into the light! That hot chocolate is making my tummy rumble! Beautiful pictures!

    Ok, so you had an off week weight wise, looks like you had a good time though, so that's cool. Just try and concentrate on doing what you know you need to do to get back on track and things will work out alright :)

    You have some great pictures of the cathedral, I really enjoy the old architecture (medieval, gothic, renaissance as well as Roman and Greek). I think it's cool that you live in a place that has such rich and old history. For me, the history is the reason I'd like to visit Europe.

    The hot chocolate looks good, and you have the proper pinky finger extension befitting a lady :)
