Death by brownies
Sunday, May 06, 2012
Ok so I did really well for the first 4 days of no sugar and then I had one bite of a banana cake and it sparked a vicious craving for sugar that I gave it to. Yesterday I made brownies and ate 1/3 of them myself!! argh!
So today I have stopped all that nonsense and am back it in! On the positive side I went to 3 body pumps classes last week, plus running and swimming so at least it didn't all fall apart. I've only lost 1/2 an inch off my bust though (somewhere I do not need to lose anything!) so this morning was a bit of a downer. Oh and only 2.2lbs down but then I figure that it was probably more than that before I went on a brownie bender and sabotaged all my good work!
Looking on the right side, I went a bit sugar mad and still lost 2.2lbs so yay for that! And that means there is hope for this weekend. If I am good until Thur and then have a big night of drinking but pick it back up again on Friday I might still lose weight when traditionally any alcohol instantly means a weight gain of 6lbs. Which is why I am virtually tee total these days.
And I intend to go to another 3 body pump classes and try and fit some running in there too this week. I'm seeing progress with the BP class as they're not SO exhausting now and I can last longer on some of the moves that are actually trying to kill me. One day I might even be able to do a proper push up! That will be an awesome day. I'm less sore after each class too which means I'm not hobbling or limping around the office as all my muscles seize up in protest.
So progress! Maybe not as much as I'd hoped but that will teach me not to have a bite of cake thinking I can handle it. Clearly I can't!
