BMI Battles

I just can't seem to get back on track.

A few weeks ago now I fell off the dieting and exercise wagon and I haven't been able to improve things since.

This always happens to me, a holiday or lots of social events and I'm there eating and drinking my way off of my diet!

Yet again though I've found myself baffled by weightloss. As you may remember I weigh myself each Monday and have done since the start of the year. In total I've lost a stone, no more, since I've been putting on weight some weeks and then losing it again on another.

This Monday saw me weigh myself and despite no exercise and a diet consisting of far too much takeaway, chocolate and ice cream, I've lost weight! How does that make sense?

I've also found myself so lethargic. So this week I've decided I need to try and get back on track. However this is going very slowly so far. I'm managing to get my diet leaning more towards fruit, veg and health rather than fat, grease and stodge.

When it comes to exercise I've not been able to get into gear sadly. I planned to do my workout DVD yesterday, not a chance. My excuse being I was on the tail end of a cold.

Then tonight it was time to have a brief workout when I got in. Did I? Nope, I pulled on my PJs and put the dinner on!

I hope I can force myself to do something tomorrow, although realistically I have set my sights on a double gym visit this weekend. We shall see.

On the other hand my boyfriend has now nearly lost 2 and a half stone since the start of 2012. He has had a flu bug and run two marathons so I guess it's understandable, but still I want to get figures like that!

I guess there's only one thing for it, I need to stop pigging out and put those new trainers and gym top I bought at the marathon expo to good use! Now if I can just avoid that bottle of wine in the fridge and KitKat Chunky peanut butter in the cupboard...

  1. I can so identify - lost a whole heap of weight earlier this year but holidays and partying mean have put it back on....Err so your pigging out and you've lost weight? Why exactly are you complaining? Better that than eat more and gain more as I have. Struggling to fit into most of my clothes and feel sooo ugly and feeettt! :-( Have started my health kick as I do not want to look or feel like this during my 30th birthday which is in a couple of weeks. Also as I get older realising that I need to show my body more respect and love by not constantly shoving grease, fat and sugar down me gullet. I get that but tell my darn craving for chocolate and curry. Going to have to hold tight cos this is going to be an ugly fight in the battle of the bulge :-O
