I've been strict for 8 of the 10 days. To be fair the two days I didn't exercise and ate badly were days planned by others so I had no choice (well that's my excuse anyway!)
In 10 days I've been to two spinning classes and done my workout DVD three times.
Rushing to get ready for the gym this morning I completely forgot to weigh myself to judge progress.
I definitely feel less bloated, but sadly still feel quite big and my clothes are tight. I'm hoping being strict for the next 10 days in a row will help.
Let's be honest two evenings of alcohol and Mexican food isn't exactly going to help my waistline!
One thing I am pleased about is my love for spinning definitely seems to have come back. I'm loving the new dedicated spin studio in our gym.
Although I've missed the usual Saturday instructor, both classes have had cover teachers so I've really enjoyed trying something fresh and new.
I'm exhausted though, combining the first week back at work with exercise and consuming less calories hasn't been ideal.
Most days I'm struggling to keep my eyes open!
I won't lie the two days break eating Mexican style tapas food and alcohol was very welcomed and I enjoyed it at the time.
However, it's funny how you start to adapt to health again. After two days I was longing to eat more healthily and on buying cupcakes for my team at work yesterday I even stayed away. Whilst they tucked into the sweet delights, I snacked on my grapes! And I wasn't envious.
Even today making a reduced fat cheese omelette for lunch when I got in from the gym, I really enjoyed it!
We plan to go see a scary film this evening too, so maybe that might even help burn a few calories (I'm a complete wuss and jump at everything!)
In the meantime I'm relaxing on my sofa and as sad as it is I'm seriously considering an afternoon nap to give me a boost. After my initial exercise high earlier I definitely need some form of boost before tonight.
Admittedly I've not done any of the chores I planned today, but if I'm honest I'm not getting too worked up, after doing my 60 minutes' worth of spinning earlier I would even maybe say I've earnt it!
