Week 45

Week 45

Current weight 12 stone 8.25 lbs…which is roughly 79.94 kg or 176.25 lbs

Oh dear. The past week has again not been great and I foresee the following week not being much better! For me the most frustrating thing is I know what the issue is but am struggling currently with a solution to it, is this now the reason why people put weight on, am I really at this moment in time powerless to prevent it. Being able to label the cause of it to be stress last week did not help me as I hoped it would. I am just very busy with work at the moment and although I am striving to relax and do the things to help me switch off, other things are slotting in and causing the stress to remain. Do I actually feel really stressed out? No, I don’t but I know that I am showing the symptoms here, and others could feel the same way and perhaps not need to eat…as eating does not really help in some respects, there is no ah that’s better, because it really isn’t!!! I still want chocolate and crisps.

But part of the purpose of the blog was to give me somewhere to think about me, so positives this week, because I think we can lose sight of them. So, most importantly I am still under 80 kgs. A minor positive but still one, to hold on to. Next, I have had my pre op appointment in the past 7 days and so should be having my foot surgery soon (although I do wonder if this fact is in itself causing stress!). Next I do like to cycle in the summer when I can (and my foot is happy with cycling thankfully) and last Sunday I managed 10 miles with an average cadence of 89, sorry some of you won’t know what that means, but basically I was managing to on average do 89 spins of the pedals every minute, my target set by a mate is over 90 and two weeks ago I was at 78 so I can pretty happy with myself there! Finally, I caught up with one of my old friends last weekend for dinner with her and her family, it is nice to switch off and see old friends we don’t see often enough, before we both had kids she and I used to go to the gym 6 days a week!!! Not sure I would want to do that now even if it made me super skinny ha ha, and no I do not belong to a gym before you ask.

So, plans for the week ahead? Watch those cravings and as they lessen know that things will get easier. Summer is coming, off on holidays at the beginning of July and time finally to really relax and do some great cooking! I did forget to share this last week, I like to look at my resting heart rate on my Fitbit and last month it was down to 63 as an average for the month, the lowest it has been in the 3 years I have owned this specific Fitbit. We won’t think about what June will be…

So, have a great 7 days everyone, and what happens over the next 7 days…happens, it can only get better, right?
