MumenTum week 1

Last week I decided to become involved in MuMenTum to try and encourage myself to tone up and lose the excess pounds I am gaining and to prevent me gaining anymore. So how has it gone?

Well I have decided I will weigh myself every Monday so last week i did just that> My main problem is I am beginning to put weight on and want to stop it, and I am in desperate need of finding my fitness again and toning up, so I was semi happy to see I only had 8.5lb that I wanted to lose to feel better.

My Davina DVD has arrived in the post this morning (my friedn swears by them so I thought what the hey and if someone sees me flinging myself around the front room as they drive up the road, then they shouldn't be looking!). I intend (please note the intend) to do this 3 times a week.

I have also decided that I will get into running. me and running don't mix, never have done. The town I live in is surrounded by a horseshoe of park called The Stray. it was left to the people of the town by some rich gentleman 100's of years ago so can never be built on as in theory every resident owns a certain percentage of it. My secondary school was built right on the edge of it and on those horrid miserable rainy days, the bastards use to make us run round a portion of the Stray, I never even managed to run one side of it, let alone the other 3. The other night I was driving by that bit of Stray and have set myself a challenge - One day I will run it!

On Friday my Avon lady also delivered my tummy trimmer - lets see if one I actually use it and two if it does anything for me!

Food-wise i have been really good all week, watched what I ate, made sure I had slightly smaller portions and hadnt snacked on biscuits etc. Thursday night though I ended up working through the night to meet a deadline and hit the biscuit tin about 4.30am as I was starving. Then all ay Friday I was so tired, I felt like I was having an out of body experience and reached for every type of crap you can imagine and down the gullet it went. I finished the day off with a curry and wine.

This is why I should not be surprised that I now have 10.5lb to lose but I am gutted! I feel really angry with myself about it, and am so busy with work that I don;t even really have the time to write this but want to keep up with it, so god knows when I intend to do my Davina DVD, run, tummy trim and work!

I WILL get there and I WILL lose those 10.5lb, Hopefully the rest of you ladies have had a better week and here's to hoping I can do better for next week!

By the way Dianne at Working Mum of 4 and a few others, I am not ignoring your blogs and have tried more than once to comment but I am having blogger issues. Whenever I try and post as a google account I can't so I apologise, I do read, i do want to comment but I can't.

Hiya

That's super that you only have 10 pounds to lose.
I need to lose about 4 stone.
I can so relate to the bit where you reached for bad food when stressed as I have spent 6 months doing that and it has really really added up.
People could have easily thought I was pregnant in the dress I wore to cybermummy but I am not.

Thanks so much for joining in. I hope we will motivate you.

This is interesting. I've seen a few people on Twitter talking about Mumentum (great name :-)) I'm doing the Thinking Slimmer slimpods, so it will be interesting to see how results compare. I have about 10lb that I want to lose in time for getting married!!! xXx

Even though you didn't do as well as you wanted to this week, at least you are now keeping an eye on your weight. I just wish I had taken control before I had gained far more than 10lb.

You can and will I'm sure take control once again and make those healthy choices, it's not easy I know, but we are all here to support each other.

Hope you have a good week :) x

Taking control and having a plan is half way to losing the weight. Good luck x

My word if I was working through the night I dread to think what I would of eaten.

Your very organised and have everything set in place to have a good week. Good luck with the running, something I would love to do but I may have black eyes.

I so wish I only had 10lb to loose but even small amounts can take a lot of effort to budge.

Have a great week and say hi to Davina for me ;-) x

p.s I had bother with leaving messages before I just changed my google password and re signed in.

I can sympathise with eating with stress. I am currently on bed rest awaiting surgery and I am dreading how much the pounds are going to pile on as I am so comfort eating right now. But 10lbs isnt too much and you can do it! Good luck!x
