I am a little late in posting this weeks Mumentum as it should happen on a Monday but I am still drowning under a pile of work that I just don't seem to be getting on top of and I was also sulking to be perfectly honest.
When I joined Mumentum I decided I would do a weekly Monday weigh in. I tried really hard last week, had salad everyday (made even nice by the fact for the first time ever I was able to pick the lettuce from my own greenhouse), I ate loads of fruit, didn't have any biscuits, or crisps, and yes I did have a takeaway but felt good about myself as I only ate half of it, instead deciding to leave the other half to re-heat on Saturday but as it was my mum and dad invited us round for a BBQ so I binned the remainder. At the BBQ I had a small burger and salad again and refused cheesecake after. On Sunday we took the kids to the beach and again was very proud of myself for deciding not to have an ice cream and when we ate out for tea I opted for Salmon and veg. So you can imagine how gutted I was to stand on the scales on Monday morning and see that I had actually gained another 1lb and a half, so that's 3 and a half pound gain since starting this. I was majorly upset!
However, today I have decided to stop sulking (I still haven't succumbed to the comfort eating either).
So lets hope next week is a better one. I need to increase my exercise, all I am doing at the mo is sitting at my desk but as I work from home, I have decided to try and at least use my house as a gym - weird I know but a friend of mine actually had a personal trainer come to her house to show her how to use it as a gym - really I am not kidding! I have found the last few days that once I have lunch, even if it is salad and fruit I am having a major crash and can't concentrate on my work, plus I am spending about 16 hours a day on the computer at the mo. So whenever I feel my eyes going, or concentration, I have got up and either done 50 sit ups, crunches which only takes about 10 minutes, or used the bannister's to stretch my legs, the side of the bed to do those dip things for the old bingo wings, and the bottom step to do 100 quick step ups. I also now have taken delivery of my Davina DVD but can't justify the hour it will probably take to do it, but it will be done at some point!
I haven't read anyone elses yet, but hope you are all being slightly more successful than me, and will pop over - if there is no comment from me, it won't be for a lack of trying, I am having huge issues with commenting on anyone elses blog, and some people have said they can;t comment on mine either, so I need to try and resolve this when I have more of that stuff called time!
