So here’s the thing: I know it’s a new Slimming World week for me from today. I stayed to class last night, left feeling great and had a fairly healthy evening meal (no post-group takeaway for me!) but all day today I’ve felt really uninspired. I know after last night’s loss and hitting my first stone I should feel great, and raring to go. So what gives?
I don’t want to psycho-analyse myself too much, but I suspect part of the problem may be complacency – having reached that first goal my subconscious wants me to slack off and have a rest. I think that this is something I will need to overcome, even though it might be difficult, as too much complacency when I reach my final target will send me soaring back to where I started. Now I have left that weight behind I do not want to…
I have received my kick up the bum! All my half-hearted attempts and messing about have resulted in a weight gain! That is not what’s supposed to happen! It was only a 1/2lb gain, but I’m annoyed with myself for letting it happen. That being said, I am going to try and draw a line under it. This morning is the beginning of a brand new Slimming World week, I’m still aiming for my stone award next week, so I’m getting back on the horse (as it were) and riding off into a healthy week.
Now if you’ll excuse me, it’s time for me to Zumba.
Well I was as miserable as sin (or should I say syn??) when I woke up this morning having munched my way through the whole scan bran cake from yesterday and just felt bloated and uncomfortable. Then I got up and on with my morning and about an hour later nature took its course and I feel fantastic again … In fact I feel a lot less hungry today and brighter and more positive.
I had a fantastic paella last night where the only naughty thing was the chorizo and there was only a tiny amount of it in the paella. It was scrumptious … unfortunately I did not take a photo but this was how I made it;
One large onion really finely chopped up, three cloves of garlic and about 6 thin slices of chorizo which works out at just under 30g.
