I really tried hard this week and something I made an concerted effort to do was to make sure I ate plenty of all the right things. I upped my protein and my fruit and veg.
I also had the weekend to myself; no trotting off to see the boy and so I could eat exactly what I wanted.
Finally - exercise. I went to the gym once and I also pounded the pavement twice (5km both times). It was hard going, I've not been running outside since last year but I surprised myself with how well I got on.
Have I built this up enough yet?....
Okay, okay - I lost 5lbs. Finally - a loss worth shouting about! Half of that was holiday weight (I weighed in the day after I got back from hols) and so it's not really quite as spectacular as if I was coming at it from a standing start.
Don't get me wrong though - bloody delighted!
