Weigh in. Faffage.

Another bloody week has passed since I updated. I remember when I used to crack a blog off most days! Admittedly that was when I worked for someone else and I was chained to a desk 8 hours a day and finding a sneaky 20 minutes every day wasn't a problem.

Now that I work for myself that extra 20 minutes is spent in bed, reading a book, on the phone, looking at holidays and reading other blogs. Or my fave - general faffing. I've discovered I'm quite the expert.

So what's been happening avec moi. Well Mad March Mayhem (MMM) is still underway. Admittedly there have been a few slip ups along the way. The first four days were stellar; the weekend, not so much. TB and I went out for dinner and that involved wine. Although no pudding, but a heap of booze. On Sunday we were at his folks' for tea. The meal wasn't so bad but I did eat lots of bread and butter with the soup and pudding was apple pie and custard! I'm not that mad about fruit puddings or custard and so I would normally have just had a tiny bit just to be polite but before I knew what was happening it was served up before me! I suppose I could have left some but I didn't. A few other naughties slipped in too. Some tablet, a choc hob-nob, some baguette and some crisps.

Yesterday and Monday  (back home by this point) I really struggled. I've eaten about 5 Vimto ice lollies and most of a big bag of boiled sweets over two days. Not good.

That does sound like quite a few negatives. But let's look at the positives.
  • The meals I had a choice in were all pretty damn good.
  • I pushed for healthier options when eating with TB
  • I did a 10 mile bike ride
  • I did the 30 day shred video (yes, I know it was just one day)
  • I played squash for 1 hour and 20 mins
  • I went to the gym yesterday
  • I walked lots on Saturday during the day
I weighed in this morning, 8 days after the first weigh in. I was hoping for some sort of loss as last week's numbers were brutal. I'm delighted to report I lost 3.75lbs. Huzzah! At that, my dear readers takes me back down to the weight I was at the very beginning of the year. Honestly, nine weeks of faffing (see!) and I'm in just the same place. Good grief!

Starting Weight: 200.5 pounds
Current Weight: 200.5 pounds
Weight Loss This Week: 3.75 pounds
Total Weight Loss: 0 pounds

I NEED to get into the 13s. STAT. I've not been in them at all this year. Poor show Love Cat. Poor show. They are only 5 pounds away. I got away with a loss this week. I need to screw the nut and have a fan-bloody-tastic seven days. I'm having a really quiet weekend (well, busy seeing lots of folk but I'm not drinking) and so there is no reason why I can't.

Onwards and downwards mes amies. x


  1. Yay - muchos congrats on the weight loss hon!

  2. FAB loss - well done you.

    And eating tablet? Isn't it the LAW if you are Scottish?


  3. I'v been faffing about with my weight loss too. I think that since before Christmas I'v lost maybe four pounds. a LOT of ups and downs. Trying to maintain a downward trend at the moment! Well done on your loss!


Go on then, spill.
