Routines and reassessing

So cool!

I've lost another 1 1/2kg this week and though my 'official' weigh-in day is Tuesday I was so excited I had to update my weight loss ticker . Last Tuesday (15th) I lost centimetres but not kilograms so I've now updated my stats on the right side bar. 

The 3km/30 minute walk 3-5 times a week and the 3 meals/2 snacks a day is becoming a daily routine. 

I'm having trouble with the water consumption during the cooler/wet days so will need to go back to my 500ml sport bottles that I can put anywhere as I have a tendency to knock cups over or forget they are there when sewing/crafting, and inevitably something ends up wet that should remain dry, so I stopped having water handy to drink.....wrong decision. 

Multigrain bread has mostly been replaced with different types of grainy baked crackers as I can eat the same number of those with a similar or greater fibre intake but less energy value and I eat more veges/fruit to replace the kj's that would have been counted in the bread. Looking back on previous attempts at a healthier lifestyle made me realise I wasn't consuming enough protein and that's what was making me tired so now I eat a larger range of vegetables and  am careful about carbohydrates consumed.

Now that I'm past the 'plateau' stage, where even eating all the correct foods and exercising your body extensively doesn't make a difference, I'd like to leave another 3kg here before I attend DD's Uni grad in almost 2 weeks but I'll have to be careful that's not too much too quick as 1kg/week is the recommended level.

  1. That's a brilliant result Robyn... no wonder you feel so excited. It's very good.

    Interesting what you say about needing more protein. I read that somewhere once but never really looked into it.

    It's always good to have something to work towards, so best wishes in reaching your goal in 2 weeks' time :D)
