After a lovely bank holiday weekend down in Wexford with my family I was very nervous to step on the scales this morning. I wasn't as good as I could have been and I did drink a lot of alcohol and eat a lot of junk. It was a tad disappointed but not surprised when I was up 3 pounds this morning. The first thing I said to myself was I enjoy the weekend and enjoyed all the food. I didn't over indulge for no reason or emotionally binge eat, it was a great weekend and I treated myself! Maybe a bit more than I should have.
I did cook slimming world meals and go for runs but I think the main reason I gained this week was due to the Bulmers I drank and only discovered that each can contains 9.5 Syns each!!!! I don't think the chipper chips and two slices of pizza helped either haha. OH or the Eddie Rockets last night!!! I am hanging my head in shame now haha!!!
What I can take from my gain this week is a clearer mind that I can't over indulge like that. I can have one day of it maybe but certainly not a full weekend. I am starting fresh today and with only 3 days until I fly to Tunisia I need to be very good because we have a week of all inclusive food and drink ahead of us. I don't want to be too strict on myself and I want to enjoy my holidays but I also need to be aware of what I am eating and make the best possible food choices.
At the end of the day a gain is not the end of the world. I makes you realise that you can't go on eating crap and expect a loss. Today is a new day and a fresh start. There is no point beating myself up about it or feeling guilty about it. I need to rethink and get organised. I want to try and do the SP plan for the next few days. This is just eating speed and protein foods. Weight loss isn't a short term thing, it's a lifestyle. You need to make permanent changes to your life and diet to maintain a healthy life. Yes, treats are allowed but everything in moderation.
To be honest, I don't feel great today. I had Eddie Rockets last night while catching up with friends and I just feel a bit bloated today. It isn't really worth it. It may taste amazing at the time but an hour or two later, when your body is trying to digest the junk food, it doesn't thank you for it.
What I want you to take away from todays post is, it's ok to have treats but in moderation, if you have a gain don't judge yourself and make yourself feel guilty, just learn from your mistakes.
I have set up a Facebook page where you all can join and share ideas and inspiration. I see so many amazing pictures of your meals on snapchat I thought it was a great idea if you could all help and inspire others too. You can search "The7amClub" on Facebook and you should find us all there.
Have a great week and stay happy and healthy.
Love you all
