Weekly Meal Plan & Weigh In: July Week 4

End of July already, but at least the sun is making itself at home! Last week was a pretty good week for the most part. I used up all my weeklies at the weekend thinking I wouldn't use any for the rest of the week, but since my birthday was Tuesday it was rather silly of me to think I would skip dessert that day. And I ended up having 2!! So I was over my weeklies a bit and ended up gaining a pound at my Thursday morning weigh in (I think mother nature played a part in it too).

Weekly Meal Plan & Weigh In: July Week 3

For the first week in a long time, last week I felt properly in control. Things were still fairly stressful in work, but instead of allowing the stress to consume every part of my life I made a conscious effort to concentrate on being good to myself and try to leave the stress at work. I focused on my meal plans and enjoying my time away from the office more than I have been over the past couple of weeks.

Weekly Meal Plan & Weigh In July Week 2

I'm a little late again this week, I've a bit of a cold at the  moment and yesterday I just had no energy by the time I got home from work. My stress has not really reduced but I feel like I am managing it a little better and feel like I can finally get my head back in the game properly. I've been messing around for far too long, and its not helping anything. Knowing I am letting my health slip back is just adding to my stress.

Weekly Meal Plan July Week 1

Another week over and I am still working at focusing on the positive. It was by no means a perfect week but I am working towards it. I would say I had more on plan days than off plan days which is the best I can do at the moment. I am getting back into the habit of meal planning and proper shopping lists, which I had gotten a bit lax on in June and that is helping get me back into my healthy lifestyle rhythm.

Weekly Meal Plan: June Week 4

Last week was not my best week, but there were definitely more good days than bad so I am taking that as a win. I feel like I am focusing too much on the all the negatives from the past few months and letting the guilt win. So for the next few weeks my aim is to focus on the good.

Weekly Meal Plan: June Week 3

Since my last post, things have been a bit up and down. I had a couple of weeks where I felt I had my control back. I was following the No Count plan for a few days a week and it was really working for me. My plan had been to avoid the scales until I felt a bit better but that hasn't worked so well for me, and at first it was telling a good story. Then things took a turn again the past 2 weeks, and I've been all over the place again. My weekends were pretty manic, and until this sunday we hadn't done a proper weekly shop in about 3 weeks. So I was grabbing things on the go during the week and trying my hardest to eat as well as possible. The weekends were my usual, stop trying on Friday morning and then wake up Monday feeling both guilty and a little hopeless.

Weekly Meal Plan May Week 4: Back From a Break

Last time I post I had decided I was going to take a bit of a step back from things and I took a bit of a bigger step than intended. The couple of weeks that followed were pretty tough. I have had a lot of stress in my life this year and I think I was fooling myself into thinking I could manage. It all got a bit on top of me and I needed a bit of time to myself. So I took a few weeks off blogging. I couldn't come back on here repeating the same thing again and again, as it wasn't helping. I just couldn't face it. I was still posting my usual food posts on social media, but not as much and I felt like I was just going through the motions a bit.
