Lucy Brown Slimming Down (Day 7)

Image

Back to the Exante shakes and soups today. After 4 unrestricted days. I have chosen today and tomorrow as my diet days this week as I’m working on Thursday and I know I wouldn’t be able to cope with fasting on a work day. This is a shame because it means we will have to delay Dallas Tuesday to Thursday this week.

I have resisted weighing myself since last Wednesday. But I have weighed myself this morning. I am only a pound lighter than day 1. However I am in no way despondent as I can see that I am lucky to have kept a pound off due to my curry and cupcake consumption on the unrestricted days. nb. I rarely eat cupcakes as a general rule but I made some for work this week and had to test them ๐Ÿ˜‰

I am feeling lighter so I need to find a tape measure to check my waist measurement. Having eventually found a tape measure I can confirm I have lost 2 inches off my waist. My waist measurement has gone from a mammoth 43 inches to an admittedly still to girthy 41 inches. This is however very encouraging progress ๐Ÿ™‚

I went to four gym classes last week I expect that will have contributed to my slimmer waist. I have only been to one 45 mins pilates class this week but I can’t fit any others in with college and work this week. ย I am however doing the school run on foot at every opportunity. Only using the car when logistics dictate.

I also need to switch to using the stairs at work 100% of the time instead of most of the time.

I do have a challenge today in that I am meeting a friend for lunch. My plan is to exercise damage limitation and opt for something low carb, high protein & high veg with a black coffee.

I have embarking my my diet days this week with the belief that I have taken the power back and I am actively slimming down to my first goal of a dress size 16.

Are you also slimming down? do you have any hints and tips to share?

Tissue in the wash causes further backlog in washing jobs

Who left a Tissue in their pocket? Was is Nick the lovely husband (with a track record for not preparing clothes properly for the washing pile, rolled up sleeves on work shirts and socks in balls are two repeat offences), Amber or Sienna shades of Brown? (doubtful, they usually prefer slime-ing clothing their’s or anyone handy) or could it have been me? (possible, I have had the sniffles recently and my favourite brown shorts were in the load). Let that be a lesson to you Lucy Brown as you wash the more tissuey items ย of the wash for a third time!

ps. bear with me my adventures are going to get more exciting in the next couple of weeks… hopefully ๐Ÿ˜‰
