Week 6 Still the Same as last week but HAPPY

by Rhonda on 17 Jan 2014, 08:53

Just finished week 6 of this new way of life and still loving 5:2 although my fast day yesterday was the worst since starting this journey. I ended up eating more than I should have and felt compelled to fall back into old habits - I am owning up to it so will be better prepared for Monday's fast and will take measures to ensure I don't fall back again next week.
Training for the 10k is helping and I am enjoying the challenge.
So, stayed the same this week, which after yesterday's blips I am happy with the result today, but I suspect I could have been a bit lighter had I not succumbed ... anyway, chin up and carry on - 5:2 is great and I know it :)

It happens to us all, these blips just show us that we are human. It also gives us the incentive to do better next time, and maybe tweak a few things to make it achievable.
Training for 10k wow. My experience is that I sometimes don't lose when exercising hard. Carorees has posted about exercise and weight loss. So this may be a reason woth considering.
I am also aiming for about 11st something. Pre children weight.
Thanks Caroline - great information there :)
