The Big Journey: Weekly Update


Yes, you heard it, I have actually budged some of my weight - all-be-it only three pounds, but I have actually got rid of something! I am so so so happy with myself. Three pounds really doesn't sound like a lot, but it is to me when the first two or so weeks of your diet you don't lose anything (even though you're trying your god damned hardest).

It's strange that I've lost this week, simply because I have been very... 'loose' with my diet. This week I have not been on any runs - I simply have not found the time, or I feel really under the weather and running is the last thing on my mind. I know this is really bad of me, but still being in the early stages of a diet the word 'routine' isn't one I am familiar with. However, I have kept up with my walking, which may have helped budge those three pounds?

In terms of eating, this has also been very flimsy. I can't remember once this week where I have sat down and eaten a plate of veg with a little bit of meat - I still start the day with scrambled eggs or cereal, and have a small lunch, but then I have been having less for dinner as well. For example, last night I had scrambled eggs again. It's not that I'm trying to starve myself because I know that's what a lot of you will be thinking (and I am very aware that is NOT how you lose weight), but I'm simply not hungry enough for a whole meal - it would be a waste of food, and my time, if I cooked it all and only ate a few mouthfuls. 

I did have one huge meal this week - I went home for the weekend to work, and mum honoured me with one of her roast dinners. It was bloody delicious, and I had the full works - chicken, stuffing, yorkshire puds, potatoes, carrots, sausage. AND cheesecake for dessert... It was bloody delicious. Like I said in the first post about me losing weight, I wasn't going to deprive myself of foods I love, and boy do I love me a good roast dinner from time to time! 

So what am I going to do this week? For a start, runs are going to start back up. I've discussed with Jack (who I run with) and we think it's a good idea to go running three weeks in a row and then have a week off - it'll be like working towards that week off, and for someone who really doesn't like exercise much (aka me), having a week off every so often sounds very appealing to me. 

It's hard to say what's going to happen with food - I'm going to eat a lot more fruit. I really like bananas, but I stopped eating them for ages because I had a couple that gave me bad stomach pains. I have eaten a few in the last week, and I forgot how delicious they were - those, and strawberries *heart eyes emoji*. Mmmm, I could go for a fruit salad right now!

And there's a little update - don't be too disappointed in me that I let the diet slip a little bit, as I did still lose a little bit of weight! I am over the moon that some weight is starting to budge - I am also very aware that if I did running and ate properly more might have come off, but let's just ignore that and pretend it isn't true.

If you have any tips for home exercises that I can fit in around my already busy schedule then PLEASE let me know! Home exercises would suit me much more than going for a run!
