FFF12


This  has been a bit of a topsy turvy week.  It started out terribly then improved as the time went on.

I was doing some decluttering in my craft room/ guest room when Bear found some chocolate D1 had left behind.  I messaged her saying I'll put it in the freezer for next time she comes to visit.  Lets just say this is where things went wrong.  She told me I could eat it if it was gluten free, very dangerous words for a chocoholic. I checked the ingredients, to my surprise it was gf.  Woohoo!

  I continued to declutter thinking one little bit won't hurt, its been ages since I've had decent chocolate.  One little bit lead to two little bits, then before I knew it someone had snuck in and gobbled the whole lot down. Oops!  It was so worth it though and I thought this would start my cravings all over again, thankfully it hasn't.

Then Saturday night Bear cooked a delicious lamb roast which we enjoyed with a glass of red wine.  He is not a big drinker BUT suggested we have a second glass.

We had a packet of chips stored away which we had forgotten to bring out for little J.  So guess what, we gobbled those down enjoying every mouthful.

I thought what have I done after all that hard work for the past 11 weeks, blown it in one day eating all this stuff.  On Sunday I was back on the straight and narrow sticking to my healthy eating plan. Phew!

For the rest of the week I've done so well.  More than doubled my steps Monday as we went shopping with heaps of walking.  Did two water aerobics classes plus a tai chi class as well as all my steps each day.

Wednesday I had a session with my osteopath who is really pleased with the way my back has progressed.  He said it must be all the water exercises and encouraged me to keep it up.  I have to drop  my class using  weights though, as I've now damage my other rotator cuff and bicep.  I think three sessions at the gym is enough at the moment anyway.

Managed to avoid any sitting binges as we have been busy, busy, busy all week. So overall with the bit of a hiccup to start the week off it's been very successful.  Also the scales have gone down half a kilo. Yay!

Sorry I didn't visit everyone's FFF for last week, will endeavour to this week hopefully.

Now that its heading for summer in the northern hemisphere where most of you are living. Please remember to slip, slop, slap, seek and slide. Having a melanoma is not a fun thing to go through.   It only takes a few minutes to apply sun cream, so do yourself a favour and avoid skin cancer.
Have a good weekend everyone.

  2. Great job Lindy! One day of slipping seemed to motivate you to do really well all the other days and kept the cravings away. It's not a bad thing to have a little pleasure along the road.

    1. Thank you Ronnie. I probably harp on the sun cream each year but don't want to see any friends going through a melanoma.

  5. I thought maybe Bear was gonna get ya for eating the chocolate. <> Glad you got a little treat though especially because I know that gluten free diet is really a bummer sometimes. Congrats on all the healthy exercise!

  9. Well done Lindy, keep up the good work. You did well to get back on track and dieting can be monotonous without a treat now and again.

  10. ah one little bit of chocolate and a little packet of chips isn't anything to beat yourself up about. as long as it's not EVERYDAY! LOL. take care of that rotator cuff. I suspect I might have over-stretched my shoulder ligament too. i'm hoping it's not a RC too.

    1. Oh no hope you don't have a RC as well, its the pits. Especially with two. Good luck!

  11. A little treat shouldn't be considered a set back. Especially since you did so well the rest of the week. I wish I was around when you all started this contest. I could really use some inspiration. Like you said, summer is just around the corner and I am the heaviest that I have ever been. Time to diet and exercise... and use sunscreen (see I was paying attention).

  12. Sometimes you just gotta indulge yourself. And then the chocolate is gone and you can't eat 17 bars cause you only had the one. That's the best kind of indulging for me... once it's gone I have to be back on the straight and narrow even if it's only because it is gone. And I try to enjoy it in the moment, appreciate it, and then get back on track... I used to wallow and beat myself up for moments like that, but life is meant ot be lived!!
