Weight gain, a small setback but I got this!!!

Over the past week I have gained a kilo!!! Sure, I’ve indulged in alcohol and lot’s of eating out, pizza, ice cream, chocolate, fish and chips even, but I’d been active and the meals that we ate in – I was careful with. Shows how fine a line it is. Also makes me feel so moody and down, because I had reached a mini-goal, and was set to get to where I want to be before our holiday. Now, I’m pretty stressed as I don’t think I’ll get there, or if I do, I’ll have to be ULTRA strict, like shakes for dinner strict, and I prefer to be healthy and nourish my body.

Eat to nourish, Move my body, and Achieve beyond my wildest dreams.

This has also made me nervous about the holiday. Clearly, I am more easily led then I knew, and my determination and will is not what I thought, when I’m tested. What am I going to do while we’re away for a month?? If it was just the two of us I’d be fine, of that I’m sure. But, it’s not. Staying active I feel good about, that isn’t my issue. I love it. My aunty that was visiting was telling me about a yoga app that she said is divine, she is totally in love with, so I may give that a go, I’ll have to double check what it was called, I’ve forgotten. She looks amazing (hi if you’re reading this J ), so if she swears by it I have faith. I know there’ll be long hikes, I can go for runs and we are taking a resistance band set, plus lot’s of swimming and boogie boarding, beach sports etc.

My area of concern is the all bbq’s (usually means wine), convenience food (grabbing something on-the-go) and me not being in control of cooking. When you do it yourself you tailor what you eat to your needs and taste.

I did give the food diary a rest for a week, I don’t think I’ll do that while away. I have eating at home, work etc down pat, but entertaining and holidays I think I need to still be very mindful, and the diary is such a must for me. Which reminds me, it’s winner time… I’ll generate a random number and announce the giveaway winner, and link it to the original post so everyone who entered is notified. Good Luck!!!

New Recipes tab & staying healthy on holiday

This morning I had dream that I didn’t want to go do cardio. I was thinking my legs are sore from leg day at the gym, me chest hurts from last night, I’m sooooo sleepy this morning etc. Then the alarm went off and I’m happy to say I jumped out of bed and just fucking did it! I don’t usually use an alarm but this morning I wanted to do everything half hour earlier then usual, to avoid seeing someone at the gym. From opening my eyes to getting to the gym usually takes me exactly 17 mins.

 

Someone suggested I do a seperate tab for recipes. Great idea, so i’ve added that in. In a month the boyfriend and I are going away, road trip holiday. Going in a campervan and hitting the beaches. Can’t wait! So, the recipes tabs will come in really handy for me too. Don’t want to eat out too muchand blow the good work I’ve done (away for a month), and it’ll be so convenient to have all my faves and go to’s so easy to access. Myself, I do like less talk more recipe in a post, so I’ll try to post this way from now.

We’ve also ordered a resistance band set to take away as it’s light and portable, so I’ll post our thoughts (male and female perspective) on that once it arrives.
