Ok so I still have a lot of weight to lose before I am pre-first pregnancy. I put on over 3 stone in my pregnancy with Little and managed to lose over a stone of it before falling pregnant again! I’m back down to my pre-second pregnancy weight but would still like to shift this last 2 stone. So whilst I am not in love with my body, I’m not horrified when I catch a glimpse in the mirror. I am learning to become body confident and this is just the start!
If you’re a regular reader of my blog you will know I did Slimming World to lose weight after my first pregnancy. Whilst I know it works for me I don’t think its maintainable. It is highly processed and I really struggled come the weekend. I got stuck in a rut and it became a chore so I needed a change!
Food is my biggest love. After my children of course! I find it a sociable thing and I enjoy making and eating food. But the truth is I don’t know much about food other than the slimming world way. So on this journey I hope to create a positive relationship with food, learn about the foods I’m eating and discover and try new foods.
I got my inspiration after reading Lucy’s article in the Daily Express and her story really struck a cord with me. So I have re-downloaded My Fitness Pal and charged up my Fitbit.
I’ve got a long way to go but I will do this!
My meals for this week are:
Monday – Tuna Pasta Puttanesca
Tuesday – Homemade Spaghetti Meatballs
Wednesday (Today) – Out for my sisters birthday
Thursday – Slow cooker cheesy chicken & rice
Friday – Chicken and chorizo pie
Saturday – I’m going to see Craig David!!
Sunday – Mothers Day so haven’t planned a meal incase I get treated 😉
So yeah I probably haven’t chosen the best week to start my new journey but there is no time like the present. I will just need to up my exercise to make up for all the meals out!
