R3D16: Small things

Well at least it didn’t get any worse overnight! Weight: No change, -1.7kg in total. Post loo: another -0.2kg, so -1.9kg in total. Going to go hard this week as I want to hit a target by Saturday. This isn’t recommended as such but I’m that kind of competitive person who doesn’t like to lose….

R3D15: Oh dear

Well I knew I shouldn’t have had the chocolate ginger biscuits last night! I guess I’m that person who always just thinks they can go hard at the last minute (deadline this Saturday; it’s Monday) and I’ve always been like that. Oh dear! Weight: +0.7kg, -1.7kg down this round. I need to lose 3.5kg by…

R3D14: Slow progress

Well after my chocolate cookies yesterday it could have been a lot worse! Weight: +0.3kg, -2.4kg overall. Last night stayed up really late talking. Which is quite a change, as usually T goes to sleep before I do. It was nice, like old times. Then I fell asleep for about an hour and then I…

R3D13: A quickie

Argh! I deleted my post! So I’ll have to rewrite it. So it will be brief! Weight: Finally a drop! -0.5kg, -2.7kg overall. Just under 6lbs. Pretty sure I erased that today! Lunch: Big green salad, the usual. Although I did have a piece of B’s garlic bread. Sue me! Exercise: Arms! I’m getting better!…

R3D12: Friday night

Felt so allergic waking up this morning. Got up “late” as B and I usually have a lie in, in this new normal… Then realised I had a last minute meeting in my diary which was actually sent to me 5 mins after it started so I managed to join pretty quickly, all the while…

R3D11: Plugging away

Well, I was sure I would have managed better yesterday but I woke up, weighed myself and… no change! Gah! I also feel super hayfevery (itchy nose and eyes) so that’s annoying. I seem to be stuck around this same weight or thereabouts. It’s annoying! Weight: No change. -2.2kg for this round. Then I went…

R3D10: Up (and hopefully down)

Well that wasn’t a successful weight loss day! Gonna have to do better today. Weight: +0.2kg, -2.2kg from this round. Not so good! I suppose that’s what banana bread and constant snacking will do… Breakfast: Skipped straight to lunch. It’s just so strange right now timings wise, I don’t have to get up early and…

R3D9: Banana bread is not on plan

Given the amount of snacking I’ve been done lately, I’ve managed to lose weight so that’s something. Still not enough! I need to go a bit harder over the next couple of weeks if I’m going to hit my targets. Weight: -0.4kg, -2.4kg since the beginning of this “round” (last week). I haven’t really been…

R3D8: Week 2, or 6, or 8

It’s another week. Our sixth in lockdown and for our family that’s seven I guess, because we went into lockdown a week early. Strange to think we’ve been doing it so long. Weight: A miraculous -0.5kg! -2kg from start of round. Could be better, could be worse. Also I’m finishing my period so I guess…

R3D7: Resisting temptation (or not!)

Seriously – trying to diet during lockdown is like fighting a battle where the odds are stacked against you! My neighbours just brought round two massive slices of homemade cheesecake… It’s insane. Weight: -0.3kg. Could be better. Could be worse. Breakfast: We got up really late (it’s the weekend!) so I just had an apple…
