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…

R3D6: An inside sort of day

Yesterday was pretty appalling where my period was concerned, and I had to get up a few times during the night. But luckily I now have better period protection (check out my post on it here) and so it’s a lot easier to deal with. It just made me feel a bit meh and the…

R3D5: The time of the month

Started the day feeling sluggish and I knew I’d have put weight on because I have my period… and last night I ended up having some TOTM snacks! (Time of the month…) It wasn’t horrendous but I had some chocolate and rice crackers. Overnight I felt like my period came on full force. I have…

R3D4: Drinks night!

Every Thursday since lockdown I’ve been hosting a virtual drinks evening with my girlfriends. It started as just a random idea to connect with some friends I hadn’t seen for a while, but has grown into a tradition. We have a WhatsApp group, pick a theme for how we are going to dress (tonight’s is…
