Today was weigh day and I felt soo much better getting on the scales than I did last week, I have been 100% on plan and although haven’t been to the gym as much as I should have i have been making a conscious effort to be more active in my day to day life.
And it showed on the scales with A 5lb loss. It’s not the most any ones lost in a week but im not competing with anyone. As long as the weight is coming off then im a happy bunny!!

First weigh day being back on plan and my motivation techniques



Yesterday morning was my first weigh day after being back on plan. I was nervous and impatient as i wanted to see results. I have stuck to plan 100% and exercised so i was hoping to see a good loss, even though ‘aunt flo’ ¬†(sorry for TMI but she does make an impact on those scales ladies!) has made an unwelcome appearance. I stood on the scales and i was literally shaking (I’m not even exaggerating, you know that feeling you get when you’re a kid, you’ve done something wrong and you’re waiting to get found out, THAT). I had lost 2lbs.

Initially i was disheartened, i was hoping for a bigger loss than that, but when i stopped and thought about it 2lbs is still a loss. And this is only the start of a loooonnnnggggg journey that i have in front of me. Its a journey that i want to do safely and its a journey that once I’ve reached my final destination, i never want to go on again. If that means taking the slow and steady route then so be it!

I have made motivation jars to help me stay on track. I took two baby food jars (cleaned them out first, obvs!)one was empty, one was filled one with 65 little pegs, each peg represents a pound that i have to lose, each pound lost means a peg¬†swapped from the ‘pounds to lose’ jar into the ‘pounds lost’. It helps with motivation as its a visual representation of how far I’ve come.

i have also been using instagram a lot. I show my meals, snack ideas and i look at other peoples profiles for new ideas and inspiration. there are so many slimming world instagrammers you can’t help but feel motivated.

(my insta name is @kerryswift23 if your interested in a nosey!!)

Anyway i hope everyone has a good week, leave a comment if you can give me any more motivation ideas or anything else!!!!

Weigh day- buuuhhhbbyyyeee first stone!

I did it! 1 stone down only 6 more to go! I was majorly happy when I stepped on the scales this morning as I had a few days where I wasn’t feeling great so although I stuck to my syns I didn’t eat as much superfree as I should have, and I also had a whole night completely off plan when I went out for tea, so to read that I lost 2 pound was a bit of a shock.

Im still doing the green tea challenge but can’t really tell if it has helped or not so I will carry on for another week.

Today has been a really good day, besides the result on the scales, I took oliver to Tescos to pick up a few bits and put him on the pepper pig roundabout ride thing, he absolutely loved it! He was bouncing and shouting (in a good way). Im so so glad that I videoed it because he just looks so happy!


At Tescos I bought a face mask as I have had a few spots recently, so I will give that a go tonight and let you know what I think!

When andy got home from work i headed to the gym and had achieved a major personal goal, hold on to your seats people……. I ran for 10 MINUTES!!
Now for most people I know that this is nothing, this is like a warm up for normal people, however a month ago I struggled to run for 2 consecutive minutes. So for me, 10 minutes is a massive achievement! I stayed on the treadmill for 30 mins, did 30 mins on both the cross trainer and the exercise bike and then faced my fears and ventured into the weights area! I only used the machines, i am no where near brave enough to venture into free weights territory but again this small step was an achievement.
According to the 3 cardio machines I was on i burnt a total of 600 calories, this is 6 frozen freddos!! So now in celebration I am going to go and eat 6 frozen Freddos. Joke. Although the old me (from a month ago) would have thought nothing of that! In reality im going to go and pamper myself with a bath and face mask.


Night all!!
