On the fitness side I can report a continual plodding on, I’m not happy with this I want to be bursting with desire and bouncing all over the place but life keeps getting in the way. So I’m going to add an aerobics class into my weekly schedule (maybe two.) I am in desperate need of a new DVD player as ours will only play a DVD from start to finish and you can’t jump from bit to bit, otherwise I’d be doing your Ultimate Target but I can’t get past the intro! This is the not-so-good news
On the Jenny Craig diet I am very pleased to announce a weight loss of 3lbs for my first 9 days. (This is the good news Davina!) I am now 10 st 3 lbs, a weight I can’t remember being since way before the girls were even thought of! All of my diet food is absolutely scrumptious and so easy to prepare, for example for dinner on Thursday I’ll be eating Prawn Korma and rice and I can add as many plain vegetables to it as I want!
I had another consultation with Angela this week and we went through the different kinds of eaters that there are, I identify myself as a social eater and therefore am more likely to put on weight to join in with everyone else. When I’m out I can go a bit crazy and enjoy all of the food on offer with the excuse ‘It’s an occasion’ or ‘it’s a party’
I’ve been going through my Jenny Craig book and I measured out a 5oz glass of wine so I know what I’m looking for when I do treat myself at the weekend, needless to say, my wine B.J.C (Before Jenny Craig) was way over 5 ozs! Another trick I have started to implement when I get my chocolate craving is to make myself a hot chocolate, oh and I spotted that when I’m allowed to add 1 fat to a meal I save it and have two cubes of chocolate instead – Get In!
Yes, I have suffered hunger on occasions but I have compensated with water or tea and I have got by, luckily you eat something every three hours so it’s not that bad. I have been as strict as possible and only allowed myself one 5 oz glass of wine on Friday night and another on Saturday night and best of all I can see the results. I am hoping to reach 10st 2lbs by Friday and having been offered another two week trial (which I jumped at to accept) I may even see the number 9 again. Now that would be amazing!
The MuTu system I can sing my praises from the heavens above! The exercise routines fit into some of my days and what’s more they have worked. My tummy has tightened up. It’s amazing the changes our bodies go through to accommodate babies for 9 months and the MuTu system really helps turn the clocks back. If someone asks you if you’re pregnant and you’re not, you probably have muscles that could do with the MuTu system ;) Click on the MuTu badge in my sidebar and it’ll take you straight there to sign up!
So Davina, I’m right on track with my weight and slightly lagging on the exercise but come Friday I’ll be back up with the best of them, however I did walk round the Hobbies and Craft exhibition at Bluewater with Domestic Goddesque (that must count as movement?) and I played in the snow with the girls on Sunday and made them a snowman.
