As I told you in my previous update:
I will be getting weighed after 10 days in order to get right back on track!
These 10 days, I'm afraid I was kind of naughty. I missed certain foods, didn't have much time or energy to prepare my meals and to top it all off I had a wedding this weekend!
Although I have moderated what I eat, I still feel guilty about not sticking with the diet (and for taking some sweets). Apart from the fact that last time I lost the weight, it was mainly due to the drip!
These 10 days, especially this past week, was extremely hard for me to prepare my food, first of all, I was exhausted all the time, I have been so busy, that the time I had for preparing food was either spent sleeping or relaxing.
Anyways, let's check out the choices I had when I had a little energy to experiment with food!
|Egg Sandwich and Tea- Yums|
|Barley Tuna Salad|
|Pasta Day- Balsamic Chicken|
|Who said sandwiches are boring?|
|My Hubby's experiment for me for my Dad's birthday meal|
|'Tis the Season for Grapes!|
|Dinner at the Hubs|
|My Favourite experiment to date! Healthy Stir Fry Barley & Chicken with peas and eggs|
|Barley Tuna and Egg Salad|
So let's see how I did these 10 days!
Why hello there, nice round figure!!!
Yes, I have lost weight it appears! I was quite surprised that although I sinned a little, I still lost the same amount of weight I usually lose in 2 weeks!!! To top it all off, I'm down 8.75 kg already!!!
I know last time I didn't tell you my target weight, however, today Marika told me how happy she is with my progress and has officially told me I am half way there!!
I also had a little heart to heart with Marika about my tiredness and motivation. She suggested I try to eat more red meat since I might not have enough Iron intake.
Also, I have been receiving a lot of nice compliments about my weight loss, since I am currently at a stage were I really look like I have lost a lot of weight and a lot of people are noticing it. Marika warned me that I might get too excited and maybe shut an eye.
To be honest, I have done that and have admitted it to her openly. Marika gave me this really good tip to help me out... Since I'm still not 100% happy with my weight, I have to always bear in mind that I have a target which I want to reach, so I have to stay positive and cheer myself on to reach that target!
