It seems whenever I am watching my food intake, I can lose weight easily and it stays off. As soon as I start to exercise it all falls to pieces and the weight just comes back on - whenever I exercise I scoff my face and turn to all the foods that I had cut out of my diet! I have had some absolutely shocking food moments recently and it's time for things to change (again!).
28 July 2010 - a record weight of 84.2kg, the heaviest I have ever been!
25 October 2010 - 80.2kg... Cue 'No Junk November'
3 December 2010 - 77.3kg! At this point I decided that if I had lost 3kg from purely cutting out all the crap in my life, that if I really watched what I ate that I could lose even more...
11 March 2011 - 73.1kg!!! A new record weight... This time one to celebrate! Size 10 and loving it, I decided to start exercising...
And that's when things went wrong. Since then I have been gradually GAINING weight to my current 77.2kg. I may have been happy with 77kg earlier this year, but now looking at myself, I feel just as bad as my 77kg as I did about the 84!
I don't know if it's stress about my upcoming exams, or whether I am just bored, but I have been eating ice-cream, biscuits, hot chocolates, pasta, pasta and more pasta! My diet is a far cry from what it was in March! I start off well with breakfast and lunch, but when dinner comes along all bets are off! I hear myself saying "why are you eating that?" but I just don't listen. It's like I'm out of sabbotage myself.
So, inspired by my disgusting diet and increasing numbers on the scales, I started fresh this morning! I ate small, healthy meals, took the dogs for a 30 minute walk and went for a 20 minute run. Tonight I will eat a steak and some vegetables and then clean my teeth so that I won't want to eat anything more!
