We are doing the week 8 weight in a little early – 2 days early to be exact. Why you ask? Well we have been really strict with the diet all week in a bid to shift some of the weight we put on last weekend when we had a bit of a blip due to a bereavement in the family. But – and here it is – we are actually away tonight at a charity fundraiser – so will be having a few drinks and making the most of our first child-free night AWAY in years. In fact it may actually be our first child-free night away since our wedding night in 2008! That said, we are still going to try and make as many good choices as possible. I have just made myself a bowl of strawberries, topped with 0% fat raspberry yoghurt, for a filling and healthy breakfast! We are also taking the kids out to lunch before we go, and they have asked for Harvester which is great as I can have the pasta dish I love that comes in under 500 calories! Oh and of course the salad cart!!!
So it may seem like cheating a little, but we have decided to weigh in today, record our results from 5 days of eating clean. And then we wont weigh in again until Monday 9th March. I think doing this will yield not only more positive results, but a more positive mental attitude! Yes, I said it PMA!
You know the low you sometimes experience if you don’t see a loss, especially when you have been trying so hard. It can affect your motivation for the rest of the time. So hopefully by weighing in today we will keep our motivation for the rest of the time til we weight in again on 9th March!
