So this is the end of my first week doing the 12 week plan. I didn't realise how nervous it would make me to switch from slimming world, where you don't have to weigh anything and I only had to count the "syns", to weighing and measuring everything. I felt constantly like I was doing this wrong every day and double/triple checked the calories in everything with constant workings out, worrying every time I ate anything that calorie counting wasn't going to work for me and I'd end up with a huge gain today.
I'm hoping now that my first week has been a bit of a success, that I'll relax and trust my counting skills next week. I didn't do much exercise this week either as I've been struggling with this quite severe pain in my side/back which has dwindled my exercise down to a bit of a walk at lunch time and one 20 minute ride on the exercise bike.
In my first week I have lost 1.4lbs I am now 15st 0.4lbs and I just can't wait to be in the 14's. I was hoping this would be what happened today, but not quite - at least it's something to look forward to next week! And as I'll be back to upping my exercise, I hope I'll get a similar (maybe slightly bigger!) number next week.
And hooooray! It's almost the weekend! Happy Friday everyone!
