I hope you had a good week of weight loss. I’m always happy to be back on the forum, even I didn’t do well in week8, I lost 0.2 kg in week 7 and put on 1kg in week 8.
Last 2 weeks has been difficult. I mean, I find losing weight in the 2nd stage of my weight loss journey is more difficult. I guess it’s because my body’s used to my reduced calories intake. According to my fitnesspal, my daily calories allowance is 1200, I do find it difficult to stick it. So I’m not denying I often went over the limit, plus I haven’t been good with water intake, didn’t exercise enough due to bad weather. But the biggest problem I had, to look back, was not putting my wellbeing first.
Just like many of you, I’m a busy mum, last two week, before school holiday started, I tried to do as many things as possible. Well I’m well of the fact unless I look after myself and feel good, I bring less happies to others around me, I forgot about this putting my wellbeing first principle.
This week, my target is to remind myself everyday: putting my own wellbeing first! I feel happy when I do the right thing, to me, it’s eat healthy, drink 1.2 L water daily and exercise 150 minutes weekly.
"Women in particular need to keep an eye on their physical and mental health, because if we're scurrying to and from appointments and errands, we don't have a lot of time to take care of ourselves. We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own 'to do' list." - Michelle Obama
Wish you all a good week!
