WW Week 6
Week 6 - Weight Loss -0.5kg/1.1lb
I have some news this week, I have a pair of grey cords, I love these cords but haven't worn them for ages as I couldn't get into them, my news is, I can finally fit back into them comfortably as well, I love it.
This week I went on the treadmill 5 times, upping my walk speed to 3.7mph and my jogging speed to 4.1mph - I average about 200 extra calories burned per session and I am enjoying it.
I will admit I didn't have the best of weeks this week, I've been very busy with Ruby's school activities, helping out at the 100 days at school party, the valentines day party that I helped organize, I am a room parent and it's been a busy week, I've missed the odd breakfast, which is so unlike me, and I've had the one too many chocolate bars this week and a visit to Spencer's Jolly Posh Shop (an English & Irish food store) didn't help, although I was very restrained, I only got a small bag of Cadburys buttons and a packet of hula hoops but still, they are not WW point friendly.
Although I've been good with the exercise I wasn't expecting a great weight loss so I was very pleased with a 0.5 kg/1.1lb weight loss, and this loss takes me to and past my next goal of losing 7.5% of my body weight which equals 5.5kg/12lbs yeah for me I get a treat - a new top here I come.
What I learnt this week on weight watchers was - sometimes you just have to go with the flow and if you want that bar of chocolate have it, no point in depriving yourself, but on the other hand you can't expect a good weight loss - you are what you eat.
Back on it for week 7 - I'm going to be extra good as I'd really like to lose another 0.5kg as this will take me to under 67kg so this is what I'm going to aim for.
The couch to 5k program really ups the running time this week, I hope I'm up for it too.
Favourite Meal - Turkey Meatballs and spaghetti - 9 WW points - my homemade very delicious meatballs point up to be 2 points per ball, I had 3, plus 2oz of cooked whole wheat spaghetti - delicious
Favourite Treat - a small bag of Cadburys Buttons, oh and a dark chocolate Milky Way, ok whilst I am admitting it, I did also have 2 Jaffa Cakes (which I naughtily didn't point up) see I did admit I had one too many chocolate bars this week.
