Take that fat!
Week 1 of my #drop30 challenge is done.
Admittedly, the first week has only been 5 days as I want weigh days to be a Saturday...
Weight lost: -5lb
Overall mood: upbeat and proud :)
Weeks left until I am 30: 29 weeks
I started the challenge first thing on Monday morning; whilst this might have been a mistake if I had been at work (Monday mornings are pretty blue when you work, I find) I am still on the last few weeks of maternity leave, and I found it motivating to begin a fresh week with a fresh attitude.
What did I find tough?
Firstly, I craved bread. A lot. White, crusty bread with butter. Which I find odd because I don't regularly eat that, lol! But I really wanted some by Wednesday.
By Wednesday I was starting to feel a bit of a difference; I didn't *feel* so bloated (but with so much weight to lose that doesn't change the appearance of my tummy). I also found it tough not having a hot chocolate, or a snack when out and about. It does make things feel a little dull.
Another challenge was not eating the same as Luke; he isn't on a diet, so has free reign to eat and drink what he likes. That's been tough to endure, though he has tried to moderate what he has to make me feel better and be supportive, lol.
What was positive?
I tried some new food this week, including vegetarian korma, vegetable chill (not a fan of chili normally), and ham and sweetcorn chowder, which I enjoyed.
I also ate regularly throughout the day. Since becoming a mummy, I've spent the last 4 months eating nothing all day and then filling my face in the evening when Jake was asleep.
I also noticed that before I was taking on calories every day which I didn't think about; that hot chocolate from Starbucks when out for a walk; the sandwich I bought from the supermarket instead of making my own... It goes to show that I really wasn't thinking about what I was eating and drinking before. I had stopped taking any care of myself.
Overall? Onwards and upwards!
