Ritu’s Healthy Living – Week 12 #icandothis 

Well well well!

It’s been another roller coaster week.

Holidays. They tend to do that, you know!

I have been killing my step count via my fitbit over the last few weeks, which has been amazing! But this  week… put it this way, even my Fitbit knows I’ve been relaxing! I think today was the first day since Monday that I hit my daily target!

But I have been reading, and enjoying time with my parents… and obviously that has affected my eating! I have tried to be good, but it’s hard not to indulge when you are back home with Pops and Mum… she’s a great cook! and then you slip in the odd meal out, or cup of tea and rather large scone… oops!

But I have been good otherwise! See my achievement below!

Tonight, I knew the plan was for the family to order a chinese takeaway. I came prepared and thought I would try a Slimming World ready meal, available at Iceland, of Sweet and Sour chicken with plain rice. That saved the syns for a few nibbles from the starters!


It was ok… but I may just stick to eating the real deal next time!

Other food this week, looked a bit like this, including homemade Weetabix/oat carrot muffins!

And my results this week?

1lb off!

I got this from Slimming World yesterday!

Yes! I reached the target I set with Slimming World, of 10 stone!

So that is another 1lb off, making 13lbs with Slimming World and 18lb in total over the last 12 weeks!

Seriously, I am not sure how I managed it, but i did!

Now the ideal will be to get down a fedw more, to 9 and a half stone. But even if it is just below 10 stone, I would be happy! 10 stone is definitely my happy weight. I can deal with being 10 stone!

Really I need to do some toning, the mummy tummy is still there, a little emptier, a little flatter, but still a pouch sitting there, above my bikini line, taunting me.. but then again, there are great control pants out there!!!

I have no idea what next week will bring.

a) the in-laws will be away for 6 weeks, from Monday,  so there is a lot of household stuff that I will need to take charge of, at their place.

b) I’ll be rushing around so need to make sure I don’t resort to convenience food

and the biggie

c) it’s Diwali tomorrow, and there will be all manner naughtiness, food wise… temptation that I won’t be able to avoid!

But at least I’ll have fun, eh!!!!

Have a wonderful night/day Peeps!!!!

Until next week, when I let you know the effects of the above 3!!!

    Keep it up Ritu you are doing so well! Remember if you eat too many sweets today the main thing is just make sure you don’t beat yourself up ! Just be stricter with yourself tomorrow …Monday. ❤

    Terrific news Ritu! You must be so pleased! I haven’t set a final target yet, but am close to doing so. Depends how I do at the end of this second 12 week course.
