Ritu’s Healthy Living – Week 14


Week 14 already!

I have tried to be really good. Maintaining my weight last week was hard, but I was glad. Now to see if I can roll a couple more lbs off!

I have done the usual, a mixture of eating really well, and also a little eating naughty. we went out for lunch to Pizza Express. I tried to be relatively good, but I didn’t skimp either. I am trying to lose weight, yes, but that doesn’t mean that I stop living!

My plan is that I am really sensible during the week, and I weigh in on a Friday morning. This means that I can relax, just a tad, on the weekend. We may have a takeaway, or eat something a little richer at home, but it gives me the week to get back on track, and it has been working so far!

Even Hubby Dearest has been eating some of my creations, or slightly adapted versions!

I still haven’t got on track with exercise, but my bike had been at my in-laws house so my mum-in-law could try it out. I got it back yesterday so I will attempt to get on my bike, so to speak, a couple of times a week, at least! I think I am at the stage where I have reached a little plateau, weight-wise. 10 stone has been my good resting weight the last few years. a weight I can maintain pretty well, if I keep my mind to it. To lose a few more lb’s, to keep them in the weight bank in case of accidental slip ups, I need to try a little more physical activity that is proper exercise, not just the day to day running around!

And well, after my weigh in yesterday, I was awarded with this…


Oh yes!

Another 1lb off!


That takes my cumulative total to 19lbs! I am secretly amazed, and extremely proud of myself!

    You should be proud! That is over a pound a week, a nice steady but not too fast pace. Great job!
