Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 50 – #icandothis

This is it, the last day of term!

It has been a fraught week, with not the most regular of eating, and a few slips, but I have been good over the whole!

This week, I didn’t get as many photos as I was really tied up with work, and home stuff, so when I ate, I was hungry, no faffing around with the photos! But here are the ones I took!

And this week, I was surprised to learn that I actually …

Lost another 1LB!

Well, that’s set me up well for the start of the holidays! I will be at a wedding tomorrow, so no doubt there will be rich food, today we have a shared staff lunch which I intend on enjoying, and we will probably be eating en route to Birmingham tonight too!

And…don’t forget it is the end of the year… the chocolates from my pupils are already accumulating! Don’t worry, I won’t eat them all, but any Malteasers… they’re MINE! (3 boxes already!!!)

Hope you had a healthy week! I will leave you there Peeps!

Catch up next week!

Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 49 – #icandothis

Another week of tiredness, and still conscious efforts made to eat better.

Yes, there have been naughty snacks, and that Pizza meal happened, but here’s most of what I consumed last week!

 

Was it worth it though?

Well, it was indeed!

I lost that 1.5lb!

Yay!

Feeling more motivated despite the tiredness now!

Have a wonderfully healthy week Peeps, and when I log in to chat about weight next I’ll be euphoric because it will be that la\st day of school for the summer! One week to go!!!

 

Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 48 – #icandothis

Another week of good eating, but also filled with cake and indulgences!

It was Lil Man’s Birthday so how could I not make and eat cake, and refuse him the foods of his choice?!

Breakfasts 

 

Lunches

 

Dinners

 

Cake and Mango Lassi

 

But the biggie… the weigh in…

I’m  a little disappointed in myself… but I knew it was coming, however, since I weigh in during the week too to see how I am going, I know it is not as bad as it could be…

A 1.5lb gain.

Aw man!

Still, I can only try my hardest to lose it an a little bit more again.I am so tired from work at the moment. The end of the academic year is a killer. It is so easy to reach for comfort snacks to fuel the last few weeks, and I know I have been doing that.

This year I have also been falling asleep much earlier each night, and I am not fighting that at all. If my body says sleep, I am listening, not even finishing the chapter I am reading.. and that’s saying something!

Sheesh! I must be growing up! Actually listening to my body instead of forcing myself to do things because I feel I need to do them!

Right, I am off to try and be a better eater this week… (she says, knowing pizza is on the cards tomorrow night… Eek!)

Hope you had a healthier week than me Peeps! And here’s to a loss next week!!!!

Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 47 – #icandothis

When I’ve been good, I’ve been really, really good.. when I’ve been bad, I’ve been really awful!

There were fruits, veg and salads… there were chocolates, cakes and ice creams!

And it won’t end there… we still have to celebrate Lil Man’s birthday properly, s there will be a meal out, and CAKE obviously too!!!

But what about my weigh in??

Well, tragedy struck when I realised on Wednesday, that my scales had died! And even my emergency pair were finished too! Dang!

I had to fit in an emergency pit-stop to the shops at lunchtime to pick me up a new pair ready for this morning! (Run = exercise – good thing!)

But with a new pair of scales you can’t be sure they are fully calibrated to be the same as your last. As I couldn’t hop from one pair to the other to see whether they weighed me the same, I was dubious. But my new all singing all dancing Weight Watcher scales (sorry Slimming World, I love you but you haven’t got your own scales!) tell me I was the same as last week!

I’ll take that! Better then these ones telling me I was actually a heifer!

So onwards, and hopefully not upwards!!!

Have a great, healthy week Peeps! I hope to report a loss next week!

Ritu’s Healthy Eating – Week 46 #icandothis

wp-1492120543707.

I seriously think I need to get me a new incentive! It’s been another really BAD week! I can’t stop eating all the things I shouldn’t eat.

I’m tired, and reaching for snacks and sugary fixes to keep me going.

Four weeks until the holidays, but that is four weeks filled to the brim with home visits, report writing, and assessments, alongside getting things ready for next academic year.

Sure, to look at the pictures, you’d think I’ve been really good. But that is just the half decent stuff, not the ice cream, the chocolates, the packs of crisps, the strawberry laces etc…

And to top it off, I weighed in and the results were dire!

I wrote that sentence above last night in anticipation for this weigh in.

Actually, rather than put on weight, I stayed the same as last week. Surprising as during the week, if I have sneaked on the scales, it looked like a gain was going to be coming! (Lesson to self, stop weighing yourself willy nilly!)

So, Yay! to not putting on weight, but I really must sort my diet out! There are so many healthy snacks and sweet things I could eat, I just need to get some more energy and get prepared!

I have been upping my water intake as well too, partly because I had slipped, and also it has been ridiculously hot here, for us Brits anyway! Temperatures hitting over 30 degrees Celsius, and trying to function in a  mainly non-air-conditioned school is not easy!

Right, must get on with getting ready for the last day of the week!

Have a wonderful Friday Peeps! And I shall report back next week!!!
