After last week’s maintain, which I was actually very happy with, I went away from group with the mindset to make the most of what I knew was going to be a partly bad week. With my 30th birthday on the horizon, and my driving test on the same day, it was either going to be a day of double celebration, or commiseration! (It did end up being a double celebration though – yay!). We hadn’t planned anything in particular for my birthday, but we did end up with a KFC, a Chinese takeaway, and a trip to Frankie & Benny’s within a few days of each other! I also ended up with two (very tasty!) cakes, so yeah…
Other than those three meals (and cake of course!) I was actually using the “on plan when I can” method. Until I weighed myself on my home scales. And saw that I had gained around 4lb. Eek. That’s when I decided it was time to get on with EESP! I did so from Sunday up until weigh in on Tuesday evening. With planning ahead though, I actually quite enjoyed it this time around, so I’m sure I could do it weekly for one or two days if I feel I need to in the future.
I did only post a few meals on Instagram this week due to my half rubbish week, but here they are:
So weigh in. Knowing I would most likely still have a gain this week, I went to group with an open mind, and I would take what I got. The line had been drawn, and I was back on it already. Stepping on the scales, they showed a 0.5lb gain so I was pretty pleased; I had a fabulous birthday and enjoyed myself, and only gained half a pound in the end!
It means I am now 3lb away from target, and I am going to get it this month!
