With one week to go, a bit of Festive #mondaymotivation to help keep me on track - I’m being bang on it this week as I really want to hit my #christmaswish to be at the bottom of my target range as I am planning some treats for Christmas Day and will be definitely employing Flexible Syns and my second wish was still to be in target for the weigh in after Christmas. The first picture was a works Christmas Party about 10 years ago, my ever-present black cardigan as an attempt to ‘slim me down’ and a nightmare shopping trip (as always) to find something to wear. I truly believed that I couldn’t do anything about my weight and that it was just bad luck - I’d been hit with the ‘overweight gene’. The second picture was on a festive day out recently with the hubby, annoying him by stopping everywhere saying ‘take a pic of me next to this tree, in front of these lights etc etc’ - the change is physical but mental too, I control my food issues now, my happiness isn’t dependent on shovelling mince pies down my throat (although the desire to do so is still there!!). This time of year is harder than most - temptation is everywhere, my willpower is being tested but is currently holding strong!
2017 has been an absolute whirlwind for me. Sometimes I sit back and think just how much we have managed to change our lives and how different I actually am now. Whatever the scales say today I know that I can look back this week and say I have enjoyed time with friends, family and work colleagues but stayed on plan when I can! This is my last weigh in this year, as I am a nurse and work shifts I am off Christmas this year but am working the days in between (and all over new year) that our locals groups are open for weigh in. So unless I can find somewhere on Friday 29th then I will not being weighing in again until 3rd January 2018!! Where I will be ready to smash it, again! The next two weeks will be tough, but I know in my head what I'm doing and when I'm going to be off plan, however I also know that this will result in a gain on my next weigh in. But that's okay too. You have to relax sometimes! #sw#swuk#swmafia#swfamily#swinsta#swfood#swmyyear#slimmingworld#slimmingworlduk#slimmingworldsupport#slimmingworldfollowers#babystepssw#ttcjourney#swcooking#swweighday#swweighin#2017weightloss
One of my go to breakfasts - @alpro go on pot topped with raspberries, this one is my favourite flavour ❤
I am obsessed with clementines at the moment, they're so sweet and full of flavour 👌
