Day 46

Today I'm 122.6 and I am very happy with that.

I know I haven't posted in the last few days, but since I am done with the Beck Diet Solution I don't think I need to post every day anymore. I am happy with my 1 lbs gain because I had the last 2 days off for Valentines and did not exercise or watch my food intake. Last time this happened I gained like 3 lbs. Sooooo WOOOOHOOOO.

I had non diet Soda, Bagels, Takoyaki, Popcorn, Chicken, Chocolate everything and my gain is tiny. So from today back to good food and from tomorrow back to the gym. Back on track, lets get these last 22.6 lbs off and get on with the rest of my life. The next foreseeable binge is on the 13 March for my birthday and I would hope to be at least 114 lbs by then... but we'll see, my losses are never really this predictable.

I had a wonderful valentines with an amazing boyfriend, we had a really nice breakfast, had a fish pedicure, ate nice food and went to see the Descendants. The movie was a little disappointing for me, and I don't know if it was because everyone else said it was so amazing maybe I was expecting more. Also it was a little sad for Valentines day.

Back on track with food and exercise. I cannot wait to lost more of the weight, I can already see it in my body. I can feel getting closer to my desired shape and it feels nice. Just this week I put on some jeans that I haven't been able to wear in a long time :) I have loads of clothes that I would love to wear again so here I come.

I have come up with some NSV's (Non Scale Victories) that I would like to achieve, they are as follows:

- My thighs not to chave when I walk.
- Be able to touch my toes without bending my legs
- Fit into all the cloths in my closet (within reason)
- My belly not to jiggle when I walk
- Run/Jog 5 km without stopping


Day 43

121.6 still :)

I am still happy about this but would really like a little drop tomorrow. I am really looking forward to being in the teens. I still have cystitus bit its a little better today. I again couldn't fully bear the gym again today, so I did some walking on the incline treadmill. Speed 3.2 and incline 21% for 45 mins, I have to say it was quite a workout. Phew. Other than that I took it easy, did some chores around the house and took a long warm bath.

Food was a bit here and there, had a super late breakfast and then just grazing throughout the day. That's something Im also going to slowly get the hang of.

Ah well, lets see what tomorrow brings.

Day 42 Practice, Practice, Practice.

I'm still 121.6

I'm not well this Saturday, I have something called cyctitus and its not pleasant. I hope that it will pass soon. So exercise today was dismal, I just tried to get as much walking in as possible. I went to a protest today against ACTA which I feel very strongly about. How dare they dictate to us what we can or cannot see, but more than that I fee that if ACTA, SOPA and PIPA passes that the Internet will never be the same again. The creativity and vitality will be sucked from it and it will be rendered to a television 2.0. I think that will be a sad day.

I was disappointed at the protest, not in numbers, but its content. I was embarrassed to have attended for there were many things said that I fully did not agree with such as the word Fascist being chanted often and the police force (whom was very nice at the protest) being verbally abused. These are not things I agree with and I did not come to protest about and I felt made the protest seem much more like a circus and I feel will not be taken seriously.

Practice Practice Practice

So its the last day, and that means I'm 42 days into my diet without a relapse, I have to say that I am very proud of myself up until now. Keep it up! Well, this chapter actually doesn't have much in it. It basically says keep doing what you have been doing. If you slip up, fix the issue and re read parts of the book. That's it, over.

The Beck Diet Solution Review

I have to say I enjoyed the book, very structured and I like to stick to a plan like this. It takeled every angle that I can think of with regards to weight loss and really makes you think in depth of what you are really doing and if you can continue achieving it.

I am not sure if I am in the target demographic of the book, maybe its better suited to some one whom has more weight to lose. I did feel that some of the tasks were unnecessary. However even if only one tasks has helped m, out of the 42, then I think it was a good purchase. I am glad I bought the book and followed the plan. I would recommend it to others, but I do think it will work for a certain kind of person rather than everyone.

Day 41 Make a New To-Do List

I'm 121.6 :)

All is going well this Friday, finally the end of the week. I haven't lost anymore weight but that's ok, Ive had a good loss this week already. I'm glad its the weekend and I get a bit of a break. I have Monday and tuesady off work because of valentines. I'm going to spend it with my boyfriend who is awesome.

I went to the gym this morning and did Spin class as well as body sculpt. I again am proud that I went but  I have to start giving a bit more into my workouts and really pushing myself. Just going to the workouts really isn't good enough any more. Also I'm going to have to learn how to refuse cake. At least I know how to limit it to a very Small amount, but we'll see.

Make a New To-Do List. 

Oh goody another list!! I love making lists :) ! Well, this is the second last day of the book and its just trying to prepare you for the rest of your life. I will make a list of daily things to remember to do and a list of things that have to be completed daily - weekly and then another spontaneous list.

Daily List:
Be mindful of what I am eating
If I over eat don't think that Ive blown it and compensate with exercise
Try and eat as much 'Healthy' food as possible
Monitor My food

Do fun exercise frequently
Weigh daily is possible
Discuss my weight with my weight coach

Take measurements
If weight creeps back on review the maintenance plan and adjust accordingly.
