So a week on!
Current weight: 106,9kg
result since start -1,1kg
I ran 2 times last week for a total of 12km and had 2 5km walks in addition to normal daily movement.
I didn't drink alchohol on weekdays and while it was tempting for a second to buy while shopping I didn't miss it on the evenings themselves. By eating healthy through the day I left myself space for a small snack in the evening so I don't feel as if I'm being punished. So I don't really feel as if I'm giving up a lot. I do keep an eye of things. I made picanha this weekend and invited some friends but instead of bread and garlic butter I had a salad and sweet potatoes with it.
That evening there was a lot of beer with it. But on friday and sundag I had less then half of what I did before. Snacks (crisps) were at a third. I feel there are gains to be made there.
Combined with running and getting some points back for that my week as a whole was within weight watchers budget.
So I'm pretty happy with my progress so far. My package from Huel was just delivered (the box is damaged so I hope the contents are ok) and I'm curious how having that for breakfast will impact the rest of the day. For next weekend I'm going to see if I can do something with home made snacks that aren't just empty calories.
A little bit of gain this week. Honestly I expected it. I helped out with a trainingsday for a charity run and spend 30 hours in a gym*. We also started the pre-checks for our last frozen embryo placement. So that doesn't help for healthy eating and sleeping well.
On the bright side, I did two runs again. The week was fine food and alchohol wise. The problem was purely in the weekend. Maybe another factor is that I normally run on monday but because I overdid it on saturday (through rain and hail) I was still tired. I just got back from running and I still feel it in my legs. So that might account for some difference.
So I'm not beating up myself. I'm counting on having one or two of weeks like this a bit on when the actual procedure is done and we'll find out if it worked.
