Today has been a very busy but also a very productive day. We spent the morning blitzing the garden. Unfortunately nobody in this house is a massive fan of gardening so it tends to get left and left until we have no choice but to do it before the garden takes over completely. I was impressed by our gardening skills I cut and strimmed the grass then swept all the pavements whilst Gareth and Harry cleared away all the rubbish.
After lunch I decided it would be a good idea to full-blown blitz the house from top to bottom. It was very much-needed and overdue and meant that we all stayed active for the majority of the day. The gym was closed due to it being a bank holiday so I wanted to stay as active as possible. In fact I went over my step goal on my Fit Bit. The house and garden are now sparkling although with 5 children I can’t imagine it will stay that way for long!
Breakfast today was a slice of wholemeal toast topped with mushrooms and poached egg. Exactly what was needed. I woke up feeling really hungry this morning and this hit the spot.
For lunch we had a BLP sandwich, it was supposed to be a BLT but we ran out of tomatoes! Instead we had bacon, lettuce and peppers and it was very tasty!
Tonight Gareth asked if I would make my meatballs so we had homemade meatballs and spaghetti. Instead of my usual massive plateful today I had mine on a tea plate. I just didn’t want to over eat without the need. I felt like I had already eaten quite a lot today and didn’t want to over eat for the sake of it.
Overall Thoughts and Feelings
I haven’t stopped today and in general I’m really proud of how I’m doing with regards to exercise. I am trying hard to remain active even on the days where I don’t go to the gym. I had a sneaky weigh in this morning and it showed that I had put on a little bit of weight. I was hoping all the work in the gym may have stopped me adding weight however I’m guessing the alcohol and chocolate cake I had on Saturday has had an effect but I enjoyed it and compared to the amount of stuff I’ve turned down that’s not too bad!
Weigh day tomorrow …. eek
