Hello world! I have just woken up from a nap, it’s 3:06pm as I start to write this and I just feel that naps are one of life’s little pleasures that we should be able to enjoy more.
I have joined a couple of facebook groups about developing your blog and boosting traffic using SEO and tags etc – and people don’t half post a load of crap right? I’d rather have a smaller amount of organic views etc than beg people to read my posts!
I would say I’ve had a really productive week this week, and you may think that a Thursday is a bit of an odd day to do a ‘weekly’ update on my weightloss journey, but it’s all with good reason. Typically I would start my week on a Monday but by Saturday and Sunday I would binge out of boredom and justify it with “Starting again on Monday”. So far i’m on day 15 of eating / exercise to plan, and I am feeling a lot better within my little head.
So this past week my student group are away from the classroom meaning I had an opportunity to take some Annual Leave. I’ve worked both Monday and Tuesday and then taken three days off last week & again this week. It feels great, it’s a real break that I needed.
Joe’s only day off in a week is a Wednesday and last wednesday we had planned to go for a long walk but it was raining and we were pretty disapointed, however, this week the weather did us proud and we spend two hours walking along Eastbourne’s picturesque seafront. We walked from the Sovereign Centre end of the front, up to the pier and went on a little adventure down by Fisherman’s green. We found a lot of washed up dead crabs and even a dogfish (possibly? Joe thinks it was a dogfish, looked mini-sharkish)
We love wandering accross the beaches and seeing what we can find. As we were walking the sun began to set and the sky turned from a bright blue to yellow, pink, purple and red – it was beautiful. One of my most favourite things in nature is watching the sky change colour and seeing how the clouds are hit by the colours etc.
We walked up and on to Eastbourne Pier, which although it is not what it used to be, it’s still nice for a wander and a great focus for a photo. The gold additions to the exterior pop so much in a photo! We played in the arcades because we are big kids and then strolled home together hand in hand. CUTE.
Joe did not really want his photo taken as he did not have any gel in, but he did let me catch this one, my little love.
In terms of weightloss this week, below is my ‘overview’
The positives 3lbs lost | 4 Boxing sessions | hit 20,000 steps yesterday | a positive outlook
The negatives – Felt obliged to eat an unhealthy dinner on Friday night and it gave me the most awful stomach cramps as I walked home in a thunderstorm | I have a cold!
Goals for this coming week – Hydrate| Prepare meals for the next day | Stay focussed – it’s so easy to get discouraged when the results aren’t showing quickly. I’m currently looking to lose 2lbs a week and it can feel like a long game.
How was your week?
Have you ever visited Eastbourne?
