Project Bridesmaid #5

So in about a year I am going to be a bridesmaid for my little sister. This is just the kind of goal I need to start losing some weight and getting healthier, which all ties in nicely with my quest to be a calmer, happier and healthier person.

I have decided to vlog about my journey as that will give me a visual reminder of where I’ve been and where I am and as it’s something that makes me rather uncomfortable it will also help to keep me in check. Plus it’s always good to push yourself.

During my journey I will be getting to try all kinds of new products and sharing my experiences of them with you.

Today was my second weigh in having been on The Jane Plan for two weeks and I have lost 1lb, so that’s 4lb in total over the two weeks on Jane Plan and 9lb since I started Project Bridesmaid.

This is exciting as it has bought me into a new stone bracket, that number in front is now lower and that makes a big difference.

It is also exciting as I had I didn’t have a great week personally, nothing major just lots of bits really building up on me and making me feel incredibly low but I didn’t turn to food like I normally do. I was enjoying what I was eating so much it didn’t even occur to me.

What it did mean was that my exercise took a big hit, I lost all motivation, all my ‘get up and go’. Whenever I feel this way that’s what happens to me, which is silly as the exercise makes me feel better, but it is what it is. Pleasingly I’m back on track now.

I’ve still been finding it really convenient, and really tasty. Fitting into my life hasn’t been hard at all and I’m really enjoying the food. I’ve finally allowed myself some of the sweet afternoon snacks and they do not disappoint, a small bar of dark chocolate, yum, a buttery biscuit, delicious. Great taste, small portion, the thing I need to learn!!

I have really struggled having weekends off, I can see my weight go up on those days, which is why I shouldn’t weigh myself everyday and also proves that I am not ready for weekends off. I’m finding the weight gain stressful and thinking of meals to cook a chore, I have enjoyed the break from the foody decision making. It has been nice just to pick up something from my delivery safe in the knowledge that it’s good for me.

My tips from this week would be to start your Jane Plan journey following the plan 7 days a week, then after a while maybe switch to weekends off, when you are in the swing of things. To find a way to drink enough water. Some days I have not been and I feel lousy for it.

My fitness tracker from Terraillon has once again been a great motivator, to see how little I was doing when I didn’t make the effort was what forced me out of my little circle of self pity and got me out there exercising again.

It has been tough for me this week but I’m really pleased I still lost weight, normally this type of week would have me reaching for the chocolate, and the wine, and probably the pizza too, so I’m really pleased I didn’t.

Disclosure – I have been sent my products free of charge in exchange for my honest review.
