Looking back on this week I think thing could have gone a lot worse given that I had some bad cravings at times. The only day I'm a little disappointed at myself with is yesterday. I'd grabbed a bacon sandwich from one of the trucks as we walked around the boot sale because I was really hungry and hadn't had a chance to eat before we left. That isn't the best food, but it was delicious and the calories would have been fine because it was a combo of breakfast and lunch anyway. This was at about 11 o'clock, so far so good. But! Then we went home and dad decided to have Sunday dinner at about 2:30 because my sister had to leave to go back to Cardiff (she was visiting because of Father's Day). This leaves me with two problems because Sunday roasts are always a bit higher calorie anyway, but then there was no way I was going to last the rest of the day without eating and I had used up all my calories, so I ended up going over. This meant that instead of losing a little bit more (I was at 3.3lbs lost and was hoping I could get a little closer to 3.9, not likely I know, but being able to say 10lbs lost in 2 weeks would have been great!) I went up by a bit. Don't get me wrong, 3lbs is still a good loss, but I couldn't help but think I could have done better.
I'm hoping things will be easier over the next week as Aunt Flo has officially left the building, so I'm hoping for less cravings to deal with. My water was fine this week, and my calories were on target (bar yesterday of course). I walked to the supermarket on Thursday to get ingredients for my next batch of freezer meals, so I made my 10,000 steps goal on one of my days off, which is an unusual bonus for me. I normally exceed my steps when I'm working (5 days a week) and then don't sweat it on the two days I'm off because it all evens out.
