Back on track…

Okay, so hopefully we are getting back on track – both me and DH had a 800g loss this week yay! So I still have at least 10kg or so to go until my goal and DH another 5kg…

We were pretty strict last week, but still indulged in a block or two of dark chocolate despite saying we would ban all treats… Our organic shop around the corner sells raw chocolate – 20g blocks with a little buckwheat, honey and a few raisins in it which is DIVINE…so we did have that twice sigh…oh well, as long as we are still losing, I don’t mind if it is slow.

We are back on the bike! Yes, from today we will be cycling daily in the mornings – hopefully this will kickstart faster fat burning – time will tell.

In the meantime, I just have to make that berry pud this week as my sister is visiting and it will be our monthly treat – so will still post recipe here soon…salivating just thinking about it.

Cheating: Okay time to confess.  I have cheated to have a slice of Woolies Cafe cheesecake a few weeks ago.  It is my best and mostly made from cream and cream cheese right?  So as far as cheats go, not too bad.  I would like to be able to have this now and then once I am at my maintained weight.  DH has a samoosa. So not too bad so far.  It must be said however, that poor eating habbits are like a very slippery slope…as soon as you feel imbued with a false sense of confidence around your weight loss (in that you start to believe it is a permanent state that will not be affected by what you eat)…S.T.O.P and T.H.I.N.K. You WILL GET FAT AGAIN IF YOU START TO EAT UNCONTROLLABLY. That is just a fact.

As mentioned, the one great thing about eating LCHF is that you really dont feel deprived.  So it is sustainable. And I think, there can be small deviations in time, in that you can probably manage the odd sugar treat now and then in the form of a slice of cake etc…just not every day!!!

In the meantime, I am enjoying the feeling of being lighter and being able to fit into clothes I haven’t worn for ages…as we head towards our goals, the new focus will be on firming up and dealing with flabby skin and getting fit!
