I took a little break last week as I am in a bit of a blogging/reading rut and hadn’t lost any weight. My motivation was not at it’s highest when it came to sharing and the journey, so I simply opted not to post.
Fat Friday is a weekly blog post tracking my weight loss and fitness journey, used to keep myself accountable, keep a record of my progress, and share hints & tips that have helped me. To track my progress, or read my previous entries, click here.

Work has been busy the past couple of weeks with a lot going on. With everything going in in the world, work is busy and while busy is good and makes your day go quicker, it is also a little draining. It’s been a little while since I had any time off and I know there is the best part of a month until I am going to London to see the girls but I am really looking forward to it. It’s not a bad thing, I still like work and the role I am doing, I am just quite tired and think the slight break from blogging is helping compensate slightly.
Work is giving me a good structure to the diet. I have got most of my routine down by this point. I know when I can and can’t eat to get the best out of myself and my day. I’m starting to realise what foods keep me fuller longer, and starting to realise that I can go quite long periods at the beginning of my day without eating, and without feeling like I am missing out because of it.
Emma is away at the moment, which means that I have been eating my main meals at work. Partly because I can’t be bothered cooking for one at the moment, and because the food I have bought in work has let me eat things that Emma and I don’t usually eat. I like the food we eat a lot, but we have the tendency to make the same stuff over and over again so it’s been a pleasant departure.
I want to start exercising again. I feel unfit and unhealthy and know that if I and to start shaking that, and of course lose some serious weight, that I need to start moving and taking fitness seriously. My back is a lot more settled even if it isn’t perfect and I know that I need to stop making excuses and just work out more. It will make me feel better mentally as well as physically, and I see what effect it has on Emma when she has/hasn’t been and know I could be helping myself more.
