Slim Down Sunday Meme - Week 1

OK, so it's technically Monday morning 00:30am here in NZ and I should be in bed sleeping, however, I want to get this post done. (otherwise I won't)

So last week I confessed to wanting to lose 10kg (22 pounds) because I don't want to die of a heart attack (due to my genetically high cholesterol).

So my goal is to lose 10kg / 22 pounds

Week 1 - how it went:

So I have no idea of how much I weigh right now because I did not weigh myself. Why not? Well, one, because I don't have a working scale in my house, and two, I had no motivation to weigh myself and feel depressed. All 3 kids have been sick and is still recovering, so I thought it wise to stay away from anything else that could be a challenge ;)

HOWEVER, I triumphed here:

I resisted the urge to consume a large slab of chocolate (I had only 4 pieces),
Drank more water,
Did not 'snack' on junky stuff,
Exercised twice (which is twice more than the week before).

My goals for next week:

Exercise 3 times this week (for at least 20min each)
Weigh and measure myself
Drink water instead of coffee / tea
Set up a healthy eating plan
Get more sleep (as I've learned that less sleep slows down your metabolism which makes it harder to lose weight!!)

Now, off to bed with me.

Elizabeth, I know what you mean about getting on the scale. That's why I didn't this week either. Yay for exercise and not eating junky stuff - I know with kids, especially sick ones, quick and easy snacks are easy to grab! Thanks for linking up!
