After managing to lose a little weight in the first Stage of my plan, I am looking forward to this next stage where the focus is on Sculpting & Toning. I got off to a good start and enjoyed getting back into Pilates and Yoga. Both of which I haven’t done for almost two years. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed them. I have been trying to keep my steps up too but I have not been moving as much as usual. I was still at work this week but with no children around I seem to be more desk-bound. My diet didn’t get off to a great start either as I was snacking on leftover end of term treats in the office.
Another thing that is hard this time of year is avoiding alcohol. Who doesn’t like to sit in the sunshine with a glass of something cold at the end of a busy day. I am attempting to steer clear during the week but it’s not easy and I have several lunches/dinners with friends and family booked over the next few weeks. And, I can guarantee there will be drinking. I think I need to find out what the healthiest alcoholic drink is. Any suggestions??
Anyway this week has been OK. But I definitely need to work a little harder next week.
