Giving up the Cookies: My Worst Week of 2014


Uuuuuhhhhh, this week as been so bad. I can’t even begin to explain. It’s just been one of those weeks where I have eaten so much crap. I even had two take away’s this week and that’s so unlike me.

On the opposite end of that, I worked so hard at my two classes this week and I was so soar after both of them. This was the first week that I felt strong doing them so after eight weeks of training I’m really proud of that. It just sucks that my eating ruined all of my good hard work this week. πŸ™ I’ve been so weak willed. But I just have to keep the chin up and keep going.

This coming week marks the final week of my nine week military circuit training and we are taking a break for a few weeks then before starting back. My challenge will be to stay motivated and exercise on those free evenings during those few weeks. I’m going to try get two evenings of jogging in mixed with some core and strength work.

Too look back on the past two months since I made my lifestyle changes, I am overall so happy with how far I’ve come. I’ve had my ups and downs with food but my mentality is for the long run and I plan on dropping the dress size that I want to drop. I’m not going to let this one bad week set me back!! I just can’t because I would be so disappointed with myself.

I got up this morning and did an intense 30 minute work out that focused on my core and arms. I have such weak triceps so I really want to build those up.

It has been eight weeks and although I’ve only lost 7 pounds over all, I can see my body changing and toning. My neck and face are gone quite slim and from my knees down have gotten slimmer too. I can also see a difference in my arms which is great! My main focus area though which is my stomach hasn’t changed to much. Β This frustrates me if I’m honest but all I can do is keep working at it.


Anyways I wanted to report on my bad week because I know a lot of people are following my journey and I want to be as honest as I can possibly be. Here’s hoping my next post will have more positive updates!

Until next time,

  1. Good woman Kathleen, you can do it! Send some motivation my way! πŸ™‚

  2. 1/2 stone is a lot of weight you should be really proud! I think when we accept that weight loss is never a smooth journey but overall we’ll get there if we keep going it’s easier to cut ourselves some slack, I was great all last week and then the weekend went a bit haywire!

  3. You are doing fantastically well, you really are motivated and you can do this! We all deserve one week of cookies πŸ˜‰ xx
