Remember my mini goal for last week….well I achieved it. WOOOHOOO!!! On Sunday I weighed in at 56.8kgs and was very VERY happy. Shame there wasn’t anyone to share my joy with but who cares I’m doing this for me and I was pleased with this little win.

So what else to report from the weekend?

As planned Saturday was back into the harder core training. Sprints on the exercise bike in the morning. Leg training (at home) in the afternoon, followed by a jog. We went to SIL’s for dinner and she went to the trouble of preparing a separate meal for me. She bought me a beautiful fillet of atlantic salmon, laid slices of ginger, garlic, chilli and coriander on it and steamed it. The serve was a bit bigger than I’d normally have but it was so delicious that I ate it all and enjoyed every mouthful (with some asian veges as well).

On Sunday I surprised WH with breakfast out and the diet was relaxed a little. Then we had my mum and dad over for dinner that evening and it was a lovely day all round. Yes I spent a lot of time cooking and baking but they’re things I enjoy anyway and I love seeing people eating and enjoying my food. I had a small splurge in the evening too but you know what I’M TOTALLY OK WITH IT!!!

Previously this would have sent me into fits of guilt, shame, depression, feelings of failure etc and I’d be beating myself up over it or wrestling with self doubt and a heap of other negative stuff. But not this time. Have I turned a corner? Maybe. Have I woken up to the fact that I CAN have a small indulgence and keep it under control? Maybe. Have I tapped into a more positive mindset…a “can do” attitude? Maybe. More on this next time……

So this morning I harnessed those extra carbs and calories into an awesome back/heavy legs session and got the day off to a spectacular start. Eating is back to 100% on track and I’m in a happy and positive place. Life is good and I’m doing what I can to keep it this way.

Cheers all

Congrats on your achievement of breaking the 57kg mark, you will be fine from her on in.
Eating a little extra every now and again will spike your metabolism so your right in not feeling guilty.
Well done Magda your doing sooooo well.

Hi Magda,
I agree with splice as long as you know when to stop a little indulgence is fine. It's even better that you're ok with it anyway, good on you. I would love to have your tiny waist your progress pics are awesome. Congrats on achieving your mini goal to. Keep up the great work
