Rachel's week

2 x sessions on the cross trainer

1 x 5k run with sprints

1 x spin class

1 x evening of legs, bums and tums exercise

4 glasses of wine

3 whiskey and diet lemonades 

Expected prosecco this evening (writing this on the train to a friends, there better be prosecco)

2 x indulgent meals 

I had prepared for my healthy regime earlier in the week to ensure it wasn't such a shock to my system. My nutrition for the week has been pretty good but I couldn't resist some cheeky drinks over the weekend. Alcohol is definitely my down fall. I'm refraining from reeling off the usual excuses [inserts relevant reason here].

So I've only lost a pound but I feel a lot better in myself already. The boys feel a bit smaller which is always a good sign. Getting in four sessions of exercise is always a balancing act but I know I've just got to keep at it. I'm trying not to be too focused on what numbers the sad step tells me but I would really like to lose the stone I've put on. Must. Keep. Plodding. 

Some of my healthy meals this week:
