Weigh In Weight - End of Week 3
Oh nooooo - End of Week 4 (400 gram weight gain)
But still measurements came down - you will learn more next week as we head into week 5
Well this morning I had a great weigh in – I am quite shocked actually. I tipped the scales at 89.7 kg….how great is that. I haven’t been in my 80’s for months and to do it in 3 weeks is great. Pretty stoked with that effort.
I picked Leisa up from the airport as she had been away for a few days and we decided to go get brunch. There is this most amazing place not far from our place called the Loose Caboose and Leisa and I have been there a number of times, working our way through the menu. Their food is so amazing and have yet to been disappointed. The way they present their food and the flavour is divine. I know that there were some meals that I could choose from so it made it an even easier choice to visit. I had this most amazing nourish bowl (you may have seen it posted on Facebook) I added smoked salmon and mushroom to it and it was just perfect. I think it is my new favourite thing 😊
It was a beautiful day today too, so Leisa and I made sure to sit outside to get some Vitamin D and do our work/study. Was a nice relaxing day and great to have Leisa home.
Monday – 1st October
Going out for a meal is always a challenge because you have to attempt to make better choices, so again I indulged in a couple of vodka, lime and soda’s. The menu was a challenge as there were probably only two to 3 things I could potentially choose from so in the end I decided upon a delicious prosciutto wrapped barramundi with scallops, dukkha, asparagus and a cauliflower mash. It was actually really delicious, so I am happy with my choice.
Tuesday – 2nd October
After work, Leisa wanted to make something for lunches the next couple of days. We are trying to use up the veggies in the fridge, so she decided to make up some tuna and vegetable sausage rolls. Now I know that pastry isn’t the best, but the innards were delicious. Sweet potato, kale, spinach, mushroom, kidney beans, chilli tuna, pine nuts and a few other bits and pieces. Leisa did a great job
Wednesday – 3rd October
Thursday – 4th October
Friday – 5th October
Saturday – 6th October
In the afternoon we had an incredibly fun day where we celebrated one of our good friends birthday. It was different to any other birthday we had been to as we started with a scavenger hunt which sent us all around the streets of Adelaide taking photos and selfies of what was on the list. It was so much fun, I think we will steal it for future ideas with mates.
Well this week was full of ups and downs. It is so great to have my family down from Queensland and to spend some quality time with them, this was definitely one of my highlights from the week, as well as spending some good quality time with Leisa eating delicious food while chatting about life in the sunshine 😊 Having this cold though really put a dampener on my week which meant little exercise, plenty of rest and lack of motivation. My diet also wasn’t the greatest so there will probably be a small blip on the scales tomorrow…….will have to wait and see if I have put anything back on (as always we give the week Ending weigh in - little clip of 400 grams). Thanks for stopping by for the week that was and be sure to check in next week to see how I am going on my better choice journey. Have a fantastic week everyone.
