I returned back from a fantastic trip to San Francisco, Las Vegas, LA & Palm Springs on Wednesday this week. I did plan to blog whilst I was gone but life got in the way and I didn't get up getting around to it with all of the travelling and sight seeing we did. That aside I will go over the last few weeks for me and tell you where I'm up to.
Before I went away I had to go and buy shorts as I have gone down many sizes since last summer. That aside I knew I had put on quite a lot of weight since I clearly have taken my eye off the ball for quite some time and I just felt a lot bigger.
In general when you go away or even just eat out its hard to eat healthy but going to the States when they have loads of amazing foods it's hard to resist but within a couple of days the combination of eating delicious but fatty foods and he fact I have put on quite a bit of weight meant I was back to feeling uncomfortable with my clothes and unhappy with myself. The shorts I bought didn't get worn and I lived in the most flattering dresses that I own.
On a few evenings I did opt for salads which made me feel less bloated and eventually a few days later I was actually feeling a little bit better about myself. I think that this was finally the kick started I needed as I genuinely felt and could see my shape changing back to the way it used to be.
When I returned home it was pretty late on Wednesday so I just had some crackers and went to shops to pick up basic food which was mainly salad, chicken, fruit and vegetables. Going back to the truly healthy foods instantly has made me feel so much better. I'm embarrassed about the weight I've put on but with my new found focus I'll be right back to my lowest weight within 6 weeks I'm hoping and then I can continue until my goal weight.
