So I spent a long weekend at Center Parcs and well and truly fell off the fat girl fit wagon!
I did take my trainers and on two out of the four days I did complete 5k runs. Also for anyone that has not been (and I would recommend it – fab) you are not allowed cars so it is walking and cycling everywhere and so many activities including lots of swimming although I am fairly certain I cannot count water slides as training – or can I?
I have been so good on my diet for so long and this weekend I was not. Really was not. Like really really was not. I ate a burger, and nachos, and mac and cheese, and sweet potato fries, and 3 jaffa cakes, and blueberry pancakes, and a waffle, and cocktails. Not all in one day – this was over four days. I am not that bad – although now I have written down what I ate I am hanging my head (and also several chins) in shame. Whoever snuck the s in fast food was a clever little b*stard.
Don’t get me wrong sometimes I get sick of eating healthy. As I eat my rice cakes I truly satisfy my cravings……… for styrofoam. I tend to walk past bakeries and look at all the delicious things……. I can’t eat. Then I eat my soup or salad or something equally without sugar and happiness.
I’ve eaten healthily for so long that after one weekend off I am ready to get back on with healthy eating – craziness! Probably helped by the fact that deep in my heart it says chocolate and wine but right now my lycra leggings say for the love of god woman eat a salad. I feel like my muffin top now resembles a 3 tier wedding cake.
What did I expect? Fitness is like a marriage, you can’t cheat and expect it to work.
So back to it!
I got home from Center Parcs yesterday and headed out to a spin class. Interval training spin class. A tough class but back to it and raring to go!
And so Monday is usually weigh in day but being away this was not done and I don’t want to wait until next week so like a plaster I need to rip it off and get it done. Got up this morning and weighed myself to see what the damage was. I put on half a pound – never want a gain but after a weekend off I will take half a pound.
Circuit class tonight – lets do it!
