Have I slept through Summer?!


Well doesn’t it feel like winter today?!

Woke up to a very grey, chilly, blustery day. Lovely rain this afternoon too! Had to wear a jumper today it was so cold!

I took some measurements this morning, it’s Day 22 of my Summer Challenge!

Day 22 measurements:

Weight: 10st 9lbs now 10st 6lbs loss of 3lbs

Hips: 38″ still 38″

Waist (round belly button): 33″ now 31″ loss of 2 inches

Under bust: 31″ now 29.5″ loss of 1.5 inches

Bust: 35.5″ now 35″ loss of 0.5 inches

Arm: 12″ still 12″

Thigh: 24″ (4 inches above the knee: s18.5″ & 8 inches above the knee 22″ now 21″ loss of 1 inch)

So a total loss of 3lbs and 5 inches so far!

I have been making an attempt at intermittent fasting today, I managed from 8pm last night until 1.30pm this afternoon. It was interesting to see that I wasn’t starving as I thought I might be, in fact I wasn’t hungry at all. This isn’t necessarily going to be a lifestyle choice, it’s just something I have been reading a lot about and today is the day I have given it a go!

I started this morning with a super tough workout!! Sweaty Betty!!!

Lunch was a spiced turkey breast with spinach, cucumber, red onion, broccoli and olives. I ate half of it before I remembered to take a picture! 

Snacks this afternoon were chilli cashews.

I have had a cracking headache this afternoon, even drinking 3.5 litres of water wouldn’t shift it, so it can’t have been dehydration. The only thing that would shift it was migraine tablets 😦

Dinner was beef bolognaise with loooooads of extra veggies, there were onions, courgettes, mushrooms in there. Normally I add carrots but we didn’t have any! I used fresh tomatoes whizzed up for this and lots of garlic. Nomnomnom!!!  I had mine served with loads of spinach.

Hope you all had a great Monday! I am off to watch The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest now and then early to bed!

  1. Wow you are doing so well! Will be interested to hear how the fasting goes, I’ve only really seen how JAG has been finding it. I have to admit that even as a veggie that bolognaise looks amazing!

I love to read your comments!
