Well as promised last week, I have taken on the Mumentum challenge with the other lovely mummy bloggers. It's challenge enough for me to blog every Monday, let alone stick to a healthy lifestyle plan.
However, I feel half pleased with myself for the past weeks efforts.
I have mostly healthy eaten through the week, making my home made minestrone soup (162 calories a bowl and totally delish) eating salads where ever possible and generally cutting back on the choccies and crisps. But, unfortunately come the weekend I seem to have slipped. I did a quick shop and picked up loads of (yummy) crap!! knowing full well I shouldn't be eating any of it. it was like my arm was reaching out to the shelves and pulling in all the delicious naughties. Hubby and I had quite a stressful week, business wise, so come Friday evening we were both mentally and physically drained, stuffed crust pizza followed by rocky road ice cream seemed to be the only answer.
On a plus side, I have been exercising!!
5 out of 7 nights I have done a vigorous jog on the treadmill, I'm working my time up, and doing 25mins at the mo. Have been really enjoying it and Neo thinks i'm hilarious to watch.
I have also been using my ab-tek belt once or twice a day, for half an hour, and I have definitely seen an improvement on the mum tum front, less protruding and bloated and hubby even commented and thinks maybe he will give it a go!
(thanks to would like to me a yummy mummy.blogspot.com for that review/recommendation)
So taking last week on board, I reckon if I eat completely healthy and carry on with the exercise, I could be finally getting somewhere! However, I find the food wagon very easy to fall off. I just can't help it, I'm a Huge foodie. Out on date night tomorrow with hubby, so healthy option may be difficult.
And finally i've also discovered this week that i have a slight addiction to jaffa cakes... not good on mumentum, but at only 46 calories a go, it seems mad not too! (just don't eat the hole pack like I did yesterday, at 46 calories a go this is also very easy :(...)
Good luck this week everyone who's also mumentum-ing it! really look forwrad to hearing how you're all doing!
*chants* MUMENTUM, MUMENTUM, MUMENTUM!!!!
