When Life Isn't Complicated Enough

Weight Loss Journey Week 6 of 2013

Naval Gazing

Ok Ok … Will the lazy sod please stand up! …. that will be me then!

This week I will list my weight loss failings *hangs head in shame*

I was nothing but a lazy so and so.. my cold meant no Hockey Training as I can barley breath when I am out there, add a blocked nose and copious amounts of snot .. not good.

I have unashamedly eaten rubbish, crisps and a takeaway without a second thought.

My final failing this week was the 9 hours of drinking in which over 7 pints of larger where consumed (and that’s just the ones I remember, I vaguely recollect a wine or 3??!)

I am pleased to report however a couple of my friends from the village who last year did very well on their fitness drive are going to be taking up 2 x 3 mile walks per week in the evenings and if I honest I am looking forward to joining in .. who knows maybe I could build myself up to running it? .. eventually

Ladies please be aware I may need a sick bag!

I have also while sat in my fat pants on the sofa been reading a great book called Naval Gazing about weight loss and the emotional connection that your head plays in this weight loss malarkey if anyone is interested then I have completed a review of the book HERE.

So my exercise targets for last week were:

  • A minimum of 3 x 2 mile walks  (min 6 Miles)
  • Attend both hockey training sessions (junior with Beth & ladies = 180 mins)
  • No Hockey match … (although I thought there was no match after I was looking at the wrong week).. its the blonde in me!

What exercise I actually completed this week:

  • 1 x 1 mile – Walk
  • 110 mins Hockey Match (we lost 6-1!)
  • No Hockey Training as I felt dreadful last Wednesday with a blooming cold.

So how did I do? 

Remained the Same .. if I am honest I deserved to of gained!

Total Weight Loss This Year:


Total Loss (including last year)

4 Stone 7.5lbs

Next Week’s Exercise:

  • A minimum of 2 x 3 mile walks (min 6 miles total)
  • Attend both hockey training sessions (junior with Beth & ladies = 180 mins)
  • Hockey Match Saturday so need to play the whole match!

This week I only have my lazy ass to blame! … come on lets get hyped for next week!

    You are doing an amazing job, I think a little splurge every so often will do you good. At least you didn’t gain anything, so it was worth allowing yourself some treats 🙂

      being honest was why i started publicly posting about it, that way i can shame myself if i am feeling lazy.

  13. That book sounds really good, I’m going to read your review next. You have made me laugh so much (and I needed that) that you’ve tagged it Lazy Sod. Your weight loss is brill so far, better week next week xx

    • Jaime Oliver says:

      Glad i made you laugh honey, if we dont laugh sometimes we might all cry! 🙂 although it was apt since i have been a lazy sod! lol

      The book is very motivational and it has helped my understand some of the odd ways in which i dont feel happy in my own skin is down to my head .. nothing else.

      Heres to a fab week all round for us 🙂
