Non-Weigh In Wednesday

Non-weigh in Wednesday is here again! I still haven’t stepped on the scales yet, and think I am going to leave it until a Whole 30 has been completed before I do so. What’s been going on this week?

Steps

Well, I think I did my most steps this year on Saturday just passed, when Matt and I went to the Devon County Show for the day. I’ve got a post to write up about it, but I tipped over my goal at 10:30am on Saturday, which I don’t think I have ever done before. I feel like I am more active generally too.

Sleep and Concentration

I am definitely finding it much easier to get up in the morning still, though I am struggling to shut my brain off in the evening. I feel like I have so many ideas (work, blog, life) and so little time. Plus my note book is never near me when I need it, and I’m just not a digital enough kind of person to pop it on my phone. So this isn’t really a non-scale victory for me this week. My concentration levels aren’t brilliant, but I think it is because I am stretching myself quite thin (jack of all trades, master of none right now!). That will get better over the next few weeks (hopefully).

Clothing

My clothes are definitely getting baggier, which is brilliant news. While it is good news, frustratingly, Next don’t have any immediately available trousers in my size so I have been forced elsewhere. I’ve taken a bit of a gamble on what size I am in a different shop, but I think it’ll be officially the same size as I currently wear for work trousers. I need to buy some new jeans too, which I am hoping will match the size of my work trousers (they’re currently a size bigger). I also wish I had taken a selfie or something before I started my Whole 100 as I am sure my face looks a bit thinner (or perhaps I have found better lighting!).

Skin

This is a bit of an odd non-scale victory. My skin has broken out horribly. I’ve decided that this is a good thing. I have no idea whether this is actually the case, but I’ve decided that the crap from everything I was eating before my Whole 100 is on its way out and of course, being acne prone (still), it is my skin that suffers. If I am completely honest, my stress levels are quite high again, and that probably isn’t helping.

Digestively

This is a big thing for me. While I am generally pretty good, digestively speaking, this has got better over the last couple of weeks and it’s great! I don’t think I am eating as much, and life is just settled in this respect.

So that’s me this week. How is your week going?

  1. OOH! Nice to hear that (most) things are going in the right direction. I don’t know what the weather’s doing with you right now – it’s definitely a bit weird here: Brisbane seems to have NO IDEA how to do winter!! But if things are warming up, weather-wise, it might be affecting your skin. When we moved here in December, just as summer was starting to get interesting, my skin had heart failure… The detox effect can’t be underrated, either, like you say. As for the clothes – THAT IS FANTASTIC. (Except for Next not having your size available – that bit is annoying). But at least it gives you the chance to explore a different brand… Well done. You are doing SOOOOO well.

  2. Yay glad it’s still going well! Sounds like things are definitely heading in the right direction. Annoying about Next though. And Next online is just the DEVIL. No I don’t want to sign up to the directory thing, no I don’t want a massive book delivered and CHARGED to me every season.
    My week’s good, looking forward to the long weekend woohooo!

  3. It sounds like everything is going in the right direction. I’m pretty sure your skin will clear up soon too. I think what you said about everything escaping is probably right.
