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).
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!).
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.
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?
