Another Mental Health Update and Weigh-in

Hi all,

So, I didn’t get to the gym when I said I was going to. My mood just got worse and worse! It was a vicious cycle. I was feeling too depressed and anxious to go out, so I just stayed in bed, and because I achieved nothing, I made myself more depressed and anxious! The weather here in the UK really hasn’t helped either. It’s been extremely windy and rainy and it really puts you off going outside.

However, on Saturday I decided to do an act of self-care for myself. I took myself off to a petting farm on a country estate and fed ponies, donkeys, alpacas, chickens, a calf and some goats. The behaviour of some of the animals had me in hysterics and really lightened my mood. Here is a photo of one of the funny ones!

I also made sure to do a mini walk while I was there through their nature trail. It certainly blew the cobwebs away! In fact, although I didn’t go to the gym after Monday last week, I did a little walk almost every day, so I’m proud of myself for that.

In weigh-in news, I finally made it to the gym today and managed my usual routine with HIIT running. Here is my weigh-in for this week:

So, as you can see, I have lost the last gain of 2 pounds plus another pound! And I have now lost a total of 2 stone (28lbs) in a year! And, my BMI is under 30 (just!) It is so good to see all those amazing numbers.

How is everyone doing on their weight loss journeys?
