Imagine my dismay yesterday when I stood on the scales to see that I had, instead of losing any weight, in fact put on 3lbs.

It turns out that having three Costas in one week and only exercising the once, and that at the beginning of the week, plus two days of ice cream and one massive burger and chips meal out are not conducive to a lifestyle that will lead to being healthy, fit and less fat.  Who knew?

Maybe my first week was not planned very well.  Maybe I have an issue with will power.  Maybe I am incredibly lazy.  Nope, no maybes about it.

There was some effort made last week, however, so it wasn’t all bad.

I made some amazing homemade meals, some from the Hairy Dieters Cookbook.

I know that my failure to lose weight is due to a lack of effort on my part.  If I am serious about losing fat and getting fit I need to be a lot more focused, and visit Costa a lot less often!

Going forward I need to step up my game and make a lot more effort with both my meals and my exercise routine.  I will also try to blog more than once a week so that I can keep track of my progress on a more regular basis.
