A Blip and moving on.. #WobblesWednesday

Wobbles Wednesday

Welcome to Wobbles Wednesday, our weekly link-up for support, hints and recipes for making healthier diet and lifestyle choices.

As the title suggests, I had a bit of a Blip this week but have got over it and recognised it for the moment of weakness that it was. Thorntons Chocolate Brownies be gone! And they are.

I had an extremely busy week last week which no doubt contributed to the Blip, I was taking down one trampoline, putting up another, filling a Hippobag and generally getting very muddy, whilst breaking a few nails (down to the nail bed) in the process, I also managed to nearly saw the tip of a finger off (as you do). Hence the fact I didn’t finish commenting and sharing posts until yesterday, apologies. I will be more timely this week.

I really enjoy reading everyone’s posts and anyone is welcome to link up, the more support the merrier.

It is always very helpful to read other people’s accounts of how they’ve managed to transform themselves and I picked up a couple of books this week which I am hoping to read and share my views on them in future weeks.

There was a vast range of “diet” books to choose from, but the two above stood out for me, primarily because they both focus on mindset, which is so important for making those healthier choices. Josie Gibson has successfully proved that she can transform her body and mindset and I read about Paul McKenna’s book a few weeks ago.

I’ve also been sent a selection of low cal/low fat/low gluten noodles, pasta and rice to try out by EatWater.co.uk, I previously reviewed some noodles (here), so am looking forward to cooking with the other varieties and sharing my views.

So, my aims for the next week are:

To hopefully avoid any further “blips”, but if they happen, I’m human and move on.

To drink more water. I didn’t drink enough last week and felt sluggish.

To keep being positive, I have a lot to be grateful for.

I’m also going to jump on a set of scales, which although I can feel I’m achieving, it would be nice to see numbers.

So, please use the linky below to add in your posts and I’m looking forward to seeing how everyone is doing Jx

Thanks Cheryl, I think it’s the time of year, Spring still seems far off and a snuggle on the sofa with some chocolate is very tempting 🙂

The thought of diets make me hungry but I can do healthier tastier foods. Don’t let a blip through you off your end objectives and thank you for pointing me to your linky

Blips happen. I’m currently supplementing by modest salad with Blueberry Muffin flavour Party Rings. Surprisingly good they are too. Play the long-term game and your blips will not matter. Rome wasn’t built in a day etc

So true, Graham, thanks. Those party rings sound interesting :-/

Seems to be the week of blips but what stood out for me in your post that like myself you are not beating yourself up for it but moving positively forwards
Look forward to hearing what you make of those books – both appeal to me @kateonthinice

Ah blips happen the important thing is that it is a blip not a way of life. Good luck xx

I’m back – after a blip that lasted about six months (or more). Good to see the support is still here. We can do it this year ladies

Great to see you back, we definitely can do it!! We have our first regular male blogger too, Graham, which is great x

Well, at least I am not the only one who had a chocolate encounter this week… Misery loves company 🙂 It’s just a minor blip, and I am sure it didn’t do any damage to all your efforts, so just put it behind you and move forward. At least that’s what I told myself 🙂 Loved linking up with you again! x

Absolutely agree, it’s when you (I) have the willpower to stop at just the one, accept it for the blip that it is and move on.
I’ve scheduled my linky for tomorrow, will send it on when it’s live x
