Weekly Goal Plan to lose weight with Steps and Potential Risk Areas and Pitfalls.











 

Hello Everyone,


So with this goal, I figured a needed a plan or steps. I’ve started with working backwards - it’s like working destination first and then how to get there. Then I worked out the potential pitfalls and risk areas.

 Steps Work from Goal Plan

  • On Sunday, weigh myself at Virgin Active aim to be 81kg - yes still keeping with the one pound target. 
  • Sunday morning walk to Virgin Active to get weighed - and have a nice hot tub and steam room. 
  • Walk up stairs for a week instead of taking the lift/elevator 
  • Walk to up a hill after work at least three times a week.
  •  Do twenty minutes light cardio at least three times a week - sheduled - Monday, Wednesday, Friday. 
  • Avoid deserts at work all week, and no cakes or pastries at the weekend either. 
  • Plan lunches and dinners in advance - at least a day ahead. 

 Risk Areas and Potential Pitfalls 

 These are potential obstacles and barriers to achieving my weight loss - at least so I'm aware of them in advance. Most of them are based on my moods at the time, and are pretty much the different versions of the same thing.
  •  Working late and getting too tired to cook or make anything - this tends to lower my resistance as I pick up stuff on the way home - normally a reduced price bakery products or eating a sugar laden cereal . 
  • Working under pressure or feeling under pressure to deliver - I normally have a chocolate bar or something sweet. 
  • Getting too tired after work so I just literally forget the plan or bypass it getting upset so I just get what I want instant gratification if something nice is on display 'This-time-won't-matter' mindset.
  •  Feeling 'this-is-a-once-in-a-while' treat I can't let go 
  • Supermarket reducing really expensive pastries at the end of day 
  • Bored with eating healthily or just generally boredom 
  •  Feeling as I'm depriving myself or going without when I just want to eat what I want
  •  Not actually planning meals or following the plan
  • Feeling the goal is unimportant in the short term and I can start tomorrow. 
  • Buying sugary cereal!
  • Giving in to temptation.
  • Eating late at night. Like super late - however this also ties in with working late. There is cascading effect on some things.
There are simple solutions though they aren't easy. I could simply avoid going to the supermarket after work. It's more difficult than it sounds. I could plan and cook weekly but I like fresh food and frozen stuff thens to hibernate in my freezer for a very very long time.

Check-ins?

I haven't figured this one yet. So simple but still a lot. Perhaps just a review at the end with lessons learnt. To be fair this will be an on-going goal until I get to a reasonable weight - basically fit into my old clothes again.

See you later

Daily Writing Journal: Mo Money Challenge - week 8 which means £8 in the tin!

So I'm on my second week on saving and still not sure. I'm not feeling the pinch per se, but it's hard thinking how am I going to maintain this. So I managed to get a few coins out and gather some change, but at some point I'll really need to organise this. I've put in four fifty pence pieces with come up to two pounds sterling and the rest in pound coins. 
Remember the money tin from last week. Well it all went inside that....


How am I feeling? Slightly bored but I still have a long way to go..... Saving money is boring, spending is more interesting.

Daily Writing Journal:Kellogg Rebrands Cereals to standout the brand name Kellogs!

Walking round my Sainsburys for my weekly shopping, I suddenly noticed that Kelloggs had rebranded most of it's popular cereals.  At first I was confused but realised the big differences. Can you tell?

The first difference is Kelloggs has decided to manage it's brand name bigger and more dominant when before it was the actual cereal. Why? It suddenly occurred to me this was to make it stand out from the imitators such as the shop own brand.

As you can see from comparing the old Kelloggs packaging and Sainsbury's packaging there is little difference. Both have the product content in bold and both have the same colour packaging - blue. If you just wanted bran flakes then might as well get the cheaper one.

However with the new packaging, Kelloggs is screaming that you are getting Kelloggs brand, not just bran flakes. Actually the new packaging without the bold Kelloggs branding is pretty more similar to Sainsbury's.

They have also greyed out the traffic light, so it'…

My London Hood: The Postal Museum in London

I know communications has moved on and now everyone just uses text messages, emails and DMs or social media but The Postal Museum was a gem I found tucked in the depths of Clerkenwell (a London District), one day as I was going to Gails an artisan bakery.

 It was free entry and had lots of activities for children and adults. The battered green post box on the left hand-side is the first ever, the next was a special edition for Queen Victoria and then gold one for some celebration. Not sure what, it was probably the Olympics or something.

Though small the had plenty of display, like old carriages, and tales of highway robbers and a few fire arms on display.








This was the motorbikes for the telegram boys, no need for that with email now.

Old fashioned telephones and there was a telephone box as well.

You can see a few around central London, but mostly for tourists.

A few display of war time letters, they were very poignant, and a few sad, others happy.

This was a sad one during one of t…
