Cambridge weigh in no. 3

I had my weigh in earlier, I was a bit disappointed because I hadn't actually lost anything this week, which is weird! I have lost another inch all over basically so I found it strange that I haven't lost anything. I was told that I could be retaining water from my period because it has finished a few days ago, I do feel bloated I have done all week really so this is probably true! I was told that because I am a woman my body will obviously react when it is the time of the month so this is what has happened! I have only snacked once which is that I had a tiny chip off my boyfriend's plate but that is it!

I think maybe I haven't been drinking enough water as well, I haven't been home all the time I have been out so it is kind of difficult to drink loads of water when I am not at home. I always carry a bottle of water with me and I have been getting through this and then drinking more when I am at home. However it has been really hot the past few days here in the UK so I need to drink more than what I have been drinking.

I have done a few bits of exercise, well it's not exercise as in working out but I have been doing some building for some of the work experience I am doing this week. Quite a bit of lifting heavy items and carrying them up a few flights of stairs, and then quite a bit of walking. I need to do more exercise but not so much that I have no energy left because I am not eating a lot.

I found this youtuber 'Blogilates' Cassey Ho is her name, she is a fitness instructor and does some exercise routines some are short about 6-10 minutes and some are longer. I am going to do some of the short ones, one or two a day hopefully! I just did this one just (link below), which is called Victoria Secret Supermodel Stiletto Legs Workout. It is a leg routine which works on your butt as well in heels, it kills! I managed to do the whole workout wobbling a bit as I did it in 5.5 inch heels! You do really feel it on your legs and butt during and after. It was only about 6 minutes long so doing these type of routines daily will help me get toned as well as help to lose the weight.

Cassey also does some cheap and clean eating recipes. I have been looking at recipes for once I am back on eating normal food. I know that my consultant is going to make me a diet plan but I want to look for myself as well to find some recipes that I can use that will be healthy for me. Some of the foods she makes I wouldn't eat, but I could always use food that I would eat but cook it in the same way she does or substitute some of the ingredients for ones that I like. I came across the coconut flour recipe that she uses for making tortilla wraps. I never even knew that coconut flour existed! This is something I would love to try, or even make with a very low carb flour.

When I have finished with the cambridge diet I would want to start making my own food from scratch. This way I will know what would be going into the food I am eating and I will feel better about the food that I am eating. Also it would mean that my cooking skills will be getting better, I love to cook but I used to mainly bake cakes etc (I don't even eat the things that I bake I just love to cook!) my mom would normally cook my dinner for me so I didn't really have a choice of what I could eat. I want to take control on my diet as I am doing now and I want this to continue when I start eating normal food again.
