Weight loss Update - Getting right back on the horse!

RIGHT!! I've said it once and I'll say it again...

It's time to get back on track!

I'm not going to lie, I have been a super slacker in my weightloss journey and i dread to step on the scales, however once you stray from your path you have to just get right back up again! With the release of WoW classic, it's been pretty much me sitting on my butt 15+ hours a day (while I've been off work) slaving away at the game... BUT NO MORE... Well, no more eating junk and not exercising, there will be MUCH more WoW classic, that stuffs more addictive than nicotine people!

I just got a promotion at work! Which has boosted my confidence enough to get me back in my weight loss mindset!

So today is Thursday! What are the aims for today? Want to do it with me? Starting today!? Do it! Or don't, up to you but let's do this together!

1) Drink LOADS of water - filling, flushes put the nasty stuff from your body AND you need a wee so much that if your bathroom is upstairs, you burn a monster amount of calories! Water is life people!

2) Have my shake for lunch as a meal replacement. Here is a link to the one I use!

This is a shake I use as a meal replacement. It is extremely filling and very tasty. Packed with protein and all the good vitamins! I'm not associated with this company, I'm just saying this is the one I use. Feel free to use a different one of not at all!

3) Have a Jacket Potato for dinner with Tuna and salad.

4) Try to get a full nights sleep!

Nice and simple check list for the day. I would have added some wort of workout but i am on an all day sleep in at work today.
