Battle of the Blogger Butts week five

Well, another week has nearly passed.  I am early with my battle of the blogger butts post this week as I am going on holidays tomorrow.  I promise to keep a diary of my exercise and will post when I get back home. 
Sunday 30 Jan starting weight 72.9
Monday 31 Jan morning walk.  The road was slippery from light rain, and I slipped and fell onto my left knee, which has gravel rush and is soooo sore....the hazards of exercise!
Tuesday 1 February morning walk, although I had a sore knee!
Wednesday 2 February no exercise
Thursday 3 February morning walk
Friday 4 February morning walk

Tuesday night we went to a Thai restaurant with friends who just became grandparents the day before, so we had to toast new baby with champagne.  Had a lovely pork with ginger and shallot dish, and satay chicken too.
Friday night we went to some friends for a delicious dinner party, with trio of dips (including homemade eggplant dip), lamb, chicken, roast veges, couscous. Dessert was mini profiteroles with little chocolates, all washed down with Sauvignon Blanc, champagne and liqueur.
Needless to say, this morning I sent my walking partner a text: Too tired, slack and a little hungover to go for our walk this morning. Sorry.!
Finishing weight this week was 73.4, and I blame all the food I ate, the alcohol I drank and hormones as well. 
I know I will be drinking on my holidays, and eating food I am not used to, but I will be thinking of the blogger challenge too!
smiles and have a great week.


  1. ouch, hope your knee is better.
    at least you know where the gain came from.
    Looking forward to your next post!. :D
    Have a fantastic holiday..

  2. Oh good it's not just me who went backwards lol

    At least you got some exercise in there!

  3. What a festive week you have had! So jealous you are going on holidays and I say 'Enjoy' yourself and get stuck into it when you get back. You are looking terrific in this snap and hope you have a great time. Naomi x

  4. Have a great holiday and look after that knee..I think we all need that free pass to give us a week off for injury.....I gained weight this week too - it sucks.

  5. Come on! The walking is good, but remember the calories out has to at least equal the calories in...if not out-do the calories in!!! time to pick up the pace? Are you going somewhere scenic? Perhaps you could go hiking??
    Or perhaps will it wait until you get home? hmmm,I guess we'll find out next week...

  6. Sounds like you had a great week. Except the whole knee thing - I hope it's feeling better! At least you know where the gain came from. Have a great holiday!

  7. Ouchhie for you knee!! I think we should all take a pledge not to feel guilty when when over eat - it's part of life and more about learning to deal with it (well that's what I'm working on). Yay for the holiday. Hope you have a wonderful time and come back refreshed and revitalised. Enjoy Cazxx
