Back on the Straight & Narrow

After a pretty good week I was rewarded with a 1.5kg loss this week. I'm quite happy with that. :)

I've decided that February will be spent alcohol free! I'm hoping it will kickstart my weight loss even further and I figure every little bit helps. I'm not a big drinker, but drinks on the lawn with our neighbours of an afternoon and weekend had become far too frequent.

I could have been a bit stricter with my eating this week, but I did manage to exercise 5 out of 7 days. :)

Yesterday we went for a lovely cooling swim at Kings Beach, Caloundra, then headed into the hinterland and had lunch at Maleny where it was raining. I took some breadrolls and we had hot chip rolls with sauce for lunch. Yumm! I partook in these as a reward for my week, but also so that I feel I'm not depriving myself of too much.

Here's to another good week. So far today DH & I went on a 50 minute walk around our local area. It's quite sad to see how devastating the floods were to our local creeks, parks and walking tracks.

A loss is a loss I guess

Only a very small loss of 200g this week, but with 2 birthday celebrations for my 40th and a fair bit of alcohol, I'm not complaining. :)

What a Week!

Well as most of you would know Qld, and now other parts our country, are in a flood crisis. The massive clean up has begun in parts of Qld, but for other states it will be just beginning.

We had a close call on Tuesday when our local creek across the road from us broke it banks and flooded the reserve. It also flooded our street down the lower end and cut us off from getting out of the estate.

Thankfully the rain stopped and the creek started to drop.

The end of our street. We are well down the other end in a cul-de-sac.

Reserve across the road from us.

Basketball court.

Thankfully by morning the water had totally receded. Local areas around us were hit hard, like the local major park, and a few bridges needing work done. Though nothing like thousands of Brisbane & Ipswich people have been hit. :(

So consequently my eating has been a bit hit & miss this week. I turned 40 on Thursday so had a few celebratory drinks and dinner out with my family, then dinner out last night with a few girlfriends. Absolutely no exercise done at all. So will start anew tomorrow.

Weigh in Day

Weigh in Day Monday 10 January 2011

Original start weight = 104.2kg

Today's weight = 91.7kg

Well over the 90kg that I hoped to stay in the vicinity of, but that's what you get I guess after 2 weeks of slacking off over Christmas. I'm not that bothered by it, especially as I was over 93kg at the start of last week. That was also on the 1st day of AF. I haven't really done too much exercise this week, but have tried watching what I eat, but did have a few slip up's.

Hopefully this week the scales will continue to go down, though with 2 birthday celebrations I'll have to be extra careful.

I can't believe ..........

How long it has been since I last blogged. :( Definitely because I have been slack and fallen off the weight loss wagon. Well in truth, I get on, get off, get on, get off.

My weight since Christmas has snuck back over the 90kg mark, though I am not going to weigh myself this week as dreaded AF has arrived, and the gain from that would depress me even more.

October was an extremely busy month for me. I had my sister's hens weekend, a girls weekend away, then a weeks break, then my sister's wedding. This played havoc with my eating & drinking and all good eating & exercise went out the window. I stayed in this mode for the next couple of months, then next thing you know, it's Christmas.

So now it's time to get back on the straight and narrow. Next week I turn 40 and instead of having a party, I'm going on a cruise up to Cairns with some girlfriends. I have about 12 weeks to lose 12 kilos, which I "think" is achievable. I'd love to be under 80kg by then, so will use this as motivation.

Here's a photo of me at my sister's wedding on October 30.

Not the best photo, but the only full length one I had.

Bridge to Brisbane

Well I did it!!!

My sister & I walked 10kms in 1 hr 48 mins & 20 seconds. She actually beat me by 1 second even though we crossed the finish line together.

We even managed a few short jogs towards the end. Our goal was to do it under 2 hours so I'm happy that we did that.

I can't wait to do it again next year, though I will hopefully be able to jog a fair portion of it, and I will be wearing lycra! :D
