Week 11 - Day 3 - All good plans

I had to take my son to Melbourne yesterday for an interview at Monash Uni for physio next year. Being an accelerator day, I thought I'd go prepared. I packed the lovely turkey salad and off we went. My great plan went out the window literally when we were about 3/4 of our way to Monash. My son gets really travel sick but had taken his meds but with the nervousness of the interview he felt extremely ill. The only container we had in the car was the container with my salad. So out it went just in case he needed the container to spew. All quite funny in the long run. Anyway, on the way home we stopped at one of the road side service stations and they actually sold a bowl of salad for $3.50 which was really yummy.
Today after a few weeks of being very stagnant on the scales, I dropped 1.6kg. I'm so happy as this makes my total loss 12kg but better still, I'm under 70kg. Woo Hoo

Week 11 - Day 1 - Only 2 weeks to go

Only 2 weeks to go. That is so sad. I want to be a part of this program for ever but know that that is not an option. I'm not doing the next round. I feel that somewhere I have to stand on my own two feet and be accountable to me. Now is the time. I've learnt so much from Mish and will be forever thankful to her for giving me my life back and showing me how to do this. I love this new lifestyle and new me

Week 10 - Day 5 - CNew Committments

OMG I've just committed to adding 3 Crossfit sessions a week to training schedule. It commences next Friday night
I've just registered for my first ever fun run. It's not until January and it's only 6k but I've never ever done anything like this before.
I'm scared. I'm excited.

Week 10 - Day 4 - My Mojo has returned

I'm back. I went to PT last night and poured my heart out to my PT. I then went home and cried for about an hour about nothing at all. I'm so not like this normally but it seems to have helped.
I bounced out of bed this morning and went for a run in the rain and included a couple of hills which I normally don't do. I've felt awesome all day and really feel back on top of things. I've got boxing tonight and so can't wait. God it's good to have my mojo back.

Week 10 - Day 3 - I'm stuck

My weight has stayed the same for the past 2 weeks and I just seem to be stuck. It's really frustrating and disappouinting. Even just a amallish loss would have been good. Oh well, shit happens and we move on. Hopefully next week will see the scales move downwards.
I actually really feel like I'm struggling with everything. It all seems too hard. Not just tje exercising and healthy eating but just everything. I'm grumpy at home, I'm sitting at work wishing I was elsewhere. I just CBF. This is not like me so I don't deal with it very well. I just feel drained.

Week 10 - Day 2 - I'm stuggling

When I set my goals I didn't even take my wedding into consideration. My weight loss goals had nothing to do with my wedding. Well that was what I thought and told myself but perhaps I've been kiding myself.
Since getting married I'v really struggled with the eating and exercise. All that good work of setting up a routine and forming new habits just went out the window. It makes me think that deep down I really was trying to lose weight for the wedding. I don't know. All I do know is that I I've been eating all the left overs and wedding cake and drinking all the left over alcohol. Not being at work has added to the problem as I'm totally out of wack with my usual routine. I've got to pull this all back and gain the control. The only good part is that I've managed to somehow stay the same weight. I really want to lose more weight so staying the same just isn't an option for me.
I came back to work last Thursday and have so far this week been on track both with eating and exercise. I've just reset all my goals and I think this will also help. I got to my 3 month goals at week 9 and hadn't done anything about re evaluating. Now I have some clear goals again.
Hopefully this week will see a small loss on the scales and that will be enough to get me motivated to continue

Week 8 - day 6 - I'm getting married

The day is finally here. I'm getting married. I started the day with a spin class before heading to the hairdressers followed by makeup. I'm all set just sitting her waiting. It is wet & cold here today so our garden wedding has been transferred inside. No big drama as the whole thing is at home. Just hate this waiting waiting waiting. Rock on 5 o'clock when our guests are due to arrive

Week 8 - Day 4 - Just another day

I've been for my 5k run/walk. I ran the entire way yesterday but find I can't back it up the next day. I'll keep trying. I would love to run 5k 3 times a week so I'll just keep perservering.
I have a boxing session tonight which I always look forward to. It is always really hard work but the endorphines kick in and I'm on a high for a couple of hours.
2 more sleeps until I get married. It is meant to rain and be thunder storms. I don't really care as we are just having a small wedding at home and instead of being outdoors, we will be inside.

Week 8 - Day 3 - A small loss

I weighed in 400g lighter this morning. This is so good as I was really just hoping to stay the same. I was so afraid of putting on. I also managed a 5km run this morning before work so I'm really pleased with myself today.
I went and bought lovely pink lingerie at lunch time for my wedding. I'm not ashamed to look at myself in the mirror anymore. That is such a change in mindset. I actually think I looked pretty damn hot in the pink lingerie. Can't wait to see my new hubby's face when he sees me comfortable and confident in sexy underwear!

Week 8 - Day 2 - I cheated a bit

I decided to do an accelerater day today instead of waiting for next week. I've had no carbs today and I'm starving. I am so panicy about weigh in tomorrow that I thought this might help. Time will tell.
We did and awesome group PT last night. My personal total was as follows. 75 Wall balls with 8kg ball, 105 Burpees (I hate them so much), 126 Chin ups (with assistance), 144 push ups and 240 squats. My poor legs today feel a tad sore.
I'm off to try out a new gym tonight. It is straight crossfit and our work group are looking to do a session a week. We'll see what they have to offer us.
I just got the menu for my wedding. It is all finger foods and looks simply divine. 4 more sleeps

Week 8 - Day 1 - Lost track of time

So much has happened and I've not had time to even think about this blog. I can't believe I've missed so many days.
I went to Oaks Day and had an awesome day. The downside is that I drank heaps of champagne and had no control over my food as it was all catered for. It was finger foods all day so I really tried very hard to select the best options but I know I absolutely blew my calories. I still went to boxing that night and managed to burn off about 450 calories. I usually do over 600 calories in a boxing session.
On the Friday I had to travel to Geelong (2hrs) for a 1 hour meeting that was really a waste of time. Our sister Company was shouting lunch which I was looking forward to until they told me we were having pizzas. Once again I had no control over my food choices. This makes it really hard to stay within my calories for the day. I had 3 slices of pizza and know once again I had blown my calories.
My other crappy part is that I have an injury. I won't go into it other than to say it's a real pain in my arse. This has halted my exercise completely. I had no training Friday, missed super Saturday and did nothing Sunday. I tried a bit of a run this morning but wasn't very successful. It was more walking than running. I have a group PT session tonight and I'll do as much as I can.
I also believe that drinking alcohol really stuffs up your metabolism. I have been on such a roll and now everything seems to have come to a screaming halt. I'm actually really shitting myself about this weeks weigh in. I can cope with staying the same but if I put on I will be devastated. I've been trying so hard and I don't want any of these hiccps. I've tried really hard to just have my 3 meals and no snacks to try and counter the couple of bad days I've had. Time will tell.
Only 5 days until I get married! woo hoo

Week 7 - Day 3 - Good results

I'm down 2 kg this week and I'm so excited. I can't wipe the smile off my face. I was hoping for a 1kg loss as I had my Old Boilers night on Saturday night where I drank quite a bit of alcohol. So to loss 2kg was awesome.
I had coffee with my best friend yesterday who just cried because she is "Fat." The really sad part is that no matter what I suggested to help her, she found an excuse to throw up to it. It's really frustrating trying to help others who haven't got their head in the right space and expect that because I'm losing weight that they should automatically lose weight too. I'm going to lend her Mish's book to hopefully explain to her about excuses and getting her head right. I'm also not going to let others make me feel bad for losing weight when they aren't. We all have decisions to make in life and I've made this decision to lose weight and to do Mish's program. I can't be responsible for others weight. I will offer any help I can a support any decisions others make in their efforts to lose weight but ultimately it is up to each indivdual person to do it for themselves and not just wish it would happen.
I'm down off my soap box now!
I'm off to Oaks Day tomorrow and I'm really pleased with myself because my dress is a skinny dress. Well that's how I feel anyway.

Week 7 - Day 2 - Not used to being unwell

I have an upset tummy and I never get sick so this is new for me and I don't like it much. I just feel nauseated and everytime I eat I get cramps.
I still ran on the tready this morning and then did pump. I came to work because I thought if I stayed busy I'd forget about feeling sick. It has sort of worked but not completely.
Looking forward to weigh in tomorrow. I want another kilo gone so I'll have to wait and see. My fingers are crossed!
