Sorry .. its been a busy few days and I just haven’t had time to chat by … but Im leaving everything else till later so I can catch up properly with you all
- Thanks hun
And WAHOO to you on your great 10 pounds .. isn’t it fantastic!? I still remember my first 10 .. it was such a weight off my mind because by then I had started my mantra “I can’t lose 100 pounds .. but I can lose 10 pounds 10 times” so it was only 9 to go lol. Love the definition of your name too
As for your trip away .. think of it as an educational trip … if you do decide to “treat” yourself off plan .. don’t stress or it will be a wasted experience lol .. instead, embrace, enjoy and learn why you make the choices you do .. even if that is done when you get the chance to review rather than at the time of the choice
Just keep in mind a misbehaving scale is a moment in your day, your week, your month or your year … Im sure it will start behaving again
Nothing wrong with being Easily Amused .. will give you something to giggle about in my update lol.
- You are going great .. and look .. you got rid off that ickle add on last week as well as more besides .. took me 2 weeks to get rid of my add on
So be proud of your success this week hun
I hope you do manage to get your recipe done .. it sounds like something I could make for my hunny
- Im sure if you jump on the scales tomorrow it would be gone further anyway so don’t stress .. its still a move in the right direction
.. all those little “-“ in front of your numbers is looking good! I was a gym member for over a year and never attended … talk about a waste .. well .. I did attend .. but rarely .. so now I am determined to see the inside of it at least once a week if I am paying $60 a month! But I figure its 3 coffees a week that I won’t have
And noooo .. the gym is definitely not covered by health care lol … actually I don’t have Health care … we have a pretty good health system in NZ if you don’t mind waiting lists lol .. you can go private but it does cost more and you can get health insurance too as an option, but I don’t .. refused to pay so much each week for something that I would so rarely use .. would cost me less just to pay as I go than to pay every week/month for something that I may never use. I LOVE your new thought processes in regards to the fries .. and yes .. you are right .. I do admit I love on a cold day a nice cup of french fries to nibble on … fortunately we haven’t had any of those days yet though where the craving has hit .. but from the times I have been treated to fish and chips I usually am good about restricting myself to only 10-15 chips (fries). So make sure you celebrate your new knowledge on this journey with something special .. a bubble bath? A food rub? definitely something to make you feel good
- lol .. no prob .. I have had weeks like that .. Im still stunned May has gone now … mind you the temps definitely make it believable … are you getting snow down there yet?? Be careful of the amount of things you restrict in a time frame .. you don’t want your body to feel like its hard done by … and I love your goal for the gym too … Im just hoping I get there regularly 1-2 times a week lol .. will build it up .. still a little sore from Thursday lol.
- Yay about the Fitbit!! I have just been looking at them cos I want something to track how many steps I do in a day at work let alone anything else lol .. your hubby is a star for sure
I have been looking at the same Fitbit … someone is selling one I know and it looks really good
- Good on you! I haven’t been as good at food tracking .. but I have been mentally tracking better than I usually do
I am going to have supper soon .. tried giving that up and instead the 2am wake up craving would hit .. now at least I can sleep through the night lol .. good loss though anyway
Had a lovely and fun filled weekend ... busy working of course but its still been great
Soooo .. lets see .. ok .. on Friday I was a little sore after the gym on Thursday so was taking it easy-ish at work, but it was a very busy day so no chance for a break for me .. anyway ... I got home and was relaxing after dinner on the couch .. I hadn't gotten round to getting changed yet so still had on my new sparkly top .. so I was resting back on the couch and hunny was on his lazy-boy rocker with his feet up and we were watching something funny on tv .. I, of course, kept laughing ...
HIM - "Hunny?"
ME - "Yes dear?"
H - "Can you take off your top?"
M - "Huh?? Why?"
H - "you are blinding me when you laugh"
I thought about it for a minute then sighed and said ok ... BUT ... when I tried to sit up enough to take it off my abs decided to rebel reminding of what I had put them through the day before ... so here I am trying to sit up feeling like an upside-down turtle who couldn't get back up which just made us laugh .. which hurt more .. which made us laugh more etc ... after about 15 minutes, tears streaming down our cheeks and feeling out of breath I finally got control and managed to sit up. Then the MIL came in and saw the tears in my eyes and thought her son had upset me which just started us laughing again .. she looked at us like we were nuts but we finally got control again enough to tell her my sparkle had started this whole laugh-fest .. she looked a little puzzled for about 10 seconds then just said "if it sparkles . turn off the light" .. .so logical so that just set us off again .... needless to say .. it was a very good form of exercise but boy did I feel it on Saturday lol.
So Saturday it was work again and another great and busy day at work .. came home to find out hunny had put out 2 chicken breasts on the bench to defrost and the stray cat of the neighbourhood got in and nicked one of them lol .. he was not amused my hunny and really wants to set a trap for it .. as I said to my hunny "look, if that cat is willing to come into a house with 4 dogs and nick a piece of their dinner ... then its earned it lol"
So he had sausages and I had the other piece of chicken lol ... along with a plate of vegetables
Today (Sunday) was another lovely day at work .. for a long weekend in NZ the weather has been beautiful .. unfortunately the mornings are freezing lol .. but the days are lovely and work was busy again
Came home to a lovely bowl of chicken/corn soup for me .. and hunny had chicken gumbo ... I did some baking last night which I took to work for the customers but had a few cupcakes left so we will have those for supper (Coconut/Lemon .. and Vanilla cupcakes).
Soooo its been a lovely weekend and I have really enjoyed it .. cramped up something rotten last night .. but feeling better today .. its just my right leg so will have to talk to my trainer about that on Tuesday ... meanwhile tomorrow its work again .. this time in the outlet store so hopefully its busier than normal Mondays otherwise it will be a long day ... I think its going to be Panko Chicken for dinner tomorrow night .. if I tell hunny how to do it lol... on the plus side .. I have Tuesday off .. and hunny is taking it off too so we can finally have a day together which will be lovely .. other than my gym time in the afternoon that is lol ..
