Default Aussie Chicks 2008 - Take III

Here we go again! I noticed we busted through the Magic 500, so I took the initiative to start afresh. (Does that mean I get to have a chocolate now?)

:P

I will bookmark this new thread. Ok, so I've text my personal trainer and told him that I've lost the plot and we're going to nut something out on Wednesday to get me motivated and back on track.

For lunch today I had a 6 inch meatball sub from Subway. Probably not the bestest thing I could have eaten but I only had $4 to my name and the sub of the day is $3.90 so that was about the best option I could think of.

Bring on payday tomorrow when I can buy some proper food!

I am so excited, I have made a friend. A good one. She works for the company that I used to work for and is the rep for my hospital. We have been going out lately, and we're just getting along so well, it's all very comfortable and we can just hang around in our tracky daks and have fun. She wants to lose weight too, so I'm hoping having a diet buddy will be helpful!

Fingers crossed for me - I've got pathophysiology exam #2 this week! I have been studying like CRAZY, so I hope I do well!

Garden's looking good Kel!

I went out for dinner last night on a work related shout and god it was divine. Garlic bread to start then a lamb shank with mashed potatoes and roast veggies followed by creme brulee.

No wonder I'm packing on weight!!

Back on board today though and I've started the day with a good breakfast of my favourite muesli.

Today I will:

1) Write down everything that I eat.
2) Stick to my points.
3) GO TO THE GYM!!!!!
4) Write a list for my grocery shopping.
5) Think of some nice things to cook for the next week's meals.

hiya chicks..

Kel your garden looks great and i really like the colour of your shed.. makes the plants really green ..


Julia i hope you can find your mojo again .. mine ran away on friday lol.

I have been feeling crap since frieday.. or was it thursday.. not sure now.. im tired all the time and my emotions are on a nasty rollercoaster...

PMS is hitting hard and i still dont have TOM.. grrrr... my legs ache for no reason im hardly sleeping and one minute im happy the next im really blue.. and i have gained 1.2 kg.. so i just know any minute now....... lol

Friday morning i was really happy after buying my 18's but after i got home i looked in my cupboard at all the tops i love.. and realised i cant wear any more.. they look rediculous.. .. i got blue and continued my pity party on saturday .. spent most the day on the couch shovelling crap.. ( amazingly enough i didnt go over in cals by much becuase i skipped dinner)

Late saturday afternoon i got sick of myself and decided to go and sort out my wardrobe. I tryed everything on and made two piles.. ... one to go one to stay.. everything that was too big went into one pile ... i didnt even keep my favourites .. i took out 35 items that are to big lol.. and i didnt even go through my jackets.. .. Sunday i went out with my friend on a port river dolphin criuse.. that was fabulous. got lunch and dolphin sightings for $14 .. and $11 for the kids.. we had a great time.. and went to the market afterwards.. .. when i got home.. i listed all my old clothes on ebay..
http://search.ebay.com.au/_W0QQsassZ2littlemessmakers
my fav tops is the tie dyed ones and the jade green one.. and it looks like other agree becuase they are selling... no turning back now.. lol

These clothes have got to me before.. i have been at this point.. where they dont fit .. and i was stupid.. i gained back so i could wear them... yes there were other things going on at the time.. with leahs allergies.. but.. i wanted to get back in them.. and i ended up growing out of them the other way.. lol.. 15 kg heavier then i had ever been..

anyway.. im fine but very tired.. gonna go take a multi and have some breakfast.. hope you'll have a good day .. fingers crossed my hormones dont lead to me to murdering anyone today.... oh wait hubby isnt home... im safe from that manslaughter charge for another month... lol

Sorry to hear that you've got a bit of a mind trip going on Amy. I know it's hard to get rid of old favourites but just think of all the lovely new clothes you will be able to wear! I hope you feel better soon.

I had a great day yesterday, stuck to my points and had a great workout at the gym.

My goals for today are:

1) Eat no more than 20 points.
2) Have a great workout at the gym.

I caught up with Lindor again yesterday after work and we went for a lovely long stroll around the river.

I'm having today and tomorrow off work, as I will be working every weekend for the rest of the year. Well that's the plan, but who knows with Bunnings? I'm going to spend the morning in the garden.

At this point in the week I am very confident I will lose some weight at Friday's weigh-in. Of course it means I have to be a bit disciplined on my days off, but I really want the scales to shift, so I'm doing it!!!

Amy I'm a firm believer in me time. Everyone needs it and just because you're a mum doesn't mean you shouldn't enjoy spending time by yourself. Happy birthday too, I hope you have a great day!

I had a good day yesterday. Went half a point over my daily points allowance but am not too concened about that.

I did have a kick-arse session at the gym and got to have a good chat with my trainer. I told him how I've been feeling unmotivated and have gotten off plan and he made a few really good suggestions that I'm confident will help to give me a good new start.

I've realised that the weekends are what stuffs me up every week without fail. I am good with my diet and go to the gym Monday through to Thursday and then Friday, Saturday and Sunday I generally do no exercise and my diet goes out the window.

So, he suggested that I have a couple of rest days during the week and have Saturday and Sunday as gym days as that is likely to make me more conscious of what I'm eating and if I do over eat, the exercise will help to counteract it.

Also, he said that he wants me to set a goal of doing 240 minutes cardio every week as that's what he usually recommends people do if they want to lose weight. Looking back over my training diary, I've really only been doing around 140 minutes a week so that will no doubt make a difference.

He also suggested that I start getting him or someone else to check over my food diary so that I'm held accountable to it. That's a scary thought but a very good idea because I know it'll make me think twice about what I'm eating.

I'm really stoked to have these new things to focus on and I think it'll make a big difference.

Keeping on track with food will be a challenge as I've got several trips coming up - working in the North Island for 2 days at the end of the month then a 5 day work trip to Canada so I'll have to think of some strategies to keep on track while I'm away from home. My downfall is eating out and seeing what everyone else is eating - I tend to think, bugger the diet I want to eat that too!
