Weigh in

Monday and weigh day and I'm down another 500gms. I was hoping for more as I've been so super good for three weeks now. I just have to remember ... slow and easy wins the race, right! I'm so close to being a 70's girl again I can almost taste it. I WILL DO IT. I'm determined. I had a good weekend food wise, very sensible although didn't quite drink all my water. It was too flippin cold. I don't know what happened to the weather over the weekend. I just couldn't get warm on Saturday. Miserable weather. At least managed to get my lawns mowed on Sunday. Well off to the supermarket. Need to stock up on supplies so I can be an angel this week too. Ciao.

Two days in a row ....

I've drunk 1.6 litres of water.
That's an awful lot of piddling. Still very much on track and motivated. Happy weekend everyone .... It's going to be a good one.

It's Thursday!!!!!!

That means no kids. It means I can go home, put my feet up and relax and not worry about dinner, washing, homework etc......

Bliss.

I get to recharge the old battery.

But I'm feeling mighty fine this week. Had an "issue" with one of the kids but put it behind us now.

I had an unpleasant experience yesterday. I went to make myself a salad for lunch - opened my grated cheese and it had huge chunks of mould in it. I nearly gagged there and then. I'd only bought it on Monday!!! I should have taken it back but I just felt so sick I just threw it in the bin. It's put me off cheese at the moment. But it's having the effect that everytime I feel like eating this image of the cheese pops into my brain and totally puts me off. Great outcome but a lousy visual tool I tell you.

So despite the cheese incident I'm feeling a bit slim at the moment. I haven't lost as much as Chris H (way to go mate) but I'm feeling great. With the anticipation of a fine weekend ahead I'm ready for some activity. A walk and a good workout in the garden should be in order. I'm getting excited just thinking about it.

I'm off to Bunnings at lunchtime. Catching up with a friend for lunch and doing a bit of retail therapy. I need some more pots and a new broom and anything else that might catch my eye.

Hope you all have a great Thursday!!!

Run down ....

October ... the days are flying by. Christmas soon. Holidays. Summer.

I've managed to lose 1.5 kgs so far. I'm in my third week now so fingers crossed I don't stuff it up. Eating is going well, I think I have shrunk my tummy at last as I'm not looking to stuff too much food down there. I'm trying to eat a lot more slowly too. Have a couple of mouthfuls, put my knife and fork down, etc. I read somewhere once that it takes 20 minutes for the brain to receive the signal that you're full so I'm stretching it out. I also don't drink water with my dinner as apparently it slows down the digestic process. Something about diluting the acid that breaks down the food in your stomach. I'm just eating lots of salads with my lamb, steak, chicken etc and I try to have fish once a week. I've cut down on a lot of carbs but I'm not depriving myself.

I've got myself some new shoes for walking and trackies etc so I'm ready to start off on the exercise phase. I'm also going to try the pool shortly as well.

I'm loving daylight saving - not the cold snap though - but the last couple of days have been mild and I'm really looking forward to the rain disappearing so I can start spending some time outside after work. I know my gardens will love it.

We finally found out what was wrong with Mr T. He's got a gastric ulcer. He has a floppy valve in his stomach causing all the acid to come up. So he's now on Losec and it seems to be working. At least we're starting to get some good night's sleep. It is a relief because at the back of his mind he was thinking the C word. But his xrays and blood tests all came back clear.


Starting to get excited as we're taking some extra time off over Labour Weekend to reunite Mr T with his boat and we're going camping. There's a few of us going so it will be heaps of fun.

And lastly some more good news ..... Grandbaby no.3 is on it's way. Lucas is going to be a big little brother. Due in April. This one we're going to try and cook a bit longer.

Till the next time. Ciao.

Miserable day . . .

Winter has well and truly arrived.   A very bleak day,  - wet, cold and windy.  The garden at work is looking quite glum.   Look...
