Still here and getting fitter

I haven't been blogging (just had a little break), but have been getting fitter this year.

Hubby and I joined a personal fitness studio called Vision Personal Training, and I love it!  Never thought I'd say that about exercise.  Besides the exercise increasing, I also have increased my intake of protein! Never eaten so much meat before.

It's been great. Brent and I factor exercise into our date night that's saying something :)

Now I'm under 100kg and my next goal is to get under 90kg.

Just ate veggies for dinner and liked it!

Last night Brent decided it was time to use up some veggies sitting in the fridge. I normally use up everything before the next lot of veggies are delivered on Thursday of every week (by Farmers Direct). I still love the service...This week I failed to use up all my veggies and had about 8 zucchini, 8 carrots, a head of broccoli and an eggplant to use in one day.  The next delivery arrives today.

So last night Brent starts chopping, and then I join in chopping, and I end up doubling the amount he was going to cook. We didn't manage to use all the veggies up but have made a good sized dent in the veggie oversupply, and we ate the whole lot up.  It was so simple but so tasty - just stir fried veggies with garlic and oyster sauce.  But they were really yummy.  And so that's all I ate last night - not even rice or any meat. No-one complained.

Almost 0 points!

Time to stop eating my emotions

Hi there.  It's been ages since I last came here.  And I'm back again with my tail between my legs! I feel  like I've been saying that a lot lately.

So it's time to stop eating my emotions.  Not sure if it's hormonal, or just feeling flat...whatever the reason, I don't need to eat to feel better cos in the end I feel worse!

I've weighed in to face the music and I'm up to 110.4kg, so that's enough! Back to tracking and back to taking control of what goes into my mouth!

Okay Okay...stop being so dramatic!

I'm alive, but have been eating my emotions for the last couple of weeks.  I haven't got time to tell you everything right now cos I've got to get to work. But I'll come back and add more after school...

Ate it - tracked it! Feel better!

I know that the temptation with a blow-out day is to make every day after it a blow-out day - then if I don't get my head back in the game, I end up with a blow-out week.

This morning I tracked yesterday's food...which was all good, really good, until I went to visit my friend.  Every Tuesday when my kids are at piano lessons I visit my friend and my god-daughter, and we have pre-dinner treats.  It's a bit late for afternoon tea, so it's a pre-dinner cakes and rubbish.  I don't want to be anti-social so I eat whatever is there!

So, I tracked it this morning, and feel better! AND, I still have plenty of weeklies left...

New name for Tready needed...

I've got to keep my Paris goal in sight, so I'm thinking of renaming my treadmill to get me motivated to exercise.  Its name at the moment is Tready, but I was thinking of renaming it 'Paris', or maybe 'Francois', but that's kinda boring.  Has anyone got any other ideas? 

I DID WI this morning after all, and despite my worst fears, I lost 100gms! Yay, who would rejoice with a 100gm loss? ME, cos I thought it was going to be a gain. 

But maybe I'll do another WI tomorrow, and instead of pigging out on WI day, I'll stick with the program today, and WI tomorrow (again). 

My aim for today - not to use my weeklies!

Better eat breakfast now - I have heaps of eggs in the fridge, so I think I'll have a couple of eggs on toast! 
See you all later, have a great day :D

Harvest time in the garden

I really don't have a green thumb - at all. But have managed to grow a few veggies over autumn and winter. So here's the proof. Can't bring myself to eat them :(

Just can't have it in the house!

What a weekend I've had.  It's been lots of fun but very social, which means lots of food! It shouldn't necessarily have to mean 'lots of food' but for some reason in my world social = lots of food. A bit of an eye opener really...well, not really, but it's something I need to change in my perception.  I can be social without eating too much.

We had a dear friend's baby shower at our house, and the afternoon tea was astounding, and there was a lot left over which we did manage to give away, but not enough was given away! So then there was Thai takeaway after the baby shower, and white bread sandwiches yesterday, and leftover Thai takeaway for dinner, followed by leftover cakes from Saturday... sigh.  I feel like I sigh a lot lately.  So it's a fruit and veggie day again today, another miracle needed!

Weigh in tomorrow will reveal all. Might have to visit Tready which I should be doing anyway... he feels lonely.

I'm cooking little cherry tomatoes for breakfast, and then will have a grapefruit and a cuppa.

Olympic Fever

I get a bit obsessive at times, and of course, I'm really into the olympic games at the moment.  The disadvantage of living in the Southern Hemisphere is that it's on at night and carries on into the wee hours of the morning.  I stay up a lot longer than I should, and try to keep awake to watch for any sign of Australia or NZ winning a medal.

The problem with staying up till 2 or 3am is obviously sleep deprivation, which makes Heather a bit dippy and grumpy all rolled into one. The other problem is that I tend to snack while watching the TV...I ate a mini magnum one night after Brent went to bed. I also tend to fall asleep on the couch in the afternoons to make up for lost sleep. Maybe if I got onto the treadmill while watching all these amazing athletes competing?

Weigh In day relief!

Yep, I'm relieved.  I weighed in today and lost 300gms!  Woohoo! I'm relieved cos it could have easily been a gain after the huge meat weekend amongst other hi-cal food. That's a 900gm difference from Monday morning (yesterday) to this morning which is better than the gain I was expecting.

My fruit, veggie and prawn day yesterday must have counteracted the overeating from the weekend, so that's sooooo gooood! Gonna be good today!
