BETTER LATE THAN NEVER ...........18th MAY 2011

I certainly didn't finish as strong or any where near like I wanted to do, but oh boy I HAVE LEARNT heaps.
To any one that is reading this blog....please don't give up, this program is amazing and it does work.  
I now weigh 96.1kg.....and I  haven't done any exercise or watched what I am eating for at least 3 - 4 weeks.  One can only imagine how much I would have lost if I had kept up the exercise and the eating plan.  I do plan on bringing in a lot of the recipes into my everyday life coz they are delicious plus oh so tasty.
I also do want to exercise and keep going, even if the eating isn't as good.  If you fall off the wagon, DON'T STRESS ABOUT IT, just continue the eating plan the next meal.  AND feel good that you did continue.  We are all entitled to make mistakes, and I made quite a few while on this change.
To keep you motivated keep reading the blogs and try and stay in touch as much as you can with other people that are on this program.

When I eventually start what I shouldn't have stopped, I will blog again.

Day Seventy Four - Thursday to Day Seventy Nine - Tuesday

Wow, what a big let down.... I really feel like I have let myself down badly.  So disappointed in myself, its like i have set up myself to fail on purpose.  Somehow I will get back on track. 
Weigh tomorrow morning and I know it won't be good at all.

Tuesday, May 3, 2011

Day Seventy One

Biggest Loser Finale................................excellent show to watch....they are all so amazing.  I really find the ones that have lost the weight without all that help - the one's that got eliminated earlier in the show - are amazing, they know they have eyes on them but then they have all the temptations out here in the real world.
But I also love the ones on the show too, coz they have had to do all the exercises set out for them......they are amazing also.
and then we can't forget COMMANDO - how frigging good does he look (hahaha and I haven't even seen him yet BUT I know he will look good, he looks good in anything and nothing.....(sweet as)
Nice, just seen him.  I would do as many burpees as i could to get a cuddle :)  :)  :)

No exercise but I did do a lot of gardening....
Cheers :)

Day Seventy - Sunday

Well, hallelulah.........................I have remembered to blog....
Watching the Biggest Loser, and Nate got eliminated for the second time but what an amazing change in him.

Wow, Commando looks good.........

Oops got side tracked there......still trying to get back into it.   I am so hoping I do

Day Sixty Nine - SATURDAY

Hmmmmm and another day that is not a good one.............

Day Sixty Eight - FRIDAY

Can't remember.........obviously not very good :(

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Day Sixty Seven

Oh My God, did you  see COMMANDO with his shirt offfffffffff,  hot hot hot.   Thank you so much ladies for making sure he did that.  That made my day :)

Now back to the normal old crap,  no exercise again today but eating was ok.  Watching the Biggest Loser was good motivation but the problem is by the time tomorrow comes around that motivation might be gone....
I really hope i can JFDI. 

Wednesday, April 27, 2011

Day Sixty Six

Well nothing good to report exercise.....eating was ok except for the two white choc mud cakes I had.....just because.
Forgot to weigh in so I shall do it tomorrow morning.  I know I would have put on weight but now I just have to try and keep losing it.....BUT i need to get my fat ass moving.

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

Day Sixty Five

Surprise, Surprise.......I was real good today.  No Carbs today - well I am pretty sure i haven't coz i didn't do the exact eating plan but tried to stick close to it.   I did do some exercise but still not enough especially considering it is weigh in day tomorrow.  Ah well, just have to improve for the next one..   At least my head is in the right place now :)  (besides on my shoulders, which I am happy about)

They Shall Grow Not Old, As We That Are Left Grow Old,
Age Shall Not Weary Them, Nor the Years Condemn,
At The Going Down Of The Sun, And In The Morning,
We Will Remember Them.

Day Sixty Three

Weight will be going on this week,  I can feel it.. :(    I know its my own fault, just can't seem to get my head in the right place...   But am going to see someone I haven't seen for quite a while tomorrow and I will ride my bike to get there!   and.......ride it home.
Another bad day................

Saturday, April 23, 2011

Day Sixty Two

I finally went for  a bike ride, approx 8km and burnt approx 260calories, better than nothing.  Definitely getting better coz I wasn't as wiped out as I usually am and I was a couple of minutes quicker - woohoo.  Now to get out to the GymGarage tomorrow in the morning and do some weights.  
Happy Easter All, hope Easter Bunny comes to you but for those trying to lose weight choose another option to chocolate - I am having prawns.   Most likely too many but so so much better calorie wise than chocolate.
Goodnight :)

Day Sixty One - FRIDAY

Late once again.........just another failed day anyway.  Hot Cross Buns for brekky, Roast Pork .........yes with Crackling & some roast veg & Prawns.... PLUS Trifle - made with  choc cake, jelly, custard, jam and CrEaM, yummo.  (that last lot was for lunch..not brekky:) )
Was going to write no exercise but we did go for a walk, not a very fast one but at least it was a walk.
Hopefully Saturday will be better, I really want to get down to 95kg, coz I have promised myself a nice ring for that achievement.  Then the next milestone will be to get to the Eighties.........
I know I am struggling but at least I am not completely giving up, still need to sort out lots of problems....I think I need to go over all the pre season tasks with the 12WBT Program.

Friday, April 22, 2011

Day Sixty - THURSDAY

Late again, such is life.   I am definitely becoming too relaxed with my diet stuff, It seems to be that I notice I am losing weight still so for some reason I have to eat.  Self Sabotage back at it again, she is such a bitch, and I can't figure out why, I did come to the realisation last night in the shower that I was just thinking that for some reason I don't deserve to be nice and slim.......................what the?????   There is so much more I need to find out about why I sabotage my weight loss but I don't know how.   I think the main thing is not to let that nasty SS creep in too much.  
Mind you, I didn't even help today with no exercise and then eating some violet crumble and choc coated peanuts !!!!!!!! 
I really want to see 95kg or less on the scales,  I shall keep plodding along and hopefully have a LOT of light bulb moments to show me the way.

Day Fifty Nine

I MUST BE SICK...................... weighed in today and somehow I have lost more weight..down to 95.7kg, I thought I would be really struggling to get to this number.  I really don't understand how I am there.   I need to go to the doctors anyway, maybe I should get them to check for some bloody illness where you lose weight.  Don't get me wrong, I am real happy about this, I just don't understand HOW.  I have hardly exercised, I am trying to eat well but as I have been saying - the other day I was making mud cakes and sampled three cupcakes then tasted the mixture as well...then the weekends have not been flash.
Really makes me wonder, can you imagine how much I would have lost if I had been exercising and following the eating plan

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

Day Fifty Eight

Not a great day, I did  a bike ride which I am enjoying, but that was all. The eating side was ok, but I think if I don't watch out it will start creeping back on......
I was feeling so good doing all the exercise, especially the weight sessions, and I really noticed the changes happening so I don't understand why I don't go back.  Shall give it a bash tomorrow in my GymGarage :) - hopefully 

Day Fifty Seven - MONDAY

Cannot work out why I can do stuff like Sunday and then Monday just don't bother to do a thing....Bloody baking mud cakes as well does not help at all.   
...................Just tried an adjusted White Choc Mud Cake recipe which tastes absolutely divine, so I shall keep that one.   and of course I had to try it to make sure it was good, but I didn't have to try it three or four times..!!
Hopefully Tuesday will be a better day. :)

Day Fifty Six

Well, I did surprise myself.  For my mini milestone on the 12 WBT program (didn't do exactly what Mish wanted but I put in and ok of an effort)

Bike Ride  10.5km  48min
Rowing Machine  1000 counts  24.55min
Treadmill   1.05km  12min

Was really impressed with my bike ride and the rowing machine ( did have a problem with the rower but the battery had come out of where it was meant to be)
I just got so bored with the Treadmill and I was going to go for a walk but I ended up having to pick up my son then I was cooking..........I know, I know,.............excuses, excuses.

Day Fifty Five - SATURDAY

Just not feeling it,  having my own little pity party i think.  Just need to get of my freaking fat arse and do what I should be doing to get rid of this fat on my body.....IT JUST DOESN'T BELONG THERE
Saturday night, went to a mini concert and drank............doh.....Eight cans of Bourbon and 1 can of Beer, but oh my god it tasted so good....................But no More.
I really need to try and do the mini triathlon to see how I will take forever i think, just need to get off my fat ass and do it!!!
Hopefully next post will be about that..   :)

Day Fifty Four - FRIDAY

Well,............. Failed miserably......

Friday, April 15, 2011

Day Fifty Three - Thursday

Well definatley not a good day, no exercise, eating was so, so.  Just not feeling it and starting to be real negative.  :(

Thursday, April 14, 2011

Day Fifty Two - WEDNESDAY

I am so up and down with all this eating and exercising, can't seem to stick to it but then I don't want to put the weight back on either.   Can't afford to following Mish's eating plan worse luck, so this weekend I shall try and plan menus for myself and two teenagers to follow - goodluck with that I say considering its holidays now too - but I shall try.  They can always just have water if they don't like what we are going to have :)
I didn't exercise yesterday either.  But at least I didn't put on weight at the weigh in but I only lost 100 grams, but at least its a weightloss.

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Day Fifty One

Well, today was ok.  Exercise was alright, should have done more considering it is weigh in tomorrow and I really don't think there will be much change with my weight.  Food could be a lot better, really having trouble with portion control at dinner time.
Sooo Tired,  Goodnight Blog :)

Monday, April 11, 2011

Day Fifty

Shock......Horror.........I actually exercised today and I .....................................ENJOYED it.  I was absolutely amazed.  I even ran on the treadmill for a few minute intervals, all up about four minutes only though, but I still ran.   Also did about 10 minutes on the cross trainer then maybe 8minutes on the rower.  The rowing machine really knocks me though, no idea why.    BUT WAIT THERE'S MORE.....
Then I decided to go for a bike ride and my son came along with me which was great, really enjoyed it.
I burnt 465 calories in 1 hour and 20 minutes.  So I was really pleased with myself.
I think the most amazing thing was that I really enjoyed it all, especially the bike ride.  
Now I really need to make sure I stop the sabotaging my ways and especially my achievements.

Day Forty Nine

Sunday, well at long last I actually got off my fat ass, and went for a ride.... burnt approx 237 calories in 38mins which I thought was real good.  I did go hard at it too, so I think it went well.  I am going to try to ride a bit more this week.
Woops battery is going flat, bye

Day Forty Eight - SATURDAY.......:)

and again nothing to report and of course i am late with the exercise and not eating that well at all.
Tomorrow is another day

Friday, April 8, 2011

Day Forty Seven

Hmmmm - another day of no exercise and bad eating.  I still haven't given up completely though.  I am going to go on a bike ride tomorrow - as long as my tyres are ok of course.  Here's hoping.......  Then back to eating correctly.  AND exercising....  
No rest for the wicked they say.........well, I hope I am soooooo WiCkEd....  :)

DAY FORTY Six - Thursday

Well what a non eventful day in the weightloss and exercise department......  :(

Wednesday, April 6, 2011

Day Forty Five

No way was I getting up at 5.30am in the wee hours of the morning to exercise, I absolutely hated it, not really the exercise but certainly that time of the morning.  
But besides that I did not exercise today because I was working till late, and yes I could have went and exercised but I didn't.   The care factor for some reason isn't very high lately, hopefully I will recover soon.

Tuesday, April 5, 2011

Day Forty Four

Not real keen on waking up at 5.30am at all, seems ridiculous.   I am really starting to lose my mojo with this whole eating and exercising thing.  Still exercising at least and trying to eat ok, but .............

Day Forty Two & Day Forty Three

Two days in one.......well Sunday was just a Sunday, no exercise that I can remember.  Just another day in my boring life. 

MONDAY ( Day Forty Three) -
Well I thought I would try and be more organised this week with exercise since I have a real busy week coming up, so I decided I would start getting up at 5.30am to exercise.................Bloody Hell....that is ridiculous.............I felt like a freak getting out in my GymGarage to exercise at that time.  It Was Dark !
Weird, but I did it.   Food was ok, only just.  Really need to watch my portion size at night time dinners.

Saturday, April 2, 2011

Day Forty One

Saturday again,  Not too bad a day, I did two exercise sessions, all up I burnt approx 450 calories.  So not too bad for a Saturday.  Hoping to go for a bike ride tomorrow after my bike tire is fixed, shall be interesting to see how many calories I can burn.
:)    :) 

Friday, April 1, 2011

Day Forty

Hmmmmmmmm,  well no exercise again, shall hopefully do a super session tomorrow, but I am sick of stressing about it if I don't.....sick of not sticking to a good eating plan which is affordable.   Shall sleep on it.

Thursday, March 31, 2011

Day Thirty Nine

Not a Great Day, no exercise and food wasn't as good as it should have been.  I don't think the calories were too bad but I just didn't eat properly as far as I'm concerned.  
Unexpectedly had to work so that threw me a bit but I still could have exercised later, but then my daughter annoyed the hell out of me and I just fell in a heap and lost my mojo, can't work out why though.
I think the best thing for me is to exercise earlier in the day and get it out of the way, especially if I can.  Shall try tomorrow.
Cheers :)

Day Thirty Eight - Wednesday (MISSED AGAIN)


Tuesday, March 29, 2011

Day Thirty Seven

Weigh in day tomorrow morning, I don't think I am going to do real well, especially considering my huge blowout on my Birthday.   It will be fine though.
I am so impressed with myself in the way that I am feeling, so much stronger, recovering quicker, can definately move faster on the Treadmill - its weird coz I remember when I first started walking at 5km and I thought it was going to kill me, but now, I can do it no worries, I still work up a good sweat but it isn't no where near as hard as it was.  I can actually do a full situp now, in the beginning I could barely lift my shoulders off the floor.  
I just wonder how I will go now coz I am finding it harder to stick to the eating plan just because of the costs.  I really need to plan some menus....urgently.

Goodnight :)

Monday, March 28, 2011

Day Thirty Six

Monday, the start of that week again........oh how I don't miss you at all.    Talk about not getting much done today but at least I did do some exercise, not as much as I would have liked.  Burnt about 235 calories, better than nothing.
Definately noticing changes in my body, put on some old jeans of mine today and they were oh so loose, felt great, can't wait for the day that they completely fall off !!!!!!!  I think I will so exciting....
So tired today, after such a busy weekend, late nights and early mornings....
Sweet Dreams All :)

Day Thirty Five

What a day,  HUGE, HUGE, HUGE Blow Out.........but it was my birthday.  I am not going to worry about it too much, its done and dusted.  I will be fine, another good workout tomorrow is on the TO DO LIST.
Great Brekky at Weis Restaurant then a bit of junk, not too much - but add some beers and oh my god, but wait there's more.........................some bourbon and .................aaaarrrrggghhh,.............PIZZA -  but at least I added diet coke, caffeine free :)  :)
Well weigh in day will be very interesting, hey.    Really enjoying my workouts especially when I am not in a hurry and know that I have heaps of other things to do.    Am trying to find some 5kg weights at the moment but oh my goodness, they are quite pricey aren't they.    Searching online now to see if there is something out their in the big world wide web a bit cheaper.
Signing off today......Karen
Cheers :)
