FAR OUT, SOME DAYS I END UP WRITING A BOOK!

Yesterday... I did go on a bit eh? I will try not to give you all a horror/long post today!

I LIE sometimes..... about staying on track..... but yesterday.... I DID STAY ON TRACK! And today.... I am going to do it AGAIN. I know each and every day will be a challenge - to turn the gains around and become that rather good looking woman again. I am vain, I think I looked good at 70 kgs, so .... I am heading there again.

No more crying while stuffing my mouth full of crap..... I hate feeling like such a failure.

Today is another chance to make myself feel fantastic.... to smile and be happy.... and...... it's only 3 more sleeps till the kids go back to school! Ya bloody hoooooo.

Next Monday... another small change.... I am going to drop the kids off at school and then go swimming .... and I am going to do that at least twice a week. I love swimming! Small steps....

The kids and I are going to have lunch in town with Stew today.... my immediate thought was "Fuck, what can I eat that doesn't have any carbs?"... and I felt a bit down.... until my memory kicked in ....




CHICKEN SALAD... YUMMY YUMMY..... ok, without all the salad dressing maybe. You can eat out healthily, YOU CAN.

So, we went to lunch, I ordered a chicken salad, forgot to say "hold the crispy noodles", so had to take them all off.... which I DID.... feeling like I did well. I also had... a big glass of ice. Perfect.

I am starting to get a good headache, no doubt from witholding all the carbs.. better go take a painkiller pill... or I will be miserable later.

I'm hanging in there, just. Stew is home and cooking dinner ...steak and whatever! I had some watermelon....and felt bad cos it was probably full of sugar. But so nice! It's so hot today... we are having a long hot summer for sure.

End of Day: and I made it through another day ON TRACK, no lies!!! Stew just ate a bowl full of nuts/fruit/seeds.. I had NONE!

NSV: I didn't eat the noodles, I did stay on track. nite nite.

  2. You know, you have all these exciting changes in your life happening, Stew's job move, your potential home move, kids moving out, new start for Izzy, why not a new start for you?....just to round it all off, wouldn't that just be the perfect "lite" icing on the cake so to speak?...

    Take the opportunity while you can, grab it with both hands and don't let go !!! Focus on the here and now as the future well, who knows?.. make it all count NOW..

    "I'm gonna look GREAT in 2008, by watching what I ATE and losing this damn WEIGHT" :)..

    not grammatically correct, but you know what I mean LOL :)

  3. It's great to hear you sounding positive and upbeat again, Chris!

    I am sure that things will be a little easier for you once the kids are back at school, and that you have a little more breathing space for yourself!

    The swimming sounds like a GREAT plan and with that, I am sure that it will motivate you to stay on track with your eating too.

    You CAN do this I am sure of it as you seem like an extremely determaind gal ;-)

    Have a great weekend!

  19. Sounds like a good day. As per the watermelon. Its one fruit you do not have to worry about. Most of it is water. So enjoy, and stop stressing about being perfect. Have a wonderful weekend.
