It's back ... 

My mojo.

My motivation.

I lost it for a while... well for about 6 weeks in fact.

But it's back!

Yesterday I started taking Optifast shakes instead of stuffing my face with CRAP FOOD... and I am feeling so much better.

I can't BELIEVE I feel this way after JUST ONE DAY.

My mind is clearer.

My mood has lifted.

I am in control again... and I'm actually looking forward to summer coming.

No matter how long it takes for this friggin house to sell... I am NOT going to let it derail my weight loss efforts again.

I was feeling absolutely DISGUSTING every day, over eating, making stupid, dumb choices and then paying for it by feeling bloated and blah all day.

And of course that impacted on everything else and everyone else.

So.  ON with the shakes and long may this good feeling last.

Today I shall be going for a walk at the mall again, then coming home to do some sewing I think.  I plan on making some little projects for Christmas presents.  I am not going all out this year on presents.  Just a few small items for families, all in one 'box' type thing.
I think I did that last year?

Can't remember.  But I know I don't want to come out on the other side of Christmas with a debt to pay off for the next year!

Cos who knows what next year holds?  We hope to be in Hamilton in a new home, but ... we will just wait and see.  


11.05 am:   well my morning is going well... I've been down to our local mall and had a walk, bought a couple of gifts for upcoming events, got some nice fresh veges so I have some to eat and am now home watching Home and Away before moving on to something else.

Whatever that might be...

4.53 pm:  I felt a bit light headed this afternoon.  Probably due to the VLC diet.  I will eat a banana, that should fix it.

It's Friday night.  Traditionally we indulge in some chips/dips and what have you.  I might just find that a bit difficult... but I will have to get past it somehow.  I'm not going to fail after only 2 days on this new kick!

I'm making the family beef stir fry with left over rice for their dinner tonight.  I will try another flavour of shake.  Can't wait (tongue in cheek).

End of Day:  12.37 am:  holy hell!  Didn't realise it was that late.  Oh well... it's been a nice evening.  Found it a bit hard to stick to the 'diet' tonight, but I DID IT!

  1. Good for you for finding you mojo again! I'm still looking for mine and think I might have left it in my high school locker ;-)
    How Archer's temp is gone today and he's feeling good.
    Fingers crossed on house sale. Hope it happens SOON!
    xo jj

  2. Great to hear your moji is vack. Keep busycand feel jn conttol and what a difference it makes.

  3. Good news, what you eat and your exercise is something you have control over, selling the house not so much. In the words of the great Rachel Hunter - it won't happen overnight but it will happen :-)
