TWO WALKS.... AND WORRIED

Well, much as I'd like to sleep in today, I can't.
I've put my name down for an 8 am walk!

It's a good time to walk though, as it's not too warm (if the sun's out) at that time of the day.

I've not even stuck my head out the bedroom window yet to suss out the day!

The kids are back at school today, and Stew is back at work, so it's just me and the dogs.
And Monday is my 'big' housework day... so once I'm home from the walk I shall be doing housework.

Sorry, but it's bound to be a boring day here.

It's weigh in day too.  Might just do that later on... I feel like I've stagnated again.  So WORRIED and frustrated.  I almost feel like I'm self sabotaging myself?  I get to a certain point (about here) and just go backwards again.  I really don't want to do that!

Maybe I need some help?  Or I need to change things somehow?  I know I'm getting right sick to death of what I've been eating for months on end.  Seafood. Salads. Meat and veg.  And the very occasional 'evil' meal.  *sigh*  

I SIMPLY CANNOT LET THE ROT SET IN AGAIN. 

I'm due for my next Hba1c blood test this week.  I reckon I will go up a bit... hopefully not too much!  But I have been having some carbs.  That means an up for sure. That worries me too.  Also, my last blood test hurt like buggery!  Worst one in forever. I'm a bit nervous about having another blood test now.

ONWARD...

8 am is a really lovely time to go walking!  It was brisk (cool) but once we set off it was just perfect.  Not too hot.  The sky hasn't a cloud in it, such a glorious day.
It's going to be very interesting to see how I cope over summer this year?  Usually I literally melt and feel over hot for MONTHS!  This year, with the weight being less, it might be easier.  Well... I am really hoping so!


 ABOVE: Today's walk photo.  Some days I feel fat.  Today is one of them.  *sigh*
Wish I could just be happy with myself.  But I look at all the other girls and I still feel like the fatty.  It shouldn't MATTER, but it just does.

SOMETHING PRETTY SPECIAL JUST HAPPENED.  I wasn't going to show you... cos my number is STILL embarrassing... but here goes:



ABOVE:  I cracked it.  I'm finally back into double digits.  Now I have WANT to see an 8 instead of a 9 !
Wonder how long that will take?

Cos I want that SO BAD.


I'm having a little 'war' with a company down the road.  More on THAT... tomorrow.

For now, I need to get dinner sorted for the family, cos I have walk Number 2 at 7 pm tonight! 

Last walk for today was a nice one, a bit short again.  Not really enjoying the super short ones ... I don't feel like I've done enough!

ABOVE:  I hid in the back this time... wasn't feeling smiley at all.  Not gunna tell ya why either.  Just was a bit down.

And that's me day done and dusted.  I'm going to watch some stupid TV till bedtime, or watch some You Tube videos... either way I'm clocking off.  Catch ya tomorrow.

    I read somewhere sorry can't remember where. If you eat the same meal everyday your body somehow gets used to it and you don't lose wait. Maybe you have to come up with a meal plan so you're not repeating the same stuff.

  2. I understand that feeling. I also get being over the same meals. It seems like it might be worth reconsidering your meals and range of ingredients a bit. I know you aren't counting calories but is it worth considering the links and recipes etc people sent you when you started this way of eating?

    Here is one idea:I have been making crumbed chicken using egg and almond flour. Almond flour is expensive but once in a while it makes me feel I am eating a filling comforting food without the carb content. If you want a bit of flavour you can add anything but onion powder and garlic salt is good. Eat with coleslaw and it's like a treat.

    You are right, variety helps immensely. Not feeling restricted helps immensely. You are a really good cook, you can do this.

    1. And if you add some parmesan cheese to the almond flour it goes crispy! Just dip you chicken or fish or whatever into beaten egg then the almond flour parmesan mix. I also cut up chicken into bite size pieces and toss with all purpose seasoning, almond flour and a KFC spice I make up and cook in a pan then have over salad - it really is good!!

  12. FANTASTIC all your dedication hard work has paid off, go to library get out "what the fat" LCHF low carb high fat maybe a month on that change it up then go again. Are you going to go back swimming? And what about bike riding..

    1. Our local pool is undergoing a total re-furb, so is not useable for a couple of years. Next option is Te Awamutu, which is a bit far to go on a daily basis unfortunately. I'd love to get one of those backyard pools and rig up some sort of 'bungy' system to swim and stay in the same place... but that's not in the budget right now. Brylee uses the bike. And I fell off it and lost my confidence totally.
