Keeping it very simple right now, Kim. I'm extremely busy at work so that coupled with the gym and I'm away from home 12.5 hours each day. Probably a good thing as it keeps me busy and not thinking about eating naughty things. I know if I just keep on doing what I'm doing, I'll get there one day at a time ;)

90.6kg as of this morning :D

It is always when we are idle that the stomach wanders from the true path. May you long be busy! :shock: :lol:

You are doing very well at present. You should be proud of your turn around and your progress. :D

Now...keep at it!

Am in complete agreement with you! As much as the busy days are very exhausting, it's also great because they days goes by fast and each day the scales drop! It's a good "jump start" to the forever journey ahead :) and one I'm more than ready for. 4 weeks of insane busy work load shall fingers crossed see me around the 87kg mark. I'll work my butt off to get there, I'm ready!

Hehe, yeah my mind is in completely the right place at present all round.. As for the job, it's mostly auto pilot during the year, systems and procedures in place, I can mostly work remote and I have great staff who have been with us a fair time, are happy and know their jobs under me..

Though sad, if you feel like a slave to your boss/job :cry: far more preferable to feel like a loyal servant, as long as you don't become a slave to your body's call for replenishment at the end of a long working day, you will be the master in your battles!!! :wink: :lol:

:lol: This forum is filled with puns and metaphors and I wouldn't have it any other way!!! ;)

Terry and I are going to be kicking a lot of butt from here from now on, I can feel it :) First weigh in is tomorrow morning so I will post results then. Then after that, back into the 80's and to get some new numbers again! I've gotta say I'm exhausted though :cry: working such long days then hitting the gym (or kettle bells like last night) is getting harder. I have a bit of a sore throat this morning and nose is sniffly...deciding if it's a good idea to do aqua aerobics tonight or not. I want to keep my exercising up but I'm worried getting out of a warm pool into cold air and driving home in wet togs is not going to do me any favours. Will see how I feel!

Hey Shelley,

I know you're working long hours, and exercise can be difficult to squeeze in during these times. However, if you're feeling a bit "run down" to boot, perhaps braving the cold air is not ideal; why not see if you can get your hands on one of those exercise DVDs or download one from youtube, and enjoy an indoor workout at your own pace then if it gets too much (with your sniffles) you can stop temporarily???

Just a thought....

Whatever you decide, do look after yourself gf

:lol: Omg Diva, I was laughing so hard reading that picture. It is completely spot on! And to boot, I do the exercises in my room which is not a very large space at all :lol:

I am giving aqua a miss tonight but will probably drag the exercise bike inside, put on some tunes and pump out at least half an hour in the warmth of my room. I'm feeling much better after a sugar free V (I know, they're BAD, you don't gotta tell me. I don't drink them often though and find they definitely do help when I'm feeling that 4:30itis :P )

Anyway, today was crazy busy, I almost started crying :lol: I'm up to date now though and looking forward to a relaxing night :mrgreen:

I can relate to that cartoon as well. It's rather good to know that your brain isn't the only one that has these kind of thoughts running through them.

One key thought that runs in my head however that is missing here...is the one about reaching the half way point. About one third of the way on my exercise bike (or run or whatever) I start to feel the strain. That is when I tell my mind to at least make it to the half way point. When I get there I then tell myself that I should at least go over the half way point. So I do a bit more and then I say to myself "why not try and do half of what is left to do". When I get there I finally say - "just a little bit more to the finish...might as well finish it off". I've been known to half the halves so much that the last five minutes are a maths nightmare! :lol:
