Oh don't suggest biscuits! I had to get hubby to keep his bikkies in a padlocked jar because I just couldn't resist! If I have one I have 10! I think brushing teeth is a good idea, or chewing gum. It's just a matter of actually DOING it. At the moment the prospect of a cuppa stops me having the gum or brushing the teeth... don't know how to get round that.
It just occurred to me that because I haven't been on here in a while, I'd better update everyone on what I've been up to.
So I'm NEARLY finished my PhD (
I have also been getting into a lot of fun runs etc and this was the first year ever I've done anything like that officially. I've done:
2 mini triathlons (300m swim, 10km ride, 3km run - man I suck at swimming
Kingston fun run (5km),
City to wrest point 7km,
Mother's day classic 8km run,
Mountain running festival 5km,
I also did the Bicycle NSW Commuter Challenge (it was Aus wide), and Abseiled the Gordon Dam (world's highest commercial abseil!). I'm planning to do the point to pinnacle in November, and am in a team to do the Bruny Island Ultra Marathon in December (? I think?) and anything else that comes up that I hear of! I unfortunately missed the Launceston 10 due to injury and will miss the Burnie 10 by being out of the state.
I've also been doing bootcamp run by a uni friend, stopped because I figured out I do more exercise if I ride to/from uni rather than drive then do bootcamp, but I still do the Saturday boxing sessions which are a good counterpoint to the cycling. AND I walk my ginormous hound.
So as you can see, I've been pretty busy! Loving it though.
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!
