So today was a bit of a blow out..
1slice of pizza, bowl of ice cream, 1 choc muffin, a vegemite sandwich.. and I havent cooked dinner yet.. :oops: but I did 5kms on the bike coz it rained and I did some walking through town this morning and this arvo. Really need to turn it around so I exercise more than what I eat. Would love to go for a jog but it rained nd the dirt road is muddy... I dont want to get the neighbours something to laugh about. :lol:
So looks like a small dinner and bike in the morning (or a jog if the road is dry enough).

I wish I had my telly so I could plug my Wii into it.. I would really like to know if my weight is going up or down.. :? Sometimes I stand and feel a bit of a loss, but other times I feel like I have made no improvement. :(
I had Toast and Scrambled eggs for breakie, Silverside sandwich for lunch, a fruit in jelly cup for a snack, and for dinner I cooked up this chicken (with pretty much all the vege's I could find in the fridge-Broccoli, cauliflower, pumpkin, carrot, mushroom and some potato (which isn't found in the fridge but I think everyone gets my drift)) cooked with herbs and a tin of diced tomato served with rice. It was very filling. I stuck it in a bowl for a change.. Can't fit much in a bowl compared to a plate.
I went for a jog this morning and this afternoon, walked around town, and tried to mow some of the lawn before the mower died :( It seriously has this problem with not wanting to work properly, so it's off to the mower doctor in the morning! lol
I feel like I should be doing more so this weight will come off. I keep seeing myself as a thin person, but unfortunately its trapped under this fat.. :lol: I am hoping watching Biggest Loser in the near future will be of some motivation..

Hope everyone's had a lovely christmas.. Yesterday wasn't too bad food wise :) Ate enough to keep me full, and didnt go overboard I don't think. been trying to get on the bike or do push up's and planks as well as running up and down stairs.. Today we had visitors doing the friends and family christmas travel around. they asked if I had lost some weight?? Because its starting to become visible.. :o That was a big encouragement, pick me up compliment I haven't heard in donkeys years.. lol. :lol: So maybe, just maybe I could win against this fat Im carrying around.. :)

Hi Niksta

Of course you will win, That extra weight has a 'fat chance' of winning - stay strong!

I was pretty pleased with myself yesterday - went to parents place to celebrate mum's birthday. Managed to stick to the salad, avoided all the patries (I had two 'vol au vents' - I ate the tuna contents with a spoon and left the casings untouched. Said they could reuse the casing if they wanted, but they said they'd feed it to the birds :lol: ) I had one corn chip to dunk in the salsa. I probably overdid the Bulgarian fetta cheese a bit, but still managed to lose 300g so I am happy enough.

Wooohooo thats really good Bren.. I haven't gotten around to weigh myself yet.. Need to hook my Wii up to the other telly to use the scales on them..I was good xmas day.. but today, oh boy.. I have over done it.. We got given caramel's, shortbreads, and fudge etc.. and I have been grabbing some as I go past, or a couple lollies... YIKES!!! :shock: Need to get out of holiday mode and pump those peddles on the bike again i think (I have been doing some over xmas). I need to be good.. Apparently we are having Pies for dinner.. so might grab some salad with it.. and tomorrow is a new day, and will stop scoffing down all the sugary foods..Would really like to get to my goal for the challenge and my end goal..

Hey Niksta

If you have an Aldi's close by they have a set of scales with all sorts of fancy fat% and other readings as well as the weight of course. I think it was about $17 - it's in their catalogue

In Christmas past there were always heaps of leftovers and I used to hog into them until they disappeared about new years day. It was a good week of pigging out. But now I live alone I didn't get anything special in. One of my brother's got me a block of Gorgonzola for my birthday - I will try to make that last! Cheese is my downfall!

Yeh we have an Aldi about 10mins away, but I hardly go in there.. Probably the reason I didn't know they have Scales on special lol.. I might have to grab a set.. I dont want anything flash.. just a set that display weight in kilograms would be great haha.
I have tried not to feel like all the food 'has' to be eaten after christmas.. There is still some food left-but the dogs will get it.. But its funny how I bought chocolate for the rest of the family, and I didn't recieve any..lol.. not complaining though-its a good thing..
Starting to get a little freaked out coz there are no jobs going in my area atm, and I would have liked to have one so I could save and join a gym around March.. but I wont be able to afford gym membership with my university (for example) aswell as rent and books etc.. ugh it really sucks! but nothing I can really do about it.. They say money can't buy you happiness-but to a degree it can lol..

The scales are on sale from Thursday.

I'm looking for work too - I've applied for a job which I am hopeful for, waiting to hear about interview. It is in Melbourne so I would have to move in a hurry - 2 hour commute is out of the question. I won't move to Melbourne till I have a job - couldn't afford it.

Sweet.. Ill have to check them out.. I was thinking this morning maybe just using a tape measure for a little while.. See if its more useful than weighing myself.
Hope u get the job in Melbourne too.. Sounds like a bit of an adventure with moving if u get the job.. I have to just keep an eye out for work and submit a few resume's I think.. So nerve racking

So its the new year, and I sat down and wrote out my New year's resolutions for 2011.. The first one is to get down to my goal of 68kgs by July.. (Mini goal of about 75kg by March) :D The last few days I have been walking, joggin, whippa snipping, etc.. Sweating it out! lol I feel like I have lost a little bit of weight which is a good thing, isn't it??

So I've hit a little bit of a bump spot.. I just feel like I'm doing something wrong. I have been cutting down on my portions (like the other night we had hamburgers, and usually I would have two, but I made one up with lots of lettuce, tomato, bettroot, cheese etc and I only had one coz I was so full). I haven't been able to go for a jog due to this darn rain and flood water. So exercise is pretty much down to a minimum. Dad wont let me plug up the Wii to the upstairs telly. Grr :( Everytime I look down, I still see my fat rolls. It's disgusting. I want to lose this weight but I dont know what Im doing wrong. I should be doing more exercise but I can't go for a walk or a jog which I enjoy..

Wow! I haven't been on here for a while due to the floods we had in the area and cleaning up etc. I dont know if I have lost any weight, I still havent gotten myself a set of scales yet :( But I doubt if I have lost any which really sucks.

I have been trying to go for walks or jogs, but my sleeping pattern is screwed and the parents usually get me to do something in the arvo..
I'm looking forward to joining the gym once I get one of my friends to join with me. $136 for a semester at the uni gym doesn't sound too bad.
Been drinking lots more water with a little bit of soft drink, and my portions are smaller, but I think I am still eating the wrong foods, or maybe not exercising correctly :cry: I would have liked to be at say 80kg atm, and I doubt that I am.. Will have to see what happens between now and July.

Ok folks, Im back... Been away for a while now with moving house and uni and all that sort of nonsense! but I have joined the gym :) and have done a few sessions already and only been a member for a week or so. and been eating more portioned meals and eat healthy, but there has been the odd occassion that I drop into McDonalds to grab something quickly :O oppss.or the subway I just had for lunch (it was only a 6inch lol). make sure that doesnt become a habit, thats for sure.

But anyways, Im nearly into the 70's again!! Im stoked, and really working hard to it..Would love the scales to say 69 one day in the coming future. :D
