Hi Carla,
good idea on the scenic walks. I went on a rather large walk today, along one of the bush roads out of town. There is still a lot of traffic out here and twice as many wild dog's...I did not enjoy it at all. I might go online and check out the bushwalking options for my area. Thanks for the idea :wink:

I've had a big week and monstorous day with all this exercise I am trying. Tonight I am busting with 3 large bottles of beer & a pizza cooked greek style by one of the local guys.

I hope you have a good weekend

LOL Carla you will get into a routine with the hula hoop, hopefully. I bought a skipping rope this week and the thing counts how many 'skips' you do as it goes around. Haven't used it yet, must give it a try this weekend.

I too have had that issue with the scales on different surfaces and like Ally always have it in the same place.

People people people. If you can....GET YOURSELVES A HOOP!

I still cant do it properly. 3 loops is all I can manage with each attempt BUT within *5* minutes, my heart really gets pumping, and Ive already built up a sweat!

It is fantastic and easy aerobic exercise as well as a tummy-trimmer..and probably works on other areas of the body like hips, thighs and upper torso...

I shall bravely persist! :lol:

I've been trying not to do that for fear of hurting my back. As soon I know it's losing its rev, I just grab it and start again. Although, if I bent my knees *everytime* I picked it up off the floor...that could be even more physical work put in to the routine, safely.

I did two things tonight.

I listed every single thing that went in to my mouth today along with caloric value for all. Came to 1700 (rounded off to nearest 100)

Then I calculated my BMR...factoring in lifestyle calculation (ie..how sedentry to how active you are). My BMR is 2000 a day (rounded off to nearest 100)

I went over my food list. Around 100 cals could have been avoided in having hot drinks with milk and sugar. But 400 cals went in to having too much bread (if you go by sticking to two slices of wholegrain a day).

I bought sweetners and skim today and measured what 50 mls of skim looks like in a cup...cos before I was having like 50mls of fullcream milk. Anyway, one cuppa with sweetner and 50mls of skim = just under 20 cals a cup...which is much better.

Must also learn to stick to 2 slices of bread a day.

And cheese is also another terrible love of mine. I nrealy fainted when I read that only 25 grams of cheese equals *100* calories. God God! No wonder Im so over weight!

So cheese is rationed to 50 grams a day! ( Cant give it up...have too much of a thing for a grilled cheese and tomato on toast. Figure if I stick to one a day, Ill be o k)

Still using those cuppa soups. Now adding small tin of tuna to a cuppa soup, for lunch, which with a slice of bread and a piece of fruit, is an ok lunch!

damn cheese gets me as well. biscuits & cheese, grilled cheese and tomato on toast (or an english muffin) are both faves of mine. i try and sneak one little slice in a day though.

i love the hoop idea! how's it going? i bought a skipping rope ages ago and haven't used it yet. too much of a chicken! :oops:

Well you can see my mouth has been busy since I was last here nearly a month ago!

See what happens when I turn my back on this place for a minute?


I think some of my gain is ttotm stuff, though. Certainly hope so!

Anyway, back on the circuit now. Big long walk today, about 2.5 hours. Healthy lunch and breakfast. Small amount roast lamb tonight and veg. Maybe a cuppa soup late.

Am also off the cigarettes.

I cant ignore my weight problem for long before I come back now days because where I once thought size 14 was too big for me, Im now between 18 to 22 depending on the make of the outfit. !4 would be a dream!!!!

And can not stand seeing myself.
