Ok, I have strated my exercise regime off slowly today. I did a little bit of a fitness video, however I am not feeling well today so I couldn't get thru it all :(
For breakfast I had a small tin of baked beans on toast and for lunch I had 3 rice caks with ham. I also had some chocolate -as I couldnt help myself :P
I have to work tonight so I have made a nice sald for tea -that way I dont get the urge to sneak up to the shops and buy hot chips, like all my other work mates do!

Good on you Kate.. starting slowly with exercise is the way to go!

Just aim to get a little further on the video each time, and soon you'll be whizzing through it!

It's best to take it easy when you aren't feeling well - listen to your body!

Good luck with the salad tonight, enjoy it!

Well done Kate, a good start. As Mandie says build up the exercise slowly don't expect to be turning cartwheels just yet.

Work on the food little by little and you will make it. One step at a time... :D

Thanks guys. :D
I'm finding it hard to give up alcohol. When I get home from work, I like to have a beer or glass of wine most nights and I really want to stop that or cut it back to once or twice a week only.
And because I work nights, I feel weird not having dinner at home (as that's just what you do, walk in and eat dinner). So I am struggling with that. I do have dinner at work so it would be very bad if I came home at 10pm and had another dinner. Especially when I walk in and my husband says "Hey! I bought pizza, there's some left, want some?" Luckily I restrained myself last night (pat ont he back for me) but I had 3 glasses of wine instead (bad girl!).

I have wandered off the track. I used to be so disciplined and I could see my goal clearly ahead of me. Now I am all scattered and lost. I enjoy eating crap -until I feel terrible 10mins later :( wheraas before I would never touch it. I used to enjoy exercise and my fitness level was high. Now I feel obliged to go for a walk and I hate the thought of it (:() But once I am out there, I do enjoy it. It's just a daily struggle to get it done now, whereas before, I'd be up and out the door without a second thought.
Maybe you guys are right, maybe I need to start slowly. Maybe I should take a backstep and try to walk less -or do something different here at home (like my video) as I guess any little bit helps!

Feeling lost,
K.

Hi Kate, I agree that it would be very hard with the night shift thing. Maybe try have a cook up and put your meals into single serves (less pizza temptation that way!!) Or alternatively have some fruit and yoghurt as 10pm is a little late to be eating a full dinner. (I don't know about you, but I feel really stodgy if I eat too late). With the wine thing....now don't throw the keyboard at me as it sounds like you like your wine, ok LOL.... Have you tried spritzing your wine 1/2 wine, 1/2 soda water?? If you like it that way it is a good way to have your three glasses of wine still, but with far less calories!! (I am not a real wine drinker so I dont know if that is sacrilege or not!!, but I read it in a mag!) HOpe this is some help to you!!

Thanks for the advice Ally. I'll give the soda water spritzer a go and see how it is. It might actually be nice! Why not give it a go, hey? I have nothing to lose, wait, just 16kg! :wink:

-I have changed my name to Kylie btw guys, so call me that from now on! :)

Today I went for a long bike ride and it felt good. However, I just had a chocolate sundae from maccas (smacks own hand!) but I am taking it slowly. A little bit at a time, including cutting out bad habits, as I don't want to jump into the deep end with this weightloss as I might try to rebel.

I can't wait to be 16kg lighter! I can't wait to be 65kg! I haven't been that weight since I was like 14 y.o.
When I think of being 65kg, it excites me! It motivates me to really try! I think this is it. I think I have just had that spark lit inside me to get it done! YAY! Go ME!

*runs off to eat a block of choclate to celebrate*

lol.

Yep good on you kylie..

sometimes it can be REALLY overwhelming when we think of how much we have to change - exercise, drinking water, eating healthily, cutting down on alcohol... its SO much!

so it can be good to focus on ONE thing at a time...

like make exercise your focus for a week or two, make it a HABIT. then it is part of your life!

once you've mastered that, get to work on the other goals, one at a time..

before you know it, you're at goal weight, you're living a healthy lifestyle, and you haven't noticed a giant change because you did it so gradually!

And the best thing? You'll KEEP IT UP. Because it will then be a way of life!

Good luck!

Brilliant advice there Mandie.

Kylie try to keep that sense of excitement there if you can. I found that was one of the things that motivated me, the excitement of being smaller. On the day I managed to fit into a size 14 it was pretty exciting. How did I celebrate? Went to the gym and jogged for 20 mins then jumped on the cross trainer for 40 mins. I smiled and laughed the whole time as I knew this very action was what helped me get into the size 14. I felt like screaming out to everyone at the club "I just bought size 14 pants" LOL I was Big Kev excited!
