hello, I've just been reading up on your journey, and sounds like you are doing really well. congratulations!! I really like the idea of acknowledging the temptations you said no to ... it's interesting to me the slight change that brain makes when not that long ago I would have not really given it a second thought, but in the last week, I've said no to buying Twisties at the supermarket, one of my ultimate favourites they really tempt me; soft drink, although it was diet coke, I still chose not to, and my worst enemy, a cream bun. Twisties have always been my 'go to' convenient 'in the cupboard' snack that has all sorts of impact on my body, apart from adding weight of course. As I move closer to my first 10kg loss, I have been very conscious of the self sabotage lurking in the back of my mind, and telling myself that it would be ok to have a cream bun, but I had a serious talking to myself and don't know why its such a temptation after so long without one, and after losing nearly 10kg, there's some sort of self conspiracy going on that wants me to stay in my comfort zone :( BUT, the good news is I haven't gone there, and I am seriously going to try to keep my head in that space.

thanks for the inspiration to focus on a different positive, I'm going to incorporate that into my progress report too.
keep up the good work,
cheers

The dreaded dinner at friend's place! :shock: That will always undo you until you can figure strategies to minimalise the damage.
Key questions to ask your self...

    What things can I do before I get to my friend's house that will help me?
    What were some of the mind games I was playing?
    How could I have handled the food/beer better than I did?
    What were some of the positive things that I did right?
    What things can I do after the night that will help me?
    What did I learn about myself from the dinner?

Keep working at that healthy lifestyle...you will get there! :D
You are doing well!

new weight pb of 77.3kg on the Saturday just gone, hoping for 76-point-something this week

Friday was good until evening... then the whole weekend was a bit relaxed on the food front... which is OK - that's sort of my plan... I think I'm more likely to stick to 4-5 days of super healthy eating if I know I can eat normally on the weekend. As long as I lose *some* weight each week I'm fine with it.

So back into knuckling down on the food since yesterday:

Monday 31st March 2014

Breakfast:
- 1 weetbix & the crumbs at the bottom, which were probably another 1-2 bix worth
- 1 small banana
- cup of tea with milk, no sugar

Lunch:
- toasted ham/cheese/tomato sandwich

Dinner:
- Lite n Easy frozen meal - roast beef (eh)

Snacks:
- some strawberries

Exericse:
- ran 5km at 6:15/km pace
- 45mins group training - mostly strength stuff

Said no to:
- magnum icecream
- choc chip cookies
- some pasta after lunch

Very good Monday choices. Hopefully the weekend wasn't too bad for you. :D

You are right...the bottom line in all this is to keep your weight in the loss column. It is the "blow outs" that do most people in. A week where you gain a kilo doesn't seem the end of the world but if you think about it; it is worse than you think. Think of it this way...if you lost a kilo per week, three weeks in a row you would have lost three kilos. Now imagine losing one kilo in the first week, then gaining a kilo the second week and in the third week losing one kilo. For three weeks effort that is just one kilo. You have spent weeks retaking old ground that you have lost for no result. Better slow steady losses than boom or bust!

Oh...the Weetbix dilemma! The crumbs at the bottom of the Weetbix box...how many Weetbix do they equate to? :lol:

Good Tuesday. BBQ at friend's place again, did much better this time - no alcohol or bread. Probably a liiittle too much meat/potatoes, but not too bad. I'm tempted by the choc chip cookies again right now so I'm distracting myself by writing this, then I'm going for a run! And then it will be dinner time and I'll eat something healthy instead.

Tuesday 1/4/14

Breakfast:
- Lite n Easy fruit n bran cereal
- small banana
- cup of tea with milk, no sugar

Lunch:
- whole grain sandwich with ham, cheese, cucumber, mustard
- can of diet coke

Dinner (BBQ at friend's place)
- 2 sausages
- 1.5 chicken wings
- 2 roast spuds
- assorted salads

Exercise:
- 45mins group boxing class

Said no to
- wine/beer at BBQ
- more potato
- more meat
- magnum ice cream
- choc chip cookies
(Wish bf would hurry up and eat these last two so they're not there to tempt me!)

...But you are learning! You are navigating through your friend's BBQ a lot more smarter. Good work!

Your battle with the choc chip cookies also shows smart thinking. 8)

You are going well...keep it up! :D

- McChicken burger with cheese and tomato (no fries or coke)

Dinner:
- Lite n Easy frozen meal - Lasagne with veggies

MacDonalds? Who put the gun to your head to force you to go in there?!!! :shock:
Mac'ers has nothing much to offer us for lunch or dinner (except a very mean looking salad)...some brekkie choices aren't too harmful (but care needs to be taken)...it is best to stay well away. At least they provide a kilojoules count to let you know how hard they are hitting you! :lol:
Wasn't there another shop nearby with a healthier option?

Exercise hard to minimalise that burger and that 76 point something will be yours.
Generally though...good work :D

Not so good the last 2-3 weeks. I ate more in the few days leading up to the run, did no exercise the few days after, and then have been on holiday mode. Think I put back about half a kilo - haven't weighed after a long run and before breakfast yet so can't compare accurately. Best was 76.9 on 7/4/14. Not toooo bad all things considered but I'm back to it proper today.

But, on a positive note, I did the 15km run at 6:40/km, which is exactly what I was aiming for, so pretty pleased with that. Aiming for a half marathon end of July next. Would like to be down to 72 point something for that, - less that half a kilo per week... very doable, just gotta do it!

Re-group yourself and re-focus your efforts.
You have worked to darn hard to throw it away on undisciplined eating!

Good job on the jogging! 8)

Getting back up and trying again is what counts! Plenty of people fall on the way, but its those who give up at every stumble who don't get to the finish line.

SW: 74kgs - (2013) post baby!
CW: 68kgs (Updated 6 May 2014)
