Yay, sounds great Rach! Those wraps sound yummy! That's a good way to keep them interesting too, changing the meats around!

You'll be into those Size 12's before you know it!!!

I woke up at 5.30am this morning and did a H.I.I.T workout on the treadmill! I am so proud of me, usually i sleep in as much as possible. But today starts my new daily workplan.

5.30am - wake up and do HIIT on Treadmill for 20mins

7:00am - leave for work

10:00am - morning tea

12.00pm - lunch

3:00pm - afternoon tea

6:00pm - workout (crunches, pushups, tricep dips, lunges, squats, weights etc)

7:00pm (or earlier) - dinner

(work on singing sometime)

9.30pm-10.30pm - go to bed (somewhere in that time)

I am trying to at least drink 1.25L water :) which i am pretty much managing. I just gotta remember to drink it, no matter how busy I am.

Having a bad day at work. I hope it ends soon or gets better. Can't wait to go home.

On a more positive note, I am looking thinner in reflections now. I don't cringe as much anymore, and sometimes I don't believe its actually me. As i said in an earlier post, my butt has decreased in size and it still freaks me out when i go to feel it and its littler ha ha ha.

I am trying to be positive :)

oh, hubby started smoking again....only 1-2 a day 3 if its really stressful. He doesn't take any to work (thank God). He had been on the nicotine gum for 2yrs and it didnt even work. He had tried the patches, the losenges as well. He is addicted to nicotine. Even when he had his first smoke in 2yrs after the gum, he didn't even have a prob handling it. That is not meant to happen. Anyways, we chatted about it and i voiced my oppinion, and we met half way. I can't actually make him stop smoking, but i can at least check up on him everyday. If he goes over 2-3 a day we are gunna get him off it. But yeah after 1month we are going to reasses the situation and maybe get help for him to quit. He was born to a smoker, and was around smokers all the time, he started smoking in grade 6 and he was a heavy smoker, so yeah.

There is 1 positive in this though. He is now the same Ryan that i fell in love with. Lately before smoking agian, he had become angry and frustrated and not very touchy and impatient. When i met him he was the opposite. I am glad to not have my husband going mental with swearing and anger if he spills a drink or hits the wrong key on the computer...but i still dont like the smoking, i am adjusting, and its weird but him stopping the gum and smoking again has made his asthma better...

Thats my update all :)

Certainly sounds like a bad week - hope it gets better soon!

Yuck.. KFC! Actually, I think it's a good fast food because I always feel AWFUL after eating it - it's so greasy and it just sits in your stomach and blergh... so it's a great reminder NOT to do it again... and think how much better you would have felt after a delicious subway!

Don't worry, things will improve!

With the headaches - maybe it's not the water, maybe you're not eating enough or not eating enough of the right things? Or perhaps tension/stress.. Headaches are horrible, I hope they leave you alone!

Losing weight is tough... AND losing weight when feeling blah is tougher - but you just have to push through, my friend...

I mean - what is the alternative?!?! You've come so far already!

It's about everything in moderation. I think you are doing a great job! Slow and steady wins the race.

Keep smiling,
Lauren.

Hang in there Rach. Don't give up. Hope you're feeling better soon.

No one was 'born to be a smoker'. I used to be a smoker (started when I was in Year 7) and I know how hard it is to quit as I've done it several times... and failed. I've been smoke free for almost 6 years now, thank god. But please don't try to rationalise your husband's smoking or his behaviour -- even one cigarette is harming him. He probably needs help or intervention from a GP or something to help him get over the nictoine addiction.

My husband smokes too and I hate it. And I know he is the only one who can make the decision to quit -- you have to do it for you, nobody else (like losing weight!). He knows how much I hate it and he always tries to rationalise it - that he doesn't smoke much, that he is otherwise healthy etc etc etc :roll:
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Ryan saw his doc the other day. The doc said he should be proud of his progress. I mean from smoking 1 pack over 1-2days to now smoking 1-2 cigarettes in 1 day.

The doc said he should quit cos of his asthma (even though it doesnt affect him) but that he shouldn't feel bad cos he still smokes, he is doing very well.

We are gunna see how he is on 1st january. he doesnt like smoking but at the moment *he* needs to. I am not worried, at least its not 1 pack a day. And he will quit :) People just dont understand, i mean i dont but i never smoked.

Eurgh, I don't think I could date a smoker :( The last guy I was seeing was one and it made me realise just how gross it is and how much it SMELLS!!!

Sorry to hear you're having a rough time of it all :(

I totally agree with Mandie, fast food just makes me feel horrible now. I remember once a couple of years ago I had a Happy Meal at Maccas and it sat in my stomach and made me feel horrid all night!!! Has it put you off having KFC again??

My ex was a smoker, I used to kick him out of my room to smoke (I was in Ireland, my housemates smoked in the house... but my bedroom was a smoke free zone!) even at 2am or 6am or whatever and it was freezing cold, he had to go out into the hallway!

And I made him chew gum and spray deoderant before I would go near him...
