Such a cool photo........

And I am in it, chucking myself out of a tree!!

This is a snap Lynda took of me at our high ropes course...........which I cannot wait to do again.........

Marisa & Me........

Marisa is my friend. I met her through personal training.

She is such a funny, warm, considerate chick, I love her to bits.

She keeps me walking, I love chatting to her.

She remembers all the kids birthdays, and she is so perceptive. her generosity knows no bounds.

She is smart and funny and the only bad thing about her is she is rubbish at taking compliments.

Hence me posting this in here.

Even if I never lose another kilo in my life, I am so glad to have met her and have her as my friend.

We did the City to Bay 12km race last Sunday, after weeks of training together. I am so proud of her.

Personal Training Before and After Shots

Well, here we have it.

The before and after shots of my 20 week personal training..............


To be honest, I am not so sure I can see such a dramatic difference.

But I do know for sure that my fitness levels have increased beyond imagination, and that I have lost around 11 kilos in this time, as well as loads of cms.

And learned an awful lot about myself.

And met some brilliant women, and made some wonderful friends.

Dependable Chaos

We have lots of family coming to stay. Brothers, nephews, sisters in law.

I love it, but it is going to choas.

Enough said.

A mixed day.......

Do not talk to me about effing Pixie Bloody Photo or how revoltingly my children behaved.

Aside from that Friday morning drama, a good day.........all 100% perfect and entered into Calorie King. My breakfast eaten early and my 2l of water skulled.
I feel smug.
No scary carbs have passed my lips...........only good ones........
And I had the most divine chilli and garlic prawns for dinner..........

And I have the utter bliss and joy of new egyption cotton sheets to get into bed to soon.........

Life is good. Despite Pixie Photo and three unruly little tackers.

Just 2kg.......

Bit of a mini goal. But we have broken up from BetterBods, so I wanted to try and keep really focused for the next fortnight before we return for the first week of the new term.

So I am on a mission to lose 2kg in a fortnight.

Just 2kg.

Not much. But I also want to kick start this whole weight loss bizzo, as it has really slowed and it is pissing me off, LOL!
And if I am honest, I want to really shine and be a star at next terms BetterBods with great losses every single week, so this 2kg mini goal is the significant start to the whole next 6 months or so...........
And Miss Marisa.........more hills for us I think! xx

Goal setting.........

OK. Time to start evaluating some goal setting.

I realise that between high ropes and makeovers, I have been cruising a little.

I am learning so much about myself and my life and what I want, that my main aim of releasing weight and gaining fitness has kind of dropped to second place.

I am still losing weight consistently but it is more like 1.5kg a month, which is great, but I realise it will take me an awful long time to get to my goal if I continue to just chug along that slowly.

SO, with some renewed focus on the main issue of losing shedding weight, here is my new plan:

  • I have re-enrolled for another 20 week program of Better Bods with Lynda
  • I have re-enrolled for further group personal training on Wednesday mornings for cardio/weights
I need to go back to basics in order to lose weight more quickly. In order to achieve this I will:

  • Start using a more prescribed and stricter eating plan again: Breakfast of a Kate Morgan protein shake, fruit snack, lunch (low fat protein), fruit snack, dinner (low fat high protein). Revisist Calorie King
  • At least 2l of water a day
  • At least 6 exercise sessions a week.
  • Revisit the Think Slim (Mark Stevens has just sent me the original CD sessions as well as the new MP4 program)

If I do all of the above (and let's face it, none of them are hard, all are easy, I know I can do it) every day, then I will be back in a position of losing at least 0.7kg a week. Which would put me at goal just in the nick of time!

As I said to Lynda, I know I can do this. I have been doing it. But now I want to soar..........
