The quest for less of me!

I was 66kg before smashing my knee to pieces in May 2010, and due to my reduced activity level for a about a year afterwards I "plumped" up to 75.1 kg, which is more than i'd like.

So I want to lose weight, slim down, tone up, firm up, lift up the fallen areas, get fit again, build up strength and flexibility in my and leg/knee, fit into those two pairs of jeans hanging in the wardrobe (along with the other clothes that seem to have shrunk), eat clean and healthy, and change the way I live.

Am I asking too much? . . . . nah, just have to get off my butt and get stuck into it!

I really love making sourdough bread by hand, but it's not exactly great for the waist line. But in moderation it is just fine. Ideally I'd be doing this instead of my real job, but I don't think it will quite pay my bills!

Hi Sparkfriend. I was off the site for a week or two and got back on a bit ago but haven't seen any updates from you. Wondering how you and your puppy are getting along?

Mid-Winter Xmas sounds like great fun! We always call a stupid present a jaup. Means 'Just Another Useless Present', lol, and yes, we always get some every year. Enjoy your special time.
