Loosing weight is fun!

Saturday, April 23, 2011

It is when the scale co-operates, anyway! I am back to weighing myelf daily, or at least most days. I like to know exactly where I am at, and waiting all week is annoying for me.

So I stepped on the scale this morning and found another kilo was gone. That brings me to 1.4kg in 8 days. I did have an upwards spike a couple of days ago, which I didn't record or pay attention to because I was hoping something like this would happen!

I am still sick, but feeling much better. I am going to take today as another rest day and start exercising again tomorrow. Today I am going to spend time with my boyfriend and attempt to complete an assignment. Wish me luck!!

    Yay, good for you! DO remember, though, that a person's weight can vary up and down by quite a bit even in the course of a day, due to water retention, digestion, the female cycle, etcetera...so if you do have some ups amidst the encouraging down, don't get too worried! Just sayin'! emoticon

    I shouldn't read for pleasure during the semester either. It really does distract from so much... I'd much rather read than work out or do homework. Also, hugs and chocolate lava cake are tops.

    If I wrote these things, I'd choose such totally different questions than these. My 50 Things list would be like...
* What is something almost no one in the world likes that you admit to liking?
* Last thing you shoplifted?
* Favorite bodily fluid?
* Strangest part of the anatomy on which you've grown a rogue hair?
* What is your spirit vegetable?
* If you had to die in a natural disaster, what would it be?
* You have to make a meal that contains a large amount of insects. What do you make, and what bugs do you use?

See, isn't that more stimulating? emoticon

Shall we high five?

Saturday, April 23, 2011

At work today we had a big sale. On days when we have a big sale we have to get to work early for a shared breakfast and coffee. The breakfast is always terrible; pies, sausage rolls, muffins, donuts. I would go on but I think you all get the idea. I had a coffee (soy mocha, yum yum) but did not have any of the breakfast. My workmates tried to peer pressure me into having some so I used the excuse that I have already had breakfast. When that didn't work they tried another tactic. I just said "I am enjoying eating a healthy diet and am doing well, so I will just have my coffee, thank you". They stopped. Thank goodness! I did end up snacking on a couple of small, solid chocolate eggs during the day because my lunch was delayed and I needed a sugar kick. I felt I had the freedom to do this because I had a healthy breakfast, so I don't feel bad about it.

I was able to go home around 3pm. I was actually dying. My workmates were discusted that I had to come in, but when I mentioned to my boss on Thursday that I wasn't well and enquired about having today off he said something along the lines of...well...no. No more. Next time I am sick I WILL be having the day off. I got home, watched some TV, sparked and let my mama take care of me. Hot lemon drinks and she is making my dinner. When you are sick you just want your mama!

Hot tea, water and a homoeopathic cold remedy. Lets hope I'm better tomorrow!!!!

Hope you're all better soon!

Eat chinese food = lose weight?

Friday, April 22, 2011

Hmmmm so last night I indulged a bit and had chinese food for dinner. It was salty and delicious. Just for interests sake I weighed myself this morning. I had lost weight, 300g to be exact! Ummm? Ok! I'll take it. No asking questions, just go with it!

In other news I have to go to work today. Which sucks because I am really sick. I was told there was no way I could call in sick today so I have to go in. BUT I will be telling my boss to send me home asap because I am sick and gross and no one wants to buy jewellery off someone who has a fountain on their face.

Argh, until next time!

    I allow myself a splurge day once a week. It is usually on the weekend and I always seem to drop a pound or 2 by Tuesday. I think our bodies just get shocked when we switch things up...lol

  Sorry you don't feel well. I also like Chinese food, I don't have it very often just for that same reason, all that salt. You are not bad though. Have a great Easter and feel better soon. emoticon emoticon

I'm here, I'm sick

Thursday, April 21, 2011



Another motivating holiday picture.

emoticon I am pleased to annouce that another 100g has left the building, bringing me to 1.8kg/3.9lb lost in around 3 weeks. Slow and steady folks. In a perfect world I would keep up this rate of loss, but we all know its not a perfect world. I am aiming to be at my goal weight by my birthday, which is in 8 months time, so I think I have a realistic timeframe. It is around 2-3kg a month.

emoticon Today is a rest day, partly because everything is closed and it is horrible outside and partly because I'm still sick. Sneezy, dozy, fuzzy and the other dwarf men have taken up residence in my head. I am on my couch with a bottle of water, a blanket and my mama. And my languages assignment. Joy. If there is no rest for the wicked then I must be awful!

emoticon I have eaten bacon twice today. Yes, twice.

emoticon Russell has a gig tonight. And as much as I looooove going along to support him I think I will have to pass tonight. I don't want to be there sniffing in the corner. He isn't feeling well either, poor love.
