February Non-Scale Victories

Tuesday, February 28, 2012

Right, so I lost just under 1kg in February. Not quite the 2-3 I was aiming for, but better than nothing, yes? OK, let us focus on the positives.

emoticon People noticing! Friends and family members (those who knew and didn't know that I was trying to lose weight) have been commenting about how good I am looking

emoticon My bra is getting lose. I am thinking part is natural stretching, part is weight lost around the underbust area. I have gone from barely being able to do up the outside hooks to being able to do it up on the inside hooks

emoticon I have been strength training for a whole month! I am seeing more definition in my body, and am looking slimmer

emoticon I like my body. I actually do. I look down in the shower now, instead of being ashamed of what I see I am proud of what I have achieved so far

emoticon My clothes are fitting better. I wore a pair of pants today that I haven't worn since January 15th and they nearly fell off. I was pulling them up all day!

emoticon My tummy fat roll is shrinking, so I'm not uncomfortable sitting down

emoticon I should measure, but I am lazy!

I still have a long way to come, but I have come a long way too!

Tomorrow, my goals for March!

February Results (a day early, sue me)

Monday, February 27, 2012

So, not as happy with my loss this month. I know what the problem is; I hit 5kg lost and then slacked off for 2 weeks. My fault. Next month my goal is to eat more fruits and veggies, since they went bye bye for a little while there.

On to the stats

Weight lost - 900g/2lb (This morning I weighed in at 82.4)

Lowest weight: 82.1

Exercise minutes - 860 minutes (I plan to squeeze in a 30 minute walk somewhere, anywhere, so that I can beat last month, which was 888)

Days exercised - 19-20/29

Average workout time - 45 minutes

So in short I am happy to be down 5kg total (I still say I am, even though this mornings weight in says 4.9kg), but not happy that I reached that goal in the first half of the month. So I just cruised for a couple of weeks and didn't lose anything.

My goal for next month is to be out of the 80's. That means a loss of 2.5kg in a month. I think I can do it, with a little more dedication and a little less chocolate. Thats not to say I won't be eating chocolate, because I will. I still believe that moderation is the key. It is when moderation gets overtaken by overindulging that we have a problem.

Wish me luck, and insert supportive comments below. Y'all know I need them right now.

P.S I plan to do a post of non-scale victories tonight, but for now I need to get my butt to work

    Slow isn't a bad thing, you are more likely to keep it off when it comes off slow. These are great results considering you just started a new career too! I am sure your NSV's will be wonderful too! Keep up the great work.

This is what the Board of Trustees and my principal gave me to welcome me into the school. How freakin' sweet is that! I love them!

Also, my principal commented to the rest of the staff about my ability to talk and connect with the children. I love that. Connecting with the children is so important, and I am pleased that I am succeeding in that area.

And I'm sick

Sunday, February 26, 2012

I woke up this morning with an awesome sore throat. I chugged some water, took a throat lozenge and went back to sleep...For 4 hours. Right, my body obviously wanted some rest! I now have a headache and my throat is still sore. I found some yummy ice blocks at the supermarket

They are only 61 calories each, and they have chunks of real strawberries in them. I have had 3 today, to soothe my throat. I say they count as medication, fruit and fluid. So there.

I also had one of these for my lunch today

Took me back to my childhood. I used to eat these as an after school snack all the time when I was a teenager, and when I saw them in the supermarket they screamed comfort food. The calories were reasonable so I got them.

I promise I got real food at the supermarket too. I got some manderins, some nashi pears and half a rock melon so I can make a big fruit salad for my mum and I. We split it and take it to work for our snacks.

With this sickness I am going to try to keep up my exercise if I feel up to it. There may be an extra rest day this week, but that is OK. I cut my run down from 5k to 3k today, and after the first km I felt a lot better. I knew I would feel better if I just got out there and started.

I will leave you with a pictuer of my sexy boyfriend playing the sax last night.

The lighting is all funky because of the stage lights. I thought it made the photo look cool :)
