So, I was kinda beating myself up for being lazy and sleeping the weekend away. I mean, I should have been more productive, right? Well, the reason for my lazy weekend became very clear when I woke up at 3am, started vomiting and didn't stop until 7am. Yep. Luckily I had some recorded shows (Revenge...Addicting!) to keep me company for a couple of hours!
I haven't been able to keep anything down all morning. I was snacking on dry cherrios and some water, but that didn't work for long :(
I have been to the doctor and he thinks I have a bad case of food poisoning. I am on doctors orders to do nothing for 3 days; No work, no exercise, no 'diet'. All I am to do is stay in bed (or on the couch) and eat bland foods and drink juice. I have some fun pills to stop the vomiting and some antibiotics, just incase it is a gastro infection instead of food poisoning.

Today did not go as planned. It started great, with a good weigh in and plans to go to the gym.
Then I had a fight with my mum. The cliff notes version is: She said if she was rich she would hire a chef and a trainer and lose weight. I, very bluntly, told her that she doesn't have time for that. She is 5'3" and 105kg. That is nearly twice her ideal weight (60kg). In addition she smokes and drinks. This all adds up to a very unhealthy woman who is at risk of a heart attack, cancer and who knows what else. I told her this morning that it scares me how unhealthy she is, and that at the rate she is going, she might have another 10 years left. I also told her that I was scared that I would have to bury my mother before I turn 30. This all probably sounds very harsh, but after years of being subtle, it had to be said. I offered to help her lose weight, since all she can talk about is how she wishes she could lose weght like me. She flipped her lid, and since she has mental illness issues, she is good at flipping her lid. I left the house and called my Nana to go and calm her down. Nana, FYI, thinks I did the right thing by being blunt with mum. Once she calmed down she realised that I was only telling her that because I love her, and I was coming from a good place.
That threw my day. I had to be out of my house for a few hours and once I got back I was so tired I went back to bed for the rest of the day. To me, going back to bed and being in bed is lazy and I would have gotten up and gone to the gym. However I actually slept, so I figured I needed the rest and decided to take today off. No biggie! Bag is all packed for boxing tomorrow. BUT because I ran instead of doing weights on Friday, and I took today off, I haven't done weights in nearly a week. Gah.
Tomorrow will be better. I have packed my lunch and it is yummy! I have pretzels, cherrios, dumpings, 2 carrots, an orange and a pear. I have packed my gym bag and I am going to hit up the 5pm boxing class!

First, delish dinner.
I made some tofu as per this recipe - www.dailygarnish.com/2012/03/crispy-
It was yummy. There was only juuuuuust enough of the spice mix to cover my tofu, so I would make more next time.
The tofu was cut up and served over brown rice. To that I added bokchoy microwaved with some teriyaki sauce. THEN I added my secret weapon.
It comes in a bottle that looks like this. And it is amazing! It added so much flavour to my dinner. I had to put the bottle down and walk away, coz I was having it off the spoon.
Anyways, it was amazing, however I am aware you probably had to be there.
I've been doing some more shrinking. These jeans didn't button when I got them a few weeks ago. They were $15, I took a risk and got the only size left, which was a 14 (usually a 16)). While I don't believe in buying clothes to shrink into, I do believe in bargin shopping! Today I was feeling low about my less than stunning weigh in for the month and thought I would see if these jeans fit yet. I certainly couldn't feel any worse! AND THEY BUTTONED! Not only that, but I can SIT DOWN IN THEM!
Suck on that, scale!
There is still a little cake shelf (it is bigger than a muffin top, and it's where I keep my cake! Name that comedian!) but they fit! Hopefully they will look better in the coming weeks.
Edited to add this side by side. 5kg lost and 6.3kg lost

Weight lost Ė 600g Ė I canít believe I have worked so hard and only lost just over a pound! (This morning I weighed in at 81.1)
Total weight lost: 6.3kg
Lowest weight: 81.0
Exercise minutes - 1010 minutes Ė Goal met!!
Days exercised - 19-20/31
Average workout time - 52 minutes
5+ a day: Most days I met this goal. I forgot to track some days, but it looks like I got 3-5 servings almost everyday, and some days I got 6 servings! I like this goal and am going to continue it next month!
My weight goal was to break 80kg. Well, didnít do that! That is now my goal for next month.
I would be lying if I said I wasnít disappointed at my lack of weight loss. 600g is not much at all. My clothes are fitting better, which is nice, but we all like that pretty number on a scale! Also, if I see another board post about ONLY losing 1lb in a week I'ma punch someone. Try losing a pound a month, then talk to me about how unmotivating your results are. Seriously.
April goals tomorrow!
