So my night out last night got majorly messy! After a landslide of cocktails and a greasy pizza, I woke up feeling awful and guilty as hell. My rock-solid mentality about this diet has taken a severe beating!! Eeeeek!
What's done is done. I can't dwell on it. I have to pick myself up and dust myself off and start over. And that's exactly what I did this morning.
And then along came TOM...thanks mother nature!
I'm so bloated and I want to cram my face with deep-fried oreos lol! You weren't gonna make this any easier for me were you?!
Getting back on the wagon is the hardest part but I'm there! I really don't wanna weigh in tomorrow but maybe a gain would do me better and teach me a lesson for next time!!
Anyways, off for now sparkies!
Over and out!

Quick blog to keep up my goal of blogging daily!
After a longgggg day at work I've had my arm twisted into going out tonight. I've knew the whole day I was going to cave eventually and unfortunately I can't stomach any alcohol except Malibu and Lemonade and I'm sure Malibu is full of sugar! But I haven't been out in agesss and I think I need to let loose so I'm officially taking the night off!
Based on my goals, I only need to drop 2lbs a week the next two weeks to meet them and I've been losing double that on average so I think I may just get away with it...will just have to work double as hard from tomorrow!
Anyways, keeping this short and sweet!
See y'all 2moz for my daily check in!!

Ola el Sparkies!
Today I am blogging early because I'm on a late shift at work. I've woken up with sore calves after a good gym workout yesterday so I'm going to give the cardio a rest today and instead to some intense housework with the music at full volume!
I have to admit, although I had a good workout yesterday, I still am in no way a fitness fanatic. I don't know why but I just can't seem to enjoy working out although I know it needs to be done. Anyway, I've been trying to find more fun ways of getting the workouts in and I really wanted to join Zumba. I kind of rely on my friend Zoe to work out with. She too is in the 'Obese Category' and although her motivation levels usually aren't as high as mine, I can usually twist her arm into doing some fitness with me. I asked her to come to Zumba and she said it's not really her kind of thing so I resigned myself to just not going. And then I thought...'NO!' I am going to Zumba. And so I called a few workmates and was surprised to find that they'd be happy to come. And there it is...all booked for Sunday evening, my first Zumba class. I am so psyched!
I called my mother who is also on a diet. And although she doesn't wanna join Zumba, she said we can take a drive up to the mountains (About 20 miles north) and get some great hill-walking and power-walking in so I'm pretty psyched for that too! Yee ha!
I need to get some new workout tracks. I said before, I had to get XL mens because I'm so dam tall, those are the only ones that fit my legs but I wore them to the gym yesterday and they were so baggy that I felt like a giant marshmallow! Eeeeek!
Diet is going awesome. As I said I'm trying to incorperate new foods all the time so I don't get bored and yesterday I tried Weight watchers pizza which was pretty awesome. The frozen ones are a bit MING but I bought this one from the fresh pizza section and it was spicy chicken flavour...yum! It had about 450 cal and was still quite big so I was totally full after eating it. Excellent, think I'll stock up on those!
I downloaded Flirty Girl Fitness after seeing it on a Sparkfriends page and it looked really good. I gave it a try today but if I'm honest, I felt like a bit of a loser doing it, I don't know why. Maybe when I'm a bit skinnier, I'll give it another go.
So anyway, moral of the story. Extend your networks! Don't be held back at the first hurdle!
That'll all for now folks! Chin up soldiers! You can do this!!

How are you all?!
Today was weigh in for week 2 and I've lost another 5lbs so I'm on top of the world! Woopa! That's 9lbs in two weeks...and to think I was fretting!
Started the week religiously following The 30 Day Shred but since then I've been back at work, etc, and other commitments have meant I haven't been able to squeeze it in. So, I think I'm going to use it as just one source of fitness instead of trying to do it daily. As long as I do something involving a bit of cardio at least every second day, I'm happy. Plus, I'm doing 120 crunches daily and an extra bit of strength each evening. Joining the gym tomorrow (Yes, I have finally got my lazy-ass friends into the spirit) so this is going to be great. However, the gym she wants to go to is in the area where my high school was and I REALLY don't want to bump into anyone I know, lol! Eeeeek! Got some new workout clothes today and was horrified to have to get XL tracks =( Had to get them from the men's section cuz I'm pretty tall and the ladies aren't long enough. But XL mens, seriously?!
Diet is still going strong. I've incorporated some low-fat hot chocolate cuz I have such a sweet tooth! And every few days, I'm trying to find different but healthy snacks so I don't get bored. I'm struggling a bit in the evenings, but I haven't caved. Just finding it difficult to NOT check out the fridge lol.
I have a works team night-out at the end of January which is perfect timing. They're planning on going to an Indian Buffet Restaurant, then some bars/casino so I figure that if I hit my first goal of getting out of the 'Obese Category' by then, that can be my treat. I was really freaking out about hitting it the other day but my weigh-in result today means that I only have to shift 4lbs in the next 2 weeks so I'm confident I can get there....I hope!
Anyways, that's dinner time for me my lovelies!
I hope your day is beautiful!
