A loss of 0.6 kgs this week, pretty good with TOM visiting.
I cut back my exercise a bit, doing 4 x 20 min zumbas over the day with pilates in between and some walking.
I ate more salads- ugh - in the cold of winter it's torture --LOL.
Huh :) pulled a muscle on my hip on Friday vacuuming and I'm still limping around, old people!!!
I've got a physio appointment this week so Anita will help with some exercises to add to my regime for some more flexibilty.
But my spirits are up and I'm not even going to try to work out how I lost this week just be careful day by day, keeping to my plan.
DD and Mr Right were accepted for internship in Tasmania for next year, they are so delighted as it was their first choice. They start first week of January 2015.
Hoping you all had a great week and have high spirits going into this week. So many great blogs with great help to look at ourselves as winners this week. I'm calling this week affirmation week.
Have a wonderful week

August brings showers to Western Australia, so we have green grass and flowers, wildlife and low temps.
It also brings my darling Dad's birthday, he'll be 89 this week.
I have always had him on a 'daughters pedestal', and even more so in his older years. At 87 he was painting his house, a wooden home. he would tire easily so he did it little by little.
I'm glad I have a brick house as I don't have his stamina!!
He was always a quiet man as I grew up, never yelling or showing any disapproval and when he spoke I listened because I knew he was serious. I have only heard him raise his voice once in my whole life.
I would even go the the dump with him just to get him to myself for a while. Even after I was married he came by and helped with decorating (wall papering) and renovations ( we were pulling down an old shed).
He lives a quiet life now in a small town in New Zealand, not far from where we grew up and he taught us to swim, fish, barbeque and to work hard. Most weekends we would pile in the car with Mum and my two brothers and head for a nearby town to picnic, swim, take a ride on a small train, hike, go to the hot pools always something fun.
Coming home tired out, sunburnt and happy.
I believe his love for me helped me to accept there is a loving Father who cares for me.
So Happy Birthday Dad and many more to you!!!
I ate too much fruit this week and the extra sugar was apparent. A small gain of 0.2 kgs.
August will be a more careful month to try and get a good loss. July was a 1.2 kg loss.
