Finding it hard to be motivated...
Have been shocking the past few months with food and lack of exercise.

I have to remember my goals before I eat that bit of chocolate or drive instead of walk to the shops up the road.
I'm sick of being overweight!

Fastbreak over - success!

Friday, July 18, 2008

Just finished fastbreak, and I have lost 1.2kg (2.6lbs).. its not much, but its something! So wooooohooooO!
And I hardly feel like I've changed anything, except making slightly healthier choices.
I am so glad it is working.. now I just gotta keep on it!

    Congratulations! You are on your way. I know you wish it could have been more, but think about it. If you continue to lose like this, you will reach your goal, and that is the important thing. AND, I always tell myself when things are going slower than I would like, that "It isn't the destination, but the journey." And a slower journey give me more time to learn the lessons I need to learn. Keep up the good work.

Doing ok :)

Thursday, July 17, 2008

Everything is going ok!
I've done my exercise quota (and more) for the week, been eating within my limits, and drinking 8 glasses of water every day.. its not as hard as I thought it would be!
Haven't bought scales yet, i'm onto that tomorrow... Kinda necessary if I'm going to measure progress!
So yeah feeling pretty good, battling with wanting to eat, but it seems easier now I know I need to log it.. and I am NOT going over that limit!


First Blog.. whats going on with me so far!

Thursday, July 10, 2008

Hey! Took me long enough to figure out how to Blog haha...

I have been a member of SparkPeople.com for.. 4 days now? And have been logging my food and exercise for 3 days.

I'm on holidays at the moment visiting my family, and its soooo cold here! (I usually live in the tropics!) Finding it hard to exercise, as I'm usually an outdoor person. Also extremely strapped for cash (need a new job.. amongst other things!) so can't join a gym or buy any kind of equiptment.. Once I get home next week I've got my usual netball but until then? Finding it hard. I've been "skipping" without a rope haha.. pretty funny if anyone saw me!

As for food, I haven't been doing toooo badly.. went over my calories and fat on my first day as I had McDonalds for breakfast.. haha definitely brought it home that thats not something I can afford to do! (Hash browns are the devil!!!! But ohhh so tasty.. haha) But since then been ok. I seem to be low on protein, so I've been drinking some low fat milk.. now just on my minimum.

Overall I'm finding this really exciting! Sparkpeople is very convenient and easy to use, the people on here are friendly and supportive, and its freeeeee!!! Awesome!

Please please please let this work!!! emoticon emoticon
hehe. ciao! xx

p.s. totally not my photo.. but oh so cute! It is just soooo cold! (not really but it feels it.. hehe)

  Welcome! You can do it! Where are you staying that is so cold? Another good exercise to do on holiday is walking/running (depending on fitness level) and you also get to explore the new area and see things that would usually be completely overlooked from the car emoticon
Its cold here in NZ, not snowing cold where I am but more than cold enough! When I finish Uni i'll be relocating to QLD for the climate, amongst other things (Me and half of NZ have you noticed? haha)
