One for all and none for one!

Sunday, August 15, 2010

When you move into a share house one question arises - do you do 'family' dinners or do you just do your own food. I'm a big fan of family dinners, mainly because its easier to cook for 3-4 people than just yourself and every one gets the chance to cook exactly the way they like

... unfortunately my flatmate is a kitchen nazi and doesn't like anyone else cooking and complains about how bad it is when we do... I should be grateful that dinner gets cooked for me every night but I find her very controlling of what we eat (she doesn't even like it when we go grocery shopping with her).

Last weekend she got very upset that I didn't eat Kangaroo meat OR lambs brains. I am not against people who do eat brains or skippy, but if you are going to buy these things..you do have to ask if people will eat them.

I'm going to take that opportunity to do what I've wanted for a while now - cook for myself and only myself - It's not going to be easy and there wont be a lot of freezer space so I can't cook and freeze much but i think i'll be a lot happier and hopefully a lot healthier.

The new motivation

Wednesday, November 04, 2009

Apparently, every time I try to get fit for 'me' I fall right off the wagon with excuses like 'i'm sick'; 'I'm tired' or 'I just want some relaxing time' - getting fit for me apparently motivates me to make excuses and that is not good.

I wondered though, if not for me who do I get fit for? Who else can I be accountable to?

As it turnes out some little ticker is the answer - this little computer graphic doesn't care that i'm sick, not bothered or having a 'fat' day - he just plods along and refuses to budge unless I do first. There is no one to argue or make deals with here - maybe this might work

So, Wagon, we meet again

Wednesday, October 28, 2009

..Oh alright - winters over and I've run out of excuses, My soccer comp is over (we made it to the Finals this year!!), it's no longer cold and the boyfriend has left the state for work.

Soccer was my main excuse - since i was playing or training twice a week it didn't really matter - but now thats over I have to move on and keep fit for next season

The cold just tends to zap the energy out of me - ive tried to beat this a few times, even with a tripple expresso then off to the gym...usually i end up just sitting on a machiene feeling so very sleepy instead of working out - much better rest and try to be ready for the next day.

The boyfriend going was a huge excuse - he was leaving the state because of work and before he left I wanted to spend as much time with him as possible - this ment alot of 'goodbye' dinners and a lot of calories - not only was I not going to the gym, I was eating bad as well. We are no longer together but luckely we managed to be as good as friends as we were before we started dating.

Now he is moved and settled, the weather is warming up and soccer is over there are no more excusess - back on the wagon I go.

  


But it's too cold mum!

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

Ugh - I know most people won't be able to relate to this but it's absolutely FREEZZZZZING in Sydney today!

First thing that goes straight out the window is the healthy food - somehow it always tends to be cold! Instead a nice hot serving of Chicken and Sweetcorn soup instead right?? Well I made a decent effort - since im new at this i got a small soup and a trusty prawn and advocado salad wrap...

Slowly makeing the right choices - think it will be easier when its warmer tho :P
