I don't believe it!!!!!

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

OMG just as i'm getting stuck in and thinking of uping the amount of exercise I'm doing and my blasted back goes again. Why does this always happen to me. I hadn't even stepped foot in the gym.

I know i've had this dodgy back since my early 20's and that I've been told to accept it and get on, but when it prevents me doing what I want and want I need to do it makes me MAD!!!!!

Still am determined and so it will eventually happen. It's got to!!!

    Don't give up!! Are there chair exercises you can do without hurting your back? I am so happy you are determined not to let this get the best of you. emoticon

WOW what a weekend

Monday, September 26, 2011

emoticon confession time!!!! had a very naughty but nice weekend, and I'll be honest I didn't log a single thing as a result. emoticon
I felt that I had let myself down as it is the first time since joining that I didn't even log in, I felt a failure and said to myself here we go again.
BUT!! I get knocked down but I get up again. Today back on here, back loggin everything and even better, was told tonight that I am starting to show good results and to stick with whatever I was doing. So yippee and way to go Spark people, brownie points all round. emoticon emoticon xxx


it's not all doom and glooom

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

well on weigh in this morning I was really disappointed that I didn't loose much at all. I felt really dispondant at first. emoticon

Then emoticon I realised how much I've actually lost already in 3 weeks and you know what it really isn't all doom and gloom. I've actually achieved quite a lot considering I'm not able to really exercise properly yet.

So what I think I'll do is measure myself, then look back at the bigger picture and give myself a pat on the back.

I realised It's an easy trap to fall into when you expect the emoticon to fall every week and if they don't to feel like a failure, when actually it's pretty amazing what you have already achieved.

Once i'd looked back on the food diary I knew I'd done nothing wrong and that it was just one of those things.
Big lesson learnt.


back to work

Monday, September 12, 2011


finally back to work, it's even easier to stick to a good diet when at work, because I get back into a routine and can get back to the gym.

having had 5 weeks off it's going to be tough and I know I'm going to get so tired really quickly will need to find somewhere to slope off to for a little nap hehe.


Sunday again

Sunday, September 11, 2011

well another week gone and nearly weigh day. Thankfully back to work tomorrow, I just have to get through today. All his family at a gathering, normally it's bad enough, but at the moment I am just not strong enough emotionally or physically to cope with them for hours on end.

I know that sounds awful, but when one feels obliged to do anything it is never good. But we are literally summoned to these things and heaven help you if you fail to attend. You get to spend the day being judged, only to come up wanting.

It also is a diet danger zone, because they will literally insist that you eat everything on offer otherwise you are deemed rude and ungrateful. And it is never healthy despite me telling them on numerous occassions that I am on a diet. Not only low in fat but also due to candida must be wheat and yeast free. No matter how often I offer to take food it is turned down and they prepare me something totally unsuitable but vegi so one is obliged to eat it. grrrrrr.

It is very true you can choose your friends but not your family. emoticon xx
