I'm genuinely shocked!
I checked my email today and there was an email from Sparkpeople... with the subject "You Are A Motivational Member !!!! Woww!!!!!
I never ever thought I'd be one of those... I have never set out to be to be honest. I like to come to Spark for the obvious reasons but to also read into the lives of other people, into their successes, their ups and downs, their struggles... I like to make friends, leave notes to let the person know i have read, or my opinion, or if i understand where they are. I was never setting out to speak to people to be a motivator!
Wow, i'm kind of honoured. I just want to say thank you so much to all the people who clicked that button on my Sparkpage saying i motivated them... I am really touched, and happy, and honoured that people have actually clicked that button because that's how they feel.
Wow! I can't stop wowing! I'm gonna be telling everybody hehe, i'm shocked!!
It's such a nice thing. =)

I just weighed myself. I'm trying not to get too excited. I have been great since last Monday, no takeaway, and SWEATY workouts. I've had a big loss. Lots more than i was hoping for.
Last Monday i weighed in at 161.75lbs. I just weighed in now at 155.25lbs.
I had to record it because i've never been this light before. I just thought to myself, JEEZ - my goal weight is 145? 10 whole pounds away... suddenly my new goal doesn't seem so far away... I know i can DO it.
So here's the scoop. I didn't know whether to record this BECAUSE of the following.
I attended a rrrrrrrreally long seminar after work tonight. I thought it would last an hour, so i'd be eating a bit later. Wrong. The seminar lasted a whopping 3 hours. I haven't ate for approx. 8 hours. Damnit!! There was food at the beginning of the seminar but i used my self control and refused any food, 1. because it wasn't of the healthiest choices and 2. i was eating with Hubby when i got home.
I am still eating with Hubby now i am home, and we are ordering takeout. *Sigh* - that's a way to backfire huh?
Well, i'll get over it. Tonight i am allowing, and i'm not gonna make any crumby excuses - i am eating junk tonight and that is by choice. I'm not gonna be down about it. I just lost 6lbs man, i'm giving myself a break.
The seminar also meant i didn't get to do my planned workout. So that's happening tomorrow. And then i'll add some more to the rest of the week to make up for tonight.
I am ON it!

Ahhh... gosh, over a year ago now i never thought i'd EVER wear designer clothes again. Ever. I'm not all shallow or "everything must be a brand name" or anything, but i like to have the odd thing or 2 that i like.
Today my dear Husband (still not used to that, haha) took me to a shop called Cult where he bought me a beautiful bright turqoise Superdry hoodie. Yay!! So so happy i finally have one, hah, it's never going to be off my back! It's a Large too, although they didn't have XL for me to try anyway haha... it's just so so nice to be able to look at the hoodies i love and actually get one and ACTUALLY wear one! Woohoo!
I was completely spoiled - he bought me two little t-shirts there too. I LOVE them. They are ladylike and fitted - which is a change from my usual baggy stuff. =P One fits perfect, the other is a good fit, it's just a little more fitted around the mid-rift, sooooo some work needs to be done for the belly, for me to feel comfortable and confident in it.
I have decided i might dress casually at Christmas - so it's a perfect target for me to work super hard on my belly so that i can feel great in my lovely Superdry t-shirt, hehe!!
I'm doing good right now. I just had a long and tough workout before tonight's roast dinner, and i have my weigh in tomorrow. So another NEW workout tomorrow - Davina fit. Excited to try that.

Ahhhh finally Friday - and my weekend off work!!! I worked last weekend so tomorrow is my first lie in for 12 days. Alright it's not that long but certainly feels it.
I am good right now, in a good place. I'm still not in the perfect place where things are easy, but i am pushing and pushing to work out and eat well. I'll get there.
I got home tonight after work and felt sooooooo tired. So what? I put my clothes on and went for it. Phew!! Feel better now!
No excuses allowed anymore.

Ack why don't i blog when i'm doing great?
I had a great week last week. This week the cold weather has set in, and i've been tired from work and seeing family and i let my calories go a few times.
I am doing it, i just need to keep up with my consistancy... it's a little harder this time around. The good news is i didn't put on weight for Monday's weigh in. The bad, i did think i was gonna lose because my workouts were tough and really tired me out.
Time to get the gloves back on.,
