I ate well all day Saturday and jumped around lots in work.
Got home Saturday evening and lay on the couch with my book. I then had a takeaway. A donner kebab and some chips and cheese. I gave in. The positive thing is i stayed in my calorie range still so hope this doesn't do too much damage.
Today is Sunday and i had a small victory. My hubby had KFC for his dinner. I went with him and everything, and sat next to him while he ate it, knowing i had my chicken and a wholemeal sub to come back to work to.
I don't feel so great right now. It's my tiredness... it is. So what i need to do have my workout when i get home later - because i know deep down it helps with my energy levels. I had my little victory of not going further after last nights kebab, i said no to KFC today. That's gotta be worth something? Ack, i can't help thinking "You still ate that stupid kebab, AND fries! Silly!!" ...what a way frickin go backwards.
NO. I'm ok. I can carry on now. Truth is i don't feel like working out tonight, but i so don't want to back out because... another back out makes it even easier/more likely to back out on Monday.. then Tuesday... then....etc. Ugh. So i have to, tonight. Stupid thing is, i know once i'm 5 mins into my warm up, i'll be enjoying myself and be rearing to go!
Gotta keep pushing forward.

I'm back in the zone again, motivation is creeping up on me.
I just about managed my workouts last week, but i did eat well, no more pigging out.
I am back in the zone. I noticed while shopping today, food shopping. I was by the check out and i looked over the sweets and chocolates, just interested in seeing what was there. Notice that? I was only looking to see what was there. This is different from looking at what i WANT and talking myself into buying something. I could look over them all happily and not have the urge to buy anything. I like it when I'm in this zone, things are easier !
I had a sneaky weigh in yesterday, just because i didn't know how i was feeling. I know, you shouldn't really weigh in to determined your mood... but what the heck. I weighed in and i was DOWN. *Smiles* I relaxed for the night, and started my new week.
My official weigh in tonight gave me the same results as yesterday, so i'm really really pleased. An official 3 and a half pounds loss... i can't believe it's a big one!!
Another little victory today - The husband had pizza for tea and left 2 whole slices. I had my workout and shower and they were in the kitchen. Guess what i did? Took a bite of a slice and then tipped them in the bin. I ain't ruining my workout for pizza that isn't even my favourite flavour!!!
Let's keep Sparkin' guys.. we know how good it feels.

I'm still doing pretty good. I don't know about a loss for next Monday's weigh in though. Maintaining would be good.
I feel a little... low at the moment. Just on motivation. I'm not making excuses for myself, I just don't know where this comes from? Everybody feels it... it creeps up on us all. One minute, one week, we're flying through the week, super fit, feeling amazing and doing more than we have planned, pushing ourselves harder and receiving the results we hope for. Then, BAM. The week after... Things become a pain. That naughty food that I was poking fun at in my cupboard last week and laughing at because i didn't want it in a million years, even forgot it was there - This week, i KNOW it's there, i can hear it and smell it. I want it so bad. It gets harder to decline food people offer which you know isn't good for you. And exercise, it's that little bit harder to get changed into workout clothes and get your funk on.
I don't think it's because it's winter and it's cold either - not for me anyway. I workout all winter long last year without too much trouble to myself.
I'm not super low on motivation, I'm just... feeling that lack of... force starting to go down. I now have to counteract that and work harder.
I just had a thought. I don't have the huge goal of getting married anymore. I have a New Years Challenge to be working towards... but it's just not as huge a deal. I was going out with family this past weekend, and i whooped my own ass working out last week, so that i'd feel great going out and seeing people. I need that goal.
I have my Honeymoon to work for, coming up in March 2011. I am going to work hard for this. I am working hard for this. Just, deep down in the back of my mind, i KNOW that i have plenty of time, to lose the 10lbs i've set for my ultimate goal. So subconciously, i'm being lazy at the moment, because i know i can. And partly because i know that it's harder to maintain than it is for me to be in the frame of mind to lose weight, in my head i would rather maintain for a while and THEN begin a new weightloss goal.
I'm not doing that though, I'm on track now to carry on pushing, getting fitter and healthier and dropping those pounds. I gotta get this belly in shape!! A-ha! I just remembered my fitted t-shirt i want to wear Christmas Day - how did i forget that?! I need to work hard on the belly so that my t-shirt fits nice!
Well duh i almost forgot the reason i'm writing a blog!! My eating has been good since my allowed overload the weekend, and dinner last night was good and well portions, BUT, afterwards i just got soooo hungry!! Not real hungry, just dying for a snack hungry, grrr!! So i had a chicken toastie thing worth 169 calories. Which wasn't too bad. I also gave in to a packet of crisps too, at 110 calories. Grr! I guess it could have been A LOT worse but it took me over my calorie target and over my carbs... BOOOOO! I am over it now, it's just annoying, i will now just stick to what i've planned to eat, it's a new day and i just snacked on some fruits. *Another Edit* AND it wouldn't have been so bad if i'd have worked out! But i didn't, because i was cold and sore from Tuesday night. So there is definitely some hard working out planned for tonight, and NO BACKING OUT.
So there we have it, i'm back and forth with myself and now i have my goal, my Christmas goal that will tie in with my New Years goal.
I do get silly, sometimes. I'm right about the up-and-down motivation thing though!

I had my new Monday weigh in and i gained a pound. I'm really happy with this - yeah i know it's a gain BUT, i lost over 6 pounds last week! Sooo to still be so close to my huge loss, i'm really pleased and ready to keep moving and working.
I over ate and drank Saturday night for my Mum & Dad's Silver Wedding Anniversary and then Sunday i had hangover food... but it's all good because this is my lifestyle, i had a day and a half off and now i am back to being sensible.
I didn't work out when i got home tonight - i am soooo tired right now - i should actually be in bed now but i wanted to Spark around for a little while, i'll go to bed with my book shortly. I did have an abs workout though, because that's what my main focus is now. I didn't realise how hard i actually find crunches and stuff... i read about people doing 200 a day and i can barely knock out 30!
Another happy note, since it's my second week being under 159lbs, that means i have lost over 80lbs! Woohoo! I did have to make sure it was atleast over a week though, just to be sure hah.
I need some sleep !
