How do i start?
I went AWOL for the weekend. Kind of. I've logged in and tracked but not much else. I had a long hard working weekend... so i've just needed to rest at night... running short on sleep and to be fair i've had some real physical labour days... i say hard work at work, but it really did include a lot of fun. I work for my Dad see, and my Dad's hobby is military vehicles. Whilst i'm working he might pull me off one job to help him out with his stuff. My weekend consisted of playing around with his new tank, lifting heavy stuff onto it, learning to drive it, and then on the Sunday, putting it up on it's trailer for travelling. It's the first time we ever attempted to put it on the trailer, and it's not such a simple task. It took a whole day and it really was a workout lifting all the heavy stabilising chains up high and everything. I was gonna maybe post some pics but i only really use this blog for my lifestyle... so i dunno, lol.
The eating has been pretty good, apart from last night. I had a major pig out. Major. It's ok though. I think. I feel worse to myself for not BodyRocking the past 2 updates. So it's 2 workouts i'm behind. I should be able to catch up for when there is no update and i can fill in. I just have to set my mind to it. Sleep has been more important right now. And lounging around...
I'm sorry to my friends who are supporting me so much, with my back and forth stuff... i am trying to be with you, and then i take a step back...and i'm sorry. I think i need a new challenge. Something new and different to get myself pumped and hungry for it. I need to find it.
Back to work!

I feel a lot of a healthy lifestyle is down to momentum. Getting it going and then KEEPING it going. Often, it's the momentum i struggle with.
I have to challenge myself with momentum. Push that heavy ball and get it rolling, and then the challenge is to KEEP it rolling. I've done it before - i bloody know i can do it.
THEN PROVE IT, STEPH!!!
Today went well, quickfired during my day, ate well, and BodyRocked with skipping to finish. Yay! Rollin' rollin' rollin', keep those doggies rollin'!

I slacked. Big time. WHYYYYY???
My Sunday was frickin BRILLIANT. It couldn't have been any better. Monday Tuesday? Couldn't have been WORSE!! I hate this so much because i progress so far and eat major clean and push my body hard and it is in the zone to be changing and toning up and changing for the better.... to what i want to be and then BAM... i go and REVERSE the whole flipping process.
So i'm just gonna type what i've done.
Monday - no exercise. No Quickfiring either. Breakfast and lunch - great. I shopped Monday night and decided to have a little treat - a pizza. I should have exercised before dinner though, to atleast have a little defence from the pizza cals. Ok, so Monday wasn't too bad - IF Tuesday didn't happen.
Tuesday. Zero exercise or QFs. I do not want to use this part as an excuse and i am NOT using it as an excuse, but Monday night i found out a good old friend of mines grandparent died. I was very close to her, and was like another grand daughter growing up. It shook me up. I didn't sleep, and i spent the day under a cloud. I was so tired at the end of work. Again, that's not my excuse, i knew that if i just got changed and pushed for my workout i'd feel better. What did i do? Napped instead. THEN got up and ordered a burger with some more junk food.
Bad bad bad.
Oh and i had chippie chips for lunch too, just because they were there.
Ffs! Today i have been ok eating wise. I feel a little better as i've worked out now. Just annoyed with myself. Annoyed that this is what i'm doing lately, it's like a week on and a week off.
Now i've let off some steam - i need to act upon it. Sometimes i even forget HOW to eat healthy, WHAT to eat that's healthy. Such an idiot sometimes.

Pleased with myself today haha and my smoothie went so so well wooohoo! I think i shall carry on with these and have them for breakfast for a while!
Here's a little snippet of my smoothie...
I wish i could share the taste haha!
So i put a banana in it, a kiwi, some cherries, my protein powder, a tbsp of coconut oil and topped it with milk. Tasted verrrry good! =)
I cleaned my house for hours this morning which made me feel great - and it so needed it. I went shopping for a roast dinner for tonight, got home and prepared (i never usually prepare/cook the roast, DH does that!) then i chilled for a little while and had a cardio dance workout i haven't done for months. Felt great!
Oh and i weighed in and i'm down just over 3lbs so i'm way happy with that and i'm keeping it off!
Happy Sunday people! And Happy Mother's day to the US Mamma's!

I feel great today, really great.
I think part of it has to do with BodyRocking for 6 days this past week. I was pretty much burnt out Friday so i decided last minute to take it as a rest day. I felt a bit crappy about that because i had takeaway with the hubby and ate quite a bit of kebab meat. Nasty i know but i just love it, lol. Anywho's i feel i reversed that and got up early this morning. I did Friday's BodyRock workout, then did a short 4 min intense skip afterwards. I was jumping around my house feeling wonderful. Had my protein and went out for the day with some family.
I've eaten well today and overdosed on tomatoes - LOL. We went to some farm shops so i bought tomatoes to snack on, yummy idea me thinks! We walked along the beach and i ran around with my niece, burning some extra cals and just making myself feel even better!
Not long home so i did the next BR workout - just 6 minutes long. I should have maybe repeated it or skipped afterwards, but i used it as just a top up really, and mainly because i pushed hard and then didn't have anything left in me to do anything else but shower LOL.
I bought lots of fresh fruits today too so i think i'll have a post-workout smoothie in the morning with my hand blender. Although ill have to find the blender first LOL. I'm gonna go make a nice dinner to finish off my day. I feel so full of life and health right now, bodyrocking seriously pays off if you just stick at it and keep your chin up, yahoo!
OH and one more thing. I have a family party coming up at the end of the month, and my Mum and Sis were out shopping yesterday. I work like 24/7(not literally but almost:P) and they picked me up a slinky dress they thought would be perfect. Mum loves picking up sexy/slinky stuff for me now i've lost weight, LOL bless her. So i tried the dress on last night and it's a clingy one that i'd never ever pick but ya know what? I felt amazing in it! In a UK size 12 and it's COMFORTABLE! Seriously i could not believe it. I can't wait to wear it and i shall take a picture, i'm so excited already!!! The party is a black and white party too so i'm hopefully gonna be a little crazy and hire a WHITE suit for the hubby hahaha.
