Happy Valentine's Day.
Went back to my excerise class today, was not quite so hard today as Monday. Still lots of whole body movement. Lot different from the other instructor.
Still enjoyed it.
I had a very pleasant surprised today as I was notified by Sparks that I have become a "SparkPeople Motivator". So I would like to thank everyone who has voted for me so I could receive this honour. What a shock.
Everything else is okay at the moment. Have a doctor's appointment next Thursday about my blood tests and toe. I will be in Adelaide 2 or 3 days next week for the court sitting due to the family issues. My son will take his laptop so I will have to get it off of him so I can log on. LOL
More hot weather coming. Yuk

Hi everyone, what a wonderful response from the last blog that I wrote.
In this I talked about not doing as much exercising as I was due to being so busy. Decided not to put it off any longer because of the family issues and just go when I can. I had planned for this to happen in March but I really do not know when these family issues will be solved.
So today I decided to get my butt into gear and start, I did 30 minutes in the yard, great for strength and cardio as it was hard work.
Then I went back to my exercise class this afternoon, we have a new instructor for a while until the other one comes back froma operation. This new instructor also teaches at the local gym and has many years of experience. Well I had my butt kicked.
So fast, contant moving, a lot more squats, etc, a lot more active than the other instructor. But I did enjoy it.
Perspired like a tap. So it must have been good for me. LOL.
Also I know I am going to feel it tomorrow. But I will be going back on Thursday.
Today there was a lot of strength and cardio completed and gee did it feel good. You bet it did.
So onwards towards reaching my goals.

I cannot believe how long it has been without blogging.
My life is wonderful. I am comfortable with myself and very happy with the progress that I am making, this is not all just about weight loss. It is about all the changes that have happened in my life since I started on my journey of self-discorvery.
I helped my son look his children for a week over the holidays and coped with this. Yes I got very tired but after I had a good nigth sleep, I woke up fine the next morning. Before if I had been so tired I would ahve taken 3 or 4 days or more to improve again.
Even the way I think now, before when tired I would buy takeaway as I thought with was easier, now my thoughts are that by the time you drive there, order, wait and then home, it is easier to go home and put a meal in the microwave to warm up. I really believe this is so much quicker and easier.
I usually have about 6 meals in the freezer that I have cooked before hand to make it easier. I do admit that I had one meal of the news twister from KFC which was a BLT with grilled chicken but when I checked on the calories and sodium it just is not worth it. I thought this was healthy. I learnt my lesson the hard way.
I have been so busy dealing with family issues that my exercising has dropped off a bit. But not really concerned about this at the moment becasue I am busy. It must count for something. I am not stressed either which has surprised me.
This year I have lost a total of 3 .3kgs which is around 7 pounds.
Cooking a lot of really healthy meals now. Using a dietitic cook book I borrowed from a friend. Even though my sugar levels are normal I still think it is helping.
I was udpdating my award today to include the 20kgs total loss when I realised that I had not put in the 2 year Spark Anniversary so this was a bit late in coming.
I can also give other people the support that they need in the family.
This has been a long eventful journey I have made so many changes that it is so exciting to wonder what I am going to like in another 6 months. I have still got a long journey ahead but I will get there.
1. food, it is a way of life now
2. get over being tired so much easier.
3. do not need a afternoon nap nearly everyday, only very occassional now.
4. not so judgemental of me.
5. I do not beat myself up anymore. I know I can right any mistake I make.
6. feelings about me have changed.
7. feeling well and feeling great.
I am incredible, I am worth it. I do love me. I am a fantastic person. I ahve come a long way.
Here's to continuing the journey to greatness.
I must also have blood test next week as it has been a while wince I had one. I am hoping for some good results.
