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.

I have had a great start for the year, as many of you know I went away for a week to help Susie SUSIEPH1) celebrate her 70th birthday. A long drive but I did it with no problems at all and it was a very hot day when I left.
I learnt lots while I was with Susie about eating and I have increased my calories, which i confess I have been told to before, but I knew better. Well so far this year I have lost 2.3 kgs. which is about 5 lbs. So I am over the moon with.
I also went over to Whyalla with my son to pick up his children today and we had decided to drive down the coast, so I have drove another 460kms (about 285 miles) today.
For so many years I have said "I Can't" I have now proved I can and now must get this my head and realise I can do anything I want.
I can do it. What a great feeling.
