I am now a member of the goal weight club! Amazing!! <BR> Best christmas pressy ... Wed, 19 Dec 2012 05:29:21 EST My goal for this week... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5158883 Ok so I have had a so/so week only done 4 days at the gym and my eating hasn't been the best how ever my goal for next week are as follows (I start my week on a Sat so I have no excuse for giving up by the weekend) <BR> <BR> 1) Gym 5-6 days this week <BR> 2) Only one treat day <BR> 3) More water, less cups of tea! <BR> 4) Much more fruit and veg <BR> 5) no eating on the go <BR> <BR> What mini goals are you setting for yourself this week? XX Fri, 7 Dec 2012 05:12:32 EST Does anyone eat half a can? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5140635 I was being a bit lazy tonight after work! I was at the gym for two hours this morning and just had time for a quick lunch before slugging it out at work for the rest of the day, naturally when I came home instead of going through the process of making soup. I decided to just grab a tin! <BR> Whilst pouring through all the tins and making a selection I noticed most if not all give you the nutritional values for half a tin?? Half a tin?? Now I'm maybe alone here, but I never thought my porti... Mon, 19 Nov 2012 16:50:35 EST Things I miss.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5137072 I'm having one of those weeks and even though I am chuffed to bits with getting to a healthy bmi I don't half miss being big sometimes, the weather is getting colder and I'm now FREEEEZING all the time. I no longer have my big boobs and as a result they have gone a bit saggy which is not gonna work with this seasons sheer panelling, even my tummy skin has sagged a bit leaving my belly button looking like a little sad mouth! :( and all the time I'm thinking about this I'm thinking how stinkin... Fri, 16 Nov 2012 06:18:41 EST that time... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5108745 I know it's a bit of a touchy subject for some but does anyone else have a massive problem staying on track just before "that time of the month"? <BR> I'm not even a massive fan of cakes or anything sweet but have had two cupcakes in the past two days! I've still been slugging it out in the gym but it's like I physically can't stop myself (and to think I thought will power was one of my strong points) I mean it's not like I'm totally binging ,thank goodness my pre monthly craving isn't for ... Mon, 22 Oct 2012 16:43:37 EST It's been a while http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5087526 and I have been totally lacking on my spark commitment but I have still been slugging it out and have finally reached a healthy bmi! Despite the fact I havn't actually lost a pound in the past three weeks I've still lost a dress size through toning up, hard to belive huh? I'll need to up date my page etc soon but it just shows anyone can do it!! <BR> Back to the reason I'm on! thought I would share with you a lovely little secret I've become proper obsessed with, if like me your on the rush a... Fri, 5 Oct 2012 07:52:30 EST so what... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5027589 I've been having an off day today, sometimes look at the little girls in the gym and think "if only I could look like that" but you know what, I'm almost 6 foot tall I'm never gonna be petite! I'm not gonna have long skinny legs, mine are long but pretty chunky and have massive big muscles. There is no point in compairing myself to girls with hour glass figures when I'm the shape of a rectangle. I'm never gonna have a pert little round arse mine is flat and a bit saggy but you know what..... ... Thu, 23 Aug 2012 09:22:54 EST Weigh in firday, dun dun dunnn! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5009202 Ok so weigh in today lost 2lb which is great but I'm fairly sure that's been over two weeks instead of one! Still even a pound a week is better than none! I also finally got out the 13stone range, ok by 1lb but it's still a cause to treat myself to a cut and color! I also went to the shops and got a wee bag of chocolate buttons as a treat for doing 6 days outta 7 at the gym. I know it's not the best practice treating yourself like a dog, but once isn't gonna kill me right? <BR> Hope everyone... Fri, 10 Aug 2012 06:11:19 EST New classes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5003001 CXworxs was brilliant, really sore but I think it'll defo be the best class for getting rid of my wobbly tum! bokwa was really good fun too, not sure I would keep it up due to the fact I have like no co-ordination. If you like zumba or a bitta dancing it's really good fun and you get a good giggle trying to learn the steps. Even if your as rubbish as me at them you still get a sweat on! :D <BR> Missed the new body combat yesterday moring due to the fact I prolly had one to many wines on Sat n... Mon, 6 Aug 2012 08:02:51 EST so, so close... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4999076 so the rapid weight loss has now slowed down but I appear to be gaining muscle so I'm not too fussed, calculated my bmi today and I am 1.5% away from being helthy 1.5!!! OK so it's still the very top of the healthy range but I can't belive it! 1.5!! :D <BR> New class launch at the gym tomorrow too so hopefully mixing up my routine will make a difference. I know it's a bit mad but I can't wait, gonna try CXworxs and bokwa the morrow morning and then they are doing a wine tasting and quiz nigh... Fri, 3 Aug 2012 07:21:11 EST Friday the 13th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4968186 It's not even mid day and already I'm feeling the pull towards the fridge.. Nooooo <BR> Woke up frist thing then went to find a clever meal replacement that I can eat on the bus between my two jobs, get to the town only to relise that nobody from our work has been paid! GREAT, so untill next week (when apparently it should be sorted out) It's basic rations and having heat and hot water or eating properly and freezing to death? GREAT!! <BR> I mean it could be worse I guess, but I already find ... Fri, 13 Jul 2012 06:18:41 EST fun "new" way to exercise! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4966709 Yesterday I tryed a new class going on at out local pool called "hydro spin" not sure if this is a new concept or just new to our pool but it is basically a spin calss underwater. <BR> I went for the first time yesterday, to be fair wasn't really looking forward to this one the thought of getting into my swimsuit is pretty horrific at the best of times without adding a sweaty spin class BUT... I have to say it was brilliant! defo not as sweaty as spin at the gym, you can't move your legs as ... Thu, 12 Jul 2012 07:42:17 EST little space! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4961667 Hello space inbetween my tighs! *waves* catch ya later rubbing! <BR> <BR> So I havn't been on in ages but I have been working my butt of quite littirally it would seem as I jamp on the scales this morning and *joy* I've lost much more than expected.

NOTHING!!! ouch! On the bright side I must have lost some inches, last month I managed 17.5 over all can't wait to see next weeks results! <... Thu, 31 May 2012 04:51:38 EST little cheats http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4897217 Ok so I have little motivation sometimes and have worked out a few "cheats" if you like to avoid piling on the pounds. Hope they can help others too! :) <BR> 1) chuck the scales near the fridge, not where you'll stand on um but just to stop you snacking! <BR> 2) when I first started to loose weight I ate infront of a mirror sounds mad but I was shoving food in so fast it made me stop and think about what I was actually eating! <BR> 3) hide all the snacks but leave a well stocked fruit bowl in...
