So yesterday I had a bit of an eating obstacle.. and this time I had a gym obstacle! Though not the kind that you can blame on lack of focus and motivation.. maybe. Being the weekend of course I have plenty of time to set aside an hour to g... Read more
Bit of an obstacle...
Friday, January 11, 2013      3 comments

So today I did the biggest no-no. Fast food! Ach. When at work got a call out to a rural area. I stopped at a seaside town which didn't have much of any shops. The only thing with anything remotely healthy was a general store but I didn't have ... Read more
New start - 9 days later!
Thursday, January 10, 2013      3 comments

Okay, so I thought time for a new start. Nicely timed with the New Year, isn't it? I was reading statistics on resolutions and apparently only 8% of people actually succeed in their New Year resolutions. How demoralising :) Anyway, if you h... Read more

Tuesday, September 25, 2012      2 comments

Okay, so day 2 is here. Not as difficult as I thought it would be. I've been mostly good. No biscuits or sweet things today! So last night I went to the local gym for the first time. It's not a real flashy place, but it'll do. The bike isn'... Read more

So today I thought I would review the new app I downloaded by Zen Labs, loving it so far. It's called C25K. And yes it says "25" but it's actually the program for the 5k at the moment. Here's a picture of the screen: ... Read more
Calorie range and self-defeating thoughts
Monday, April 23, 2012      3 comments

I'm struggling to keep to my calorie range. It has dropped 200 calories and that is killing me. When I reach my mini goals the app re-calculates what my range should be based on my new weight rather than my old weight, which is now 1400 calories... Read more

Mothers are lame
Thursday, April 19, 2012      5 comments

I wrote this whole spiel about my mother and how she's frustrating me but I think it makes me sound like a brat, lol. Basically I have limited funds to live on while I'm studying (hopefully I will get that full-time job soon) but in the meantime... Read more

Goodbye BLC 13!
Friday, April 06, 2012      5 comments

So the BLC 13 has ended and I am so sad to see it go! I had so many weeks where the scale didn't move and I didn't meet my goal either. Nothing to get down about, though! So first thing I did was read my "Letter to my future self (9 Jan)". ... Read more
Progress Report - Week 6
Sunday, February 19, 2012      2 comments

Oh my God - it's halfway through the challenge!! Well, this is bad, because I haven't reached half of my goal and we all know the longer we go the more the weight loss slows down. It's really disheartening the roadblocks I've had lately. Maybe I... Read more
