12 week challenge

Sort of finished week 1 (it actually officially started on thurs but I started Monday)
Had a consultation with the diet coach and yeah-I know breakfast of an apple or two is not really enough but it seems to suit me!
However, what this has done has made me cut out a lot of junk ( cakes etc and that constant nibbling)
Aim is to include more vegies and then I think I might be on a better road. Exercise is going well- I love it!
I managed 30lbs on the d/b pullover. This might not seem a great deal- but seeing that I have a back that is prone to injury around the scapular- this is GREAT!!!
I've lost about 1.5kg so far- which I think is just cutting out the junk!


Well we saw it and really enjoyed this movie ( hubby LOVED IT) that seems to be getting it in the neck from critics! After seeing it and then reading the Heraldsun critic ( with whom I NEVER agree) I not sure he really 'got ' it! It wasn't fast paced or overdone- I think it was sensitively directed and all parts of the story came together in a neat package at the end. Anyway- life would be boring if we all agreed with each other!!! It gets my vote!!

All going well

I've had a week and half back at tafe and it's all settling down very nicely! Got some lovely students and the classes are all in the morning which means free afternoons! yaaaahhh!
The 12 week challenge at my gym starts Monday so that will be a challenge!! It will be interesting to see if I stick at it the whole 12 weeks. I'm really going to try but it will mean changing eating habits quite a lot. At the moment I don't eat a great deal earlier in the day but gradually gather pace as the day goes on! If I eat more in the morning I just seem to keep looking for food. So- to eat more earlier is going to be mentally challenging! I don't need to lose weight but I do need to eat more healthily. I'm also aware that it doesn't take a great deal of effort for the weight to creep up and suddenly WHAM - you've put on 5, 6, 7, kg or so. Def don't want to go there!!!

Good intentions

I had all good intentions of either going for a run or the gym after a morning at TAFE. When I had finished there- I really didn't feel like doing either! Being the princess I am- I let myself come home instead.
However- to my credit- I did a workout of sorts at home. Ran up and down our drive (220 m) then did leg exercises inbetween. 20 mins later and I'm a bit 'over it'! However I did raise a sweat and it was rather nice doing something outside at home for a change.
