Week Four Day Five – Feeling good & popcorn

Can I say that I feel good!  I feel good.  Like, really good.  I enjoyed the workout… not really but you do feel better after. I am eating well & I am feeling motivated.  I really want to lose 6kg by week 6, so I had better get a move on.  Easter is over and the school holidays are almost gone.  Then the real work begins.

I had the team work out last night.  I used muscles I have never used before.  But the thing is, I also used those muscles today at FF.  What are they?  They hurt.

I have also realized that I have a long way to go.  A long long way to fitness.  I am weak.  My body is weak.  I don’t like that feeling.  I really hate it.  I have never felt weak before. Weird feeling.  I knew I wasn’t strong, but not weak.  It is humbling to work that out.  I will not give up.  I will become strong.

I am sitting here eating popcorn and drinking water, and enjoying it. 🙂

Enjoy your Friday!


Week Four Day Four – Holidays and Easter Eggs

We are well into week 4!  How did that happen?

We have been away.  Camping.  It was not fun.  I love love love camping but with rain, sickness and friends cranky kids, not fun.  I did love sleeping in a tent and hearing the waves crash on the beach and the thunder roll over us.  I love my family.  They are the coolest, kindest, funnest people I know.  I love that I said no.  I said no to hot chips and chocolate and junk.  I did have a little but I said no a lot.

I hate the public showers.  I hate kids that cry and go on & on & on.  I hate that I did no exercise for a week.  I hate that I am going to say… I missed exercise.  Eek.  Who am I?  But I really did miss it.

After being away, I feel lost and off track. My goal is still 1 kg a week over the 12 weeks.  I am not at that yet.  I have to work really really hard to drop my 6kg by week 6!   I can do it.  I can do it. I have to do it.  Fiji is like 69 days away.

I have just planned out my meals for the week.  I need to plan my exercise for the week.  I need to smash it this week.  I can and will smash it.

So I am back to technology and phones and blogging.  I didn’t miss it.

Till tomorrow.

Week Three Day One – Not a good weekend.

This has not been a good weekend…. Well. thinking about it, it would normally been good!  I ate off plan and I feel it.  With my daughters birthday party I didn’t eat till 4pm!  No breakfast, no lunch and no snack.  That was the problem.  I did plan to eat but the first chance I got it was 4pm!  I then ate cake.  Yep.  It was good.  Sunday was just a mess.  I ate off plan but I ate ok.  I just feel crap.  Not my plan.  It is now making me worried about camping over Easter.  Will I be about to do it?  We are camping with another family and they are not the best at healthy eating.  I am really stressed out about it.  EEK.

I have planned out my meals.  I have eaten my Goji Super breakfast. FF tonight.  Ok Crave?  Do you want this?

Week Two Day Four – Spin Class & No LOSS!

I did my very first spin class tonight!  WOW I did it.  I was slow and my bum hurt so bad, but I did it.  That is one fear off the list.  I really wanted to try it.  Don’t need to do that again! Ba ha ha.

I walked today.   A really long walk.  Our car was being serviced. I called a friend for a coffee catch up but cancelled and walked instead. Go Team Me! Who am I.

I am loving the friends I am making at the Gym.  I didn’t know anyone. Now I have a team of friends.  Liking it.

I am a bit annoyed at the scales.  I haven’t gone down since Monday.  What is with that.  I am working hard here.  You get yourself together scales.

Time for bed.  Spin is hard.  FF tomorrow!  Ouch.

Week Two Day Three – Oh No & Shake

I do not feel good today.  Oh my I do not feel good.  I woke up ok but the headache started about 10am. I am cool with it.  I haven’t had any sugar.  All good. But tonight I have been running to the bathroom and having a ‘workout’ there.  Is this a part of the detox?  Is this ok or am I sick.  I feel like crap.

My daughter was home from school today.  We had to do heaps to do,  all around town, including a movie!  Home was good but not as funny as I thought it would be.  I have had two shakes today.  I had no time to eat so I just had a shake.  I know.  This planning thing must happen next week or I am in trouble.  School holidays start.  Oh boy.  How Am I Going To Do It For 2 Weeks?

Ok.  So my task for the rest of the week is to plan for next week.  I am going to plan out my meals.  I think I need to look ahead and change things up.  This week was harder than last week.  I am going to need to put some time into this. I will let you know my eating plan!

Effort needs to be made!  Done. Bring on the rest of the week!

Week Two Day Two – Feeling good & rowing hurts

I started feeling good today.  I didn’t fall asleep as soon as I sat down.  Gym was first up today.  I tried the rowing machine.  There was already 5 mins on there and I didn’t have a clue how to reset it so I just kept going.  Well, the lady next to me was really impressed.  I had done 10 mins and was looking fine. Ba ha ha.  She didn’t need to know the truth. 😉 Rowing hurts!  I was thinking it was just rowing but wow that is a workout.

I am just glad I am not so tired all the time. I am hoping this improves in the next coming days.  Energy would be nice.  I am sick of not having life in me. I need it.

Short one today.  I have saved my hot chocolate… well the thing that is closest to hot chocolate… and I am going to catch up on The Good Wife.


Week One Day Six – Wow that hurts & Salt

What is that pain? Oh My Goodness!  That really really hurts.  Every step… up or down, in or out, what … ouch… can’t…AGAIN!

So you might have figured out that my FF workout yesterday has pushed me to my limit… or over it.  I am in so much pain today.  How can this be good?  No, I really want you to answer because I have no answers today.  I can’t do anything!  I felt good yesterday. Today day the only word is crap!  I am starving for the first time this week.  I can’t move.  I still know why I am doing this but I am getting tired.  So very tired.  When does this extra energy kick in?  I have been told about it but I don’t have the faith to believe it yet.

12 weeks.

12 weeks.

A long 12 weeks.

I can do this.  I can do this. I CAN DO THIS.

I am craving salt.  Well, salty food.  Chips.  The joy of that crunch.  I can give up chocolate.  I like it but it’s ok not to have it but chips are my weakness.  I need to give them up for 12 weeks.  I need to break the stronghold they have on my taste buds. I need to forget there goodness and remember there badness.  4

12 weeks

12 weeks

A long 12 weeks.

This challenge is going to shake me to my core.  It is going to bring everything to the table and lay it out for dinner.  I am doing this.
