Weigh in Day

Today is weigh in day and I lost another 900 grams, which is just under 4 tubs 250 gram tubs of butter.

Last week I also lost 900 grams. I'm so happy that I have lost weight 2 weeks in a row and now all the weight I put on over christmas/new year has finally gone.

Sorry I haven't been around for a while. I started my new job a few weeks ago and whilst I've been sitting with people learning the systems etc I can't believe how tired I have been when I get home. I've only really been on the computer for about an hour each night after dinner. The new job is going rather well. The lady I replaced left yesterday and whilst she is very nice, she is hopeless at the job she just left, even after being their for 3 years. We can't wait till this coming week so we can start to change the way we do things, to the correct way or a more efficient way. At the moment we spend at least half of our day looking for things...

I'm on a 4 day training course this week and it is catered for i.e. morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea is provided. I so hope they have some healthy options as I don't want to undo all my hard work... I think I might take some fruit with me for morning and afternoon tea and see what they provide for lunch.

I'm pretty happy with how the past 2 weeks have gone, both with my weight loss and my new job...

Hope you had a great and safe New Years Eve...

I haven't done my measurements for months as I haven't really been exercising and sticking to the weight watchers program. Well today is the start of a new year and like millions of people around the world I've decided to start a fresh today.

My measurements at the beginning of 2008 were:-
Weight Watchers Start Weight is 115.9 kilos
Arms are 44 Cm's
Hips are 143 Cm's
Chest is 120 Cm's
Thighs are 66 Cm's
Upper Stomach is 137 Cm's

Weight as at 31/12/2008 is 103.4 kilos
Arms are 38 Cm's
Hips are 132 Cm's
Chest is 118 Cm's
Thighs are 59 Cm's
Upper Stomach is 126 Cm's

I did manage to lose some weight and Cm's and the results are:-

Weight loss is 12.5 kilos

Arms is 6
Hips is 11 Cm's
Chest is 2
Thighs 7
Upper Stomach is 11 Cm's

So all up I lost 12.5 kilos and 37 cm's off my whole body. I can't say that I'm all that happy with the results, however at least I am smaller and healthier.

My Wii fit age today was 26. This is based on my height, weight, results of my balanced exercise. Yesterday my Wii fit age was 34....

Edit:- 11.30 p.m.... I managed to do 60 mins of the yoga exercises on the Wii fit today and I felt so good afterwards. I so needed a good stretch after yesterday's workout. Not sure why but every time I go to do a Wii Fit workout Brad has to come down stairs in the middle of it and interupt me or sit there an watch me. It really annoys me and puts me off the whole thing. I wish he would just leave me to it...

Yesterday I managed to do 40 minutes of cardio with the majority of it being jogging. I actually jogged around the island twice (11 mins each time). Half way during the 2nd jog I got a cramp in my calf muscle, needless to say I did continue and finish the jog. I ended up having a sore calf muscle all night.
