Why Why Why

Sorry need to have a whinge at myself. Why do I do it to myself????? I know what to do to lose weight but why do I self sabotage????

I've been walking to work for the past 3 and a bit weeks and if I'm honest with myself my eating has been crap for at least the past 2/3 weeks. Why is it if I do exercise I tend to eat crap and if I don't exercise I stick to my points and eat healthy food??? Why am I incapable of doing both????

I guess the answers to this is why I have a weight problem and have bouncing around at this weight for the past 6 months.

I did manage to get under 100 kilos the other week but didn't really feel like posting a celebratory post cause I didn't get as excited as I should have....

I currently weigh 99.7 kilos and that's a total loss of 16.2 kilos over the past 13 months. Not all that great when you look at the time its taken, but at least I've lost something I guess...

I'm off to Melbourne tomorrow for the F1 Grand Prix and with money a bit tight this year, I'm planning on eating breakfast in the motel (cereal, skim milk fruit and maybe some toast). Also with the race being a mid afternoon race (not starting to 5.30 p.m.) the gates don't open until 11.30 a.m. We are planning on using the gym and pool at the motel, which is another good thing, especially given the late starting time.

This post isn't about feeling sorry for myself etc., it more to get some stuff out of my head that has been stressing me out for a little while....

Just need to do it... Fake it till I can make it......

So Close but yet so far.....

Weigh in day always seems to come around so fast.

I weighed in today and lost 1.3 kilos and normally I'd be jumping up and down and very excited but not today. I was so close but yet so far away from double digits. Yes that's right just missed double digits buy a small tub of butter - 200 grams. My weight this week is 100.1 kilos... It's so not fair, surely I could have found a way to lose another 200 grams this week but nope not this little black duck... Oh well there is always next week and next week I will do it..

The good news is that I did make my first mini goal today and I'm 2 kilos closer to achieving my overseas weight loss goal. My reward for this was a new suit for work. I bought a brown pin strip suit from Autograph. I actually got into their size 16 pants, but were a little snug around my stomach and hips (the joys of being an apple shape) and a size 20 jacket (another job of being an apple shape is that you need to get tops/jackets a size or 2 bigger than the pants you wear, otherwise they don't do up around your stomach area). The other good thing they had a 20% off sale on Thursday when I bought it. Yes I knew that I'd get my 2 kilo goal by them even if it was unofficial.

I'm now 1.3 kilos off my 2nd mini goal and I'd love to get that before I fly to Melbourne in 18 days time... I'm so inspired at the moment and am thinking of continuing walking to work. I did manage to walk to work all 5 days last week. I even managed to walk to my WI and back today....

You could say I'm a woman on a mission right now. Just need to make a few better choices with my food and all will be good.

Walking to work again

Yes I did walk to work again today. I must admit that when my alarm went off this morning I didn't want to get out of bed and walk to work, but I did. I hate getting out of bed, but once I'm out all is fine.

For those who asked, my walk to work is about 4 kms and I can walk it in between 35 to 40 mins depending on how quickly I can cross the 2 major roads that I need to.

I so hope this helps with me losing the 700 grams I need to lose this week to get to my first mini goal.

Walking to Work and back

I have decided to walk to work this week to see if my body can cope with so much exercise and to see if I can do without a car.

Today was day one of walking to work and back and so far so good... I did enjoy my walk today, that much I'm going to give it another go tomorrow as well. Oh course I'm also hoping it will have a positive affect on my weight loss this week...

For those who are a bit concerned on what happens if it rains, well I have a plan. I can either catch the bus at the end of my street and that goes to a few blocks from work, or I can walk in the rain with an umbrella and & raincoat...
