Operation Tiger Day 4

It was nice to have a long weekend but it was also a bit of a sad one for me... ANZAC day is always day to remember the fallen but it also the anniversay of my favourite aunty's death (cancer) and an anniversay of my brother death (decided life wan't worth living - lol)...

Needless to say I emotionally ate over the weekend but the good thing was I also chucked all remaining chocolate in the bin sunday night...

Yesterday was a much better day food wise which is good.... WI on Saturday saw a gain of 700 grams which I expected... I'm ok with that...

Food today is:-
Breakfast - Oats (its cold in Sydney today) 200ml skim milk and half a cup of fruit salad.
Black Coffee
Sugar free Monster

Morning Tea Peppermint Tea (no sugar or milk)
2 mandarins
1 small green pear

Salad, tuna, Chop Chop Chicken, multigrain breadroll
200 gram diet fruit salad yoghurt
375ml can coke zero


Dinnner - not sure we are going to the local club for dinner.

I've only had 750mls of water so far today so I better get stuck into it.

I jogged using the Wii fit this morning for 30 mins and will go for an hour walk with my brother before going out...

I'm also thinking of point cycling, like the old wendi plan. I kind of do that now expect I'm using the majority of my exercise points to do it. I tend to eat more when not at work i.e. weekend and then stick to my points during the week. I seem to be on this plateau for way too long and so want to get off and crack that 90 kilo mark.

I get 21 points per day or 147 per week and I do tend to look at things on a weekly basis. I also earn at least 6 exercise points per day and I'm only allowed to save 4 of them or 28 points per week, so that see's me eating 2 extra points per day. As a resul tof this I'm thinking of the following daily points:-

Saturday 23 (including exercise points of 2 25)
Sunday 27 (including exercise points of 2 29)
Monday 19 (including exercise points of 2 21)
Tuesday 18 (including exercise points of 2 23)
Wednesday 22 (including exercise points of 2 24)
Thursday 20 (including exercise points of 2 22)
Friday 18 (including exercise points 2 20)

I'm planning on starting this Saturday, WI day and see how I go for 1 week and then will reassess.

In Terms of Operation Tiger obejctives:-

50 mins of Wii Fit jogging 5 days per week (in the mornings instead of my usual walk) - have done 30 mins today. Will do another 20 mins before I go to bed tonight. Yesterday walked in instead.
60 mins walk with my brother 5-6 days per week - walked 60-90 mins saturday, sunday and monday so far.
Drink at least 2 litres of water per day. done so far
Eat Healthly food and minimise junk food. Working on it...
Sticking to my 21 weight watchers points per day. Haven't done well on this so far this week. Today is a new day.

Operation Tiger started yesterday and didn't overall really get off that well....

What went well...

Operation Tiger part 1

Tomorrow is WI day and after the week I've had with over eatting chocolate I know that I will have a gain on the scales.. Just don't know how much of one... Its OK if I overeat then I need to be prepared for the consequences.

I'm so sick and tired of not being able to crack the 90 kilo mark and feeling like a hippo. I've been trying to crack under 90 since since October 2009... Enough is enough so I'm going to give myself a challenge and wipe the slate clean.... My challenge will be called Operation Tiger part 1. I still have about 24 kilos to go to get to goal and look like a nice sleek Tiger, so this will be done in parts.

Objectives for Operation Tiger Part 1 are:-

Term of Operation 12 weeks starting 24/04/2010.
50 mins of Wii Fit jogging 5 days per week (in the mornings instead of my usual walk).
60 mins walk with my brother 5-6 days per week.
Drink at least 2 litres of water per day.
Eat Healthly food and minimise junk food.
Sticking to my 21 weight watchers points per day.
Aiming to lose 600 grams per week and be under 85 kilos at the end of Operation period.

Under 90 kilos - buy myself some new boots.
Under 85 kilos - acrylic finger nails.

Today's activities

Its a bit hot in the office today and with it being such a nice day I'd rather be anywhere else right now.

I also didn't sleep all that well last night so I only did 30 minutes of jogging on the Wii Fit this morning.

Menu so far today is:-

3 weetbix
200ml of skim milk
125ml of fruit salad.
Black Coffee
500ml sugar free monster.

Snacks -
I forgot to bring some but I do have 2 green apples on my desk from previous days that I haven't eatten yet.

Lunch - I have a farewell to go today and we are going yum cha... Whilst we only eat the steam stuff I hope I don't overeat like normal.

Dinner - nothing planned yet we will how I feel and what time I get home.

I've already drunk a 750ml water, and I'm currently drinking a 500ml mineral water.

I'm also planning on going to Zumba tonight which starts at 6.15 p.m. and will earn me about 8 bonus points.

Tuesday, April 13, 2010


Wow I'm about to write 2 posts in 2 days... I can't remember the last time I did that here... LOL....

Last night I decided to that I would get up early today and use the Wii Fit Plus instead of going for my usual 40 minute walk... I think I'm getting a bit bored of my morning walk and need to do a few different things.

I'm please to say that yes I did get up at 5.30 a.m. and I managed to do 52 minutes on the Wii Fit Plus. This was made up of 20 minutes boxing and 32 minutes of jogging (its on the spot for those who haven't used a Wii before). I find it funny that I can jog for 12 minutes at a time on Wii Fit without any problems or feeling too tired but I can't jog for more than a few street blocks on the road.... Interesting... I'm feeling a little bit stiff and sore right now.... Must remember to streatch later.

Yesterday was a good day... I did my exercise and stuck to my points... I even managed to save a few points to go towards covering my already eatten chocolate points...

Heres to another good day today..

Lost my way.....

I seem to have lost my way a bit on my weight loss journey.... My weight has been going up and down the same few kilos over the past few months... Whilst I know that the biggest loser show is not realistic and the weight loss also isn't realistic, I sometime wonder how they can lose such big numbers consistantly and I can't seem to lose 2 weeks in a row.... mmmmm.....

This might actually have something to do with it. I thought I'd post this here and admit that I pigged out on Chocolate during the weekend. I’m not sure why I did it, as I have been so good with no eating a lot of chocolate lately. I can tell you that both occasions happened in the middle of the afternoon.

The good thing is that I have tracked it all and am making myself accountable for it… When I added it to my tracker today it worked out I ate 23 points of chocolate on Saturday and another 20 points on Sunday…I weigh in on Saturday’s so I’m fairly new into my WW week. So far this week I have earnt 18 exercise points, with another 18.5 points to make up so I’m even.

I’m hoping that my posting this here and also making myself accountable for it on my tracker that I will learn from this and move on.

I’m seeing a week full of jogging with the Wii Fit and am also looking at starting to use the Stepper machine at the gym in anticipation of the 1000 steps walk that we might do in Melbourne in May. Steps are so not my thing….
