The Day Two Fizzer

The day began at 5:30am.. when I rolled over and hit stop on my alarm. 

And promptly went back to sleep.

There was some bargain going on in my head like 'I'll do it later'.

Then later came, at 4:30pm after work.

About the same time three other things happened.

1. I realised I'd forgotten to get the meat out to defrost for dinner
2. The husband appeared with a magical bar of chocolate that somehow got consumed without my being conscious of it,
and 3. I remembered that I'm pretty exhausted by the time I'm finished work!

So I watched Netflix and we had a kind of healthy version of 'take-out' - roast chicken with a couple of chips and salad.  I ate it all. Along with the chocolate bar and my afternoon tea (a chocolate muffin with Nutella for icing).

Fortunately, I didn't end up over calories - if I calculated them correctly - and even though I didn't do my workout, I was still fairly active with over 7k steps.  Definitely sub-par, but not catastrophic!

Well, except that today is my monthly Day One.  Yes, that explains my foul mood yesterday, and the chocolate today.

Let's hope the scales aren't too nasty in the morning! 

Speaking of which.. time for bed if I want to get up and run in the morning!

The first day of March 12wbt

So that was me at 5:30am this morning. 



And outside.


It was a dull and rainy morning made all the more exciting by the fact that I witnessed it!  Yup, I'm a little proud.

It might be hard to tell because I'm really, really tired right now!  At 8:30pm.

Yup, I'm ready for bed!

At least I ate dinner - 450 cals (I ended up eating another serve of the CCs)

My calorie intake for the day is sitting right on 1200cals, steps over 17000 with total calories out at over 2200kcal. 

Will I do it all again tomorrow?

On the Eve of March 2017 12wbt Round...

I don't feel excited, I don't feel motivated.

I feel flat, anxious, and a bit over it.

It's rainy weather, but still muggy and hot.

And I didn't do my fitness test. 

But.. I did make muffins.  Grudgingly.  At the last minute.

And I'm generally awesome because I already  have a stocked freezer, so a cook up is not required. 

Thankfully because I didn't have the money to do a proper shop today - I could only afford one meal and the honey soy chicken on Tuesday night was the one that cost the least!  So re-heated chilli beef it is on Monday night!

So in spite of today and all the 'eat all the junk food in the house' that went on, I should be okay for tomorrow. 

But let's wait and see how I react to a 5:30am alarm!

Here I go again.

Saturday Before Day 1 of March Round....

I feel the need to be quiet.

I feel shame/guilt about my wasted rounds at a time I can barely afford to do them.

I'm all good intentions!

So this is for the good, the bad and ugly. 

No matter what is happening, the bare truth is what is seen here.

The Blessed Weigh in Wednesday and Some Goal Setting!

First up, some numbers:

Start: 72.2
Now: 71.4
This week's loss: 800g

Phew! Now I have that out of the way, let's move on to the good stuff!


I'm going to go really light on the goal setting.

I want to lose 20kg, not in one round though.. 6-8kg would be awesome, 10kg would be out of this world! I think I'd be concerned if I lost the full 20kg in one round!

I'd like to get 10000 steps a day for most days (say one or two days a week excepted).
I'd like to do some regular yoga, and start back with some running.
I'd like to start tennis or swimming maybe, and see how I go back in the gym. 
I'd like to do some classes, maybe get back into the floor weights.

I just feel too delicate to put out big arse goals.  I just want to be better then right now.

Refresh, Renew, Revive!

I am starting this blog again!  Its been way too long and this blog was so successful in helping me get through everything!

So here I am, nearly four years later, about to start the September 2016 round of 12wbt 12kg heavier then my last weigh in in 2012.

It's not for lack of trying either: I've signed up to multiple challenges and this is my 12th round of 12wbt now!

But I've been bringing my past into it and putting pressure on myself.  Wanting to do lean and strong, wanting to run 5-10km when I haven't done much running in years!  This time I am coming in clean.  Like I've never done it before.

So that amazing person up there.. she is going to do this.  And do it well!
