I have to admit I have been very complacent over the last 6 weeks. Definitely old habbits creeping back in. Having said that I have now lost 21.8 kgs. But it has slowed right down.
I know the exercise I am doing (thank goodness) has helped with the bad choices. All good though. I am still losing and not stressing about the scales. It's such a good feeling.
I am down to my lowest weight in years but I still have 40 kgs to lose so the job isn't done by a long way.
I am back to tracking online as of today. It keeps me accountable. This way I can eat and drink anything and still lose weight because I stop when I reach the end of my points each day. End of story. When I honestly track, I lose bigger numbers.
Ashleigh's bully situation is getting better. The school has finally addressed the problem. I am very annoyed still because they won't tell me if this child has been dealt with. Do I have rights here or does the privacy act prevent me from knowing how they have dealt with her?
Ashleigh finally understands that she needs to stand up to these type of kids so we shall see what happens next.
Busy day tomorrow. Soccer, lunch with Tania and Martine which I am really looking forward to, netball and then we are off to my best friend Lee's brother's 50th. He is having a party near Victor Harbour which is about 1.5 hours away from us so we are camping along with a few others I imagine. It is going to be freezing and probably raining so I will have a few drinks to keep me warm. Quite a few - LOL!!!
Then we have to be back by 12pm Sunday for the Port V Richmond game.
I'm going to make some soup tomorrow. I'll be getting up early because there are no hours left. I am hanging out for soup. Isn't it funny how you crave thick, hearty soup in this weather. Yummo.
Nikki's ankle is improving. She is walking without pain now but she hasn't been allowed to run yet so that will be the test. It's been about 4 weeks now so it shouldn't be too much longer.
I have really been enjoying the exercise I am doing. I have cut down the walks outside because of the weather and it being dark so early. So instead I am walking once a week and twice a week on the treadmill. I have been doing 45 minutes starting at speed 5 and going up to 6 at the end. I am surprised how much harder I am working. I was really sweating by the end this afternoon which I don't do when I walk. So I am definitelty upping the intensity and enjoying it. I am also doing 1 weights session a week with a friend who has a home gym. I know once a week is not enough but honestly, I can't fit in any more. With 3 kids doing sport and sports practice, there are not too many free nights.
I'll be back next week to update with some good weight loss news.
