I learnt a very important lesson ont the weekend....Its extremely important to remain organised when trying to live a healthy lifestyle!

On Saturday it was treat meal day. It was also the one day out of six weeks that i had to work a weekend. At work we organise lunch for our staff. So i thought i would organise something healthy for them as that would work out extremely convenient for me. So i brought bread, sandwiches, meat, cheese, salad etc. In addition to that i bought lollies and a whole heap of junk food. On Saturday, i over indulged in my lunch including having some chips and chocolate.

That night i also went to a 30th birthday and didnt eat before hand as i was still full from lunch. I went to the party and then later became hungry. Of all the times i had to feel that way. Nothing remotely healthy around so i ate terrible again.

I should have organised myself a lot better. I should have prepared lunch and dinner and just stuck with it as i thought i would be able to do the whole "make my own choices". I realise im not ready for that yet. Baby steps!

Although as i write this blog i realise that im blaming the lack of organisation. This is my excuse.

How do i feel today? I have a food hangover and i feel gross. Im going back to do some of my preseason tasks and i wont be putting myself in that position again.

I also made a decision today about what i will do when Bootcamp finishes in about 4 - 5 weeks. Im going to join the gym and go to classes. A lot of my friends go there and im really looking forward to the classes.

That's all from me today...hopefully the next post will be one of inspiration and passion!

I feel amazing. Enough said!

Tuesday, February 22, 2011


Today felt like a long day at work. By 5 o'clock i was dying to go home but was so exhausted. I ended up leaving work at 6 o'clock.

I had planned this week to go to the gym on Tuesday nights. Today is weigh-in day at work. We are doing a 12 week challenge. I dont like to eat or drink before this weigh-in hence why i dont want to exercise before work.

Driving home i had all the excuses going through my head. Im too tired, ive eaten well today. Then in my head i thought "pull yourself together"! Your just making excuses and this is the main point of this program which you paid $199.

So i did it! I beat the excuses and i went to the gym. I trained hard and burnt almost 400 calories.

Im doing really well!! Tomorrow is weigh in day, so hopefully the results will show. I weighed myself last week so it should be an accurate weigh-on.

I may reassess my goals in a few weeks but see how things go. I may aim to get to 79.9kg but im thinking that may be a stretch but if you work hard the results will pay off. Wont it?

Weigh-in Day!!!!!

Lost 1.1kg this week. So excited!!! Starting to look good. Total weightloss is now 5.5kg! Go me!

I love weigh-in day when i have lost weight. The nervousness right before i step on the scales right up to the elation of seeing a weightloss. Day by day i find it hard to see results so the scales reassures me that i am doing the right thing.

The countdown is on! 6 days until the start of the 12wbt. Thursday we get our plans for next week which i am so excited about!

I do need to buy a tape measure and im not sure where to get this from and going to Spotlight seems like an effort. Might have to borrow one. I know if i dont do it then i will be disappointed.

Anyways, boring post today - just wanted to offically record my weightloss!

Today was a day of mixed emotions after a sleepless night!

This morning i was emotional mainly due to being tired. I had a long drive home so couldnt even go for a work to ease my mind.

When i got home i put together my shopping list. With one week to go until the 12WBT i have decided to follow Michelle Bridges Crunchtime book. I then went shopping. Buying all fresh food made me happy. I came home and prepared lunch. It looks so good i could eat it now.

Tomorrow nights dinner is pumpkin soup. Im really looking forward to that! I will see how my cooking skills go!

I RAN 1KM TODAY........

My friend asked me yesterday if i want to go to Pump Class today. I said yes.

This morning i woke up after a terrible nights sleep (woke up 4 times) and decided that i wasnt going to go. I got up, went to the toilet and weighed myself. This is my usual morning routine now. After jumping on the scales i realised that i hadnt lost any weight since yesterday. This just confirmed to me that i needed to go to the gym regardless of how tired i was. So off i went!

Got to the gym and did the Pump Class. Then jumped on the bikes, then the tready. Managed to run 1km straight without stopping. I felt like i had good form. I loved it. It was amazing! I will be running the 5km Run for the Kids before you know it. I ended up spending 2 hours at the gym.

Today, i felt amazing. Getting up and going to the gym (even though i didnt want to) was the best thing i did. Not only did i get my exercise in but i made myself proud and felt food all day!

The moral of the story - sometimes an obsessive personality is not such a bad thing. If i wasnt obsessed with weighing myself on a daily basis then i wouldnt have gone to the gym today. Im 100% sure that weighing myself EVERY DAY is the right thing for me...

This week's weightloss was awesome - 2.1kg lighter. After a bad weigh-in the week before this was great. Id put in hard work and was happy what i had achieved. This figure bought my total weightloss to 4.6kg.

I know I should be happy with this. I know i should be as proud as punch but thats not how i feel. If i hadnt drank the other week or ate KFC because i was hung over then this number would be much more impressive. So, instead of looking at the total and being proud im disappointed that i havent lost more.

Im still obsessed with weighing myself numerous times a day and i think im in for another good week. I have definitely put in an effort this week! I can help it i have an obsessive personality.

I purchased Michelle Bridge's Crunchtime book yesterday. Tonight, im going to read it and have a good weekend of diet and exercise!!!

On the upside, im now under 100kg. Go me!!!!

So this week was a bit blah!

Bootcamp was so extremely hard on Wednesday that i was sore not only on Thursday but Friday too. This made me not work as hard on Friday. I was exhausted as i hadnt slept that well.My food intake was great so much so when i weighed myself since last week i had lost a substantial amount of weight.

Did you notice what i did there? Im making excuses and it has to stop.

SARAH - it has to stop!

At least im well aware these days which is a good thing.

This morning, i didnt eat. It did cross my mind that if i didnt eat at all i might lose more weight than if i did. I started to get grumpy and snappy. I didnt intend not to eat. Sometimes i dont get hungry and it causes me to forget to eat. Then before i know it half the day is gone. I did eat a very healthy dinner.

Right now i feel heavy. I dont feel skinner nor do i feel like ive lost weight today. I feel like i have put on weight. The ups and downs of an overweight woman. Up, down etc.

Tomorrow's promise is i need to remember to eat.

Yesterday, i posted my commitment on 12WBT forums and today im telling you:

***I commit to running in the 5.2km RUN FOR THE KIDS run on April 17 2011 and do everything in my power to do well in my eyes***

Now ive said it! You know it! Dont forget to keep me honest.

Next post wont be all over the place like this one - it must be the lack of food.
