My favourite time of the week is right now. 

Friday night - a whole weekend ahead of me! Hooray!  So the plans - well I need to find a new PT closer to home, so that is number 1 task this weekend.

We are also taking Duke to the beach this weekend for a walk so that should keep my exercise up but I really need that PT to push me that little bit harder.  I am my own worst enemy, I will go and exercise but there is no way I push myself as hard as as trainer will.

I can feel in myself my fitness has dropped a little so it is about time I get back into it.  Had my mini break which was stupid, I look back now and think really Angela, really you thought it was a good idea to have a mini break, when what is it, food and laziness when it comes to getting my butt off the couch.

I think I am going to have to plaster the house with pictures saying no or dont do it! 

Bloody hell how come it is not this hard to put the weight on! Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Anyway, enough pity party for me, ho hum to me!!!!

May the scales be ever kicking my arse.

Inspiration HELLO where are you

I am in need of some inspiration so I am hoping by writing on here, it will come to me as I delve into everything going on in my head at the moment.

So I have done the grocery shopping and I have organised the food for the week, so check that off the list.  So why then as I did the incredibly healthy grocery shopping this afternoon did I pop in mint slice biscuits.  Then when I got home and had all this incredibly beautiful healthy delicious food I chose to eat nearly the whole packer of mint slices. 

Why why why - laziness....... pure cravings.........  I have been whining I have wanted chocolate for weeks now. 

Well it is done now, and I must say they were delicious, but I must get back on the band wagon!  Breaky planned, snacks planned, lunches and dinners planned.

However, I still dont have the inspiration behind me, hmmmmm what will solve this.

I think I know I need another session with Emazon, there is a weekend course she holds and I think I need that to get my head back in the right space. 

Time to investigate when the next one is on.  I might have to spend my next lot of holidays exercising but it shall be worth it.

Anyway night for all - if you have any inspirational words for me - please share your tips on how you keep inspired and motivated.

May the scales be ever in your favour.

A plateau, a bad week!

Well a bad week for me this week, a loss of 200 grams and I can pin point why.
Why well it is me.  I have had a bad food week, I skipped breakfast, ate too much, ate wrong stuff and ate carbs after 5pm.
I have exercised but only walking the dog.
I dont know I hear all these people saying exercise is addictive, you will love it, you will find something you love.
Well I can tell you, I use to exercise 7 days a week, I use to train for district basketball, state country netball, I would then play indoor netball, basketball and anything else you can think of and even back then when I could outrun most - I HATED EXERCISE.  So I dont know now, that I have 50 kgs or so to go, that I will ever love exercise.  If I didnt back then, I doubt I will now! 
Dont get me wrong I know I have to do it, for my weight loss, my health and for when hub bub and I have kids so I am a good role model and I will do it but I can probably say, I will never ever learn to love exercise. 
I love the competition and I think thats why I am attracted to anything other than a boring old gym and doing the same thing day in day out.  I love the idea of a challenge, thats why I am attracted to warrior dash, tough mudder etc, I love the extreme.  I have no idea how people go to the gym and run on a treadmill for an hour, I would be bored insane in 10 minutes and looking for something else to do, my mind needs more stimulation than that.
Anyway off my bitch fest about exercise.
What am I going to do to put myself back on track.  Well I am going to have to get off my lazy arse and do it and organise myself with foods!
So I have printed my menu, printed the shopping list and here I come.
Back on the band wagon

Friday Friday Got to Pat Taj on Friday

Happy Friday everyone.
Well I am laid up at home in bed with the dreaded lurgy which is doing the rounds in the office.  Blah. 
I am sitting here with little Duke who needs a walk by my lovely hubbub may have to do that when he gets home. 
So tell me, what are your home remedies for the cold?  At the moment I am drinking chlorophyll in water and also have some vital greens to have with my OJ.  Would love to hear other peoples remedies.  Anything really as I cannot afford to be sick. 
So Tuesday I am doing an online order for this weeks food, I have to be back on the nutrition band wagon. 
Have a good weekend, yah long weekend.
May the scales be ever in your favour.

A welcome addition

Welcome to Duke!
Hubby and I visited the local council pound last weekend and fell in love with this little gentleman.
He is a 6 month old wire haired jack russell.
He is very active so will be amazing for my exercise regime.
The cats are still a little hesitant and he has coped a couple of whacks from Taj but he is happily trotting around looking at his new home!

Sparkle On

Just looking to motivate myself for the early morning tomorrow.  Sparkle sparkle!

Friday Evening - Brrrrr its cold out there

Brrrrrr its cold out there!
How do you keep motivated to exercise in this weather?  Well ask me tomorrow morning, I have a 7.15am training session down at Miami.  I may be a little cranky when that alarm goes off tomorrow.  I need to apologise to my hub bub in advance.
After a couple of weeks not exercising it is time to suck it up, get back on the wagon and I have a bio scan tomorrow, shall post my results when I get home tomorrow.

I have found a chef who sends me a recipe a week who I lovvvvvvvvvveee.  Teresa Cutter - the Healthy Chef - she is amazing .  The one that come through today, pancakes with orange blossom honey.  Seriously cannot wait to try it!

Well time for me to sign off, put dinner on, hubby will be home soon and he is feeling off colour so going to send him to bed and nurse him back to health.

Talk tomorrow.
