Mmmm, what to blog?

Mmmmm, what to blog?  You will recall that at start of New Year I decided to get back on track with my eating and exercise, shed the 3.6kg that I gained and try to loose a bit more....

I woke on the Monday morning enthusiastic for the week, got ready for the first zumba class of 2015 which I might add I was really looking forward to after a few weeks of no exercise.... went for a quick pee before leaving and somehow pulled my back getting of the loo......argh!  Hence there has been no zumba or netball for me in the last 2 weeks - chiropractor visits instead!!!!  Am hoping to get back to class tomorrow.

I've been good with my foods though, and have managed to cut out some of the carbs I had started eating again.  I bought one of those spiral thingy machines?!?!  to make zoodles... which are zuccini noodles or for my UK friends courgette noodles - so have been having them instead of spaghetti or noodles and as a nice veg alternative.  Also, have got back into the habit of making cauliflower rice for myself instead of the basmati..... and lots of fish for my protein.....  weigh-in Friday this week: 77.6kg, a loss of 1.2kg (2.6lb) in the last fortnight - slow but steady.

Feeling a  bit like i work in hospitality.... seem to be running a hotel for steady stream of sleepovers during these long Summer holidays, and should invest in a black cap to wear whilst driving kids all over the place - as long as they are happy.... I guess!!

Another couple of weeks and the kids are back to school, and my working hours will increase from 3 days to 4 days - not sure how I feel about that as I quite enjoy my 2 days off and they are the 2 mornings that I defo make zumba, I guess I'll have to try and make another evening class instead.  The studio that I go to are running an introductory hip-hop class - quite fancy giving it a try - Do you think I'm too old??

Am loving Perth weather right now, endless days of sunshine which is awesome although had some terrible bush fires last week.  Fortunately we were not affected, but many of my friends were on alert to evacuate - very scary.  The Firemen/woman do an awesome job.

My goal for the week is to loose a minimum of 0.5kg - lets see if I can make it.  Hope you are all well...x

2015 - HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Happy New Year to you all - here's hoping that we all have a good one!

Not much to report, had a nice Xmas with friends and a quiet NY, Holly was working until 8pm so needed picking up, so we had a family evening with a take-away and game of Cluedo...!  Rich wasn't impressed - but Harvey thought it was fab lol!!

So wait for NY weigh-in....this morning...... 78.8kg (12.4lb) not good, but could be worse.... I guess?!?!?  So I'm up 3.8kg (8.4lb) from my lowest weight to date....  This time last year I weighed 81kg, so am a couple of kilo's lighter than then.... not sure if that is good or bad!?!  So my goal is to definitely to loose the 3.8kg that I re-gained..... and hopefully get to my ultimate goal of 70kg -  if I can't get there then I want to get back to 75kg and maintain......

Nikki in UK if you are reading, you are looking absolutely fantastic - you will be my new inspiration!

Anyway, love to you all
