Welcoming a Happy, Healthy 2012!

LOL, looks like I’m taking the kilo I added over Christmas into the New Year with me! Could have been worse, like last year, and it could have been 3 kilos :P.
Hoping everyone has a positive year in 2012 and more successes than non successes!
Remember, every gram you put on today/tonight will be last year’s weight problem after midnight so we can all start anew tomorrow morning with no regrets :D.
Cheers,
Robyn

Merry Christmas?

LOL, or should I say HO HO HO!

I'll start dieting (again) tomorrow :D. I've gained a kilo to 68.5 and most of my family/friends have all kindly (?) gifted me with chocolates and wine?!
Duh....I sew, make cards and scrapbook so they could have given me non-fattening gifts to do with any of these. I think I'll have to start a Dieter's Gift List to send to them as a start to the New Year. Even a reel of sewing thread would have been a more appropriate gift while I'm trying to lose weight, and a lot cheaper because after all it's the thought that counts not the cost.
Hmmm, maybe they are hoping I'll regift back to them? Nah, I'll just consume the gifts over an extended period and exercise more :).

I'll be back in the New Year and wishing you all low kilojoule, fat free Christmases and New Year celebrations. (We can always wish, hey!!)

Cheers (hic),
Robyn

Starts and Stops

Well with the rain, a Christmas party and a too tempting supper at the Bingo I didn't lose any weight this week. However, I didn't gain any either so I do have something to be positive about. I've walked 5 days out of 8 this week so that may have something to do with it. I don't think I'll be down to 64kg by Christmas but I can be closer to it
Cheers,
Robyn

Summer Rainy Days

I slipped a bit this week with all the rain. Went shopping and decided it was a good time for a ‘free’ day so no fat/kj counting. Not a good idea as with the 4 rainy days….and I mean all day each day…. I couldn’t take my walks. I’m thinking I overdid it with the fats and sugars on shopping day but I didn’t bother to check back on the kj’s as regret is not conducive to further weight loss and is not useful to forward progression.
On the positive side I still lost half a kilo so I’m thinking I may be able to drop the other half still there by losing bout 1 1/4kg a week for the next 2 weeks to still achieve my 64kg goal by Christmas.
Lol, no ‘free’ days this week, or maybe next week, as I want 2 consecutive free days for my birthday and Christmas day. A couple of extra ‘laps’ around the paddock each exercise time won’t hurt either so any indulgences won’t have time to settle anywhere!
Over this time of year the choice is willpower and abstinence or more exercise. I choose exercise as often it’s easier than disappointing yourself and someone else by saying “No” to their delicious culinary creation they’ve spent time preparing.
Cheers,
Robyn
