Don't eat your stress!

Thursday, February 19, 2015      4 comments

Just needed to remind myself of that. My husband was a contract haul truck driver for an iron ore mine. The key word in that sentence is 'was'. Unfortunately there are cuts being made so he was one of them. We are now deciding what to do. Hopefu... Read more

Photo Contest

Thursday, February 12, 2015      3 comments

Thank you for the likes on my photo :-) I sent in this photo, which I've been told by a reptile expert is actually a legless lizard not a snake, thinking it wouldn't be chosen since there are some amazing photographers around here. This me... Read more

January has went quite well aside from the scale. I reached my goal of running three days a week and doing half hour circuits three days a week. I am taking progress photos tomorrow but friends have said I look smaller and my clothes are a littl... Read more

Gili Islands

Wednesday, January 28, 2015      3 comments

Very excited that in mid June my husband and I will be heading to the Gili Islands for two weeks. I'm sure there will be lots of snorkelling, relaxing, and going to the beach but I'm also going to be doing some volunteering. Since cars aren't al... Read more

Photos from my Sunday morning hike

Sunday, January 25, 2015      7 comments

For the last four weeks I've been hiking with my dog Lucky. We've been doing around 2 hours each week. Unfortunately my other dog Mack is getting too arthritic so he doesn't get to come, but Lucky loves it. Today we hiked up a large hill a... Read more

Sticking to it

Saturday, January 10, 2015      4 comments

After being on Sparkpeople since 2011 I've noticed lots of my long term spark friends are hitting the restart button as often as I am. Sometimes I find it a little depressing that all of us are still struggling with a healthy lifestyle every day... Read more

Happy New Year!

Thursday, January 01, 2015      3 comments

I started 2015 spending an entire day doing absolutely nothing. That was the plan after going out on NYE so I'm not concerned about such a lazy start to the year! I'm back on track with eating today and will be working out after work this aftern... Read more

On a plateau

Sunday, December 07, 2014      4 comments

I have been stuck at the same weight (83kg-83.5kg) for 2 and 1/2 weeks now. I ate at the low end of my range last week and saw no progress and this week I've been at the higher end of my range and still no progress. I have been working out 1-2 t... Read more

Well I've been a little off track since the weekend. I went out Saturday night but did plan for that an didn't eat much during the day. I'm sure it didn't compensate for all the alcohol calories but I did a lot of dancing and walked my friend ho... Read more

Calorie Cycling

Wednesday, October 15, 2014      3 comments

I'm ecstatic! 2.5kg lost already this month. That's 5.5lbs. And that also means 4.5kg lost since mid-Sept. I'm not quite sure what clicked but it has. I have spent the last two weeks eating between 1000-1300calories. This is probably going to be... Read more

I love being fit enough that I can do this sort of thing without even worrying if I'm fit enough: ... Read more

On track :-)

Friday, October 10, 2014      5 comments

Pretty excited to see the scale go from 85.5 to 83.3 in just a couple of weeks! I am probably eating slightly less than I should but I'm still hoping to get to my dietbet weight by Monday (82.8) so I'll just keep at 1200-1400 a day until then. I... Read more

I decided I need some added motivation so I've joined dietbet. The bet is to lose 4% in 4 weeks. I am hoping this will kickstart things downwards. For me this means losing 3.4kg. So hopefully I'll start being a bit more serious about this or for... Read more

Progress report

Monday, September 08, 2014      1 comments

This weekend was a bit of a challenge for my goals. I drove 3 hours on dirt roads to a rodeo and worked as the vet. Thankfully I didn't have to actually need to do anything. Unfortunately there were not many good food choices. Also there was no ... Read more
