300 grams and 3 sleeps to go

Weighed in this morning at 90.3kg. 90 bloody point 3! So close to my goal of 90 but more importantly under 200 pounds. Yay for me and yay for my car as it gets a clean courtesy of D.

I think I handled Sunday quite well - I popped out into the garden for a few hours before and after lunch and managed to resist shoving my face into the bowl of onion dip. It helped that I had / have a throbbing tooth ache. Going to the murder house this afternoon to see if anything can be done before we go on holiday.

Only 3 sleeps to go until we fly out. Am really looking forward to it and am even looking forward to doing a bit of clothes shopping in Vegas (which I normally hate). The range is far greater in the States compared to here in New Zealand and the exchange rate is pretty good at the moment so I'm planning to make the effort to try stuff on that I wouldn't normally think would suit me...just in case it does!

That wasn't exercise, it was fun!

Been a while since I had a moment to sit and actually type a decent post but I've been saving mental notes along the way.

Work has been hectic. I was babysitting some consultants for a week which meant I didn’t get much of my own work done and certainly didn’t have time to track, let along blog. And we all know what happens when you don’t track! I didn’t go nuts but I know I consumed too much salt and I certainly drank too much wine over the weekend that followed. Gained a pound and I’m bloody grateful it wasn’t more.

So this week has been better and as King Julian would say my mantra has been “I like to move it, move it”...


  • Sunday – 6km hard bike ride along a rough trail
  • Monday – 3km walk
  • Tuesday – 3 km fast walk (trying to keep up with 9 y/o on a bike!)
  • Wednesday – 3km easy bike ride + an hour in the garden at night The ride was especially cool because this was the same route of my first few rides that I had huffed and puffed around and yet this time it was EASY!
  • Thursday – 4.5km walk
  • Friday - 4.5km walk
  • Today – housework, housework, housework
Tomorrow our house will be full of boys men watching Bathurst (V8 endurance race) all day with junk food spread across the coffee table. While I enjoy the racing I don't plan on sitting around stuffing my face and undoing all this hard work in a single day. Monday is my last weigh in before our holiday. Gonna make it count :).

Stage 2 of the nominees for the Versatile Blogger Award are...

I warned you that these would be coming in stages :)
  • Weigh Down
    Debbie has received oodles of awards already (and rightly so). She works super hard, posts her food journal regularly and moves her arse – a great inspiration!
  • Smaller Fun Pants
    I’ll admit that it was the name of the blog that initially drew me in but it’s the light bulb moments that keep me going back :)
  • Real Fat
    Keelie is the same height as me (which helps me relate to the weight goals) and is absolutely gorgeous – just like her blog!
Check out my earlier post for details on what the Versatile Blogger Award means (thanks again Diane!).
