End of birthday month – start of kick arse March

It was about this time last year that I stopped posting, stopping tracking, stopped properly caring about me (until June). I put 10 pounds back on and didn’t think twice about it. My birthday is in the first week of February and this used to be the beginning of a couple of binge weeks that extended into larger portion sizes overall. Not this year. Even though I haven’t posted (or tracked much if I’m honest) I have been checking in with the scales and not going nuts. I’ve come too far to let the weight come back now. I had a big clear out of my wardrobe last week and donated all my fat clothes to charity – I can’t put weight back on cause I’d have nothing to wear to work and no one needs to see me walk the halls naked!

I’m aiming to loose another 3kg by Easter Friday (8 weeks). I’m trying to set realistic, achievable goals and then maintain that weight. Activity wise, I’ve been slack with the cardio but busting out the muscles by moving rocks in the garden and shovelling dirt until the cows come home. I’m signed up to do the annual Round the Bays in 2 weeks time – a good kick start to walking regularly again.

Lastly, New Zealand is mourning after last weeks Christchurch earthquake. My friends all made it out safely but there are many families missing loved ones. It’s an emotional time. There are some fantastic stories of kindness and neighbour helping neighbour, I’m so proud to be a New Zealander. Kia kaha.
