On we go...

I'm having one of those weeks this week. Xavier is getting his molars, so it's been no sleep, temperatures, gunk coming from ears and nose, and this morning, the worst poos ever. Have you seen the ad on TV for number 3's? Thats my dining roon today. I've scrubbed and scrubbed, and antisepticed everything, and I can still smell it. Needless to say, I'm off to the doctors with him today, just to check there is nothing else going on.

Anyway, thats my whinge. no great changes in weight for me, I've been too tired/busy to focus on it. But I know I need to track, even when life is yucky, so I've pulled up the tracker, and am being a good girl.

At least, until the internet drops out again. :P

Back in the right direction.

So I just have to keep it going!

Pre-tracking is working well for me, I'm tracking my entire day at the beginning of the day, and then sticking to it. I know I don't have room to justify things this way! And down 0.7kg, on a week where I have been sick all week, and ttom, I'm happy with that. :)

Onwards we go!

It's February already?!

I honestly don't know what happened to January. It seems to have been lost in a black hole. Unfortunately, there must have been food in the hole, as I seem to have found some extra kilos, but I am back in control, and moving them off again.

Actually, I do know what happened to January, it was highly populated! 4 new baby's have arrived in the lives of those around me, and I'm been clucking so loudly I'm sure you have all been wanting chicken for dinner...

I am feeling the pressure from Duane for another child very strongly, and have been rather sad about the fact that we can't yet (we still need to finish the list of things needed to be in place beforehand), but am trying to funnel that into getting those things done. Like getting my weight down as much as I can. I've started looking for a wheelchair friendly car, so that I may actually be able to get out a bit. I need to look into the cost of a carer, and Xavier still hasn't been accepted into childcare, but if I keep focused, I won't lose the plot. Well, not too much. :)

I'm just rambling, but it is good to ramble. I've adjusted my goals out a little, and I am determined to not compromise myself or my health. This is a bit deal, and I am making it a priority!

I hope you had a great January ( I had a wonderful time with all the baby cuddles... oh so many babies... so CUTE!) and that February is as sweet as it is short.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

It's just a quick post from me, I have had an army of people at my house for the last 10 days, and it has been fantastic, but I am completely exhasted!

I haven't given a thought to WW, but I also haven't been silly, and I'm delighted to be sporting a great loss over christmas, and I am hopefull that it will still be there when I go to my meeting on Saturday. Either way, 2010 will see a trim little RaeRae before we start trying for another child. Hopefully next NYE I'll be sharing pregnancy news!

Have a wonderful last day of 2010!

On the mend :)

I'm finally feeling a bit more alive, so am pulling myself back onto the wagon, and plan to be on track for my 50's challenge, I've only go to get 0.2 off in the next two weeks to be on track. That is achievable, even with Christmas looming!

I'm still very sore and exhausted from surgery on Wednesday, but my ankle has settled enough to let me off the crutches (still painful, but I can walk straight on it, which is what I need to do for my hips), so I am happy about that at least. Unfortunately the surgery didn't go as well as hoped, but I've had my few days moping about that, and I'm just going to keep on going now. :)

My aims this week are:

combat negative thoughts - whenever I catch myself getting negative or down, write it down and turn it to a positive.
No exercise - need to heal
Therefore, I need to be perfect with my tracking.

Well we have our church Christmas event on this afternoon, and I singing in the choir (hopefully, providing I can stand that long) and then face painting the kiddlywinks. So I should get myself on the move!

I hope you are all enjoying beautiful summer weather,
Rae :)

It's been one of those weeks...

Well I can't say I'm the happiest of chookens. It's been a shocker of a week. I'm back on crutches, because Duane accidentally knocked a large heavy box onto my ankle, which I then hobbled around one, and subsequently put my hips out very shortly after. Then on Saturday, my gorgeous 3yr old cat Sora sickened and died overnight, we think she may have been bitten by a spider or something, we have no other explanation. Then a lovely lady from church that I have know for years, has become a widow with 4 young children, when her husband died of a heart attack on Sunday at the age of 38. So we are ALL cut up about that. Throw in a shop audit on Thursday, and surgery tomorrow, and I'm well beyond stressed and grumpy and teary, into the world of just plain BLURGH.

*big breath* Sorry about the rant. It's been an awful week. I didn't get to WI on Saturday, as I was bawling my eyes out as the cat was buried. I think I may have put on about 0.5kg, (also TTOM - just for laughs) but I am just going to leave it blank, and record my weight on Saturday. At least with surgery tomorrow I am not allowed to eat anything all day, maybe that will shrink my appetite back to more sensible proportions!

Doing the Happy Dance on the scales this week!

I'm So excited today! I weighed in at my meeting, and I've lost a WHOLE KILO! That is unheard of for me! WOOOOHOOOO!

Only 4 weeks until Christmas, and I'm feeling great. I can't wait to have my family over, and friends that I haven't seen for a while. We will be getting family photos done (Dad has already given me advance warning, I should probably book haircuts now actually!) and they will be my first family photos at a healthy weight. Well, there may have been a kindda healthy one at age 12.

Speaking of which, I currently weigh the same as what I did when I was 13. How scary is that?!

In honour of my sudden desire for Christmas to be here, I've put up some of my scrapbook pages from Xavier's first Christmas. He has discovered the joy of presents recently, so it should be really exciting this year! I have also bought some cheap little disney books that we can wrap up and give to his friends, because that is a far more important that I want him to learn, the joy of giving. :)

Well I have a dessert to make and its even WW friendly. I'm making Apple and Berry Crumble to take to a BBQ tonight, so I know that I'll have something non-dairy to eat, that also won't burst my tracking streak. I haven't had a single point out of place for two weeks. And I'm happy to keep it that way!

I hope you are all having a WONDERFUL weekend!

I have a healthy BMI!! WOOT! WWGW of 65kgs acheived Sept 2009.

On the way to the 50's...
