Another week has passed – and I have not stayed on track. The daily three hour drive to and from work has taken its toll on me – I think worsened because I know that I now have only four more days and then its over. Motivation is nowhere to be found!
On a brighter note, in just over one week I will be accompanying my daughter to National Athletics in Townsville – we have not been to Townsville before so we are looking forward to the adventure.
This week, I have three things that I WANT to achieve, to be in the right head space for work, to be on top of house work etc so that we can leave for Townsville knowing everything is under control at home and thirdly, but most importantly, eat clean, drink plenty of water and MOVE!!!
The recent rain has bought us some much needed relief, with next to no water in the creeks and little feed for our horses, things were looking a bit dire. But now I am right to head north!!! And can’t wait.
Today I also have three tasks on the ‘must do’ list – cook my mum’s Christmas Fruit Cake, catch of on the 12wbt forums and do my ‘SSS’ – yes I know its a day late, but better late than never!
So here’s to the coming week!
Weigh in Wednesday results in a loss of 400grams. My feelings to the loss are somewhat mixed. obviously I was hoping for significantly more. As a result, I am attempting to increase my water intake to hit the 2 litres per day and to be more consistent in maintaining my food diary. I have stuck to the 12wbt meal plan and I have exercised each day – since Monday. Have to say, though, cant wait for the weekend to have a sleep in!
Just how busy was late last week and the weekend – with the passing of my husband’s grandmother, I took this photo of the sunrise on the day of her funeral. We then went to Sydney to visit our son, who is nearing the end of his first year at university. We arrived back home in the early hours of Sunday morning, I cooked my grandmother’s Christmas Cake on Sunday afternoon and perused the menu for this week.
I made time to map out my week and decided on what meal to have. Busy week ahead, as usual, and time to knuckle down.
Hope everyone had a good weekend.
Mixed week, this week! Still travelling away with work, my son has uni exams, my daughter’s sport related injury is no better and my husband’s grandmother died.
The positive to this early part of the week has been that I have modified my eating habits and each lunchbreak, I have gone for a brisk walk!
I always feel better when I do this!
Wow, what a strange couple of days have just gone by. Hubby’s truck breaks down, then miraculously works again, my daughter is unusually ill, then is fine about three hours later and me. . . . well I just keep plugging along!
This weekend has been a bit of a waste really – still no washing done – limited water – no rain for ages, looks like a long hot summer, have caught up on social media stuff and spoke via phone to my 19yo son last night – all is going well with him.
SO its time to knuckle down and plan my next 13 weeks – the diary will be out today and I will be writing down my exercise schedule - I have found this to be extremely beneficial during previous rounds of 12WBT.
Hope all enjoy their Sunday!
