Let the Christmas celebrations begin

Why does Christmas have to include masses of food celebrations. I mean really, aside from the gift giving aspect of Christmas, the only other thing I can really see happening is eating – eating lots and lots of food (of course, this eating is normally done with loved ones, but it’s still all about the […]

A loss… and a win (or two)

Tuesdays are supposed to be my super smash it day, the theory being that I get up first thing in the morning and go for a swim, do my 40 laps and then have a nice relaxing spa for ten minutes before heading home to start the day, whereupon I finish work and head back […]

Yummy ugly balls

Our weekly surprise for 12WBT is to create a snack. The rules were that we had to only have 5 ingredients and be quick to make. Well these technically don’t qualify because they have 10 ingredients and are not super quick to make, but I love these. They came about by a bit of an […]

Some interesting food facts

Today’s daily food intake… I did a little googling out of interest today to see just how many calories are in McDonalds food, because lately I’ve been having the biggest craving for a Triple Cheeseburger. Not just an ordinary cheeseburger but a triple cheeseburger. Ohh the gooey cheesy melting goodness and the extreme greasiness of […]

12WBT pre-season task #6 – Kitchen makeover

So my task for pre-season task #6 – Kitchen makeover was to empty out my kitchen cupboards and the fridge of all my junk food and processed food. Food that I wouldn’t and couldn’t be eating on the 12WBT. Things like chips, chocolate biscuits, biscuits in general, juices and cordials and food that is just […]

Terrible munchies

Today’s daily food intake… Weigh in day Previous weight: 104.6kg. Today’s weight: 103.4kg. 1.2kg loss Ack, today I have had the worst munchies. I have been craving salt all day long. I’m putting it down to having popcorn over the last couple of days, which I easily get addicted to. I don’t normally go for […]

Bookish goodness

Today’s daily food intake… A couple of weeks ago I was watching the morning news when they had an interview with a lady called Ruth Field who had written a book called Run Fat B!tch Run. It was only a very brief interview and they didn’t really ask her any questions of great importance, in […]

Uneventful isn’t a bad thing

Today’s daily food intake… Had quite the uneventful day today. Nothing exciting, nothing earth shattering, nothing at all really. Which isn’t to say that’s a bad thing. Sometimes uneventful, plain days are a good thing. No stress, no crap, just a good old fashioned take it easy kind of day. so that was today. Went […]

Loss and still eating crap

Today’s daily food intake… Weigh in day Previous weight: 109.1kg. Today’s weight: 106.8kg. 2.3kg loss Arghhh when will I learn? I got on the scales this morning and yay me, lost 2.3kg which was surprising considering my blow-out of a weekend and I was pretty super pleased about that. I’ve decided that rather than having […]

Eating out is not eating smart

Today’s daily food intake… The last few days haven’t been the best for me. We went over our download limit for the month (thanks to some Skyping and Zumba downloading…) so I didn’t have any internet at home. I could plug my phone in and tether it to use some of my phone’s download limit, […]

Started with a loss, ended with an aha moment

Today’s daily food intake… Weigh in day Previous weight: 111.1kg. Today’s weight: 109.1kg. 2.0kg loss I’ve learned a few of things today. The first is that even though you might be hungry at breakfast time, don’t go overboard. Perhaps the cheese and Vegemite and butter was overdoing it. A little. The second is that I […]

12wbt day sixty four – I’m still alive

It’s true everyone, I am still alive and I am still eating healthy (mostly). Actually that’s a bit of a lie. I’ve not had the best week. I got another dose of the flu last week, and I tried to make the right decisions food wise, but I don’t think I really did. There was […]

12WBT day thirty five – Feels like starting again

After being on holidays and then being sick all last week, today felt like I was starting the 12 week challenge all over again. Back were the hunger pains, back was my continuous thinking about food and back was my obsessing about food and exercise. The weird thing is, while I was away on holidays […]

12WBT day thirty four – I had a burger today

Oh yes, it’s true everyone, today I had a burger. Once again we were out and about at lunch time, so we stopped in at a pub that we haven’t been to for a long time, and had a pub lunch, which for me consisted of Burger and chips (it also came with a beer, […]

12WBT days twenty five to twenty eight – Feeling like a failure

I have so many mixed emotions going on in my head right now I don’t know if I’m coming or going. I haven’t blogged for the last few days, because there wasn’t any point. I wasn’t going to be able to write how I had gotten in some great exercise, or how I had eaten […]

Well how is everyone, I feel as if a part of my life has been missing over the last few days without my daily blogging and my daily intakes being written down. I’ve been off having a lovely time camping and spending time with my family during the school holidays. I would like to say […]

12WBT day thirteen – crap day, very unhappy with myself

Today we had a family day. When I say family day, I mean Mick, myself and Brodie go out and do something. We only get Brodie to stay with us every six months and only for a couple of weeks during school holidays, so the time that we have together is always very special. When […]

12WBT day twelve – Quite sore tonight

Had a great day, quite high in the calorie intake, but struggling already with Brodie being here and having an extra (and young) person to cook for and making sure that she gets all her daily requirements, while still trying to stay within my calorie range. We had a really big bike ride planned for […]
