[a weight loss story]

*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*


Weigh In

Yep, I did it. Woohoo! Go me! I'm in awe of my awesome weight lossing powers. It's been back to basics this week - a buttload of exercise plus sticking rigidly to my 1500 calorie limit. I'd planned to have chicken sausages for dinner the other night then realised it would put me right over my calories so cooked a couple of eggs instead. I've said no to the chocolate mini muffins with my morning coffee. I've stuck to salads and soups with a decent portion of protein for lunch. And has it been hard - hell no.
My motto for the week was STOP DICKING AROUND and it worked. So many of those extras you don't even miss and they make a huge difference at the end of the week.
Now my goal for this week is to STAY at goal. No pigging out this weekend in Sydney - I know my sis has a big brunch planned for tomorrow and she loves eating out - but I don't want to start thinking I'm going to burn it off in the City 2 Surf and go overboard.
The bad news is that my body is falling apart atm. I've got sniffles and have busted my legs. I think the run I did on Monday did some damage - I didn't think until later that I should have avoided the concrete bike paths!
I had a massage last night which helped heaps and she told me not to run until Sunday but walking and swimming will help. At least there is no inflammation, which is a good sign. I plan to rest up and lather on the decorub, hit the echinachea and cold tablets and get my exercise in the form of shopping!
This will prolly be my last post until I get home from Sydney so expect a big one. I think I've remembered to pack everything. The lovely Superstar has tagged me so I'll post that when I get home.
Now I have to go cook breakfast. My sister is dragging her chronically fatigued body out of bed to drive me to the airport so I offered to make this for our special breakkie treat. Plus I want to get to the airport early - with all the scary news about terrorists being caught in England (thank god they were caught is all I can say), I reckon the airport security will be insane today.

YAY for you Kathryn, congrats on reaching goal :)!!
Good luck for your run in Sydney and make sure you have a blast of a time!!

Sen-bloody-sational!! You rock!

What a long way you have come. It seriously is amazing what people can do when they "stop dicking around", I am going to take this on as my motto.

I had lots of reasons to not walk today, but now you've given me the foot up the bum to get out there. And you've also given me an excellent breakkie idea - I actually have all the ingredients already!

Have a great day.
