  • You're also a lot more active than me, so I guess you burn it off a lot faster. I probably have 40kg to get rid of.
    I prob have done 16ks today. up and down the beach 2x with the dog, which is 5k all up. plus the 6.2k block on my own and I swum around in the bay in my bikini for about 30 mins. I would maybe drop another 2 or 3kgs but I would be verging on very scrawny then.

    LL are you back for a visit or for good?

      Not back in NZ, just back to Brunei after our three week holiday. School goes back in the morning, which should be interesting given that I can't get the kids to go to sleep and it's nearly 9pm, we all slept until 10.30am today. They'll be going to school regardless, I need some time away from them before I go mad.

      Well day one of whole 30 is nearly done and dusted. IF until 3pm, two boiled eggs as a snack, then roast chicken and salad followed by banana and blueberry 'monkey salad'. No wine, just white tea, coffee with coconut cream, and coconut water or water.

      Night all.

      • Hope the Whole30 goes well Lizzie.
        Way to go Gwamma - stay away from the drama too

        I'm been up since 5:25 this morning, thanks to a catfight waking my 2 doggies up. We watched the sunrise together. Just signed up for the febfest 28min per day walking challenge with The Women's Walking Project Group on Facebook (not a challenge really, but it does make me accountable). They also do the Oxfam 100km challenge every April, and are planning a walk of the North Island in 2015. The Women's Walking Project | Empowering our communities by empowering its women.

        Sunny here today, then back to rain for the rest of the week

        Have a great day y'all

          • you know G all I really do is walk around lots and I only seriously weight train for an hour a week. I do do things like throw the barbell around at home and I sometimes wear the 10kg weight vest when I walk but I am not consistent with it. the muscle definition is absolutely definitely from the gym. all one hour a week of it. and that is my personal trainer's fault. so basically what I do is maintainable and achievable.

            I've been up half the night. the dog has been whining and whittering at the door. so I let him out for a pee and he sees the horse, who was in the front yard. tries to bail the horse for fun. forgets to pee. vicious circle all night. he is worse than a baby some days! we did the beach first thing and encountered two very awake sealions. it was high tide so we did a trip up the bank and around and the other one we had to double back a couple of times to make up the distance. the dog doesn't try to bail them up and leaves them alone so they are more of an irritation.

            • Those sealions can be quite the nasty things !!!!!!!!! Your muscle definition is amazing, and dont sell yourself short. Seas. You work hard, and you deserve every success.
              I would love it if you ever found the name of a good PT in chch. I am so gonna do some major revamping this year.
              Reading through this accidentally overweight book, i am thinking i have a few wee issues to fix, and I'm not even half way through the book!!!!!!!
              One of my biggest issues is feeling guilty. I feel guilt all the time, even thou i haven't done anything wrong. I think this is from years of being blamed for the weather, or the worker ruining something on the farm, or the kids doing something they shouldn't have done. The punishment often doesn't fit the crime!!!! So i need to learn to not be the first to think, OMG was it me???? No of course it wasn't, but i still think i must have had something to do with it. Internalising these things a happy girl does not make !!!!!!!
              Anyhoo I will chip away, and hope this helps with my weight loss as well?????? We shall see

                yeah I got sick of dealing with that. no matter what you did, no matter how hard you tried to appease them and make everything right so they had no stress, something random would always happen like the weather. He would also forever run me down. I was never good enough whatever I did. and anything I tried to do for myself was always belittled. I was prob 4 kg lighter than I am now and he used to tell me the gym didn't work, I needed to tone up, how i'd let myself go etc. constantly. forever criticised that I didn't eat junk food or drink lots. like how the f* can you expect someone to sit on their ass, eat total crap, piss it up and stay stick thin, healthy and ageless? fortunately for me, I self medicate with exercise so I never got sucked in by but I did have to be careful. only go to women's gyms or gyms with a women's only area. I'd never have gotten away with a male PT unless he was openly gay. And you know it prob isn't guilt, it's more like panic or stress that it will all start again.

                  Me three! Although DH is generally not too bad, he has a really bad habit of blaming me for stuff the kids get up to, I think he likes to be able to lay the blame somewhere. For example, DS scratched his cousin badly at the pool, but it was my fault for not cutting his nails recently. Last night DS wouldn't/couldn't sleep and it was my fault for letting them sleep too late yesturday morning. I've started stopping DH in his tracks and telling him not to make the problem about me, I've been doing this lots recently but he still hasn't realised there is a theme. Last night he just kept lecturing me about how I messed up DS's sleep cycle.............it's jet lag, not my problem, but DH wants someone to blame all the time. Men are so frustrating.

                  Struggling to fill up this morning. I went to the gym and did my 5.5km (had to do an extra 500m while I waited for the lady I'm avoiding to leave!), then came home to my usual bacon vege omelette minus the cheese with homemade salsa to make up for the lack of cheese. Also a big glass of coconut water. But I'm still feeling like I want more, I wonder if it's the lack of milky goodness in my morning latte? It's going to be long day at this rate.

                      Which is why I got stuck on the treadmill this morning, trying avoid contact with a 'very annoying woman'. Said woman was my friend when she arrived in Brunei, but has quickly dumped me for other 'cooler' people in order to social climb. Wasted my time there so i intend to avoid her as much as possible. I have genuine friends so don't need her anyhow!

                      Still hungry after lunch and keep finding myself randomly wandering into the kitchen. Used my shiny new kitchenaid to make two batches of cookies (didn't even lick my fingers my commitment is so strong) and some fruit ice blocks for the kids.

                      It's only 1.30pm and a long way until dinner time. Must go and read up on the whole30 rules about snacking.......

                      • Gwamma, Seaweed and LL - I understand totally where you are coming from. My ex was the same. Looking back, I was so slim but he made me feel like I was a fat giant, even though I did jazzercise x3 weekly and walked a lot. DD1 has been married (and now separated) from someone who has chronic depression for over 1/2 his life and blames everyone but himself for anything that happens to him. Five attempts at suicide last year were also her fault ... turns out he wanted out of the marriage to be with someone else and didn't have the balls to tell her what was going on. Yes, some women can be like that (playing the victim) but it's more likely to be men that do it.

                        I'm not sure what is happening to my brain - not only am I planning to do the 5km Colour Run .... I can't run; some days I can hardly walk, with the pain..... I am also planning to run the King of the Hill 5km up and over the Wainuiomata Hill at Queens birthday Weekend!!! It's where the local All Blacks did their training. I've lived in Wainui for the past 3 years and keep saying I want to walk it from end to end one day but didn't realise it would be soon. Anyway, it's all good and I will achieve these goals.

                        • hopefully your dd can rise above it all Maz. it still does my head in and i am 4 years gone. it is getting better but silly little things just trigger it all again. you know i have always said if you sit on your ass, your body will grow roots and you will vegetate so good on you. maybe get into the gelatin and sodium ascorbate for your joints and make sure you do keep your carbs up if you are doing that much exercise.

                          • I get the sodium ascorbate part, how does the gelatin fit in with this?

                            Comment


                            • your body uses gelatin and vit C to make collagen. plus whatever your joints move on. that is my theory and i am sticking to it. i take it for wrinkles coz i am vain but my back stopped clicking and my hip stopped hurting as well. you can do bone broth in soups etc too.

                                Have you tried C25 K? I did this about three years ago, when I was rather overweight and had never run in my life (other than at school), now I can easily run 5km and sometimes do up to 7.5km if I have the motivation. You are right that it is 90% mind games when it comes to fitness. I also have chronic pain and this totally messes with my fitness, every specialist and Dr advises me against running, but it is the best way I can find to keep fit. Good luck!
