12WBT Update

So I thought I'd do a bit of an update as we're now in week 3. The food is delish! Like really really YUM. Not just that, but really easy to prepare and cook. Admittedly, I have had a few bad food choices and at the party on Friday night I did drink one or two(or four) glasses of Jacob's Creek Sparkling Moscato.

The part that I'm struggling with is the exercise. I'm really really finding it hard to get out there and do it. I know I'm making excuses, but I'm struggling to pull out my 'just fucking do it' card. It's going to change though because I'm going to just have to pull some motivation from somewhere. This week I'm going to my first pole dancing class with 3 women from work. It's going to be a lot of fun and I hope that it's going to be a great workout too. This is really embarrassing but I'm quietly freaking out that I'm not going to be strong enough to carry my own weight on the pole. Buuuut, if I can manage then I think I might sign up for the beginner course. We'll see. Stay tuned.

I forgot to get on and mention how much I lost last week(at least I think I did? Shit I can't remember what I had for breakfast the day before most days!). Well I was 1.6kg down. I honestly am not expecting any kind of loss this week though, we shall see I suppose....I'm being a bit blase about it all but deep down I am crapping myself! Haha.

By the way, Skinny Cow Coffee flavoured ice cream cookies....O.M.G! And only 124 calories each!!

How sad is it that I have to resort to blogging on my iPhone at 11.30pm just because I simply do not have the time to sit down and write something.

Does anyone get the impression that I tend to overload myself with things? Why oh why do I do this to myself. And how have I not crashed and burned yet?

So what's been happening in Casa MamaTee? Well my kids are as feral as ever. Ah well, not quite that bad but I can tell school holidays are right around the corner by judging their behaviour. Jye is just about toilet trained besides him pooping right in the middle of his brothers bed and then proceed to tell me about it. He was as proud as punch.

Friday night I escaped the mad house for a few hours *gasp*. One of my workmates is turning 21 and invited me to his birthday bash at the pub. It's always so interesting to see people outside of work when they're not on their best behaviour. It was a good night but boy did I feel so old being almost 30 and all.

Saturday was my cleaning and procrastinating day. I have assignments due on Monday and I was going to get stuck into it...then the kids and I went next door for a BBQ and bonfire and came home late.

Today the hubby was at home for most part of the day and AWAKE! He usually sleeps through the weekend due to nightshift. In fact, he is at work right now. So anyway we decided to take the kids to a school fete about 20 mins away as it was sunny and warm. And because hubby and I are like jinxed or something, it poured down with rain about 15 minutes after we arrived!! Bloody hell! All we managed to do was have a feed and because we were all soaked to the bone, we left. Of course it stopped raining by the time we got home and was clear for the rest of the afternoon. Grrr!

So now it's midnight. Jeez it's slow typing on my phone! I must get some sleep before another action packed week ahead!!

12 Week Body Transformation

I'm ashamed to admit that I have gained some weight back over the last few months. I worked so hard to get to under 80kg, I don't know what the hell happened to me but 12kg is back on my body. It's been really hard to get motivated, especially when I know what I need to do to lose the weight. Why is it so hard? Why do I keep sabotaging myself? And you know what sucks the most? I've kept the weight off the top half of me(read boobs) and have put it on around my waist, butt and thighs. As if they weren't big enough already. *sigh*

I really, really need to pull my head in. I have to get out of my comfort zone and just fucking do it! There is no excuse and I've got to stop hiding behind them. If I've got time to sit on Facebook, then I have time to exercise. I won't by crap food any more and I need to get organised and have meals frozen ahead of time so when I can't be bothered cooking, there is no need to go to the take away. It's time to really get serious about this, no more half arsed attempts. The only person I'm hurting is myself.

With that said, I bit the bullet and signed up to Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation. In case you've been living under a rock, Michelle Bridges is one of the trainers on the Australian Biggest Loser series. She created the Michelle Bridges 12 Week Body Transformation, where each week she provides a meal plan, workout plans and there is plenty of support. The forums are great, but the Facebook group for the Perthies has been amazing thus far. There are so many women there who have shared their stories, their before and after pictures, etc it is so inspirational and it's given me motivation to do this.

So there will be more posts from me as I transform this body once and for all. I don't want to get to 30 having spent all of my 20s being over weight. I am committed to this program and I WILL KICK BUTT!!! And that's a promise!!
