May have had a bit too much fun this weekend

This weekend was amazing in all aspects except diet and exercise

One of my closest friends was down from Sydney and we over indulged to the max
She is such a bad influence...but I know it's my fault for giving in so easily

On Friday, we spent the day shopping in the city. We walked and walked and walked so I used that as an excuse to eat. We went to grill'd for lunch, I'd never been there but I'd heard it was dangerous calorie wise. I stuck to the mixed vegetable salad because I was able to check the calories on their website. A few hours later, we had time to kill so we decided to get a coffee. We ended up at San churro...again, I'd never been there. My friend was telling me all about how amazing their hot chocolate is...especially the peanut butter melt. I knew I was in for a killer calorie filled dessert, but I didn't want her to feel bad for drinking it alone so I gave in and had one. Bloody amazing! Definitely worth it. For dinner, we went to groove lounge. Again, I was planning on having something light, but my sister and friend were indulging in pizza and pasta and I didn't want to fill like the odd one out. I stupidly decided to get the gnocchi which was laden with cream. I felt so sick afterwards.

Saturday we ate quite well, but I drank. I stuck to clear shots and vodka waters so it wasn't too bad.

Sunday we ended up at cold rock. It was delicious but sickeningly sweet.

Last night I went to max Brenner for the first time. Wasn't worth it!

I don't know what came over me. It's like I just gave up. I went to give for two hours yesterday but I slept in this morning so didn't make it to my morning session today. I really cannot be bothered to go to Zumba tonight but I'm sure ill just JFDI and drag myself there

Not looking forward to weigh in tomorrow. Lets hope I haven't ruined all my efforts on one naugh weekend!

Week 8 Milestone Weigh In

Woohooo Loss of 1.4kg this morning!!

I was really nervous about this weigh in because:
- didn't go to gym on Friday or Saturday
- went out drinking on Friday (straight shots only, and vodka waters)
- Slept in until 1pm on Saturday
- Went out for dinner on Saturday (Huge Lamb and CousCous Salad...which I ate all of!)
- exceeded my calorie intake about 3 out of the 7 days

But I was also hopeful that I'd lose a big number because:
- worked out for two hours on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and for 4 hours! on Thursday!
- I've been wearing my bodymedia armband religiously and am recording every calorie, ensuring that I burn at least 1200 calories more than I consume

Total loss in these 8 weeks = 9.6kg
Totall loss since pre season= 11.9kg!

Current weight is 75.1kg
At the beginning of this journey, my goal was to weigh 75kg
I still have 4 weeks to go!! If I weigh 72kg by the end of this challenge, I will be over the fricken moon!
I already am though. I am so proud of myself and I feel amazing already

Took my measurements this morning also:

Total Changes:
Bust: -7cm
Waist: -11cm
Hips -9cm
Thigh -9cm
Arm -2cm

Total cms lost: 38cms!!

I am so excited to head to Europe now. I'm feeling more comfortable, more fit, and loving myself alot more

3 weeks until I fly out!

Weigh in Week 7

Loss of 800 grams this week
I seem to have an obvious trend going on...big loss one week followed by a mediocre loss
Glad to have lost that much though as I came down with a nasty sore throat and cold this week which left me very unmotivated and tired
I felt something coming on on Sunday when I could not muster up any energy at Zumba...was a waste of a class really
Couldn't get out of bed on Monday either...and felt quite lazy and annoyed at myself for sitting on the couch all day
Stopped feeling sorry for myself yesterday though and managed to burn 250 cals on the treadmill followed by 500 cals at Zumba
I also got my new Polar FT7 HRM which I absolutely love! Certainly makes a huge difference in my workouts when I know how hard I am working
Went to the gym bright and early this morning and burnt 450 cals...was not going to leave until I reached at least 400!
Off to step class tonight.

Total weight lost in the past 7 weeks = 8.2kg!
Since Preseason- 10.5

Very happy with my results so far
at this rate, there's no reason why I shouldnt reach my ultimate goal of 55kg by my 25th birthday at the end of January!

In exactly 4 weeks, I'll be jetting off to Europe, so if I can lose at least another 3-4kg I'll be over the moon!!

32 days...

Until I'm off to Europe!
I cannot wait. These past 6 weeks, I have worked my ass off to be as fit as I can be for my travels
I'm headed to Malta for 6 weeks, but I'd also like to do some travelling while I'm there
I've had my eye on a few different tours, but finally booked one yesterday...

A trek through the 5 villages of the Cinque Terre in Italy!

Yes, you read correctly...a TREK!
Some days we could be hiking for up to 8 hours =S

I'm a bit nervous, but I decided to suck it up and set myself a challenge
Plus, I'm sure views like below will be well worth the trek!

I don't think I will train for the trek, but I will be working extra hard to increase stamina and endurance

Yesterday, I did a total of 4 hours at the gym over the day! 12WBT workout in the morning, cardio and weights during the day at our work gym and then a double of combat and zumba at night

If that doesn't kill me, then I'm sure the trek will be a breeze :P

I am absolutely loving life at the moment and am on such a high
But there are times where I still struggle with fat days and feeling sorry for myself
So I started rummaging through all my old photos and came across this beauty

In three years, I have lost 50kg

Week 6 Weigh In... Half Way Mark!!

I am so fricken happy this morning
Weighed in at 77.3kg...That's a whopping 1.8kg loss!
I am absolutely loving this program
Based on my bodymedia data, If I continue to lose at this rate (Avg 1.2kg p/week) I should get close to 70kg by Malta in week 11!
Ummm yess!!!!
Let's keep moving!

Sneaky weigh in!!

Decided that a mid-week weigh in is appropriate
It's far from my multiple times a day weigh in that I was used to

This weigh in was exciting. The scale read 77.9kg! That's 1.2 in 4 days!
Lets hope it stayed that way, or gets better by Wednesday

Now off to Zumba!
