How am I feeling?

Bloody terrific at the moment! Just got back from an early morning gym session where I jogged/ran for 10 mins straight and also did 10 minutes of on/off jogging/walking. 45mins and 403 calories later I’m feeling fanshmabulous! I LOVE the fact that I have so much energy at the moment! Even though I’m eating way less than before the band, I have tones more energy… weird huh?

Thanks for the sipping advice Reney babes! Much appreciated. I did try having a cup of tea in the morning for a while (especially during winter). But I found I could only drink about 1/3 of it, and I was missing out on my berocca as well… so I had to make a choice, and the berocca it was!

I was able to eat quite a bit yesterday evening – I had the left over risotto and half a chicken kiev! I ate it over around 45minutes while I was watching this amazing show about this little girl that has this disease called “FOP” (not sure what that stands for, have to google it. Basically over the course of her very short life her muscles turn to bone and she becomes encased in her own body. They interviewed this 55 year old man who chose to live life “standing up” when too much of his muscle was bone… I was thinking to myself, my goodness, I may be fat… but some people have it so much tougher than me. I need to be thankful for what I do have, and stop complaining about the small shit!

50 days to go until the big day…. I must admit, I am starting to get a little nervous. I was really hoping to be lower in weight by my wedding day… and I could still pull off another 5kg by then, but realistically I’m not so sure! I’ve picked up the exercise effort quite a bit, so hopefully that should help. I had my hair trial this week and I must admit, I am so pleased with the hair do I’m going to have. What’s even better is that I had photos taken of my hair and I look amazing. Ok, so I also had a make-up trial so my skin was looking particularly flawless, but I can actually see my collar bones and my jaw line. I just keep looking at these photos because I really do see the difference…

Food efforts today will be:

6:30am Before BF: Berocca Performance
7:30am – 45minute treadmill action – 403 calories later..
10:00am – Up and Go
12:30 – Lunch out – hrmmm… not sure what to have here, cos I brought my lunch, so I’ll probably just grab a coffee and sip that while the others eat…
1:30pm – Velish Winter Vegetable Soup
3:30pm – Coke Zero
5:30pm – Yoplait Light Yoghurt
6:30 – 7:30pm – Body Jam class
8:00 – Half a can of country ladle potato and leek soup and maybe 1 small bread roll..

Total Calories around 900. Not bad!

Happy Thursday Everyone!

I'm officially an energy addict! I love it. Watch out world, still a loooooong way to go. There will be more.

Collar bones and jawline - congratulations. Isn't it funny when you see a photo and it doesn't match who you think you are.

I'm excited for you too - reading this post was really motivating.
