New Do and Subway

I got my hair cut last night. I was going for something a little shorter, a little more edgy and something that suited my face (that seems to have gone from round to oval since my weight loss). Well I came out feeling cute, sophisticated and stylish! Loving my new do! Husband thinks it makes me look older... I think it makes me look sophisticated and professional.

Anyhoo... the eating front has been so much fun over the past couple of days. Yesterday I had subway for lunch. I got a wrap with turkey, ham, cheese and loads of salad... took me around 1 hour to eat, but DAMN it was so freaking tasty! Then for dinner I had a small bowl of Beef with vege and rice noodles. Even though I've had heaps of fill out, I can still feel some restriction, which is awesome.

On the exercise front, I was at the gym before my hair appointment. I jogged on the T-mill for 16 minutes. The bra I was wearing really wasn't suitable, so I was feeling a bit self conscious. Burnt 550Kcal and exercised for 45 mins. I'm off to the gym again tonight for another similar work out, and then tomorrow morning I'll do Core and Spin Classes. 5 times this week, which is great.

Scales showed me at 85.8kg. Not entirely happy with this, but I really do think I was quite dehydrated. I've eaten a load of carbs over the past few days, which attracts a bit of water as well... I'm just going to keep up with the exercise and hopefully that will minimise any damage!!

MYF - have a great time on your holiday! Can't wait to see piccies!!!

Much love xxx

Hey LBG, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I started reading your latest posts and was so impressed and charmed that I'm going to have to go back and read your story from the beginning. It sounds like you have had an incredible journey and I'm betting you'll be one of those people who will inspire me.

It must be the season for new dos - I'd love to see it but will cope. Do you sit at the hairdresser looking at the person in the mirror wondering who they are, or have you moved on from that? xox
