SERIOUS Milestone!!!

I actually feel pretty emotional right now.  I haven’t had the best week at all and I also haven’t been able to train because I’ve had a chest infection brewing…  Being back at work, was very conscious to just put on a brave face and make it through the day!  Well tonight I got on the scale and I’m 91kg’s – I also pulled out my bags full of clothes and tried this dress on – I was given this last year but ofcourse haven’t been able to wear it!  Tonight I thought let me just try and wow, it was like a glove!

Feeling seriously grateful right now!  To my coach, Nadine!  To myself for just keeping committed to my goal.  I know I still have a way to go – but I’m celebrating these steps and this is pretty big milestone to me!

Last time I weighed 91 kg’s was very briefly about 3.5 years ago, while I was pregnant with Daniel and getting serious morning sickness I went to 91kg’s…  and before that was probably just before my wedding.

So I’m feeling very grateful and even more motivated to keep going!

The last month

Can’t believe it’s almost been a month since my last update!

During that time, I’ve been on holiday and returned.  I’m also closer to my goals and putting one foot infront of the other.  I’ve also started a job!  There has been LOTS of change in my life!  But good change and change that I was so ready for!

I never reached my goal of 90kg at the end of March, I know where I went wrong and I’m not giving up!

Before I left for my holiday, I went for the interview and got the job, started the day before my holiday…  it was just really stressful because I had to figure out what do do with my kids and I turned to food… Then on holiday, what was meant to be a beachy holiday, turned into a rain filled holiday and again I turned to food!

So I got back from holiday and tried to hide from the scale!  But then I tackled it head on to realise I’d gained in total 4kg’s!  I was very disappointed but at the same time I knew for almost 2 weeks I went back to my old habits and some!  Anyway, last week I refocussed and was super strict.  As a result I lost 4.5kg’s!  So I’m really chuffed that’s off… but now I really want to thrash this 90kg BARRIER once and for all!

So watch this space!  I hope to thrash it in the next 2 weeks!  🙂
