I’m still here

What a hectic week this has been!  Both my kiddies have been ill and I have had pink eye…  So not the best week, doing my best to keep things clean!

On a good note though – I had my cholesterol checked and did a full health check and besides from needing to lose 10 kg’s – I am classified as healthy!  So that is encouraging!

I managed to get in a couple of cycles around the lake this week – was so beautiful!  Love living in the ‘Springs’!  Just so good to get out into the fresh air and have some me time, especially when things are so crazy!

Talk soon 🙂


Side Step…

Ever feel like you’ve got so much going on that nothing is getting the best of you!  At the end of a day like today, I feel like a failure as a mother, wife, friend and just in general!  Need to learn something from this?!  Stop over committing myself?  Learn to say NO?  Do what is important to me and my family and the other stuff just has to wait?

My little girl has been ill and my little boy is struggling to adjust to school…

With that thought – I didn’t get my workout in today!

M1 : Lean 95 and a slice of toast

M2 : Slice of toast with cheese and tomato

M3 : Lean 95

M4 : 2 Rusks and tea

M5 : Hot Chocolate and a low fat apple cinnamon muffin and chocolate covered nuts!

M6 : Salmon and veggies.

Not the best day but I accomplished something today………………  I didn’t BINGE at the end of today – even though I really wanted to and even though I felt justified to give up!   I stopped myself & for that reason I think maybe I’m not a failure!


An inch closer

It’s just past 11pm and it’s been a long day!

I achieved all my goals except the one about only having 1 rusk!  I had 2 again….  ah the Ouma’s Breakfast rusks are DEVINE!  My perfect comfort with a cup of tea in the afternoon…  With that beautiful thought – let me share the highs of my day.

Getting back into the gym felt so good, even for the 30 minutes I snuck given my daughter is not well.  It helped me cope better with the day, knowing I got in there – even though I never planned to.  Was a last min decision and so glad I did it.

M1 : High protein slice of french toast and a smidgen of all gold

M2 : Lean 95

M3 : Egg white frittata with leaks, mushroom and tomato with a tiny amount of gouda and garlic

M4 : Tea and 2 rusks

M5 : Lean 95

M6 : Fruit and frozen yogurt 100ml

All in all – I’m happy with today.  Given some of the things happening in my life, i’m happy to be able to say that today I inched my way one step closer to my goals!

🙂  Over and out

Goal for tomorrow, a good workout, better lean protein meals, go shopping for some fish and fresh veg, 2 lean 95 meals again and MORE water!

I can because I BELIEVE that I can!

1 Oct – quick quick

All in all not a bad day (I thought until I actually typed this out and then I realise all over again, the importance of planning beforehand)

M1 : Lean 95

M2 : Egg Whites, tomato, 2 slices of toast, baked beans, 2 rashes of bacon

M3 : Tea & 2 rusks

M4 :Egg white frittata with mushrooms, leaks and tomato

M5 : a frozen yogurt with pomegranate seeds

M6 : Coco pops bar (which was in my handbag because a friend gave it to me for my daughter)

Thankful to have gotten in an arm and shoulders workout.

Don’t feel too bad about the day, still know I’m making progress.  I’m going to do better tomorrow.

Every morning – I will be grateful for a brand new chance to start the day better than the last…  🙂

night night!

Goal for tomorrow, get more water in, eat max 3 hours after each meal so I will time myself and get in 2 meals of lean 95 and try for only 1 rusk and no coco pops bar 🙂
