Weight Watchers - Week 14 : UP .8kg's

In the great scheme of life, .8kg's is not going to destroy me.  It will definitely make me reflect on what I did wrong.  One of those is that I have slowly let the carbs sneak back into the diet - guess they will be shown the door again.  LOL  The next thing and the BIGGIE for me is the water.  I've been BAD, BAd, bad!!!  Time to get it up......
Now, am I doomed to eat 'lettuce' for the rest of my life? - most likely.  Hubby keeps saying: but when you're at goal you can eat those things you love.  Well, in all honesty NO I cannot - because I  will end up back at square one and no way do I want to do that.
I have some homemade veggie soup on the go.  Not only is it nutritious but the budget lurrrvs it!!  
Hugs and back soon with some news on how it is going with those personal training sessions.  
Have a good one....

Get over your body... and get on with your life

"Getting over your body isn't about giving up or throwing in the towel. It's about accepting your body, warts and all, making a success out of living a free, fulfilling and unrestricted life. It's about not letting the guilt of not being 'perfect' control you! There is nothing wrong with wanting to look your best, but often looking your 'best' takes on a new meaning, and becomes more about looking perfect .... 'perfect' being defined by fashion magazines, Hollywood starlets and designers that have no real importance in our lives whatsoever. And although losing weight and looking good will to a certain degree remove one perceived problem in your life and make you slightly happier, it is not the miracle cure we think it is." Weigh-Less magazine, March/Arpril 2009 Vol 85 I cannot help but wonder if I say some stupid things. The other day I told hubby that I would be more succesful with my glass i.e. selling it, if I was thinner and more beautiful. Am I setting myself up for failure, if, when I achieve my goal and my glass does not sell for whatever reason? Will I have planted the seed in my head to ultimate destruction of everything I have worked so hard to achieve? I know that I am doing this for me, for how I feel. I want to feel energetic, to go on hikes without some serious 'huffing and puffing', to be able to play with my kidlets without feeling tired most of the time. A small part would be my belief that if I was skinnier that maybe my glass would sell better. It is an unknown!! I can honestly say that I have not had the energy or the time to melt glass but hopefully I'll brave it and give it a try today. Chat soon...........

Today's Attitude of Gratitude

* I got to sleep in * My muscles are still most definitely there * I get to do whatever I want to today

Healthy self-esteem...

"Healthy self-esteem means having a constructive, positive and affirmative view of yourself. You believe in your capabilities, accept your limitations and you can set and work towards realistic goals and develop satisfying relationships that aren't hampered in any way by your body. Unhealthy self-esteem, on the other hand, is negative, pessimitic, disapproving view of yourself and the inability to see beyond your limitation and problems. Does that sound familiar? When we have a healthy self-esteem, we feel fully engaged with life and when we feel its lack, we struggle to cope and the world threatens to crash down around us." Weigh-Less March/April 2009 Vol 85 Looking back on this past week, I came to the realision that I was doing everything wrong. I've been calling myself FAT, ugly and telling myself that I just cannot do it. Not good at all. With some reflection and hopefully with this blog just focusing on me, my hope is to change some thought patterns here. NO NEGATIVE ALLOWED!!! Join in my journey to find my skinny me....she's trying to break free ((smile))
