Well i have survived my busy social week and had a great time and even better lost 1.1kg this week!! I am so so happy. This was after drinking way way too much at my best friends 21st on Saturday night and feeling so very average yesterday. I will credit myself though the rest of the week i was in total control and I knew that saturday was going to be a big night. However I probably should have eaten something at the party or before because I was one very drunk girl!! But a very happy one at that!! I would have burned so many calories from all the dancing though. I stumbled in at about 4.30am sunday morning!! I will post some photos in the next few days as my friend has my digital camera at the moment (she looked after me!).

All my other social outings were really good too but I didn't drink at any of them and ate before I went or when i came home. I really feel at this stage of my journey that I am in total control of everything. I am feeling really good about myself, my exercise and eating and so proud of everything I have achieved. So go me!! hehehehe

This week social wise is a lot quieter thank goodness. Work wise will probably be flat out. I recieved some really bad news today from my receptionist that my bosses sister (he is only 25 and his sister 22 or 23) had died so he will not be in for work for awhile. I called him and told him i'll take care of the practice but i was totally shocked. I have only met his sister once but I really feel for him and his family. It just really made me think that things can change so suddenly. It really made me appreciate all the people in my life and what is really important to me. Everything just seemed to be put into perspective.

Have a fabulous week everybody. Less than 4 weeks to christmas!! i'm so excited

Love Amy

This week is crazy

I can't blieve it is wednesay already and I haven't posted since last monday. Time just flys by. I have such a busy rest of the week. I am going out to dinner tonight with one of my bosses to discuss what is going to happen when I go away and discuss future practice plans. Tomorrow night i'm going out with my uni friends for a catch up- for some I haven't seen them since last year when we finished. Friday I have a sporting dinner presentation night that I have to go to for my boyfriend as he is the captain for the WA rugby team. Saturday is my best friends 21st and sunday i have another 21st and a baby shower. So as you can see I have a very busy social calender ahead. In between that I have work, a conference and maybe some sleep!! hehehe

Food and exercise is great. Ire-read Sharleens blog today and what she wrote in the last post is how I feel completely. I am feeling so good at the moment that I don\t know why I waited so long to get into this frame of mind and just do it. I lost another 500g this week and things are really feeling loose on me and i'm loving all my food and exercise and just don't feel tempted by anything lately. I have another 1.5kg to go!! By Christmas I should be at goal and maybe a little bit less would be nice.

Have a good rest of the week

I feel tired

I feel really tired today. I have been waking up ridiculously early lately then can not go back to sleep. I woke up at 4.30 this morning but i didn't get up then. I was going to go for a walk this morning but i'm going to the gym for weights tonight and then going and doing jacobs ladder with my dad after that. I have a funny feeling my iron is down because i get like this when it is low.

Exercise and food wise has been ok but i didn't lose anything this week. I know in myself that i ate fairly well most of the time but i knew more portions were bigger than usual. So this week i am going to be extra good and try really hard for another big loss. Exercise wise tho i had a really good week last week. On monday i went for a 40 min walk, and then an hour ride, tues i did weights and a body attack. On wednesday i went for two walks for a total of 2hrs walking!! Thursday i went for another walk and weights. Friday i did weights, saturday i did 1hr cardio and sunday i did another body attack and weights. So i did quite a bit this week but I think i may up the intensity and throw a few runs in instead of walks (if i'm feeling up to it!)

I had a fairly quite weekend gone as all my friends are doing exams at the moment and all studying hard. I took my boy out to see boytown on sat night and it was so funny. I really enjoyed it. Caught up with two girlfriends on sunday arvo for coffee and a good catch up. So all in all it was very mellow!!

Have a great rest of the week everyone.

Another loss

I lost 400g this week. All up i have lost 6.0kg. I was a little disappointed with this because i have tried so hard this week. But it is TTOM so i might be retaining fluid. This week I did 4 weight trainings, 2 long walks, step class, 5 cardio sessions lasting over an hour. So all up i was happy with that. This week i want to loss a bit more than that so i'm really motivated>
have a good week everyone.

Love me
