Hanging in there

I don't really have much time to post these days. Life is a hectic blur of getting up and cycling before work, zooming to work, trying to avoid traffic build ups, teaching my wee heart out, driving home, spending time with the kids, eating tea and getting back on the bike. Repeat.

So far I've done well with taking my lunch to work every day, avoiding the little snack box and maintaining my committment to lose weight. One of my knees is back to the dull ache stage again which means I really must find to time to strengthen the large muscle groups on that side.

Other than that though things are going well. I'm pleased with the progress that I'm making and I'm getting closer to that new original goal of getting to 75kg. This morning the scales flickerred around 76.2 / 76.3 kg somewhere. Hopefully that was an accurate measure and not just some mean trick. Absolutely have made it past the 5kg lost mark though so a least a quarter of the weight is gone. Weeeeeeeeeeee heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

Just pretend the last 5 months didn't happen.

Ask no questions and I shall tell you no lies!

Back on board, committed to the journey this time and making great in roads.

I started this month afresh after our Christmas and New Year holidays. And this time I gently eased myself into it. I think that has made a big difference. Also my mindset has arrived. That once and for all determined mindset I know it takes to really make a difference in my life.

Next week I start back at work and Manly Man becomes a stay at home dad. Should be entertaining! I'm looking forward to predetermined times of the day for eating and starting out as I mean to go on. Still trying to process exactly what to take for lunch each day but I think I'm getting there. I seem to do best when I eat the same thing in and out so whilst it could seem boring to others it works for me.

Start of year weight = 82.2 kg
Today's weight = 79.2 kg.

I had to get off the scales very quickly this morning and did not recheck the weight, hahahaha. Hoping like mad it was accurate.

Next goal weight is 75 kg. Let's do this thing.
