An action-packed night!

Why is it that when you are on holidays you never seem to get on top of the cleaning, washing and ironing? Maybe it is just me :). I seem to procrastinate so much on the holidays.

Well, tonight while T is at work, I am going to see how much I get done. I might check back here every few hours to keep myself honest with how many chores I get done.

Today was our 6 year anniversary - I have been obese for 5 years now...time to change that. What a way to spend my anniversary - cleaning!! :) I secretly LOVE it when my house is super clean though and it can be my anniversary present to my awesome husband.

I'm going to get there because I'm going to try again.

I did well before Christmas...I exercised, tracked and drank water. All of that showed on the scales on the Wednesday before Christmas too...93.3Kg (a total loss of 8.3Kg). I also felt fitter and thinner and I got to wear an outfit on Christmas day that I hadn't been able to wear for years.

But then, I let it all go over Christmas and the last few days - today I weighed myself (in clothes and after a meal) and I had put on something like 2.7Kg in four days!!

I know that tracking, drinking water, getting regular exercise and pushing the limits of exercise works. So, that is what I am going to do. I won't do it perfectly every day but I need to keep trying until I get there.

I don't know why I do this to myself but...If I lose 300 grams each week, I can lose 15.6Kg between now and this time next year.

If I lose 500 grams each week, I can get to goal by this time next year.

I want that, I want goal and I know how to do it I have to give it my all to do it and keep persevering.

I can, I can, I can, I will, I will, I will do this.

Am going to start when I wake up with a lovely glass of water, tracking, 2 hours of house cleaning and a walk before lunch.

Actually, I am going to go and set up my tracking diary now :).

Motivation is running hot!

About time I got back to this.

So far, I have lost 7.5Kg since an official start about October 2008. I am proud of my loss of 7.5Kg but I know I could have done better. I have read so many blogs of people who have managed to lose over their 30kg in the same amount of time. Reading their stories has given me a boost to be so committed. I want to lose my remaining 26Kg of not needed weight by September 2010. I know what I have to do so I am just going to do it. Do it with an attitude of keeping on improving.

I feel like I am going to have a good week this week because when I track and exercise I have big losses and this week (only one day in my weigh-in week so far) I have been tracking and exercising!

I am cleaning today - going crazy with it - being super OCD about it - am loving it and, to reward myself at the end of the day, I am going to put my Christmas tree up and wrap presents. Bit late with the tree but I haven't wanted to put it up until everything is super clean - gotta stop with that perfectionist mindset if I'm going to be successful at this weight loss hey!
