After a mad couple of months I have to say that I have really let myself go…I have not been to the gym in such a long time nor have I even been for a walk along the beach….we have moved from our location to finish off our Motorhome so that we can get the bus finished and ready for travel.
Getting Back On Track
I so need to work out time for Getting Back On Track with Lisas Healthy Lifestyle Challenge. I was so shocked the other day to see a photo of myself. I actually did not believe it was me at first!! The photo was a good wake up call…..I even deleted the photo because I was so upset with my TuckShop Arms that were showing in the picture! I have always struggled with my weight – ever since I was a little girl I was heavy for my age. The weight was worse when I was a teenager, but was almost under control before I had my first child. Then it fell off after my first baby because I was so busy as a first time Mum, and getting ready for my marriage.
Where Did I Go?
Then I had my second boy….it was hard to find time to exercise but I managed and I started to look good – then bingo Baby number three was on the way. I was extra careful with my fitness levels with our third baby and was able to almost bounce back into shape. Then you guessed it – baby number four was excited to make his entrance into our family. I was not careful with what I ate with baby number four and I was huge!! I could not see my toes, nor my legs…..I did not exercise really well and ate all the wrong foods. So when Baby number four was born I was big…so big that the hospital gown would not go over my tummy. He was a big baby – over 10Ibs!! I kept telling the doctors that he was too big but no one would listen
Way Off Track
Before we knew what had hit us Baby Number five decided to surprise us. I was not that fit, but I soon got into shape with swimming every day, walking and watching what I ate. I actually hardly gained any weight until the last few months and had a normal size baby. Since I was extra busy being a Mum to five boys, I was able to keep fit with walking/housework and running around after five boys!! But lately I have slipped with keeping healthy. I so need my butt kicked and to work out the faster way to Getting Back On Track. I love walking but need to be pushed out the door to get going. I used to love the gym but because we are too far out of town I have given up going. I feel the effect of no exercise….tired, lack of concentration, weight gain and all out grumpy. I need to look more into the mirror and find a solution.
Why do skinny people never have to watch what they eat? I only have to look at a cake and put on the weight!! I so love Chocolate and try to be good….but every now and then I give into my cravings and have too much chocolate. Funny how I know its not good for me but I still eat it!! I know that Getting Back On Track can only come from me doing something about it….so I need to look at how I can make the time for “Me” and start walking again. No More Excuses

I have not been on here for some time with a Weight Loss Diary Update so here I am today – a day before Christmas and I realise how much I have not been doing for the last three weeks towards Healthy Weight Loss.
Healthy Weight Loss Diary
How come its so damn easy to put on weight but next to impossible on losing the weight? What is with that? Wonder why some people are thin and then others hold extra weight …… is it their body type/their ability to burn fat or is it just they are so lucky? I have been side tracked these last three weeks with not being able to stay on track with going to the gym, and have missed a few of my walks due to the rain. Why do I set myself up for not succeeding with Healthy Weight Loss Diary?
Weight Loss Diary Update
So because I have been packing up our house to get organised for when our life hits the road early next year, and because of my night shift work I have really let myself down – I have not kept my commitment to the gym, nor have I walked as much as I normally do. I also have gotten into a slack holiday mode and not watched what I have been eating. Even eating Pizza which I know my stomach can not handle. It was so bloated and sore for two days afterwards – so not worth eating the yummy pizza. It was brought pizza and had meat on the topping – so was that a mind thing……thinking about how bad the meat was for me that lead to a tummy ache or was it because I have such a sensitive tummy?
Weight Loss Diary
I have not even weighed myself for the last two weeks and considering how laid back I have been with not working out I am not game to stand on the scales!! I know that I have lost any weight but I don’t feel like my clothes are too tight so I don’t think I have put any weight on, but I feel like I am not as healthy as I would like with my Weight Loss Diary.
I know what my weakness are – chocolate and Fruit Loaf Toast so I have tried hard to stay away from those. Wonder why some people can eat whatever they like and not be affected while others like me have to only look at Chocolate/Donuts/Cakes/Sweets and I put on the weight!!!
Looking Towards 2011
I am going to be on a mission in 2011 – I want a healthier year with more of a weight loss. I will be watching what I will be eating…I will be walking and I will be losing weight. Gosh at least that is what I want for Lisas Healthy Lifestyle Challenge.

With our busy lifestyle and easy way of eating, its all to easy to get caught up in life and forget about Healthy Weight Loss Diary. Lately I have tried to be more careful with what I am eating, when I eat and how much I eat. Having a balanced food chart will sometimes do the trick, but again it can be more about not having the food that is too tempting in the house to start with.
Weight Loss Diary Update
Gosh I feel so guilty because I have been super busy and not able to concentrate on my Healthy Weight Loss Diary the last two weeks. I have not even had the spare minute to weigh myself so I am not sure how I have gone with the Weight Loss, but here is my update of what I have been doing……
Healthy Weight Loss Tips
- Keep the yummy food out of the house, if its not there to eat then you will not be tempted
- Have a glass of water when it is not time to eat ie- not breakfast, lunch or dinner
- Take an extra walk even if it is for 15 minutes to assist your Healthy Weight Loss
- Write down all that you do eat for the day so your mind will acknowledge that you have eaten
- Replace food that are high in fat with low fat options eg:- use avocado on toast instead of butter/margarine
- Eat an apple in between meals
- Use a Meditation Beach Body Hypnosis that will promote Healthy Weight Loss
- If you feel like you need to, call a friend!! Ring a great friend and have a chat and before you know it you will have forgotten to eat extra food.
