Week 5: Feelin Groovy

Today is weigh-in day for another week, I was  a bit apprehensive I mean we had Apprentice Farmboy with us last week and although I made a concerted effort to be good, we went to the Movies (popcorn mmmmm I LOVE salty popcorn, seriously I love salty anything really) and had Subway for lunch.

Up early Friday morning to take AF to the airport and I promised him we'd have Macca's for brekkie, so of course I had Macca's too. So I promised to be good on the weekend, and I was, pretty much, apart from having friends over for dinner on Sunday night (lasagne, I mean hello, who doesn't love lasagne ;-), but I tricked em all and served a lovely tossed salad with it. Then ruined the whole effect with a custard filled pecan danish for dessert.

Mind you I had been very good on Sunday morning, I delivered around 250 pamphlets for my new life as a Herbalife Distributor while Farmboy attended a Swap Meet (for the uninitiated this is a carpark where a whole heap of Car Nerds gather to buy and sell, dirty, greasy old bits and pieces the rest of us would just throw in the bin). Farmboy is something of an expert on BMC (British Motor Company, meaning minis, hillmans etc) as he learned his real trade (Motor Mechanic) on them back in the late 60's. So he was in his element dispensing wisdom left and right and picking up a bargain or two in the process. I think he even managed to pick up a couple of parts for the old Jaguar that's now been under restoration in our garage for 20 years!

Farmboy's Pride and Joy!

So after 1 1/2 hours of wandering around Prospect Vale I eventually limped up to the Casino to wait for Farmboy to arrive. 

All in all a pretty full weekend. So as I said I wasn't sure just which way the scales would go this morning.

I held my breathe, because we all know that makes you weigh less right? Closed my eyes, stepped on the scales and slowly opened my eyes. YAAAAAAYYYYY ... WWWOOOHHHOOOO another kilo gone forever. I'm now down to 94 kilos (Yes I know I've got a LONG way to go but at least I can see it happening now, baby steps please, my first goal is to get down to 90kg). What's more impressive to me is I feel energised, never hungry and I've lost a total of 25cm of body fat, 11cm in the bust, 7 cm in the waist and 7 cm in the hips, to say I'm impressed is an understatement.

So the start of week 5 is now upon us, what will the week bring, who knows but I will endeavour to rise above temptation and stick with the plan. Multivitamins, Florafibre, 2 Shakes a day and 1 colourful meal. Farmboy has threatened garden weeding as a weekend goal, I'm not as convinced , I've always been more supervisor than supervised, we'll see!

Tip of the Day: 

Monitor your progress – research shows that people who keep a diary of everything they eat and all the exercise they do have a much greater chance of success and are more likely to maintain their healthy new diet over the long term.
