Today is the start of winter...

I've been on this journey for 9 months now and you'd think I'd know better than to let myself get really hungry. Sadly I'm still weak sometimes. And 3 biscuits later I'm feeling rather annoyed with myself. Grrrrrrrr. Will do an attack day tomorrow to compensate.

We bought a pull up bar to hang on the doorframe this week... OH MY GOSH - ouchie! It's safe to say that I have no upper body strength left and the little I did have, didn't even get me half way up to the bar. For those you of (like me) that can't do a chin-up or pull-up yet, you can start with negative chin ups. Which means to stand on something so you get your chin over the bar then hold as long as you can there and slowly lower yourself down. My goal is by the end of June to be able to do one chin-up without the chair :-) wish me luck!!

Bullet points:
• Ugh... those carbs which I did SO not need are sitting heavily in my stomach... blah. Stupid stupid me.
• Today is the official start of winter in New Zealand.
• I've finished week 1 of my c25k. Looking forward to week 2.
• Long weekend (Queens birthday) this weekend - yay.
• Water hasn't been very good this week. (sorry water buddy)

Have a good one.


  1. Dont beat yourself up too much, I crack at least once a week! I bought some dukan biscuits, they taste a bit cardboardy though. Good luck with the chin ups!

  2. Good luck with the chin ups!

  3. I haven't been doing too well on my water either buddy....Recommit!!!! We can do it.

    NO more calling my water buddy 'stupid'!!
