When I'm good, I'm very very good

When I'm bad I'm wicked!

Today was a good day. I went to my nephew's 1st birthday. Surrounded by cakes and biscuits and lollies etc... what did I eat? carrot sticks and sausages. I'm so proud of myself.

On a sad note, I tried on my skinny jeans and they are a bit tight right now... how could I let myself put so much weight on again? Why why why? Someone please tell me the answer, I seriously need to send my brain in for reprogramming. I don't want to backslide again. I really really really want to reach my goal then be able to maintain it.

Sadly when I'm having a bad day/week/month, my brain just doesn't care.
I put crappy food in my mouth and don't care.
I remind myself I won't fit my skinny jeans and I don't care...
Wish I knew what to do about that. Wish I could kick that 'me' in the butt and tell her to stop being so stupid! When I find the answer to all these problems I'll write a book :-)

Hope any of my readers that are left are doing well. Write to me. I love to hear from you!

The scale

I have a love hate relationship with my scales.
They seriously jump up and down every day.

I hate the way they effect my mood, especially if I've been really good with food. I don't understand them at all. I know I have a choice and I could NOT stand on them, but if I don't, I tend to cheat with food. Standing on the scales keeps me accountable even if I hate the number sometimes!

This week my hubby has been really unwell and the Dr's don't really have an answer for us, which is a little stressful. Despite that, I've been doing really well and not cheating too badly (my only cheat has been a few raisins).

I'm meant to be running in the morning, if the rain stops...
Must go running.
Must go running.
MUST GO RUNNING!

Don't ya hate it...

Don't ya hate it when Dukan dieters drop off the blogger-universe ;-)
Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I've been so busy and stressed that not only have I stopped blogging but haven't done so well on my diet either. I was 1kg away from my true weight and had plateaued for months. It got too hard. I let non-dukan food slip in... 4kg later, I'm now 5kg from my true weight again - grrrrrrrrr

I'm back on Dukan again, newly motivated and wanting to fit my new clothes again.
I've started back on my running.
I'll make a real effort to blog again, perhaps not every day, but at least a few times a week.

Hope everyone is doing okay.
Til next time

Golly gosh

I can't believe another month has passed without a blog post from me. You can tell I'm busy when I don't get to my blog very often. I'm just trying to fit too much into my life...

I'm trying to get back into running. It's 1 step forward, 2 steps back right now, but the weather is slowly warming up (today not included) and that helps for getting out of bed before the sparrows fart.

Food is only okay. I made a lemon cake thing with coconut flour yesterday. TOTALLY different texture to a normal cake but still very very yummy. And very very lemony. Yum!


As a family we enjoy a sport called geo-caching. This is last weekend, deep in the New Zealand bush, after we found the 'treasure spot'. (By the way if you have any young adults in your life, I co-wrote a novel about geo-caching - also includes romance and adventure - that is on amazon and called Forbidden Territory .)

Have a great weekend, friends.
