Back in the saddle again!

You can take my lack of blogging here that things haven't been going so well in the weight-loss/maintenance stakes and you'd be right.

Since my last post (many, many weeks ago you will note), I have been for zero runs and pretty much eaten (and drunk) what I liked.

OK - it hasn't been THAT bad!

I don't really have any good answers as to why I've fallen off the wagon. I just have made not so great choices. I know that eating potato chips won't be good for my waistline. I know that wine contains a billion kilojoules. I know these things.

I know I feel better when I exercise. I know the dog is better behaved too. I know these things.

And yet...I lapse into old, unhealthy habits.

And so here I go again. Time to lift my game and start treating the old bod a bit better. I've downloaded the first week's Weigh It Up 3 Week Winter Challenge. I am going to just Freaking Do It and start run/walking again. There's a pretty good view from the Sydney Harbour Bridge in September, I hear...

So here is my new starting point:

73.9kg - 162.9 lbs
And away we go again!


  1. So glad to see you back blogging, have missed reading up about you. You know mate, I've come to realise in the past few weeks, that this isn't magic, and my weight, no matter how long I do this for, or what weight I get down to, it's always ALWAYS going to be an issue for me. That will never change. And I know after my disastrous weigh in this week, where I'm now heavier than the start of this round, that I am always going to have to remain vigilant.

    I'm so glad you are back on the proverbial wagon. You know you are not alone, and that's a comforting thought. Now keep on to it, get back running, wear those cute Lulu tops, and JFDI, okay????? (I'm being pushy I know, sorry!!)


  2. How's that saddle going Ingi ???

    1. Oh...so so! Been working heaps of long days, so the diet is about 50% there. Alas, the exercise is still a distant memory. Keep being pushy - I reckon I need it!!!


Bloggers LOVE comments! We are pretty needy that way, so go on, leave some love :-)

52 Ancestors - Unusual Name

In this week's post, we have been asked to look behind an "unusual name" and I've chosen my great-aunt's husband, Fred...
