Oh what a fab day it is my friends…sun is shining here and thought I should post a wee update before I head off to the gym! Been awfy busy this past few weeks and have lots to tell.
First and foremost though a wee update about the poundage situation! Last time I wrote sure I was moaning because there was no downward movement on the scales despite my sterling efforts at the gym.
Well…thrilled to report that as expected took a wee sudden tumble last week and dropped another 6lbs making my total loss to date 72lbs….yay!!! *dancing the happy dance*
To be honest I don’t even feel like I am on a diet anymore or having to `work` at it. It`s just kind of happening now.
It feels normal now to walk for miles, go to the gym and keep active. It gives me such a wee buzz that I actually can`t wait to get started in the morning…luving it!!
Food wise…its healthy choices most of the time but with the attitude that a wee bit of what you fancy is good for you too….so do not feel deprived!
Have decided to keep my band on the loose side for now because I love my wee meals out and don’t want to feel like I can`t join in or worry about pb`ing in public. I am out there having fun, socialising and generally enjoying myself as well (too much sometimes) *giggles*
… I have eventually reached my `sweet spot` and it’s a great place to be.
Everyone is different I guess but for me just knowing that I can tighten up my wee internal friend if I ever do slip into bad habits again is such a comfort. I feel in control and that is very empowering my fellow bandits…oh yes!
Right….as you know I was heading off to the races a few weeks
back with my gorgeous girlies. Pleased to report a fab day had by all! Felt great to get all glammed up in my new red dress and got loads of attention and compliments…oh my!…check me oot lol!
The girls were certainly rocking it that day…ha!
Been ticking off a few firsts over the past few weeks as well. …used to love hillwalking a few years back but hadn’t been in a long, long time folks and although I have been working on my overall fitness was still unsure if I could do it.
Well breaking news chums….I can and it was great!
Climbed two mountains in the same week and although challenging and a tad sweaty at times the buzz was amazing and I loved it! Thanks Mx for making it fun…even though I had to drag you up at times 😉
Well that’s Goat Fell and The Merrick ticked off….hoping to bag a few Munros over the summer…been bitten by the bug so bring it on!
Off to Sunny Spain with the gurlies in just over two weeks as well…bikinis, amber solaire and cowboy hats are at the ready…oh yes! Not quite where I want to be size wise yet but soooooooooo getting there.
Just goes to prove folks that things can be turned around with a wee bit of hard work and positivity.
If I can do it so can you!
Right…need to dash….got a rowing machine at the gym calling my name haha!
Till next time Banditos!
