I've been a Weight Watchers Leader for over 3 years now. I've missed blogging so I'm going to restart in a new blog. I'll share my thoughts, personal successes and struggles, and if I can I'll motivate you to achieve your goals.

Happy Australia Day and Operation 40th Birthday

Today is Australia Day and my day started with a bacon and egg Breakfast WITH toast. I don't tend to have bread much these days.. The more I have the more I want. and I don't like the bloat that comes with it! So while I do have it occasionally I tend not to. I decided to go to the gym today and as luck would have it, Jamie (my favorite class instructor) was doing a TBC (total body conditioning) class.. I'm pretty sure I will hate him Tomorrow, Saturday and probably Sunday! But I'm really glad I did it! I've missed his classes.
When I got home I had lunch and decided to head to Harbour Town by myself to seek out a few bargains (which I did!) I walked for 3 hours strolling around the shops, until they closed and then I came home. We had Chinese take away for dinner, I had chicken and black bean and some steamed rice. Things like that are nice when you haven't had them for a while.
Tomorrow as part of Operation 40th Birthday we are heading off to the Barossa to do some touristy things.. We're going to the whispering wall , Angas Park Fruits and Maggie Beers Farm Shop. The kinds of stuff locals don't really do unless they are taking visitors there. Tomorrow night the plan is to go to Glenelg to The Top of the World Revolving Restaurant I hope we haven't left if too late to book :( Saturday the plan is to go up to Hahndorf and do some stuff that side of town.

Well hello there!

I know it's been a long time since my last blog entry but hey.. better late than never, right? I have decided on a new blog which I'll piggy back on my original blog.
An update on me and us.. Daniel is now 7 and will be in year 2 at school next year.. my baby is all growed up!
I'll be 40 (eek!) in a week or so! I was (not so) quietly freaking out about it, but I have decided that I'm just going to embrace it. I'm not the first person to turn 40 and I won't be the last, so I'm strangely calm about it now.. but I guess there is still a week and a bit before the big day!
I now go to the gym, yep you read that right, I go to the gym. I love spin classes, I'm learning to love the cross trainer and rowing machine. I generally really enjoy going to the gym. I never thought I'd hear myself say it. After losing most of my weight walking!
I still love my job as a Weight Watchers leader! I'm currently doing 7 meetings a week + 1 on 1 consults in Myer in Adelaide on Fridays.
I'm currently above my goal weight and I'm working on getting that back off again now. Just because I'm a leader now it doesn't mean I'm no longer a Weight Watchers member. I have struggles just like everyone else. I weigh in each week and chat to another leader about my week. My goal is to get to goal by May. I will do a whole separate post on goals!
Until next time..
I have seen a surgeon about getting some excess skin removed, which I am planning on doing sometime this year. I do plan on creating a separate blog about that!
