I know I’ve kind of been absent off of here lately. And my ‘Road to the ball’ journey just kind of faded away with my lack of interest in posting.
But the ball was on Friday night and I had such a great time. Here’s a pic of me from the night.
I saw a few old friends and one of them kept talking about how much weight I’ve lost.
Yet the thing is, I’ve put on a substantial amount of weight since I got down into the 55kg range. But to my friend that I haven’t seen for literally years, I would have look liked I’d lost a lot of weight. But you know what I said when he said that I’ve lost weight? I said “yeah I did, then I put it back on again and I need to lose it again”. I couldn’t just say thank you! Why couldn’t I just say thank you?? I really need to work on my opinion of my self image.
Hearing someone comment on my weight loss really made me feel happy though. I’d forgotten what that was like. So I’m going to get out of my slump, and start living my healthy lifestyle again. I’m not going to be so strict on myself. I’m going to try a different approach. One that won’t allow me to be derailed so easily.
So tomorrow morning I’ll be back at the gym and back to eating healthy foods. Wish me luck haha.
Sorry, didn’t get a chance to weigh in yesterday! I was too flat out at work and home etc etc blah blah.
Weight Loss (Wed & Thurs): 1kg
Current Weight: 64.5kg
Haven’t been able to head to the gym for the past two days, so I’m really happy with the 1kg loss! I’m going to make sure I make it to the gym in the morning though. I don’t want my body to start feeling sluggish.
So, with last night’s kitchen drama I managed to gain a little bit of weight overnight. It’s ok though. It wasn’t much and I can easily get rid of it.
Weight Gain: +0.6kg (1.32lbs)
Current Weight: 65.5kg (144.1lbs)
I went to the gym this morning and did some cardio/arms/abs. Tomorrow morning I’m going to jump on the treadmill and do some HIIT work, and then do some legs. I love leg days.
So, tonight’s dinner has been somewhat atrocious lol.
I pulled meat out of the freezer to defrost this morning but because IT’S SO FUCKING COLD in Sydney right now, it hasn’t completely defrosted, and I don’t like defrosting meat in the microwave because it does that semi-cooked thing, making the meat rubbery and gross.
Then I thought I’d make a potato bake, only to find out that the cream in my friend WHICH IS IN DATE, is actually off. So I decided to use the potatoes and onion that I’ve already sliced to just create a potato dish with olive oil and some seasoning and chuck that in the oven to cook, and have some salad and/or veggies on the side. But since I pre-heated the oven to the temperature to cook my potato bake with cream, it was too high for just plain potatoes and my food was burnt! There are some edible parts though lol.
I have to laugh because if I didn’t I’d stab someone. Such a pain in my ass!
Looks like we’ll be dialling in a pizza instead. Dinner for day one of ‘Road to the Ball’ is a complete failure. And I’m too pissed off to attempt to cook something else for dinner so I’ll just have a couple of slices of pizza and call it a night I think!
Today is my official weigh-in for my ‘Road to the Ball’ journey, as I’ve dubbed it haha.
I’ll be attending a NAIDOC ball in 25 days, so I wanted to set myself the challenge of slimming down for the ball.
Today I’m weighing in at a hefty 64.9kg (142.8lbs).
My sister told me today that I am officially her +1 to a NAIDOC ball this year. The ball is in 25 days (its actually in 26 days but it is currently 9:52pm so this day is a write-off). I’m calling this my ‘Road to the Ball’ haha.
I love having deadlines when it comes to weight loss. I guess that’s the athlete in me that needs to have a goal to reach with an actual finish line in order to push myself that bit harder.
So I have 25 days to get slim so I can look good in my dress (a dress which I am yet to purchase). I’ll be annoying you guys with daily weigh in posts and foodie blogs. Enjoy lol.
