It's 2009 people & party season is over! There's lot of lovely dive sites out there to explore. There's also lots of wet suits that we don't fit into, or our fitness level is not where we would like it to be- so what are we going to do about it [^|^]

For me its......
More walking & aqua classes
More water
Less junk, cakes, lollies & chocky
I have 5 kg to lose by mid Feb, 10kg by end of April so I better get out & walk the dog for starters!

Lots of walking around Queenscliff & Sorrento today while some people were able to dive! Did have a brandy snap & coffee, custard square & Coffee & some jellybeans & not much water!
Also walked for 1/2 hour after tea. Now just have to keep up that much activity for the rest of my life LOL! [^|^] :D

2 weeks over Christmas with very little exercise and too much bad food (nibblys are too tempting) i put on 4kg so now i have to get rid of those extra kilos and keep losing them. Hopefully this year i dan't have an setbacks like last year.

This year i want to get back into walking and gym sessions which are mixed up with very different types of exercise. I think i need to renew my subscription to my personal trainer. I also need to try and cut my intake back a bit.

I have started with a session at the gym yesterday and i am just about to go again.

Damm I was going so well over Christmas, then I went away for a week...diving, wineries, eating, micro breweries, fishing...Now that we're back and my partner and I have moved into our half renovated house motivation is high and I'm pumped for a big year!

Been going well too the last few days, living with a nutritionist has it's benefits. Knowing where all the hidden cr@p is in foods is amazing, makes one wonder how food companies get away with filling us full of sh;t. There must be soooo much money in sugar!

Am getting back on track food wise, water wise & exercise wise after the festive season- which seems to go for weeks now not days!
Scales and clothes are saying I have gained, but I feel better than I usually do at this weight- I can tie my shoe laces & not feel short of breath cos my fat bits are squashing vital organs like lungs when I bend down!

Think Aqua 50/50 starts again this week- yay!

for the last 3 days i've been power walking and watching what i eat , i'm seeing a DR tomorrow he specializes in weight loss. i'm gonna see him once a fortnite he weighs me (and his F-ing scales dont lie) he also takes a blood sample and checks it all out , they can tell how all your organs are and if you have desease like the BIG C or Diabeties , and all the rest of them .
He reckons for my hieght 195 cm i'm supposed to weigh 85 KG'S
Bugger that 90 -95 will be just rite... any smaller and i wont fit in my wetsuit.. lol [8D]

Had a session with my PT this morning, walked around the shops and took my daughter to the park tonight. Hopefully that makes up for not doing anything yesterday. My weigh in at the PT had me down 1/2kg from before Chrissy but up on fat. Doesn't take long to turn muscle into fat.

Walked to the park with miss dog yesterday instead of driving- took about 20 minutes longer. Walked after tea with my other half.
Couldn't sleep this morning after the garbos did their round so got up & went for a walk.
Thats 2 slices of Christmas cake or pud I've walked of! Why do we sabotage ourselves so badly at Christmas?[^()^]

I've cracked 65kg and falling - woo hoo.

And it's all because of the little puppy dog. Trying to wear her out is helping my fitness I think... Size 14 trousers are now falling off on their tightest button settings, and I'm thinking about wearing the skinny jeans again - though I do like my jeans baggy (size 16). Will have to see how muffin top my size 12s are now. And people wonder why I don't like throwing out clothes that don't fit me.

Of course the easiest way to wear out the puppy, is to find another puppy to chase her round...

still got one more vaccination and one more week to go before I'm allowed to take her for walks and to the local park where unvaccinated dogs might be encountered.

.... but if puppy has a puppy friend to wear it out you will be wearing the size 16 jeans & they won't be baggy at all [:-}][:-}]

So keep walking that puppy
65kg lucky you :)
Id be happy with another 10kg on that [^|^]

Had a cray chasing dive yeterday. Totally stuffed me was only shallow but lots of swimming. Every cray i caught managed to escape trying to get back to the boat as i forgot my catch bag. There were tons of little ones but only a couple of sized crays but we were close to shore in only 3 metres of water. So thats my exercise for yesterday, today i am waiting for it to cool down a bit before i venture outside.

First weigh in for the year tonight at my weight loss club & it won't be good.
I think I have put on more like 15kg since I got my 7mm wet suit just over 2 years ago. Have pinched my sciatic nerve twice & then got the clot in my leg in that time- these alone should motivate me to trim down.
What did I do today but eat chocky & christmas cake when I read my friends Mum died last week- I felt awful I hadn't read it in the paper sooner and contacted him.

I worked today (first paid work since June 1!) helping out an injured friend- it felt good! Its time I got a job, I have my little rest & I'm over that. Theres things to do & places to go & I will need money to do that!

Ended up playing netball last night, oh what joy it was to run around in the heat in a giant shed! I took on 4 litres of water and didn't pee once!

Another stinking hot day here in Vic, got out of strike team duties and as such even might go to the beach for a big swim as opposed to a long walk.

Been keeping a food/alcohol diary each day since the start of the year. It's surprising to see how much one eats over the course of the day. I have found that it helps heaps and I am eating alot better as my partner is reviewing and analysing it at the end of each week, and if im not up to scratch there is set penalties such as the removal of "benefits of co habituation...

Loving the hot weather!

Weigh in last night was not as bad as expected, but still not good. Hot weather today & not working hasn't helped- backwards & forwards to the fridge.....

We are "stay at home" tanker for the whole week. That's Murphys Law kicking in lol- cos I'm not working I can go away on strike teams any old time I want or am needed, so of course all has been quiet on the Central Vic front!

I've asked my partner to hide all the Christmas basket goodies that we were given . There's all sorts of stuff that tastes great
but my new 2009 motto -- I DON'T INDULGE IN THINGS THAT MAKE YOU BULGE .[8D]

this morning was 6am kickboxing and the humidity is doing its job and we were all stuffed by the end

hubby also went back to his trainer this week and he's suffering [^-=-^], he was most upset by his chrissy weight gain but thats what you get for putting yourself into a icecream coma for a week i guess [}:)]

Went to the gym last night and tonight. Tonights session was a bit shorter than usual due to working late and working outdoors in the heat today. Still haven't heard back about the hockey yet.
