I've been slack in jumping on the boat this month. The new jobs are unfortunately paid monthly and DH won't get his first pay till September so money is beyond tight! It's meant a budget of about $150 for 6 weeks of food! So pretty much anything we can afford (picture lots of rice and pasta) really isn't so great for the whole weight thing but I'm doing what I can. Making sure I drink lots more water and exercise where I can.
I had an absolute achievement tonight on the exercise front and feeling very proud, so I want to brag. Joking, probably more complain as I feel like I'm about to die! Up until tonight I haven't been able to exercise for more then 5min, 10min absolute tops, even that would leave me struggling for breath and feeling like my lungs collapsed. I've had doctors for the past 6 months or so telling me I will be like that for the rest of my life. I finally cracked the sh!ts today though, I'm sick of feeling like I can't do anything so I decided to push myself, I spent half an hour on my exercise bike! Did a huge (for me anyway) 20kms!!!! Thinking I may have pushed myself too much as I'm still struggling 20min later but I did it, almost killed myself doing it but I'm feeling pretty chuffed.
Enough of me! Ruby, I have a massive sweet tooth too. And TTOTM I will happily sit down and devour a family block in about 5 min
I find fake chocolate works, there's a couple of sugar free and carob alternatives that are quite nice.
MrsWtobe, hugs! I think we all eat badly at that time and DH makes it worse for me! I'll make an off handed comment about a craving and he'll make it appear (god help me when I'm pregnant). A pig out every once in a while isn't a bad thing
MP, you're going great guns! You'll have a rocking bikini bod well and truly for summer the way you're going
Misteri, exciting about the dress fitting! Those two months will just fly by and believe me there's nothing like a white dress to help with the motivation. I lost 5kgs for our wedding. Then put it all back on but at least I looked good on the day
Sorry if I missed anyone, this month's gone off so a bit hard to go back through it all
