So work is kind of stressful and its taking awhile but I am getting used to it. Though I got the flu I think :( so I have been dragging myself out of bed and driving to work then dying there.

I hope to feel better soon!

So tomorrow will be day 7 of my new eating plan. The scale batteries died, so I'm just going to take measurements, and then I'll compare them to the ones I took a week ago. I'm hoping the whole monthly hormone fluctuation thing won't affect the numbers too much, but who knows? Those days when I feel "fat" are definitely the most difficult ones, especially when I know I've been sticking to my plan and doing my best. Oh well, here goes nothing!

How is everyone else doing?

UGH I have gained back 4 of the 11 I had managed to lose since I started this dieting thing in June. Took me from June til December to take off 11 lbs and only the holidays to put 4 of that back on grrr!!!

Oh well, 1 lb of that 4 is gone now that I'm back on track, to hopefully I can keep it up and realize that the holidays are just terrible for diets but they are over now haha!

Alright so now I have 6 lbs left to go! By the way, anyone else on Pinterest? Because I have found lots of great workouts on there!

You can either use the myFitnessPal.com website or use the app. The website has forums but for some reason the app doesn't connect to them yet but you can add to your food diary with the app and comment on other people.

Once you're signed up, you can send friend requests. I think I posted my user name and the instructions earlier in this thread. I'm on mobile so I can't easily scroll back.

Chin up! I get the impression with how quiet we've gone on this thread that a few of us have well fallen off the rails.. so you are not alone!

Having moved Bandit down the road means I'm now out mucking out daily. I got out riding Sat & Sun, and yesterday decided to walk to and from the yard - about 2 1/2 miles each way, brought the kids and had to push the buggy - we ran about 1/4 of a mile as out of nowhere it started hailing. Riding over the weekend was... erm... hard work. He was being ridden by a 15yo until 3 weeks ago and she must have let him away with murder. I hadn't ridden in ages and only have the road to ride on - at 17 years young, he took some pull. Sun he was a little monster and threw a buck in when I didnt let him away with napping. My arms were wrecked as he just kept pulling - I had to laugh at the woman who met us shortly after his tantrum and remarked how quiet he was! I'm thinking after all his problems this year, the fact that he felt good enough in himself to push means he must be over them :)

No walking to the yard today - its bloody cold out and my youngest has a woeful cough so going to have to keep him bundled up inside except to bring Bandit in.

I'm now back to working part time - last week was my first week. I'm eatting so much better and since I'm not stuck in the office I'm busy cleaning the house/yard - that's got to stand for something doesnt it?? :) My kid's last sitter told me I was looking much more toned when we were doing the school run last week - yay! lol

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

I have fallen off the wagon too.
Made some lemon meringue pies in the last couple of days....all under the pleas of kids and husband. Of course...I find one slice of pie not good enough...I crave for a second and then I stop there.
Did some two hour hikes in our back bush over the weekend. But yeah...my eating and excercising isn't where it should be.
