its an all green weekend

So I weighed in this morning. And I am down a few! Woohoo. Let the green streak start!

I have been a very good boy this week and ate healthy like a champ.

This weekend will be the real test, rugby world cup semi's, (boks by 4, aus by 8), a mates party, and another one on Sunday.

Here's to a great weekend, I will keep my head, stay clever, eat clever, and weigh again on Monday morning.

57 days of change.

In 57 Days I have a wedding where I am one of the groomsmen. My buddies wife has decided that the groomsmen should all be wearing suspenders. Bloody hell. Ask any guy with a bit of a spare tyre round his waist if he enjoys wearing suspenders. I promise you that you wont find many. You look like a complete overweight idiot. With the suspenders sliding around, and drawing all the attention to what looks like a light bulb on your ample tummy. Especially if you are in a white shirt. Which off course we are.

So there is my motivation, maybe she is doing me a favour.

I'll why in today or tomorrow morning, post it, and get grilling. Now.

From now on every day is Monday, at least for the next 57 days.

I hate suspenders.

Keeping it green

That's all I want to do. Today was a green entry on my Kg's I have shed page. I want 8 of them, 8 weeks in a row.

1/1 then

Hoping t o make it 2/2 on Monday, even if it is just another 500g.

Every bit helps.

If I can go at 2kg's a week that would be unbelievable.

I'll be back on Monday with news, of the good kind, I hope, I believe.

Here we go again!

Here we go again. Back in the plus 110 kg category! Time to start over, and what better time than the month I am turning 30 in. It's been one crazy year. Very busy, on all fronts, at the job, at home, and on the social scene.

I am feeling it, and now is as good a time as ever to start transforming and blogging a little bit more, even if it is just once a week.

June wont be less busy, but neither will any other of the months  left in the year. So I have decided to try and change my lifestyle again, and all that goes with it.

Hopefully I will be 99kg's somewhere in December. That's the goal, that is not asking to much from myself.

So another Label, another challenge, 7 months to go, lots to loose, more to gain. Much More.

So I am down a few. This week has started great. Had a nice walk home from work last night and another this morning. Also had breakfast this morning, and hoping to make a habit of that. I think most of the weight I lost in the last week was probably down to me having a proper stomach bug. Still, I'll take it! Feeling better know and finishing my pills today.

The plan is to keep away from sugar, starchy stuff, and the carbs. I know everyone does not believe or support the whole LCHF idea, and I am also not 100% convinced. What I will say, is that parts of it seems to work for me. Carbs definitely screw around with my blood sugar. If I stick to more salads and proteins I do have more energy. And feel fuller for longer. I am not so big on the whole fat thing though. As far as sugar is concerned, I am trying to give that a miss as far as possible.

Well, still far to go. I am more than 20 kg's away from where I want to be,  and about 7 away from where I have been.

Hitting 99.9 kg's will be BIG. And that's about 11 kg's away. I'd like to get there before April.

Let's do this.

Have a good one!
