I just got back from a four day trip round the bottom of the South Island. I'm freakin exhausted, but I'll try post some pics tomorrow :)

2.5 kilos lost, 22.5cm's and my body fat has been reduced by 3.2% over the last four weeks.

I've got a new programme, I'm feeling so happy and pleased with myself, and I'm going to keep going. I've hit my first goal (under a certain weight), and its all down from there.

Thanks to all for your support - I still need it though :)

Week Four.


So yeah, its week four. I missed the gym yesterday (I've just realised that I should never ever eat white bread - my stomach is killing me), and today I decided to go to the supermarket after work to get ingredients for a healthy pita pizza (mushrooms, low fat ham, peppers, tomatoes) so I skipped Jam class.

I want to thank everyone who puts in comments - they crack me up - and its very cool to get an email saying that you have a message ;) I have decided not to worry about the stupid cow at work - everyone with PCoS has different symptoms anyway - plus I'm going to the doctors on Wednesday so I'm going to ask her what she thinks.

I have been a bit worried though, because I seem to have no appetite (although that does not stop me from eating). I hit the gym, ride my bike home, cook dinner, and I have to force myself to eat it - I'm sure thats not right. I also force myself to eat breakfast in the morning - and I really struggle with that - today I have hardly eaten at all, but I feel like I've just pigged out at an all you can eat restuarant - its really weird.

Anyway, Thursday morning I am seeing my trainer - and as its week four, I'm pretty sure we'll be updating my weight, body fat and measurements.

Wish me luck - I will post the results :)

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.

Some people can be so very negative. I'm very lucky that I have a huge support crew - especially at work - which rocks. There's not much of a chance of me eating crap food during the day, because someone will notice. (and take the rest of the milky bar away even though they don't like them, and give it to someone else - thanks Paul!).

But then you get one. One person - who has PCOS, and think she knows it all because she was diagnosed early. That one person told me I shouldn't be eating (big list here) oranges, apples, peas, beans, bread (I interupted and said I eat brown bread - she replied - no, no bread), potatoes - anything that your body turns into sugar. I said I was doing the 12 week challenge. She said - you won't lose weight.

Thanks. Not. How fucking negative. I'm so determined to prove her wrong. In fact I already am proving her wrong - I've had three different people say to me over the last two weeks they can see my cheekbones slowly starting to appear - the Pandyr found a hip bone (okay so he had to push down a little, but it was there), I can see a little muscle definition in my legs, I can feel the bones above the puppies (ie chest) - they're not sticking out, but there used to be a layer of blubber there, and its shrinking.

I put my weights up for Pump - chest, legs and biceps last night - from 2 kilos to 5. It killed me, and I struggled with the bicep track, but I'm not dropping them back.

Kiss my ass negative co-worker - I'm going to fucking make it.

I think I worked myself a little bit to hard last week. Monday I was feeling okay, biked to work, did a jam class, biked home, but by the time I got there was feeling really crappy and blocked up. Tuesday, biked to work, but felt like shit, so skipped combat and biked home. Wednesday felt a lot better - so biked to work, did a Pump class then my 20 minutes on the crosstrainer, then biked home. Thursday I was sick again. Grrrr. So skipped my trainer, and got my hair cut. Did another pump class yesterday and biked again - but skipped the cardio. Don't feel to bad today, but my eating has been a little out of control this week. The Pandyr is back on days (after three weeks of nights) so hopefully this week will be a bit more organised.
