I have been slack and not organised

Hi everyone, I have been slack with the blogging - smack on the wrist for me.!!! Had a personal health issues a few weeks ago which have sorted itself out. and that had me off the rails abit with my WW journey. Now an update on what is happening. Didn't weigh in last week as I had a meeting after work. I think I might outline how I am going in topics. Food -well the food is probably 70% okay. I find that I am not organised at present. Mornings are hard as I walk and then come home and have a cat nap before work and then I am running late. I need to sort that out and/or take cereal to work and have it when I arrive. I am going to cook a few meals tonight and freeze them as I find that some nights it is just too rushed and I am not eating as well as I should, if I have food in the freezer that just needs to be reheated I shouldnt go off the tracks. Exercise - I am still walking with Libby in the mornings for 45 minutes and I walk for 70 minutes one night a week with Gill, normally Wednesday after WW. So I am pleased with how this is going. I have decided I just dont have time for anymore exercise at this point in time. Latter in the year I may join a gym. I have heard a rumour that a gym is opening where the new Woolworths supermarket is being built at Glenelg which is near where I catch the tram to work - so that is apparently happening in September 2009 and I may wait until then and perhaps get a special deal. No doubt it probably will be a fitness first. I find that exercising with a friend is not only social but a good way to exercise. My overall attitude is reasonably good I suppose, the last few days I have felt a bit out of sorts but I am sure that is because I have been slack with the tracking and not being rigid enough with my food - reasonably good is not enough - I need to be good all the time and when I am not as good as I should be those negative thoughts come in. I saw a photo the other day - and it was a SHOCKER and made me realise that carrying 46 extra kilos is just not good enough. Alright I could be better, I could have better weight losses but I am not prepared to give up. I love my meetings and leader and am prepared to go the distance I think I just need a bit more planning in the next few weeks and a good weight loss to just keep me going. Easter is fast approaching but I am not worried. I will try and make some really great meals that I am going to throughly enjoy and that way the meals will be the treats. I am not into Hot Cross Buns so that isnt a problem and shouldnt be given any chocolate unless it comes from work so I should be right. Whilst writing this blog, it occurred to me that I just need to do the following:
  1. Go back to basics
  2. Track
  3. Water consumption
  4. Right mental attitude
  5. Walking (perfect at present).
The right mental attitude is the key to this whole weight loss journey. Tina in her blog is a classic example of this and her results speak for themselves. So I am going home tonight, to plan and organise my food. Hopefully, probably at the weigh in after next the results will speak for themselves. My WW buddy Karen isnt going to WW anymore but I am settled in my meeting and want to prove to myself that I can do this. I am sad that she isnt going but she has stuff she needs to organise before she can even attempt WW. Enough of me. I will post my food intake for the day on tomorrow's blog. I love any comments you may have, as they help and inspire me. I am going tonight review Tina's blog - I love that girl in that she is really in the zone and can understand her attitude. The journey is full of ups and downs but one that I can do.

You can do this Martine. If I can do it anyone can.

You have blown me away with your comments about me. I can't explain why it has clicked this time. I think this is the 4th or
5th time I have joined ww. What I do know is the fact I am in the zone. I am following a plan and I am exercising.

You are doing so well with your exercise. Now you just have to get your head into the right space with the food and it will all fall into place.

I am loving the support and friendships I have made on this journey and there are many I look up to so maybe come and join our 150+ thread on the ww forums. There are some incredible stories there.

You will get there Martine. You haven't given up and that is the key. To never give up!!
