Still here....

I have once again let life get in the way of blogging. I am still here, I have been reading about you all-on my iphone,on the bus!! So not so great for commenting.

My weight is exactly the same-up and down about 200gms for the last 2 weigh ins. Feel like I am entering a better eating phase, have been making better choices and thinking about the process more.My band seemed extremely loose last week, but this week after some massive exercise on Sunday, I am tight!

So I know you're asking-what's with the massive exercise??-well of course it was a biking feat of extreme madness! Ride up our highest local point with 2000 other crazy cyclists! And done-another goal checked off the list,Photo of me at the top to follow. It was after I got to the summit,that I found I could drink(thank goodness) but doubt I could eat anything. So I was on the powerade for the next 35 kms of hill riding-total of 50 km. Just loving the biking right now.


Other things are going on in the house as well right now-teenage daughter is having dizzy spells and not eating, so having to monitor that right now,her BMI is 18.6 and every one is commenting how much thinner she is looking, so she has just had bloods done.There are a few bugs going around at the moment,hubby is not well,so hoping that is all it is-it's a hard age 14 yrs.

My son has applied to a US soccer recruiting firm, to maybe get a College scholarship to a US college, and found out he was successful in passing the first step, so you never know ,watch out you girls-he maybe coming to a college near you,lock up your daughters, and of course I will have to visit,so bring it on!!

Work is busy-flu season is about to begin,I am jabbing everyone who walks near me, so be warned...

Must go and attend to tea-I had forgotten how therapeutic it is to blog , Hope you all had a great weekend:)

Off the wagon....

Well its now March . that means dry February is over for me!!So Thursday night, I went out with the girls, had 2 glasses of wine, made good food decisions and was pleased with how restrained I was. Then came last night- I drank a bottle of wine and ate 3 pieces of pizza-and I have a massive hangover today. My head is pounding, I'm even a little nauseated-WTF!! OK, I think the deal is, I can have a drink but right now,it can't be wine, I do find it hard to have one glass.I am able with all other alcoholic bevvies to have one, so so be it.That's the plan, and I feel good about it. This attitude is a NSV for me, If I mucked up in earlier times, I would just throw the towel in and continue to eat badly, but now I can get myself back on track without doing too much damage:)(it even hurts to smile)

Weigh in day was yesterday, even though I have been good and ridden etc I gained 200 grams-96.5kg.So not especially happy about that.I have really good restriction most of the time at present,so I just need to use it.

I am pleased with how my bike riding is going, my back is hanging in there,loving my new bike to bits. I haven't been doing much other exercise though, a few arm weights at the gym, so really need to start up my walks again-stopped over summer.

I have been catching up on my reading of all your blogs, I am trying to comment but have run out of time so know I am still here and will get there.So have a good weekend:)
