Another little loss

I suppose that 0.4 is better than nothing but I have to admit that when I got off the scale and she said “Well done” and I saw what was written in my book I was more than a little miffed. Then when I thought about it on the way home, I realised that if I am not giving my weight loss effort 100% each week, I really can’t complain about not having bigger losses. More good days that bad days does not constitute a good enough effort for a big weekly loss. More slack days than exercise days does not constitute a good enough effort for a big weekly loss therefore I must shut up and either give it 100% or be happy with whatever I lose. So, with that change of attitude I was actually happy with my 0.4 which takes me to a total loss of 3.2kgs in 4 weeks – not fantastic but certainly a hell of a lot better than putting on 3.2kg with a couple of weeks to go to Christmas.

I have been finding that I am letting little things get me down – things that I used to be able to shake off and not worry about are starting to worry me and I need to change how I deal with these situations. I know that I should only worry about things I can change – and accept the things which I can’t and stop worrying about them.

Tonight we are going to Outback Spectacular http://outbackspectacular.myfun.com.au/The-Show.asp - the whole fandamily – us, in-laws, aunts – anyone related. It is supposed to be a really good show (and for the price you wouldn’t expect anything less) but I have to say that I am really not in the mood to go. Maybe it will be one of those situations where once you get there you have a great time even though you didn’t want to go in the first place – at least that is what I am banking on happening !!!!

Thursday will see us off to K’s new school to buy her uniforms for next year – she is very excited, although rather anxious at the same time. I guess it is a huge step for a 15 year old to make – after 10 years of studying and being taught a certain way to change and be taught and have to study a different way probably isn’t going to be an easy thing to do but I am sure that she will be fine. On Friday night we went to Speech Night and she was awarded Academic Honours for Semester 2 and came first in Spanish for the whole year which as you can imagine, made us very proud parents.

I will be happy when Christmas is over – all the celebrations are starting to get to me and I guess that is another thing making it so difficult to stay focused and on track with what I am eating – teachers bringing in boxes of biscuits and chocolates to say thank you for all we do for them, more Christmas and birthday functions than you can poke a stick at plus a big wedding anniversary coming up with lots of celebrating happening then – not sure if I need the medal or A needs it !!! Maybe we both deserve one !!

Have a great hump day tomorrow and take care.

Update : We went to the show last night - what a fantastic time we had. I can highly recommend it to anyone coming to the Gold Coast. We all had such a great time - Kaitlin and I had the vegetarian option but the eye fillet that the others had looked like it was going to melt in their mouths. We all cheered, clapped, stomped our feet and waved our 'yeeha' hats throughout the show and generally had a great evening out. Thank goodness I didn't pike out and not go at all !!!!!!!!!!!!

Sometimes it is good to go somewhere - even when you dont want to - as you can be pleasantly surprised. I really should take this advice too as Mark wants to go away for a weekend with friends but I am so self concious that I don't want to go anywhere. I am sure if I went though - that I would have a lot of fun.

K's new school sounds fantastic and I hope she enjoys these holidays before she goes there and gets stuck into her school work. She is such a great girl - congratulations to her, and to you guys, for her excellent results this year.

You are doing a great job Linda - keep it up... Have a wonderful Christmas.
