We didn't really celebrate anything for Aussie day this year...usually we have a BBQ with friends but decided to spend the day together and not do anything.
Our decision was mainly due to spending 2 days of the long weekend out for lunch on Saturday and then all afternoon at a friends house yesterday.
So relaxing was what we wanted to do.
So these past few weeks we have pretty much stuck to the eating plan with only a couple of days of eating away from the plan.At the BBQ yesterday it was BYO meat so we marinated some chicken in sweet chilli overnight and took that...was delish and the salads that we had with it while wernt diet friendly still satisfied.
The main thing we are not getting into is the exercise side of things...we KNOW we have to do it and we always talk about it but it never seems to happen.This week WILL be the week to kick start our exercise regime.
This eating plan is working for us and is easy to stick to so we will continue it no problems for the 12 weeks of the programme and see what happens after that.
Well we have been following the CSIRO wellbeing diet now for a week and i think this is something we can follow from now on.
We are meat eaters and with this we are able to have it everyday.
Rob also LOVES bread etc and we are allowed atleast 2 slices of bread everyday....so hes not missing it like he would be with a low carb eating plan.
The first few days we were a bit hungry but now its easy....tho i think i will add a few extra things into robs eating plan as there arent quite enough calories for him and in the afternoon he feels a bit hungry before dinner.
As far as excercise went it was pretty poor..I did manage to get on the Wii Fit once this week which was great as it was collecting dust.Walking we didnt achieve like we wanted.Long hours for both of us meant getting home to late > i know its not a good excuse but it sounds good to me hahaha
I must say tho i did park my car futher away so i did get about 20mins walking in everyday so atleast it was something.
So this week is going to be another great week
The 12 week challenge on We Are Slimming starts...And today i got ourself organised
I did a MASSIVE shop which included what we needed for the week and also cupboard items that we will need all the time.
Tonight we took out measurements and before pics....so here they are
OMG so not going to look like this in 12 weeks :)
I just realise my belly button isnt even inline with the middle lol
ok so in 4 week i will take more pics to compare
If you arent already on We Are Slimming then you should pop over and take a look.
We are about to start a 12 week challenge for weightloss.
I started getting myself organised today with a big clean out of the cupboards and fridge and have made a list of everything that we need to get started.
We are going to follow the CSIRO wellbeing diet which goes for 12 weeks which is perfect length of time for this challenge.
It been rather uplifting having a clean out of everything that we dont need....its also removed the temptation to eat and snack on the foods that arent good for us. DH HATES throwing food out as he sees it as a waste and would rather eat it...but this is why hes at the weight he is (myself included) so hes going to have to get over that otherwise this will never work for him and i will always be hearing that he needs to lose weight he feels like shit etc etc.
I will be blogging all the time (new years resolution) as i think that its the only way that im going to keep myself on track.
I will also be updating with measurements and monthly photos..
Ok so instead of writing a big essay on whyat i did this year i will put a few pics up instead....hope you enjoy
