WW - The beach in February

I'm back on track

For the past weeks I've been thinking about getting back on track, doing my walks in the morning and just eat healthier. It's been a process to finally get off my butt and get going but I think I'm finally there, doing it one babystep at a time.

Several months ago I joined the NEWO group and was reading some of the e-mails but not really doing much else. Well, I'm still not doing everything but I'm reading more of the e-mails than before and I try to take in what I read. It seems to be a great method, since it's based on the FLY Lady philosophy and as you know, I LOOOOVE FLY Lady! According to Jonathan it's better to do some sort of exercice for 10 minutes a day than to beat yourself up doing 2 hours twice a month.

Since I didn't walk at all yesterday nor the day before that, my walk this morning was a bit longer (1 hour approx.) and part of the way I walked in the sand. I felt so proud of myself when I got back home so I decided I was worth a treat - I bought a big bottle of energy drink. Yes, a healthy treat... And I get to kill two birds with one stone - I get to spoil myself a little and I know that today I'll drink at least 1.5 liters. :-D

So proud of ME!

It's Monday morning, it's only 8 A.M. and I've been up and about for an hour already. I wanted to blog all day yesterday but every time I sat down to write something got in between, so I never had a chance to concentrate...

I know it's a bit late, it's technically Monday in my part of the world, but I'm going to do a Sunday stroll anyway. Hope that's okey, Vanessa? It' still Sunday in your part of the world...

I've been really busy last week. I got a really bad cold on Wednesday and got up on Thursday with my whole body aching. But this is really not the time to be sick, so I recurred to the magical powders sold at the farmacy *lol* I just love Frenadol! I don't know what it's called in the rest of the world but I guess you can get stuff like that everywhere nowadays. A few dosis and the cold just disappears on its' own... Well, it's not as easy as that, but almost... I spent the whole day on Friday on the coach sleeping and resting, I just got up to do my clases and then back to rest.

I was quite okey on Saturday so I got up early and did some cleaning. I had the kids clean their rooms too (those of you with teens and preteens know how easy that can be sometimes *lol*). Then we went to the supermarket far, far away. I really like to shop there, their prices are low and I feel like a get a lot for my money. The only problem is the distance. It takes us about 20 minutes to walk there, each direction, so it's not only good for the economy, it's also a great workout! *lol*

One of my best friends here has a son almost the same age as my kids so he came over on Saturday evening to play. The kids had a great time!!! When things got too noisy I took them out for a walk and then we went to the beach to kick some ball. It was such a lovely evening!!!

Yesterday was a really great day. We woke up early, went to the early mass and then the kids stayed at church for their weekly youth gathering. It's a pity so few kids these days go to church but at least they have a small group of teens going every Sunday. While the kids stayed at church I went down to the beach for a walk in the sun. It was just wonderful! I walked for half an hour and came home totally energized. I decided to chech my weight, which is something I haven't done in ages... I know I fell off the wagon big time and haven't been doing any exercise or even thought about what I eat so I was really surprised to see that I've lost 1,2 kilos!!! Wow!! I really do like that!!! *GO ME* Now I've "only" got another 8 kilos to go.... And since the weather is improving and the sun is coming back it will be a lot easier. So hopefully I'll reach my goal this year and be able to wear a bikini....
