Did you stick to them?

 
A few weeks back I was thinking about my long forgotten
new years resolution.
The one about losing weight.
You can read it here if you want.
New months resolution? What was I thinking!!
Anyway...
It all started out really well back in January, and even February wasn't so
bad...for a few days.
Now it's mid August and I can definitely tell you I did
not stick to it at all.
nope.
I gained two pounds instead since then!
Time for a change I think.
 
Luckily there are these two great girls who've decided to do a weekly
link up, to motivate, inspire and get fit.
Raven and Kristen, I can't thank you enough!
 
 
So I am ready to lose those two pounds,
Oh yessss,
followed by a whole lot more!
 
My starting weight is: 78.5 kg = 173 pounds
EEEEEEKKK!
 
So this week I am planning to get a whole lot more active.
Hello treadmill, remember me?
I'll also we watching what I eat and track my food intake / calories
and I'll definitely be eating a lot of these
 
 
I made this salad earlier this week and was surprised with how well the fruit and veg
go together. This salad had lettuce, one tomato, cucumber, tinned mandarins, blueberries
and black berries. It was so YUMMY I made another the next day.
 
 
This salad contains lettuce, red pepper, avocado, mandarins, black berries, blueberries,
croutons and king prawns. Soooooo good!
 
So here we go (again)
I'm hoping I will feel as optimistic as I do now
this time next week.
(And a few pound lighter!)

Writing a food diary really helps to keep track of what you're eating and to identify the bad things, or the snacks you eat without even realising it at the time! Best of luck xx
