Who am i?

My photo
I'm a wife and a mother of 4. I began my 'journey' at 149+ kilos. 8 weeks ago i finally broke the magical barrier of 130 that had confounded me for so long and weighed in at 129.2. Stupid me though, i self sabotaged again and let family issues close me off to the world and i am now 134.6 again and rareing to do anything it takes to get back into new territory.

Challenge - wk 3 and 4

(Sorry, combining two weeks....i was being slack)

Start weight 128.3kg
1st weigh in 127.8kg
2nd weigh in 126.1kg
3rd weigh in 125.8kg
4th weigh in 125.3kg

I had a loss of 300g in week three and a loss of 500g in week four which gives me a total loss of 3kg in 4 weeks. Nothing to be sneezed at.

Exercise....how did that go?
Exercise was not an issue. I've been consistantly exercising 4-5 days a week and we did a boxing bootcamp during week 3. Boy o boy, i loved it. Once i'm smaller and therefore (the required) light on my feet, i think it may be something i look into.
No problems here

Nutrition....how did that go?
Not the best. All was fine in week 3 until my daughter won her Grand Final and i decided to join in the celebrations. In short, i had a few beers. The next step - of course, 3 slices of pizza. I knew i shouldn't have had them but i listened to that devil voice on my shoulder. The one that said....Go on, you burned 700+ cals with 2 hours of boxing bootcamp. You've been good with your cal budget all day and your weightloss is going great... Stupid voice. Stupid me for listening. I'm lucky to have lost 300g 2 days later.
This past week has been harder. I have had to fight everything. There have been victories and ther have been defeats but what is really getting me down is the mental struggle i have had to deal with this week. My mood has been all over the place - not helped at all by TTOTM. I can be a misery guts in the morning when i wake up all swollen and bloated and then flying high in the arvo when the water has kicked in and i've piddled away all the excess fluid and i feel thin (usually determined by how my face and hands feel)
I'm hoping for a better week 5. The first 2 days have only been so-so.

Motivation....how did that go?
Great up until beer and pizza on That Sunday. My mojo was really low until Tuesday morning and it was time for the dreaded weigh in. After registering a loss (miracle) my mojo was in top form again, but that only lasted the rest of the day. The rest of week 4 was hit and miss. I know mojo is not always flying the flag so as long as i can keep pushing on anyway, i guess thats a good thing.

I don't really have a wrap up of the 2 past weeks. I'm lucky i have even blogged it. As you can see from the shared blog i didn't even manage that last week.
Wish me wind to blow the clouds away and let the sun shine through (OMG so corny )
