Let’s Measure This Groove!

OK. So I know it is Wednesday. I did weigh in yesterday but did not get around to trying on old clothing over the weekend to see what archived gems I can now wear again. I will get around to it when I am not so busy exercising! ūüôā So, the weigh in. Another great …

The Expanding Wardrobe Groove

One great thing that I have noticed over the course of my recent weight loss is that a few¬†favourite garments that had been packed away are now being moved back into my general wardrobe. It can be surprising how a garment used to feel when attempting to wear it, then changing my mind and packing …

Grooving to Success!

OK, so I know it has been a little while since I blogged. No need to worry – I have just been so busy exercising! Not 7 days a week of course, but with my lard-busting buddy at least 3 days a week and I am seeing some great results! The days I don’t work …

The Trail-Blazing Groove

So, myself and my lard-busting buddy have been walking 3 days a week on the trail for a good few weeks now. I can say that I have lost – as at last week’s weigh-in – a total of 6kg or 13.2 pounds. Not too bad! Can’t wait for this week’s weigh! Last night’s walk …

The Groovy Trail

Well after 2 walks on the Anniversary Trail with my lard-busting buddy, I can say that I have lost 1.4kg in the last week! And that was on top of a somewhat indulgent weekend. The deal we made Thursday of last week was to walk three times a week after work – Mondays, Wednesdays and …

A Groovy Lard-Busting Buddy

I’ve done it. Got myself a lard-busting buddy. We made a pact to walk 3 nights a week¬†– Monday/Wednesday/Friday. No excuses to not make it. Other than death or serious illness/unjory of course. We start tomorrow night! She lost 30 kilos walking a trail near where we both used to work. I want to lose …

The ‘Special Event’ Groove

Hmmm. I have a wedding coming up very soon. I thought I would have had a lot more time to “prepare” for this, but due to a major family illness on one side of the bridal party, it’s been decided that May 1st is the ‘go’ date as a parent may not live much longer …

Undermining The Groove?

Some days I feel like the reason I have not achieved my goals, after years of making and starting plans, is that I am secretly undermining myself. Thyroid issues aside. Not remaining focussed, not remaining committed, not remaining motivated and enthusiastic and energetic. Deep down, I wonder if I am scared to succeed because of …

Falling Off The Groove

I¬†know it has been a very long time since I was last on here. I realised after a¬†very short absence¬†that I was somewhat being slack or distracted, and that I needed to get back on here. I made myself a note regarding ‘falling off the groove’ and ensuring one gets right back on. Clearly I …

A Fluid Groove

I know, it’s just mid-afternoon on Monday 7th June‚Ķ I can’t even say I was busy over the weekend, because I really wasn’t… Well, Saturday wasn’t a totally unexpected figure. It went up. 92.8. But given the non focussed week I had, and I think a little fluid retention in there too, I can’t act …
