Ohhh man... what.a.week..
Had to weigh myself at a different time of day this week. Didn't have access to a set of scales. I think that throws out your weekly weigh-in figures.
Anyway, I've been hundreds of kilometres away the last few days for a funeral. Throws a spanner into the works for everything that you usually do, but those things really aren't relevant in the whole grand scheme of things, especially like my 1kg weight gain this week.
You don't worry about what you eat on occasions like these, although I did try and be as good as I can, what with the little cakes and beers to cheer with that I was smashing down.
I did make sure I raised a sweat and exercised. I made sure I played extra hard with my boy as much as I could, but the sweating I put in just wasn't enough.
Is it ok to let loose every now and then? We're all human aren't we and sometimes you just feel better after a Chicken Schnitty & chips. Comfort foods.
Not good though on a weight loss challenge. Even though I've lost weight, I really want to lose more. I know just where to go as well, and that is the exercise challenge tabs that Shannan's Challenge has.
I need to rip into it and get under 80kgs. Would be great if I can do it!
Wish me luck!
PS. Happy Mothers day as well everyone. Weight loss challenges are nothing compared to the challenges of being a mother. We would be nothing without our mothers and I am ever thankful for the mothers in my own life. I can never repay my wife for all that she does, nor my own mother. So all I can do is show them how important they are to me, not just on this one day but on all days.
Thanks Mums for all you hard work!

The greeks might be the death of me.
Their damn parties with the making of delicious sugary treats! Baklava (spelling?), oh man. Insert into mouth? Yes please.
Also, damn Oporto's! Stupid, delicious spicy chicken burgers with fantastic spicy sauce. I've been really good too. It's my first fast food meal for such a long time.
I can tell you all though, that this week of the Shannan Ponton Weight Loss Challenge, I have not gained any weight!!
..err.. I also haven't lost any weight either. Yay! but.. ohh at the same time.
I would definitely put this week down as a win though. I didn't get to do my fill-in spot in my friend's social sporting team, which I put down to the main reason for shedding the kilos. My pattern on the challenge has been whenever I miss out being a fill-in, I put on weight. So, little win there and it's all about the little wins.
The challenge has helped brighten my ideas of eating habits. It has been the real kick up the arse. It hasn't however been the best motivator for doing the proper exercises. Don't think that is the fault of the challenge, moreof the fault of mine, using the excuse of "I just dont have the time".
I do have the time though to go for slightly longer works with a higher intensity, as well as longer and more active playtime with my little boy. This is what I've been doing, otherwise other things just wont get done.
I'd be much more happier to have lost weight this week, but i'm not totally bummed. Sure, I haven't got to my 75kgs goal just yet, but at 82kgs I really cant complain.
The 5 kilos I've lost so far is fantastic! Starting to fit back into my old clothes is great for my budget problems :-)
How has your weight loss been going? We're you a fat bastard like me and succumbed to the craving of take away?
Got any tips for making time to exercise properly? Love to hear from you.
