Recent pics

Recent poolside pics - taken by my son. It's funny, I feel SO huge lately, and yet, I look at the pics, and I am not. I am a little meatier than I have been but it's not ugly, it does look like I have picked up a teeny bit of muscle and yes, some fat, but overall, I look just fine.

Sometimes I just need to relax and chill - forget about my body - just be in the moment more. No one is critiquing me as much as I am with myself.

Fitness Diary Week ending 11th November 2016

This week I did something interesting. My weight has been quite high, so I decided this week to listen to when I was really, truly hungry, rather than eat to a plan. No diet. I threw out all diet plans this week.

And I actually lost a kg! I decided to just eat what I craved, but not too much of that item. So if I felt like cake, I ate a bite or two of cake. I just didn't stuff my face. I ate, tasted, bit into things - and felt satisfied. I had good energy, I felt clear and good.

Tuesday was not a good day for me, gym wise. I just crashed after a stressful weekend of moving things - but finally we are mostly moved into our house again. Phew. It's been rough.

And my waist is down to 67cm.
So I am happy.

Weight: 53.5 kg
Waist 67cm.

Fitness Diary - Friday and Saturday 28th, 29th Oct

My weight has been fluctuating - around 54/55kg. One day it's up, then down by a kg. Now to go up and down by a kg in one day shows me that a lot of it is water or something along those lines.

Energy is fantastic - today a bit low due to having a few cocktails last night. We went out for supper last night and it was lovely. I just ate and enjoyed. No worries.

The freedom to just eat and drink is lovely. I find that I don't WANT carbs - I just like sugar, really, in a cocktail.

My shoulders do seem to be growing. They look like it. My arms are fatter, yes, as I have fat overall, but I can feel my muscle glycogen stores are full, my biceps FEEL full and firm. So do all my muscles.
