Week 3 down!

Another week down. Spent the most of last week in Bali, I managed to get some time in the sun and stock up on all my Bali goodies. We will stop flying there soon so had to make the most of my time there. Managed to have a great week of training and nutrition although was a bit disappointed with my weigh in and measurements Monday morning. I shouldn't have really checked my weight as I had missed a nights sleep flying home from Bali plus I had my free meal Sunday night so felt pretty average on Monday morning only to have to get ready to fly to Japan. In three weeks my weight really hasn't moved much although I know that changes are happening and I just have to be patient, but it is so hard when you put in so much effort and all you want to see is a bit of a drop in the scale! Anyway I flew over to Osaka yesterday and struggled all day, I was sooooo tired and struggled to make it through the day. It wasn't my best nutrition day but I managed not to let it get out of control. I managed to do some stair climbing today and went for a long powerwalk, so feeling human again. Have got a pretty busy week ahead, I fly home tonight have Thursday of and then of to Tokyo on Friday, back on Sunday and then my nephew arrives. He is 14 and hasn't been up to visit Cairns before, so I will be taking him diving out on the reef plus some other fun stuff so it should be a great week.

Anyway enough from me, should get some rest before flying throughout the night.
Have fun! Hilds

Week 2 down!

Well week two is over and it was a bit of a challenging one. I started back at work and flew to Tokyo last Thursday. I forgot how tired I get after night flights and how hard it is to control those sugar cravings. So the week got of to a good start although after getting home at 6am on Saturday morning and only having a couple hours sleep I felt very tired for the rest of the weekend! Still managed to get all of my training in although struggled with those sugar cravings and just felt hungry all weekend! Anyway didn't do too badly although it was reflected in my weekly weigh in (no change!!!!!). Well I can only hope for a better week this week, I'm trying to stay motivated and get my nutrition spot on this week! I'm off to Bali on Wednesday and get home on Sunday so have planned all my training and nutrition to fit in. Other than work all is going well, got back into my Cert 4 in Fitness study today and slowly getting through it. The weather is pretty average up here at the moment pouring with rain now, its seems like the wet season might be coming early (so glad I've got my treadmill). Bye for now Hilds

It hurts to walk!

I'm still recovering from my leg session on Sunday. I think I must have overdone it just a little bit as I have been struggling to walk, sit (any movement really!). I've still managed to keep up my training although my usual Hill walk has been a lot harder than usual, actually managed a 5km run this arvo, it felt a bit strange at first but managed to get through it. I'm on to my second week now, managed to lose half a kilo last week, although was expecting a bit more considering what a great effort I put in with both training and nutrition (its hard work trying to get rid of all those studels and beers I had during my holidays!). I have to just keep telling myself to keep plodding along and the results with come! So anyway have been busy around the house the last couple of days. We managed to paint the last room in the house that had the original yellow walls and blue doors, its fantastic to see it finally go. I also got stuck into the garden today and well pretty much destroyed it, we have a few shrubs that just grow uncontrollable so I decided it was time to get rid of them. The garden is looking quite bare now and lots of rubbish to take to the dump tomorrow. So only one more day before I head back to work, its been great having five weeks off, I don't quite now how I'm going to cope working again!!!!! Anyway enough from me. Luv Hilds

Back on Track

Well its nearly the end of week one and so far so good. Although oh my god have I been sore this week. I started the week with Chest and Back weights and I'm only just getting over it!!!! I do love feeling sore though, it makes all the effort feel worth it. I'm currently following a nutrition plan with Sue, all is going well so far and it definitely helps me a lot being accountable to someone. I haven't deviated from my plan all week and am just deciding if I need a free meal this week. I think its going to take me a good few weeks before I feel back to normal its amazing how much blubber can creep back on after a few weeks holiday, oh well it has been great and I've enjoyed every minute of holidays. So anyway time for me to get motivated I've decided to paint the office and am going to get stuck into it. Chat soon Hilds

Last few days before I hit it hard! Have returned from camping which was lovely although didn't get up to as much as we had planned. It was quite funny actually, I realised I had left my hiking shoes behind when we were setting up camp, after a few minutes of Cam paying me out we realised he left his behind too, plus the map and water bottles. So obviously we weren't meant to go hiking! So instead I got to read Fitness mags sitting in the sun next to the river, couldn't have asked for a better day. So tomorrow we head of to Adelaide to catch up with all the family, which I am very excited about! We get back on Sunday and I will be getting right back into hard training and strict nutrition. I have already got my motivational folder ready with my nutrition and training plans. I must say though that I have had a much needed break over my holidays and have managed to re motivate myself and am excited about getting toned, fit and healthy for the new year. I hope everyone else is going well with their health and fitness journeys!

Have fun, love Hilds

Finally feeling back to normal! It has taken me a while since getting back from Austria to get my energy levels up again, but I think they're back. Have been loving my holidays though, have been catching up with friends for coffee and lots of lunches and also managed to fit in a workout each day. Haven't been doing my usual intensity but easing back into things and trying to enjoy a bit more of a relaxed routine before I hit it hard after next week. We are of camping today, its awesome weather so I'm really looking forward to it, we are planning on going of a 6 hour hike tomorrow so that's my workout covered! We are also heading of to Adelaide to visit all of the family on Thursday. Cam's and my family are all getting together for a big BBQ to celebrate our engagement so I am really looking forward to that. Anyway just a quick one today as I need to get the car packed so we can get going.
Hope everyone is going well!
Love Hilds
