January Pledges

Whilst my resolutions for the year have been made, I think it will be useful to start my monthly pledged again to give me some slightly more manageable challenges to be getting on with.



1: Make a meal plan every week, and base shopping lists around it.

2:Try at least one new recipe per week.

3:Go to the gym at least twice a week.

4: Half an hour o the Wii Fit every day.

5:Don't miss any more meetings.


7:I will allow myself a day off plan for my birthday but I will not let this become a birthMONTH. Back on track straight away.

8: TRACK EVERY DAY!!!! Even the binges. I need to keep doing it!

9:Make packed lunches rather than buying sandwiches at uni.

It's the end of the year as we know it!

Its resolution time!
Weight loss or otherwise there's nothing like achieving the challenges you set yourself.
SO here goes...

1: This year I will get to goal - the exact weight will be decided nearer the time as I do not yet know what I will feel happiest at, but it will be within my healthy BMI range.
2: I will complete at least the body test, if not training, on the Wii Fit Plus every day providing this is possible.
3: I will sell the clothes I have shrunk out of on ebay, or donate them to charity, as soon as they dont fit me. I wont fit them again - I will not have them hanging around the house.
4: I will pass my second year at uni with flying colours!
5: I will keep procrastination to an absolute minimum as regards Uni work, exercise, and housework.
6: I will reduce my reliance on asthma inhalers.
7: I will learn how to jog!
8: I will learn to budget and thus not live in my overdraft :s
9: I will be a good vegetarian and avoid all gelatine, animal rennet and other animal byproducts in food which I've become much to lazy about.
10: I will drink water. Lots of water. Everyday. No excuses.
11: I will keep this blog up!

Back with something akin to a vegeance!

I've been neglecting this blog of late, which is stupid because the primary reason I do it is for ME! (Not that I don't want you to like it too...)
I've had mad timetabling issues, with mad assessments and rehearsals and essays and everything and have just been so far away from teh track I couldn't even see it.
I've missed my last two WW meetings so I'm feeling very lost at sea at the moment.
Foods a bit bizarre at the moment because it's the end of term, I'm going home this weekend, and just need to use up what I've got left. Plannings gone a little out of the window. And by a little read 'It walked straight out of there'.
But now I have a plan.

I am going home on Sunday evening.
Monday shall be my clean slate.
I will write up a meal plan and go food shopping.
Everyday I will do one of my workout dvds, or if it's not too bitterly cold, go for a nice long walk.
I am aware that going to my brothers for xmas is going to be very hard- I will have little to no control over my food. However, he's pretty healthy, and vegetarian, so it shouldnt be too evil. I'll bring my paper tracker with me and do my best to write everything I eat down, even if it cant be accurately pointed.
Christmas day will be a total day off from tracking.
For the first time ever I'm celebrating xmas in a totally veggie household and will be having AWESOME FEAST TIMES.
I wont go overboard, but I'm not going to deny myself a proper treat.
Over the course of the holidays I will make a 2-4 week meal plan and shopping list for when I return to uni so I can get straight back on track.

That is a promise.
