Changing it up again (no Weigh in Wednesdays anymore)

I bet you’re probably getting sick of my weight loss journey and mental health posts. Or maybe not. Maybe you enjoy someone sharing the raw truth about just how bloody hard this is. Maybe you enjoy getting a peek into someone’s struggles and triumphs, and the rollercoaster ride that is. Or maybe you just enjoy reading about someone’s life and comparing it to your own. Whatever it is, you’re here reading.

Here’s another step in my journey for you to read.

A few weeks ago I started posting about my weight and mental health status on Wednesdays. I called it “Weigh in Wednesday”, the most non-unique name on the planet. [...]  read more

April 52-in-52 update

It’s been a bit of a crazy week for me this week – I had a lot on work-wise, and on Wednesday I spent the entire day at the zoo with Luca. By the time night rolled around I didn’t have time to spend in front of a screen. As a result I didn’t get to post my weigh in Wednesday post, and I’ve not had a chance to post it since.

I was going to write it now, but given the next one is due in 3 days, I figure I’ll combine them both together. To weigh-ins in one. Woo.

Instead I figured that tonight I’ll share an update on my 52 list and how the past 4 months have been. [...]  read more

Wednesday weigh-in: 3rd April

I have some good news to share today – hooray! And some not-great news, but definitely better-than-it-was news.

Here’s how my week went:

Weight:

Last week I weighed in at 86.8kg, this week I’m 85.8 – an even 1kg loss for the week. It could have been better, I didn’t have a great week food wise (will get into that soon), but it’s better than it has been.

I’m super happy with that result.

Binge eating

You guys, I was on a 9 DAY (!!!) streak, and then I broke it. I don’t think I binged in the traditional sense, it wasn’t a robotic “shove as much food in my mouth as I can” phase. The problem was I had enough bad food grazed over the course of the day that I decided I just wasn’t comfortable considering it a “successful” day. I didn’t want to reward myself for that behaviour. [...]  read more

Wednesday weigh-in – 27th March

It’s time for some accountability. Every Wednesday I’m going to try to do a quick blog post with an update on the increase or decrease of weight, and most importantly, how the binge eating is going. It’s a “weigh in” in the sense of weighing in on how things are going; not so much the weight being the most important thing (it’s not). And hey, alliteration is cool right?

As I confessed recently on my Facebook page I recently relapsed with my binge eating. It was creeping on me since before Christmas, and after another reality check this year I was back to old ways. [...]  read more

Life update – Potter Head Run Club and injuries

Oh hey world! It’s been a while, hasn’t it. I’ve been living a crazy busy life again, and if there’s something I’ve learned since having kids is that there’s never time for everything. You’re forever playing the juggling game and figuring out which one you can get away with not giving any attention to and hope you don’t drop anything.

It turns out I’m not great at juggling and I’ve been dropping balls (ha – that sounds rude).

There’s so much that I want to write about in detail, but it’s a rare night that I have the time to sit down and blog. I don’t think I’ll get time to write in detail, so here’s a speedy recap of everything going on in my life. [...]  read more
