Well i am very keen for weigh in tuesday nite! My pants are getting much looser...i even tried on a pair of size 18 katies jeans today (skinny leg jeans!) and they did up!!! They are too tight to wear out but there wasnt even a chance of zipping them up previously.

Gymmed it last nite...did a kick boxing class....body attack and 30 minutes on the treadmill. Then today i did a double PT session. As part of the foxy challenge had to see how many situps u can do in 60 seconds....i managed 34...which JUST scraped me into the "excellent" category for my age group....woo hoo! We did some weights/VipR stuff and climbed the bloomin stairs. While fiona was massaging me....nore (my physio) came over and talked to me and fiona about what i can and cant more climbing stairs 2 at a time....or climbing down all 7 flights....just going up one stair at a time....we can now start to jumps...not on to steps just on the ground....ultimately working towards skipping .... not so sure how i feel about that LOL. But its all about getting my alignment fixed so in time i can hopefully do all those things.

I still have this dreaded cold...its not overly bad....just makes me not 100% and more annoying then anything.

Hope everyone has a good day!

Weighed in body fat stayed exactly the same as last 40.5% and i lost 100 grams...must admit i was disappointed....i was hoping for 600 grams...but considering i went away over the weekend...have a cold and am taking codral and in the midst of TOM i cant really complain i guess.

Gymmed it tonite...did a orbit (fitball) class and 30 minutes cardio. Tomorrow nite im doing kickbox...body attack...body balance.

Im still battling this bloody sore sure yapping at work isnt helping it! plus im just exhausted :( was in bed at 9.15pm last nite (and asleep) and up at 5.45am...i have thursday and friday off....with thursday having a sleep in .... so at least i can catch up a bit in a day or two. Not much else going on.....have a good nite all!

My trip to Sydney :)

Well i am home (with a lovely cold) from Sydney and i had a fabulousssssssssssssssssssssssssssss time!!! I went over friday the time i got to my hotel (the flight was delayed 25 minutes) it was got into bed and watched a bit of tv. Saturday morning i was up bright and early...wandered down to circular quay for breakfast....then caught the ferry over to Manly....wandered around there for a hour or two..real nice beach....they have a lil market so went thru there too and stopped in at lots of lil shops as well..was nice and leisurely and then caught the ferry back to circular quay and walked back to my hotel room for a nanna nap! LOL. I met fiona and sarah at 4.30pm...we wandered over to darling harbour for dinner...i was very good here and had lasagne (they had carbonara on the menu but decided to behave myself! lol) we then wandered over to the circular quay (we wont mention the trillion steps fiona managed to fin in the process *rolls eyes*) and then we were there ready to climb the bridge! Your on the bridge for 3.5 hours but the time just flies by! I really enjoyed it. Lots of spots where its quite squeezy....and climbing up vertical ladders and of course lots of stairs....but i really enjoyed it and didnt struggle at all! Magnificent views and of course was done with some awesome company - i had a very fun evening. After the climb we then went to the Lindt Chocolate Shop!! lol...I had a iced chocolate drink - DELICIOUS!!!! And then as we were having our drink fiona pulls out a present for me...i unwrap it and its a tshirt which she had her partner design on it. (The tshirt is the last photo below)...fiona knew for me climbing the bridge was significant...and the tishirt IS significant too....the first line on the tshirt says "i dont like it" (which i consistently say in PT! lol) then it says "but i climbed it anyway, Karyn Colleys Sydney Harbor Bridge Climb 2011" - how awesome is that! I loveeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee the i have the best trainer or what???? we then headed back to the hotel (since it was midnight!). When i got into bed that nite my lil feet ached....omg i had walked so much....but was such a good day. Sunday morning we met up for some brunch (breakfast burger anyone?) and then we went for a pedicare - another first. Then wandered around a bit more before heading home.

It really was a fab weekend...very active with so much walking....i really wanna do more of these weekends....THIS is what living should be really like!

Today i went to the gym....double PT....i felt like a big ball of crap....with this cold but still did it. I did a fitness test as part of the foxy challenge....had to step up and down on a step for 3 minutes....then 1 minute later had to check my heart rate....well i scored "above average" hehe :) This arvo i am off to the gym again...not to work out tho just for a physio appointment....hopefully she says i can start walking on inclines again and maybe even jumping again...we will see what happens.

have a fab week all!

PS below is some pics from the climb as well as a photo of THE tshirt

Im backkkkkkkkkkkkkkk

I decided to come back and post here it seemed wrong posting on the other journal :)

Last week wasnt a great week in relation to weight loss. The first 4 days i was on a tim tam/chocolate/sausage roll fiesta....but i pulled my finger out on friday and altho I didnt count calories i just cut out all that crap food ;) Anyway weighed in last now using the gyms scales and obviously weighing in clothes (my scales are in ryans drawers at work to see how i go with no daily weighing) and 2 weeks ago when i weighed in on their scales i was 102.5 kilos. The good news is my body fat is the lowest its ever been at 40.5%. When i started at the gym it was around 58% so only 0.6% and i will be under 40% YAY!!! The measurements went really well too...had been 3 weeks since i was last measured....i lost 10 centimetres....5 of those centimetres of my thats all a step in the right direction.

Monday nite i burnt 1600 calories...did PT session of "killer cardio" then body combat, body jam and then walked home from the gym (70 minute walk)...last nite i did a orbit class and a RPM class and walked home from the gym again :) Tonite will be a lighter nite...30 minute kickbox class...30 minutes on the treadmill and then will walk should be home by 6.30pm which seems positively early! LOL

The trip to sydney is coming up very quickly! TWO SLEEPS!! I cant wait...a 3 day weekend plus getting away...a real break from EVERYTHING!
