Battle of the Blogger Butts Week 9

Farmers Wifey has been very naughty this week. We've had a birthday in the family and there's been a little too much chocolate cream cake eaten.

I just couldn't help myself. It was delish. I'm quite scared to weigh myself.

I can't seem to find that zest I had when I was into it, 3 years ago.

I can't get in the zone.

I remember perfectly how strong I felt. How motivated. I just had to start.

I lifted weights in front of the mirror at the gym, with rippling muscles (oh yes), a trim waist, and fire in my eyes.

I need to find that again.


Because I know how powerful it made me feel.

Start 70.5 kg
Week 1 69.7 kg
Week 2 69.9 kg
Week 3 69.3 kg
Week 4 69.9 kg
Week 5 70.3 kg
Week 6 70.1 kg
Week 7 68.7 kg
Week 8 68.6 kg
Week 9 68.9 kg

Great visualisation!! Have you tried listening to the same music you used to work out to??

The cream cake sounds yummy, and evidently didn't do that much damage! Motivation is really tough - and sustaining the weightloss program is something I'm struggling with.

I had to laugh at Cate's comment - whenever I hear certain songs I can visualize and remember some jazzercize-type moves from a class I used to I sit in my chair! Somehow, the old songs don't help me - not to say they wouldn't help others!

When you find it pass it on to me please!! I kind of found a little spark of it this week but then still felt so tired afterwards....

Yummo, the cake sounds delicious.

If you find the secret to finding some determination, please share, I need some. In the meantime... cake, YUM!

It is a little known fact (or maybe something I made up -you decide), that chocolate cream cake when consumed during a birthday week contains zero calories. So feel no guilt!

I find the hardest part with working out is the getting started part! Good luck - I think you'll find it soon!

Tracy said...

I like Jane's theory! You'll find that determination and in the meantime, we'll be here to help you!

Hey, at least you're headed in the right direction. That's more than I can say at the moment! I usually find my motivation when I go try on clothes. :)
