2017

I kinda missed the whole end of 2016 post thing, not that I usually do one, or did anything majorly significant last year that I hadn’t already blogged about. So I thought I’d skip it and move right on to 2017. 🙂

I have no hard set goals in 2017, new years resolutions are not really my thing. I suck at goal setting! However I do have some general goals that I would like to try and achieve. Firstly, I would like to blog more – mainly to just have a journal of my life, how I’m feeling, progress on power lifting, and just general thoughts. I have no “schedule” for that, however I do have an idea that is going to help me with another goal, which is…. drum roll! (Not that it’s exciting!) read more

I hate making post titles

I’m so uncreative. So many people probably wonder why I even have a blog. The reason is because I like to talk, even if it’s essentially just to myself!

I’m just writing a little update on life, which will include my weight loss journey and uni so far. 🙂

My weight loss journey is actually going really well. In June I attempted to do Junk Free June, but my own version of it – which was just to try and cut out as much sugar as I could. Not entirely – I have a slight sugar addiction and didn’t want to end up cranky and yelling at everyone. But I only had maybe one teaspoon of sugar on my oats, on one day, or I had a normal coffee from the cafe instead of a flavored one (we don’t have sugar free syrups in NZ like many American Starbucks do). I think I did well. I would say I slipped up a couple of times – having a slice of cake or an energy drink because I just wanted to feel happy on that day. Nothing negative happened, just letting myself down a little on those days. read more

Another go at weight loss

As I write this, I’m consuming some pre-workout. It’s not really needed, but I thought I’d give it a shot to see what it does.

Here I am, writing another weight-loss post. But this time I’ve been at it for around 50 days (well, tracking *most* of my food on MFP for 50 days ish).

I have lost weight, although I do not know how much as I didn’t jump on the scales when I began. However, the last time I was at the doctor she was I was over 120kg. Which is what I weighed the last time I weighed myself. read more

Green Smoothie!

I talked last week a little about my new George Foreman Mix-n-go (whatever it’s called). This week I took pictures while I made a smoothie! I wanted it to be all fancy how you see those recipe bloggers do it. But I’m not a fancy recipe blogger. I’m not even a fancy blogger. I am Fancy though. Jokes.

Anywhere. Here are some not so fancy photos:

Ingredients I used
Ingredients I used (minus the berries)

The ingredients I used were:

  • Half a lemon juice
  • a green kiwi fruit (I don’t like golden)
  • almond / coconut milk (I buy it pre mixed together, saves space!)
  • two bobby bananas
  • Plain yogurt. Which is actually very sweat and I should of gotten Greek instead
  • Kale
  • Celery
The mess I made
The mess I made

The main thing I hate about making smoothies is the mess I make. It’s not even that bad of a mess! But I dislike cleaning. 🙁 read more
