Happy New Year!

Happy new year everyone and I hope 2010 is going to be a cracking year for all of us.
I dont set resolutions but this year am determined to live healthier and happier than ever before.

The last couple of days has seen a slow down in the exercise regime. I went to Perth with the family on NYE and then spent yesterday (NY day) at Adventure World. I did get some exercise - climbing the stairs to the water slides carrying mats or tubes! We also walked around the park and of course did some swimming. I had a chicken roll for lunch and heaps of fruit.

Can I also say that I felt so happy and healthy and comfortable in my bathers yesterday. Most times I cover up and wear shorts and tee shirts. But yesterday I was happy confident and comfortable. Its amazing what 15cm will do!

NYE was a slight indulgence with more protein than I probably needed. I had some steak and some prawns but it was very nice. I made sure I kept up the water, salads and was selective with the carbs.

I have been eating a proper breakfast no matter what I have been doing.

I am heading off camping for a week tomorrow so I wont be able to post. But I will be making conscious decisions about the types of food I eat. We will also be walking and swimming alot - and generally having lots of fun...thats always good for the soul and overall health.

When we get home I have 2 weeks before Mike starts work and we wont be going away again so I can really cement routines and meals.

I feel great! And I hope you do too :)


  1. Bring on 2010 Gilly... I just know it going to be a great one for you.

    Happy camping!

  2. You are sounding very positive Gilly which is great to hear. Hope you have fun camping.

  3. I just popped in for the first time in your new blog. Wow, you are on a tough, but good way. I wish your good luck for this! And also all the best for all the other things in 2010.

    Camping could be easier for a diet, because you have lots of distraction. Have fun!

  4. Happy New Year Gilly!!

    Have fun camping!
