FFF13

FFF week 13

Number 13 can be lucky for some, unlucky for others.  I've always considered it to be my lucky number as I've had a lot of things happen on 13th.  This week is no exception as I have finally made those horrid scales budge by  2 kilos / 4.4 pounds.  I'm doing my happy dance here. 

Guess what that was without exercising as I've had to take time off with my rotator cuffs and also been eating my head off with healthy foods of course.  So sometimes I just don't understand how my body works. Do heaps of exercises don't lose weight.....do no exercise lose weight.  I think my body does the opposite of what its supposed to do. 

We did lots of decluttering this week and managed to donate 6 bags of clothes we have grown out of to the op shop.  Wednesday was a public holiday here due to Anzac day, so I told Bear I'll take them down straight away as the car park will be quiet. There are three car spaces, so I pulled up in the front space.  Deposited our bags into the bins, hopped back in the car ready to leave.  Checked my mirrors still no one around. Put the car in reverse..... beep..... beep... beeping goes the car.  A stupid woman pulled up in my blind spot so I nearly backed into her.  I was really shaken up, drove home and confessed to Bear I nearly smashed the car thinking he would give me a lecture.  He was very sympathetic which was nice.

I hope you have all had a positive week with your FFF.

  2. Hi Lindy,

    Woo hoo on the weight loss, that is fantastic news! You have been doing so well with FFF. I don't understand it either, I think the scales should go down but they go up, then I'm convinced they must have gone up but they go down.

    Thank goodness it was a near miss in the car and not a hit!

    Hugs

    1. Oh I'm glad too Rosie. I hate to think how much damage would have been done. Then Bear would have skinned me alive.

  4. You definitely have perseverance - so very proud of you as you should be of yourself. At a certain maturity level, losing weight is not easily accomplished.

  6. I had to google Anzac Day. Got myself an education. Congrats on the decluttering and weight loss, even if it doesn't make sense right now.

    Hope your nerves are calmer after that car incident! At least no one was hurt!

  10. I have had that happen too, ( but regarless yay for you!). Sometimes I wonder if it is because I have gained muscle mass while working out (though it must be hidden somewhere) as muscle weighs more than fat. Truth be told they say 80% of weightloss comes from the kitchen, and that is where I have always found my greatest success- I LOATHE exercising...no seriously I hate it! I will shovel snow, dirt, rake, haul, but please don't make me do any form of organized exercise!!! LOL.

    Hope your success is a continuing trend.

    1. We will call it muscle mass Willie, sounds good to me. I love exercising once I am motivated. You'd get enough though with all your shovelling.
