The way we roll......topless and sassy down under for FFF16

FFF week 16  check in

I bet that heading whet your appetite to read what happened. LOL!


My theory of last week went down the gurgler, you can't have you cake and eat it too, without consequences.  Waaah!  The delicious cake Bear made for my birthday  was one minute on my lips a life time on my hips. It caught up with me.... BUTt.... it was so worth it, you only have a birthday once a year.  So why not over indulge eating whatever your heart desires.



I'm about ready to shoot my scales,  I'm sure they're conspiring against me.   Why are they like a  yoyo all the time, frustrating! I want to be like all the skinny girls you see who can eat anything and everything, never put on any weight what so ever.

Well this was how I was feeling, until a very wise blogger, who blew in on the wind told me that you don't know the story behind those skinny girls.  She said they may be having health issues, therefore not able to put on weight.

This made a lot of sense, thank you for that advice, so now  I AM trying my hardest to be happy in my own skin.  Some days this is easy others not so much,  Bear says he loves me like this, which is very sweet of him.  Only trouble is he enjoys baking too much, so seems whenever I'm trying to stick to a healthy eating plan he wants to make cakes and biscuits.

Did my title for this weeks FFF catch your eye?

I've done really well exercise wise this week with two sessions of aqua aerobics and one session of Tai Chi.

This is where the title is heading.  On Wednesday we all arrived for our Tai Chi class to find the room like a freezer.  BRRR!  So there was no TOPLESS Tai Chi that day, we all kept our windcheaters on to keep warm.  Haha all your  minds were heading in a different direction admit it. Can you imagine a group of women in their 40s up to mid 80s, with  one guy in the class doing Tai Chi topless.  The guy would be in his element, I think he would have a stroke. Sorry if this disappointed you.  LOL!

I've also done heaps of steps to my standard anyways, not as many as our Fondles manages. 

No decluttering as been way too busy.


No binge sitting, so that is a good thing, thanks Abby for that idea.




Next week back to eating healthy snacks. NO MORE CAKES!



Gee it is so chilly here and its not even winter yet. We've had to swap our wardrobes around, put away our summer clothes, brought out our winter clothes.  Also started wearing thermals this early, what's winter going to be like?  My favourite part is wearing my beautiful scarves again. Think I may have to brave up to come visit all of you bloggers in warmer climes. Or you can send some heat my way, maybe we can compromise I'll send you some cooler days, if you send me some warmer days. 

Have a good weekend everyone.

  2. Hi Lindy, well dang,I was counting on your theory lol. I'm in trouble then!

    Sometimes you do need to indulge. I may be doing some exercise but really need to avoid the swet stuff more. I feel your frustration with the scales. They fluctuate all over the place! As I've said before though, that is only part of the story.

    Yep, you got me with the title lol. You are doing so well with your goals. Congratulations on a good week :)

    Hugs

  3. Sounds like you're doing it right. You have to have a little cake to make it all worthwhile. I know cold weather makes me want to curl up somewhere and eat so I hope you do that better than I would.

  5. Sounds like you're still doing great, Lindy ... altho' I don't know how you do it with a baker in the house.

    Bundle up and enjoy scarf season. The best part of winter is when I can pull out all my pashminas ... so cosy and colourful! ... nj ... xx

  6. You have to have treats sometimes, Lindy, or dieting just becomes a miserable chore, destined for failure. Don’t feel bad about a few slices of cake! Sorry you couldn’t do your Tai Chi topless last week!

  7. I will start with saying that you are doing a great job on the exercising, and the good of that will show up on the scale soon.

    Lately, when I bake, I give away whole lots of it to various friends and family, so that there isn't too much sitting on the kitchen counter. Sweets are the most unforgiving thing for me and my scale. I cheated a lot while off on a visit, and then paid my dues when I got home.

    Sending Hugs Down Under,

  11. oh that title! what a tease! i get in the steps that i do only because i have a ton of errands to run, trust me. if i didn't have things to do i'd be sitting at home in front of the lappy all day. so it isn't really by choice - in a way i guess it forces me to get up and move!

    and also - never apologise for cake. you can diet next week!

  12. Winter! I keep forgetting we are always opposite. I'm so ready for some heat and some summer. Tell Bear to stick with carrot cake for awhile. That way you'll both be happy. He can bake and you can get your daily veggies through cake!

  13. Like Amy, it's hard to imagine that you are going into winter as things get hotter here. A birthday only comes once a year, so I am glad you enjoyed.

  14. Hi Lindy, :) LOLLLL about Charlene taking serious aim!! HA! That's one solution for sure!

    I'm glad that you enjoyed your birthday cake, as birthdays are well worth celebrating. Your Bear always sounds like such a wonderful cook/baker! You can be like Charlene ^! LOL!

    So happy that you are looking at the warm side of things, and will enjoy wearing your scarves! Stay cozy! (I am guessing that Bear can help you to stay even cozier!) :) Many hugs,

    ❤️Katie xoxo 🧣
