FFF 19, STILL GOING STRONG

FFF 19 CHECK IN

Still going strong after 19 weeks although hanging on by my finger nails this week. You see my Bear loves to bake, so I suggested he bake a cake for me to take to my Friday aqua class.  Trouble with this he baked TWO,  not just one BUT two experimental cakes during the week to perfect THE cake. Why is this trouble you may ask, he wanted me to be his taste tester.  So this week has involved way to much cake.

  NO MORE CAKE! 

Monday we went for our usual adventure interstate to shop as someone had broken the toilet. OOPS!  Maybe it was all that cake. LOL! We seem to be a target in South Australia for both  bag checks and drivers aiming for us on zebra crossings.  Standing in a long line of customers it always feels like they ask us only to search our bags.  Why on earth would we spend around $100 in your shop then steal an item, its pick on the Victorians, right!

 Monday I almost tripled my step count by the time we walked here, there and everywhere.

Tuesday was my usual aqua class

Wednesday I skipped tai chi for a meet up with my local photography friends.  We had a lovely day meeting firstly for lunch, then went to our botanical gardens to take photos. Ending our day in a different café for cake and tea.

Friday another aqua class where I took Bears cake which was a huge success. Yay!  Now the girls have asked for more. 

Bear bought a new flavour of chips for us to try. Smiths Chinese Peking Duck.  After a delicious dinner which my resident chef cooked, we ate these chips with a glass of wine. Obviously our stomachs are more delicate the older we age, as we were both so sick after them.  Today I'm veging out trying to recover. Will stick to plain chips from now on and only on special occasions.

Its a long weekend here as we celebrate the Queens birthday (Queen Victoria) apparently. Hopefully the weather stays nice as we're planning a picnic Monday. 

The scales have been good again going down a fraction, which makes me happy.

Have a good weekend everyone.

  6. Your doing good, Lindy! ... altho' I dont know how you manage with a baker in the house. All your walkabouts must be keeping you on the good side of the scales.

    And speaking of cake, Queen Victora sure spread her birthday celebrations out ... our Victoria Day weekend was 2 weeks ago ;))) .... nj ... xx

    1. Thanks Minelle, I wish you lived closer to come along also. It is hard not to eat all the cake. I keep in mind all the hard work to take off the weight.

  10. I can't help but think of the fable of the Tortoise and the Hare when I read down under these days.

    "Slow but steady wins the race."

    Very proud of you, Lindy Lou!
