Another weekend has come and go and this weekend was filled with surprises. On Saturday I had my appointment with the dietitian, which left me feeling a bit down in the dumps.

My weight has really increased the last couple of years and I knew that I had to make a plan and that I had to make it quickly before starting off with our fertility things again, so I weighed in at 63, now that might not sound like a lot, but it is a lot for someone who is suppose to weigh 48 due to my height.

So today my diet officially started and I'm sitting here feeling very hungry, because I think now that I know that I can't have all the wonderful food, now I want it.

So dear all, wish me lots of luck, because this will not be as easy for me as what it is for others, it will be the first time ever that I go on a diet, and I suppose this will have to become a healthy eating living plan.

So breakfast today was 4 tablespoons of cooked oats with a bit of milk
then morning snack will be an apple and yogurt
then Lunch will be a 1/2 cup of rice with a salad and tuna
then late afternoon snack will be 3 provitas with a cheese wedge
and supper - I don't know yet but it will involve chicken or fish a small potato and salad or something

Have a stunning week people

I'm normally not one of those people that come up with a whole list of New year's resolutions, but this year I've set a couple that I felt I really had to do.

I'm also sitting and wondering who out there have set the same type of resolutions or who have set any resolutions for the new year as I would love to link up and support those of you who have set their mind in achieving their goals.

For me the most important part of this year will be to try my utmost best to fall pregnant, and I mean try everything in my power possible, I know that it might sound stupid but I want to look back in 2012 and say that I have tried harder this year, I want to feel satisfied with my attempts and should I fall pregnant it would be the best blessing sent to us.

Okay so for my Resolution(s):

  • I have picked up some weight and I would like to blame all of it on the fertility medicines, but I also realise that I had a big part in this, so I have decided to call the dietitian today and will make my appointment with her in order for me to get back on my goal weight before attempting another cycle at the clinic
  • Hubby and I have also decided to cut down / stop drinking, and in the past we always said cut down only but we've never managed this on weekends when family and friends came over. This year we have decided to stop drinking, and will only have something if and when we really feel like it, and I have to say so far so good, we had our last champagne 12:00 on 31 December 2010, and nothing else yet.
  • and lastly - both of us decided to start gym, now this is kind of a tricky one as most of the gyms in our area close when we get home or it's so full that you wait forever to get to something, so honestly we will not hit the gym at our local gym but we will officially start using the huge gym hubby bought 2 year ago (ya we will have to get rid of all the dust on this first :-) but we will officially start using the gym)
So these are my New Year's resolutions and I hope I'll / we'll manage to look back the end of this year and realise that we have achieved our goals.

Happy 2011 People, May this year be the year where all you hopes and dreams come true!
