Skinny Missions and AnD dreams

I had my first AnD dream the other night.  I'm not sure that is a good thing, I think I need to spend more time away from the computer.   Anyhoo, in my dream HuisyG and I were walking to work just chewing the fat, as one does, although at some point the dream morphed but I'm not going to blog the details of that part of the dream     that concerns a certain AnD artist (who actually hasn't blogged this year - tsk tsk).

Skinny Mission , some of you are like me - on a mission to shed some kilos.   Bloody hell it's hard.   One wouldn't believe that several years ago I did the Coast to Coast  (from Kumara on the West Coast to Sumner on the East Coast, South Island - run, bike and kayak 243 km across the Southern Alps) and the Kepler Challenge (60 km mountain run).  I was really fit and healthy and I let myself go kicks self hard  Here are some photos of these events.  I will not post photos of my worst weight moment until I have shed it all.  I must add that I started training for these events with no athletic history at all so my goal was merely to plod at the back and finish them - which I acheived

The Kepler Challenge, Dec 1998 - actually at this point, most of us are walking and just run past the camera guy .

The Coast to Coast, Feb 2000

   that's my finish line beer he is holding.

Anyhoo I am trying to get back into shape when last year I plateaued.   Bob the Biggest Loser guru says "you have to eat to lose weight" - he's worth marrying for that sentiment alone.  So I am not starving myself - and I never will coz that is stupid.  But I am going to have to start drinking trim milk in my tea sob, it's just not the same and as from today no alcohol (cept for my birthday which is later this month).  I grew up on beer and just love it but gave it away when I first started on my skinny mission.   Now I'm going to have to give wine and spirits a miss too.   Mind you my liver will probably thank me for it .  Here is my cousin and myself enjoying a cold brew in the seventies.  (I'm on the left)

Hope y'all enjoying the weekend

haha. Nope. No dark side for me. ;D Being skinny (skinnier? healthier?) is one way to get on the road to becoming healthier. Beer since you were a newborn, eh? haha. That's quite odd.

Wzaow. You Tarzan AND Jaine. So one day you just decided to cross the country? I'm impressed. How long did you train? How long did it take. I want more of a blog than that. Guess what? I'm on a skinny mission too. It's only 3 days now but it's been 3 strict days and tomorrows a 5 miler (just walking thank you) and today was a fitness DVD. I want to drop 30 yukky pounds by summer (in kilos that 13.64) - yeah, I let it get away from me big time. Mark/Narom inspired me and then over the weekend a friend brought some picture of me from my 2nd (now ex) wedding. I was frigging gorgeous---how'd this happen? uhhhh, alcohol hasn't helped. Good luck to you, and to me! I've thought about doing the Avon 60 mile breast cancer walk. That'd get me in shape.

OMG that picture of Etchy ahahah. This thing is dividing the boards haha. So who do we have so far--isn't it Etchy, Patrick, Boon & Stephen? Well I saw Boon getting picked on in Patrick's blog anyway, haven't checked out the situation today. They're gonna have to have Admin Bear be the neutral party in all this hahah. So glad to hear your dad's doing well. Tell him we're keeping the good wishes coming from all over the globe! :) Re: the teenage issue, don't know if the saying made it there but the one I've seen on mugs & tee shirts is "Trying to raise a teenager is like trying to nail jello to a tree". Ooh, I've been there & some of that stuff was ruff. Take heart cuz the end result will be worth it all. And it's kinda cool to see the stand they're making to become their own person. Hang in there! It's great you fulfilled your goal to complete a challenging athletic event! Good luck with what your doing now. My life is waaay too sedentary, I've got to get up off my butt & get moving. It's no good waiting till I feel like doing it, that time might never come. I need to make it part of my daily routine, not a decision I make every day. Good for you for doing well by yourself!

I've been on a pound-shedding mission for years. I actually did have some luck in 2007 and dropped 10 lbs. because of practicing taiji and qigong. But, *sigh,* there's more to lose! Good luck, Jaine!

lol....Etchy is getting hit hard, he's being tag teamed from all sides!!! I love the photos of you with the beer, In France kids grow up drinking wine, and Russia drinks Vodka, I don't think it does too much harm and probably prevents binge drinking in later life. The challengers you did looked extremely tough. I bet the beer was like water in a desert to you by the time you finished! Ooh the AnD dream sounds interesting, gotta find out who the artist is :DD Best of luck with the skinny mission, where do I sign up!

I'm on a skinny mission too! I don't weigh that much but I'm just curious to see how I'd look if I lost 8 pounds or so. You are really athletic, though! I don't have as much stamina. Good luck on the mission!

I am so impressed. Much respect to you my sister. That's funny about the AnD dream...yeah, I can't blame you for not wanting to put up all your dreams, but they are subconscious so we're not always responsible for the crazy stuff that comes out.

Congrats on your 1st AnD dream and actually remembering it :) Good for you on your mission. I think you should call it a fit mission rather a skinny mission. With all the rail thin bodies I keep seeing on screens and elsewhere, I'm starting to think that "skinny" may be a dirty word. What really matters is that you're healthy and happy. Very impressive how you did that Coast to Coast w/o any previous athletic training. You must have some natural athletic ability in you. I've actually been pretty much the same weight for many years now. Having to be on a restricted diet will do that. I'm also trying to exercise more now though.
