Where am I right now

I'm drinking a glass of Merlot wine while doing this entry tonight....:)

For the last while my eating has not been stella....I've been snacking and not eating proper lunches like I know I should.
I also have not been drinking my 3 cups of Green if I'm lucky and not enough water...some days as little as two glasses...when I'm cold I really struggle with water...I want to drink coffee instead.
I've been having toast and peanut butter most lunch times...
I bought ingredients for my fav Green shake last week and never made one!!!
I have to throw the plain yogurt away as past sell by date now.
So what I'm saying here is since Italy, I have not been very good with my eating..
I dont eat bad foods, but just not the way I normally eat so its rattling me a bit.

On the 1st November I'm joining a few of the ladies on my online group to do the 17 DD again as this plan works...I have lots of energy and drop kg's.
I want to get my eating under control before I go on my South African 8 week holiday in a months time...
If I don't I fear returning having gained weight and this is something I've never done before.

My training is going that department I am totally in control
I run 4 x a week always 8km or more, never less
I do kettlebell for strength training
I teach 2 class and PT once a week...

I'm enjoying the next few days before the eating plan starts....hence the red wine tonight as once on plan that is something I cant have..
I have warned my hubby that I will be doing this plan....

Weight wise am still holding my maintenance weight...

The way I see it, isn't necessarily the way you see it.

Weekend chat

This weekend we had cold minus temps in the morning and by the afternoon a high ( hahaha ) of 10 degrees...still cold, but the sun was out and the sky was blue...I can deal with the cold weather when the sun is out and the sky is blue, I cant when it rains and the sky is Grey...sometimes we have this for weeks on end and I really do get very far so good, but do know that in about 5 weeks I will be heading off to Cape Town, South Africa for sunshine as it will be summer time there...3 months of summer....while Europe is freezing, bliss I cant wait...I will not be envying everyone in the snow this year I promise....I just cant face having to return to snow...but then THANKFULLY :) two weeks after I return to Germany from South African I head out to Abu Dhabi, the land of heat and sunshine all year round.
Okay, I know I just bragged a little...but am honestly so excited about our planning to go home this year as I really struggle in the cold and even more so since I lost the weight...the weight helped keep me warm...but if I had to chose the weight or being warm, I chose this weight!!

I did Kettlebell toning workout with my 10kg KB on Friday for 45 mins
Saturday, Hubby and I ran for 9.5km
Sunday my neighbor and I ran or 7.92 km
So am happy that I did my training this weekend...

Now I look forward to next week...

One PT session
Teach Step class
Teach KB class
Then the rest I will decided when I wake as need to see what the weather is like and what I'm in the mood for.
Wednesday will be my off day this coming week as take my car in for a service and then have my nails done.
