Always a Resolution

Well... Gazzy in Tazzy is back in production... How this blog is gonna take shape?! We'll see... But I'm back..

It seems all of these types of things (weight loss plans, lifestyle change, etc) all seem to occur around New Years - and are over and forgotten about around February 1st...  Please don't let me be one of these resolution droppers - Again! Last year I think I posted about a return to form - and nothing really happened!

I have been doing some filming over the last week so I can edit together a January video at the end of the month... Monthly videos seem to be the best way for me to blog, so that's going to be the main focus - the videos, but with some other stuff as well... As most of you are probably already aware, Gazzy in Tazzy is on Facebook as well - Find me by clicking here.

I would love some ideas, suggestions, motivations, etc etc... So please, post away!!

I had one suggestion a few days ago that I do some kind of Fundraising thing - Dollars per Kilos Lost for a Charity of some type? I like the idea... What do you think?

Anyways... Keep your eyes out on here, and on Facebook and I'll be back soon...

Gazzy.

Sunday Catch-Up: Movie Preview Edition

Well... Another weekend is just about over and it's back to work tomorrow... 

What's been happening this week? Not too much, been staying pretty quiet, which is nice.. Been posting the Daily Food Reports on the Facebook Page.. (Click LIKE if you want to follow!)

I've not been too obsessed over food... I should be, but I'm not - I do think the Daily Food Reports make me think more about what I'm about to eat... Which is why I do it I guess... Not to feel guilty or anything, just so that I think about what I'm going to eat before I eat it.

And... I've been doing good with the gym - been focusing on cardio - been doing the C25K - Which I've attempted quite a few times - but feel like I'm making progress this time.. So, that's good. I'm on early shifts this week so will probably stick to cardio before work for this week and get back into the weights next week... But we'll see.

It's only been a few days since I posted, so there isn't a lot to write about, so I'm going to share a couple of movie trailers of movies I'm Really Looking forward to in 2013 - and these are the ones that I will probably (possibly, maybe... Not Sure) will do Gazzy In Tazzy Movie Reviews - Maybe.. :P

I'm Baaack!



O-M-G! It's 2013... Guess those Mayan's were wrong! 2012 wasn't the end of the world... Guess the Mayan calendar is like the one I have on the wall... 31-Dec it ends, so I get a new one... If the Mayan's were still around, I'm sure they would get a new one too... Silly Mayans!

Anyway... So, it's been about a year since I posted anything - FUCKING SLACK! Yes, I know.. I'm sorry... I could give you hundreds of excuses if you like? Wanna hear them?? No?? Why??

Oh - cos it's bullshit! Fair call... If they were legitimate, they'd be called reasons.. OK.. Look, I spent almost a year going hardcore and losing almost 60kg and since then, I've been "maintaining" more than anything. I've not been as active or strict.. I've been happier and enjoying my life more than being so concerned about dropping kilos...

2012 was a year of work and love and stuff... After the year of hard weight-loss work that was 2011, let's call 2012 my 'Gap Year'. I spent 2012 maintaining the loss I had had in 2011 and doing my best to enjoy life. I worked a lot, I went on 2 trips to Melbourne and I moved in with my partner, Adam... There were, of course, ups & downs in 2012 as there is in life no matter what you do.. But during this Gap Year - I was not focused on weight loss or fitness or measuring myself or any of that stuff - I was focused on living and enjoying the good stuff...

But the Gap Year is over and it's time to get back into gear - But I'll get to that in a minute..

The goal in 2011 was to reach 100kg... That didn't happen... And I'm actually a little sad to say, it didn't happen in 2012 either... Because I wasn't as dedicated and focused on THOSE goals in 2012. At the end of 2011 when I hadn't reached that goal, I was a bit down and upset about it... I spent a long time after that convincing myself that what I had already done was pretty awesome and I shouldn't be so hard on myself.. I'd done the hard yards and rest would be easier - look how far you've come already - and all that other stuff... And after a while that worked - too well - I was feeling good about what I'd accomplished... I was less strict on the diet and went to the gym only a few days a week - skipping it didn't bother me.. I started treating myself - convincing myself not to worry 'You've done it - enjoy it!'... I lost a little bit more, but mostly was maintaining the loss I'd already achieved...

But gym visits seemed to get further apart and treats were happening more often... and the scales (when I bothered to weigh in) went up and down and pretty much stayed around the same figure...

And now I'm here... So, what next?

A big part of my success, (I think), was this blog. In the very beginning it was a way of me venting my frustrations in all honesty.. I posted a lot of failures and a lot of false starts and half-assed attempts before I started getting it right and having the losses and results I really wanted.. And I think letting this blog become less important in my every day life was one of the reasons I've found it harder to keep going. This blog not only gave me an avenue to vent frustration, celebrate successes and talk about my challenges and stuff... It kept me honest. Before the video blog entries started, I felt I could be totally honest - an honesty that doesn't come as easily when you're looking into a camera knowing that people are going to be seeing your face.

So... As you may have noticed... The blog has had a bit of a revamp... Adam has designed a new blog banner/logo for me... It incorporates a sign that hangs in our house - 'Life isn't about finding yourself, Life is about Creating Yourself' - and that's what 2013 is going to be for me - CREATING MYSELF... Not a bad Before & After comparison shot either!

A person is constantly learning and growing and changing and adapting... And I want this year to be a time for me to not just Enjoy Life, but create new habits, routines, opportunities and experience new things...

As far as the blog (and weight-loss) goes... I'm setting up a new routine with a new focus on achieving the goals I want to reach! This blog has and always will be mostly based on Weight Loss and Fitness - That will NEVER change - But I want to incorporate other aspects of my life... Stuff I like, Stuff I do.. I've used by Bucket List (which I posted back in March 2011) as a bit of motivation as well...

So... I've planned my Workouts - when to weigh and measure, etc... And as far as blogging goes...
The plan is to have Daily Food Updates (either on the blog every day or on the Gazzy in Tazzy Facebook page as it happens) for at least all of January - and then I'll reevaluate if I think this is worthwhile/effective... I will also do Weekly Posts - 'Things I Like This Week' & 'Sunday Catch Up'... And Monthly Webisodes will be back, which will focus (mostly) on the weight loss aspects.

There are also some other health-related items on my 2013 agenda - Those of you who know me or have been reading/watching the blog for some time may recognise some of these as they are things I've been 'meaning' to do for some time - such as; Quit Smoking, Burnie 10 etc... But, I'll share them as they happen...

Adam has been supportive of the new blog and new stuff, which is great... He's going to help keep me on track... He's a very large part of my life, so I'm sure you'll get to know him a bit as we go as well...

And that's the plan for 2013...

And I must say - It's Good To Be Back! :)

Hi Everyone

I know it's been ages since I posted on here... And I am sorry. For those of you not following on Facebook... I haven't stopped... I've still been on the way to health and shit, just haven't had much to update on and/or footage to post for you.. So it's been a bit quiet. I want to change that! :)

To start us off... Here is my 2011 video. It includes some highlights of the year and a lot of bloopers (be warned, there is a fair bit of swearing involved.. So if the F Word bothers you, skip.. )

Please enjoy this look back at 2011 and let me know what you think... I look forward to what I can bring to you all in 2012...

Peace out, homie!

August Will Be My Bitch

A while back I posted about my break up and now it's been almost 3 months... and my friends are probably sick of me talking and talking and talking... and yes, the occasional break down. And this kind of emo-ness has made me slack when it comes to achieving my goals. Yes, I've still been loosing weight but my efforts have been half-assed.

It's a week into August and this week's weigh in was the worst result I've had in a long, long time... And you know what that means? GET THE FUCK MOVING AND DO SOMETHING YOU LAZY BASTARD!!!

So the rest of August is gonna be my bitch! I've talked to the wonderful Sherry Rand (KickStart Fitness - Links to Your Right!!) who is gonna help me with my motivation and get me back into the swing of things... And I've made other plans so that I'm busy for a while. I've got gym between 3 or 5 times a week... 2 group classes a week and a one-on-one training session for boxing... As well as all that I've started walking with my good friend Bianka, which is gonna turn into a walk/jog interval thing so we can get some more training for us to do the Burnie 10 in October! It's happening!

So, fitting all that in with work means I'm gonna be busy busy and I think I'm gonna be tired this week coming and then, hopefully, next week I will be in the routine of it all and I know, I know that after a few days I will start to feel more energetic and stuff... So.. Yay!

The big end-of-year goal was to get under 100... And, if I can keep my focus I WILL reach that goal before the end of October... That's my goal now.. 99.9kg by October 31st... After I reach that goal, I will reassess... I seriously have not thought beyond that under 100 goal.. And I don't want to till I get there...

So... that's gonna be my August... and September and October.. lol.. Working Hard.. And I'm looking forward to it... 

Gazzy.
