Thought I would post this here. So that I remember this important info.
Many years ago when I used to be heavily into weight training and fitness. Hmm like 20 years ago! I remember there was lots of talk about foods that are "Negative calories".  
Which basically means by the time you have chewed them you have used more calories than what was in the foods.
• Chew Your Food 25x before swallowing. This will save your body's energy stores and speed up your metabolism.
• Eat metabolism boosting foods. Some “negative calorie” foods are listed below.
List of Metabolism Boosting Foods:
• Apples
• Celery
• Garlic
• Lemons
• Mango's
• Onions
• Papaya
• Cabbage
• Lettuce • Avocado
• Carrots
• Berries
• Oranges
• Spinach
• Turnips
• Broccoli
• Tomatoes
• Zucchini • Nut milks
• Seed milks
• Asparagus
• Cucumbers
• Pineapple
• Grapefruit
• Cauliflower
• Raw Nuts & Seeds
• Green, Leafy Veggies
So I can't believe that it is already the 11th January 2013.

My poor little blog has been waiting her for me to come back and post.

My life is still all over the place at home and I am truly struggling to get back to the focused and goal driven me.   I found out during the week that my work hours are going to be cut right back again and there is no way my family can survive on that.  So I am back to seeking out a new job.  I am very excited as I enjoy working and getting the extra money.  But at the same times I start to stress out worrying about my son, school drop off/pick ups etc and getting my eating and training done.

I am sure like everything else. If I just stop with the worry everything will fall into place.

So I am heading off to the beach for a few days with my little man.

My weekly food menu semi planned.  At least at my mums holiday house she has an oven so I can make some of my fav recipes that I haven't been able to do for a while.  Freeze them and bring them back home.

I have also decided to set myself a goal of 65kgs this round with Michelle Bridges.  It's a huge task but one that I must finally achieve.  I haven't seen anything lower than 73/74 kilos on the scales.

Its time to make some serious step ups and changes.

I am currently hoovering around 77kgs kilos.  Its a big ask I know!
