13 weeks to go!! Rosemary Conley and Tae Bo!!
I am getting married in June and I very quickly running out of time to lose weight, which I absolutely must do as I ordered a dress at least one size smaller than I currently am (I had given birth only 8 weeks before when I ordered my dress, and at the time I thought I had a ton of time to lose stone upon stone upon stone!)!!!
I lost a stone within 4 weeks of giving birth (plus weight of baby etc), but to be fair I expect that was mostly extra fluid etc. I haven't been that good since then, especially over Christmas, and like I said, I am now running out of time!!
I have kind of been good since 2nd jan (but not angelic!) and have managed to lose 5lbs. But considering I still want to lose of 2st 3lbs (though preferably more), that hasn't been good enough.
I need to religiously follow not just my diet plan, but also my exercise regime. So that is what I am doing here. Hopefully if I update this thread every day with my food and exercise log, it will help me to feel more accountable and stick to the bleeding thing! I also have rewards charts stuck to the fridge with little stickers, and the other half has been instructed to tell me off if he sees me eat anything naughty!!
So here it goes, I am following the Rosemary Conley plan, so calorie counting and not eating anything with more than 5% fat. So far I have found this works if I religously stick to it. However I need to make sure I plan my meals in advance so that it doesn't get to 10pm at night and I end up eating whatever is quickest!
I also intend to start exercising and am going to start doing Tae Bo. As much as a big part of me wants to exercise for 90mins each and every day, I know that isn't realistic, especially seen as I have a 4 month old daughter. So, here is my exercise plan for this week:
- Monday - Tae Bo basics - 25mins
- Tuesday - take baby for a walk in her pram (weather permitting) / 30mins wii fit
- Wednesday - Tae Bo basics - 25mins
- Thursday - take baby for a walk in her pram (weather permitting) / 30mins wii fit
- Friday - Tae Bo basics - 25mins
- Saturday - take baby for a walk in her pram (weather permitting) / 30mins wii fit
- Sunday - rest day
Diet plan for the week - obviously no more than 5% fat, and I am going to roughly follow her kick start plan, so I will be sticking to 1000-1200 calories a day.
I would be grateful if people/someone would comment on my thread as I log my progress etc. Perhaps there is someone else out there with a tight deadline and a lot to lose - we could spur each other on and perhaps set little challenges!!
Good luck to everyone!!
