Good luck hun
Thank you squeezyweezy. I'm loving reading Linda spangle's book. It's fab. I figured as the more intense my workouts get between C25K and shred then the more kcals I should have so that's my theory. I see there's been a bit of a discussion about wether u should eat ur exercise kcals back or not. I'm not planning to. I'm not going to eat just for the sake of eating coz I've exercised. I don't see the logic in that at all. But I will allow myself the odd treat without feeling bad about it :-) xx

but tomorrow is another day and i will keep to the 1000 kcals as stated 2moro. never got any exercise done today as i must have lay funny in bed last nite and have had a creak in my neck all day. so hot bath and bed with a hot water bottle at my neck methinks.!!
i am not going to let these minor setbacks derail me in the slightest. any other time i would have said 'sod it' i'll start again on monday but not now. i am going to complete my 100 days of weight loss and even if everyday isnt perfect at least its a step in the right direction. like today, say i hadnt of started my diet, i would have ate crap all day and then came home to that pie and ice-cream. at least the fact that i cc'd all day will reduce the impact slightly. so less harm done.
going to take spangle to bed with me and prepare for day 2.
hope everyone else is doing well. will log on on the iphone later and start reading round some of ur diaries to keep me motivated. bye for now xx

Hi Emz and welcome back to the old tried and tested CC
Sounds like you have positivity and that is just how I would have looked at the scrummy sounding blueberry pie - your day could have been worse for sure so you still made headway in my biased opinion... but why oh why do I not have neighbours like you.... I'd love to be called over to a house that served desserts like that... oh wait maybe not at the moment LOL
Anyway still a good start either way!

so full concentration 2moro. day 2 of spangle asks u to think if u are 'interested' or 'committed' to your diet.......has definately got me thinking.
Day 2 off to a good start. :-) today is a 1000kcals day. Fruit salad and a yoghurt for brekkie. Oh and plenty of water lol :-)
Neck is a lot better this morning so hopin to do some exercise tonight ;-) xx
Hey! Welcome to CC'ing! I've seen you post in some diaries so you've probably read some of my thoughts on the whole 'what's good for you' polava. Rosemary Conley has some great principles that I live by: like most foods you buy should be 5% fat or less.
Best of luck, ask away if you've got any questions
Thank you happyhealthy..
It was actually ur post when u reflected on your weightless journey that gave me the kick up the bum. I want to be able to tell my 51lbs to kiss my skinny ass by Christmas..!! :-D lol. Yeah I'm very much in to the way of 5% fat or less. I did RC in jan and lost 6lbs the first week so I know it can be done.!! But if I stick to my exercise plan I'm not going to deny myself a wee high fat treat every now and then.
You have done soo soo well on your journey. U are my inspiration so thank you :-) :-) xxx
-wipes tears- thank you for saying that Emz.
I've undergone my own personal transformation - I've lost 67 lbs, going from a size 18 to a size 6/8. I missed most of my teens, hid from the camera, removed myself from physical activity, and slowly became a bigger, unhappier me.
I changed all that. It wasn't any one thing. It wasn't the latest diet. It wasn't a fat loss pill.
It simply was determination, will-power, and a never-look-back attitude.
My goal now is to inspire and help other women like me find their own journey - their own transformation. And if you say that I inspire you then that makes me well up with happiness. That's such a lovely thing to say and I truly thank you ever so much
Good luck :-)
I bought the rosemary Conley mag as well - it's very interesting reading and some fab meal ideas xx
