Failure is not an option!
Now my baby is six (that's not weeks, not months but *years*) I have decided it is time to finally ditch the baby weight (3st 9lb) Had a great start to 2013 setting out to train for and run the Nice half marathon in April before my 40th in May which I did along with 2 other half marathons loosing 18lbs into the process and looking hot in my dress at my party. But then undid the lot with 6 months of shameless birthday celebrations... Generally my eating is pretty good - no subsequent exercise & champagne drip to blame...
New Year new resolve! I have entered a sprint triathlon in June but before I get going on the training I want to nail target weight hence CD.
Picked up my plan on 2nd Jan mix of chocolate, strawberry and banana ready to drink which I chucked in the fridge and started with shake 1 on 3rd. Choc lovely, strawb nice, nana ok.
Husby has a bit to loose so he is joining me evenings & weekends which is a help esp.
Starting weight 13st 9lb (consultants scales crueller than mine) Now on day 3 and so far finding it relatively easy. Mentally I am in the zone and not allowing myself to be distracted by anything. I refuse to fantasise about food, drool over other people's food or torturing myself with thoughts of cheating. Instead I am focusing on my goal, embracing the challenge, finding fun things to do other than sit watching other people eat / drink, delighting in my progress (4lbs down and counting) and treating myself to an expensive naked photo shoot on target.
So if you are approaching this with the same single bloody minded focus and are determined to dig deep and stay positive through the journey (even the tough days - of which I am sure there will be a few) then I would love to do the ride with you!
